Review : Loreal Youth Code Luminosity Day Cream/Serum

Today I am reviewing Loreal Youth Code Luminosity Day Cream/Serum. I have finished both the serum and the cream as you must have seen in my EMPTIES post. I am doing a combined review as both the products have the same purpose.

What the company says
A precious, light-infusing serum developed for women aged 25-35 to help correct dark spots and reveal more even, youthful looking skin.The Serum is enriched with patented Lumi-GenTM technology to even and illuminate your skin tone.

Immediately, your skin is deeply hydrated. It glows with a new luminosity.
In 1 week, your skin is more even. Correction of different types of dark spots begins. Marks start to fade: dark spots, sun spots and age-spots.
In 1 month, dark spots are visibly reduced. Your skin tone is even and more luminous.

My Skin Type
Normal - Dry

The Good

  • Get an instant glow and sheen on the face after applying the serum/moisturizer
  • Leaves the skin feeling soft and hydrated 
  • Gets well absorbed into the skin 
  • Feels very light on the skin
  • Did lighten some minor spots 
  • Good quality pump
  • Good as a every day moisturizer

The Bad 

  • Did not make the skintone even 
  • Did not make skin luminous, skin just looks glowy after applying the serum/cream
  • Did not make much difference in pigmentation 

The Price 

Cream (50ml) AUD 30 &  Serum (30ml) AUD 35.95

Where to buy 
Target, Kmart, Priceline and select paharmacies

Overall, I think these are good moisturizers with some advantage of lightening the spots. The cream/serum however does not live up to the claim of making skintone even and luminous. I did not see any noticeable difference in my skin. Have you tried this ?  Did it work for you ?
