I have to say I'm very surprised with this little gem from TBS. My skin went through a horrible phase of looking and feeling terrible - red, sensitive, dry and tight yet like an oil slick. No product on my face felt nice at all. I had been using the wrong products from Dermalogica for my skin, but didn't want to spend the money on more Dermalogica products so I researched for affordable options and Paula's Choice helped me decide on the aloe range from TBS - in particular the milk cleanser. I bought the small trial pack of the aloe range - milk cleanser, toner plus day and night creams. While the cleanser is indeed very gentle it didn't feel as if it cleaned my skin, the toner felt ineffective and the day cream felt horrible on my skin but the night cream is awesome!

I'm using moisturising Hado Labo foaming face wash (great product) and mineral spray as toner and apply the night cream (during the day as well) as my moisturiser. I apply it a little thicker under the eyes and I'm super happy with my convenient and affordable little routine.

I think the TBS aloe night cream was the product that helped get my skin back to normal.

I live in a very hot humid climate and I'm either in sub freezing aircon rooms, or outside in the 100% humidity and this cream copes with either. It feels nice in either aircon or outside providing I haven't applied it too thick.

It's funny, this is my first night cream ever and if it weren't for buying the sample pack from TBS I'd probably never have tried a night cream. I'm sure this product is great and I'll definitely repurchase but I'm curious now about what other night creams are out there and how great they might make my skin look!

As always, I do not understand why business are still using jar packaging. It's unhealthy, unhygienic, doesn't keep ingredients stable and.. they're just a mess! WIth that said, I would purchase this cream again if it was in a pump format, it's a good cream. I like the light scent and I like the texture of it, not too greasy but still a rich night cream. It's also true to the claim of being soothing... my skin feels good after using it.

I love this product from The Body Shop. A little pricey but I tend to pick it up when I get 5 or 10 off with the loyalty card. It's the perfect amount of moisture for my skin, absorbs easily and is very gentle. I wake up with smooth, glowing skin. It also doesn't make my skin shiny which doesn't matter too much with a night cream anyway but means your face doesn't stick to the pillow and also, I quite like my skin to look nice even when just lounging around at home in the evenings. For anyone moaning about the pot format - there are plenty of other night creams out there that come in a tube so quit whinging - if you don't like a tub format - don't buy a tub format! Simple! As for me, I love a tub format for night cream, it gives me one less thing to knock over on my dressing table. And also, it makes it easier to get the last dreggs out. As for hygiene, I just wash my hands before I use it, which I'm sure most people do before putting cream on their face anyway. Great product from TBS, one of my favourites of their's.

I really like this. It does what it claims. I used this when I had an allergic reaction to a cleanser. It was so calming and moisturizing, and my skin felt so much better. I use this in the evening and as a day cream. I have oily skin and I thought this would be too moisturizing for daytime but its perfect! My skin feels plump and fresh. It sinks into the skin fast. I love that it is fragrance free. I will probably repurchase this some time in the future.

This night cream is really amazing it's Fragrance, color and alcohol-free and the only night moisturizer along with jojoba oil that never makes my eyes puffy when I wake up in the morning , it's really great for the area around the eye and the whole face of course , will buy again as long as it performs the same way it does now also, its really soothing so it's the best after "face treatments" moisturizer to use , I mean after I exfoliate my face or after using any face treatment that a little bit harsh. please Body Shop DO NOT change a thing about this night cream

I bought this cream after doing a lot of searching online for a good cream that isn't full of chemicals and wouldn't irritate my already red and very dry skin. Canadian winters aren't the most gentle on your skin, and my efforts of only using coconut oil left me with alligator skin. I wanted to get something that wasn't from a drugstore (you can't read half the ingredients on any of the products, especially Aveeno!), and something that would alleviate the redness but was reasonably priced. I settled on this Night Cream and used it that night. The tub isn't the most sanitary of containers, but you're usually putting on your creams after you wash your face so germs aren't my biggest concern. The smell is pretty neutral and the cream while thick, is quickly absorbed. The next day, I woke up and all my redness was GONE and my alligator skin was replaced with smooth, dewy skin.

I thought this was just a one-off, so after 3 weeks of using the product, I have to say I've found my HG moisturizer. I can't be all natural and use coconut oil, but this has given me my skin back. It's now permanently smooth, radiant and clear with no breakouts (besides my usual hormonal ones), and my blackheads have taken a vacation! I would definitely buy this again.

I also bought the Day Cream with equally great results :)

This cream does the job. I bought this night cream when it was on sale, half off - therefore at $10. I figured I needed a night cream that was a little more moisturizing than my Neutrogena moisturizer that I use for the day. It's been 2 weeks that I've been using this nightly and I have to say that I really like it - It's not overly moisturizing, therefore my skin doesn't feel greasy at all. If my face was very dry, it wouldn't be sufficient but since I moisturize regularly this cream seems to keep things in balance, just the way my skin already is. My skin is sensitive and I really dislike harsh perfumes in facial creams, therefore I really appreciate that this cream smells neutral. My skin feels refreshed when I apply it. I have to say that if this product was offered in a pump bottle, it would be a lot more hygienic - I'm always afraid to get breakouts from dipping my fingers in facial product pots. I also wish the cream was slightly more moisturizing. Overall, I will probably keep buying this unless I find a good equivalent or something better, for a decent price as well.

This is a decent moisturizer. It is not too hydrating so it's perfect for my combination skin. This in conjunction with the Tea Tree Oil Blemish Fade Night Lotion has nursed my skin back to life. I rarely breakout and my skin is smoother. I'm sure I will purchase this again but right now I'm looking for something new.
