Dove Deep Moisture Day And Night Cream (product review)

be beautiful with punam

My husband visited Canada few months back and he got some cosmetics for me...
he did this without asking my needs... well still the things he got were nice.
This moisturizer combo of day and night cream by dove also belongs to that shopping...
Two of them will last for more than at least two months.

I have used them individually and as a combo as well...

Day Cream

Night cream:

My Experience:

This was my first day/night cream combo I have tried and I have to say I am happy with it.


Both the creams come in a sturdy cute shaped tiny tubs which are easy to use but I love tube packaging because they are more hygienic.
Maybe I am bit of a germphobe but sticking your finger in tub every time before moisturizing
does not do it for me.
I wish it could either in tube or with some tiny spatula.

Texture and consistency:

Both the creams are neither very thick nor runny at all it’s in between.
They just sink in quite quickly in to my skin. But the day cream does give a dewy finish to my
oily skin in these summers.

They just spread so very easily on face and just take few seconds to absorb.
Texture is soft and smooth like any other cream and fragrance is mild.

Moisturizing: Both the creams are great in moisturizing... they settle down quickly and it not does sit on the top of my skin like a layer of cling wrap.

Before April, day cream was doing well for my oily skin but since April the day cream is
making my t zone sweat badly but after few hours and when I applied it before my make up
it shows oil more quickly like in 1 and half hour.

 When I individually used the day cream it is just good for hydrating
Skin deeply without making it over oily except my t zone and that too in extreme summers.
And yes  it has SPF which is obviously a plus point...I am more often at home in mornings so
for me this day cream is nice because I don’t need to slather an extra layer of sunscreen.

 I liked night cream over day cream

I have realised this when I have stopped using day cream and I used night cream alone .
Night cream  gives a glow to my skin every morning... I could actually notice a sheer
brightness on my face and my t zone is comparatively less oily.

I could actually see my skin more glowing and soft .I think it does work in improving texture of skin.

So it’s a yay yay for night cream and ok okay for day cream... In combination they work same
I mean not a huge difference .but the more visible results will be of night cream.

I am not very ardent user of day cream I prefer using night creams only, I know this is not a
good habit (I am very lazy)...but this combo worked nice for my oily skin...
It kept my skin really well hydrated and I am raving about the night cream because of the glow it gives.

Day cream:

Swatches of night cream:

I think if they worked well for my oily skin definitely they will also work nicely for dry skins and
combination skin because both the creams have good balance of moisture for which dove is
famous and it never burdened my skin or broke out my skin even in the humid whether of Mumbai.

Despite some of the gripes with day cream of making my skin bit oily and sweaty, this combo
left a good impression on me.

GOOD: Both the creams are Hydrating and moisturising
Absorbs easily
Light formulation
SPF is a value addition
Night cream improves skin

Day cream makes oily skin sweaty and oilier
