I recently wrote a (admittedly very similar) review on Simple's regeneration age resisting day cream. To be honest this product is so similar that I could almost write them both up in one review, but unfortunately Dooyoo doesn't work that way. So excuse any near-duplication of material, I have written this from scratch so any similarity is unintentional!
Simple is a brand in which I'm always moderately interested, being as I have quite sensitive skin and like the idea of natural ingredients in a moisturiser.
Simple's night cream comes in a cylindrical pump-top container with a transparent plastic lid which is removed entirely for the moisturiser to be used. I often get the day and the night creams confused; the packaging is identical but for the contents and I often find myself having to squint at the writing at night and early in the morning to figure out which to put on my face!
The packaging may be almost identical, but the moisturisers themselves are pretty different. The night cream is a more greyish colour, and smells a little less fresh. This is still no unpleasant smell and I actually find it quite a nice scent. Even if you don't like it, it doesn't stick around past half an hour or so after application.
The moisturiser is very thick and creamy, but despite this pretty easy to rub in. It does leave skin a little shiny after application, but obviously as a night cream this is not of massive importance to me.
Immediately after application, my skin feels less tight and very well moisturised, but also a little greasy. I don't mind this when my skin is dry, but otherwise it does tend to provoke spots.
In the morning, skin feels pretty good, well-moisturised and no longer greasy.
As far as age-resisting effects go, being only 20 I'm not sure I need these! I can't really comment as I'm not sure my skin would be looking older without my use of this night cream.
Ingredients include green tea, various nutrients and vitamins, and no perfumes or colour. I have sensitive skin and have had no problems, even around the eye area where most of my other moisturisers don't get to go anywhere near!
Overall I really like this stuff. It is a little greasy but sometimes that is what my skin needs, and I like that I can use it all over my face without fear it'll irritate. I'd recommend it, but if you have acne-prone skin perhaps one of which to steer clear.
Simple regeneration age resisting night cream is available in chemists and supermarkets nationwide, for around £5ish: a bit pricey, but as I only use mine infrequently, it has lasted ages and definitely something I'll buy again (if they don't change the ingredients first!).
