Niacinamide reduces water loss and the drying effects of retinol by increasing the synthesis of ceramides and keratinocyte differentiation in the s.corneum (2000 Tanno). Retinol can double the thickness of the epidermis from 60 to 120 micron in 7 days (2017 Shao), and increase the amount of fibrous tissue in the hypodermis 2-5x after 8 weeks (2000 Franchimont). Both help even skin tone and prevent blemishes.

I like this product because it's one of the view my sensible skin can actually bare, if I don't use it every day. I didn't give full points, because it's not doing the miracles I hope for. Sure, for a full effect I'd have to combine it with the other products of the line (which I can't because that's too aggresive for my skin) - 5 points if you develop a product that is even more sensitive and has even better results. Over all very satisfied!
Love this product. Gives me smooth skin, less visible pores and fewer pimples.
I first tried Night a couple of years ago, and I was hooked from the start. I struggled with cystic acne for years, getting at least a new and painful breakout every month or so, and having to wait at least two weeks for it to heal properly. It only took a few days of using this product to transform my skin. The huge and unsightly bumps became smaller and appeared less frequently, before disappearing completely. If you've tried everything, as I did, this is the product for you! Plus, the anti-aging benefits are a nice bonus :)
I have adult acne and have been looking for a product that would help heal my skin after breakouts and diminish acne scars without over-moisturizing my skin. I have used Night a handful of times now and have already seen a massive improvement of my skin's health. Follow the directions for your age & skin-type. This is a powerful product, & the directions are designed to keep you safe and to give you the best results. I highly recommend giving Night a try.
Custom Analytics, a FDA registered lab, verifies the retinol concentration of each batch of Night. Only pure retinol has been extensively studied at ~10 mg/week or 20 pumps of Night. Avoid encapsulated or retinol derivatives (we know palmitate is less effective) that will make dosing and efficacy guesswork.
