Armed with only a fist full of money and a desperate desire to turn back the clock we at Independent Woman have been turning our attention to night creams. Loathed by some, loved by others, we bring you our four of the best.

Soap and Glory Night in Shining Armour Cream

Perfectly packaged and smelling deliciously of citrus there's more to this night cream than meets the eye. Containing supertide complex, Soap and Glory's gravity defying cream brightens and hydrates as it firms and restores. Great for restoring elasticity and reducing the appearance of wrinkles the price isn't too bad either. Plump, firm, grease free skin awaits!

Priced at €17.99, available from Boots.

Vichy's Liftactiv Retinol HA

Taking inspiration from the latest cosmetic procedures the cream contains concentrated hyaluronic acid to plump, glycerin to hydrate and shea butter to soothe. Designed to combat three different types of wrinkles the light cream works a treat at evening out skin tone and reducing the appearance of fines lines.

Priced at €34 available from pharmacies nationwide.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream

Those of you with an eye on the clock might try Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream by Elemis. Clinically proven to help increase oxygen levels in the skin, the moisture rich cream is designed to delay the signs of premature aging by helping the regeneration process. Packed with skin helpers like marine algae to boost oxygen, avocado to nourish and wheat germ to protect - 28 days is all it takes to see oxygen levels increase by up to 41%.

Priced at €126 available from selected salons.

Dr Nick Lowe The Secret Is Out Lift & Repair Night Cream

Easily absorbed, wonderfully creamy and great for repairs The Secret Is Out may be a bold claim but it does much to help with free radical damage. Working on the principle that cell renewal increases at night the cream is loaded with sodium hyaluronate for hydration, hexapeptine 9 to regenerate and pomegranate to revitalise and lift. Younger, fresher and more radiant skin by morning, who can argue with that?

Available from Boots, priced at €39.99
