There's a common misconception about skin care we'd like to put to rest right now: It has to be expensive to work. From eye creams to moisturizers, we plunk down a pretty penny, but don't always see results. Turns out, some of the best-performing products are hiding in your local drugstore — and night cream is one of them. Which reigns supreme? We'll turn to Rank & Style for the answer.
The site uses customer reviews, editors' picks, and overall buzz to figure out which products are going to work the hardest for you without bruising your bank account. Consider its authors beauty lovers with a penchant for math. After crunching the numbers, Rank & Style has named Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Cream the champion.
Olay's night cream wins for a few reasons. Not only is it a top pick among editors, it's also garnered some pretty stellar user reviews. On Soap.com, user kali_kastaway said: "This product helps my skin regain its softness, and I feel like it repairs the damage that occurs during the day. It even has a positive effect on my adult acne, when blemishes do erupt." A well-moisturized face equals a younger-looking face, so it makes sense that this hydrating cream also helps with anti-aging.
The next time you're poking around your drugstore, don't skip the skin-care aisle. You may be surprised with the quality you find there. Remember: Just because it's expensive, doesn't mean it's good. That's our new mantra.
Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Cream, $19.79, available at Soap.com.
