We're halfway through January, which means we will be sitting on the beach in just 5 months! Unfortunately, we still have to endure about 3 more months of unpredictable New England weather, and dry, artificial indoor heat. Like many gals, my skin goes cray in the winter - it is dry and oily at the same time. Brutal. Night creams have been a godsend this season because they address dry skin while you sleep, so you don't have to go to work with too much shiny moisturizer all over your face in the morning. Plus, since entering my "late twenties" this fall, I've decided to get serious about wrinkle prevention (though, not as serious as Martha Stewart).
I did my homework by testing a bunch of samples, so here are the final four JUGs approved creams:
- Burt's Bees Clary Sage Night Cream, $18. This is the best budget cream: no weird chemicals and comes from a trusted company. Skin feels super soft when you wake up!
- Nerium AD Age Defying Treatment, $110. This is for serious wrinkle-prevention with definite results. Nerium is great for people that aren't as worried about dry skin, but are mainly concerned with looking 25 forevahhh.
- OSEA Advanced Protection Cream, $98. This night cream is made with organic ingredients and is rated very well by the Environmental Working Group's Skindeep Database. It works wonders, in fact, the only reason it isn't my fav is because of the pricepoint. (I am also obsessed with their ocean cleansing mud - great for oily skin).
- Organic Doctor Virgin Olive Oil Night Cream, $20. This is my overall favorite- it works, smells amaze, is affordable, and doesn't contain any weird chemicals! Win!
