What were your first impressions of the Day Cream?
Upon opening the glass jar, a lightly fragranced cream seem to be quite thick as it wasn’t of a runny composition to the extent that the jar can be tipped upside down and there wouldn’t be any movement in the cream unless the jar was tapped.

How did you find the application and use of the Day Cream?
Even though at first glance, the cream appeared to be thick and heavy, once a small dab was applied to the face, it was obvious that the cream is very light and only a small amount would be required.  It was also remarkable that once the cream is applied to the face, it didn’t leave an oily heavy residue and that it was absorbed into the skin quite rapidly.  As it is quite light, this cream can be used under a sunblock and standard makeup (foundation, power and blush) without giving the oily look at the end of the day.

The instant that the cream is applied to the face, it moisturise and softens the skin.  It works wonders on tired puffy eyes that it tightens/uplift saggy skin.  It almost feels like drinking refreshingly cold water after a workout at the gym as the skin feels so invigorating.

How did you find the texture and smell of the Day Cream?
The soufflé soft cream is light on the finger and smells of a floral powder and once smooth on the skin, it is instantly absorbed within seconds without leaving being oily.

Did you notice any benefits from using this Day Cream as opposed to other creams you have used in the past?

As it isn’t oily, it can definitely be used as a moisturise base on a daily basis.  It’s great benefit is that it does soften the skin and lift tired bags under the eyes.  If wrinkles are a sign of aging then this cream lifts and smoothes the skin, thus, it is considered as an anti-aging cream as it does reduce the signs of aging.  However, if anti-aging is described as not appearing aged and your appearance remains fix at a moment in time then this cream would not be considered as anti-aging as the lines of aging is only reduced and dissipated.

If Price would be of no concern, would you purchase this Day Cream for yourself in the future?
In the scheme of anti-aging product cost, this product isn’t costly and could easily be considered as a standard moisturiser and would be priced in the same category.  I would definitely purchase this moisturiser again as it is a very good based mosituriser.

Out of five, what star rating would you give this Day Cream based on your experience with it?
My skin is usually very sensitive and many products would cause my face to breakout due it’s oily composition, this cream on the other hand, did not have that result and I would continue to use the product on a daily basis.  Therefore I would give this 4 Stars as it is priced well and is a great moisturiser.

I liked that it was packaged simply in a single box. It was in a simple glass jar that is small enough to fit on my little shelf. Also because it’s glass, I can put it in the recycle bin without searching for the recyclable symbol. Finally the jar was completely full. I was a little disappointed that it didn’t have an SPF rating, though.

How did you find the application and use of the Day Cream?
It was very easy to apply and soaked into my face rapidly, without leaving a greasy feel behind. I also found it to be a very good foundation for mineral makeup. It didn’t cause the base powder to clump up.
It was light and smooth, with a slight pleasant fragrance that dissipated quickly.

For all that it didn’t leave a greasy feel, I was still conscious of it moisturising my skin all day, and didn’t feel the need to constantly reapply which I have done with other more expensive brands.

If Price would be of no concern, would you purchase this Day Cream for yourself in the future?
On the contrary, I think if price were a concern, this is the product I would go for especially in the winter. It’s only an average sized jar, but it lasts well as only a little bit is required.

Out of five, what star rating would you give this Day Cream based on your experience with it?
I would give this a 3.5 out of 5 mainly because of the lack of an SPF rating, which is something I always look for in a day cream.
