What Is Night Recovery Moisture Complex?
Welcome to our review of Night Recovery Moisture Complex, a night-time, amino-acid peptide serum made by Life Line Stem Cell Skin Care. It’s main stated aim is to reduce lines and wrinkles in your sleep so you wake up with firmer, more radiant skin. It also creates a hydrated environment in which new skin cells can replace old ones, and healthy cellular metabolism is supported. Let’s start by examining the ingredients.
The featured ingredients are:
- peptides from human stem cells
- green tea extract
- safflower seed oil
Safflower contains linoleic acid, which helps form a moisture barrier that softens and smooths skin. The peptides stimulate the natural production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which the body needs to repair cells, while green tea is a natural antioxidant. The manufacturer claims to use patented extracts from from non-embryonic human stem cells, but does not name these patents (usually, manufacturers are proud to do so because of the lengths you have to go to get one clinically and scientifically approved).
By contrast, we have come across a unique patent that rather than use human stem cells (this is rather off-putting), uses plant ones. PhytoCellTec Alp Rose is based on the stem cells of alpine rose leaves. It promotes the vitality and longevity of skin stem cells, strengthens the skin barrier, and provides better protection to the skin against climate-induced stress. This is one of 6 patents we’ve found in other leading products (based on the science and clinical studies behind the ingredients), but there is no equivalent here. The manufacturer offers no clinical studies based on its claimed patented extracts, which is strange. Nor do vital, dermatologically researched ingredients such as wheat germ extract with its superior benefits appear, not to mention the likes of Electric Daisy and more. It leaves efficacy in doubt. It’s not surprising the manufacturer has issued a disclaimer that it doesn’t guarantee specific results.
How To Use
Dispense 2 pumps and apply to clean skin, spreading it evenly over face. Repeat every evening. These are the basic instructions provided but they are not specific enough. Should you apply a moisturizer afterward? Should you tone as well as wash before? Should you simply spread it over your face or massage it in? We don’t know because it is not disclosed but exact usage instructions matter as they affect performance.
What Is The Cost?
A one-ounce bottle will cost you $125. Despite the product being so expensive, there are no discounts for buying more than one, or even 2. Instead, you are given a 20% discount for subscribing. We caution against subscriptions because too many consumers continue to have their fingers burnt when they cannot cancel the subscription or even have amounts deducted without the product arriving.
Provided you have bought your item directly from the manufacturer and not a third party, you’ll receive a 30-day return or exchange. Given the high price, we feel that guarantee should be more robust. Leading manufacturers with less expensive products are offering 60-day and upward guarantees.
Our Final Review Of Night Recovery Moisture Complex
The manufacturer claims to use patented stem cell and micro-technology involving human stem cells. It is clear that a scientific depth lies behind the formula. Yet, for all the science speak, the manufacturer cannot name its patents, provide third-party testing to verify the presence of these patents and vouch for their efficacy or provide basic GMP certification for that matter. This raises concerns as well as doubts as not only to what is in the formula, but how well it works in reality. While there are good reviews on the product website, they are no from verified purchasers and seem contrived. Non-patented superior ingredients we could have expected to see such as Electric Daisy and wheat germ extract are also missing. Our concerns about efficacy given all these issues and the expensive retail price were only intensified by the manufacturer’s disclaimer that it does not guarantee any of the specific results it expressly claims. Given these doubts, we’d encourage you to look for best-in-class patented ingredient night serums (we found one with six approved ones, representing solid value) from manufacturers who can tell you what the patents are called, have had third-party testing done and offer you a minimum of a 60-day guarantee.
