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
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.

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.
