Simple Regeneration Age Resisting Night Cream is a special blend of active ingredients to revitalise and restore your skin throughout the night. It's priced at £6.49 for a 50ml bottle.
The packaging is ok though nothing special, the simple design reflects the brand's philosophy. It has a press top dispenser on top which I love as it makes it really quick and easy to use. One full press of the dispenser gives me more of the cream than I need, but you can depress it just part way to control how much you get out.
The consistency of the cream is quite thin for a night cream, though still thicker and heavier than I would use during the day. It feels quite light while I'm applying it and it spreads easily so I don't need to use too much. Shortly after applying it I find it begins to feel quite heavy on my skin, but it also starts to sting a little on certain areas of my face, like the tops of my cheeks and around my jawline.
My skin does feel soft and smooth after using this, but it also feels a little sticky and after a while it feels very dirty and like it's clogging my pores pretty badly. And to make matters even worse, it really does irritate my skin. I do have fairly sensitive skin in general, but I've never had a moisturiser make my skin feel the way this does, it really stings and makes it very uncomfortable.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to use this for long enough to be able to see any long term benefit from it, so I can't really comment on it's anti-ageing properties, but it does feel like it effectively moisturises my skin and keeps it hydrated, despite all the irritation it causes.
No, I wouldn't recommend this as not only did it cause me a lot of irritation, but it also left my skin feeling quite dirty and greasy. Maybe that's why it's so cheap!
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!).
