DB Eternal Youth Illuminating Day Creme
"Eternal Youth Illuminating Day Creme helps prevent and reduce the signs of ageing whilst providing moisture and hydration. The infusions of Q10, antioxidants & peptides helps promote the appearance of younger, fresher looking skin. Leaves skin looking radiant and glowing!"
This pink coloured cream from DB (Designer Brands) has a lovely light consistency and a pleasant fragrance. It feels luxurious to apply, and blends quite easily as long as you don't use too much. At $19.99 for a 50ml jar, this day cream is quite good value for money, since only a small amount is needed each time. Immediately upon application, my skin felt slightly sticky to the touch, however this effect disappeared after 5 to 10 minutes, the time taken for the cream to properly absorb into my skin.
My skin felt soft and smooth and fine lines were less defined. It must be noted, I also used my lifting eye cream in conjunction with DB Eternal Youth, so that would have been a contributing factor. The best effect I saw was that my skin looked brighter and more illuminated after using this cream. I could see a noticeable glow and radiance. Also, Eternal Youth provided a great base for makeup. This is something I always worry about, because you don't want to cleanse, exfoliate, moisturise, then apply your treatment cream, wait for it all to absorb, then discover your foundation smears over the top or you get the dreaded rub-off effect. After applying my makeup, my pores were tight and I could barely see any fine lines.
The packaging of this product is also aesthetically pleasing. It looks like an upmarket glass jar, however it's plastic. Great news if you drop it on the bathroom floor (another thing I worry about with cosmetics and skin care packaging!).
Overall, I'm impressed with the results of DB Eternal Youth Illuminating Day Creme, and would consider purchasing it once my current jar runs out.
