PROS
-Much richer in texture since it is a night cream
-Product can last for a longer period of time because of its consistency
-It has an eco-friendly refill option. The jar has two parts: the container and the cream which is in another pod. Once you have finished the product, you can just buy the refill pod instead of the entire jar and be able to save some money!
-Perfect for the drier winter seasons because it really does leave your skin feeling moist
-The next morning, my face just feels more bouncy and alive
 
CONS
-It needs more working in order to fully absorbs into the skin and can feel very heavy on hotter summer days
-I don’t like how you can’t really distinguish between the night/day cream simply by looking at the jar. I usually don’t have my contacts on when I’m applying my skincare routine and thus, it can be problematic to distinguish between the two creams. I think Yves Rocher should try to maybe change the lid colors so that we can all easily tell which one is the night and which one is the day cream
