I have been testing out Flashback Night Cream from Time Bomb Co for quite a long time now, longer than I usually test a moisturiser so I feel it’s remiss of me not writing this up before!
If you don’t know about Time Bomb Co, it’s Lulu’s brand created by her with the original John Freida haircare team. Lulu has long been interested in skincare and was finding that existing products were not giving her the results that she wanted as she was getting older. She turned to her friend Gail Federici who worked in the original John Freida company and she started making products for Lulu. When journalists were commenting on how amazing Lulu looked rather than her music Lulu knew she was onto something and Time Bomb Co was born.
Flashback Night Cream is based on the principal of a paraffin wax hand treatment you can get when having a manicure, it leaves your skin so soft and smooth and really locks in moisture to your skin. What I love about Flashback is that the company have used natural oils rather than mineral oil based paraffin (I am sure you are all aware of my hatred of mineral oil!!) The waxy texture comes from Rice Bran Oil, there is also Wheat Germ Oil, Shea Butter, Borage Oil and Hyaluronic acid in the formula. Before I tried it I was concerned that it would be far too heavy for my oily skin, but I was pleasantly surprised.
Flashback Night Cream is deceptively light, you don’t need a lot. I use a small spatula full for my face and neck, once you have warmed it in your hands it spreads so easily. It is packed full of moisture but not once did it break me out, I layered it with serums and oils, it locked those in and in the morning my skin felt plump and beauifully soft, and no greaseball face! I have to say I also adore the fragrance which comes from pure Lavender essential oil, it helps me wind down in the evening and I find it very comforting.
I would definitely repurchase this, it is a fabulous moisturiser and have thoroughly enjoyed using it. Flashback really surprised me, I really didn’t expect to like it as much as I did. For a 50ml size it is £36.00 direct from Time Bomb Co, however it is also stocked by QVCUK so you will probably find a keener price there.
Till next time,
