1 || Lancôme’s Rénergie Multi-Glow Night Cream

From Lancome, comes a savior for skin that suffers from lack of sleep. This night cream annihilates tired looking skin, something which this age group is more susceptible to than any other. That same lack of sleep is one of the causes of sagging, as skin loses its elasticity. With ceramides paired with omega-6 and -9 fatty acids to boost vitality, think of this moisturizing cure-all as your complexion’s equivalent to a nap in a jar.



2 || StriVectin’s Advanced Retinol Intensive Night Moisturizer

More on the expensive side, this cream is loaded with great ingredients that include olive oil, lactic acid, shea butter, aloe, hyaluronic acid, panthenol, and resveratrol. A very effective treatment for skin in dire need for a major upgrade. 



3 || NEOCUTIS’ Lumière Riche Bio-restorative Eye Balm

When it comes to eye creams, always opt for ones with ceramides and lipids.. Those really help with crepiness around the eyes. This eye cream is a powerful combination of deeply hydrating moisturizers, caffeine, and botanicals which work to fight puffiness and dark circles, while simultaneously preventing signs of aging like fine lines.



4 || Elizabeth Arden’s Micro Capsule Skin Replenishing Essence

Essence -for a reminder- is an ingredient which is applied after cleansing and before treating the skin, prepping it for what comes next. Elizabeth Arden’s contains tsubaki oil for hydration, red algae to boost the skin’s own production of ceramides and orchid stem cells to pep up skin vitality, it’s great for anyone lacking luminosity.



5 || Prai Platinum Firm and Lift

One year after our last period is technically peri-menopause. With the subsequent loss of 30 per cent of our collagen in the first five years after this, these are drastic times for our skin. One of the first skincare brands to embrace hormonal changes with openness and clarity, Prai’s new cream is clinically proven to firm, tone and keep mature skin looking moisturized.



6 || Nivea’s Q10 Power Anti-Wrinkle Power 60\+

Argan oil is the secret ingredient in this rich Nivea cream. It’s non-greasy and comes in two versions: one for day and one for night. The ingredients are aimed at women over 60, for whom dry skin is often a concern.
