Ok, "nighttime" serums are officially necessary in your skincare routine. I build a case for them here and here. This is now the third serum I've tried that's specifically created for nighttime use and I have to say that I'm hooked- with this new step in my routine and this particular serum.
What I love about Moonlight Catalyst is the same thing I love about the MRC from LBF, the texture. In the world of green beauty you can find yourself swimming in oils. Oil after oil after oil, on your body, on your face, in your hair, in your soup. It can get a little over the top in my opinion.
Having a water or aloe based product with a gel like texture can be a nice break and addition to your daily or should I say, nightly, routine.
I believe this product is so gentle that it would be suitable for all skin types...though the brand says it's particularly good for mature, tired and or blemish prone skin. Here's what they say...
I love that it's a natural alternative to retinoids. Pregnant women listen up...that means this is safe for you.
I've been using this nightly for well over a month and this is what I've learned:
1) a little goes a long way. I still have a lot left!
2) my skin is softer and more even toned.
3) it has a nice light, almost fruity smell...which my husband loves. He usually thinks that I smell like tree bark and grass (due to my other products).
At $70 a pop it's definitely a luxury. But, worth every penny.
