I’m 26, and finding the perfect night cream is extremely difficult. Most night creams on the market make my skin extremely oily in the morning, while others are just “too old” for me. I’m not trying to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, and I don’t need to lighten brown spots.
But I really care about taking care of my skin, and finishing my nightly routine off with toner just seems wrong. So what do us 20-somethings do about the lack of night creams on the market for our age group? Nothing! Even though it took me six years, I finally found the solution.
I was recently introduced to a company called Stages of Beauty — the first and only skincare brand to be formulated specifically by age.
They have four different lines, with each line catering to a different age group. I tried Radiance, which is for women in their twenties. According to Stages of Beauty:
Biological changes happen like clockwork; however, most skincare brands fail to consider age in their formulations. As a result, our skin falls short of its absolute best. Stages of Beauty understands that we’re fighting against more than wrinkles! Many other changes are occurring, like increased sun sensitivity (triggering sun spots and spider veins), dulling complexion, and thinning and thirsty skin—just to name a few. At Stages of Beauty we believe that there is beauty in every stage of life.
I tested out the Radiance Treatment Cream and I was beyond impressed. It can be used both day and night, but since I already wear a lotion with SPF during the day, it has become my nighttime go-to.
The cream is extremely lightweight and goes on smooth. The bottle says to use 3-4 pumps, but two was more than enough for both my face and neck.
It applies almost like a gel, which I love! By the time I wake up, my skin looks refreshed — not oily. According to the website:
With continued use it is proven to help repair the skin and prevent the premature appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Did I mention Stages of Beauty is all-natural? It’s not tested on animals and it’s free of sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals, synthetic dyes, phthalates, and GMOs! On the ingredient list you’ll see things like honeysuckle and radish root, so it’s perfect for those with sensitive skin.
This night cream isn’t budget-friendly (it costs $50 for 30ml), but it’s definitely worth the splurge. If you’re interested in giving it a try, they’re offering a free sample on their website!
