Age-Defying Vegan Night Cream – ‘Cause We Could All Use a Little Assistance…Erin Lecky
Up until several years ago, I used the same moisturizer both in the morning and at night. I had always been a minimalist in my beauty routine, never giving much thought to the products I was using as long as they satisfied the requisites of being cruelty-free and vegan. Then my thirties came along and, surprise surprise, as it always tends to happen with time, I noticed more and more fine lines. My vegan diet and mindful lifestyle had been doing a pretty good job keeping age at bay but I decided it was finally time to step the routine up a notch as my skin fell prey to the inevitable perils of time. Maybe I’m being overly dramatic, but either way, those fine lines needed their enthusiasm curbed. So as one does, I turned to the interwebs for help.
Defying age with some creamy assistance
The Andalou Resveratrol Q10 Night Repair Cream was one of the first products that turned up in my search results, as it satisfied all my stipulations. As well as being vegan and using organic, non-GMO, and fair-trade ingredients, it’s also made with fruit stem cells, which I had never heard of before, but it sounded pretty darn cool! The “age-defying” title seemed like a pretty big claim, but hey, if the vegan diet can help defy age then it’s quite possible that some fruit stem cells can do the same, right?
The first thing I noticed about the cream when I opened its pretty purple jar was the smell. To me, it smells just like cake, and I’m not gonna lie – I definitely wanted to taste it. Refraining from putting it in my mouth, I applied the cream to my face and neck and was pleasantly surprised by the feel. It’s slightly thicker than most creams I’ve tried and I expected it to be oily, but it rubbed nicely into my skin with no oily residue. It left my skin feeling soft and cakey-fresh (yes, that’s a good thing).
Does this vegan night cream actually work?
As for the age-defying claim: well, I’ve been using Andalou’s night cream for about three years now, and I just so happen to get a lot of surprised looks when I tell people my age. I haven’t noticed any deepening of my fine lines since I began using the product. Chalk it up to my lifestyle, the vegan cream, or both – I know that for me, this age-defying cream is a keeper. I hope you’ll enjoy it too!
