Votre White Essence Lightening and Brightening Day Moisturizer is milky white in color and has a light, fluffy consistency. The texture of this cream in an absolute delight. Very light and whipped consistency which sinks into your skin like a dream. The fragrance is very mild and not bothering.

I just take a tiny amount of the cream and massage it on my face. It gets absorbed easily without any stickiness or oiliness. My skin instantly feels hydrated and silky smooth. There are a whole lot of creams in the market which make skin silky smooth due to the presence of main top ingredient silicones. But this one is silicone-free and the silky smoothness is not just temporary.

I have dull, dehydrated skin and Votre White Essence Lightening and Brightening Day Moisturizer provides my skin with adequate hydration and makes it look soft and plumper. Since it has SPF 35 and PA ++, it is additional benefit of protecting from sun. Even if you don’t have time to apply a sunscreen, you can just go applying this cream alone. It is pretty rare to find a day cream with high SPF of 35.

Coming to the long term results of Votre White Essence Lightening and Brightening Day Moisturizer, I haven’t seen any effects on dark spots, discoloration or fine lines. Maybe I need to use it for a longer period of time. But it does help to brighten and lighten skin tone and also gives glowing and radiant skin. My skin is feeling so healthy, supple, young and plumper nowadays. Of course, one needs to follow a good skincare routine along with this, CTM + scrubs and face masks.

The ingredients list just like all other Votre products is simply superb. It contains vitamin C, licorice, orange, radish, cranberry fruit extract, pomegranate and mulberry which rare and potent ingredients for skin. OMC and Tio2 are the SPF ingredients.

The price is expensive. But only little quantity needed for each use. I got a deluxe sample of 30g and I have been using it for more than a month now. A 50g tub will last for good 2 months or more. But I still wish the price were a little lower πŸ™ I would like to repurchase this cream due to the amazing ingredients, but just hesitating for the high price point. I wish they atleast give discounts. Anyway, if you wish to try more of Votre products, just subscribe to VanityCask. You will get a deluxe sample from this brand every month which I think is a pretty good deal.




Does it satisfy all its claims?

I haven’t seen any effects on dark spots, discoloration or fine lines. Maybe I need to use it for a longer time. But other claims of brightening, lightening, moisturization and sun protection are true.

What I like?

* Light-weight, whipped texture.
* Absorbed easily without any oiliness or greasiness.
* Makes skin silky smooth, soft, supple.
* Skin looks healthy, young and plumper.
* Brightens and lightens skin tone.
* Good SPF of 35 and PA++
* Amazing ingredients of vitamin C, licorice, orange, radish, cranberry fruit extract, pomegranate and mulberry which are rare to find in any skincare product.
* Only little quantity needed for each use.
* Vegan and cruelty-free.
* Non-Comedogenic and dermatologist tested.

What I don’t like?


Would I recommend?

Yes, if you don’t mind the high price.

Would I repurchase?

I might. If its on offer.

Value for money?

Its expensive.
