This night cream re-energizes the cell’s natural energy-producing mitochondria while you sleep for younger-looking skin

Pros

Improves elasticity, softens and smooths skin, adds radiance

Cons

Not for purists

I must admit that I went into my trial of MitoQ Skin Boosting Active Night Cream ($145) with very mixed feelings. The original MitoQ is such a fantastically effective product with essentially one key ingredient, and I feared that complicating things would not be an improvement. But I was wrong. I love this night cream, and it is very complimentary with the original MitoQ serum, which I have been using in the mornings.

After a month long MitoQ fix, my skin is very happy. I am particularly impressed by a feeling of improved elasticity, as well as softer skin and an all round healthy glow. As noted by Jennifer B in her recent review, MitoQ Skin Boosting Active Night Cream is a really pleasant cream to use. It is moisturizing without being overly unctuous (as can be the case with some night creams, at least for my slightly slick skin) and hasn’t much of a discernible scent.

The star of the ingredients line up is, of course mitoquinol mesylate, or MitoQ, a turbo charged form of the antioxidant ubquinone that has been honed to target straight at the heart of the mitochondria. This is energy powerhouse of our cells and without mitochondria we wouldn’t be alive and, as you might guess, its activity slows down as we age.

A very good companion for MitoQ and its cell energy boosting is the peptide palmitoyl tripeptide-38 that goes by the name of Matrixyl Synthe’6. It regulates cell activity, wound repair and collagen tissue remodeling. Specifically, as the name suggests it stimulates six major constituents of the skin matrix and the dermal-epidermal junction.

The third key active is the anti-aging workhorse niancinamide. It is a derivative of vitamin B3 that suppresses melanin from reaching the surface of the skin and protects the skin from further UV damage. Hence it can prevent the deepening of existing areas of hyperpigmentation and help stop new ones from forming.

With natural emollients such as avocado oil and not much to dislike, apart from sodium hydroxide, this cream is recommended for anyone looking for a highly effective anti-aging night cream that relies on cell regeneration rather than exfoliation to do its job. And, of course, it is a must for anyone who is a MitoQ fan and wants another product to up their dose of this very potent antioxidant.
