Of the many things I learned on my personal skincare journey and adventure, one thing I learned is how important evening skincare is - most importantly, night serums and creams. People definitely notice I have a different glow in the day when I slathered my face with a night serum the night before.
With the rise of the beauty industry, several products have become available in the market which makes it quite difficult and confusing on which one you should get and try. Well, here are a few definitely effective night creams and serums you should have on your face every single night. We’ll try our best to break it down for you so you can pretty much gauge which would be the best for you.
Our personal pick and fave, Kiehl’s products are tried and tested holy grails. Claiming to be a nighttime facial oil that visibly restores the skin’s appearance, this product does not lie. With Evening Primrose Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, and Squalene, this product actually visibly restores skin overnight. Use this and say goodbye to the haggard-looking mornings when you didn’t get any proper sleep. This product makes 2 hours of sleep look like a complete 8 hours on you.
When you say night repair serums, the Kiehl’s and this Estēe Lauder one come to mind immediately. The Advanced Night Repair boasts anti-aging effects. It maximizes the power of the skin’s natural nighttime renewal processes with its powerful ChronoluxCB™ Technology and hyaluronic acid.
Formulated without sulfate, parabens, and phthalates, Luna has trans-retinoic acid ester complex which reduces the appearance of pores and wrinkles while improving the signs of premature aging. It has blue tansy and German chamomile essential oils which reduces redness and sensitivity on your skin for a more even-toned complexion.
If anything, this product feels divine! It’s literally like magic in a tub with Rose of Jericho, lychee, watermelon, and rhodocrosite that helps your skin replenish moisture on its surface. It boasts a mixture that locks in hydration and suppleness to the skin so you wake up looking radiant and refreshed.
Recommended for 20s to 30s to immediately recover mild to moderate signs of aging, this product is packed with snail slime extract and botanical stem cells to save distressed and dehydrated skin.
I’ve just recently tried this product (alternating it with the Kiehl’s one) and holy cow is it so good. I don’t think I’ve had an actual proper sleep that is more than 6 hours since October of this year but girl when I put this on, I immediately see the difference and it’s like I’ve been sleeping for as long as you can remember. It’s got multi-vitamin complex, Bifida Ferment, Lactobacillus Ferment, and Lactococcus Ferment as its main ingredients and whatever those are, it’s pretty darn effective.
It is never too early to start using anti-aging products. This one is perfect if you wanna hit two birds with one stone. It is a powerful age spot-correcting night moisturizer with its organic Montpellier Rose-rose. Advisable for older ages but no worries if you wanna use it on your 20s to 30s as well.
Boasting a unique solution of time-released microencapsulated retinol at 1.5%, this product gently exfoliates your skin while giving it a good dose of retinol all night. It has vitamin C and E so you don’t have to worry about what skin type you have.
Tatcha’s skincare products have been getting all the hype and for good reason: it’s super effective. This is literally beauty sleep in a jar and will leave your face feeling fresh and hydrated as it melts to give you a youthful glow. It has red algae from the mineral-rich waters of Okinawa that gives your skin plumpness and dewyness.
T.L.C. means tartaric, lactic, and citric acids which is mixed with glycolic to exfoliate built-up dead skin cells and resurfacing dull, uneven skin for a brighter and smoother complexion. It also has 1% salicylic acid to unclog your pores and soothe redness. More than anything, it’s got a super cute packaging that complements its equally cute ingredients of raspberry fruit extract, cactus extract, horse chestnut and virgin marula oil.
