I was wondering if anyone could suggest a night creme. I wear make up all day and at night when I sleep I'd like something to wear that "rejuvinates" the skin. I have some dark circles under my eyes, but other than that and a break out here and there, my skin is in good condition. I have combination skin. Any suggestions?

I really like MD Formulations Facial Creme. I have been using it for 6 months and I am vert pleased with it. Also, you might try an eye cream for the dark circles.

La Prairie has some very nice night time creams but they are overpriced big time. I am currently using my La Prairie but I know I'll be switching when I finish it
. Have you tried Arbonne? I heard it has great products and much lesser price.

Chanel has a radiance cream that I've heard good things about but it's expensive and I haven't tried it myself. I have had great luck with Clarins and that line has some night lotions meant especially for night time use but they are pricey as well. I haven't tried the night creams/lotions but I've used other products from Clarins. ROC makes a great anti-wrinkle cream and I've used it for night time and it works great on my combo sensitive skin. You can find ROC at drugstores.

I have been using this new brand called Avene that they sell at CVS. It's a more expensive line but well worth it - they sell little sample kits so if you want to try out their different products you easily can. I recommend it!

I just decided to start using a night creme faithfully last month so I took the hit and bought the Arbonne NutriMinC RE9 line (I'm a consultant so the price was doable). I swear, I didn't know a person could become addicted to a night creme, but here I am ready to enter a 12 step because I would just die without it! I used the night cremem alone first for almost a week without any of the other products and WOW! My skin felt amazing! Even my neck, which is very sun damaged right now, just glows. It feels really light on the skin too.

I really like Benefit's Dear John Nightcream. It has sodium PCA- that is a moisture magnet, Squalene- a natural anti-bacterial, and softening marshmallow root. It feels very rich, but not greasy, My skin always feels so fresh the next morning.

ok, I think I have an addiction problem to dhc, but their coenzyme q10 cream (i got a couple days ago) is awesome. My mom even complimented me the next day. It's pricey, but it's on sale right now. I love it!

I use Avon's Anew. No wrinkles yet so it's doing something I guess!

I know I'm late with the post but I just wanted to add my help=) To be honest if you have good skin and your skin isn't dry or wrinkled your best option for rejuvinating your skin at night would be to simply use a make-up remover, wash your skin with a gentle face wash, and to get your skin extra clean (to ensure all make-up and dirt is gone) and to kill acne causing bacteria you can add in a gentle toner with ingredients like Tea Tree.

Other than that the best thing you can do at night to rejuvinate your skin is to just wear nothing and let your skin breath. By adding an extra moisturizer you could be doing to much to your skin which could have adverse effects. I normally only suggest using night creams for people with acne prone skin or more wrinkled skin (where I would suggest a glycolic acid night cream) or people with very dry skin( which I would recomond a natural moisturizer with oils like emu oil).

Either way I hope you find a good solution that works well for you=)
