Why do I need one, can’t I just use my regular day cream, you ask? ♀️
A night cream is the last step in your nightly routine (unless you use a sleeping mask) and does not only seal in all your previous steps, but it helps so keep your skin moisturized during the night and often contains goodies that calms skin, repairs and prevents prematurely aging. •
This specific one from @versoskincare contains (as a lot of their other products) Retinol 8 that is a stabilized Vitamin A complex , eight times more effective than standard Retinol but half as irritating. Don’t we all want that? Good stuff for our skin but with less of a potential irritation ♀️ yes please! •
What Vitamin A (Retinol) does to the skin is to kick the rejuvenating process into a higher gear by boosting the skin’s natural production of collagen. I know I know, you might be confused now. Collagen what? ♀️ don’t worry! I’ll dedicate a whole post about this, keep your out for this one! •
Besides of the Retinol 8 this wonderful cream contains anti-oxidants from oats who are known to be calming and together with Turmeric the oat extract have significant anti-inflammatory effects. THIS! I love everything that says anti-inflammatory and my does skin too! •

May I present to you, the strobe gels of the strobe gels... the @zoevacosmetics strobe gels in Corona and Halo! in this picture they make look very similar to each other but once you open their jars they are completely different shades, you’ll see #Corona is a warmer a little bit darker peachy/bronze shade that is #gorgeous - I’m almost drooling when looking at them. Just let me bathe in them will you 🧖🏻♀️ #Halo is a lighter more neutral shade with a tad bit of warmth to it, also so gorgeous you might faint when it.. Raise your hand if you are excited to see swatches and how amazingly glowy they look in their jars ♀️
Day cream vs night cream and what is a day cream good for? ♀️ In the morning, after cleansing you want to complete your routine with a day cream with SPF. This one from @versoskincare has SPF 15. I always aim for SPF 30 or greater but since I use an CC cream afterwards that has SPF 30 it doesn’t bother me that this one has only 15.
What is a day cream supposed to do for your skin you’re thinking? ♀️
A day cream is supposed to be working on keeping your skin plumped and moisturized during the day and protect it from harmful UV rays.
This specific one from my favorite brand Verso not only does all of that but it also contains Niacinamide, turmeric and Retinol 8 who all are ingredients that helps to keep the skin soft and protect it from prematurely aging. I will do posts that explain all of these ingredients in depth and why they are so good for the skin, you will not want to miss that! Last thing I want to tell you about this is that the consistency of this cream is pure heaven and moisturize my skin so good. I aim for this one more and more in my morning routine and that says a lot (since I have like 827382 other creams to use lol)! ♀️
