Fab five: nourishing night creams

With the cool and the dry crispness of winter upon us, every evening I find myself reaching the richest of night creams to soothe my dry parched face and let it work its magic as I sleep. And what a difference a good moisturiser makes. My skin feels soft and smooth in the morning and looks absolutely radiant (even if the rest of me is not!). Here are five of my favourites...
O Cosmedics Comfort Cream -  as its name suggests, this super luxurious and velvety cream containing potent mix of antioxidants, is deeply penetrating and comforting for distressed skin. It heals, protects, hydrates and repairs against UV damage and aging. My skin is immediately quenched and looks radiant on application, it really is TLC in a jar!

Natio Ageless Firming Night Cream - I love Natio for their range of effective, affordable products. This hardworking night cream is no exception - it feels silky smooth  and is my pick for warmer months when it just melts into skin, leaving it soft and supple without that horrible greasy feeling. It has a light botanical fragrance, making it very pleasant to use.

Paula's Choice Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer - I have sensitive skin and so have always been a wee bit afraid to incorporate retinol in my skin routine as it can cause some flakiness. I'd read many good reviews about this moisturizer so decided to give it a try. It has a mild enough formula (0.1% retinol) that it doesn't irritate my skin and oh my goodness, does it work to give calm my skin, reducing redness and dullness and the deepness of fine lines.

Dermalogica Super Rich Repair - a highly concentrated, heavy duty cream packed full of peptides and shea butter, this is the moisturizer I have reaching for since winter's arrival. Though thick, it spreads out well and is readily absorbed by the skin - a little half pump goes a long way. I just apply nightly to clean skin and let it do its magic repair work while I sleep.

Botani Olive Repair Cream Day/Night Moisturizer - a richly hydrating but fluid cream that effectively hydrates dry skin types. It even works as a treatment for Eczema and Psoriasis, redness and irritated skin conditions. I use it when my skin is congested, typically in the warmer months. I like that it is suitable to use day and night - it works well as a make up base and leaves my skin feeling dewy and smooth. And of course, its all natural formulation gets a big tick from me!

Do you have a night cream to recommend too?

I tried a sample of the Dermalogica Super Rich Repair and it's so nourishing! I'm currently using Innarah's Veno Defense Treatment Creme as my night ream and I really love it.
