Product Description(provided at jason-natural.com)- “JASON Red Elements Hydrating Night Crème delivers intense moisture and nourishment to renew and revitalize skin overnight. Red Tea Extract protects skin against free radical damage while Polypeptides maximize collagen production and strengthens collagen fibers which keep skin looking youthful. Copper, Zinc, and Manganese are minerals that fight for healthier, smoother, more radiant skin. This Hypo-allergenic, fragrance and Paraben free crème hydrates and firms skin, combating the signs of aging overnight, leaving only soft, dewy fresh skin by morning.”
Price– around $20 for a 1.5 oz. container.
Performance– I’ll be honest. I was a little worried about using this product at first, since it has way more ingredients than the Karen’s Botanicals moisturizers I’ve been using. Surprisingly, though, my skin didn’t revolt at all. I woke up each morning after using it with the loveliest glowing skin. The silky consistency of the night crème was also pretty dreamy; it made my skin feel incredibly smooth. I audibly sighed when I realized my sample had run out. What a bummer!
Scent– This product is fragrance free, so it doesn’t have much of a scent at all.
Rating– 8/10. I subtracted 2 points for the questionable ingredients.
Would I purchase this item again? While I did love the performance of this product, I think I’ll stick to more natural moisturizers in the future.
