Pond's Gold Night Repair

Pricing: R189.99

What we say:
I was worried that the cream may be too rich for my skin (as many night creams that target wrinkles are), but it turned out that it is not moisturising enough. The gold particles in the night cream are bigger and a lot more than in the day cream. They make me look very glittery and they seem to irritate my skin upon application. This is not a product that I would purchase for myself as it is just not nourishing enough for my skin.
– Charlene

The very fine visible gold microparticles of this luxurious-feeling product make my skin look pretty. The purpose of the product is to fade dullness and fight ageing. I have ‘combination’ skin, and this product makes some areas a little dry, however, it made my skin look great.I like it and I’d recommend it only because it made my skin look great. I don’t like the visible gold particles or the fragrance. I’d buy it and alternate use with other products.
– Jessica

This is truly the star of the Pond’s Gold Radiance range.
Long after application you still feel enveloped by that delicious delicate fragrance. I love the gold glitter effect on my skin after application. It left my skin with a healthy radiant glow. My husband noticed the difference on my first application.
– Kaamilah

This night cream felt very luxurious on my skin and much more nourishing than the day cream, without it feeling too heavy (non pore-clogging). I definitely felt like this night cream was really feeding my skin while I was sleeping, and it felt revived, regenerated and fresh in the morning. Overall I found my skin to have improved in ‘brightness’ and radiance after using this range for a couple of weeks, with the night cream (together with the serum) becoming a favourite in my skincare routine.

I was quite excited to try the Youthful Night Repair as I am still on the hunt for a good night cream! I do have a combination, acne-prone skin so I try to avoid really rich creams and that usually means night creams, but having just turned 30 I would really like to try and find one that can give me all the benefits of a good cream without the oiliness! This cream is meant to regenerate your skin so you wake up looking revived, refreshed and younger looking. I did like it and when I awoke my skin did feel plumper but I did not notice any visible difference to my skin’s texture. But my skin did feel a tad red and sensitive after using it for around a week so I had to give it a break.
– Danielle

The thick cream feels like it is providing intense and decadent moisture to my skin, in the manner of Cleopatra’s milk baths. The thick creamy texture did not sit on the surface of my skin as most thick creams do. My skin easily absorbed the cream and I awoke the every morning with silky skin and on most mornings there was not a pimple or redness in sight.
– Roxanne

The cream is thick in consistency but not so thick that if feels ‘mucky’ on your face. Like the day cream though, the night cream left a white cast on my face. I however, was not concerned about this at all since it is a night cream applied when you go to sleep. In the morning before cleansing, my skin looks refreshed and ‘woken up’.
– Adelaide

Night Repair does exactly as the name says. After a hard day’s work, duties at home your skin looks tired and dull. After a nights rest with the Night Repair Cream on your face, there’s definitely a huge difference. Your skin feels soft, refreshed and plump. I highly recommend this product and will also buy it again myself.
– Marina

This product smells very nice, like a soft perfume. It is a very smooth product and it is not sticky or oily. It makes my skin feels replenished and hydrated without the oiliness or stickiness. My husband noticed the improvement in my skin tone and complexion. This product really helps for my skin because I have less break outs and my skin is softer and it has a new golden glow. I would buy this product because I now know what I need to use for perfect skin.
– Diana

After cleaning your skin and you apply your night cream you can just feel the softness. The little spatula helps you to spoon just the right amount out. Your skin is left soft and beautiful after you apply your night cream and the cream works while you are sound asleep. The next morning you can see the difference.
– Lorraine

As with the day cream, the night cream is a must have. It was such a fantastic finish to the facial steps I followed. It was smooth and once covering my skin I felt moisturized and complete. I have used many products claiming to be for sensitive skin and this is one of very few I could commit to without fear after a few days.
– Lynn

The cream itself is a gorgeous creamy-golden shade and feels thick and rich to the touch. It smells gorgeous – like flowers. The rich texture is perfect for my combination skin – not too rich but not at all drying. It’s almost like wearing a BB cream to bed – nice to wake up not looking like death in the morning! It’s hard to tell at this point whether my lines and dark spots are improving or not. But I do feel that my skin is generally looking better – smoother and lighter.
– Marguerite

This is the first time I have used this product and I have found it to be a light, easy to apply night cream. It has a pleasant fragrance that is not overpowering. This cream leaves my skin glowing and feeling gorgeously soft, although my skin tends to be very dry at night and I had to apply a second layer about an hour later on a few occasions. I didn’t like the little spatula that comes with it, as I found it a little hard to use.
– Melanie

Kudos to the manufacturer for the spatula which, when used, ensures no bacteria enters the cream. The non comedogenic claim was encouraging and true to its claim, my pores were not blocked. The cream had a slight fatty feel on my face- this feel faded quickly as it was absorbed by my skin. On waking up, my skin still felt soft. Sadly, I had to discontinue use as I experienced a slight redness and a hint of itchiness.
– Retha

This 50g night cream is every bit as luxurious as the beautiful gold packaging leads you to believe. To make things easier (and ensure you don’t over apply) it comes with a nifty little spatula applicator. Thick and creamy, a little of this lightly fragranced cream goes a long way to leave your skin feeling moisturised, plumped and as soft as sin. Your skin looks more radiant and even when you wake up, and after just two weeks of use my friends and family have definitely noticed the difference.
– Serisha

The cream was a bit hard at first but mixed with the youth serum I found that it did not clump.I don’t like the flat container as it is not user friendly and takes up space. I love the fact that when I wake up I don’t have to worry about my skin looking dull like I had a bad night. I wake up with fresh looking skin. I would absolutely recommend and repurchase this cream.
– Jassika

This was a nice rich cream which came with a small spatula to scoop the cream out.The only problem with this cream was that I would wake up the next morning and my face would feel sticky and puffy and I couldn’t wait to wash this product off… Almost like my skin couldn’t breathe with this product on. After 3 weeks I was forced to stop this product and return to my normal skin products. Whether it was the actual gold particles blocking my pores or whether it was that the product was just too rich for me – I don’t know…
– Louise

The packaging is well presented and includes a spatula for application which is perfect for hygiene purposes and it is easy to use. It spreads and absorbs well, only a small amount is required and the skin is left with a slight sparkle. This night cream is light in texture compared to other night creams and the skin is not left greasy. My skin feels radiant, moistened and super soft and also smells lovely. I will recommend this cream for all skin types and ages.
– Dorothy

I love the classy gold packaging! It’s luxuriously creamy and it’s surprisingly light which makes it glide on smoothly when you put it on your face! The gold micro-particles makes your skin glow instantly! It has an instant brightening effect and makes my skin look fairer instantly upon application!
