Today I wanted to share a recent favourite of mine and a somewhat recent addition to my skincare routine! I've always been quite slapdash/lazy when it comes to skincare, but I'm making more of an effort to get into a good routine and find the right products for me. I've been enjoying using this Lierac magnificence day and night cream for the past month or two and I wanted to share my thoughts on it!
First of all - I want to mention the price. It is a heart wrenching £50(ish) and can be purchased online from various online pharmacies that stock a variety of french skincare brands. £50, wow. I can tell you now, that I would never have purchased this myself as I would be too afraid that I wouldn't like it and had wasted £50 but having used this product, I can say that IF (a big IF) I had the budget available, I would be happy to invest in this product. So if you are happy to splash the cash on skincare, this is a good contender for an all around day/night cream.
The consistency is gel like, and it sinks into the skin beautifully without leaving a sticky residue on your skin. The scent is beautiful and lingers on the skin, which I personally like. The packaging is very luxurious and a little of the product goes a fair way, so it will last a long time - I probably use a coin sized amount for the whole face. I love the way this makes my skin feel, smooth and velvet like - and I also love the way it adds a bit of brightness and luminosity to my skin which is a welcomed feature in this winter weather when skin can often look dull and dry!
Overall - if it wasn't for the price, I would repurchase this in a heartbeat. Currently, I have no plans to repurchase when this runs out as for someone with a less than average income, £50 on one item of skincare is rediculous but if I had the luxury of being able to afford high end skincare I would most certainly repurchase!
Could you justify £50 on skincare?
