A night cream is essential; it restores the skin while we sleep assisting in the rejuvenating process – it is more than an overindulgent moisturiser. The best night creams hydrate, help battle fine lines and wrinkles, smooth skin, and reduce redness and puffiness. And while some do favour the luxury price points, they aren’t exactly easy on your wallet. So for those that want to spend a fraction of the cost but still use a night cream that packs a powerful punch, these are three of our current budget-friendly favourites. With continuous use, your skin should get better and better over time.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel, €17.99
This isn’t technically a night cream but the skin looks so good the morning after the night before that I’m including it. If you’re looking for an instant pick-me-up, this cream has exactly what you need in droves: Hyaluronic acid – it’s packed with the stuff. This science-based magic lies in hyaluronic acid’s ability to replenish moisture (a lot of moisture) which keeps your tired visage looking plumped up and youthful.
RoC Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream, €20.13
This travel-friendly, tiny tube is a true skin saviour. Boosted with retinol – it’s highly effective but just take care if your skin is particularly sensitive as it’s a powerful ingredient so test a little on your skin first – it smooths slight lines and skin suitably glows the following morning. Lightweight and non-greasy, it doesn’t feel as heavy-duty as a regular moisturiser but is no less effective.
Burts Bees Intense Hydration Night Creme, €24.99
Its light yet effective consistency and calming scent is subtle and soothing. And the addition of the Clary Sage helps intensely hydrate the skin while helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. If you’re looking for an inexpensive, natural moisturiser, this is for you.
