ooh la la! not a one night stand is a sultry little number that'll make you forget all about the other night creams.

if sea buckthorn sounds like a village straight from Games of Thrones to you or a mysterious creature from the sea, cousin of the loch ness monster, I need you to pay attention.

buckthorn is like the new açai berry, but so much better. this berry contains over 190 nutrients and phytonutrients, and an incredible concentration of anti-aging vitamin C, 12 times higher than that of an orange. impressive sh*t people.

it helps your skin retain moisture, repair itself from scarring, sun damage, and inflammation (think acne, rosacea or eczema). it also boosts your collagen production and improves your skin’s structure, appearance and tone.

just like us, buckthorn means business and tackles all the things that fall high on our spectrum of skincare requisites while you’re sleeping.

oh, almost forgot! we also added AHAs, a group of plant-derived acids to remove dead cells while you sleep. and passion seed oil to heal your skin and soothe any inflammation overnight. overtime, say boy bye to blackheads, dilated pores and bumpy texture.

repeat after me:

+ renews & repairs
+ lightens scarring & hyperpigmentation
+ evens tone and tightens pores
+ reduces blackheads
+ restores moisture and radiance

what more could you ask for while you sleep?

+ pregnancy-safe

smooth a dime-sized amount of cream into cleansed skin until it's fully absorbed. you can use it on its own or with any of your fave face oils or serums.

texture/ thicker than day moisturisers but melts into the skin

finish/ soft, dry-touch finish

scent/ smells like you just landed in an episode of Bridgerton, running away from your one night stand. a soft floral note with a fruity nuance of peach (no artificial fragrance or perfume added)

ISO 22716:2007 Good Manufacturing Practices | EU & FDA Standards

all ingredients are sustainably and ethically sourced, organic when possible. compounded in the UK.

disclaimer/ this product is not intended for oral use. I know it smells and feels great but not to be confused with mango yogurt (the reviews are alarming!).

switched the natural preservative to one without scent. working with plant-based ingredients can be challenging to make a potent but smell friendly product.

1. mum’s right: oil-to-milk cleanser with hemp & borage oil
2. glow the f*ck up - plumping, soothing, pore shrinking toner
3. basic b*tch - 3-in-1 natural alternative for retinol, vitamin C and hyaluronic
4. not a one night stand - buckthorn + AHA regenerative night cream

+ remove the lid from the jar.
+ rinse and wipe out the inside of the jar.
+ toss the jar and the lid (separately) in the recycling bin

you can also use the jar to store remnants (earrings or rings) from your one night stand or on your night stand. ok maybe I took the pun too far, let’s see if my boss finds out.

Phenomenal very good value and excellent ingredients

This cream is exceptional, extremely hydrating. It takes a couple of minutes to sink in but when it does it is very lightweight. I wake up with super smooth and soft skin. Also great that it has added AHA. I usually add a bit of the super serum on top. I also use this in the day sometimes and it works well under makeup. There is a light scent which is gorgeous but all natural. This is an amazing cream with fantastic ingredients and I will definitely repurchase. Lovely glass packaging, but would also be great in a bottle with pump

Smells lush

I’ve very very very dry skin. Maybe menopause or I just don’t drink enough water. This cream soaks into my skin sooooo quick - maybe too quickly as I think it’ll be gone in a week! But I have had compliments on my skin. I use in conjunction with the face oil.

Can’t live without …

I’m no teen- actually but I have made one.. 👶 but my skin seems to think it can behave like one.. 🤦🏼‍♀️high maintenance -which I don’t have time for - delights in showing off the day after the night before -skin of shame & even a lake of water, early nights & fresh food & veg gets it in a more since having 🙌discovered The made by co. - a sign from God.. I would properly spin off into a blind panic if they were to cease…. Which they won’t as surely world domination is around the corner?! The snappy names aside -the perfect blue bottles -they really do do 🤭what they say on the tin.. so I’m a bad b*t*h who has glown the muck up -listens to her mother & gets that it’s not a drill … the last one having to bulk buy until the genius of subscription - to avoid any under lap- a skin saver ! I’ve tried many many others (during the pandemic when stocks were low) and nope .. DO NOT MISS OUT ANY OPPORTUNITY -you’re welcome .. you will be .. nurture and still effective skin zap - feels like it was all made for me! But you can try some too - best way in is to get a set -the glow up spray is magic -lasts & lasts - & the drill-not is 100% for all normal people -if you’ve never had the fear of the appearance of a lump or bump to head off - be gone … to their other sets .. 😃

Being kind...

After decades of trend/ fad following I decided in my fifties to cut right back on the unnecessary ingredients I put on my skin.I've eaten healthy for decades but still continued to look for the elixir of youth! There isn't one...I knew that really...but I like trying products and have staples in my regime I have been loyal to for over 30 years. I have recently been using the Not a one night stand cream and am on my 3rd bottle of super serum.I like the ingredients, the texture, the smell and the colour! So far so good and I'm not missing my old 'luxury ' products.I like the ethos of the company too and the older I get the more particular I am about where my cash is going!

This is honestly one of the best reviews we ever received, it makes our hearts full - thank you so so much!

Amazing product

My daughter made me aware of the fantastic miracle oil. She has oily skin that has improved miraculously. I have mature skin and after 2 weeks using this product I can notice a big improvement. I don’t know how it’s possible, but using the same oil has improved both of our skin. That’s a miracle.
