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. L’Oreal 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.
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.
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?
I 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
