Developed by a cosmetic surgeon, NightSkin is said to produce results in only one week. Advertisements say that adult acne and discoloration can be diminished in only seven days. NightSkin also claims the ability to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce discoloration, smooth the skin, protect the skin, and exfoliate the skin all while consumers sleep.
Dr. Perry developed NightSkin to be effective without moisturizing agents. He believes that people are addicted to moisturizers so he developed a serum that lacks those specific agents. NightSkin also lacks peptides but includes the components of retinyl instead. But does Dr. Perry’s theory actually work?
Description and Ingredients
By leaving out peptides, agents that have been proven to increase the production of elastin and collagen, NightSkin believes it can still improve skin through other components. One of these components is retinyl propionate, derived from vitamin A. This is used as the number one wrinkle-fight ingredient in NightSkin; however vitamin A has not been proven to reduce the look of wrinkles because it does not have the ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
NightSkin also contains glycolic acid for exfoliating purposes and L-ascorbic acid as an antioxidant. Neither of these agents have the ability to reduce the look of wrinkles. The only other ingredient listed is licorice extract that works as a skin brightener.
Does it work around the eyes?
NightSkin is not specifically formulated to work around the eyes.
NightSkin does not list all of its ingredients, which can lead to allergic reaction and irritation. Most of NightSkin users have reported experiencing irritation, redness, burning, or itching directly following use of NightSkin. Because Dr. Perry is aware that this happens he recommends using NightSkin only twice a week. It is quite obvious that the irritation develops because consumers are unaware what is in the product.
NightSkin also lacks the needed ingredients to produce collagen and elastin stimulation. NightSkin comes with a price tag of nearly fifty dollars, which is quite high especially for a product that has a reputation of side effects. Without the needed ingredients NightSkin is ineffective in reducing the look of wrinkles and fine lines.
