When it comes to having great skin, we love products that can work round the clock. Having a beauty product with ingredients that work while you sleep is worth its weight in gold. Is there nothing better than waking up each morning with better skin?

There’s a night oil on Amazon that can work its magic while you sleep. Touted as the “next-generation retinol oil” that plumps skin while reducing redness, the appearance of pores and wrinkles, it’s comprised of Blue Tansy and German Chamomile essential oils and is gentle enough for sensitive skin. The trans-retinol wards off wrinkles and fine lines while the avocado seed oil plumps skin.

Even better, several Simplemost editors are die-hard fans of Sunday Riley’s Luna Night Oil, and we can confirm that it’s worth every penny.

Sunday Riley Luna works overnight to even skin tone, combat dryness and brighten skin. The company claims in as little as four weeks you’ll notice signs of aging minimizing, such as fine lines and wrinkles, and that the formula promotes skin elasticity and radiance and is gentle enough for sensitive skin. It’s currently rated the No. 1 Face Oil in the U.S., according to the N.P.D. Group.

We’re not surprised to hear it’s the top face oil in the country. Those of us at Simplemost have tried it have our own rave reviews, too. I have religiously used Luna, and it has evened out my skin tone. One of our editors says Luna made her skin look just as glowy as it was when she was pregnant. And for yet another Simplemost editor, Luna became a fast favorite because most retinols have been too harsh for her skin, but Luna’s moisturizing power combined with the gentler retinoids have made it a go-to nighttime drink for her skin. It never leaves her with a breakout or retinol burn in the morning, nor does it make her T-zone extra oily. What’s not to love?

In a clinical trial, 96% of women felt their skin looked brighter and more radiant and 92% felt their skin tone looked more even, calmer and smoother.

To use, massage three to four drops of Sunday Riley Luna to clean, dry skin and watch as the blue oil turns clear.

Do note that Sunday Riley Luna hasn’t been approved for use during pregnancy, so pregnant women will want to stay away.
