There's nothing better than skin care that delivers on its promised results, except when it visibly improves your complexion while you sleep. Night creams are a tried and true beauty staple that comes through for your skin without fancy bells and whistles. But not all are created equal; one contender that gives the phrase "beauty sleep" a new meaning is this vitamin C night cream with potent anti-aging properties.

The hero ingredient in the Derma E Vitamin C Intense Night Cream (Buy It, $16, was $23,, vitamin C is an antioxidant that brightens the skin and reduces dark spots, sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles. Often found in serums, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Kavita Mariwalla tells InStyle that a night cream is also an effective way to apply the ingredient. "The idea behind this is that you scavenge away the free radicals that occur during the day from ultraviolet exposure and pollution."

In addition to vitamin C, the cream contains rooibos, which according to Dr. Mariwalla is a highly underrated ingredient. "It has been used in pediatric populations for eczema and is a natural plant-derived ingredient that repairs the skin barrier and makes it feel more hydrated. It is also a very good antioxidant," she notes. 

The cream is topped off with probiotics. These team up with the rooibos in the formula to replenish the skin's natural barrier, which assists the vitamin C with new cell turnover, leading to skin that looks firm and radiant.
