Jack Henry Nightly Detox Oil

best night moisturizer for men

CHECK LOWEST PRICE

What it does: Detoxifies your skin.

Introduction

Nightly detox oil is one of the unique skincare products from Jack Henry.  One of the things that we like about the night oil is it stands by its words.  Also, the product is quite budget-friendly and works on all skin types.  However, it comes in less quantity as compared to Geologie night cream.

Outer appearance

You get a 1-fluid ounce of nightly detox oil in an amber glass dropper bottle.  Amber bottle, works exactly like sunscreen for your skin.  It prevents oil from going rancid due to UV rays.  Another benefit the bottle brings to the table is a dropper applicator with which you can dispense off a small amount of oil.  Therefore, no chance of spilling.

Ingredients & Benefits 

  1. Tea Tree Oil:
  • Removes dead skin cells and bacteria
  • Maintains sebum oil production and detoxifies the skin 
  • Soothes redness and kills harmful bacteria 
  • Adds a pleasant fragrance
  1. Avocado Oil: 
  • Banishes visible signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles
  1. Coconut MCT Oil:
  • Hydrates and nourishes your skin
Pros
  • Adds moisture to the skin
  • No red and puffy face
  • No harsh chemicals
  • Anti-aging
  • Travel-friendly
  • Improves skin appearance
Cons
  • Fragile storage container

Verdict

A perfect men’s skincare product to rejuvenate and replenish the facial skin.  It also makes you look younger and better within just a few weeks of applying.

Geologie Acne & Wrinkle Fighting Night Cream

mens nighttime moisturizer

CHECK LOWEST PRICE

What it does: Reduces fine lines and makes your skin wrinkle-free

Introduction

Geologie is one of the skincare brands closest to our hearts.  We take pride in reviewing their products since they are practical and qualitative.  One of which we got a chance to try our hands-on is this acne & wrinkle-fighting night cream.

Outer appearance

It comes in a 1.7 ounces pump-based bottle (our second-most favorite dispenser after a dropper applicator).  If you have faced challenges like over squeezing or leaking with squeeze tubes, you are going to love the rigid shell packaging, my friend.  It is not leaky and is spill-free.  Press the pump to dispense off the white, opaque cream as much as you require.  

Ingredients & Benefits

  1. Retinol:
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles  
  • Improves the firmness of dull skin  
  • Quickly regenerates skin cells 
  • Boosts collagen production
  1. Hyaluronic Acid: Moisturize the skin
  1. Shea Butter: Rejuvenates the tired face
  1. Coconut Oil: Hydrates dry and flaky skin
  1. Grapeseed Oil: Treats acne and soothes skin

Since the night cream includes Retinol, it may feel heavier on the face while also leaving a greasy residue.  Also, Retinol alone is not advisable for men with sensitive skin, so it contains other ingredients.

Pros
  • Removes fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduction in blemishes
  • Treats acne from the roots
  • Anti-aging
  • Softer and smoother skin
Cons
  • Less quantity

Verdict

It is an overnight cream that can repair oily, dry, combination, normal, and sensitive skin.  Plus, it can remove fine lines and wrinkles. 

Pure Biology Night Cream

best nighttime moisturizer

CHECK LOWEST PRICE

What it does: Energizes your face and eye area.

Pure Biology night cream is formulated to hydrate, restore, and renew your skin. The night cream works amazingly well on the skin, irrespective of gender. In addition, the product is free from harmful chemicals and additives.  

Outer appearance

The night cream comes in a 1.6-ounce plain glass transparent jar.  You can carry it anywhere you travel and apply the cream on the fly.  However, you need to keep the jar away from direct sunlight since it is not amber glass.  The product might go rancid if left exposed to the sunlight.  

Ingredients & Benefits

  1. Retinol: Progress your face towards a youthful look
  1. Hyaluronic Acid: Adds moisture to compensate for the roughness and flakiness caused due to Retinol
  1. Syn-Coll:
  • Supports Retinol to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines from your face
  • Promotes collagen production while restoring elasticity and brightness
  1. Baobab oil and Ceramide 2:  Banish dark circles, puffiness, and bags under your eyes
Pros

  • Long-lasting skin hydration
  • Travel-friendly
  • Anti-aging
  • Face, Neck, and Eyecare
  • Enhance skin complexion
Cons
  • No protection from UV rays
  • Feels heavy on the face

Verdict

In our opinion, Pure Biology is the best nighttime moisturizer for men who remain outdoors most of the time.  Plus, it is the best for men with dehydrated skin since the hydration lasts for 2-days, even if you wash your face.

Clinique Turnaround Overnight Moisturizer

mens cream

CHECK LOWEST PRICE

What it does: Fights dryness

Clinique is one of the popular skincare brands that makes all-natural products without including allergens, irritants, fragrances, and synthetics. 

Outer appearance

The overnight cream comes in a 1.7 ounces glass jar.  Just like Pure Biology night cream’s jar, the container of this night cream is fragile, too.  Nevertheless, you can take it along with you and apply it on the go.  The jar contains a blue transparent gel-based texture.

Ingredients & Benefits

  1. Stearic Acid: Prevents moisture loss due to hot water shower, weather, or insufficient product of natural oils
  1. Squalene: Lightweight moisturizer making skin soft and supple
  1. Salicylic Acid: Deeply cleanses skin pores and removes dead skin cells
  1. Fruits, Seeds, and Herbs Extracts: Nourishing ingredients to restore moisture

Unlike other night creams for men on the list, this overnight cream leaves a greasy residue and takes too long to absorb.  Also, make sure you don’t apply close to your eyes to avoid irritation.

Pros
  • Nourishes and moisturizes your skin
  • Glows skin
  • Restore hydration levels
  • Removes dead skin cells
  • No patchy skin
Cons
  • Product may go rancid
  • Fragile container
  • Not ideal for oily skin

Verdict

If you have dry skin, this one is a boon for you. In our opinion, it is one of the best night creams that you can use daily to fight against puffiness and moisture-less skin.

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate

kiehls night cream

CHECK LOWEST PRICE

What it does: Maintains dryness and excess oil.

Kiehl’s midnight recovery concentrate oil is a great product to make your face look energetic and youthful in the morning.  Though it works amazingly on all skin types, it still is advisable, particularly for thirsty skin.

The best men’s night face moisturizer combined with botanical extracts shows results within just 4-weeks of application.  The results are:

  • Moisturize and soften skin
  • Hydrate and improve texture 
  • Balances skin’s natural moisture barrier
  • Enhances skin tone and brightness
  • Eliminates dry, irritated, and wrinkly skin

Apart from providing nourishment, the skin recovery oil also offers a pleasant smell to sniff all night.

The midnight recovery oil comes in a 1.7-ounce amber glass bottle with a dropper applicator.  The most significant benefit of an amber glass bottle is the product doesn’t go rancid despite being exposed to sun rays.  Another advantage the bottle brings to the table is it doesn’t spill or leak.

Since the product is oil-based, it absorbs in a few seconds without leaving a greasy residue. However, the price is an eyebrow-raising factor since it costs too much for too little.  Nevertheless, we recommend it since it contains all-natural ingredients, such as evening primrose oil, squalene, and lavender essential oil.

Pros
  • Deeply nourishes your skin
  • Restore radiance and enhance skin appearance
  • Manages uneven skin tone
  • Locks in moisture
Cons
  • Expensive
  • Less quantity
  • Some users complain about skin burning issues

Verdict

In our opinion, the night oil repairs your skin when you are sleeping.  It even makes skin supple and smooth to touch like a baby.

Buying Guide for Best Men’s Night Creams

night cream for men

Skin Types

Skin type is the first factor to consider when buying any skincare product (including night cream for men).  Failing to do so may not deliver desired results from the product you purchased.  For your understanding, we have discussed in brief the skin types and their indicators:

  • Dry Skin: Less production of sebum oil leading to less moisture
  • Oily Skin: Overproduction of sebum oil causing shiny skin and greasy residue
  • Combination Skin: Skin changes according to season
  • Sensitive Skin: Easily irritating skin with any additives or synthetics

Ingredients

Once you determine the skin type, you need to check for the ingredients.  They play a crucial role because you don’t want anything harmful or irritative.  Also, consider only natural ingredients in your night cream so that your skin remains healthy.

Product Form

The night cream should weigh less and be fast-absorbing.  You don’t want something that makes your skin too oily or offer a shiny appearance. Besides, the night cream should not clog your skin pores, making it easier for the painful, red monsters to pop out of the skin.  This is possible with the proper selection of night cream forms, i.e., gels, lotions, creams,  and serums.

Quality

Quality matters a lot in everything, and when it comes to skincare- it is a top priority.  Many new brands deliver quality results while popular brands sometimes fail, which is why you must look for whether the product is dermatologist tested or clinically proven.

Price

Price is another factor that we take into consideration when selecting any skincare products.  It’s because you don’t want any product that forces you to break your banks.  That’s one of the reasons we compare and select budget-friendly products.

Since you know the number of factors to consider when buying night creams for men, you must also know the different types.  So when you buy, you know where you are investing your money.

Types of Night Creams for Men

men's night face cream

Your investment in night cream indicates you want to resolve some skin-related issues.  And since you know the issue(s), you must also know which one is compatible.

Anti-aging Night Cream

As the name says, this men’s night cream works specifically to hide age spots by boosting the cell renewal process and increasing collagen production.  This way, the anti-aging cream ensures a solution for the cause of skin aging.

Anti-acne Night Cream

Anti-acne night creams for men regulate the production of sebum oils and cleanses the skin pores so that they won’t pop out painful acne.  

Multipurpose

You may also want a multipurpose product for your skin since you have seen the night creams catering to a single purpose.  For instance, parched skin with signs of aging will require hydrating and rejuvenating night cream.  On the other hand, if you have acne-prone and oily skin, you can try soothing natural oil regulatory treatment.

Moisturizers

The main task of moisturizers is to seal the water on the skin’s surface. Thus, it ensures ample hydration and prevents moisture-less skin.  Moreover, the effective results last for quite a long time, which also helps reduce acne and blackheads.

Now that you know everything about night creams, we have tried covering the frequently asked ones in the section below if you still have questions.

FAQs:

1. Which night cream is the best for men?

According to us, all of them are the best men’s night creams, but we had a fantastic experience with Brickell, Jack Henry, and Geologie. All three match our expectations and are worth your investment.

2. Do men need a night cream?

Adding night cream to the grooming routine is essential for men. The reason being men stay outdoors most of the time, which is why their skin remains prone to pollutants and stressors. Night cream quickly repairs your skin since you would not be touching your face frequently, so there will be no transfer of bacteria.

3. Day cream vs. night cream: which is better?

Night cream repairs the skin much faster than day creams. You don’t touch your face frequently, which is another advantage of using a night cream as the cream gets time to absorb. Plus, the best night creams tend to be thicker than daytime counterparts. On the other hand, day creams do more tasks than night creams and are slower than the later ones.

Conclusion

The night cream is made to heal the skin from daily environmental pollutants. As a result, they soothe skin if prone to acne and inflammation. Moreover, the night cream even helps fight skin aging signs.  Therefore, it becomes mandatory for every man to use a night cream.  

You can also share your selected night cream with the reason and its effective results. Furthermore, it will be helpful to others with the same skin types or concerns since we will mention them in our blogs.  Lastly, do share the information with your near and dear ones.
