Lancome RÉNERGIE MICROLIFT R.A.R.E. Superior Lifting Cream SPF 15 Sunscreen

According to Sephora, RÉNERGIE MICROLIFT R.A.R.E. Superior Lifting Cream SPF 15 Sunscreen:
Inspired by the latest lifting techniques, Lancôme invents a non-surgical face lift with R.A.R.E.™ technology - re-bundling and repositioning effect.

Breakthrough oligopeptide doubles protein links to re-bundle collagen*. Skin appears lifted and firmed. 25,000 microlifts** immediately smooth wrinkles.
After 4 weeks see the repositioning effect: lifted brows, firmed cheeks, tightened jawline. Face visibly recovers its natural contours and looks years younger.
* In vitro test shows increase in Lumican (protein links) multiplied by up to 2.15.
** On average, women ages 40-55 have over 25,000 micro points on the face. Rénergie    Microlift R.A.R.E.™ targets these points to tighten, lift and firm skin.
Now, I received a sample size version (0.5 oz.) of this lotion/sunscreen as part of a gift.  Even though I received a smaller size, it is lasting me a long time. 

Please note, that personally I am in no way needing a facelift or help with wrinkles (yet).  But, I do enjoy a good moisturizer that has sunscreen in it that makes me feel good when I put it on in the morning as opposed to greasy, icky sunscreens that make me feel bad all day.  So I will review this cream from that mindset.

Pros - smells great (soft, delicate and slightly floral), makes my skin feel soft and smooth after it soaks in a bit, SPF 15 (sunscreen is a must everyday!), a little goes a long way (but don't skimp on sunscreen, you could even mix a bit of this with an alternate sunscreen if you wanted), great for preventative skin care.

Cons - Expensive ($80 for 1.7 oz. at Sephora - see if you can get a sample before you buy!)

Overall, I love this cream.  It feels great and I look forward to using it more!
