Kiehl’s’ Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream (HK$520/50ml) is said to restore suppleness to the face. The richly textured night creamcombines two powerhouse ingredients, the restorative Korean red ginseng root and New Zealand manuka honey.

We were happy to find that Fresh’s Peony Brightening Night Treatment Mask (HK$680/100ml), derived from peony and licorice root extracts, lightened some of our dark spots. As wonderful as the effects are, however, it is not recommended that you use the mask more than twice a week.

If most night creams are not moisturising enough for you, L’Occitane’s Divine Harmony (HK$1,500/50ml) will do the trick. Extracts from Jania Rubens, a red, vegetal coral, and oils from immortelle millésimée, a flower with antioxidant properties, penetrate the skin and soften expression lines.

South Korean brand Amorepacific’s Luminous Effect Brightening Creme (HK$1,800/50ml) is exclusive to Hong Kong. The main ingredient is Bright – T Ferment, which is extracted from green tea fermented over a long period. The cream helps reduce pigmenta­tion and prevent discolouration.
