Night Cream

I have put off doing this review because I have had such a hard time deciding what to say.  Don't love it, don't hate it...but here we go!  I decided that since I didn't have a night cream I should really start the habit of getting a good night cream I like and start using it every night.  I headed out to Target and found Up&Up Night Cream.  It was about $15.  It says compare to Olay Regenerist Night Cream, which is around $20.  I love Olay, but I figured it was $5 cheaper and I could give it a try to see if I liked it or not.

 It says, "Uses natural moisturizers to help give you firmer, younger-looking skin."  I would agree that it does leave my skin much more moisturized, but I don't notice a difference on the firmness of my skin.  I am blessed with younger looking skin so maybe that is why I don't really notice as much...?  Now I do agree my skin is more moisturized BUT it also is oily feeling sometimes in the morning when I wake up too.  It doesn't feel greasy or oily when applying though.
 This night cream is pretty heavy, and I know some people really like this.  I am unsure how I like it.  I feel like it might not absorb as much as a light cream but I am new to using night cream.  I have been using this product for over a month but I LOVE my daily day face lotion so I think it's hard to not compare the two even though they are totally different products.
 Some of the ingredients on the back listed are Vitamin E, Lavender, Green Tea, and tons of big words that I don't know what they mean, haha.  The ingredients I told you are somewhere in the middle of the huge list.  This product also has a little bit of a scent that I think some people may find unpleasant.  I'm not sensitive to scents so it's ok for me, but maybe not for others.
So like I said I don't love it, but I don't hate it.  It's really in the middle for me.  If you like a thick cream, aren't sensitive to smells then you may like this one.  It does moisturize...
If anyone else has tried this, what did you think?  Perhaps you have a more decisive opinion than me!

  1. I would probably break out so bad with that lol!

  2. I am one of those people who like heavy night creams. But I understand your concern about the absorbance issue. Have you tried Burts Bees night cream? It absorbs well but layer on thick too.

    1. I haven't and I love Burts Bees. I haven't seen their night cream before, I'll have to look for that. Thanks!!

  3. it looks promising! i really like heavy evening moisturizers, which is why i load my face with oils! usually up & up alternatives work really well. gotta love target! i could live there. and it's from minnesota! gotta love anything from my home state, ha ha


  4. I guess it really depends on your skin's needs at the moment and things like the seasons. For winter I generally like to use a heavier night cream because my skin is drier and needs more moisture. For summer, I like to use something lighter and less greasy :)

  5. I have been meaning to try more from them. I got a kabuki brush by up&up and I love it.
