Madara Time Miracle Total Renewal Night Cream
Posted on October 12 2020
A concentrated cocktail of active ingredients, a pleasant fragrance and an aesthetic flacon - the anti-ageing night cream from Mádara is convincing all along the line. Also the fast absorption through the skin shows the high-quality ingredients, which immediately penetrate the lower skin layers and work there. A pleasantly moisturized skin feeling remains and indeed the impression of a smoother complexion with less pronounced lines.
GREEN AND FRAGRANT: SPRING IN THE JAR
The first time I used this cream I thought "ui....she's green". You don't necessarily expect this from a cream that you apply to your facial skin. Beige-coloured, rosé or even, as the name says, cream-coloured. I could imagine that the pale green colour is supposed to symbolise the main component of the cream and thus also its superstar, birch water. As I found out by studying the INCIs, the green colour is caused by the iron oxide contained in the cream. Whatever. The second sensory impression the first time around was "it smells good! A very delicate, spring-like scent played around my nose. As if I had just entered a newly blossoming young forest with spring flowers. Unfortunately they reduced this scent with "improved formula" strongly. There is nothing left of it. I think that's a pity indeed. I have actually always looked forward to the fragrance in the evening. Well, against progress, if it is one, one should not stand up, shouldn't one!
MÁDARA, THE LATVIAN WITH ROUGH ROOTS
Mádara is a quite young company, which was founded in 2006 by four young women in Latvia. According to their own statements, the philosophy is based on the fact that the active ingredients work in deeper skin layers and not only on the skin surface. In addition, the company aims to convey a good feeling in terms of well-being, self-esteem, value awareness and ecological footprint. They claim to do this through truly effective ingredients, honest statements, environmentally friendly packaging, care, passion and respect. Because a beaming heart leads to beaming skin, says Mádara. When developing their products, they rely on the ancient knowledge passed down through generations to preserve and protect health and life through the forces of nature. In particular, they refer to the harsh and sometimes difficult Nordic living conditions for flora, fauna and mankind, under which even more intensive active ingredients were needed to ensure survival. The products therefore contain the forces of nature, which are still being researched under the scrutiny of medical experts and in the light of science. In this way, the respective product creations and their effects are also scientifically validated.
VISIBLE RESULTS AND A TRULY PLEASANT SKIN FEELING
Mádara is the result of a mini in vitro study over four weeks with 35 participants aged 29 to 70. According to the study, 94% of the participants confirmed a more radiant, smoother and better moisturized skin after only one night. After four weeks, 85% of the participants reported improved collagen synthesis and 88% reduced lines and wrinkles. 100% confirmed improved skin hydration and stimulated skin regeneration after four weeks.
The cream is relatively light and is absorbed very quickly. In order to determine whether lines and wrinkles are really reduced, I think I would need other instruments. I can't really see fewer wrinkles, but I honestly don't expect this from a cream alone. For this I would have to pay much more attention to water consumption, more sleep and less sugar. But all three are on my long-term plan... The lines really do appear reduced the next morning. Applying the cream gives me a really nice feeling at the end of the day. The skin feels moisturized and well nourished. The next morning I don't have a greasy film on my skin but just a relaxed feeling. The smell is still pleasant after the changed formulation, but much more subtle and less flowery. The active ingredients are really great. A lot of power from nature combines with the main ingredient, birch water. This is said to have a proven reducing effect on all the essential signs of visible aging. The active ingredients are neither diluted with water as the main component nor are they preserved by alcohol in the first place. Of course, downstream there are also ingredients that sometimes (but never exclusively) serve as preservatives, such as Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides and Sodium Anisate. However, this is a very well tolerated variant for me, as they also have caring properties. Jojoba oil, which also moisturizes the skin and improves the absorption of active ingredients, is in second place after birch water.
Conclusion: I love this night cream. The jar is simple and cool in design. I would like a jar made of glass instead of plastic even better but here I turn a blind eye. The scent is pleasant and very discreet, even though I liked it better before. The consistency is light-footed and absorbs very quickly. I have bought and used it repeatedly and will certainly use it again!
