Renew Overnight Dry Nighttime Skin-Refining Moisturizer, for Normal to Dry Skin provides more fruit acids masquerading as AHAs, while jar packaging ruins the effectiveness of the antioxidants in this moisturizer for normal to dry skin. For the money, you’re better off investing in a separate AHA product and a stably packaged moisturizer with state-of-the-art ingredients.

Claims

This rejuvenating night cream is designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while boosting radiance and deeply hydrating. A 10% hydroxy acid complex sloughs away dead, dull skin cells, revealing a brighter skin tone and more refined skin texture. Aloe, chamomile, evening primrose and comfrey extracts soothe dry skin while deeply moisturizing, restoring a plump, supple texture and youthful tone.

Brand Overview

SkinCeuticals At-A-Glance

With a strong presence in the professional (meaning spa and aesthetics) skincare market, SkinCeuticals has a mostly well-deserved reputation for producing serious-minded, research-driven products, several of which are centered on L-ascorbic acid (a form of vitamin C).

There are many good reasons to shop this line; it boasts a lineup up impressive vitamin C products, as well as some good retinol options and sunscreens. Even better is that the majority of its anti-aging products are packaged in containers that will protect their contents from light and air. Focusing on what Skinceuticals does best (which is serums, sunscreens, and specialty products) will be money well spent for visible results. The main drawbacks of this line are some products that contain fragrance ingredients, as well as potentially-drying alcohol, though they represent the minority of the brand’s offerings.
