The key ingredient in Overnight Sensation is organic rose geranium oil. This restores the skin's natural balance & helps to boost sluggish skin circulation. It gives the cream the most beautiful rose scent which reminds me of Turkish Delight. It also features green tea & chamomile to naturally reduce any inflammation. The moisturising element comes from a blend of natural glycerine, shea butter, cocoa seed butter, jojoba seed oil, grapeseed oil & vitamin E. The cream itself is fairly thick & rich. It feels very comforting on the skin & eliminates any dryness. It immediately makes my skin feel softer & more hydrated. It does leave a bit of residue on the surface of my skin so it does take a while to sink in properly. Every last drop gets absorbed by the time I've woken up though and then my skin is left looking & feeling amazing. I get a bit nervous about switching moisturisers in case it breaks me out but my skin has been loving it. It definitely lives up to it's promise of making your skin look healthier in the morning which is why I feel it is comparable to Night-A-Mins. It's not quite as moisturising by itself because it doesn't really melt into your skin in the same way but that is easily corrected.
As with all my night creams I prefer to mix this with a facial oil to boost it's hydrating & healing properties. Things like Trilogy Rosehip Oil or Balance Me Radiance Face Oil work really nicely with it. Mixed with a face oil, you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between Night-A-Mins & Overnight Sensation. An oil adds that melty texture Overnight Sensation lacks on it's own. The main giveaway would be the scent. Personally I still favour Night-A-Mins but for the price this Organic Surge night cream is pretty fantastic.
