What is the difference between a day and night cream?

Super Facialist Retinol Day and Night Cream

If you’re wondering whether you should be applying a day cream AND a night cream, or whether you can rely on one trusty moisturiser, we have some news for you – both creams are formulated with different priorities in-mind.

Day Creams

Super Facialist Hyaluronic Acid Day CreamIf makeup application is pivotal within your morning regime, you’ll understand the importance of finding a reliable moisturiser which sinks into the skin with ease, aiding a seamless application of base product to the face. Day creams allow your pores to breathe due to their lightweight consistency.

For sensitive skin, we recommend applying our brand-new Skin Recovery Day Cream, which combines bioactive ingredients with peptide advanced technology and naturals, including Shea Butter and Aloe Vera.

Another benefit associated with day creams is the addition of SPF or their ability to provide UVA/B protection – a factor which is unrequired during your night-time regime. If you’re searching for a moisturiser for dry skin, our Rose Hydrate Radiance Day Cream provides SPF 15; while our newly launched Hyaluronic Acid Eye Cream also includes SPF 15, ensuring that your under-eyes (one of the most sensitive areas of the face) is protected at all times.

Night Creams

Super Facialist Pure Recovery CreamRecognised by their thicker and richer consistency; night creams tend to include a larger concentration of high-performance ingredients (e.g. Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid). There’s no requirement for SPF protection when your head hits the pillow, making this the perfect opportunity for the skin to ‘recover’.

Due to their slow-absorbing nature, night creams can gradually penetrate the skin throughout the night – moisturising, repairing and rebalancing the complexion.

For those interested in anti-ageing skincare, we recommend applying our Retinol+ Serum, followed by our Retinol+ Night Cream; while our new Hyaluronic Acid Night Cream is an excellent choice for those witnessing the first signs of ageing.

For more sensitive skin types, we recommend either the Rose Hydrate Peaceful Skin Night Cream or our new Pure Overnight Recovery Cream.
