Today I'm going to review the L'Oreal Paris White Perfect Day & Night cream. Different skin types requires different products, I've got really sensitive skin and when a product suits my skin type, I stick to it. L'Oreal white perfect cream is one of them. When I first bought the day cream I was least concerned about the 'whitening' part, all I wanted was a cream that would not make my face swell like a bubble fish.
The cream comes in a cardboard box which is more like a FAQ-board. All the information is stated on it including the ingredients. Inside the cardboard, is a quite heavy round jar. The packaging is sturdy and also contains an inner lid, which makes the jar travel friendly.
You get 50ml cream in the jar. It claims that the texture of the cream is light and non-greasy. In my opinion the texture is creamy but the consistency is quite thick which makes you feel like it's going to be difficult blending it in. But the cream absorbs easily into the skin and it does not make my skin greasy at all. But make sure to apply a little amount of the cream or you'll end up looking like a long-lost-relative of Edward Cullen, and by that I mean it could leave a white cast on the face if applied too much. (you don't want to end up looking like a ghost or a vampire, do you?)
I apply this cream 15-20 minutes before going out, this way it gives time to settle down into the skin. I must say that it provides immediate radiance and glowy effect to the face, which I love. The cream does not feel heavy on the skin at all and works well on the dry patches of my face.
It is a moisturizer and a sunscreen, but it contains only 17SPF. It might be enough for you but I prefer using moisturizers with 30+ SPF. I've been using these creams for more than a year now and I can say that it has noticeably reduced the dark spots and made my skin tone even. Like I said before, I wasn't really concerned with the whitening part so I did not really pay attention to whether it made me 'snow whiter' or not. Also,I used to spend hours in the sun, so I don't think any cream could protect my skin from that much sunlight.
I agree with what they claim about the texture of the night cream, it is fresh and non greasy. The consistency is gel like and absorbs instantly into the skin. Unlike the day cream, the night cream is bluish in color. I like how they did white-color for the day, and blue for the night. When I apply it onto my face I feel an instant soothing effect, like when you apply a peppermint spray to your feet and they feel light and fresh (yes, I compared my face to my feet,heh).
I've used quite a lot of night creams but this one is the best so far. It feels light on the face and again, you only need a pea sized amount. It's not greasy but a little is enough to cover your entire face.
Both, the day and the night cream, smells sweet but it does not bother me that much cause the smell lasts for about 10 minutes.
I kinda like the night cream better than the day cream, mostly because of the soothing effect that it has on the skin and it feels more lighter than the day cream.

Would I repurchase it? Price?
I got both the creams for about 1700rs ($17). Yes, definitely going to use it for as long as I can't find an alternative to this cream.
