Lancôme Absolue Revitalizing & Brightening Soft Cream is an ultra-luxe and utterly sublime face cream the is a delight to the senses and the skin. It undergoes an extraordinary metamorphosis as the thick and richly hydrating cream gives way to a fast absorbing serum-like lotion as it melts into the skin, and then the texture thickens up, but it leaves behind no greasy residue. It is an experiential cream that really must be tried to be fully appreciated. It leaves my normal/combination skin deeply hydrated, soft, supple, luminous and silky smooth. After several weeks of use, I noticed that it softened the appearance of my fine lines, and at no time did it cause my skin to breakout. It has a truly lovely light floral aroma, but it is neither overpowering, nor long lasting. This is a very special cream, and it is definitely worthy of your attention.
According to Lancôme,
A soft cream facial moisturizer with a unique, transforming texture that visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles, while rejuvenating skin with firmness, radiance and 24-hour hydration.
Made with an exclusive blend of Grand Rose Extracts, this indulgent cream visibly revitalizes skin with moisture, firmness and plumpness. Its unique texture creates a sensorial journey as it transforms ‒ from a thick hydrating cream, to a thin serum-like lotion, to a thick layer plumping skin with moisture. Wrinkles and fine lines appear diminished for younger-looking, smooth skin that is brighter, radiant, toned and more even. Skin surface cell renewal is improved and skin's moisture barrier is protected.
Directions: Use daily, in the morning and/or at night.
• Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin.
• Upon application, the cream has a thick texture and feels creamy, rich and nourishing.
• As the cream is blended, its texture transforms into a thin, serum-like lotion that feels fresh and nourishing as it easily absorbs into the skin.
• As the cream is absorbed, the texture thickens and skin feels even, plumped with moisture and a silky, radiant finish. A dewy, nurtured look is revealed without leaving skin oily, greasy or shiny and without pilling.
• Suitable for sensitive skin. Tested under dermatological control.
