Hey all beauties, so here I am up with a review of one of my favorite day cream. I picked this up long back around 7-8 months back from Ulta. No7 is from Boots, a company that manufactures products which are hypo-allergic in nature which means they suit to the most sensitive skin. I keep buying their products since they always suit me.
Back then when the winters were too harsh, I picked this cream “No7 Lift and Luminate Day Cream”. It claimed that its moisturizing as well as it has got sun protection. So I found it as a smart pick for winters. You can buy it online on ulta.com.

No7 Lift and Luminate Day Cream comes in a transparent glass jar with a screw lid which is black in color. The jar is quite heavy and I don’t feel its travel friendly as such. The cream spreads easily on the skin. The cream claims to lift up and brighten your skin and gives a healthy glow. The main reason I picked it up was I required something very moisturizing for skin in winters. This cream not only moisturized my skin but left a healthy glow throughout the day. You need only one or two pea sized quantity to cover your complete face and neck.
No7 Lift and Luminate Day Cream consist of Vitamin C which helps in restoring the skin radiance and makes it soft. The cream also consists of SPF protection which is great since you need comparatively less SPF during winters. My skin did improve a lot after using this cream. The cream absorbs into the skin quickly and immediately imparts a glow.
However I stopped using it as summer was nearing since it left my skin greasy. I still keep it handy and use it when the weather is bad and skin is cracking up. According to me the cream will suit combination skin during winters and dry skin all the time. But oily skin beauties should stay away from this since it might leave your skin greasy. I use it underneath my BB or CC cream or foundation. On days when am super lazy for makeup I just apply this cream and top it with my MAC studio fix powder plus foundation and I am good to go!
Here is the swatch of the product:
- Extremely moisturizing.
- Contains SPF.
- Absorbs quickly into the skin.
- Imparts glow and improves skin texture.
- Not travel friendly.
- Leaves greasy feeling during summers.
Overall I loved this moisturizer and would prefer using it during winter. I would like to try the other products from the range Lift and Luminate from No7. And yeah I will keep picking this again and again whenever I need until I find such a great moisturizing cream.
