The Facial Bar: Overnight Repair Cream Review

Today I’m going to be focusing on one product that I’ve been trying out for a month (September 4th to present).  This is the Overnight Repair Cream from the Facial Bar.


This product was sent as complimentary PR from the Facial Bar, but this in no way effects my opinion on the product.

Before I go into the review, I’ll tell a bit more about the brand.  The Facial Bar is black woman owned business with all cruelty free and vegan products.  They offer skin care, body care, and cosmetics, but they are phasing out the cosmetics to focus solely on skin and body care.  They sell individual products, skin care kits, and accessories.  Their prices range from $16 for individual products to $98 for complete sets.

I chose to try the overnight repair cream because it claims to hydrate and clear preexisting breakouts and prevent future ones.  I have dry skin that is prone to eczema, as well as cystic hormonal acne around my period.  When I started using this product I had some eczema spots and healing acne, as you’ll see below in the before and after photo.

This is the description, instructions, and ingredients from their website:

“Overnight Repair Cream wasformulated to help address the issues of acne breakouts and inflammatory skin conditions. This cream is smooth, silky, and it absorbs readily and completely. Great for the acne spots that pop up overnight!

*Disclaimer* – I used this product in conjunction with other cleansers and serums, but this was the only new product added to my routine since the photo was taken.

Here is the before and after photos taken a month apart:


I’m very happy with these results.  In the first photo I had eczema and patches of dry skin around my nose and on my chin, as well as healing cystic acne on my forehead.  In the second photo, all the dry patches have healed up as well as the acne with no scarring whatsoever.  I’ll attribute less freckles and sunspots to the season changing and my vitamin C serum, but my complexion overall looks much more even.

What attracted to me to this cream was the Hyaluronic Acid for moisture and Lactic Acid as a chemical exfoliant to help heal my acne.  I would also like to add that I was using very high end and painfully expensive creams to try and help my chronic dry skin, including the Drunk Elephant Protini Cream and Marula Oil and the Philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar, and this cream blew them out of the water.
