Overnight Moisturizers for Dry Skin

Skincare seems to have a lot of rules. But I’ve found that I’ve learned the most about my skin by my own experimentation, subjective observations, and, when in doubt, being gentle. One finding I’ve made, over and over, is that my overnight moisturizer matters. Especially with my dry skin—a super hydrating overnight moisturizer can ‘carry over’ into the next day. Waking up with plump skin serves as a solid foundation for the following day’s moisturizing and bodes well for the rest of the day!

I’ve found that two different styles of moisturizers work particularly well for my dry skin. If I need a super boosting hydration punch, I’ll go with one of the hydration packers. If it’s a Saturday night at 3AM and I simply do not have the energy to do my typical 7-step routine, I’ll cut corners with these dry-skin-approved overnight vitamins.

Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

$35 USD

So you need a super hydrating overnight moisturizer? My bet is that this one will be just right. It’s unscented, non-clogging, and always in my nighttime skincare drawer. It’s super reliable and low drama: I love mixing moisturizers, and I’ll mix this one in to add a moisturizing boost.

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask

$28 USD

Easily top of the list. I’ve loved this moisturizer for its sweet scent (something to be aware of if you’re sensitive to scents!), its thick texture, andskin-friendliness (it absorbs wellinto the skin, and plays well with other layers). Biiiig fan over here, big fan.

Lumene Valo Overnight Cream

$14.50 USD

This cream is rich. It’s heavy, and when you apply it, it seems to sit atop the skin. But by morning, your skin has absorbed it fully: from Vitamins A, B3, C, and D to the antioxidants and hyaluronic acid. This could have fallen into ‘overnight vitamins’, but its formula leaves skin plump and hydrated too!

SKYN ICELAND OXYGEN INFUSION NIGHT CREAM.png

Skyn ICELAND Oxygen Infusion Night Cream with Glacial Flower Extract

$65 USD

This moisturizer was my Saturday night buddy. Every time I went to bed late, I’d apply this, while also forgoing a few other skincare steps. In the morning, my skin felt so healthy! So vibrant! So with it! Even after having skipped out on a serum or two! This one really impresses me.

Allies of Skin 1A Overnight Mask

$109 USD

A true skin-vacuum right here. Having dry skin, I need a lot of exfoliation to ensure that I don’t break out or my skin doesn’t appear dull. This potion seems to tidy up my skin overnight. Congestion—zapped. Lines—smoothed. Dry patches—nourished. This one is a superhero!

RoC Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Anti-Aging Facial Night Cream

$17.99 USD

This was a product that made me think, “Hmm, maybe there IS something to be said about using skincare.” That was, like, three years ago and here we are today. This was the product that showed me that skincare can be potent and effective. This moisturizer isn’t the most glam, but it sure helped me fake a lot of sleep during some sleep-deprived phases of life. I think I’ll pick one of these up again, just to have it on hand!
