I know I’m only 22, but I feel like it’s never too early to start thinking about anti ageing! I mean there is nothing wrong with resisting the effects of age before most of them have started to take effect so I usually like to use an anti ageing night cream. I was wandering around Boots and saw this Simple Age Resisting Night Cream on sale for about 3 pounds so I thought I would pick it up!
It dispenses a lot thinner than I expected, usually with night creams I find them quite heavy but this was a lot lighter on the skin. It contains all natural ingredients including green tea extract to ‘revitalise and restore’ my skin. It isn’t highly scented and trust me when I say a little goes a long way! I put a pea sized amount on my hand and it was more than enough to cover my face and neck.
I really enjoy the texture of this night cream, it sinks into the skin easily and I have been waking up with softer and hydrated skin, sometimes my skin can dry out in the summer so I was really happy with this.
So it’s a good moisturiser but will it actually do anything to work against ageing? I really don’t think so, looking at the ingredients, I don’t see anything which will actually make a huge difference to the skin. They are lovely, natural and nourishing ingredients but I don’t think any are capable of really penetrating the outer layers of the skin and changing anything. Or at least there are no published studies on whether these ingredients actually work!
I’m am very cynical when it comes to anti ageing creams and I have a few blog posts coming up about ageing in general so look out for those! But overall, I have enjoyed using this cream for hydration and for the price, I will keep it in my stash.
Do you have any night creams you can recommend?
