What is #5 Repair - Night Moisturizer?
#5 Repair - Night Moisturizer is a nutrient-rich formula that repairs, restores and conditions your skin while you sleep to make it stronger and fitter. This lightweight moisturizer combines science and nature to create a LoMo™ Night Treatment of unrivalled purity and potency.
#5 Repair - Night Moisturizer is packed full of antioxidants and nutrients that hydrate your skin, exfoliate and stimulate collagen production. Its impressive list of ingredients features bakuchiol - a powerful retinol alternative that improves skin elasticity, evens skin tone, boosts radiance, and reduces wrinkles.*
Smooth streak. Incandescent glow.
If you want to use the most powerful skincare available, it makes sense then to use one containing the most powerful natural antioxidant known. #5 Repair - Night Moisturizer features New Zealand Red Algae, a super powerful antioxidant that protects cells from oxidation and reduces sun damage, wrinkles, age spots and freckles.
#5 Repair - Night Moisturizer has been developed using cold processed ingredients that are nontoxic and cruelty free. No ingredient has been heated at any stage of production. This is achieved by creating an emulsion without the traditional assistance of heat. A combination of cold processing and judicious ingredient selection means Ao Skincare can produce products that are raw.
Ao Skincare also uses sustainable and eco-friendly packaging and responsible manufacturing practices.
#5 Repair - Night Moisturizer features an impressive list of ingredients including potent botanicals that are found only in New Zealand, which is why Ao Skincare is unlike any other skin care in the world.
One of the key ingredients used in this formula is bakuchiol, an antioxidant derived from the Babchi plant. Studies have shown it to mimic many of the skincare effects of retinol without the sun sensitivity or skin irritation that some people encounter when using retinol products.*
#5 Repair - Night Moisturizer also features pichia resveratrol ferment, which is extracted using a yeast (pichia pastoris), with the result being a very small molecule that readily penetrates the skin to reduce inflammation and enhance collagen production.*
Other key ingredients in this formulation include:
- Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C): Vitamin C has powerful antioxidant activity that assists in promoting the skin’s natural condition and balance.
- Peptides and Phenyl t-Butylnitrone (spin trap): These diverse molecules perform multiple functions important for optimum skin health.
- New Zealand Red Algae: A powerful antioxidant that is 6000x STRONGER THAN VITAMIN C.
- Lactic Acid or Alpha Hydroxy Acid is an ingredient that promotes skin turnover (exfoliation) and improves skin texture.
- Manuka honey: A nourishing antimicrobial unique to New Zealand skin care products.
- Liquorice root and bisabolol: A chamomile derivative with great anti-inflammatory properties.
- NO parabens, sulphates, PEGS,TEA,DEA, mineral oils, petrochemicals and artificial fragrance.
Who is it for?
This night treatment is suitable for all types of skin. #5 Repair - Night Moisturizer is a great option for sensitive skin as it offers the benefits of retinol without its side effects. It has minimal fragrance and shouldn’t be a problem for people with sensitivities.
This night treatment is particularly powerful if you are concerned about fighting dryness, fine lines and sagging, as it stands out for its moisturising and anti-aging capabilities.
How to use it
Apply two pumps of the cream to your face and neck every day, following a serum. This amount should be sufficient as the cream absorbs quickly and leaves no residue.
#5 Repair - Night Moisturizer comes in an airless pump for sanitation and to preserve the potency of the ingredients. To get the maximum benefits from this night treatment, Dr Gray recommends pairing it with the #1 Prepare Cleanser, #2 Fortify Day and #3 Protect SPF30. Find out more about these products here.
What to expect
In terms of hydration, #5 Repair - Night Moisturizer is as good as many other products at a similar price point. What’s different and makes this a standout product is that it combines high quality moisturizing with anti-inflammatory properties and the retinol-mimicking bakuchiol.*
“What’s different and makes this a standout product is that it combines high quality moisturising with anti-inflammatory properties and the retinol-mimicking bakuchiol. After thirty days of use, I would say there is some softening of the lines around my eyes and on my forehead, in addition to improved skin tone.”
