Skin after 30.
No one Everyone told you that your skin was going to change the second you cross that threshold. I went from eating pizza and sleeping in my makeup, to eating kale and wondering if squatting down to view the bottom shelf in my fridge counted as exercise. Times have changed. Since then I have been focusing on skin care rather than beauty products and I also don’t skip leg day. 🙂

So this is my true opinion and you can count on me to give a complete and honest review. So, here it goes.
First things first. I am a texture and smell type of girl. I love creamy lotions whether it be on my body or my face. This moisturizer is both creamy and smells light and clean. There is a slight sweetness to the aroma but not too pungent or overwhelming. You only need just a small amount to spread over your entire face. Normally, products that smell good have added fragrance which is not good for prolonged use. Similarly, products with less harmful ingredients contain natural fragrances and smell great too!! Exploring your options is always important.
The pretty packaging looks royal with its combination of colors and its weight makes it seem like there’s a lot of product. There’s the average 1.7 OZ of contents inside and its easily stored. Although, I would be careful not to drop it. It seems like it would shatter easily.
The Revitalift Challenge ran for a good 14-day’s promising a change in your skin and here is what I personally experienced when using this product. My skin was quenched when I woke up as opposed to needing a moisturizer right away. That’s probably due to an ingredient that helps to secure in moisture called dimethicone and is one of the several ingredients in Loreal’s Revitalift. Dr. Annie Chiu (a dermatologist in North Redondo Beach, CA) insists that
“A great moisturizer should make your skin feel hydrated, not oily. It should absorb, leaving a clean finish, and not just sit on top of the skin. It should allow you to layer makeup on top of it without piling up.”
It didn’t come off on my pillow and most importantly, I didn’t break out. Usually using new products can disrupt your skin and cause damage that could otherwise make or break a new beauty find. I feel like the moisturizer is light on my skin and smells good. It’s a decent base for my makeup application but other than that I don’t see any epic change in my overall complexion. My face has some red spots that stayed red and some lines developing but there was no reverse effect on those.
Do I feel like this product is decent? Sure. Would I purchase it? Probably not. If you want a well-priced item that hydrates your skin and feels light-weight then Loreal Revitalift is a great find, however, once this bottle is done, I will no longer be using it because of several ingredient’s that fall under “harmful” including Parabens and added coloring. So the search continues for a great moisturizer with simple and natural ingredients.
See my before and after pics shot with my iPhone camera. (possibly, the worst way to take a selfie!) These were taken 14 days apart and using the Revitalift product twice daily.

I don’t think that your moisturizer should contain any harmful ingredients so my opinion on Loreal’s Revitalift might be to pass on it and save your money for a simpler and more natural lotion. But as far as price, availability and usefulness it’s a decent product for what it claims. Are there any product’s that you swear by that help with anti-aging? If you want a complete list of harmful ingredients, let me know and I can post if for you in another post! Thank you for viewing guys!
