This is not an unbiased review... I love Andalou products (never bought one I didn't love). I use Andalou's 1000 Roses daily moisturizer in the morning (I don't think they sell it on Ulta) paired with this moisturizer at night. I like a thick night time moisturizer... it makes me feel like it's doing things. That being said, after a few minutes it does absorb and I have not found it to be sticky or greasy as other reviews have said. Smells neutral. Also their new packaging is really pretty and lets be honest thats why I buy things.
I got a sample of this cream in an Ulta purchase, but because the ingredients aren't listed here I had to go look them up on the Andalou website. (I remove the packaging with tiny print
from samples so they'll fit in a small case on my vanity.) See below for the full list.
While I liked the ingredients and the earthy cocoa butter scent, I didn't like how it left my skin velvety & pasty matte, rather than moisturized and plumped.
I'd recommend this product to anyone with combination to slightly dry skin who likes more natural skin care & a matte feel from their night cream.

I am extremely happy with all of your products

I've used this product for years and something has changed in the formula. It's an unusual consistency and no longer smells good. The Age Defying Goji Peptide Perfecting Cream is much thicker. This does not feel like a night cream.

I have used this for years and I know it makes a difference. My skin feels smooth before bed and feels healthy when I wake up

Seems to be a great night cream so far! Noticing some fine lines diminishing. Rubs in good with a nice texture.

Good cream for my face
Lia B. from Undisclosed
So far so good with this cream! I've tried other products in the age defying selection, but not resveratrol. I was hesitant based on other reviews about the smell, but I don't find it unpleasant. Cream soaks in well.

Like this product, it's one of the items I rotate during the day.

It pains me to write this. The version of this I've used every day for over a year was phenomenal, the best face product I've ever found. As of right now (March 2023), the ingredients for that version are even still listed on this website. But when you buy online, you get a tacky, bad-feeling and dull-smelling new formula––strikingly similar to a dermal filler cream I once bought from them and didn't like. The vanilla scent is gone, and the vanilla isolates are gone from the ingredient list. Instead there's that old generic term "fragrance (parfum)." The new version feels like plastic and smells dull and unpleasant. The consistency is awful. This is heartbreaking. When I wrote to Andalou, they told me they've switched to production in Australia to cut costs and changed the formula at the same time. So basically, profit over product quality. I'm stunned to see companies make shortsighted decisions like this. Sure, you'll save some pennies producing a worse quality product in a place you can get away with paying people less (boo)... but fewer of us will buy it and you'll lose money in the end. No amount of polished marketing/sales language about how you're sure we'll love your new formulas or another product will change that. Fix this before it's too late. You had a good product. Whatever corporate consultant or penny-pinching exec made the decision to do this should be ousted, and their salary go toward paying workers and using the formula that works. Not changing it and hoping we don't notice or you can gaslight us into believing marketing tropes.

Feels good and my face feels moisturized all through the next morning. Would definitely reorder again.

I hope it's repairing my skin and making it younger and softer while I sleep!

My skin felt so luxurious in the morning, in fact, It feels great immediately. I love it very much!!!!

Great non- greasy moisturizer that sinks in quickly. Helps with skin tone and texture. Wish it had a fragrance though. It's supposed to be unscented but the slight "smell" it has is weird and displeasing. At least it dissipates a soon as it soaks in. When you are putting your nighttime moisturizer on after a long day, you want it to be a nice scent to end the day with.

My go-to night cream for several years now. Thanks for making a great product.
Dana O. from Undisclosed
I have yet to find an Andalou product that I don't like. This one is no different. I goes on smooth, absorbs quickly and makes my skin feel smooth and youthful. I love it.

I have been using the Q10 Night Repair Cream for years and LOVE it!! I don't know what my skin would look like without this night repair cream, but I think it looks great for being 68years old. Thank you for creating it!!

I have very dry and sensitive skin, especially during wintertime. This moisturizes my skin really nicely and leaves my skin feeling soft and dewey and does not irritate whatsoever. It smells very fresh and I've found a little goes a long way.

With the Turmeric + C Enlighten Serum, it makes my skin feel smooth and plump.

Lotion is wonderful.
Alice D. from Undisclosed
I love this night cream it is so hydrating and smells amazing. I wake up with a glowing complexion. My skin is a little sensitive and this night cream is wonderful. I am so happy I discovered this skin care line.
Edwina G. from Undisclosed
Good night cream or for when skin feels dry.
Katie M. from Undisclosed
Smells great, moisturizes beautifully. Definitely a fan.
Kim D. from Undisclosed
I used to love this night cream, it was so rich & hydrating but they seem to have recently changed the formula and now it is really watered down, as are the cleanser & serum in the same range. Very disappointing :cry:

I like that the Q10 product is thick. More like a butter consistency. Also the scent is interesting. I'd call it Birthday Cake frosting. All that is fine, however it appears to be flaring my Rosacea and I bought 2 jars.

I love that cream, nice texture, pleasant smell. It gets absorbed very well.
