10 Best Cruelty Free Night Cream

Home » Cruelty Free Skincare » Night Cream

Taking care of mature skin is essential. Once you cross a particular age bracket, your skin renewal process slows down. Dead skin starts layering up. Regular moisturizers that you have been loving for many years, fail to satiate the needs of your skin.

Everyone starts noticing the dullness, blemishes, and appearance of fine lines. So here are some of the best cruelty free night cream. There are also vegan and affordable drugstore picks.

10 Best Cruelty Free Night Cream

Has your forehead, sides of the nose, delicate eye skin, and smile lines suddenly become severely dry and patchy? Unless you make efforts to reverse these signs of aging, it’ll damage your skin beyond repair. What should you do?

The best way to cut this episode of premature aging from your life is to opt for a seriously effective night cream. Your night cream should contain some highly effective actives such as retinol or niacinamide.

However, these active ingredients often come from non-vegan sources and also from non-cruelty-free brands. But we got you covered. Here are 10 of the best night creams that actually work and are also cruelty-free!


    • Apply the cream on the neck too alongside your face. Often, the neck is skipped or missed! Been there, done that
    • A night cream is supposed to be heavier than a day cream. So do keep this in mind.
    • Products marked (V) are vegan and free of animals by-products.

Let’s get started!

1. PÜR Get A Lift Age-Defying Moisturizer (V)

Got tired-looking and dehydrated skin? Let PUR Age-Defying Moisturizer help you! This cruelty-free and vegan moisturizer reduces dullness and provides radiant & healthy skin.

It is perfect to get started on this if you’re in your thirties. That doesn’t mean it is not for you if you are in your forties, fifties, sixties, or above. It works for sagging, tightening, and lifting the skin. So a great all-rounder at a decent price.
