I was running out of my usual anti-wrinkle cream, so I was desperate for a great quality yet decently priced product. Luckily, the Universe heard my calling and granted me this product on sale. Desert Essence is great line of all vegan and natural ingredients for those who live “clean”. They have a great range of lotions that I have tried before. This is my first time trying out their face products, and since it was on sale for $12, there is very little to complain about.
I purchased the Dessert Essense Gentle Nourishing Night Cream from their Dry & Sensitive line. Since I have normal to dry skin, I did not want an overwhelming amount of moisture that would leave my face too shiny. Also, I did not want ingredients on my skin that would do more harm than good.
I like that this cream is unscented, and I have always wanted to try argan oil on my face, so I thought this was a good choice. Upon trying this on, after putting on some toner, I found that the lotion did not sit well on top of my toner. In fact, there were white streaks due to the residue of this lotion. So a good tip is to let the toner on the face dry a bit before you put the lotion on. However, I do admit that this cream is amazing on my skin. It feels soft and supple. Unfortunately, it does not leave a glow on one’s skin, which I expected from what people say about Argan oil. I am not disappointed though, I think at night, I am focused on rejuvenating my skin, and this cream does the trick.
