5 Night Creams That Work Better Than Botox

Have you hopped on the night cream train yet? They’re more than just a nighttime moisturizer. They’re designed to target your skin during its regeneration process and deliver skin-healthy ingredients to repair any damage and promote collagen production and hydration.

When looking for a new night cream, dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, M.D. says it’s best to look for formulas that contain retinol as it’s one of the most powerful anti-aging ingredients. “Retinol is the best-studied ingredient we have over the counter to fight the signs of aging. It stimulates collagen and elastin to strengthen the skin’s foundation to improve lines you already have and prevent new ones from popping up,” he tells Southern Living. “It is important to find a product that has a stabilized form of retinol that can penetrate into the skin to do its job effectively.”

Here are some dermatologist-recommended retinol night creams that will have you looking more radiant and refreshed when you wake up:

roc wrinkle cream

RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream ($17.95) 


This night cream visibly reduces the look of lines and deep wrinkles while you sleep using pure RoC Retinol, which leaves the skin feeling smooth and more youthful. Powerful anti-aging ingredients work to help firm the skin and aid the skin by repairing it. It's clinically proven to show results in 12 weeks! 

paula's choice retinol night cream

Paula's Choice RESIST 1% Retinol Booster ($52) 


If you struggle with skin discoloration, wrinkles, and fine lines, then this is the moisturizer for you. It offers a unique combination of potent antioxidants, extracts and a just-right amount of retinol to quickly smooth, fill, and firm the skin. It also boosts cell regeneration, stimulates collagen production, refines pore size, and evens the skin tone.  

murad retinol night cream

Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream ($82) 


This moisturizer works alongside your skin's natural repairing cycle to promote faster recovery while you sleep. It's formulated with Retinol Tri-Active Technology Proprietary, which quickly minimizes lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet, Swertia Flower Extract Breakthrough Technology, which helps increase the skin's resilience and boosts firmness and elasticity, and Peptide-rich Red Algae Extract, which also improves firmness and elasticity while soothing the skin. 

clarks botanicals retinol rescue

Clark's Botanicals Retinol Rescue Overnight Cream ($98) 


This rich night cream smooths and brightens your complexion while you sleep using retinol and vitamin E to reduce fine lines, enlarged pores, and dehydration. It also contains jasmine absolute, which helps to balance stressed skin, leaving it more moisturized and supple. 

verso night cream

Verso Night Cream ($100) 


This anti-aging nighttime moisturizer helps your skin feel healthy and look younger with its unique Retinol 8 complex, which features retinyl retinoate, a retinol alternative, to boost collagen production and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while being gentle on your skin. It's also rich in antioxidants to defend your skin against free radicals and repair any existing damage for radiant skin.
