Own Refining Moisture Night Cream Review

Sent for review from ifabbo. 

Women are obsessed with looking young. I'm 21 and I know I am too. Now I don't think I look old, and I only have one forehead wrinkle so far (I can raise 1 eyebrow and I do it quite often). I'm not concerned at the moment that I look older than I am. I am concerned though for the future of my skin.

I used to go tanning, bad I know. I'm outside almost all summer. I get burn easily and often. So I try to do the best I can with my skin now. It has me looking for the best face products. I've been using this for about 4 or 5 weeks now.  Once a day at night.

This night cream is the most different cream I've ever used. I can't say I ever used a product on my face that smells like windex. I'm not kidding when I say it smells like windex either. This night cream has a lot of big claims such as:

In as early as 8 weeks, Own Anti-aging products have been clinically proven to: 

  • Boost collagen for FIRMER and fuller-looking skin.
  • Enhance cell turnover for a more EVEN SKIN TONE
  • Improve skin's moisture barrier for SOFTER and smoother skin.
That's a lot of promise for 8 weeks of use. I know I'm writing a review after only testing it for 5 weeks but I'm sure I know how I feel about it. Did I notice any of those claims? No. Has it been 8 weeks? No.  The reason I'm stopping use is for the smell, its lingers on the skin. I just can't keep putting this on my skin. Blah! 

PROS: 
  • Kept my skin Moisturized. 
  • Cruelty-free 
  • Did not break out my sensitive skin
CONS: 
  • Smells like windex
  • After 5 weeks did not live up to promises
VERDICT: Yes I realize I didn't test this for 8 weeks, so please keep that in mind. I can not vouch for any of the results. I just couldn't get past putting something that smells like Windex on my face. I saw that a lot of people liked this product but not for me. Pass. Sells for $25 at Ulta, and on their site. 



Item I picked out from ifabbo to test and review. I did not buy this. **
