My experience:

I never used to understand the need for a night cream…for me my day moisturizer was enough to moisturize my skin at night. But after attending an event on skin and hair care, and having discussed how day and night creams were different, what kind of night cream should be used in the 20s, 30s, 40s and so on, I decided to add one in my daily skin care routine and see how it works
And I must share with you I was not dissapointed.
I  have been using this product for months now and I can definitely vouch for it specially if you have oily or combination-oily skin…this product is something that you should try.

The cream comes in a white plastic tub with green lid. I do find the tub packaging a little unhygienic but then this problem can be easily countered by washing your hands before use the cream ( which BTW you should always do before you apply anything on your face)
Apart from the tub , another issue on the packaging front is that its very deceiving. The outer carton in which the cream comes is too big while actual tub is smaller so you do get a little shocked at first. The tub also has a false bottom which is again a little disappointing because if you see something like that you do feel cheated and not really sure about the product.
The smell of the cream is soo amazing. It has a very sweet flowery smell like those which you get in baby products, I like it so n problems there.
The consistency of the cream is thick like most night creams but once you apply it, it doesn’t feel heavy at all. when you apply it,the cream gets absorbed really easily and the skin feels moisturized and the best part is that I get up in the morning my skin is soft and supple and  doesn’t feel oily at all.

Pros:
  • even though the consistency looks thick, it is super light on the skin
  • gets absorbed very easily
  • did not break me out
  • a little quantity is enough so one tub will last really long
  • at 170 bucks…its a steal
  • my skin definitely feels better the next day
Cons:
  • the packaging with false bottom and the huge carton is deceiving
  • comes in a tub, which is a little unhygienic
  • has parabens as preservatives
Overall I love this cream, it has worked really well for my skin and I don’t think I am ging to switch to any other night cream for a while.

    Thanks Jennifer…
    This cream actually works better for oily skin…
    I did try a couple ponds cream but they are too heavy for my skin (combination-oily)which ideally makes them perfect for dry skin…so no doubt you found ponds working better for you than this one…
