I’m a L’Oreal fan and have been for a while (I regularly profess my love for their Youth Code Serum, and have been pleased with many cosmetic and skincare products over the years) so when I was asked to review some pieces from their RevitaLift™ line I was excited. While I’ve had pretty good skin most of my adult life, now that I’ve hit 40 I’m seeing the effects of time on my face. Dry patches, fine lines and wrinkles, a loss of elasticity, and suddenly the occasional breakout, usually at that time of the month. I’ve learned with my skin and thanks to your comments and emails for the blog that no two people have the same skin story. L’Oreal has also realized this and created www.lorealskinexpert.com. L’Oréal’s goal with this site is to help consumers find the right solution for their unique skin concerns.
Considering my specific skin story, L’Oreal sent me three products to try out – RevitaLift™ Triple Power™ Eye Treatment, RevitaLift™ Triple Power™ Day Lotion Moisturizer with SPF 20, and RevitaLift™ Triple Power™ Intensive Overnight Mask. I received the products a month prior to the writing of the post, used every day without fail so I could provide as useful and accurate a review as possible.
L’Oreal RevitaLift™ Triple Power™ Eye Treatment claims to, “Repair Wrinkles. Reduce Bags. Lift Eye Area.” It is a slender tube with one of those cooling metal caps. I know the point of these caps is to blend the cream into the eye area, but I find them hard to use and believe I give a softer touch with my ring finger. I didn’t even try the metal cap, and used the cream with my finger, applying every morning and evening before my moisturizer. The eye treatment is very creamy, almost slippery yet it absorbs nicely. I can apply and five minutes later put on my makeup without fear of slippage. L’Oreal claims that with this eye treatment, “In 1 week, skin texture appears smoother and skin tone is more even. In 4 weeks, wrinkles are visibly reduced.” I prefer the feel of this product over my regular anti-aging eye cream and think the silky texture prevented me from having to put in any effort to have it absorb, helping me not add any more damage or reduction of elasticity to the eye area. It’s hard to say whether my skin appears smoother or my skintone is more even, as I did a lot of travel, late nights, and soaking of the rays during the 30-day process. However, I like the consistency and lack of irritation, which I’ve been known to experience with many anti-aging eye products.
L’Oreal RevitaLift™ Triple Power™ Day Lotion Moisturizer SPF 20 claims to, “Repair Wrinkles. Smooth Out Fine Lines. Fade Spots + Discoloration.” Combining the powerful anti-aging action of Pro-Xylane and Bright Active XP3 with broad spectrum protection against the sun’s UVA and UVB rays, this product sounded like a perfect fit for my skin needs. Again, I really liked the silky, emollient consistency of the product. It glided over the skin, absorbed reasonably well for a product with sunscreen, and didn’t cause my makeup to slip throughout the day. Even with a bit too much sun one weekend, I found this product hydrating my dry patches but not leaving me greasy. I always choose an anti-aging moisturizer with a higher SPF, but this did just as good a job as my regular anti-aging daily moisturizer in smoothing out fine lines; as for spots and discoloration I didn’t see a change but again my environment and lifestyle the past month didn’t help the situation. No breakouts, even the week before my period, which lately is rare for a new moisturizer. If this had a higher SPF I’d repurchase it.
RevitaLift™ Triple Power™ Intensive Overnight Mask is my JAM! Seriously, I love this stuff and am so glad they sent it for me to review. If not, I likely would pass it buy on the drugstore shelf. It’s like L’Oreal Youth Code Serum Intense in that it’s hard to fully explain why it is so awesome. But that night after the jar arrived in the mail, I applied the eye cream, my Youth Code serum, and then this mask and when I woke up my skin looked as though I just got back from a week at the spa. Seriously, my skin looked as happy as it does after a really great facial. Plump, small pores, dewy, glowy, happy. The mask features an innovative ELASTI-FLEX texture that supposedly acts to mimic skin’s own elasticity. It’s also the first night treatment to combine concentrated super ingredient Pro-Xylane with botanical extract Centella asiatica to help improve skin’s firmness & elasticity overnight and visibly transform the look of aging skin. I haven’t used the mask every night, I switch it up with my ordinary night cream, but each night I use this I wake up with a happy face. When I got a bit of sunburn, that night I slathered this mask all over my face, neck, and shoulders and woke up with softer, less red, and less itchy skin. A little goes a long way; I’ve used it at least three times a week for a month and have slathered it from forehead to bustline and I’ve hardly made a dent in the jar. This will be a re-purchase for sure.
