Hello, my Lovelies!😘
I am constantly in search of new day cream. When I find a good one, I decide that I am going to use it for the rest of my life. But then, before the tub even finishes, I again start looking for another cream!🙈 I know, I know, that’s not good but Dil to bachha hai ji…😜😜 Now, I’ve been using Loreal Paris day cream for almost 5 to 6 weeks and I must say I am impressed with this product. Want to know WHY? Then, keep on reading..
Price: Rs.1350 for 50ml of product with a shelf life of 36 months. However, the product needs to be finished within 12 months of opening the jar.
Packaging: It comes in a heavy red coloured glass jar with a plastic cap which has a shiny metal look. Looks veryyyy classy. I am in love with how my jar looks sitting on the shelf. It is definitely not travel-friendly because the heavy jar is going to weigh down your purse. Also, nothing is mentioned on the jar except for expiry date and a couple of lines for instructions.
Texture: The colour of the cream is creamish white. The best thing about this day cream is its butter soft and smooth formula. One need not rub or massage real hard for it to blend in.
Now, I have combination skin (more inclined towards oily) and this baby knows that. It melts into my skin and gets absorbed in no time. There is no shine or greasiness left post application. But that does not affect the efficacy of its moisturization. My skin stays hydrated whole day long and this cream does not feel heavy. I must tell, it is apt for summers as well.
Fragrance: It has a sweet mild fragrance which is not going to bother the most sensitive noses out there.
Ingredients: An unending list of complex names!
The two ingredients highlighted are:
Pro Xylane is a sugar-protein hybrid made from xylose,which is responsible for defending the skin against water losswhich increases firmness of the skin. 1
Adenosine is capable of boosting the levels of proteins such as Collagen and Elastin in the body. These proteins are known to play a crucial role in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines that appear on our skin as we age. 2
Salicylic acid: I found this familiar name in the list and became happy instantly as this would fight my acne. 👊🏻
Resurface: It definitely smoothes out my skin (not like a primer, though).👍🏻
Correct wrinkles: I don’t have wrinkles on my face yet (apart from few fine lines under my eyes👀) hence I can’t really comment on wrinkle reduction part.
Replump: Yes, my skin feels softer and plumped up.😌
The verdict: I am loving this day cream. 😘 Unlike other creams, it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin but at the same time, it provides enough moisturization that lasts the entire day. After having used it for more than a month now, my skin’s texture has improved and those tiny little bumps have disappeared altogether. I don’t know whether it’s just this cream or my entire skincare routine that’s benefiting me.🤔
A little on the pricier side, I know, but it is worth every single penny. There is an absence of SPF as well but I don’t want to complain. I might not repurchase it immediately ( because I keep getting attracted to new products 🙈) but I shall definitely come back to this, for sure.
Who can try this?
This will suit all skin types. Those looking for a nice day cream which might benefit them in anti-aging (in the long run), can give this a try.
