Cerave Skin Renewing Night Cream ($16.99) is one of two new skincare products that Cerave has launched for Spring 2015.
Cerave already has their Facial Moisturizing Lotion which is recommended for nightly use. I actually used that as a daily moisturizer as it isn’t rich enough to act as a night cream for me. So imagine my delight when they introduced a thicker night cream in the form of the new Skin Renewing Night Cream.
Let’s take a look!
Cerave Skin Renewing Night Cream is actually marketed as an anti-aging formula and also one of the first products Cerave has launched in the anti-aging category of products. This is marketed for addressing lines, wrinkles, and even loss of elasticity. It contains Vitamin B as well as niacinamide which seem to me to be two of the better anti-aging ingredients in this formula.
Unfortunately it does come housed in a plastic jar which means the good for you ingredients it does contain will likely not keep well over time. However, right now, this second, I’m loving it none the less.
This is quite a thicker formula that reminds me of a body moisturizer. It’s fragrance-free and absorbs easily into skin without leaving me feeling greasy or shiny. I was worried it would be too rich but it’s just right on my drier skin. I started testing it by forgoing my entire skin regime to see how it worked and effected my skin. So no serum, no toner, no lotion, etc…I tend to have a crazy amount of products I use on my face in the evenings so I just quite them temporarily while I tested this out.
Honestly, I get great results with the first use. I applied in the evening and woke up with softer, smother skin plus my skin looked brighter. I tend to have flakier areas on my face in the Winter and this smoothed away flakes and made my skin much more softer. It seems to have a knack for aiding my skin in retaining moisture as well since my skin looked smoother and softer throughout the day. My makeup applied more easily in the AM and my skin appeared more brighter. Funny enough, I felt like it made my skin look “just washed”! My skin tends to look duller without makeup but I felt really comfortable with a little cheek stain and concealer under my eyes after waking up the evening after using this! I just dislike how lackluster and dull my skin looks without a little smidge of tinted moisturizer or BB Cream but with this I felt very comfortable without it.
Cerave Skin Renewing Night Cream did a great job with this formula. My skin seems to me loving it! I just wish they put it in a tube as the benefits of the Vitamin E and other antioxidants will likely not last well in this jar packaging! Sad sigh! None the less I’d totally repurchase this as I like what it does for my skin!
If you have drier, duller skin I’d highly recommend trying it out!
