I used the oil-free version of Night-A-Mins for about two to three months (an entire jar's worth). I have recently quit using it, however, because it has caused my forehead to break out and it also caused an increase in blackheads. Upon waking up, my skin did look softer (though not by much), so the effectiveness is questionable...especially when it is doing more harm than good.
The cream itself is hydrating, and smells pleasant. The texture is nice, though a little heavy at first, but dries well and is not tacky or sticky on the face. It feels a bit thicker than a gel, but not quite like a cream. The product comes in a jar,so it is not very sanitary unless you have a spatula of sorts or a little spoon.
I don't really have a whole lot of good to say for it- my wrinkles were not reduced, though it did help alleviate red spots (as well as cause some new ones). Because of this, I would not suggest it.
Overall- I would not repurchase it, based strictly on the fact that it broke me out. I do have sensitive skin, so if you do not have sensitive skin this product may be a better fit for you.
I really enjoyed the sample I received of this thick rich luxurious night cream. The powerful citrusy smell was a bit offending but it moisturizer my irritated skin wonderfully. However, the price is outrageous!!!! $41 for such a tiny jar. No thank you. I now use Simple 24h day/night cream which is equally hydrating for a fraction of the price.
This is pretty good moisturizer. It's just not for me. I have normal to dry skin with large pores around my nose area. I've been working on that area and am carful with products I use that they don't enlarge those pores more... And well this did :/. I still think it's great if u do not have the same problem. my skin would be super soft in the morning and very dewy.
This is a first impressions review as I have only used the product once. With continued use, if I notice any adverse effects I will update my review.
The cream is heavily fragranced so if you are sensitive to scents you may want to stay away. To me it smells strongly of citrus, a little artificial but not offensive. After application I did not even notice the scent anymore so I'm not bothered by it.
Night-a-mins claims to have time released resurfacers (vitamins) so that you wake up with supple and bright skin. I have combination skin: oily t-zone and patches of flakey dry skin. Since the weather is turning cooler, I have been dealing with stubborn flakes that won't go away. In comes Night-a-mins! I woke up to smooth, shine free (as opposed to the usual oily), and flake free skin. Can't say whether my skin seems less dull but I'm pleased that my skin now appears balanced. Perhaps it's the squalene in the cream? For reference, I was using hyaluronic acid moisturizers prior to this to no avail.
Love this moisturizer is amazing. I love the relaxing smell as well although it's not for everyone. Wake up with a fresh looking skin every morning.
I did not care for the scent of this. I do not think it is a relaxing bedtime type of scent at all. It sorta reminds me of the Bliss Youth as we know it night cream.
It starts off with the same type of orange citrus scent or orange peel but this has a slight herbal scent in it like rosemary. It dries down to the herbal scent which smells just like a rosemary spritz I have. I am not fond of the scent at all, nor is it anyway relaxing to me. Makes me feel like I am in a herb store.
As for my skin it looked very greasy and seemed to sit on the surface a bit. When I would feel my skin it felt very nice and not sticky but I could tell there was something on my skin.
In the morning I would wake up with a super shiny face. I have oily skin that gets shiny soon after cleansing but usually in the mornings it is not bad. My skin looked almost tired maybe kinda dull.
For the price and not being happy with the scent I personally would not repurchase.
As for results it moisturized nicely and made my skin soft.
I am very very acne prone, I've been dealing with constant breakouts for over 10 years, my skin is oily in nature, but dehydrated from all the topical treatments. At the time when I picked up this jar, I felt sad and frustrated because I was on a trip and my skin was a flaky dry/oily/irritated mess. So I didn't care anymore, I just wanted to slather something on my face to fix it. And I'm so glad I did! I'm using this for 1 month now and so far so good. In the mornings my skin looks rested, fresh and hydrated, not oily like before! And I apply it on top of acne treatment which I use every other night. Now, I noticed some negative reviews here say it broke them out, but really it is so individual. I usually break out easily from everything, but with this one I was lucky! So just give it a try if you're in search of a soothing night cream. If it suites you, it will work wonders.
High potency night a min - oil free
Ive suffered from dry skin for a long time, after using this moisturizer my skin is really soft and is not dry like before. I always wake up feeling a glow to my skin. Downside of this is the amount to use! When I put too much, my skin breaks out. And too much is a very thin line. I think using a pea size of the cream for your whole face is the right amount. Maybe a little less. But it doesnt spread well and soaks it up fast so you can help but use more. Ive noticed when I put the moisturizer in their sample size containers, ive always used the right amount and never break out.
This product is terrible! I have been using it for 3 days and have broken out in little bumps! I'm usually pretty smart with my money and don't over spend on beauty products but I heard this brand was great and I was on the lookout for a night cream so I thought I'd give it a go. Well that's $59 I'll never see again! An absolute waste of my money! I have also purchased the Origins GinZing eye cream and it has the same effect!
Don't waste your money girls!
As other reviewers have commented, this has a strong citrus-floral fragrance which I find very calming as part of my night-time ritual. I wake up in the morning with noticeably soft, glowing skin and haven't experienced any irritation or breakouts. One of my favourite creams.
