With the promise of a “fresh, youthful-looking glow” and “rested appearance” to the skin, I was anxious to try Eslor Active Night Cream ($95 in the shop) on my 64-year-old face.
The active ingredients were intriguing... Matrixyl 3000, hydrolyzed soy milk protein, ginseng extract, sea buckthorn oil, aloe vera gel, peach kernel oil, mango butter, almond butter, glycerin and carrot oil (carrot oil?). The Active Night Cream is also 100% free of parabens, sodium Lauryl sulfate (SLS) and sodium lauryl ether sulfate (SLES).
Being familiar with the benefits of the other ingredients, I researched carrot oil and came across this description: “Carrot seed oil is used in skin creams to nourish, tighten, revitalize and rejuvenate skin. It visibly improves skin tone, elasticity and general skin health. Claimed to slow the progression of visible wrinkles, carrot seed oil is calming and appropriate for irritated skin. It is a good essential oil for anyone who spends time outdoors. Carrot seed oil has high-activity antioxidant properties.”
Eslor Active Night Cream came beautifully packaged in a generous 1.7 oz. jar. After nearly two weeks of nightly use, I almost stopped using it. The cream is very heavy (not recommended for oily skin), and for me, that might have been a deal-breaker. I dislike heavy creams on my face, especially in the summer (no air conditioning) on these sticky Midwestern nights.
I kept on though, and around the third week, I noticed that the lines under my eyes and around my mouth seemed less pronounced. By week four, I realized that my neck looked great... the dreaded crepiness was almost gone, and the skin on my 64-year-old face looked younger and tighter.
I’ve gone past the initial 30-day trial to nearly six weeks, and I must say that the skin on face and neck are visibly improved. I’ve also used it on my hands at night with equal success, and there are at least two weeks of cream still left in the jar.
