Midnight Magic: Harness The Restorative Powers of Sleep with Guerlain’s Orchidée Impériale Night Ritual
With today’s hectic urban lifestyles leading to one in two women suffering from sleep deprivation, Guerlain has developed a new regenerative night-time regime—comprising the Orchidée Impériale Sleeping Serum and L-Roller massage tool—designed to deliver radiant-looking skin, however many hours of sleep you actually managed to achieve.

Guerlain’s expert research team were inspired to create the Orchidée Impériale Night Ritual after uncovering the dramatic effects that oxygen deficiency, known as hypoxia, has on the skin. Insufficient oxygen means that skin cells lose vital energy, causing your complexion to look dull, uneven and puffy; whilst hypoxia naturally hits its peak after 10pm, the skin’s oxygen supply is also hindered by lying with your face down and pressed against your pillow during sleep, leading to the constriction of fluids within your skin and the formation of sleep wrinkles.
In order to combat the effects of night-time hypoxia, Guerlain crafted the Orchidée Impériale Sleeping Serum, featuring a superhero duo of orchids that power the brand’s Night Cell Respiration Technology, which boost cell longevity and thus reduce skin’s visible signs of ageing.
Blended with soothing and firming plant extracts, the Night Cell Respiration Technology works to maximise cell energy production and accelerate regeneration—smoothing and firming your complexion, and decreasing puffiness and wrinkles.
The Orchidée Impériale Sleeping Serum also boasts a cutting-edge micro-emulsion formula made up of micro-droplets; smaller than the diameter of skin cells, this ensures that the serum’s ingredients diffuse more effectively into the skin.
A Transformative Routine
Meanwhile, Guerlain has also designed an exclusive L-Roller massage tool and draining-effect massage method to further enhance the Orchidée Impériale Sleeping Serum’s rejuvenatory benefits.
Every night, smooth the serum onto both sides of your face, lightly tapping your fingertips across your complexion, moving outwards from the centre of the face. Next, use the L-Roller to apply light pressure to the face’s lymph areas, again working outwards from the centre. This action helps dramatically tone and decongest your complexion, reducing puffiness when you wake.
Finally, apply pressure at various points around your mouth, on your temples and between your eyebrows to boost cell energy and kick-start your circulation. In the morning, simply repeat the L-Roller massage at the end of your skincare routine for an even greater toning effect on your complexion.
Forget counting sheep with its potent age-defying combination of cell regeneration technology and ultra-toning massage technique, Guerlain’s Orchidée Impériale Night Ritual aims to wholly revitalise your complexion, giving your skin the best night of sleep ever.
