L’Oreal Revitalift Laser Renew anti-aging super serum review

19 Oct

L’Oreal have created yet another range of skin care goodies; Revitalift Laser Renew.

Jislaaik! Has Andie MacDowell (54) discoverd the fountain of youth or has she been PhotoShopped to hell and gone?

The collection consists of a day cream, eye cream and serum (R225 each) and I’m most taken with the latter. If you don’t have senstive skin, there’s nothing stopping you from using it around your eye area and, in essence, it uses the same active ingredients as the day cream but in a more concentrated form.

I like that this comes in a pump bottle, not a dropper, so your ingredients don’t get degraded by air.

Claims-wise, L’Oreal say using their serum twice a day for two months can improve wrinkle depth almost as well as a single session with a CO2 laser. The serum’s ingredients include mega-hydrating hyaluronic acid to help plump out your lines as well as Pro-Xylane (a sugar-protein) that, according to L’Oreal, can stimulate the production of glycoaminoglycans (GAGs) in your skin to help prevent moisture loss. GAG’s also assist in bolstering the network between your skin cells. This helps boost your skin’s firmness and ensures that the pathways through which your cells communicate operate on top form.

Last but not least, the Laser Renew also makes use of LHA (lipo hydroxyl acid), a very mild chemical exfoliant, to gently rid your skin’s surface of excess skin cells. This can’t shrink your pores, but it can make them look their best.

In regards to texture, I really liked this serum. It’s nice and light and sinks into your skin in a flash, kind of like a crème-gel. It doesn’t have that slippery silicone-y feel many serums feel obliged to have. Because of this, it didn’t aggravate my ‘oilies’ in the least and teamed up nicely with my daily moisturiser. If you’re looking for something to boost your skin’s moisture levels but don’t want to switch to a heavier cream, this is a nice pick.

Love, love

    Very nice product, smells great and easy to apply. Doesn’t leave a greasy feel. Blends in well and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.
