Top Product: No7 Lift and Luminate Night Cream | $27 | Ulta
We’ve all been there, you get a bad night’s sleep and it reads all over your face. Dull skin, raccoon eyes, and uneven patches are all culprits when a night without peaceful slumber hits. Lucky for us there are a few quality night creams to aid with each of those concerns. Here are the best of the bunch, based on my personal, anecdotal experience as well as that of my favorite beauty gurus.
Best Anti Aging Night Cream for 30s: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream
There’s a reason that the Ultra Facial Cream is one of Kiehl’s customers’ favorite products. Providing 24-hour hydration, this cream hydrates skin and smoothes its appearance gently yet effectively. Its ingredients shield skin from free radicals and protect it from extremely cold temperatures (similar to the ones we’re experiencing this winter.). Sqalane is also infused in this cream to restore natural moisture since it has a molecular structure similar to natural skin lipids.
Best Drugstore Night Cream: Neutrogena Triple Age Repair
Packaged in a smooth, plum jar, the Neutrogena Triple Age night cream is formulated with vitamin C and glycerin. These ingredients diminish the appearance of wrinkles, smooth uneven texture, and soften skin’s firmness. This product is clinically proven to create a noticeable difference within four weeks of its use. As a bonus, the cream’s Hexinol technology will enhance your skin’s elasticity and overall appearance. The brand recommends applying the cream to the face and neck every night once the skin has already been cleansed.
Best Night Cream for Dry Skin: LilyAna Naturals Face Cream
Sometimes, a little hydration is all you need! This all-natural, vegan beauty product is formulated with beautiful botanicals, such as aloe vera juice, cranberry, and rose distillate, all meant to keep your skin looking radiant. Plus, this cream also helps correct dark spots, dullness, and hyperpigmentation. Also, you can rest assured knowing that no animals were tested in creating this product.
Best Night Cream for Sensitive Skin: La Roche-Posay Toleriane

La Roche-Posay’s Toleriane Ultra Night Cream was created with thermal spring water, neurosensine, and an antioxidant complex [carnosine + vitamin E], all meant to soothe sensitive skin. Once you apply this product, not only will you experience instant comfort, but it will help rebuild your skin’s moisture barrier. Also, if you have allergies, know that this cream is not only allergy-tested and dermatologist recommended.
Best Night Cream for Wrinkles: Dermalogica Sound Sleep Cocoon
Ready to make a major skincare splurge? Cash in on a top-rated bestseller, Dermalogica’s Sound Sleep Cocoon. This product will optimize your skin’s recovery process, reducing hyperpigmentation with vitamin c and fighting free radicals with Persian silk tree extract. Tamarind seed and Wu-Zhu-Yu fruit extract may sound a bit obscure, but together, they’ll make your face glow all over again. The “Cocoon” also works to jumpstart microcirculation which leads to the luminous look you’ve been trying to achieve.
