    @kpatel966, Neither sentence makes sense without a word like This or The or Our before face cream.

    The bare phrase face cream means 'all face cream' or 'any face cream' or 'face cream in general' — and it's impossible to predict how long any of these might last.

    Christmas should be spelled with upper-case C.

    This face cream wil last you until Christmas
    is probably what you want to say.
    It means
    'If you keep using this face cream, it won't run out before Christmas'.

    The other version
    This face cream will last with you until Christmas
    doesn't imply that you'll be using the cream.
