So, I had been using this cream since more than a couple of weeks now and I can say that I am ready to share my experiences with you! The skin at my age requires a lot of preventive care in terms of aging, since premature aging sets in the 30s if not taken proper care. Since this particular cream is for the skin of age 30+ we can expect targeted action against the usual skin problems that occur in the 30s.
About the Looks!
The cream container comes in a white box which has the name of the brand and collection written on one side which marks the front. The side of the box has all the information related to the cream’s performance, claims, formulation etc. See the picture below. Other side has the directions to use, price, quantity and other information. The jar that contains the cream is made of glass and is quite heavy. The jar is white but the cap is in gold color. The jar comes with another lid inside that prevents the cream from coming into contact with the under side of the cap or prevents it to spill. The cream is in a very pale peach-ish color.

My thoughts about this cream!
The very first thing I noticed about this cream was its scent! It smells really good! Not too bothering, but its quite pleasant and fades away pretty soon after application. The cream is quite light weight, infact when you dip your finger to take some of it out, you will realize that you get quite less of what you thought you would. I would describe this consistency as foamy. Its like foam, it seems quite fluffy but in reality quite thin. I need a little more than usual for my face, actually double the amount.
The cream gets absorbed into the skin relatively fast, which was surprising. If you take a lot at once, it leaves a white cast initially, but later after a little more blending it goes away. I terms of hydration I would say it does not lasts that long. The skin will start to feel dry and dull and you would need to reapply the cream after 3-4 hours.
Before I say anything about how it performs on its claims, I will explain my skin type. I have a combination skin, which gets a little drier in winters. I have no visible fine lines and no acne. I have a bit of melasma on my face. To find out whether it works to correct the uneven skin tone and dark spots, well I have to wait a little longer I guess. Its fairly difficult to see a drastic improvement in that area in just 2 weeks.
The anti aging ingredients must be working well, because I didn’t see any problems with my skin after using it. No break outs or other problems. Its definitely not greasy at all! Since I have no fine lines it seems to be preventing it further! My skin color is fair and the whitening effect is something I can’t see for obvious reasons and more importantly I don’t care!
The best is that this cream comes with SPF 21 PA +++, now that is a fair sun protection in any anti aging cream, I must say! And the UV protection will certainly play a part in skin tone correction at a some extent, however, with just SPF 21, reapplication is a must after 3 hours!!
I find this cream quite suitable for daily use. If hydration was not a problem then I bet, this cream would have been a rock solid hit! I did not get any really fast results on the skin tone and dark spots problems, but I hope in some time, I will! The texture is really awesome and light weight, perfect for summers and the SPF is going to protect you from sun at least for good 3 hours! Oily skin and combination skin can certainly give it a try, but I don’t find it good for dry skin types. Even for combination skin, reapplication will be required.
