Most Helpful Positive Review Incredible Results
All year round, but especially in winter, my face has such dry skin. Nothing helps - I feel like I've tried everything on the market. After I got the No7 HydraLuminous Overnight Recovery Gel Cream, I was excited but skeptical to try it; everything else has failed, this probably will, too. BUT IT DIDN'T. I applied this to my face after I removed my makeup and washed my face. I went to bed. Same routine as always, but this time when I woke up, my skin didn't feel dehydrated. I was amazed. I tried it again - it's gotta be beginner's luck, right? NOPE. This still works amazingly well, and I've been using it every night for a few weeks now.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not really sure where it fits in my routine...
I don't have anything terrible to say about this product. I received it free to try and I was really excited for the opportunity. I'm a skin care fanatic and this was my first time using a no. 7 product. But I'm not really sure how it fits in my existing skin care routine and I'm a little confused about the purpose. At this price point (very affordable), and with it's lack of active, anti-aging ingredients, I'd recommend this product for someone in their teens or early 20s.
The oblong shape of the jar is unusual and very attractive. It looks nice on a vaniety and stands out next to other products. But the oblong shape makes it slower to open and close and a little clumsy.
The texture of the product is nice and it absorbs quickly, but it's more of a light cream than a gel-cream. It layered under my usual products just fine and is very lightly scented.
It claims to mouisturize skin and has ingredients they call a 'polution Shield'. Usually those are antioxidants in other products, but you don't see the usual heavy hitters used in other products in this category. I'm also confused on the point of a pollution shield in a night cream. Conventual skin advice recommends one wear a product containing antioxidants during the day to counteract the free radical damage exposure to pollution, etc causes. I'm not sure what benefit it does in a night cream.
Overall, for me, this product doesn't really seem to have a place in my routine. I'm in my early 30s and I rely on products with more proven, active ingredients. This just doesn't have what it needs to replace any of my existing products and doesn't seem to add anything new either.
I don't see the no. 7 as a brand that is marketed toward very young/new skin care buyers, but this product would be a perfect entry point for a young person just learning to take care of their skin that doesn't need (and can't afford) any powerful ingredients yet.

I had high expectations for this product. As someone with extremely dry skin, I am always looking for relief. It has a nice texture and was gentle on my skin but didnt hydrate as well as I had hoped.

carolynt13 from undisclosed
I loved the way this makes my skin feel when I first put it on. It feels light and weightless, not sticky. Overall it seems to work as well as most creams/gels in this type of product. It doesnt seem to work better, but because of the good price, I am rating 4 stars. Id buy again.

Great lightweight nighttime moisturizer. My face definitely still feels refreshed in the morning. A little bit definitely goes a long way. It has a very light scent. Been using it for a couple weeks and I'm so glad I switched to it. Highly recommend!

I have super Sensitive skin, I dread buying new products because of my skin flare ups. But I would def recommend this product because it has not given me any issues. The price is just right.

billeew from undisclosed
I tried both this product and the Hydra Luminous Water Surge Gel cream by No. 7 and I think Id prefer the latter. My reasoning being that this product seemed too lightweight considering the name of it. When I think of a recovery cream, I imagine an occlusive, rich cream that will balance my moisture barrier and be extra hydrating for days when your skin is feeling extra dry. I felt like the Water Surge Gel from this brand did a better job at this. So I would not repurchase this item.
