Best neck creams

Though it may seem excessive to use a separate product on your neck and décolleté, the skin in this area is actually much thinner than that of the face.

So, when this is combined with the fact that it tends to be exposed to the elements and thus free radical damage without the same level of care or SPF, women often find that it ages at a faster rate. Fine lines and pigmentation can appear a lot earlier, so choosing a specifically targeted product is worth the investment.

As gravity and sun exposure take their toll, opting for a product that works on boosting hydration and cell renewal can work wonders.

Here’s our pick of the best neck creams to trial now.

IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Neck Cream

There’s a reason this brand has got something of a cult following. Developed alongside plastic surgeons, its packed with collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid - all of which help to boost the skin’s natural ability to firm, plump, moisturise and stay youthful-looking. With a delicious orange fragrance and shea butter smoothness, it glides onto the skin easily, leaving it feeling silky smooth and supple from the off. A saviour for even the most delicate skin, it’ll nourish away those ageing signs from the inside out.

Clarins Super Restorative Décolleté and Neck Concentrate

If you’re over 45, this cream has been formulated specifically for you and your skin’s needs. Plant-based, it combines organic hiragana and Montpellier rock rose with the soothing silkiness of oats to deliver a cream that evens out skin tone, reduces the appearance of age spots and boosts radiance.

The directions state that you should use this both morning and night to maximise its effect and you should start to see a reduction in fine lines and neck creases within four weeks. We particularly loved the immediate tightening effect of this cream on application, which provides reassurance that it’s actually working. A little goes a long way with this one, so a small dab is all that’s needed to cover the area between the chin and breasts.

This Works Perfect Cleavage Lotion

One of our favourite things about This Works is that they never beat around the bush - there’s no overwhelming jargon, just simple ingredients and an unabashed objective that the products hope to achieve. The Perfect Cleavage lotion is a case in point. Though the claims may be bold, the product has all the right ingredients to deliver. Blending essential oils with various plant extracts such as larch extract, algae and vitamin C, the lotion aims to firm, tighten and brighten the skin around the neck and chest area. This one spread evenly and quickly, sinking into the skin and offering a fresh and bright fragrance. Fine lines and bumps across the décolleté also appeared reduced, particularly after a few uses.
