ICYMI: Bethenny Frankel Is Wild About This Affordable L'Oréal Paris Moisturizer

“Just like a $500 cream!”
March 31, 2023


If you’ve ever checked out Bethenny Frankel’s social media pages then you know that the OG “housewife” is just as outspoken as she is business savvy. If you’re a brand you better beware, because her cosmetics reviews are raw, honest, funny, entertaining and most importantly, trustworthy. She even has a running review series where she talks about expensive beauty products that are not worth the money — it’s a list you don’t want to be on. But if you wow Frankel, she’ll sing your product’s praises in her notable New York accent.

Recently, the Just B with Bethenny Frankel podcast host put the spotlight on what we’ve been lauding as one of the best moisturizers for hydration, anti-aging benefits and improved radiance — the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Skin Care Cell Renewal Midnight Cream.

Dressed in a casual pink hoodie, sporting a bare (yet flawless) face and ponytail, the reality star and entrepreneur slathers her face with the cream as she explains why this is the moisturizer to reach for if you want rich skin at a drugstore price. 

It’s not overly fragranced; it is so rich and it looks, feels, smells and is just like a $500 cream,” she says in the video. “I’m not kidding — you will know the second you try it.

It’s #atthelevel and we all know that the Skinnygirl mogul wouldn’t say it if she didn’t believe it (she actually says it’s above the level, to be exact). As someone who tries so many products — drugstore and prestige alike — Frankel knows the difference between hype and truly effective ingredients, and her followers tend to agree. 

One follower commented, “Is it good though seriously, like you wake up in the morning and your skin is sick good,”  while another said, “The @lorealparis midnight serum is to die for! It will be your new obsession!”

Meet Age Perfect Skin Care Cell Renewal Midnight Cream

Want to learn more about this beloved face cream? Keep reading to discover the formula and the ingredients that make this coveted must-have such a staple in so many skin care routines across the country — with nearly 10,000 five-star consumer reviews.

The Formula

L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Skin Care Cell Renewal Midnight Cream melts into the skin to offer 24-hour hydration. The formula is lightweight and non-greasy so it works its magic without leaving your complexion slick. It’s paraben free, allergy tested, dermatologist tested and suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin, but especially great for dry skin and mature skin.

The silky texture of the cream wraps around the skin to create an environment for skin barrier repair. While you can use it in your morning skin care routine, it’s most beneficial at night when skin is most receptive to renewal and regeneration. Immediately, skin is deeply moisturized and looks glowing the morning after use. After just four weeks of continued use, skin looks firmer, wrinkles are smoothed and the complexion appears more radiant.

The Ingredients

Made with a patented antioxidant and vitamin E, this moisture cream for all skin types is indeed one to reach for to get that rich skin look (and feel). A boost of vitamin E helps prevent the production of cell-damaging free radicals generated after exposure to UV, which can prematurely age the skin. And a mix of antioxidants, shea butter, meadowfoam seed oil and lipohydroxy acid help to soothe and protect the skin, no matter your skin tone.


Pair the moisturizer with the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Skin Care Cell Renewal Anti-Aging Midnight Serum, which is made with antioxidants and hydrating hyaluronic acid. The quick-absorbing serum is non-comedogenic, non-greasy, non-sticky and has a silky finish.

The Price

Cell Renewal Midnight Cream will run you $37 and last you for several weeks. Other moisturizers that contain the same ingredients and tout the same benefits can easily cost you $50, $65, $100 — some are even priced at nearly $300. And though people may want to call this a dupe of some luxury line, this formula isn’t a copycat. It’s made with derm-approved and derm-tested, potent anti-aging ingredients. It’s just a quality night cream making an impression all on its own.
