Product Review: Own Refining Moisture Night Cream

Disclaimer:  Product sent for the purposed of review.  All opinions expressed are my own.  

I was recently sent the Anti-Aging Refining Moisture Night Cream by Own Skin Care.  I didn't currently have a night cream in my skin care regimen so I was very excited to try this. 

Own is a San Francisco based skin-health company that believes in the holistic approach towards healthy skin. They believe that there are too many chemicals in our everyday lives and develop products that improve skin's overall health without the need for harsh chemicals. With less than 10 products in their product line, Own focuses on pure and effective anti-aging.

Own Refining Moisture Night Cream is said to hydrate and illuminate your skin nightly with a formula designed to fight all three causes of aging while you rest. It is free of retinol, parabens and sulfates. 

Own's Refining Moisture Night Cream contain Glycolic Acid, which I have been a little obsessed with lately.  Glycolic Acid is the most active and beneficial of the Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids (AHA).  It is used to improve the appearance of wrinkles and is found to be beneficial for the management of acne. So this was a win win for me.  

There is a lot that I like about this product.  It is not to thick and absorbs well into the skin.  In the morning my skin fells very smooth and soft.  I had used this every night for 2 weeks, then didn't use it at all for 2 days, and my skin was still softer than it ever has been.  I have also noticed a decrease in the fine lines that I had around my nose and cheeks and a significant improvement in my overall skin since using this product. 

The only negative thing I can say about this product at this point is about the packaging.  The texture of the jar is rubbery and similar to that of NARS.  If you have ever used a NARS product you know that material attracts and locks in any and all dust and partials that come in contact with it.

Own's Refining Moisture Night Cream retails for $24 and is available at Ulta locations nationwide or on Ulta's website.
