4 Night Creams and Sleeping Masks for Fresh Skin Overnight
With so many night creams and masks in the market, which should you choose? Here are products we recommend that will leave you waking up to soft and refresned skin.
ELIZABETH ARDEN EIGHT HOUR® CREAM SKIN PROTECTANT
NIGHTTIME MIRACLE MOISTURISER
♥ THE CAMBELLES STAR PICK ♥
The Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour® Cream is lauded for its ability to keep skin hydrated for up to eight hours (just about right for a nights worth of sleep)!
The new Skin Protectant has the texture of a gel but has the amazing properties of the award-winning salve. This is the perfect night cream full of hydrating ingredients such as shea butter, vitamin E and lavender! Wake up to gorgeous, radiant skin thats supple and moisturised.
This may not be the cheapest or most affordable night cream product on the market, but it is extremely effective and makes fans easily with its efficacious formula. Perfect for use if you sleep in air-conditioning or in dry conditions when travelling.

VICHY AQUALIA THERMAL RICH CREAM
Vichy Thermal Water and Activ Hyaluronine™ are combined to provide skin with long-lasting moisture. This is not a night cream per se, but a very rich moisturizer that is suitable for those with dry to extremely dry skin. This product was previously reviewed on The Cambelles.
It is without a doubt a heavy product that doesn’t absorb quite as quickly, but if applied before sleep and left on through the night, results in very smooth, supple and baby soft skin.
The formulation is also suitable for those with sensitive skin as it has been allergy-tested under dermatological control and is paraben-free.

FOR BELOVED ONE RED WINE ANTI-OXIDANT NIGHT JELLY
Taiwan’s leading cosmeceutical skincare brand, For Beloved One, known and loved for their skin loving formulations steeped in scientific research and innovation has presented yet another fantastic product that will delight fans of the brand. Already praised for their efficacious best selling premium bio-cellulose masks, For Beloved One now delivers a overnight skin solution in its Red Wine Anti-Oxidant Night Jelly.
The Red Wine Anti-Oxidant Night Jelly targets top beauty woes like dull, rough and dehydrated skin and works through the night to deeply nourish skin. It is formulated with red wine polyphenols from France known for its anti-oxidant properties and improves skin metabolism and reduces skin fatigue with patented Prodizia Anti-Glycation Patent. Other ingredients are a mouthful, such as the Lactobacillus Ferment which can lead to a brightened and balanced skin tone, plus Chronodyn Cell Energizer that helps skin recovery and firmness. What can I say, you’re obviously paying a hefty price tag for the solid R&D and powerful ingredients rolled into one 50ml jar of jelly-like night gel cream.
Slather it on and see brighter, radiant and smoother skin next morning. Prolonged usage also promises general improvement in skin elasticity and texture as well, thanks to the strong healing properties of its power packed list of ingredients.
KIEHL’S OVER-NIGHT BIOLOGICAL PEEL
Unlike most of the masks and creams featured, Kiehl’s Over-Night Biological Peel is an exfoliating skincare product. Unlike chemical peels, biological peels stimulates the skin’s natural biological cell turnover process and are less harsh making it suitable for those with sensitive skin.
This gentle over-night blend includes HEPES (Hydroxyethylpiperazine Ethane Sulfonic Acid) and a high concentration of Sodium Hyaluronate, which has strong hydrating properties. As it is rather gentle, use religiously at least two to three times a week for best effect.
This product is perfect for ladies (and men) who wish to lessen the appearance of dark spots, acne scarring and other effects of sun damage on skin, and are hoping to even out skin tone while revealing softer, renewed skin. Oh yes, and it works to reduce pore size as well. The only downside is that this concoction has a strong smell (that borders a little on unpleasant as it is not scented) and works best on dry and patchy skin.
