Best Nighttime Cream Ever is African Botanics Fleurs d'Afrique Intensive Recovery Cream #AfricanBotanics

Press Sample (Affiliate Links) #Repost

When the Makeup Wars Team decided to feature our all-time favorite night creams, I didn't even need to take pause to think about which one I would select. In fact, the only face cream that came to mind was African Botanics Fleurs d'Afrique Intensive Recovery Cream.

That I love African Botanics has been well-established in these virtual pages, and it is safe to say that it is by far my absolute favorite eco-luxe skincare brand, and it is actually my overall favorite skincare brand for that matter. This company, lovingly created by Julia and Craig Noik, has unquestionably cracked the code on creating ultra-luxe skincare products that are healthy, non-toxic, effective and the pinnacle of luxury. They carefully scrutinize every single ingredient that they use in each of their products, and only select the finest available– irrespective of the cost. Each product is a study in elegant textures, unsurpassed efficacy and a potent symphony of actives. If a brand that is cruelty-free and that practices Fair Trade, sustainability, and that creates economic opportunities for the people in the Noik's native South Africa is important to you– then African Botanics is a brand that you really must try. African Botanics Fleurs d'Afrique Intensive Recovery Cream, which is an extraordinary day and night cream, is ultra-luxe, highly effective, and delivers on its claims.
African Botanics Fleurs d'Afrique Intensive Recovery Cream is a remarkably lightweight, and yet very emollient, ultra moisturizing cream that can be used alone, or perfectly paired with African Botanics Fleurs d'Afrique Intensive Recovery Oil (Reviewed HERE). When paired with its companion oil, the oil can either be applied first to warm, damp skin, or mixed directly with the cream and applied to the skin. If your skin requires added nourishment and hydration the ultra-luxurious coupling of these two products delivers tangible results and unsurpassed efficacy. Used alone, Fleurs d'Afrique Intensive Recovery Cream is the most luxurious and nourishing cream that I have tried to date.

The lightweight formula immediately melts into the skin and it soothes, heals and moisturizes. Filled with antioxidant-rich anti-aging and anti-inflammatory "night blooms, indigenous Africa Desert and Bush Plants" –these ingredients encourage skin cell renewal while deeply nourishing and hydrating the skin, plumping fine lines, and reducing redness and inflammation. The soothing and anti-inflammatory properties make this cream equally effective for blemished skin, skin prone to redness and inflammation, or any skin type in need of added hydration. So calming and healing is this cream, that it has become my go-to post-peel pick. I use it morning and night, and I definitely see a notable difference in my skin. My skin is remarkable soft, silky smooth, supple, hydrated, luminous, fresh in appearance and my fine lines are plumped. In my experience, this is by far the most effective cream that I have tried, and its heavenly ultra-light aroma, which is a subtle amalgam of the Jasmine Flower Water and the other aromatic ingredients, is neither too pronounced, nor is it long-lasting, and therefore it won't pose a problem for people with olfactory sensitivities.
According to African Botanics,

From a distant world of truly wild and remote locations far from all civilization and light pollution in the most southern hemisphere of Africa, there is eternal beauty that endures all time. Where exotic night blooms, indigenous African Desert and Bush Plants™ have adapted to survive the challenges of their environment - harnessed and captured with a potent concentration of highly advanced marine biotechnology that is packed with anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, soothing and healing properties.

Enhanced with a unique Blue Marine Micro Algae and a high concentration of plant peptides, this light, multi-correcting face cream stimulates cell renewal, plumps, protects and envelops the skin. Restores skin’s density and bounce while improving texture and luminosity. Deeply hydrates, infuses skin with moisture. Helps fade and fight the signs of aging skin: fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, inflammation, dryness and sagging skin. Strengthens skin’s barrier and offers superior protection from free radical damage. Promotes firming and toning of the skin with ultra-light and silky texture. Soothes, calms and reduces redness, speeding the recovery of the damaged cells.
Directions: Suitable for all skin types. USE AM and PM to increase hydration, replenish moisture, soothe and de-stress the skin while firming and promoting rapid repair. Apply to face, neck and d茅collet茅. Glide in gentle strokes along jawline up towards the ears from the center of your face towards temples and from the base of your neck upward to boost circulation. For skin in need of intense hydration, apply a few drops of Intensive Recovery Oil before applying the cream.

    1. Eco-luxe is definitely an apt description of this cream, and their entire line! It is the most sublime cream that I have used, and it is so potent and effective! It's definitely not a casual purchase at that price point, but on is it ever worth every cent!
