Texture & Scent:


This night cream is slightly thinner than your usual night creams, so it spreads unto your skin smoothly! :D There's a slight cooling sensation when you apply this (hint: alcohol!). It absorbs into your skin almost instantly without any stickiness! It has a delicate scent similar to the other products in this line! :D

Packaging:


The tube i have is a sample. The real thing comes in a glass jar, which i don't really like because of hygiene issues!

Time Test:
This night cream sinks in almost immediately! My face feels moisturized the entire night! :D

Price & Availability:
This cleanser is priced at RM290 (approx. US$78.37) and should be available at all Lancome counters in South Asia.

Usage:
I use this mainly with the Essence & Patch treatment from this line. I also sometimes apply this to my whole face as a night cream! :)


My $0.02:

I was given a couple of samples of this to try out. Actually i have been thinking about buying a full jar of this one for the longest time ever! It really does brightens your skin within days, and it does a good job at moisturizing too!!

But the thing is, i can almost FEEL the alcohol going into my skin with this one! Given that it hasn't broke me out yet, my skin almost always react funny after using stuff with high alcohol content (like the Biotherm Aquasource moisturizer) after awhile!

So, conclusion is, i probably will not repurchase this once my samples run out, just because i'm paranoid to be on the safe side :P
