who knows Boots? A popular chemist from UK that provide beauty products and medicines. It's like Watson or Guardian (in Indonesia). Boots also have their own products, BOTANICS is one of the brand available in Boots.
These two items are available in Boots Thailand. Their price is really budget friendly, is that mean they are not good? Wait till you read my full review below.

And the night cream from www.me.boots.com:
With intensive moisturising agents, this night cream gets to work when skin is most receptive, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in just four weeks. This is while Vitamins C and E reinforce antioxidant protection. Packed with our unique anti-ageing complex, which includes Pro-Vitamin A and targeted Hyaluronic Acid, these help to boost collagen production and fight the visible signs of ageing. Plus, our innovative plant stem cell technology works to detoxify and give skin an overnight radiance boost.
The details provided in www.boots.com is no longer existed since the product seems to be replaced with the new perhaps improved formula, but when bought in Thailand the Boots there still sell the Replenishing Night Cream Age Defense.
Nevertheless, above are the creams. They look so pretty aren't they?! Like a mixed between gel and cream, so the texture is not so thick.
Compared with each other:
The day cream looks chalkier like any other moisturizer contain sun protection material
The night cream feels more hydrating and more water content
Since they are from different range the smell is different but both smells good anyway
The day cream may appear denser but after applied it gives a more velvety feeling than the night cream that gives more moisture that last longer (probably to stand through the night).
Like shown on image above and below, both of them accepted by the skin nicely. I really love skincare that doesn't give much residue on the skin and these items does that.
Will I keep using them? Definitely!
They are budget friendly.
The day cream contain low sun protection level (suitable for the lazy bum, at least they are still using sun protection) which later on can be top off with a high sun protection products.
The feeling on the skin (both item) is comfortable and pleasant.
No paraben (hooray!!)
They feel light on the skin yet provide enough moisturizing effect.
The day cream does calm my sensitive cheeks.
The night cream helps relaxing the fine lines, they are not completely gone, but the skin does appear more relaxed and comfortable.
Thank you sister Christina for these two babies ^__^
