Jessica loves all things creative in the world of entertainment, crafting, & cosmetics.

I have been purchasing high-end face serums, creams, lotions, and eye products (everything except cleanser) for a couple of years now. Entering my 30s, it gives me comfort to spend a little extra money and buy the best products I can find when I can afford to do so. Price is one thing, but the product has to hold up as well. That means I have been trying a lot of different things. It turns out that not every product is worth the extra cost. There are still so many great products at the drugstore, and I always have an open mind, which lead me to my latest find: Aveeno Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream.

I want to do makeup tutorials, and I wanted an inexpensive cream to apply after removing my makeup from filming a tutorial (or two or three a day) without using up my expensive creams at a faster rate. I knew that I wanted to purchase Aveeno Ultra-Calming night cream because of the claim that it is calming, nourishing, and gentle. Often after removing my makeup, no matter how gentle I am, my face looks a little irritated, and I wanted a good cream (rather than a lotion) for extra nourishment.

I now use this often at night when I feel my skin needs a little TLC. I have been so pleased with the results, I wanted to write a review!


You can pick this up anywhere that sells Aveeno products such as CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, other drugstores, Ulta, and Amazon. I bought mine at CVS for $18.99 and I probably had some coupons through the CVS app to bring the price down (I can’t remember). You can purchase it straight through Amazon using the link above.


Water, glycerin, C12-15 alkyl benzoate, cetearyl alcohol, dimethicone, arachidyl alcohol, avena sativa (oat) kernel flour, cetyl alcohol, phenyl trimethicone, cetearyl glucoside, behenyl alcohol, sodium polyacrylate, caprylyl glycol, ethylene/acrylic acid copolymer, panthenol, phenoxyethanol, polyacrylamide, arachidyl glucoside, C13-14 isoparaffin, chlorphenesin, chrysanthemum parthenium (feverfew) flower/leaf/stem juice, disodium EDTA, pentaerythrityl tetra-di-t-butyl hydroxyhydrocinnamate, laureth-7, pentylene glycol, ceramide NP.

What This Night Cream Claims to Do

This an ultra-calming, nourishing night cream that is fragrance-free. It is designed for sensitive skin. It will help soothe the appearance of irritated, red, and dry skin in just 1 week. It also claims to help restore the skin's protective moisture barrier overnight. It contains active naturals oat and calming feverfew, two of nature's most effective and clinically proven ingredients for sensitive skin This daily moisturizer leaves your sensitive skin feeling soothed and nourished to help reveal your natural beauty.

It doesn't claim to be an anti-aging/anti-wrinkle cream, so I wouldn't expect those results. This claims to simply moisturize skin that is prone to redness and irritation due to sensitivity.

Easily Stackable Packaging

It comes in a 1.7-ounce jar packaged in a cardboard box. It is a practical jar, nothing fancy, but I like it. It doesn't have "too much jar." What I mean by that is when a jar has an ounce or two of product, but it looks like it could easily hold twice that (see pictures below.) This jar is not like that. It also has a flat top. A lot of my Estee Lauder creams are slightly rounded on the top, making it hard to stack them in my medicine cabinet, so that's nice! I know a lot of people don't like to dip their fingers into a jar for sanitary reasons, but I personally don't mind it. I like the simple packaging of this.

I love my Estee Lauder creams but look at the difference in the size of the jar. They are both 1.7oz! EL has gorgeous packaging but comparing it to the Aveeno, it seems so wasteful and takes up more space. I love the simplicity of the Aveeno jar.

It says to smooth this cream over the entire face after cleansing. This is a night cream, but I know Aveeno also has a day lotion version of this with an SPF. I don't see why you couldn't use this in the day if you're not going to be outside. However, be aware that there is no SPF in this.

It is fragrance-free, which is nice. It is really creamy, and I don't find it greasy at all. It seems to sink right into my skin. I think it feels very luxurious and goes on very smooth. It is an off-white colored cream.

Uncolored, unscented cream.

The Verdict

This cream did exactly what it said it would do for me! What won me over is that I would apply this cream at night (it is a night cream) and when I woke up in the morning, my skin had no irritation or redness. Like I mentioned earlier, I use a lot of high-end creams but they’re all anti-aging creams, not calming anti-redness creams.

This one works as well as I would want it to. With anti-aging creams, you often need to give them a while to work and see results. With redness, results are very quick (overnight).

I will definitely buy this again because:

  • It’s inexpensive.
  • It does what it says it will do.
  • it nourishes and calms the skin.

I will still purchase and use my anti-aging creams but this is a nice variation a night or two a week. Highly recommended if you suffer from some redness from time to time and want a little TLC aside from your regular products. I may need to buy another jar by the time I actually get around to filming my videos!
