I am looking for a good night cream that will make skin smoother and brighter without being greasy. Usually I use Nivea but I am not entirely satisfied as it leaves skin very greasy. (I got combination type of skin)

Can anyone recommend any good brand?

Cheers,
Pumi

Hi there,

A tricky dilemma- night cremes are by nature a little on the greasy/oily side, as this is how they supply enough nutrients to nourish your skin while you sleep (when it is most beneficial). You might try a day creme which is on the thick side without being heavy. I often use a Nutrimetics one called Nutri-moist. It's a worldwide best-seller and has been around for about 40 years. It comes in 3 different strengths to suit different skin types- light, normal or intense. I find the intense is a brilliant night creme. It's rich and very moisturising, but is not at al sticky or greasy. And my skin feels so smooth in the morning, like other night cremes I have tried. You can get it from any Nutrimetics consultant, you'll be able to get one easily in the uk.
Good luck!

It is good to use a night cream as they work on the skin while we are sleeping - I normally Elemis pro marine collagen cream, which is also my day cream, but sometimes use Issima Midnight Secret by Guerlain or Clarins facial oil is effective if you have very dry skin.

Cheers, Chalfont. I was quite interested in Clarins face oils but they all seem to be for dry skins only. I've got oily skin you see

The oily skin dilemma is a tough one. My skin is definitely aging but it is STILL oily like it was when I was 15!!! About a year ago, I ordered phytomer marine-based night cream after getting a free sample from Dermstore and liking it. But after nightly use for about two weeks and $100 my skin was like an oil drill.

My skin is behaving really well lately so I might try it again. Maybe every other night or every two nights would suit me better. And just little dots. I seem to over-do sometimes.

Pumi it seems you and I have similar skin challenges lol

Hi Pumi

Yes, I can understand your dilemma using Clarins Oil as you have oily skin. However, Elemis is a good range for all types of skin even oily although it is a bit expensive, and there other companies who make facial oils which can be used on oily skins ie Declor and ESPA I think.

Hi Pumi -- there are so many products out there -- if you can get samples of products you can find out if they suit your skin, i.e, too greasy, etc. but you'll not be able to judge them over a long period. I find that with any cosmetic it takes 6-8 weeks to make an assessment. One thing with night creams -- I find they're too heavy for my skin so I've been putting a night cream on (I use the Cellex-C line) about 1/2 or more before I go to bed. If my skin feels oily after that time I lightly pat the excess off -- 'cause that excess will just end up on your pillowcase. try to narrow what you want by assessing if the product is for normal, dry or oil skin. Then look for added benefits -- do you want the cream to target lines, spots, etc. Cosmetics react differently on each person, sometimes it just takes time to find what helps your skin.

Hi, Chalfont.

sorry for late reply. I was away on holidays for 2weeks. I will have a look at Declor facial oil. Heard it's a good brand. Thanks for your help

Hi, Lovebeauty

Where do you buy your moisturiser? Is it available in the UK?

Thanks,
Pumi.

Cheers, Mari. I have been reading on cellex c products but unfortunately, they are very very expensive in the UK. Do you know of any place where I can get them cheaper?

You're right Dragonlilly. Oily skin is such a dilemma. I purchased cucumber cream while I was away on holidays. I am currently using it as a night cream and I find it makes my skin smooth and soft although it is a bit oily. The best tip is to apply a tiny bit.

For hot humid weather which makes my skin an oil slick, I switch to Live-Live Bee Yummy Skin Food as my moisturizer. It's a great humectant without adding oil.

You can call the toll free and order samples. They are located in NYC.

I apply it over my MyChelle Ultra Hyaluronic Hydrating Serum. MyChelle is available at iHerb.com (best prices).

Hi Pumi,

The fact that Nivea leaves your skin initially greasy means that it is benefitting it and helping it from drying out. If you use a cream that dramatically degreases the skin, your complexion can become even oilier. Nivea is excellent. It moisturises and helps also to stabilise the oil in your skin. It has a greasy efffect only for a short while and that it is worth putting up with.

Warmest regards,

Redrose

katya2254 - you need to realize that when you spam us about products that you sell it only makes the company look bad. I use this forum to learn from others who have unbiased reviews. This type of post is not only annoying but disrespectful to members of this forum.

There has been so much spam about arbonne that I would NEVER consider a purchase.
