Not all retinol products are created equally. I still remember seeing the metal tube of Retin-A in my grandmother's vanity drawer. She used it religiously until she died at 97! I tried using that kind in college, and the results were very different for me. Instead of clearing up my face, it broke it out. I have ultra sensitive, acne prone, combination fair skin. I have to be very careful about which products I use on my face. The strong version of retinol and the products that contain high amounts can wreck total havoc on my skin. But the right kind can be a miracle worker! That's why I was so happy when I got to try No7's Pure Retinol Fragrance Free Night Cream! I love the brand itself, and I regularly purchase their skincare products. No7 is such high quality brand without the high price tag, I couldn't pass on this one! And I have never known any retinol to be as gentle as No.7 and still be just as effective. I could not believe how good it felt on my skin! Most retinol products dry my face out or break it out, but No7 Pure Retinol Fragrance Free Night Cream did not do either of those. Instead, it left my face looking plump and radiant! It helped correct and even out my skin tone. It made my skin feel super soft and velvety even! It also cleared my face up on my T zone, where I have the most challenges. I couldn't believe how well this product worked! And I didn't even have to gradually introduce it into my skincare regimen. Usually whenever I'm trying out a new product, especially one with retinol, I add it in tiny increments to my skincare routine. But with No7 Pure Retinol Fragrance Free Night Cream, I slathered it on the first night until the last time I used it! I had fewer fine lines and wrinkles, and my skin just looked fabulous! I got compliments from friends and family asking what I've done to my face! I tell them it is not a secret that No7 makes great skincare products! No7 Pure Retinol Fragrance Free Night Cream is just one of the better ones! Highly recommend this to anyone who's tried retinol in the past but thought it was either too harsh or too drying. No7 Pure Retinol Fragrance Free Night Cream is the only retinol night cream I've ever used that did not dry my face out! It instead hydrated and plumped it up, giving me a virtual facelift from smiling! Love this product!
No7 Pure Retinol Night Cream
Thank you at No7 and @Bzzagent for giving me the chance to try No7Pure Retinol Night Cream. This super-affordable eye cream is a triple threat, not only does it contain Retinol but also Matrixyl3000 Plus, (a collagen peptide-based technology known to have restorative effects). Shea Butter is also in this night cream. All 3 of these ingredients are meant to work together and also to be gentle the skin, due to the calming effects of the Shea Butter. Generally my skin might have a little bit of redness or a tingle from Retinol, but this one did not cause any issues. I found it to be pretty thick and it helped to warm it up between my fingers before applying it to my skin. It is supposed to be fragrance-free and there is no fragrance added, however, there is a vaguely medicinal smell, but it doesn't linger. The glass jar it comes in is nice but I prefer a pump to keep it fresher and more hygienic.
It does absorb into the skin quickly leaving it hydrated and not sticky. It is meant to be used all over the face and neck. It is a slow-release formula that is encapsulated for better results. You can apply a serum underneath it if you like. Although I did not find it life-changing, I would like to give it more time. I think this would be a great starter Retinol at .025 % for anyone new to this ingredient. I was able to use it overnight without any redness or sensitivity, and I was careful to always wear my sunscreen the next day as recommended with all Retinol formulas. #gifted
I find it doesn not moisturize as well and the tripleaction night cream

I've only been using this product for about two weeks and I can see a difference. My forehead wrinkles and crows feet have started to diminish. It worth the price.

I cycle through actives during the week and this is one of my absolute must use products. Without fail I wake up to glowy, moisturized and comfortable skin. It's so nice to wake up to a "perfect" skin day. My redness is noticeably reduced and my overall tone is more even. This is perfect for evening moisturization and absorbs quickly. The jar is a nice color and a good weight, and I love the lack of scent. I will absolutely repurchase.

I have worked for high end cosmetic companies and this stuff tops the cake love, love, love it. I'm 57 and people are amazed at my skin. I have normal to dry skin in winter and a little more oilier in summer!
Karen from Houston
I use this cream every night after I've washed my face, and it's working great. It is thick but dissolves quickly. I have rosacea but it doesn't bother me. I'm 57 and so far holding back the wrinkles. I plan to keep using it for a long time.
Natasha R from Westbury, NY
I was actually impressed. The first night I used this cream the next morning my face felt so soft and smooth. I will definitely buy again. I just wished they lowered the price a little lol.

Makes your skin feel silky

I was looking for something to use over my night serum and this was perfect. I love the texture and the fact that it has retinol. It melts right in and I love the feel. I have tried others and they were too oily or did not absorb like this does. I will and have bought again.
DLM from Georgia
Huge fan of No7 creams. But this one tops it. Saw results in less than a week. I have super dry skin, and this is my go-to as soon as I get out of the shower each night. My face is softer, and the difference in my complexion and all around skin texture and small lines are so very noticeable! Highly recommend!!!

I have been using this for just over a week. My skin feels and looks so much better hydrated and smoother.
Selena from Houston
I'm 56 yrs old (whaaa?? how did this happen?) and started getting bruises and bleeding on my arms every time I just bumped into something (insert rolling eyes emojii). Anyway, began using CeraVe retinol serum on them and had fantastic results. It's a little pricey when you're using it ALL over both arms, so decided to try this instead. This is much easier, cheaper, and seems to work just as well. The retinol thickens up the thin, crepey skin, eliminating the bruising/bleeding and makes them look smoother and younger. Highly recommend.
Jocey from Harrisburg Pa
I put it on my face each night and started seeing results in a week. My face feels softer and looks smoother.
Spence from Dallas
A must have last step in my nightly routine. My skin feels amazing after application and I wake up in the morning looking firm and refreshed. A little pricey for my budget (despite being much cheaper than many competitors) but it's worth it. A little goes a long way and the jar doesn't hold a lot of product - so use sparingly. But I will certainly be purchasing again when I run out.
Susie from Henderson, Nv
I use it after my serum at night and the texture is perfect.
I was looking for something that was not too oily.
So far this works great.
Cindy from Texas
This product is great! I could see results right away! No7 products are great!!!
Audrey from USA
I've been using this product almost nightly for roughly a month, and I'm really pleased! I was nervous about trying retinol because of possible skin sensitivity, but I haven't noticed that at all (I should note that I do wear an SPF moisturizer or other type of moisturizer daily, which probably helps). A bonus has been that, since starting this product, I have noticed a significant decrease in the amount of stubborn blemishes on my chin and jawline! Will continue using and have recommended to friends.
NanZ from Los Angeles
I like this product but need more time to be sure how it works. If it's a hit after a month of use I would but it again. Best to use in the evening.
JimmyAnn from Pennsylvania
Covid has done a number on my skin, very dry, rough, even the dreaded mask-ne. I've only used for a few days and already noticed a difference. I can't wait to see the longterm benefits!!
Chamm05 from Maine
This cream and the retinol eye cream are great! My skin feels better and looks younger. I have been using the No. 7 line for years and I'm so thankful that I found this line. I like how this is fragrance free and feels great on my skin. I would recommend this product. I am in my mid-50's and this works perfect for me.
