With the royal family’s near-constant coverage by the press, it’s no surprise that every photo captured of Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, reveals a fresh, vibrant glow that’s simply unparalleled. Needless to say, if there’s any chance we can get our hands on the same spotless radiance, we’ll be the first in line to grab their regimen for ourselves.
Luckily for us, that dream is now a reality—at least for one reportedly shared favorite between the two: the Beuti Skincare Beauty Sleep Elixir!
If you’ve been keeping tabs on the two royals, then technically this isn’t fresh news. Since 2016, renowned publications like Allure, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, People, and The Telegraph have reported that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are huge fans of the clean beauty oil—even during their pregnancies.
Beuti Skincare founder, Leila Aalam, shared that “Kate loves it so much, she has three bottles on her bedside table.” And with such a potent, antioxidant-rich blend, how could she not? It’s made with all-natural, nutritional skin-loving ingredients for skin that’s soft, supple, and glowing.
MEET THE BEUTI SKINCARE BEAUTY SLEEP ELIXIR
So why exactly does this magical bottle of oil have the royal seal of approval? We’ll tell you: it targets anti-inflammaging.
In other words, it’s meant to combat chronic redness, inflammation, and the signs of aging. And this powerful elixir does so by sinking 14 precious plant-based oils quickly into the skin to treat concerns not only on the surface, but also issues deep underneath—like a ruined skin barrier and collagen and elastin degradation.
The whole idea behind it came to Leila after she experienced a severe allergic reaction from a luxury brand. After hours and hours of research, she realized so many products out there contained toxic chemicals and irritants that are harmful for our overall health.
Eventually, she found out that almost all common skincare issues—such as redness, irritation, and hormonal acne—can all be prevented (and even reversed!) with the right amounts of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories.
And since this Beauty Sleep Elixir is sourced from the best ingredients, based on proper, thorough research, and underwent copious amounts of testing, there’s no doubt that this has the ability to boost any complexion to appear smooth and unbelievably radiant.
WHAT WE REALLY THINK
We know some people are skeptical about using a facial oil on already oily skin in Philippine weather. But mix together the right kinds of oil, the proper blend can do everything from soothe and nourish to restore balance back to the skin barrier, without the greasy feeling.
Of course, that’s all hearsay until we take this out for a test drive. So, naturally, we decided to give this a whirl for ourselves! And in this case, three people from the office with different skin types—oily-combination, dry, and sensitive-combination—gave this a go for a couple of weeks to see if the formula truly lives up to the hype. Scroll for our reviews!
JOANNA, OILY-COMBINATION SKIN
“My skin would normally get irritated by different new products, but not with this. Instead, it felt more plump and deeply moisturized without being too oily. And since some areas on my face tend to get dry and flaky, I noticed that this oil completely banished those and appeared much healthier.”
“Another thing: this did not break me out. In fact, it felt like it sped up the healing process of past scars. I would recommend this to EVERYONE—from people with dry, sensitive skin to people who often break out. This works wonders to treat adult acne.”
PATTY, DRY SKIN
“I used this Sleep Elixir as both a spot treatment and all-over-the-face oil on a trip to London. On the way, I broke out on my cheek—thanks to the long, drying flight and sudden weather change—and this oil really helped heal my pimple faster.
It’s been my go-to in the AM, which keeps my skin moisturized while sitting well under sunscreen and makeup. Then at night, I would put on a light layer all over my face and concentrate more of the product on my zit.”
“What’s more, I feel like it also helped brighten my other blemishes as well! It’s a bit pricey, but so, so worth it considering it’s a multitasking oil that’s a joy to use, absorbs super quickly, and leaves skin feeling soft and supple.”
ANN, SENSITIVE-COMBINATION SKIN
“My skin was the worst it has ever been—there was redness, it felt raw, and it was so itchy. I literally had wounds by my mouth and couldn’t use my usual moisturizer or sunscreen because it would sting.
This oil was given to me as a gift and came at just the right time cause it healed my skin in a way nothing else could. It was literally the only thing I could use that was anti-aging, moisturizing, and clean, as well as sit nicely under anything else I’m going to apply. It was basically, for me, like a miracle.”
“Now, the only thing I use is a Cetaphil cleanser, this beauty oil, and my Dear Klairs sunscreen. That’s it. No toner, nothing else. And this stuff is so tipid. It seems pricey, but I’ve been using this for a month and have barely made a dent in the bottle.
Honestly, I was a huge non-believer because my skin reacts with everything. This was the last thing I thought would help, but it’s the only oil I’ve tried that really sinks into my skin and repairs noticeable damage”.
HOW TO USE THE BEUTI SKINCARE BEAUTY SLEEP ELIXIR
As you can tell, we’re just as smitten with the stuff like our two favorite royals! (No wonder they stock up at Kensington Palace.) So if you’re thinking about treating yourself to a bottle, here’s a look at exactly how you can use it to make the most out of the holy-grail serum.
AS A NIGHTTIME MOISTURIZER
1. On the last step of your skincare routine, apply 2-4 drops of the Beauty Sleep Elixir directly onto your face.
2. Gently spread the oil all over in upward movements.
3. Pat skin until oil is fully absorbed.
AS A SPOT TREATMENT
1. Properly cleanse skin.
2. Add a small drop of Beauty Sleep Elixir onto a clean finger and apply directly on affected area until oil has fully absorbed.
AS A MAKEUP PRIMER
1. Following your skincare routine, apply 2-3 drops of Beauty Sleep Elixir onto the face.
2. Gently spread all over until oil fully seeps into the skin.
3. Apply makeup afterwards.
With the indie beauty brand becoming even more accessible worldwide, you’ll be able to spot them in places like Harvey Nichols in London, Ireland, and Hong Kong, premiere physical retailer Credo Beauty in the U.S., Amazingy in Germany, Blu-Kat in Sweden, and other countries like France, Portugal, and Canada.
