One of my favorite skin care products is a good night cream. It seems like no matter what issue my skin is having, night cream helps. I often tend to use it day and night for this reason. Thanks to iFabbo and Own Skin Care, I had a chance to try Own Refining Moisture Night Cream and review it for Logical Harmony readers. Own is certified cruelty free by Leaping Bunny and is certified vegan by Vegan Action – two certifications that you can always trust.
I was really excited to try out the Refining Moisture Night Cream. Especially after how much I loved the Lifting Eye Cream and the Firming Silk Concentrate serum from the same brand! A good night cream that does everything it claims is hard to come by these days. So many simply don’t live up to their expectations. When you find a good one, it’s worth sticking with for a while.
Claims: “Hydrate and illuminate your skin nightly with a luxurious formula designed to fight all three causes of aging while you rest… Own Anti-Aging Refining Night Cream features clinically proven CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) technology, a plant-based ingredient designed to enhance collagen levels, improve moisture retention, and boost metabolism for softer, smoother, and genuinely younger-looking skin.”
Ingredients: Water (Eau), Pelargonium Gravolens Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Glycolic Acid, Coco-Caprylate, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Cetearyl Alcohol, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Oleosomes*, Cetyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil Dimethicone, Squalane, Sodium Hydroxide, Tocopherol, Conjugated Linoleic Acid*, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Hydrogenated Palm Gycerides, Sclerotium Gum, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Lecithin, Carnosine, Silybum Marianum Fruit Extract, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Germ Extract, Bisabolol, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Potassium Sorbate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol
*CLA Patented Plant Technology™, not from an animal source. While the product name includes the word silk, this is not an ingredient in the serum. None of the ingredients used are animal derived. This product is certified vegan.
Pros: The cream wasn’t too light or too heavy, and definitely isn’t greasy. It absorbed quickly.
Cons: The smell is a bit odd, but it’s not strong and easy to get used to.
The Verdict: Just like all the other products from Own that I have tried, I really loved this one! It worked wonders on my skin. I could see visible overnight improvement in the tone and smoothness. Plus, it left my skin feeling super moisturized. Especially when layered over the serum. I don’t have any wrinkles, so I can’t speak to if it would improve those. I am, however, a huge believer in preventative skin care and can see this night cream being great for that.
If you’re looking for a new night cream, I would definitely give this one a try. As well as the entire Own skin care line!
