Most Helpful Positive Review You had me at HELLO!!!
Ok, so I am sucker for pretty packaging. You can get me to buy anything just as long as the packaging is awesome. This is one of the reasons I purchased this night cream. The other reason is that I have been looking for a night cream what seems like ages but was never successful. the biggest reason that they are all super pricey and the reviews that I have read does not match the price. So when elf announced that they were releasing a skin care line, who was excited was me! YES HUNTY!! I just knew I was going to be in for a treat. Off the bat I fell in love with the packaging and then I saw the price. HELLO! Really guys this product looks expensive. But it does not stop there, I struggle with combination oily skin but I have dry patches around my nose area, but it is still oily. I found that my foundation does not look smooth in that area it looks flaky and cakey even after exfoliating. This cream gave me instant results after the very first night I used it. Who was in love? ME! I just purchase my second jar last week because I am running out and did not want to wait until the last minute to buy it again.
I do recommend this product. I am 39 years old and some people think I am younger. Ladies it is very important that we take care of our skin. PLEASE! PLEASE! Wash your face thoroughly before you go to bed at night. DO NOT! I repeat DO NOT! sleep with your makeup on.
Thank you elf for offering an affordable skin care line that actually works. You guys are the best!
Most Helpful Critical Review This is an average night ...
This is an average night cream. It did moisturize my face, which is great, but it said that it would give this great glowing finish and make you look awake in the morning which it didn't. i'll be very straight with you guys, it moisturized which is nice, but didn't do anything more than that

I've never been prone to breakouts, but since using this product I've broken out worse than I ever have before. If you have dry skin, this is likely perfect for you. But if you have oily/combination skin (like me), avoid at all costs.
It made me get bumps on my face
ID from Texas
My face was clear before trying this and I've noticed little bumps on my forehead after trying this. I don't know if it was the product itself but I hadn't had any problems with my skin in a while until I applied this.
Cooling but I wake up with a super dry face
OfeliaTheOcotillo from Phoeniz
I did feel the cooling effect that some other people mentioned in their reviews.
Not sure how I feel about this night cream. I haven't really noticed a difference in how my skin feels.. I wake up with a pretty dry face - feeling completely un-moisturized. Nothing too special about this cream for me.
Will continue to use and pay closer attention.
Thick but light
AlyCat92 from Wichita, KS
I can feel this go on my face and I can feel it keeping my face hydrated but it doesn't feel heavy. It feels like a high quality night cream and my face does not feel oily in the morning.
Not for Combo/Oily Skin
pb from United States
I have combo skin and am always looking for products that can hydrate my skin without it becoming oily. This night cream is very thick and moisturizing, but didn't work well for my skin type. I just prefer lighter weight moisturizers.
Shealynn from Cali
Okay so I was braced for the smell because every other comment said something about a smell.
....There's no smell. Like zero. Those people who smelled something must have super sensitive noses or I'm losing my sense of smell.
Second, some people complained or just mentioned this cream tingles a little.
.....Again, I felt none of the mysterious tingling.
AND there was some comments about waking up and your face not feeling greasy at all.
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE. It's amazing. I have oily skin and my I have used this night cream for the last 3 nights and my skin feels great when I wake up! I love Elf! And have for many years!
Kells from WI
The first time I used this, I noticed an improvement in my skin after two days! I love this product so much. For me, it's faintly cooling, so it's very soothing to put on before bed. It really helps my skin and I've noticed it improving some facial scarring. I've taken to buying two at a time since it's sometimes out of stock at the store and I don't like being without it!
I prefer this over the Holy Hydration cream- this (to me at least) has a bit more of a gel like consistency? Whatever it is, it feels like it really soaked into my skin and doesn't leave it feel greasy or sticky.
Nourishment at night!
regina918 from Taunton MA
I've used tons of night creams and this one's at the top! I wear this over my retinol serum at bedtime and never wake up dry or flaky. It keeps my face soft and supple all night! It's a winner!
Serene15 from New York, NY
I've gotten this cream like 5 times already and I truly love it. It's not too heavy for my oily skin and it leaves a beautiful glow when I wake up in the morning.

This burns after using and smells terrible. I would recommend something else.
ReekaRose from undisclosed
Just started to get into skin hair and got this. Other than the small like old flower water it does a very good job nourishing the skin. I had very red and irritated skin after my Halloween makeup and this helped it heal so quickly.
A hidden gem!
Kat from Aurora, CO
This is seriously one of my favorite skin care products I've ever used, and I bought it totally at random! I had been really into the Neutrogenia Gel moisturizer but I wanted something a little richer for fall and winter. I saw this on a shelf and thought "hey that's a big tub of product for a decent price" and bought it.
This stuff just glides into my skin perfectly! It is completely non-greasy and so light yet nourishing. I've honestly never found a moisturizer quite like it - it looks and feels like a heavy thick formula but melts immediately into my skin. It works so well over the thick viscous serums that are popular with skin care right now.
I really love this stuff and even though it says night cream, I find myself even using it sometimes for my day moisturizer if I'm already using a SPF product in my foundation. This is truly a hidden gem!
Beth from Sierra Vista, AZ
I can't fully review this, because I was allergic to it. I had to return the product due to the allergy. I only tried it once and so therefore I can't review it.
Anonymous R from Ny
The minute you open the box, it smells like plastic and chemicals. When you use it, it just smells like car gas.
It did moisturize my skin but...
Girl who needs a better skin care from McAllen TX, USA
After of using this product for a week I did notice my skin was less dry than usual. But I also notice random bumps on my forehead and cheeks. So I decided to stop using this product and the breakout stopped.
Love this product!
angel from virginia
This product feels great on the skin. I put a decent amount on before I go to sleep and it feels so moisturizing. When I wake up in the morning, my skin doesnt feel excessively oily or anything, like some night creams can make i . I love it
Decent cheap moisturizer
Gina from CA
It's not as hydrating as I thought. I prefer thicker formulas for my night creams cause I know it lasts all night. It doesn't leave my face as soft as before. I tried adding face oil to give me the extra moisture that my dry skin needs right now. I think the cerave moisturizer does a better job.
Amazingly light & super-moisturizes your skin
IdahoLiz from Boise, Idaho
Night creams tend to clog up my pores -- I end up with breakouts and/or milia. But this cream is really light and non-greasy. It does a great job repairing any extra dryness or peeling your skin is suffering from.
Good, basic night cream
Britney98 from Seattle, WA
I really am enjoying this night cream! I've used it for a couple weeks now layered usually with either Laneige's Cica Sleeping Mask or Farmacy's Sleep Tight balm. The combination of the night cream and the balm is definitely my favorite. The night cream is nice on it's own; it's pretty lightweight in feeling which is something I tend to look for in moisturizers. I don't feel like my skin is being suffocated but I can definitely tell it's being hydrated. Anyone with oily or combination skin would be able to use this on it's own and it would easily keep you moisturized all night, however those on the dry side like me might want to supplement this cream with some sort of facial oil because it is quite a bit on the lighter side for night creams.

I love other elf products so I bought this yesterday and the smell is so terrible. I still tried it and I just can't stand the smell. It doesn't go away!
Soft Skin Overnight
Heather266 from undisclosed
If I use this night cream before bed, when I wake up in the morning, my skin feels significantly softer. It hasn't given me acne. The reason I give this night cream 4 instead of 5 stars is sometimes after I shower, if I put this on immediately, it burns and causes my skin to get pink and bumpy. I'm not sure what the cause of this is, but the irritation subsides in like 30 minutes. It has happened many times, so I stick to using it when I haven't showered immediately before using it.
One of my all tome favorite products!!!
Casscott from Norman,Ok
Use this at night after washing face before bed. It helps keep my face so moisturized it never feels oily on my skin
Ash from San Antonio, Tx
Love this product, it definitely gave me the moisture i needed with this dry Texas heat! I love it because I'm normally an oily person but this cream doesn't not leave me all oily in the morning. It's just a nice soft smooth face in the morning I love it! And for the price, I mean come on!
Grace215 from Texas
I got the sample of this in the Jet Set Hydration and it has become a new favorite of mine! I have a bleeding disorder and tend to get bruises and cuts easily and they take a long time to heal, I put this on when ever I get cut up and it heals so much faster than it would on its own! It's my own little miracle product! It works wonders for razor burn and little cuts from the razor as well!
Oily, sensitive, acne-prone skin? This is for you
vianie from Michigan
My face is extremely oily and I've always had hormonal acne. I had been struggling to find a lotion that was compatible with these traits and low and behold I come across this product- and it's cheap (bonus!). I haven't had a major breakout since using this and it is the perfect amount of hydration for my oily skin. I have also always had a problem with really sensitive skin around my eyes and mouth- almost every face lotion I tried before this one irritated my eyes (redness, puffiness, dryness). I searched around for natural products hoping to fix this but nothing worked for me until I found this elf cream! I have never written a review before for any product, no matter how much I loved it, but I felt the need to make an exception for this product because it is now an essential part of my skin care routine and it is wonderful. I love it so much I use it during the day also. Take it from me as someone who has struggled with my skin for at least a decade. This product is a keeper.
