Must-Have Night Creams for the Winter

It has finally begun—sweater weather! It took a while, but mother nature is back on track and with sweater weather comes dryer skin and paler faces. To keep your skin glowing all winter long while maintaining its softness, VALLEY has created a list of night creams that will have you obsessed.

1. Clinique’s Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

The great thing about Clinique is that you can find this brand almost anywhere. Sephora, CVS and even Walmart. This mask will work its magic all night long while you catch some z’s. Just apply it on your clean, dry face and just hop into bed. It’s oil-free so your face won’t feel sticky like how some night creams feel when you apply them. It costs between $8 and $30, depending on what size you buy and what store you buy it from.

2. Neutrogena Deep Moisture Night Cream

If you want a more heavy-duty night cream, you’ve found it. Neutrogena’s Deep Moisture Night Cream absorbs quickly and has vitamin D3 which instantly relieves dryness to bring back that summer glow. Don’t be afraid of the fact that it is deep moisture, the formula is anything but thick. Your skin will be back to being soft and supple within a week of using this. You can snag this beauty fave at Ulta Beauty for $12.99.

3. Origins Drink Up-Intensive Overnight Mask to Quench Skin’s Thirst

The title of this Origins product says it all— your skin will look hydrated and plump after you use this mask. During the transition from fall to winter, our skin can lose hydration and color due to the lack of vitamin D that we would normally get in the summer. This mask is great for those extra cold nights where you’ve had a rough day and your skin needs a pick-me-up. Apply this after you have washed your face and you’ll wake up with glowing skin. You can get this at Ulta for $27.

The formula helps with fine lines that and brings back that firmness in your skin. You’ll wake up with skin that looks smooth and bright. It sells in Ulta for $38.
