Eminence Monoi Age Corrective Night Cream- Best Night Creams
Contained in a clear plastic jar with a convenient white plastic applicator (to prevent contamination from your fingers), the Eminence Monoi Age Corrective Night Cream has a lovely pastel yellow shade to it and is a semi-thick cream with the consistency of custard. Its scent is a delicious blend of citrus, melon and orchid.
Eminence touts this night cream as being dedicated towards those with dry skin but particularly powerful for mature skin. Given that I have neither of those, I had my mother who is in her 60s and trends towards dry skin, test this night cream.
Her immediate reaction upon the first night of application, “I loved the scent; it’s delicate, not overpowering at all the way many other night creams can be. The cream was absorbed immediately and gave my skin a very smooth texture which lasted until morning.”
As to the specific ingredients that make Eminence Monoi Age Corrective Night Cream as potent as it is, let’s begin with Monoi itself, which is a Tahitian oil whose purpose is to hydrate and firm the skin. Along with Monoi, this night cream contains Argan Stem Cell Complex which breaks down to PhytoCellTec™ Argan stem cells and Nutmeg seed, contributing to a smoother overall complexion.
Add in antioxidant Argan oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and Grape Seed Oil, we have a powerful blend of super moisturizers and emollients that would easily conquer any dry skin. After one week of nightly use, my mother noticed “fine lines around the mouth area had become nearly invisible” and small areas that previously had dry, flaky patches were completely gone.
After one month of nightly use, she says her skin has returned to being “as smooth and silky as it was when I was 50.” To give context to this, when she was 50 years old, most people thought my mother was in her late 30s. Granted, she has great genes and has always taken good care of her skin. Still, great genes and great skincare habits can’t completely ward off the effects of time. Even my mother, who has always had luminous, smooth skin, started getting those dreaded wrinkles here and there; once fine lines developed into noticeable indentations and slower regenerating cells caused unusually dry patches.
While no skincare product can turn my mother’s 60 something year old face into that of a 20 year old (and why would we want that, really), the addition of Eminence’s Monoi Age Corrective Night Cream has significantly, noticeably helped refine her skin into its previously silky smooth, fully hydrated self, with major lines receding back into fine lines so that now, in her mid 60s, most people think she’s in her late 40s. I’d say that’s pretty powerful.
At US $60 for this 2 fl oz/ 60 ml jar, it lasts for approximately 2 months with nightly use and is an amazing value for the results it delivers.
