A $13 Night Cream That Rejuvenated My Dry Skin Better Than Anything Else
By Jami Rubin |
My worst skin nightmare is trying to manage it when it’s dry and flaky, which is exactly what I was dealing with earlier this summer. Liquid foundation went on unevenly, pressed powder revealed where problem areas were, and no exfoliating or multi-masking product could save me. Not even my go-to daily moisturizer was working. That’s when I came upon Neutrogena's Deep Moisture Night Cream, and for $13, I had nothing to lose.

I went home that night and, after removing my makeup and washing my face, I applied the cream before bed. The super-thick formula didn't feel sticky or greasy, went on smoothly, and just a small amount on my fingertip covered my face and neck. Even better, it also felt light on my face and absorbed into my skin almost instantly.
The cream didn’t clog my pores or leave me with a shiny face like I've known other deep moisturizers to do in the past; rather, I woke up in the morning and could immediately see the difference after only one use. My skin looked and felt softer and hydrated, and the more severely dry spots (most notably on my nose) weren’t nearly as flaky as the day before.

After incorporating Neutrogena’s Deep Moisture Night Cream into my summer skincare routine for a few weeks, I can truly say that this product has become my skin savior. I can now apply makeup more smoothly without having to worry about dry patches, and yet my skin is never oily or riddled with breakouts (my other skin nightmare).
And don't let the size of the bottle fool you—while it seems to be on the smaller side at first glance, it will definitely be a while before you have to pick up another one. And trust me, I will definitely be picking up another one.
