Newly Launched Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum


As we know, skin aging is inevitable. There are 2 ways in which our skin age – intrinsic and extrinsic aging. Intrinsic aging (or chronological aging) is a natural aging process that causes the skin to age naturally. Extrinsic aging, on the other hand, is caused by external factors (which usually can be controlled by a person) such as smoking, drinking, stress, lack of sleep, pollution and sun exposure.

Therefore the importance of a good night’s sleep can never be unstated as it not only affects our body but also our skin too. It is during sleep that the body and skin does the most repair and healing.

To reduce the effect of aging, Dermalogica researched and developed a new treatment for mature skin – Overnight Repair Serum – designed to firm the skin and restore its capacity to maintain suppleness and moisture.

A few weeks ago, I’ve attended a private event to preview this Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum at Group Therapy @ Duxton Road.

Overnight Repair Serum is a new addition to its Age Smart (anti-aging) range.

Overnight Repair Serum is enriched with Argan Oil, Brown Seaweed and botanical oils to help fight signs of aging, while you sleep.


Overnight Repair Serum – S$138 / 15ml

Designed to be applied to freshly cleansed skin before retiring to bed, the Overnight Repair Serum restores the integrity of skin by fighting multiple signs of aging which includes dull-looking skin, broken capillaries and aged-related collagen loss. It increases luminosity while minimizing fine lines, dryness, and loss of elasticity.

Protecting, maintaining and stimulating collagen in the skin are claimed to be the primary benefits of this anti-aging serum. One of it’s active key ingredient, Argan Oil, is claimed to help shields the lipid barrier, while inhibiting the production of enzymes which break down collagen and the underlying structure of skin tissue. In addition to Argan Oil, Vitamin E and essential fatty acids help restore a weakened barrier layer, lock in moisture and increase elasticity. Brown Seaweed also fights free radicals which erode collagen resiliency. Rose Hip Seed Oil helps minimize discoloration while helping to boost cell renewal.

The Overnight Repair Serum is also formulated with Hyaluronic Acid and active peptide, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38, to accelerate production of collagen. I was a little disappointed when I found out that this night serum also contains a handful of botanical oils such as Jasmine, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Rosemary, Cinnamon and Neroli that may irritant skin, although these aromatic botanical oils are often used to help soothe, moisture and heal the skin. The formulation for this nighttime serum using fragrant botanical oils is very much similar to Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate.

This nighttime treatment has this light silky fluid texture that glides easily and absorbs into the skin rather quickly. Upon full absorption, my skin feels soft and smooth and it doesn’t feel greasy at all. I actually like the aromatic natural fragrance scent which is very soothing.

After cleansing, press 4 to 6 drops of Overnight Repair Serum directly onto the skin and smooth outward with light finger strokes. Gently press on the acupoints stated above that help relieve headaches and sinus pressure, improve eye clarity, calm the mind and rejuvenate the face and tone facial muscles.

Upon the event, I was pleased to receive a full-size Overnight Repair Serum.

    Hi Hooting Post,

    I’ve yet to try the product. I may likely give it a miss cos it contains a couple of botanical oils that I’m afraid may irritate my sensitive skin. :-)

    Hi Jodie,

    I don’t think neutrogena pore refining cream is available in Singapore. I’m not too sure about the oil free acne stress control 3-in-1 hydrating acne treatment though.

Got something to say? Go for it!
