I have been using this as my night cream for about four years now and I absolutely love it. It is super thick and creamy so a little goes a long way and it takes a little while to absorb into the skin. It also has a nice light scent.

Formulated with the a complex blend of precious seed oils, essential fatty acids, natural collagen, super antioxidants and Hyaluronic Acid* to firm, lift & tighten loose skin, reduce fine lines & wrinkles, boost elasticity, lighten age spots, reduce sallowness and dramatically restore hydration. Enriched with Sea Buckthorn*, Rosehip Seed*, Argan*, Moringa Seed* and Olive Squalane* oils to improve the appearance of aged, stressed or damaged skin. 100% Vegan, paraben-free & fragrance-free.
*Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is normally produced by the body; it is what gives skin its volume and fullness. Hyaluronic acid also decreases as we age. Skin starts losing hyaluronic acid as early as age 18, but wrinkles and other skin damage from hyaluronic acid loss don’t generally show up until the late 30′s or early 40′s. Hyaluronic acid has many important functions, including holding in moisture, providing cushioning, aiding in tissue repair, holding together the skin structural components (collagen and elastin), and helping create a protective barrier against microorganisms. It is also one of the most powerful humectants known–it provides smoothness & softness to the skin, excellent anti-wrinkle effects, soothes irritated skin and is an ideal ingredient after facial peelings.
*Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil, sometimes called “Liquid gold” or “Life Oil”, is rich in Vitamins A, B, C, E, K, and P, is high in essential fatty acids and also nutrients such as carotenoids flavonoids, lycopene, and phytosterols. In fact, Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil is one of the most potent sources of Vitamin C, by some estimates offering more than 15 times the Vitamin C content of oranges.
*Rosehip seed oil towers over all other oils as the queen of skin care oils. The seeds are replete with Vitamin A, marked by the dark orange/red hue. Rosehip oil greatly diminishes stretch marks and helps to remove wrinkles from previously damaged skin. It combats inflammation and reduces the visibility of scars and blemishes. With regular use it will increase collagen levels, allowing for greater elasticity.
*Moringa Seed oil has been held in high regard since antiquity. Pharaohs of Egypt included vials of Moringa oil in their tombs. Moringa seed oil is chock full of antioxidants, lending it to amazing stability and resisting oxidation. It is springing on the skin care scene for good reason. It is cold pressed from the seeds of the healthiest plant on Earth. The seeds of the Moringa plant are used to purify water (that is how healthy this plant is). The oil is light and easily glides on your face without leaving a heavy coat, vivifying your skin and imparting a silky complexion. The skin absorbs nearly 60% of what is applied, a leading indicator of health. Moringa oil infuses a myriad of nutrients including zinc and copper which are essential for glowing skin. It also acts as a humectant, retaining moisture in the skin.
*Argan oil is extracted from the nut of fruits from the argan tree, exclusively found in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains in the southwestern region of Morocco, Africa. It contains high levels of essential fatty acids and vitamin E, an antioxidant that protects skin against free radicals, molecules that damage cells in the body which leads to disease. The antioxidants in argan oil can also be helpful for people with skin conditions such as eczema. It absorbs easily and is non-greasy and non-irritating, which makes it a great natural moisturiser, even for those with oily skin.
*Olive Squalane is the hydrogenated and more stable version of the compound squalene that is obtained from olive oil. The hydrogenation process makes squalane more shelf-stable than squalene and, therefore, easier to use in skin-care products. Adult skin is lubricated and protected against external aggressors by the sebum our skin produces. In healthy skin, sebum contains 10-13% squalene. This level drops as we get older. Low levels of squalene lead to dryness and flaking of the skin, and increase the risk of bacterial and fungal infections--eczema and psoriasis are also linked to low levels of squalene. Hydrated skin is healthy skin. So, when applied topically, squalane has tremendous benefits such as softer, smoother, plumper looking skin. On its own, squalene (or squalane) doesn’t feel greasy and acts like an emollient when applied to the skin. Also, one research suggests that squalane is very unlikely to be an irritant, so it’s an attractive option for those with sensitive skin.
I moved from San Diego to the chilly Northwest and really needed something more moisturizing for the cold days outside here, and this is it! It instantly makes my face feel and look so smooth. I have slightly oily skin, so I definitely have to blot my face more throughout the day, but it's so worth it for the beautiful glow and softness it gives my skin in the winter.
I love this cream it makes my face feel like I live in a humid climate rather than a dry cold place.
I was really excited by this and it has a great texture/smell/consistency, but it unfortunately made my face really red after using it. I'm not terribly sensitive but something in here doesn't jive with my skin type. It's working wonders for the stretch marks on my thighs, so I guess that's a good consolation prize.
This facial cream is one of my favorite products from this company. I live in the Sierra Nevada mountains and work in the outdoor industry, and my face is constantly getting blasted by wind, dirt, and strong sun rays at high altitudes. This cream keeps my skin tone even and my face very soft. It is not overly oil and my face stays hydrated. A little of this cream goes a long way. I definitely recommend for all skin types. This product has helped my improved my skin.
First time that I'm trying this product but it is highly concentrated, only need a little bit each time, and definitely soothing.
I was not used to the thick pasty cream, which required a lot of massaging to evenly cover my face. But I decided to stick with it and I'm glad I did. I saw improvements in my dry flaky skin within two weeks.
I've only been using this face cream for a week and a half and already I've noticed a difference. My skin was dry, blotchy and discolored in some areas and I had some painful bumps along my jawline. My skin feels so smooth now and the irritation and bumps are gone. My skin feels well moisturized and my skin tone has evened out in such a short amount of time. I'm loving this cream!
The skin on my face was a complete disaster - extremely dry and scaly especially on one side. This product has really moisturized and evened out my visage. I use it twice a day after the fabulous HS toner.
It left my skin feeling very hydrated
