Anyone that knows me knows that I love trying out new products. It was actually one of the main reasons I decided to set up A Woman’s Confidence. So, I was super excited to try out the Nuit Polaire night cream as part of one of my Birchbox orders.
I’d never heard of the product before, but it’s supposed to nourish, refresh and regenerate your skin overnight. It’s described as having a smooth and rich texture that leaves a matte finish on the skin.
The description sounded great and I was intrigued by it, so I dived in.
What is Poolar?
Polaar’s history is based on a rich family saga whose origins are rooted in the snow-covered landscapes of the most remote regions of the world.Polaar
Polaar is a French beauty brand, which is inspired by the arctic world. The company offers a range of skincare and bodycare products, including moisturisers, SPFs, hand creams and shower gels.
Product ingredients and claims
The Nuit Polaire Revitalising Cream promises to relax and regenerate stressed and lacklustre skin. By morning, the night cream claims to leave you with a radiant complexion.
Although rich and creamy, this night cream still claims to deliver a matter finish.
- Glycerin: which is known for its hydrating properties
- Soybean oil: an emollient also rich in moisturising properties
- Citric acid: an AHA known that exfoliates the skin
First of all, I like the packaging. It definitely evokes a night-time vibe and I like the stars on it. It’s not the best packaging I’ve ever seen, but it’s pretty nice.
When I first tried it out, I loved the feeling of it on my face. It was creamy and cool, without being too heavy. I hate products that feel heavy on my skin because I feel like they make my skin look very greasy. But Nuit Polaire struck the right balance of being nourishing but still lightweight.
After a night’s sleep and waking up in the morning, my skin felt nice, but I couldn’t honestly feel a difference in my skin.
However, I had the exact same thought process with my Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate and that’s one of my favourite skincare products, so I wanted to give the Nuit Polaire cream some more time.
One month later
I’ve been using Nuit Polaire for a while now and yeah, I like it. I love how it feels on my skin and I think this would be great for self-care Sunday or a pamper night with the girls.
But, I don’t think it’s made any real difference to my skin. It almost reminds me of a face mask where it’s got the pampering properties, but it hasn’t improved
This isn’t necessarily a bad thing and perhaps on somebody with dry skin, this would work wonders.
I’m certainly not disappointed, though. It’s a nice cream and it feels incredibly soothing on the skin, I just don’t think it’s quite the right product for me.
Where to buy
For those of you wanting to try this product, it retails for £38.30. You can buy it either from Amazon or Birchbox.
You get a much bigger tub for that price than the one in my pictures. My sample size is 25ml but, online, the tubs are 50ml.
I like this night cream. It does have some great qualities and the texture is lovely, but I just don’t think it did a lot for my skin.
Lots of reviews online rave about this product and people say it has really improved their skin, so it does just go to show that skincare is very much unique to the individual.
Rating: 3.5 stars
A nice product, but I won’t be reinvesting.

It does sound like someone with dryer skin would see the benefits of using this more than you did. I’ve tried a couple of their products before and whilst they were okay, I wouldn’t rush to buy them. One was a lip balm, the other was a hand cream. They just didn’t blow me away, you know! 🙂

Definitely! I wouldn’t say my skin felt super moisturised after either, but maybe somebody with dry skin would feel the benefits much better. Ah that’s interesting, perhaps just not a great brand
I hadn’t heard of this brand before, so it’ll be interesting for me to try a product of theirs out! Maybe this would be a good product for me as my skin is really dry.
I think this could be good for your skin because of the texture! Although, I didn’t find it massively moisturising, so maybe not? lol xx
I’ve had the exact same sample in my drawer for months and although I can appreciate Polaar products, I don’t understand their price point.
I bought an eye cream a few months back and felt exactly the same way you did about this cream. It felt nice and hydrating, but that’s pretty much it. There are other products in the same price range that can do so much more!
Yeah 1000%. It wasn’t bad but it also wasn’t great? Yet I can think of many different products that are cheaper that give much better results. I can’t see this brand sticking about tbh…
This sounds lush! I’d love to give it a try. I’m a fan of trying out new moisturisers and things.
Ps I 100% agree Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Oil is the one!
It’s literally the best product on the planet, right? lol x
I liked the way it felt when applying it to my face. It went on smoothly and the smell is refreshing. I only had the sample tube so I can’t provide how it worked long term.
I use it and love it but I am an older woman (46yrs) maybe it is a better choice for the 40 plus skin age range? My skin is good for my age but does show a little wear and tear, here and there from years of the sun, pollution and getting older this works brilliantly for me.
