Retinol might just be the holy grail of skincare ingredients. It not only clears your skin of build-up in your pores, but also can help build up your collagen to thicken your skin, erase fine lines, and even out skin tone. Dr. Shereene Idriss, a New York-based dermatologist, recommends using retinol creams at night after cleansing your skin from the day’s impurities.

Dr. Idriss also recommends introducing retinol into your beauty routine slowly, but surely. “Start with one night a week and see to see how your skin reacts before adding a second night a week and so forth,” says Dr. Idriss. “If you find yourself to be extremely sensitive, then apply your moisturizer before applying your retinol in order to make it a little bit less effective and less irritating.”

Ahead, shop a few retinol night creams to get you started on your path to dream skin.

The Dermatologist’s Pick

Retinol 0.5 Refining Night Cream



“SkinCeuticals has three different strengths, making it super easy to start low and gradual,” explains Dr. Idriss. Start with a lower dose if you’re nervous about introducing retinol or a larger one if you’re used to the ingredient. 

The Dermatologist’s Pick

Renewal Retinol

Alastin Skincare


“Alastin has a great retinol that tends to be less irritating than most,” says Dr. Idriss. Ideal for those with sensitive skin who want to try retinol, but are worried it might be too strong. 

The Powerful Option

Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream



This cream includes flower and red algae extract that aid the retinol in reducing the appearance of fine lines. It’s recommended to use sparsely in the summer and more frequently in the winter. 

The Wrinkle Fighter

Retinol Correxion Max Daily Hydration Crème



The drugstore icon is a magic potion in a bottle. The power of hyaluronic acid works overtime to fight wrinkles, plump the skin, and add moisture. The formula is also lightweight, so it won’t clog pores and lead to breakouts. 

The Brightener

Advanced Retinol Intensive Night Moisturizer



Go to sleep and wake up with no fine lines, hydrated skin, and a beautiful morning glow. This tube works overtime to moisturize and brighten dull and depleted skin.
