Dermalogica Sound Sleep Cocoon (& giveaway)

We all know our skin repairs itself at night, so it makes sense it help it along.

I hardly ever use night creams, as I find most of them far too rich – even my dry skin. That was until I tried Dermalogica’s Sound Sleep Cocoon (R1399 for 50ml).

This transformative night gel-cream helps to optimize that overnight recovery within your skin. It contains actives to beat the signs of fatigue, calm any irritation, deeply hydrate and generally ensure you wake up with brighter, plumper skin than you went to sleep with. Sound too good to be true? 

I thought so too, but the proof is in the results. It’s not often I can say that I wake up looking like I’ve literally just had a facial, but that’s exactly what it does, and I’ve really out it to the test.

My insomnia has been horrific for the last few months, and some nights I’m awake by 23h30 and I stay awake until the next night. Obviously the days after, I’m not feeling great, but on more than one occasion, people have commented on how glowy my skin looks – hilarious considering how I’d be feeling on the inside. So if it can give me a noticeable glow on less than 2 hours sleep, then it will definitely do the same for you!

The texture is feather-light and absorbs instantly, immediately leaving your skin soft and hydrated. The scent is heavenly too, but only if you enjoy the scents of lavender, sandalwood and patchouli.  If you don’t, or are allergic to lavender, maybe give it a miss.

If you’re a mum, stressed or have dull winter-ravaged skin, I would highly recommend giving this a try to get your glow back.

  • Suzanne

    I haven’t tried Dermalogica before ☹️. I would love to try this Sound Sleep Cocoon – when I saw your post on Facebook I immediately wanted to know more about this product. Sounds exactly what I need.

  • Kim

    Daily Microfoliant is definitely my favourite product.
    Would love to try the the sound sleep cocoon ?

  • Nadia Hall

    DERMALOGICA has so many amazing products so It’s hard to choose a favourite ?

    The one product which works well for me is the SKIN HYDRATING BOOSTER. Especially in this colder dryer weather which seems to leave my skin feeling dryer than usual ?

  • Yvette

    It’s not easy to narrow it down to one favourite product :). I have only tried a sample of the sound sleep cocoon and loved it! I love using the biolumin-c serum and the calm water gel is also amazing. I also struggle to find the right night cream and think the sound sleep cocoon would be perfect.

  • Barbara Davies

    My favourite product is the age reversal eye complex from the Age Smart range. It is a potent retinol cream especially reducing the appearance of fine lines. The results are amazing.

  • Marietjie Pienaar

    I love all dermalogica products but my two favorites are the pre cleanse oil and the microfoliant.

  • Natalie

    I love the Daily Microfoliant. If I am able to buy just one of their products, it’s always my first choice.

  • Portia Koenane

    Dermatologica’s Sound Sleep Cocoon is my favourite as a new mom with dry chapped cheeks & forehead due to harsh cold winter weather it would deeply nourish & hydrate my skin

  • Taryn Peters

    My fave would have to be the ultrasmoothing eye serum but this tired, aging mamma could really do with trying the sound-sleep cacoon zzzzz

  • Terri-Ann Schmidt

    Well that’s a challenge as the range is fab, but if I had to choice my favourite it would be the Ultra smoothing Eye Serum,

  • Yonde Thomas

    My all time favourite Dermalogica product is the Skin Hydrating Masque because it gives me that glow that you’re talking about – I also struggle with insomnia really badly. Unfortunately the mask should only be used about twice a week so I’d absolutely love to win this giveaway, so I can wake up after a few hours of sleep and look refreshed EVERY morning! Thank you for the opportunity to win with you ❤️

    Definitely the Prisma Protect SPF 30, lightweight and absorbent – perfect under make-up!! Would love to try the Dermalogica Sound Sleep cocoon though. #fingerscrossed
