Nightskin: Does Nightskin Work?

  • 3.50 / 5

Nightskin Overview

Nightskin is a facial serum specifically designed to be used at night to help ‘turn back the clock’. Developed by a reputable cosmetic surgeon Dr. Arthur W. Perry, the serum is likened to a ‘multivitamin’ for the skin.

The Nightskin website is a very clean and clinical looking site that has easy to read information, a good FAQ section and details regarding Dr. Perry who, as well as being a practising surgeon, also hosts a healthy living radio show and authored a book called ‘Straight Talk about Cosmetic Surgery’. No customer testimonials are shown on the site, although there are generally favorable independent consumer reviews to be found elsewhere on the internet.

Nightskin – Product Description

nightskin

The Nightskin serum works by using a formula consisting of small molecules that are easily absorbed by the skin to target the problem areas. The serum address many facial skin issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, age spots (or discoloring) and even dark circles. It is particularly beneficial for use at night due to the fact that some of the ingredients are light sensitive and therefore not so potent during the daytime.

The website for Nightskin lists only four ingredients for the serum although it is not known whether these are the only substances in it or simply those that are active. To diminish fine lines and decrease discoloration in the skin, Nightskin contains Retinyl Propionate, a form of vitamin A that, as mentioned, loses some of its potency in daylight. To act as a non-harsh but effective exfoliant, Glycolic acid is added plus L-Ascorbic acid, a type of vitamin C is used for its anti-oxidant skin damage reducing properties. Finally, for gentle skin lightening a herbal licorice extract is included in the formula.

The manufacturers of Nightskin claim that within one week of regular use, the consumer can expect a significant improvement in skin texture, reduction of adult acne and an increase in skin moisture. It is recommended that Nightskin is used every night after thoroughly cleansing and removing make-up.

  • The serum is expensive, costing $49.95 for 1floz

Nightskin – The Bottomline

While it may be preferable, and certainly more affordable, to use a cream to help signs of aging, it is doubtful as to whether a serum such as Nightskin could really have the same effects as Botox or cosmetic surgery. However, for those that use an anti-wrinkle cream anyway, Nightskin does seem like a good choice and judging from consumer feedback, would be worth spending that little bit extra money.

The cosmetic industry currently offers a variety of wrinkle creams from a number of brands. To make the process of selecting a wrinkle cream as simple as possible, we've evaluated each cream on its ability to fulfill our requirements for a quality wrinkle cream. To be specific, we believe that a wrinkle cream should include ingredients that offer antioxidant protection for skin, in order to delay the onset of noticeable aging. At the same time, wrinkle creams should be able to renew skin, typically by containing compounds with collagen-stimulating properties. Additionally, such a cream should improve both the texture and appearance of skin by offering both long term anti-wrinkle benefits and hydrating agents to create smooth, firm skin. Listed below are the top wrinkle creams, according to these important characteristics.

    I have a question for you !! I bought nite skin about 4 years ago , used it it was fantastic . got busy for some reason forgot about using it ~!! found my bottle . called to order more . the lady said “i have no idea who dr perry is ” “never heard of him ” !! Then i read my bottles first 2 ingredients which are “water and ascorbic acid The vit c . she said nope “not what i have here , she went on to say that the list has words so long she cant pronounce them . and my bottole had real licorice which brightens the skin naturally , she said there is none in the product that new vitality now sells as nite skin . i can take a picture of my bottle from 3 1/2 4 years ago that worked beautifully and naturally . what has happened here and everyone should know about it is they hooked people on an amazing ingredient . maybe dr perry sold it to new vitality and then they have replaced the natural with junk ingredients . we need the real vit C (stabilized , along with the glycolic acid , and the licorice . thats what made it great . now its all fake . let me know if you know of a product like the original nite skin , because its no longer !!! thanks for your great page and info !!!
