Yes, yes, yes...another product review from my much loved VanityTrove samples! Boy do I sound like a broken record, always mentioning VanityTrove, VanityTrove, VanityTrove...ugh! I promise that I am nearly about done with product reviews from that beauty box...well, do take note the key word is nearly.
Today I will be giving my thoughts on Lierac Coherence Day & Night Lifting Cream Anti Wrinkle & Firming...is that a mouthful or what?! I only use this cream at night as it has no SPF and I have been taking the extra care about sun block recently. I swear I am getting old, I was never bothered with SPF, sunblock and the likes before this. But as the big 4-0 is drawing closer than ever, I am trying to be wiser? in my skin care routine which I personally found to be quite an interesting journey by itself.
What this product claims to do (from VanityTrove website):
Corrects the wrinkles and firms up the skin.It contains 4% of collagen III accelerating vectors, and Hyaluronic Acid with recognized anti-wrinkles and filling properties.Vitamins C, E, B5 and B6 tone and firm up the skin, and the nourishing protective and anti-dehydrating complex brings hydration and suppleness.The skin is firmed up, wrinkles are reduced.
Mind you, anything that is anti-ageing is more than welcome in my book. Bloody hell, my face and neck definitely needs it these days. So this cream should have been heaven sent, right? Well, unfortunately I would have to say no, not really.
I've used this cream every night for nearly 2 weeks and the only effect that I really noticed was for the first time after a very long time, my face looks slightly oily when I wake up in the morning. The was no differences in my skin, it is not any softer, no plumping, no firming, no reduction of fine lines, just oily. Most anti-ageing products would have shown at least some minor differences within a week, some within a few days but this cream just did not quite do it for me.
This cream also takes slightly longer to work it into my skin. I need to continue massaging it for some time for it to be absorbed or it'll leave a tacky residue on my face. I have a normal to dry skin so I rarely have this problem with most creams. Another downside for me was the fact it has a very strong floral smell which reminds me of my grandmum's old white chalk face powder.
I am in no way saying nayy to Lierac face cream but it just didn't wow'ed me, if you get what I mean. I don't mind using it if I ran out of my other night creams but it is certainly not one of my favourite. Definitely will not be purchasing the full size once I finish the sample...if I ever finish the sample.
Lierac Coherence Day & Night Lifting Cream Anti Wrinkle & Firming is retailing at MYR300.00 for 50ml.
