When it comes to skincare, moms often know best (as with most things in life). My own mother happens to look years younger than she really is, and although we're 30 years apart, it's not uncommon for strangers to insist that we must be sisters. Along with her healthy lifestyle, it's clear that the anti-aging products hiding in her medicine cabinet are getting the job done.

So in a bid to get a head start on following in her footsteps and aging gracefully, I recently asked her to share her favorite anti-aging product, and learned that her current go-to is Murad's Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream. The best part? The fan-favorite product is one of Sephora's Cyber week deals and is currently marked down to $49 (regularly $82).

The powerful anti-aging cream features Murad's signature Retinol Tri-Active Technology, which combines a fast-acting retinoid, a retinol booster, and a time-released retinoid to deliver quick, lasting results. In case you need a refresher, retinol is a common ingredient in anti-aging skincare products that stimulates the renewal of skincare cells—and it's one of the main reasons this formula works so well to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, along with firming and brightening skin.

It also includes peptide-rich red algae to help combat visible signs of aging and tone skin, while swertia flower extract firms skin and protects against future damage. Plus, it comes with a push lid dispenser so you can apply just the right amount to your face without wasting any of the precious product.

According to my mother, the non-greasy cream has a light and fresh consistency. "I can feel it tightening my skin in a good way," she told me.

Shoppers seem to agree, with many noting that the anti-aging cream delivers results, is gentle enough to use on sensitive skin, and is certainly worth the splurge.

"After using this for 2 weeks I've gotten many compliments on how my skin is clearer and have a "glow". I have sensitive skin and this product didn't irritate my skin at all. I'll definitely keep using this product," one reviewer wrote.

Another said, "I have been a Murad enthusiast for nearly a decade now, and I have seldom been disappointed with any of their products. I can safely say that this is the BEST evening cream I have ever used. Ever. The luxurious texture, combined with the refreshing fragrance feels heavenly on the skin after a long day. "

Head to Sephora to try out this mom-approved anti-aging night cream for younger-looking skin.
