Overall this product is OK, but nothing special especially when you consider value for money.
I used to use "Bienfait Multi-Vital Nuit" by Lancome and I loved it! That was the miracle night cream for me, but sadly they have discontinued it, so I've decided to give this a try.
The cream texture is velvety and it smells divine, but other than that it didn't give me the "new amazing skin" look the morning after, which "Bienfait Multi-Vital Nuit" did.
I'm still looking for a night cream that truly renews my skin overnight, but in the meantime, this will do.

2012 Mar 11th Update:
I just finish the whole jar! Was using EL's Timezone Night due to its state-to-art ingredients but end up NOT moisture enough! I just bought back Genefique Night, its still the best Night-Cream so far!
This is so far the best Lancome Night-cream. Its very good for dry-fall/winter season! Even better then Primordiale which I used to consider the best product! I've include the ingredient list. The good thing about this cream is... Bifida Ferment Lysate listed as the 4th ingredients. Assume if you like Estee Lauder's Advance Night Repair, which is full of Bifida Ferment Lysate, you would also like this product! (Needless to say, I pair this night-cream with EL's night repair!) This still contain mineral oil and paraffin, but for this product, my skin can take them! *For those who doesn't like mineral oil, you might need to have 2nd thoughts*
I've recently bought the Genifique Night Cream because Lancome seem to discontinue Primordiale Night Cream. *Lancome did this often, discontinue something and rename it later for another marketing hype, for example... Aqua Fusion was discontinued but replace with Aqua Vital which is exactly the same!* Anyway, I was a bit worried this night cream might irritated my acne prone sensitive skin. Because the Genifique serum broke my face... luckly this night cream doesn't.
- Very smooth texture, very easy to apply, its like a mixture of lotion, water and gel.
- Pleasant scent!
- Doesn't irritated sensitive skin.
- No break out!
- You might feel oily right after you apply the product, but it sink right into your skin in few minutes.
- Skin feel baby-soft, calm and refresh the next morning.
- Bifida Ferment Lysate is included. The famous ingredient which used by the popular proven working EL-Advance Repair serum.
- The price is crazy! 110$CND. (95$USA)
- Work similar to Lancome Primordiale Night Cream but much much more expensive!
Overall, I'm very happy with the result. My skin does feel baby soft and calm. I'm sure Lancome over-priced this product a lot, and the whole "boost the activity of genes" theory will only give Lancome more reasons to mark up the product.
I will only repurchase this if I can handle the 110$CND price, but this is a good night time moisturizer so I still recommend this cream to people who are willing to invest on their skin care products, but I'm sure there will be a slight cheaper *or slight less luxurious* replacement somewhere.

I really like the texture of this night cream. The scent is pleasant too, not overpowering. The night cream obviously repairs skin cells as you sleep, reviving genes of skin cell repair. It makes my skin feel very moisturized and I look well rested when I awake. It's pricey but a good night cream overall.
