As for Night Care, I noticed that it has slight yellowish tinge, which I think is from the shea butter. Shea butter is an amazing moisturizer, but I think it contributes a lot towards a much thicker product. Compared to both my L'Occitane Shea Ultra Gentle Moisturizer (which is 8% shea butter) and LUSH Celestial, Night Care is much richer and heavier. My skin drinks this up as well, but my face feels a lot more tacky afterwards compared to Day Care. I use this one pretty sparingly or rotate with a lighter moisturizer. I would be hesitant to use this in the summer as I think it might be too heavy even for me in warmer weather.
If I had to recommend just one, I would choose Day Care. It's lighter, probably more suitable for a wider range of people, and could also be used as a night cream if your skin needs just a little bit of extra hydrating TLC. Night Care would be a great pick for those with very dry skin and/or those living in drier/harsher climates--if I suddenly had to pack up and go to, for example, Edmonton in winter, you can bet I would be clinging to this tube and holding on for dear life.
