Lancôme is known for its luxe, innovative formulas with results-driven, often clinically-tested ingredients. The question is not whether you need a Lancôme moisturizer in your routine, it’s which one. The brand offers more than ten day and night creams that help target a variety of skin concerns. Here, we’re highlighting five of our favorites and breaking down what skin concerns they’re each designed for. Read on to find your match.
Best for: Dry and sensitive skin types
Whether you’re new to the moisturizer category and are looking for a straightforward option or are in need of a lightweight cream for parched skin, Hydra Zen is a great pick. It works to hydrate skin for up to 24 hours, calm redness and promote a smoother complexion. Over time, skin will look more radiant and supple. And priced at less than $50 MSRP, it’s the perfect entry into the brand’s lineup.
Best for: Sun protection
For a day cream that’s enriched with antioxidants and provides sun protection, Bienfait is up for the job. It contains vitamins E, B5 and Cg (a derivative of vitamin C) and the formula hydrates and helps protect skin’s surface against environmental damage, plus SPF 30 coverage. The non-greasy, non-comedogenic formula gives skin a soft feel and layers well under makeup.
Best for: Fighting dark spots and minimizing the appearance of premature aging
If dark spots are a top skin concern, add this cream to your cart. It contains linseed exact and LHA (lipo-hydroxy acid) and visibly targets dark spots , among other signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity. The addition of SPF 30 also helps provide additional dark spot prevention.
Best for: Mature skin types
With its gold packaging and Grand rose extract-infused formula, this is arguably Lancôme’s most luxe option. At $222 MSRP, it’s a splurge to be sure, but the results make it a worthwhile indulgence. It helps visibly minimize fine lines and wrinkles, firm and tighten, smooth texture, even tone and moisturize. You’ll start seeing results after just one week with daily use.
Best for: Smoothing out uneven skin texture
If you want to wake up looking refreshed no matter how much sleep you actually got, you need this night cream in your arsenal. The gel-to-oil formula helps correct skin, refine skin texture, minimize the appearance of pores and provide hydration. In the morning, skin is smooth and looks rejuvenated.
