Faithful Four: Night Creams

The Body Shop Vitamin E Night Cream
Promise: “This rich night cream replenishes moisture levels while you sleep. It intensively hydrates, works when skin is at its most receptive and leaves skin soft and smooth”
Price: £11.00/$20.00 50ml 

This thick and soothing night cream is great for dry and sensitive skin. However avoid this cream at all costs if you suffer from oily skin as you may find it makes it worse. The price is great, a little goes a long way and skin is left hydrated and glowing the morning after using it. It's no surprise that this night cream is one of The Body Shop's best selling products.

REN Frankincense Revitalising Night Cream
Promise: “A night cream formulated to hydrate, recharge and revitalise the skin overnight, leaving it looking radiant, smoothed and beautifully healthy”
Price: £32.00/$55.00 50ml
Purchase: www.renskincare.comPlanet OrganicSephora

The REN Frankincense Revitalising Night Cream is a gentle night cream that really injects moisture into the skin. As with all REN products, this night cream is paraben free. The cream has a silky, light texture that glides onto the skin easily. Some of the key ingredients are Vitamin C and Citroflavonoids which reduce free radical damage and boost collagen production and Frankincense and Boswellic Acid which help smooth expression lines and wrinkles.

Eucerin Anti-Ageing Hyaluron Filler Night Cream
Promise: “Eucerin Anti-Ageing Hyaluron Filler Night Cream with wrinkle-filling treatment plumps up the appearance of even deep wrinkles from the inside”
Price: £26.00 50ml
Purchase: Boots

This cream is thick, ultra hydrating and best used on normal, mature or dry skin. It feels soothing on skin and when I wake, my skin looks (and feels!) plumped and much perkier. Hero ingredients include Hyaluronic Acid and Saponin which restore skin volume, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. This cream also creates a great base for foundation, making it a great day cream alternative if you run out!

Antipodes Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream
Promise: “This deeply nourishing , superior-performance botanical night cream restores life to your skin overnight. Its select premium plant oils promote collagen production & regeneration of healthy cells”
Price: £32.95/$60.00 60ml 
Purchase: (UK), (USA)

This has to be one of my all time favourite night creams. It has been scientifically proven to stimulate type I collagen production by up to 92% and this is evident the morning after applying. My skin looks plumper, feels super soft and fine lines are less visible! Though on the pricey side, a little product goes a long way and the pot seems to last a lifetime.
