Madara Time Miracle Total Renewal Night Cream is a soothing, fast-absorbing night cream, promoting silky soft and hydrated skin.
Ive been getting a lot of emails regarding the Madara products; since the Madara Time Miracle Total Renewal Night Cream fell into my lap via December Love Lula Beauty Box, I’d say reviewing this silky soft potion during winter is a great time.
Madara Time Miracle Total Renewal Night Cream is a bit of a miracle, indeed. It’s packed with ingredients promoting hydrated, silky smooth skin, while also promoting collagen production. While created as a night treatment, I couldn’t help myself not to use it during the day as well; but more on that later.
The Madara night cream I’ve been testing for the past month is that of a travel size (20ml); so far, with anything but modest use, I’ve used about half of the tube.
The Madara Time Miracle Total Renewal Night Cream’s texture falls somewhere in between light and thick; even when coming into first contact with the cream, you’ll notice just how silky and gentle it is. The cream spreads so easily and evenly; come to think, I can’t recall a cream which would spread as nicely as Madara’s night cream.
Before I say a word or two about how hard Madara Time Miracle Total Renewal Night Cream works for your skin, I have to point out another great aspect of this cream – curiously fast absorption. While the texture of the cream is not super light, nor is the function of the cream that of a light moisturizer, the absorption is super fast. The cream’s finish is soft, silky and even matte, but not dry. Due to all of this, some may even have a feeling the cream is not enough; not enough moisturizing or not enough nourishing – but that’s not the case.

At first, I was using the Madara night cream only as a night treatment. Immediately upon application, the skin appears youthful. The cream does not feel heavy on the skin at all; but the feeling it leaves on the skin is amazing – not just soft, but silky soft, velvety soft. And the skin, likewise, feels soft in the morning, while also having a rested and recharged look. Quite amazing.
So, given the smooth application, fast absorption and silky look and feel this cream leaves on the skin, naturally, I was tempted to try it as a day cream as well – especially as a foundation primer; both for mineral and liquid foundation. And let me tell you – even as a foundation primer, it works like a charm.
The Madara Time Miracle Total Renewal Night Cream formulation consists of some quite amazing and skin-beneficial ingredients: it covers antioxidant, moisturizing, skin-soothing, skin-softening, anti-aging aspects.

So, let’s take a closer look at the ingredients.

Birch Juice (Birch Extract leaf and bark extract of the White Birch Tree) has astringent, anti-inflammatory and skin-soothing properties. It also has skin healing and purifying properties. Due to Vitamins A, B1, B2, C and E, it’s also a potent antioxidant. Jojoba oil is a skin/sebum identical ingredient. It easily absorbs and retains moisture; it smooths and softens the skin. It is suitable for all skin types, especially for oily and acne prone skin. Squalene, another skin-identical ingredient, has antioxidant and skin-repairing properties. It promotes skin regeneration. Seabuckthorn Fruit Extract has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It rejuvenates and moisturizes the skin.
Red Clower Flower Extract has soothing properties; it is especially great for those, who have irritated skin. Madara Extract has antioxidant and antiseptic properties. Lady’s Mantle Extract has, along with a curious name, due to such constituents as salicylic acid, potent astringent and anti-inflammatory properties, thus being great for oily and acne prone skin. It also promotes tighter pores. Blueberries Fruit extract astringent and moisturizing properties, as well as antioxidant properties due to Vitamins A and C. Horsetail Extract has anti-aging and skin-tightening properties.
Horse – Chestnut Seed Extract has skin-soothing properties and anti-ageing properties.
Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid (hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the dermis of the skin) promotes collagen production and skin elasticity. As an amazing water-retainer, it’s super hydrating. Sodium hyaluronate lessens oxidization.
Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C) and Tocopherol (Vitamin E) are antioxidants.
Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate is an emulsifier, an emollient and texture enhancer. Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline, essentially a peptide, has potent anti-aging properties: it promotes collagen production, it firms and plumps the skin and lessens the wrinkles. Betaine is a a potent humectant and anti-irritant The main ingredient in Madara night cream, which gives this cream silky and smooth finish and feel. Beta-glucan, like Betaine, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It promotes collagen production and skin recovery. It’s a potent moisturizer and is great for sensitive skin. Dicaprylyl Carbonate, is what makes this Madara night cream spread so easily; it leaves this skin velvety soft without making it look greasy. Glyceryl Stearate is a lubricant and emulsifier.
Chitin – now this ingredient took me aback a bit, as I’m not used to seeing this ingredient. Chitin is a polysaccharide derived from the from the exoskeleton of marine invertebrates (you know, like shrimp, lobster). It’s described as an abrasive and a bulking agent, which also improves the skin hydrating properties,
And – aroma. I am not certain what’s behind this ingredient, precisely, just as I’m not entirely sure how to describe the scent of Madara night cream – the scent is gentle and pleasant, it may have a hint of minty scent? It is not denoted as its source being natural, like from essential oils.

Potentially problematic ingredients?
- Benzyl Alcohol: it plays several roles in cosmetic industry – a solvent, masking agent/fragrance agent, preservative. While Benzyl Alcohol is also a naturally occurring ingredient, found in essential oils (jasmine, ylang ylang), in cosmetic industry, it’s mostly used the synthetic one. It is a possible skin and eye irritant, and it can cause contact dermatitis. It’s also noted it can be toxic to infants.
- Cetyl Alcohol is an emulsion stabilizer and can be irritating (those, who have very sensitive skin should caution with this mascara), as well as comedogenic.
- Potassium sorbate, preservative. Skin toxicant and/or allergen.
- Sodium Benzoate, preservative. While I understand the need for preservatives in formulations, especially those formulations, which contain water (this Madara night cream does contain water), I, at the same time, also have to point out the bad side of preservatives.

My final word?
Madara Time Miracle Total Renewal Night Cream works hard to replenish, rejuvenate and tighten the skin. The finish of this night cream is a treat for the skin – smooth, silky and velvety – and I don’t mean just when you apply the cream, but the next day as well. It gives the skin a healthy and youthful look. Since it’s so smooth and it absorbs so quickly, I’ve been using it as a foundation primer as well – what can I say – the cream really is versatile and much liked by my skin. This night cream is perfect for winter days, which are harsher for the skin – but – given its lightness and fast absorption – I know I’d use it during summer as well – it’s that versatile, indeed!
The Madara Time Miracle Total Renewal Night Cream I’ve been happily testing comes in a 20ml tube, but the full size comes in a generous 50ml bottle and it costs around €43 – which, I think, based on the amount and based on its performance – it’s more than reasonable and acceptable. Quite honestly, I cannot tell you how long a 50ml bottle would last for you – maybe 5 months – because, if your skin would be anywhere near as satisfied with this Madara Time Miracle Total Renewal Night Cream, then you might use it up much sooner.
You can get the 20ml tube of Madara Time Miracle Total Renewal Night Cream along with a bunch of other Madara goodies in this Madara Set (worth worth £62 for only £29).
Do I recommend Madara Time Miracle Total Renewal Night Cream? Most certainly!
