I am so in love with Devita’s solar body block SPF30+ so when I spotted this new night-time moisturizer by Devita in my local health food store, I decided to give it a try. I picked it up with high hopes and now that I have used it for about a month, I can honestly say that it doesn’t disappoint at all!

My top needs when it comes to a good night-time moisturizer are:
- All-natural with a healthy dose of anti-aging ingredients
- Lightweight, non-greasy texture (preferably without a shiny finish)
- Moisturizing enough for my dry skin
- Gentle, fragrance-free formula so that it can also be used as an eye-cream
- No jar packaging
- Free of any potential irritating ingredients
- Reasonably priced
So, does Devita Evening Rich Nutritional Moisturizer meets all my requirements? YES! It’s a fantastic moisturizer with all the above characteristics. Although it’s been described as a rich moisturizer, I think it should work well even for oily skin types (especially in winter season) because it leaves a matte finish and never feels heavy/greasy on skin. This versatile nighttime moisturizer can also be used anytime during the day (only when indoors as it doesn’t have SPF) to help with extra thirsty skin.This paraben-free moisturizer is also very well-priced at $24.95 for a 2.5oz tube. Highly recommended!
