As you can see upon examination of the photographs, this container holds two tubes: a red one and a white one. The pump on the top has two holes leading to the two tubes. As you depress the pump, two creamy liquids come out: one red and gel-like, the other white and lotion-like.
As gimmicks go, this was brilliant. They got me to buy it, but besides not noticing any change in my skin, there is very little cream actually in the tubes. It is gone in a matter of days, even using it conservatively. Also, if you do not push down in the middle of the pump, the pump will not produce an equal amount of both creams. It does say in the directions to push from the middle of the pump.
I am still trying to take this container apart. Whenever I have something in a tube, I always take it apart to get the last little bit out. L’Oreal gets five stars for the design of the product because it is virtually indestructible. I was able to get the top off with pliers and discovered two things. First, there is a tube within a tube so you’re getting even less lotion than the outside makes it appear. Secondly, all of the red gel was gone and there was just a very little bit of the white cream gone. The pumps must operate by suction because they are just little nubs and not the pump with a long stem attached.
L’Oreal makes some good lotions for the face, but this is not one of them. I didn’t dislike the product, but there was hardly enough to use by which I could form an opinion. Save your money and buy a different lotion for your face.
