Product Review: Nars Skin Potent EFA Cream

About a month ago, Nars released a new, highly concentrated, skin-restoring face moisturizer called Lipid Support Potent EFA Cream ($70 for 1.7 oz). This thick, lightly scented lotion is formulated with lipids (Omega-3 fatty acids and ceramides), acai and hyaluronic acid to replenish your skin and to create a more hydrated texture. In turn, this helps aid in skin-cell regeneration and decrease wrinkles and create an overall more supple appearance.

Now, I don't know if you're aware of this, but some ingredients can break down when exposed to the air — and that means your skin isn't getting all of the ingredients it should. I like this container aesthetically, but I love how the airtight seal protects the cream's active ingredients from overexposure to sunlight, germs, and oxygen.

I really like the cream, especially for nighttime, but the one drawback is that has a slightly heavy and greasy texture. It claims to be suitable for all skin types, but due to its intensely hydrating formula, I would suggest it for those with dry skin.

I checked it out and the scent is only from essential oils - it says it doesn't have chemical scent (I looked on the ingredients too). I have really dry skin so I tried it and the night serum that goes with it. I have to say my skin felt like butter the next day - not sure if it was the cream or the serum. I'm even using the serum during the day cuz i swear it brings a real nice color to my skin..? and my lips are so supple and I always have chapped lips!!

I love Nars makeup!! Haven't used the skincare too much though, because I use BoostSkincare which has proven to be the best for the buck. Try NARS Dolce Vita lipstick, its the bomb. I also bought all the NARS lipstains, I don't know what possessed me to buy all of them, but they're just a bit weird looking. The Boost SKincare products are a set of three products, which since I've started using them, I have no acne and my skin glows like when I use my Retin A

I love the way that bottle looks, it's so classy looking. I have really dry skin so I'd be willing to try this out.

Maybe in the winter my skin could handle this, when it's really dry...

the ingredients sound great but the heavy and greasy won't work. I've already had to get rid of two night creams that just made me break out because of their consistency.

I have to agree that he does have a good colour line, but the "heavy... greasy" is scaring me away. I don't think I will be trying out this product.

I have a moisturizer by Mark that has the same type of packaging. I love the fact that i'm not constantly sticking my fingers in it. I didn't know about the air thing though. I'll pass on this since I don't like really thick, greasy creams. I have combo skin.

Hm...I like his colour line a lot, always have, but not sure how I feel about skincare..it sounds promising since I love really rich things in the winter, and the price is less than a lot of the REN products I like. If the scent is added though..it usually turns me off, unless its natural, like as a product of the oils used..any specifics on the scent?
