Every night, when you grab your eight hours of shut-eye your skin is putting in work. Repairing and regenerating, but also losing moisture. That’s why nighttime skin care is critical. But the days of slathering on thick night creams are over — now it’s all about serums and facial oils.  

We tried Moonlit Skincare’s Midnight Shift Overnight Facial Oil ($34) and fell in love with the lavender scent. Made in Bali with a base of jojoba and sunflower oil, Midnight Shift was easily absorbed and didn’t stain our pillowcase. It also contains grapeseed oil — which boosts collagen — as well as ginseng and papaya to improve cell turnover. The company promises it won’t clog pores or cause break-outs. And you can rest easy that there are no sulfates, parabens, fillers, synthetic fragrances, PEGs, or mineral oils. 

If you really want to take your nighttime skincare game to the next level then we strongly suggest investing in a silk pillowcase. Besides feeling heavenly on the skin, sleeping on silk is said to help prevent wrinkles, improve break-outs and help skin stay more hydrated. Moonlit sells a gorgeous silk pillowcase ($49) made of 100% Mulberry Silk in midnight blue or ivory. Sweet dreams!
