Product Description:

Actual Product Pic:

This is a SAMPLE.

Texture & Scent:

This night cream is a little more solid than your usual creams, but it spreads with moderate ease. I really like how quickly it sinks into my skin! It has a light flowery scent that i'm ok with! :)


The tube i have is a sample. The real thing looks kinda the same too! As usual i wished this came in a bottle or something because its more hygienic that way!

Time Test:
This night cream kept my face hydrated throughout the night! :D I can see the results really soon - just after one use, my face is really soft and plump! With continued use, it minimized the fine lines around my mouth!

Price & Availability:
This night cream is priced at RM290 (approx. US$78.38), which is verrrrrrry expensive!! lol! This should be available at most Lancome counters. It's also available for sale on for US$72.50, and at for US$65.

I used to use this every other day when i was in India, but now that i'm back in Malaysia and always hiding in an air-conditioned room, i use this daily! :D

My $0.02:

Yesterday i reviewed the eye cream from this range, so i thought i'll post the review for the night cream as well, so here it is! :D

I finally finished using my Biotherm Aquasource non-stop moisturizer and decided to give this a try, since i have two samples from the Gift with Purchases i got! And boy am i glad that i did try them out!! :D

I love how this one isn't very heavy despite it being a cream! It sinks in almost immediately with no sticky feeling behind! The best part is that it really works beautifully! It moisturizes really well, makes my skin so soft, and it diminished the laugh lines around my mouth!! Me love!!! :D

My only gripe for this one is that it is sooo expensive! I know a jar should last me at least half year with daily usage, but it's still pretty steep to fork out almost three hundred bucks at one go! Ouch!

So i'm prayingggggggggg very harrrrrrrrrrd that there are creams out there that are somewhat similar to this one but cheaper! Otherwise i'll have no choice but to repurchase this! lol! :P

  1. Yet another really helpful review!! Thanks!

    I have a sample of the day cream of this, not used it yet as I'm still nowhere near through my full size Lancome Aqua Fusion moisturiser (aren't their jars humongous?). I think Hydra Zen is better than the Aqua Fusion through.
    For night time I use Elizabeth Arden good night sleep cream, I love it, a lot, but have been using it continuously for at least 4 years now. Will be nice to venture out a bit now and sample other night creams. :)

  2. You're most welcome girl!! :D

    Oh, you just reminded me to use the day cream version of this one! :D i might once i start working, since i will be in an air conditioned room like almost 24 hours! hahaha! :D

    Yeah i totally agree with Lancome and their huge jars of moisturizers! lol!!

  3. I know what you mean about wishing something this good could come in cheaper form! :) goodluck, let us know if you found one!

  4. Yalor!! I'm going to try the H20+ next!! Hopefully that one works!! :D

  5. wah, the price tag. *faint*
    I heard their serum is also very expensive. *_*

  6. Haha... yalah!! The price is making me think twice about buying lor!! But one jar can last quite long lah... :P

    I never tried their serum before... but yeah, i think should be not cheap also... :P :P

  7. I used to use the Primordiale Nuit (blue tub) but haven't tried this one. I never found a substitute for Primordiale Nuit - spent too much money trying to when I could have just bought it LOL... Shall take a look at this one!

  8. Oh? I never noticed there was a blue tub!! hehehe!! :D Yeah go give this one a try!! Hopefully this is as good as the blue one! :D
