We’re just months away from having dry, thirsty winter skin. While we like using rich cream year-round, some wait to shift to thicker products once the temperature drops. When your skin is dry or dehydrated, it tends to be dull and show more signs of aging, so we’ve rounded up some of the best rich creams for both hydration and anti-aging for a two-for-one benefit. As we age, our skin may need a little extra TLC, so an extra-rich cream is just what the doctor ordered. Scroll and find the right one for you.
BL+ The Cream ($85)
What sets BL+ The Cream apart from other rich creams? Simple. Like the rest of the brand’s products, it features bioactive water from Iceland’s Blue Lagoon, which boasts two patented ingredients, microalgae and silica, derived from the unique mineral-rich waters. It enforces firmer, smoother, hydrated, protected skin.
Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream ($280)
If we’re talking about rich creams, we’d be remiss if we didn’t talk about Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream. This luxe product is a celeb favorite for good reason. It’s backed by 30 years of research and innovation and supports cellular renewal to improve the skin’s appearance.
Olay Regenerist Ultra Rich Moisturizer ($29)
Unless you live under a rock, you’ve seen Olay’s glossy red jars on drugstore shelves, signifying it’s part of the brand’s beloved anti-aging Regenerist line. Lucky for those that like a thicker cream, Olay created a moisturizer with a richer formula than the original.
Clinique Smart Clinical Repair Wrinkle Correcting Rich Cream ($68)
Clinique recently launched this new rich cream, perfect for pairing with the serum, which boasts truly impressive results. This wrinkle-fighting cream also helps hydrate, strengthen and nourish skin.
SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Repair ($136)
This formula was created with aging skin in mind. As a patented anti-aging cream, it refills cellular lipids, revitalizes dry skin and improves skin’s fullness, texture and appearance of pores.
Babor Skinovage Moisturizing Cream Rich ($55)
This Babor cream boasts some serious hydration. If you struggle with dehydrated, dry skin, which is a common concern as we age, this cream will feel like a welcome drink of water. It also works in harmony with the skin barrier to help support its health.
Peter Thomas Roth Mega-Rich Intensive Anti-Aging Creme ($120)
In a four-week consumer efficacy study, Peter Thomas Roth found that 96 percent of users agreed their skin felt firmer. Firming isn’t this product’s only benefit—it also evens tone, smooths skin, and combats fine lines and deep wrinkles.
Avène Revitalizing Nourishing Cream Rich ($38)
If you’ve noticed that your skin has grown duller or more sensitive as you’ve aged, this is the cream for you. It’s ultra-rich and restorative, helping to replenish lipids for a hydrated, revitalized, glowing complexion.

This rich cream has a unique, transforming texture that visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It provides 24-hour hydration, firmer skin, and overall radiance.
BareMinerals Butter Drench Restorative Rich Cream ($38)
We don’t know about you, but we’d love to be drenched in butter, so this rich cream sounds very tempting. The buttery texture of the cream is not even its best characteristic. It diminishes signs of aging, smooths skin and intently hydrates.
Tata Harper Crème Riche ($230)
This anti-aging night cream aims to preserve youth by targeting visible signs of aging. It features 16 sources of plumping hydration, 12 sources to minimize the look of wrinkles and 15 sources to smooth and soften skin texture.
