The revelation that is Robin McGraw Revelation Hydra Qwench Moisturizing Night Cream

When Makeup Wars chose Night Creams as our topic of the week I wanted to get behind the use of a night cream rather than just a moisturizer. I’m sharing my most recent favorite rather than going through a litany of all I’ve used. But first, why do we need a night cream?

  1. You can use a regular moisturizer but I’d avoid the ones with sunscreen for overnight.
  2. Your skin is generally more ready to absorb active ingredients at night when you’re at rest.
  3. Your skin has more power to regenerate at night when you are sleeping.
  4. Using a night cream helps keep your face better nourished as well as helping it repair damaged cells.
  5. Many areas are boosted with a night cream: collagen, elasticity, better blood circulation, and cell renewal.

Dermatologists and aestheticians usually recommend that you choose a fragrance free product and nothing that is too thick as it can clog pores. I used to think that a thicker cream was the best for night use but I find that my skin responds better to one that isn’t too thick as those often make me break out.

Now that I’ve done my lecture the product in my bathroom for the last several weeks is Robin McGraw Revelation Hydra Qwench Moisturizing Night Cream. Actually I’ve been using the 4 Robin McGraw Revelation products I was sent but concentrating today on the Hydra Qwench.

Robin McGraw Revelation Hydra Qwencch Moisturizing Night Cream

The most interesting thing about me is that I never watched the Dr. Phil show. I wasn’t home from teaching when it was on plus I’m not much of a TV watcher. I’d seen him on Oprah and I’d seen her occasionally but Robin McGraw wasn’t much on my radar. When I first learned that she had her own line I sort of wrote it off. But when asked to test the line I was eager to find out more about it. And I’m really glad I did.

Robin McGraw Revelation Hydra Qwench checks off most of the list I’m looking for. First and foremost is that it’s not fragranced. I do notice a tiny bit of fragrance if I stick my nose in it but once on my face nada, nothing, nil. Second is that the texture is perfect for my liking. It’s not too rich and I don’t have any clogged pores from it. It works for all skin types and it’s well priced at $42. Plus with your first order from Robin McGraw Revelation you can get 25% off while any time you order you get free shipping.

Hydra Qwench Moisturizing Night Cream

I love the delivery system since I get no waste. You push down the top and up comes the night cream. It’s never too much which is excellent since you don’t need to glop up your skin. A thin layer that absorbs well is the perfect amount. Hydra Qwench is meant to

  • Diminish the appearance of sagging skin
  • naturally hydrate and moisturize
  • improve the look of dull, tired skin

    Hydra Qwench Moisturizing Night Cream

    Squalane

    A natural plant ingredient that resembles our own skin, allowing it to penetrate easily and increase moisture. Squalane is an anti-oxidant that feeds skin cells to promote cell growth, leaving the skin smooth and silky soft.

    Hyaluronic Acid

    As we age, our skin’s collagen decreases and wrinkles become more visible. Hyaluronic Acid helps promote skin’s natural collagen levels, making skin visibly plumper and firmer.

    Caprylic Acid

    A natural fatty acid found in coconut oil. Because of it’s antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, it is used to help fight acne and many skin conditions.

    Ingredients:

    Water/Aqua/Eau, Squalane, Hyaluronic Acid, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Teprenone, Polyisobutene, Polysorbate 20, Xylitylglucoside, Anhydroxylitol, Xylitol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Polyacrylate-13, Phenoxyethanol.

  • A formula that’s 100% free from harmful chemicals, dyes, parabens, SLS, mineral oil, and animal testing.

I’ll be sharing the other 3 products I have from the line later but Hydra Qwench Moisturizing Night Cream is my favorite out of 4 excellent products. Even if Robin McGraw Revelation wasn’t on your radar before now that it is I think you’d love it as much as I do. —  Marcia

  4. Susan Gillam says:

    I need a good night cream. I have horrible dry skin.

  5. I love this delivery system as well. I think I should be using a night cream too.

  6. For night cream suggestions mentioned above are nice. Such beauty product should be packed carefully packed. The famous name is Customboxeszone.

  7. She has great products!

  8. Pamela Moore says:

    This Night Cream looks awesome. The texture looks just right. Not to thick and not to thin. Thank you for this review. I’m always so skeptical about creams until I read a really good review from someone who’s actually tried it. Love the ingredients list sounds perfect. I’ll have to give this one a try. I always thought a heavy cream at night would be better too.

  9. I like Mizon Good Night White sleeping mask. Over my normal moisturiser it’s a great overnight treat.

  10. I dig the packaging! I love when they take the thinking out of it and provide you with a “serving size.” 🙂

  11. Ooh this sounds great! I have a night creme that I bought on a whim but I have to remember to use it. For some reason I thought I could use it nightly but the instructions say to use it more like 2-3 times a week. Oops…

  12. One of my Canadian blogger friends loves skincare from Robin McGraw. I think it’s on her “best of” list too. One of these days, I need to try it.

  13. Ehmkay Nails says:

    I haven’t heard of this brand but I like the ingredients in this creme!

  14. Wait, so this jar looking packaging actually has a pump dispenser?? That’s amazing! I love pumps for my face products, but I feel like so many creams come in jars. Thanks for your review!

  15. My Nail Polish Obsession says:

    Sounds like a nice product. I like that it has a pump dispenser.

  16. I’ve never heard of this brand but that style of packaging for skincare products is my current fave! So easy to use and clean! 🙂

  17. Oh the formula looks lovely! Light and fast-absorbing, just the way I like it!

  18. 25 Sweetpeas says:

    The texture does look really nice!

  19. Gentle products are the way to go. I slowly started shifting toward skincare designed for sensitive skin, and my face is looking better than ever.

  20. I’ve never heard of this brand, but I absolutely love that dispenser method — I wish more brands would use it instead of an open jar!

  21. Robin McGraw looks amazing, so if she uses her products to look the way she does, sign me up! I actually had no idea she had a line, and I’ll have to check it out, including this cream!

  22. I like that it has a very short ingredients list and two of my favorite hydrating ingredients: hyaluronic acid and squalane!

  23. Madhubani says:

    I received a Georgia gift box once from the house of Robin McGraw. It had amazing products and liked most of them. So seeing your review, I am already thinking of giving this is a try. Love the delivery system, so intriguing.

  24. I’ve tried this as well, it’s a nice gentle and super hydrating cream.
