Snowberry Cellular Regeneration Night Cream ($104) is HUGELY appealing once one gets used to the suntan oil/beachy scent... but then after a while, it grows on you and especially now as summer gets into high gear, it’s really very welcome at the end of a hot day.

My overall opinion is that the product is made of very good, very high quality ingredients and nothing harmful – it’s certified in New Zealand, which I believe mean that it is organic, even though it doesn’t state that on the package/box. There are NO lauryl sulphates, petrochemicals, propylene or butylene glycols, volatile alcohols, artificial colors, silicones and DEA or MEA ingredients. I like the clean packaging and various environmentally friendly elements of the product, such the brand being carbon zero and having recyclable packaging. It’s also in a pump and a good size for traveling, and a little goes a long way. The only slightly odd thing is that it says on the box to avoid contact with eyes… I did put it around my eyes with no ill effects.

If you already have good skin, this will keep it that way. Apart from that, however, I’m not sure how much of a difference it made in my skin over a 10-week period (it lasts a LONG time) - in other words, I still have the same fine crow’s feet by my eyes, and the same laugh lines (although not deep), so there are no miracles here. But as I’ve said in other reviews, I’m not sure I believe in miracles to begin with - so I’d have to be seriously swayed by some spectacular results.

However, that being said, my skin has maintained a healthy glow (which I had before I started using it) and has not resulted in any itchy moments or breakouts. I have ended up loving the scent, which I found VERY off-putting to begin with, and looking forward to using this at night. I will use it up and am now very interested to try the rest of the line - which is what happens it seems when one is sent one sample of a multi-product line. So - again, this is absolutely lovely, but it’s not some high-tech life/face-altering cream.
