We’ve all heard of the term ‘beauty sleep’, those crucial overnight hours when your skin does the bulk of its repairing. To supercharge that repairing process, we’ve created Restorative Night Cream, an advanced, ultra-hydrating night time moisturizer containing powerful antioxidants and plant actives to regenerate your skin while you sleep.
Scientifically formulated to get results you can see, this age-defying night cream, also available lightly scented with hints of plum and vanilla blossom, contains essential fatty acids and active ingredients to deeply penetrate beneath the skin’s surface to encourage cell renewal.
The ultimate nighttime repair treatment for radiant looking skin.

NOTE: Our Kanapa™ Restorative Night Cream is formulated, to be used along with our Nourishing Day Cream or our Ultra-Light Day & Night Cream with Whitening to support optimum skin health both day and night.
What are some benefits I can experience from using Kanapa™ Restorative Night Cream?

Can I apply Kanapa™ Restorative Night Cream to my body if my skin is very dry?
There is no reason why you cannot apply Kanapa™ Restorative Night Cream to small areas of your body, where the skin is exceptionally dry. However, applying the cream to large areas of the body is simply not very economical. We recommend using our Replenishing Body Lotion to target dry skin on the body, which is specially designed for all over body use. This product is deeply nourishing and absorbs effectively into the skin, please see the individual product page for more information.
Can I use Kanapa™ Soothing Eye Contour Cream at the same time as the Night Cream?
Yes it is absolutely fine to use Kanapa™ Soothing Eye Contour Cream with the Restorative Night Cream. Just leave a gap of 10 mins between one product and the other before applying, to ensure that one is completely absorbed before the next is applied.
Is Kanapa™ Restorative Night Cream too heavy for my skin if it is prone to acne?
Kanapa™ Restorative Night Cream is suitable for all skin types, including acne prone skin types. It is richly moisturizing but is not clogging to the pores, so it should not make acne worse. Our formula is rich but lightweight, with beneficial properties that can support the skin, without the drying agents that are present in most acne products. While it is not specifically designed to treat acne, it's likely that the synergistic mix of ingredients will result in fewer breakouts over time. Then you can hopefully discontinue any other products containing harsh chemicals that can leave skin feeling parched and flaky.
When beginning this product we suggest applying a small amount for a few nights and monitor how your skin responds. If you have a naturally oily skin you may find you can use a very small amount to provide adequate hydration.
What is your Kanapa™ blend used in your skincare range?
Kanapa is a Maori (native New Zealand) word for 'bright' or 'glow' and we believe our signature blend provides ingredients to allow your skin to do just that. It is a unique blend of eight plant-based ingredients designed to support the skin's natural ability to repair itself, and help you maintain skin with a youthful glow and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Rich in replenishing oils and including omegas 3, 6 and 9, our unique Kanapa™ blend works to replenish, strengthen and protect the skin. This innovative, replenishing blend is your key to age-defying skin.
Do you test your skincare or supplements on animals?
We do not conduct or commission animal testing on raw materials or finished products in any phase of development. We do not test on animals under any circumstances. We are deeply committed to respecting animal life and wellbeing, as well as our environment.
What is the shelf life of your products?
We have a significant number of antioxidants in our skincare, and as we are careful to prevent oxidation of these potent ingredients, we have chosen to package these products in tubes. This prevents excessive exposure of the product to air. Our skin care products have a shelf life of two years from manufacture date and we recommend storing them in a cool dry place.
Does Kanapa™ skincare contain any mineral oils?
None of our products contain mineral oils. Mineral oils can clog the pores, interfere with skin's ability to eliminate toxins, and encourage breakouts. We use nourishing plant-based oils which nourish the skin without aggravating acne.

I have been using the Restorative Night Cream through the years. It feels so light and rich and makes my skin feel smooth and luxuriously refreshed at bedtime.
I am 73 and I also buy the Restorative Night Cream for my 33-year-old daughter, which shows that it benefits any age. We both have dry skin if we forget to use our creams, so we are careful to stick to our regimen. We have used the Restorative Night Cream for a number of years and highly recommend it.
I've been using the Restorative Night Cream for years, I'm in my 30s, and this cream has always nourished my skin beautifully. I buy this over and over again and I have tried high end skincare - vintners daughter, Augustinus Bader, Sunday Riley, biologique Recherche - and I always keep buying this night cream.
I have been using the Restorative Night Cream for more than a decade, and use it in my night time regime, which includes Xtend's Kanapa Foaming Facial Cleanser, followed by the night cream and the soothing eye contour cream, a winning combo for me. This cream is a richer formulation than the Luminous Day & Night Cream, which I use in the morning, and it feels very restorative. I highly recommend this product. I am in my 50s, and people often comment on my skin and can't believe my age, so that is testament to Xtend-Life products and my way of life.
I have been using this product for over 5 years now. I am a 59-year-old female, and people can't believe my age. I've lived at the beach in South Carolina for 30 years and didn't worry about the wrinkles until I hit about 50yrs old. The sun can take a toll. But I use this religiously morning and night, and I have no wrinkle lines on my eyes or around my mouth! I have had extreme skin allergies my whole life and spent many days with a red face because whatever I was trying would show up a few days after use. I haven't had red face now for years! And i love that there is no scent. The Restorative Night Cream and the Nourishing Day Cream day are both great.
