revitalift-serum.jpgA couple of weeks ago, I introduced you to the new L’Oreal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power Collection, an anti-aging system that contains three products working together to repair wrinkles, re-firm contours and replenish facial volume. I’ve been using the system twice a day for a few weeks now and I’m thrilled with the results so far. The instant benefits are soft, moisturized skin that looks smoother with a noticeable plumping of the skin.

Last week I reviewed the Deep Acting Moisturizer and today I will review the remaining two products. The first step of the system is the Concentrated Serum. This serum aims to address 3 dimensions of skin aging to fight wrinkles, replenish volume and resurface skin texture. Powerful ingredients include Pro-Xylane to stimulate collagen and Hyaluronic Acid to penetrate skin and retain moisture. I apply the serum twice daily to damp skin and it feels amazing, instantly soothing my super-dry skin.

The third product in the collection is the Triple Power Eye Treatment that targets aging in the delicate eye area. It aims to fight wrinkles, reduce bags and lift the eye area using the same acting ingredients in the serum. It instantly works to smooth and moisturize the eye area, providing a great base for concealing products if desired.

All three products combine to make skin look amazingly soft, smooth and moisturized upon application. I also feel that my fine lines, especially around the eyes, appear reduced. Stay tuned for next week’s progress report!

L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift introduces Triple Power - three anti-aging skincare products designed to help fight the 3 dimensions of aging. When just fighting wrinkles isn’t enough, you need to go beyond a one-dimensional approach to restore skin’s youthful look. Challenge this approach with a powerful and luxurious cream (Triple Power Deep-Acting Moisturizer) that visibly addresses the three dimensions of aging skin: wrinkles, loss of facial volume and loss of firmness. The RevitaLift Triple Power collection also includes a Concentrated Serum and an Eye Treatment.

Rose-Products.jpgIf we had to pick the most romantic scent in the world, we’d have to go with rose. It just evokes such a sense of beauty and, yes, romance—obviously, since it’s the flower most men give women, right? In any case, we’ve put together a little bouquet of three rose-scented products that we know you’ll adore.

Crabtree & Evelyn Rosewater Bath & Shower Gel
It lathers wonderfully, it smells fantastic, and it leaves skin feeling so soft and smooth. What’s not to love?

Jurlique Rose Hand Cream
While we normally shy away from scented body lotions and creams, we make an exception for this one because it just smells too darn good not to use. The fact that it sinks into skin immediately and makes our hands feel great is just a bonus.

Fresh Rose FreshFace Primer
The primer we come back to again and again—not only because it smells divine, but because it makes our skin glow from within.

Last week I introduced the L’Oreal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power Collection anti-aging system and promised to keep you posted on my progress as I test out the products for a month. One week in and I can honestly say I’m impressed!loreal-deep-acting-moisturizer.jpg

While it’s too soon to visualize any long-term benefits, the instant benefits are remarkable — in large part due to the Triple Power Deep Acting Moisturizer. I will preface this by saying that I have extremely dry skin, so a moisturizer is an integral part of my morning and evening skincare routine. As I mentioned in my previous post, my smile lines have become more pronounced in recent years and I’ve noticed a slight loss of firmness.

My first impression of the product was, of course, the packaging. The jar has an impressive heft to it and a luxury feel that I rarely associate with a drugstore product. The cream is nice and lightweight, not too thick, with a light pleasant smell that isn’t at all cloying or overpowering. Applying the cream feels deliciously soothing and melts into skin, providing a perfect base for makeup without any greasy feel or look. Most importantly, it works instantly to moisturize my dry skin, leaving no flakes or rough patches whatsoever — a problem I often experience with other moisturizers. Even better, I do see a difference in fine lines with a noticeable plumping of the skin making it look younger and smoother on contact.

After using the product for a week, I find it to be an amazing daily moisturizer. As the weeks go on, I look forward to realizing the added benefit of younger, firmer skin as the patented ProXylane ingredient works to stimulate collagen production. I’ll check back in next week with my progress.

L'Oreal Paris Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator

Last week we introduced you to L’Oreal Paris Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator, one of the newest multi-tasking creams aimed at improving the appearance of skin for a flawless look. After spending a couple of weeks using this product daily, I can honestly say Youth Code BB Cream delivers. At the risk of sounding overly enthusiastic, I might go so far as to say the cream is magic in a tube.

Over the years, I’ve tried many tinted moisturizers and, more recently, BB creams, so I was expecting more of the same from this product. After applying a pea-sized amount of the product, I was amazed at how even my skin looked with absolutely no sign of redness. Incredibly, my skin looked flawless and so natural with virtually no tell-tale signs of any product on my skin whatsoever. Did I mention this cream is magic?

Since first trying Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator, I have been using the product daily in place of my usual tinted moisturizer, and every day I marvel at how this cream can make my skin look so beautiful. I’m thrilled to add this to my list of must-use beauty products!

The aptly named Divine Cream is L’Occitane’s luxury anti-aging day cream. This rich cream melts into skin providing instant comfort and nourishment. Using a powerful combination of organic essential oils to stimulate the production of collagen, it claims to smooth wrinkles for skin that is visibly firmer, brighter and younger looking. I have extremely dry skin and was very pleased with how soothed and moisturized my skin felt when using this, without looking shiny or greasy. Fair warning, the cream does have a strong perfume scent which I think smells really nice, but may seem cloying to those who prefer non-scented products.
