No7 Early Defence Night Cream

no7 early defence night cream review


Let’s think about the benefits of a night cream for a moment - there you are getting your beauty sleep, there your night cream is working away at keeping your skin looking smoother, younger, brighter and more youthful whilst you quite literally lay back and do nothing but catch some zzz’s. How could you not have a night cream in your routine?

The No7 Early Defence Night Cream (£19.50) has been the latest weapon in my skincare arsenal. Packed with lipopeptides for their antibacterial properties, and vital vitamin A to help reduce the early appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, this is a gem of a product for anyone like me still clinging hopelessly onto their twenties like a deflating life raft.

The cream itself has a pretty thin, watery consistency that is quickly absorbed into freshly cleansed skin and dries without leaving any residue or grease. Even after a full night of tossing and turning my face is still pretty matte and oil free come morning. It’s ideal for when the weather is a little warmer or you're on a winter sun getaway as it’s so cooling and refreshing to the skin. The lighter formulae means I don’t have to worry about it clogging up my pores and causing breakouts, and being hypo-allergenic means when my skin decides to have a moment, this won’t irritate it further.

No7 prides themselves on their double defence technology - protecting and repairing your skin from environmental damage and pollution, something I’m keen to look more into since I live in the city centre. I don’t even want to think about all the bus fumes and tourist grime that’s burrowing into my pores!

Even when I have struggled to get my 8 hours sleep, No7 Early Defence Night Cream has ensured I wake up at least looking like I’ve got my beauty sleep. My skin feels smoother, and not only looks but feels more hydrated too. I’ve found it to be great for oily skin, but probably not moisturising enough for dryer skin. If your prefer a lighter night cream year round then this is ideal, but with winter coming, I’m starting to reach for thicker products in order to repair my weather beaten-like-eggs face. 

What’s your go-to night cream? Do you even use one?

Until next time,

  1. I need to get back into a skincare routine, it's all gone to pot since I moved here and I need to get a good night cream. I've been using the body shop's aloe version night cream which is actually really great, I find it protects spots and stops them getting any worse but when winter hits I'll probably need something more intensive! xx

    1. Aloe vera is AMAZING for spot prone skin, and brilliant for any skin with the weather getting colder and crappier! So it's a great choice! Their Vitamin E line is really good too, especially the cleanser!

  2. I think I NEED this, I love No7 foundations and I love night creams… So it makes sense for me to go and buy it on pay day… RIGHT?!

  5. I always didn't get a good and enough sleep, and honestly, I haven't have a night cream in my routine right now cos I stopped using any for a few months, and now I was thinking of looking for this product cos it might be good on my skin.. Well, let's see..!

    1. I couldn't be without a night cream! All those benefits whilst I catch some zzz's? It's a win win situation!

  6. This sounds like a gorgeous night cream, especially for the A/W time!
    I am currently just using a Nivea night cream, but in combination with Sweet almond oil for under the eyes and rosehip oil on my uneven skintone, it works pretty well though it can be abit of a chore before bedtime haha!

    1. I find Nivea too rich for my skin, it always leaves it feeling really greasy! I love how the No7 one leaves my face feeling smooth and matte. I try to keep my evening routine as simple as possible, I'm more inclined that way. Too much faff and I'll just crawl under the covers lol!

  7. This sounds like a lovely night cream - I really need to try more from No7 as I love their makeup, but I've only tried a couple of their skincare products so far xx
