Product Critique: Human Nature Moisturizing Night Cream

A product that has been receiving a lot of love from me lately is Human Nature 100% Natural Moisturizing Night Cream with Plant Collagen. I wasn’t able to try the phased out Human Nature Night Moisturizer Royal Jelly and Aloe Vera, but I’m glad I didn’t let this one pass me by.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION from the website:
Skincare magic while you sleep! Plant collagen casts a spell for enchantingly renewed skin by morning.

With that product description from the Human Nature website, I really couldn’t resist trying it out. I originally wanted to purchase the Moisturizing Day Fluid (with 15 vitamins and minerals!) with this, but it was OOS! I still haven’t bought one, though they’ve replenished on the third week of January. I’ll buy one soon and do a review on it as well! ☺
I’ve already mentioned before that I used to hate moisturizing any part of my body because of the heavy, sticky feeling lotions leave me. This goes for my facial skin as well. But having thick creams and moisturizers as the only option is now a thing of the past and women who are not dry-skinned and are on the oily/combi side can have their pick of lightweight moisturizers in the market.
One of such moisturizers that I had the joy of discovering is Human Nature’s Moisturizing Night Cream! It has a light texture and it’s easily absorbed by the skin. Though initially, it would feel a bit greasy, it dries out and is absorbed in a short period of time. No clogged pores, irritations and breakouts for me so far! My face went from SOS to SSS! Soft, smooth, and supple! I had to avoid touching my face because I liked how it felt, heehee. My face has that glow to it when I wake up, I’m just too shy to show my morning just-woke-up-di-pa-nakakapagtoothbrush fez here. 😛
Things noteworthy about this product are it doesn’t have parabens, phthalates, mineral oil or other toxic substances and it has plant collagen! Why rave about products containing collagen? Studies have shown that people, upon reaching their mid-20s, will start to lose collagen which is the fibrous protein essential in keeping those fine lines and wrinkles (gasp!) at bay and maintaining the skin’s elasticity and firmness (say hello to ageing… horrifying! alarming!). While plant collagen (phytocollagen) has a lower absorption rate than animal collagen, it is considered a safe alternative due to concerns about diseases and allergies that might be acquired from animal sources. Another possible source of collagen is fish, aptly called marine collagen. Collagen may be ingested as a capsule or liquid, injected, or applied topically as a cream. I prefer the third option. 😛

Rating: 9 out of 10!
Verdict: I love this product! If not for the scent, I’d be giving it a perfect score. 😛
Word of warning: Not everyone’s skin may be compatible with this product. A friend developed breakouts and we suspect that she’s allergic to an organic ingredient in the moisturizer. Do a patch test first!If you find out that your skin is okay with this product, then by all means, enjoy the benefits! ☺
