The Mirror's website said:
"This cream blew the competition out of the water, with testers loving the immediate as well as the long term effects. Words like fresher, radiant and glowing came up over and over, as well as that holy grail of night cream compliments: just not looking so darn tired."
Their testers said:
"This is a facelift in a jar! I have a deep line between my eyebrows - at first I didn't think it was making a difference but after two weeks it was greatly reduced. After four, it's still there but not noticeable at all. My fine wrinkles seemed to have gone or at least are very fine now."Tracey Quine, Shropshire, UK
"A friend said my complexion looked glowing and asked if I’d changed my make-up! I can only put it down to this. I have used many night creams, from the cheapest to the most expensive I could afford, and I can honestly say this is the best of the best and I’d love to keep using it."Cheryl Davies, Merseyside, UK
And it’s not only Notebook readers who love the Overnight Lavender Mask, our customers love it too!
"Smells fresh and the lavender fragrance certainly helps my sleep. Easy to apply after cleansing my face. In the morning my complexion is clear and bright and my cheeks appear plumped. A wonderful product."Patricia C Age: 61+

Sleep is vital to beautiful skin. A lack of it can deregulate the skin’s natural repair and protection processes that occur whilst we sleep. Not only does the Manuka Doctor Overnight Lavender Mask contain Lavender Oil to help you relax and promote a restful night’s sleep, it also contains Glycerin and Albizia Julibrissin Bark to help reawaken a tired and dull looking complexion. Nopal Plant to help speed up the skin’s natural exfoliation process and regenerate new skin. Manuka honey and Hyaluronic acid to boost skin's hydration, increase firmness and refine the appearance of wrinkles. These hard working natural ingredients protect and repair the proteic structures, which in turn promote the visible reduction of dark circles, under eye bags, a dull complexion and drawn features, leaving skin feeling hydrated, plump and healthy. Brighter eyes and a plumped complexion are just a night’s sleep away!
