Hi there! Today’s post is about this Smack Beauty Sleeping Beauty Firming Night Cream. This night cream is aimed at all skin types, and it promises to target the depth and volume of lines and wrinkles, to tackle dryness, to rejuvenate the skin, and to make skin feel uplifted, firmer and more supple.
This night cream contains retinol, shea butter, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, tamarind fruit extract, pumpkin seed extract, and a few other botanical extracts.
I’ve used this night cream for 4 weeks now, and I think it’s good but not great. It provides light hydration which would most likely be perfect for normal to oily skin types, but it’s not sufficient for dry skin. I also don’t think that this night cream makes a difference to how my skin feels or looks.
At the moment I’m also using Boots’ marvellous No 7 serum which seems to boost all the products I’m using. So I’ve tried this night cream without the Boots serum. I’ve seen quite a difference, and based on this I have to credit Boots with any improvement in my skin!
What else? I like that this night cream has plenty of botanical extracts. There’s a bunny image on the back of the box – I’m not sure if they’re trying to say the product is cruelty-free. I hope it is!
Smack Beauty Sleeping Beauty Firming Night Cream is available as 60g. I paid £3 (clearance) but TK Maxx showed the original price was over £20. I’m not sure if this is correct, but I don’t think this night cream is worth anywhere near that. I do think it’s comparable with drugstore night creams in the £5 – £10 price range, and I think this night cream would be a good product for a younger woman (<30) with normal to oily skin.

Hi there! I forgot to do a haul post last month, so today I’m showing you what I bought in September and October. 🙂
I bought a set of 5 SpaScriptions face masks – the set was £4.99. I also bought a set of 5 panda face masks – this set was £4.99 as well. TK Maxx
I bought a Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Mask (£4), a large 1kg Kallos Multivitamin hair mask (£7.99), and a Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Creamy Cleanser (£4). TK Maxx
I picked up 3 Superdrug items – a Salted Caramel Shower & Bath Soak (£1.47), a Glycolic Tonic (=toner) and another Glycolic Overnight Peel to replace the one I finished. The last 2 products were £5.99 each, but there was a buy 1 get 1 free offer, so I paid £5.99 in total for the 2 Naturally Radiant products.
I got a few more masks – I couldn’t resist those Hunny Bee grapefruit masks (£4.99 for a set of 5 masks), and I bought another SpaScriptions mask set (£4.99 for a set of 5 masks). TK Maxx
I found an Argan & Marula shampoo and conditioner combo (99p each) and a My Little Pony shower gel (99p). Home Bargains
I got another Superfacialist Rose Hydrate product – I bought the Day Cream (£6.99), and I picked up 2 Sanctuary Spa Being fragrances (£3.75 each). And I spent £6.99 on my Superfacialist Vitamin C + Brighten night cream. TK Maxx, Boots
The Zatik Passionfruit Cacao Lotion was £5, the Scinic Vita Ade Eye Cream was £6, and the Scinic Sparkling Pore Toner was £6 as well. TK Maxx
I bought a big It’s True Moisture Cream (£9.99), a Smack Beauty Firming Night Cream (£3), and another Hunny Bee mask set (£4.99 for 5 masks). TK Maxx
I got my hands on a Skin Care Chemist Macadamia Beauty Oil (£3), and I bought a Sukin Chia Seed Oil+ Foaming Facial Cleanser set. The set was £7.99 which is excellent value because the chia seed oil is usually £14.95 on its own! TK Maxx
And I bought 2 big jars of compressed sheet masks. These were £4.99 each. The bamboo jar contained 22 masks, the assorted jar contained 23 masks. TK Maxx
This is everything I bought in September and October. It’s quite a lot, I think. 🙂 Have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try any of them? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!
