Body Recipe's Corrective Night Cream

 I never used a night cream before. What I use every morning is same with what I use at night. Honestly, I am not that 'interested' or uber serious on skin care. I only do the basics- Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing and if I'm in the mood, I use facial scrub and/or facial mask once a week. I don't care about sunblocks, night cream, eye cream and others though I heard about them.

Okay, before I start with my BR Corrective Night Cream Review, let me share this with you guys.

Reasons why you need to use a night cream 

1.  A night treatment really helps maintain our skin's moisture to prevent dehydration and premature wrinkling.

2. Using a night cream can actually help your skin recover faster. It stimulate cell renewal and restore elasticity.

3. Night creams contain a higher concentration of antioxidants and whitening ingredients than day cream. 

Based on the statements above, I can say that we really need to use a night cream, but we have to be careful in choosing what kind/brand of Night cream we will use. 

  • In choosing a night cream, you must consider your skin type. If you have oily skin opt for a hydrating but oil-free formula night cream and if you have dry skin, go for richer creams. Lastly, for those who have sensitive skin, choose a cream with  hypoallergenic formula.
  • You also have to consider your age. If you are in your 20's, use a light but moisturizing night cream to prevent you from breakouts and blemishes. For those who are on their 30's go for night creams with anti-ageing and anti-sagging ingredients and for 40 and above, your skin becomes dry and may suffer from breakouts so look for a night cream that contain soy, wheat germ, wheat protein and/or honey to retain water. Meanwhile, Shea Butter and Apricot Kernel Oil can offer higher moisturizing effect. 

I am on my early 20's (22) and have a dry skin, I need to use a richer night cream to prevent blemishes, breakouts and most of all, to moisturize. I am on my search for a good night cream when I stumble upon this beauty blog (forgot the URL ,sorry). The blogger made a review about this Night Cream from HBC. I read the article and it gave me a feeling of "Hey, I wanna try this product".  After that day, I immediately went to HBC near us and look for this night cream. It's good to see that they never let a product get out-of-stock. 

Body Recipe Milk with Goat's Milk Corrective Night Cream

 Body Recipe Milk+ Corrective Night Cream helps restore moisture
to skin and it helps lighten dark spots and blemishes.

The first time I applied the product, I had this tingling sensation that made me panicked for a few minutes. I thought that  it maybe a skin reaction or something. I looked at the ingredients expecting to see menthol, but I found none. Yes, I get a bit nervous 'coz I am afraid it might lead to something really undesirable. However, I continue using the product until now and I never had that tingling sensation again. :)


  • Not heavy when applied.
  • Lightens dark spots (my major concern)
  • It lessen my blemishes
  • Moisturizes
  • Improves skin tone
  • Cheaper than other cream. It costs P78.00 only

  • None so far
Would I recommend it? Definitely!

Will I keep using the product? Yes! It's on my Skin Care List now :)

Rate it (5 Highest - 1 lowest): 5!


  1. Thanks for sharing your review on the corrective night cream! I'm wondering where I can get a hold of this because I too have dry skin that really sensitive. The fact that this lightens dark spots is a major plus and that's exactly what I'm looking for as well!

    Anyways, thank you for sharing that again and because you have great reviews, I have decided to follow you as well which I hope you don't mind :) Please feel free to stop by my blog and do the same... Have a wonderful day!


    1. Jen,

      Thanks for dropping by! I'm grateful that you liked my blog, I visited your blog and I liked it
      too:) With regards to the night cream, I think only HBC distributes @bodyrecipe and I'm not sure
      if they do have Online Store. Vsit their site or their FB page if you have time. Their products are very affordable yet effective.

      Hugs & kisses,

  2. I am like you...never ever thought of a night cream...but with age knocking at the door I think I got to take this more seriously.

  3. I'm glad you found my post interesting and helpful .  

  4. Way cool! Some very valid points! I appreciate you writing this article plus the rest of the site is also good.


Enjoy reading & keep on blogging!
