A night cream is one of those products that isn’t a straight-up necessity but it’s something your skin will seriously thank you for. Add one into your evening routine, and it’ll work overtime to restore and repair so you wake up with healthier, more youthful-looking skin.
If you’re wondering “What’s so special about a night cream?”They’re typically a richer, heavier, more hydrating formula that’s designed to penetrate the skin over a longer period of time aka when you catch your nightly zzzs. And as you can probably guess, they also work wonders in the anti-aging department. Packed with active ingredients like retinol, which diminishes the appearance of fine lines, hydrators like hyaluronic acid to plump and hydrate the skin, and ceramides to strengthen the skin’s natural barrier, they do it ALL. Here are five rich and potent face creams we love to use overnight!
This product is one of the latest to hit the shelves, and we’ve got to admit, we’re impressed. The formula is super creamy, absorbs well, and it smells divine. The unique formula is the first to combine skincare superheroes, retinol, and vitamin C; two seriously potent active ingredients that promise to improve tone and texture while giving it a radiant finish. By coating vitamin C in volcanic soil from Jeju Island in South Korea, it keeps it stabilized without needing to be stored in a refrigerator.
We’ve been testing this out for three months, and it’s strong stuff! Although it says you can use it nightly, if you’re new to retinol, we recommend using only twice a week for a few weeks before gradually increasing use. Once your skin is used to it, you can expect to wake up to plumper, brighter skin – we are very impressed with this unique formula! Find out more about using retinol here.
