Day cream in an imperative part of skin care routine. It invigorates the skin, and gives it energy to tackle with daily attacks of pollution, dust, sun and stress. So it is very important that you invest in a good day cream that does not only provide nourishment but also shield your skin. With the same hopes I bought L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Youth Boosting Cream Day, read on to know how many of them have been met.
My Skin Type: Combination to oily, chin area is acne prone.
My Take on ‘L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Youth Boosting Cream Day’
L’Oreal youth code day cream comes in a square shaped glass tub. The packaging looks classy but if you will hold the tub in your hands you would be able to feel the heaviness of the glass. It is because of this weight that I never carry this cream in my handbag. It is spill-proof though, also has an extra capping layer between the outer screw cap and tub.
The cream is white in color, and bears a very heavy texture. Owing to this heaviness in texture, it goes little easy on the application front. Had it been little runny, I would not have been able to massage it into the skin. The almost odorless quality makes it tolerable for everyone.
For the application part, I apply it in the morning on clean face and neck. After taking out the cream using forefinger, I dot it all over the face and neck only to massage it in circular motions. It does not immediately sink into the skin so I need to spend a good 30-40 seconds on massage, even after doing so it does not immediately stop feeling sticky but the feel subsides in around one hour. I do not mind enduring the stickiness for this short duration as long as it does not make my skin shine.
I do like to mention that I had to take a short break while I was using this cream because it caused acne on the chin area. So I gave my skin ample time to get accustomed to the ingredients of youth code cream, and reprieve from those painful zits before using it again.
It makes the skin hydrated and moisturized, giving it a healthy glow. To vindicate the anti-ageing effects it does require us to religiously follow an application routine for at least 1.5 months. I am not sure if it would give outstanding results for deep lines but it does seem to have the ability of working on early signs of ageing.
Being a day cream, I expected it to have at least 15 SPF but sadly it does not have any. So I need to slather up another layer of sun protection cream on an already sticky surface. Working on a sticky surface feels little irritated so many a times I skip the SPF part. Well, skipping SPF is not a good thing, and you should not be doing that.
