Today I am partnering up with L’Oreal and Conde Nast to bring you a bit of my skin story. As you all know I am always on the quest for beautiful, radiant skin. With that being said I always tend to take skincare very and I mean VERY seriously. For me skincare tends to be the beginning of everything. It is the base before you apply makeup, it is the one thing that can give you the whole feeling of ‘I woke up like this’ feeling, and it is the one thing that can make someone feel discouraged and down. Skin to me, is the Holy Grail when it comes to beauty.
The past four weeks I have been actively testing out some new skincare products, and man I am impressed. As we head into the cold months- or in California the winder months- I tend to go from having very combination-oily skin to a bit of combination-dry skin. Now as you all know I am a HUGE lover of retinols and products that contain retinols- my skin just loves it. Since I don’t often dabble in drugstore skincare products, when given the chance to try out a few drugstore skincare products by L’Oreal, I was jumping at the opportunity. As you all know, I am a girl always looking for a great deal as long as they can deliver results. After a quick and easy skincare consultation, I was anxiously ready to start the L’Oreal Revitalift™ line that suited my concerns and needs. So I recently put the three L’Oreal Revitalift™ products to the test that were recommended for me. No serums, no extra add-ons, just my trust cleanser, a toner, the L’Oreal Revitalift™Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Day Cream SPF 18, the L’Oreal Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Night Cream, and the L’Oreal Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream. Let’s see how they did…
L’Oreal Revitalift™Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Day Cream
First up was the L’Oreal Revitalift™Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Day Cream SPF 18– $17.99 USD, OMG I am obsessed with the day cream. Housed in a white jar- which I like so you easily know the difference between day and night- at first I was a bit hesitant since it is a bit thicker then I usually like my day moisturizer to be, however; this moisturizer absorbed into the skin so quickly without leaving a film or residue on the skin, that I forgot how thick it actually first felt out the jar. It contains a SPF 18 to help protect the skin from UVA/UVB rays, as well as Pro-Retinol A and Stimuplex to help increase cellular turnover, reduce wrinkles, firm the skin all while providing much needed hydration. I am extremely happy with this day cream; my skin is much smoother, softer and overall even in tone since using it. I have noticed that my forehead wrinkles are less noticeable as well, so to me this is a winning product for sure.
L’Oreal Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Night Cream
Next up is the L’Oreal Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Night Cream– $17.99 USD, this night cream is a dream come true in a blue jar. The night time cream is sheer perfection as it is the perfect amount of hydration and thickness. Upon application almost instantly the skin feels smooth and hydrated, but when you wake up OMG you guys! This night cream delivers the most glowing, radiant and refreshed skin EVER! I have been looking forward to my night time ritual to pat this cream on my face and décolletage, because I am obsessed with how hydrated a plump skin looks within minutes. It’s like a dream come true in a jar. The unique combination of the Pro-Retinol A and Stimuplex help reduce wrinkles, firms skin, provides 24-hour hydration all while increasing collage production and fortifying the skin with much needed elasticity. For as thick as this moisturizer is, I was slightly hesitant at first because my skin is pickier and picker the older I get, but so far I haven’t had any breakouts or crazy pimples appear, so for me this cream is a double win as my skin drinks this up!
L’Oreal Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream
The last product I have been trying is the L’Oreal Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream–$17.99 USD, now me and eye creams are a bit of a trial and error for me. Sometimes when I think they are perfect, they tend to leave me with a bit of milia. Sometimes when I go for something much lighter my under eyes area tends feel dull and in need of hydration, however; with this eye cream my under eye area is loving this cream. The consistency of the this eye cream is on the thicker side, but its not too thicker and heavy that it leaves the skin greasy. Instead I find it to be the perfect eye cream for my skin right now. My dark circles are lesser and lesser and instead of waking up with puffy eyes, I am waking up with a bright and radiant eye area. I also love that this eye cream seems to be the perfect base for under concealer. It helps allow the concealer to stick without getting flakey or creasy. I am pretty much obsessed with this eye cream.
I can honestly say after 4 weeks of trying these awesome L’Oreal Revitalift™ line, my skin feels so much smoother, firmer and overall better. I am glad that finally found an amazing skincare line that suits my skins picky needs, and will help me looking younger much longer. I currently don’t really have a ton of fine lines and wrinkles except the forehead area and a between the brows, but I have noticed after using the L’Oreal Revitalift™ line my problem areas look much less noticeable. My skin feels plumped and hydrated and I want to keep it that way as long as possible. Let’s be honest it is never too late to try and reverse the damage that has already been done. I don’t know about you but I want to stay forever young….
