MY STORY: this is a night cream for those of us who wake up with a greasy residue & an oily T-zone. I’ve long been searching for a night cream that moisturises without exacerbating my oiliness.
The formula is a light cream gel, it absorbs quickly and is pleasant to use. Despite the potentially irritating absorbent ingredients of denatured alcohol, sodium polyacrylate, silica & perlite, I have never had any adverse reaction.
More sensitive/dry skins may find this isn’t moisturising enough, in which case this can be used as a serum. I use this over a retinol overnight. The anti blemish ingredients are effective and my skin is definitely less oily & more balanced in the mornings.
AIM: Normaderm Night Detox targets the skin overnight by helping to control the production of sebum while purifying the skin.

Salicylic acid + capryloyl salicylic acid : beta hydroxyl acids which are lipid soluble. Keratolytic, antimicrobial & anti-inflammatory properties.
Eperua Falcata Bark Extract & Zea Mays starch: antinflammatories + antioxidant.
Tocopheryl aceatate: known as man-made vitamin E to moisturise.
Glyceryl stearate: protective layer to lock in moisture.
PROS: oil free, suitable for sensitive skin. Moisturises whilst preventing acne. Hypoallergenic. Non comedogenic.
