In a few weeks, I'll be turning 48, and although I don't feel much older than 25, my skin is starting to tell another story. When you're young, you don't pay much attention to diligent skincare. We think we'll have taut, gorgeous skin forever. And then that first line or spot appears, and we immediately go into panic mode.
It wasn't until my mid-thirties that I started to consistently take care of my skin. I had been diagnosed with rosacea and implementing a skincare routine was essential to controlling the rosacea. I invested in a few decent skincare products and began cleansing and moisturizing every morning and evening.
I was a few years into my forties when I started to notice an increase in fine lines on my forehead, crow's feet, and around my lips. It was time to add an anti-aging cream or serum to my routine. But finding the one that's right for you can be overwhelming. The options seem to be endless. I've always loved L’Oréal products, so I started there. L’Oreal Paris, the skin experts can recommend a regime that's customized to your skincare concerns once you take the online consultation.
I was eager to take the online consultation and get my results once my answers were assessed. The experts at L’Oréal recommended two products that best addressed my skin issues and concerns (dryness, lack of volume, and wrinkles):
- Revitalift™ Volume Filler Daily Re-Volumizing Moisturizer
- Revitalift™ Volume Filler Daily Re-Volumizing Concentrated Serum
Revitalift™ Volume Filler Daily Re-Volumizing Concentrated Serum
What I love about the serum is that it helps to replenish the natural fullness that young skin is known for. In addition to filling in lines and wrinkles, the serum also replenished skin volume to create a fuller look.
The Revitalift™ Volume Filler Daily Re-Volumizing Concentrated Serum contains Hyaluronic Acid to help boost skin's moisture retention, helping to give a more youthful appearance by improving skin's overall fullness. Although I didn't notice much in terms of decreased wrinkles, I did notice that the area around my eyes was fuller and less hollow and my cheeks were more rounded.
Fine lines on my forehead definitely faded, but the one deep wrinkle I have between my eyebrows didn't seem to improve.
Revitalift™ Volume Filler Daily Re-Volumizing Moisturizer
Once you hit your 40s, it's a good idea to start using a moisturizer that does double duty (moisturizes while fighting the signs of aging). The Revitalift™ Volume Filler Daily Re-Volumizing Moisturizer excelled at plumping and adding volume to my entire face as well as keeping it hydrated all day. Usually I can feel dryness beginning to set in during the late afternoon. But Revitalift™ Volume Filler Daily Re-Volumizing Moisturizer kept my face moisturized and smooth for close to 12 hours.
I noticed a decrease in my crow's feet and forehead lines as well as the fine lines that have begun to form around my upper lip. My skin also feels less thin.
The photo on the left is the "before" photo which was taken the day I began using Revitalift™ Volume Filler serum and moisturuzer. You can see lines on my forehead, a wrinkle between my eyebrows, and crow's feet.
The photo on the right was taken today, 4 weeks after I have been using both Revitalift™ Volume Filler products. There is definitely a decrease in fine lines on the forehead and around my eyes, but you can still see the deep wrinkle although it doesn't appear as pronounced in the after picture.
I haven't decided if I will continue to purchase the serum, but the Revitalift™ Volume Filler Daily Re-Volumizing Moisturizer will most certainly become a part of my daily beauty regimen. I was thrilled with the way it filled in my lines and gave me a fuller look overall, and I haven't found a moisturizer at a similar price point that hydrates as well as Revitalift™ Volume Filler Daily Re-Volumizing Moisturizer.
