I can’t believe the first quarter of 2015 is already gone. Wow!
Today, I’m taking a quick break from my “feminine hygiene product” series and will review a new skin care product that I’ve been enjoying for the past few months. 🙂
This night treatment works to replenishes dull, dry complexion, giving it a smoother, renewed, and revitalized appearance by morning. Formulated with Advanced Gel Matrix Technology, it locks in moisture to revive skin while you sleep, achieving a nourished, softer, and more luminous appearance, while boosting hydration by 146 percent.
This treatment’s Alaria extract, known to reduce the production of accelerated aging proteins, also helps to maintain the skin’s barrier and natural water reserves, causing the appearance of lines and wrinkles to soften, leaving behind a youthful-looking radiance. The exclusive Light Reflecting Complex blend works to boost skin’s clarity while infusing it with moisture and minerals. Wake up with softer, smoother skin with this night treatment that leaves you with a seamless palette for makeup application.
HOW TO USE: Apply a small amount all over your face and neck before bed, massaging into skin until absorbed… Or I apply a little extra as an intensive treatment. Almost like a night mask. A little goes a long way, so use sparingly.
- Almond, Plum, and Rice Bran Oils: Full of essential fatty acids and nourishing omegas that work together to reinforce the skin’s natural lipid barrier, infusing it with anti-oxidants.
- Advanced Gel Matrix Technology: Creates a veil that locks in moisture.
- Alaria Extract: Reduces the production of accelerated aging proteins, and helps to maintain the skin’s barrier and natural water reserves.
- NARS’ Exclusive Light Reflecting Complex: A blend of ingredients that work to the boost skin’s clarity, infusing it with moisture and minerals.
PACKAGING: Gorgeous. Simple. Clean. I love.
MOISTURE: This treatment is VERY moisturizing. Although it’s a lightweight oil, it’s too heavy to wear during the day or under makeup in my opinion. It absorbs over time which makes it perfect as a night treatment. Also I wouldn’t use it every night. Just use on those nights when your skin needs some extra TLC. 🙂 The formula will have fully absorbed by morning and you’re left with renewed skin. Yay!
SCENT: Smells like a light almond oil. I don’t like almonds, but I don’t mind the smell.
CONSISTENCY: In the jar, it starts off as a solid gel but once you touch the product with your finger… it melt into a very emollient oil. A little goes a long way, so use sparingly.
I would recommend this product to people with dry or normal to dry skin. I don’t think you’ll enjoy it if you have oily skin. If you have oily skin but get dry patches during cold weather, I would recommend it as a spot treatment.
I have dry skin and its been great during the winter months as well as spring. I don’t use it every night. Just whenever I feel like my skin needs an extra boost of moisture. I prefer this treatment to many of the sleeping masks I’ve been trying out. This treatment leaves no filmy residue behind. The product is completely absorbed by morning and my skin is moisturized, supple, and restored. Two thumbs up Nars! You can find this product at Nordstrom, Sephora, Bloomingdale’s and Neiman Marcus for $85.
I hope this review has been helpful for you!
