Another brand I discovered from the back of Instagram alone (I swear that platform introduces me to all my newest favourite beauty brands) is The Hero Project – an innovative skincare brand focusing on oils, serums and moisturisers. Firstly – let me share with you this beauuuutiful packaging for their Night Drops product, the stress less age defying elixir.
This product stood out to me first purely based on its appearance. I mean how pretty would the shiny rose gold bottle look on a dressing table? Literally one of the most stunning bottles. However, its not the exterior what counts, it’s obviously whats inside that we care about. So read on for the review…
In a nutshell, Night Drops from The Hero Project is a powerful serum developed to help reduce the visible signs of stressed-out, prematurely-ageing skin, working to encourage a brighter, hydrated-looking complexion. It also has the added benefit of a super-soothing formula which helps to relax your senses and unwind with its balanced blend of essential oils. Well, it wouldn’t be a complete ‘Night Time’ essential if it didn’t have some added sleep therapy I guess!
The ingredients include a blend of neroli, lavender, chamomile, patchouli, rosemary and vetiver essential oils, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide. I feel like Niacinamide is a real key ingredient at the moment, becoming more well known for its mega superpowers! It’s actually one of those wonderful all-rounders, improving the skin’s barrier function, increasing hydration, brightening skin, improving uneven skin tone and pigmentation, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles (the one we all care about the most!). There’s 10% of this bad boy packed into Night Drops, so you know from the offset your skins in good hands.
I’ve been using around 2-3 drops massaged into my skin at night in place of my usual night time moisturiser, and it’s so lovely to smell the lavender, rosemary and chamomile just before I climb into bed, its really relaxing – the kind of scent you need lingering around when you have a busy mind at bedtime.
I can tell this product is also packed with copious amounts of hyaluronic acid, as I wake up in the morning after using this with super soft, supple, fresh looking skin, like its been given a shot of moisture whilst I sleep. Which is more than ideal for this time of year when I’m cranking up the central heating to the maximum!
Two other products from The Hero Project I’ve been trying out this week include the Hyasoft Instant Moisture Boost, and the Undo Bi-Phase Waterproof Makeup Remover, which although aren’t as pretty to look at as the stunning Night Drops bottle (and the Glow Drops bottle too is real impressive), they work a treat.
The makeup remover comes with one of those reeeeally handy lid dispensers that I’ve only ever spotted before at the nail therapist when I get my gel nails done, and they press the lid down onto a cotton round and the liquid saturates the pad. The micellar eye makeup remover makes light work of even the toughest of makeup looks, effortlessly removing all stubborn eye makeup whilst soothing and conditioning the skin and lashes.
It’s quite a dream to use. You just shake the bottle (chamomile and cornflour are two key ingredients when I looked into them), use the magic pump to dispense, and swipe gently around the eyes for instant removal. Amazing for lazy girls like myself who just want to click their fingers when getting into bed and makeup is removed (OK so it’s not that quick…)
The Hyasoft Instant Moisturse Boost is the most recent of products I’ve been using, so I only have a couple of days to report on. But so far, absolutely no problems whatsoever. It comes out at a clear gel, loaded with B5 (known for skin softening) and hyaluronic acid, and it’s definitely giving my skin that nourished, plumped, moisturised feel.
Another bonus to this moisture boost product is to combat the look of dull, tired skin, so I’ll be looking out for signs of that in the next few weeks!
Overall, I’m impressed so far with the range of products I’ve tried at The Hero Project. They sit between the prices of £15 – £30, so fairly mid range, but they do seem to deliver what they promise (and a couple of them look super attractive too!). Next on my list to try will hopefully be the Glow Drops – the one everyone seems to be talking about!
