The Night Treatments within The Inkey List are a newer category full of innovation and brilliant product.

It’s a category I am really excited about and I look forward to seeing how and if they build on the success of Tranexamic Acid, C50 and Ceramide Night Treatments.

Keep reading to find out more!

Ceramide Night Treatment

INCI: Aqua (Water/ Eau), Butylene Glycol,Glycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate,Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) SeedOil, Carbomer, Phenoxyethanol,Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/SodiumAcryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer,Benzyl Alcohol, Squalane, SodiumLauroyl Lactylate, Sodium PCA,Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium StearoylGlutamate, Sodium Lactate, Arginine,Aspartic Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin,Sodium Gluconate, PCA, Polysorbate60, Dehydroacetic Acid, CeramideNP, Glycine, Alanine, SorbitanIsostearate, Ceramide AP,Phytosphingosine, Serine,Cholesterol, Valine, Xanthan Gum,Isoleucine, Proline, Threonine,Histidine, Phenylalanine,Ceramide EOP.

Think of the Ceramide Night Treatment as an intensive moisture boosting overnight mask.

It’s packed with hyaluronic acid, hydrating oils and ceramides to build the skins barrier and keep the skin healthy by replenishing the lipids. It keeps moisture in the skin and allows the skin to reach optimum function.

I think this is going to save a lot of peoples skins this Winter!


INCI:Aqua (Water/ Eau), Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Tranexamic Acid, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, 1-Methylhydanto- in-2-Imide, Sodium Acrylates Copolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxide, Cetearyl Olivate, Benzyl Alcohol, Sorbitan Olivate, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Lecithin, Squalane, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Gluconate, Polysorbate 60, Dehydroacetic Acid, Lactobacillus Ferment, Sorbitan Isostearate.

Tranexamic Acid is the new kid on the block within the skincare world, but as with polyglutamic acid this is another example of The Inkey List pioneering the ingredient and being one of the first to launch and focus on this ingredient. It is no surprise we are now seeing it everywhere.

Tranexamic Acid is a derivative of an amino acid we produce in our body. This is important because our body recognises this and is able to allow this to work. It is made for skins who want a even complexion and target hyperpigmentation specifically.

This Night Treatment is a gel serum that uses 2% Tranexamic acid in combination with 2% Vitamin C. I think combining this with another widely proven brightener is great because so often actives work well in tandem to achieve a particular goal.

I’m yet to put this to test but I am really excited to try it out.  I’m not entirely sure as to whether this will be enough to tackle pigmentation alone but I’ll be adding it to an already extensive skincare routine so I think I might see results quicker. I’ll let you know as soon as I finish the bottle!



INCI:Aqua (Water/ Eau), Propanediol, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Salicylic Acid, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside, Xanthan Gum, Glycerin, Sodium Hydroxide, Madecassoside, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydroxyacetophenone, Sodium Gluconate, Sodium Metabisulfite, Lecithin, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Nelumbo Nucifera Flower Extract, Nymphaea Coerulea Flower Extract, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil.

The C-50 Night Treatment from The Inkey List is one of few Vitamin C products designed with blemish prone skin in mind. Sometimes Vitamin C can be tricky for skins that struggle with breakouts, I know I’ve often felt that I had to make the choice between blemish control and brightening.

Luckily this serum stage product is a medium weight jelly texture, contains a mixture of Vitamin C (5% Ascorbyl Phosphate) and 2% Salicylic Acid. Making it a beautiful, gentle yet intensive brightening product for all skin types, but especially for those of us who haven’t yet found one we can use without any irritation.
