I recently picked up a night cream from Balea. I was looking for an intensely hydrating cream and picked up Balea Rich Night Cream. Read on to know more about it.
Price and Quantity: $2.50 for 50 ml
Balea Rich night cream helps your skin to soothe and supports their nightly regeneration process.
The care formula with:
– precious almond oil reduces stressful feelings due to its re-greasing properties and ensures a soft, soft skin.
– Avocadin (R) maintains the skin intensely and helps to reduce redness of the skin as well as counteract skin irritation.
– Provitamin B5 provides intensive moisture and protects the skin from drying out.

My Experience with Balea Rich Night Cream:
Balea Rich Night Cream comes in a cardboard packaging. There is a whole lot of information available on the box. Once you open it, there is the night cream tube. The tube has a blue flip cap which closes with a click and there is no chance of leakage.
The cap can be a bit too tight at the start but loosens up over the time. The cream is white in color and has a bit of thick and firm consistency. It has a strong smell but the smell is pleasant and stays for a short duration.
Even though the cream is rich, it gets quickly absorbed by the skin. It leaves a thin film residue behind that gets absorbed by the skin within 2-3 minutes. The skin feels nourished and moisturized. The cream adds softness, smoothness and radiance to the skin.
The product doesn’t cause any breakouts on combination or dry skin. However, the product is too intense for oily skin. The product doesn’t cause any irritation or redness. The presence of almond oil does add benefits to the skin over time. I have noticed that my skin is well toned and even dryness has reduced.
My skin usually peels near my mouth and nose area. I hardly see any dryness at any time of the day ever since I have started using this cream. Since the product provides intense nourishment, I can skip a serum/oil in between. The cream provides moisturization for more than 12 hours. Since the product is made for sensitive skin, care is taken to reduce any stinging or irritation.
A very little product is more than enough for neck and face. I think the product is little too nourishing and thick for the summer. It could be a better choice for the cooler months. The product doesn’t contain parabens but does contain xanthan gum. The product is a cheaper alternative to high-end creams and is worth a try.
So, summing up:
