My skin story with L’Oréal Revitalift™ #AskSkinExpert

What’s your skin story?

Everyone has a unique skin story. In fact, as a blogger it is challenging to review skin care since we all have very different needs…and our personal needs can change from day to day. L’Oréal recognizes that there are countless skin stories out there, so they have created their Revitalift™ Program that helps you create a customized skin care regimen unique to your story and your skin care concerns.

A little over four weeks ago, I completed a skin care consultation through L’Oreal’s new site, www.lorealskinexpert.com and received a customized recommendation for my unique needs. So what’s my story? I grew up in the 70’s, when sun protection consisted of the bright white zinc oxide that my mom smeared across my nose…when she remembered. Every other part of my body that was exposed was left to burn or tan…and I would burn and peel until my skin finally gave in and became a dark tan. That also meant lots of freckles, which were cute back then; in fact, my dad would tell me each freckle was where the sun gave me a kiss.

What happens during childhood doesn’t just shape your personality and determine the issues you will eventually need to work through in therapy…it also creates the skin care issues you face as an adult. For me, that wanton sun bathing has resulted in wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and loss of elasticity. After taking the survey at www.lorealskinexpert.com, I was sent three products to test for 4 weeks then write about: Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Day Cream SPF 18, Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Night Cream, and Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream.

Less wrinkles and firmer skin? It sounds like exactly what I need. LOreal Paris, the skin experts say that with the Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming skin care I will experience advanced action against the signs of aging. Fortified with Pro-Retinol A and Stimuplex, Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming works to increase cell turnover, reduce wrinkles, firm skin, and provide 24-hour hydration.

There should be a noticeable difference within 4 weeks.

L'Oreal RevitaLift Day Cream

L’Oreal RevitaLift Day Cream

The Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Day Cream SPF 18 ($17.99) is a thick, creamy moisturizer that keeps skin protected during the day with a broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 18 sunscreen protection. It has a light fragrance that I don’t love, but it does dissipate quickly. For a cream moisturizer it doesn’t go on wet and it sinks it quickly. My skin varies, sometimes it’s dry and sometimes it’s oily, and I found that this moisturizer kept my skin hydrated and didn’t break me out. The big ingredients including Pro-Retinol A and Stimuplex reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin tone and firmness.

L’Oreal RevitaLift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Night Cream

The Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Night Cream (with Pro-Retinol® A and Stimuplex) ($17.99) is a cream moisturizer in a jar. Minus the sunscreen, it has the same big ingredients as the day cream, although this is a slightly thicker formula and goes on a little more wet. It also has more of  noticeable fragrance, which made it difficult for me to use. I found that my skin really didn’t need the extra hydration at night, but those with very dry skin will appreciate the mega moisturization this provides.

The Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream (with Pro-Retinol A and Stimuplex) ($17.99) is a fragrance-free moisturizing eye cream that can also be used on the lids.  This is my favorite product of the three – it’s light but very moisturizing and I definitely noticed an improvement in my fine lines.

Here is my before and after photo – what do you think?

L'Oreal Revitalift before and afterI see a pretty noticeable difference. I’m glad I had my skin care consultation. While I understand that back in the day we didn’t have the information we do now regarding sun exposure, it’s imperative to get educated regarding your skin and invest in excellent skin care.

Take a few minutes and visit www.lorealskinexpert.com to get your own customized skin care recommendation by taking the consultation.  You will not only get a customized Revitalift skin care regimen, you will also get great information on decoding ingredients, using skin care products, and skin care lifestyle tips.  – Lisa

    I am glad that this post caught my attention. I will definitely go and check out their website. I want to invest in a skin care regimen, just didn’t know which products I needed. This sounds like it will take a lot of the guess work out of the process.

  2. Been using L’Oreal Revitalift Eye Cream for years. I still love it

  3. I’ve been using several L’Oreal skincare products too and I must say I’m a big fan! Especially of the eye cream!

  4. It sounds like it has great ingredients, it just needs to be in different packaging! I am not a fan of jars.

  5. I’ve used that night cream and the eye cream, before. They are pretty nice and the price is good, too.

  6. I have used some of the revitalift products. I should give their eye cream a try.

  7. I’m definitely all about investing in good skin care! These products sound great.

  8. L’Oreal products are awesome! Effective and affordable <3

  9. It’s great that the creme was fine on both your oily and dry days. So many intensive creams are just too rich for my oily skin.

  10. I really like the eye cream too!

  11. I just started using Revitalift and love it. I never thought that I would love a drug store brand so much for skin care.

  12. I am genuinely loving this line

  13. I’ve always been a fan of L’Oreal products and it’s nice that they are not pricey like some other brands.

  14. I really liked the stuff I tried from them!

    I grew-up in the 70’s too and, no, sunscreen wasn’t a priority. Fortunately, I don’t have too much damage. The majority of the “freckles” are on my back and upper arms. Although, I have been using daily sunscreen products since my 30’s so I think that helped. I’ve always loved my L’Oreal skincare items and will be checking out this individualized recommendation tool for sure. Thanks for the important information. 🙂

  16. I love when I can get a personalized regimen from a brand! I feel like there’s a better chance of the products working how they say they will!

  17. I agree it is important to educate yourself on sun exposure. These products worked well for you, especially the eye cream.
