Skincare can be expensive and time-consuming however the results are long-term with the right products. My normal skincare regimen includes washing with a gentle facial cleanser for combination skin, toner with salicylic acid and a moisturizer with sunscreen. I do wear MAC N9 face and body foundation. It is a very light formulation and moisturizing. Because I wear makeup I have to be very diligent with removing each night. Typically I use makeup remover wipes and then follow-up with my cleanser and toner. I also use my Clarisonic twice a week for exfoliating.
Recently I started using an anti-aging serum, Avene Retrinal 0.1 Intensive Cream. This serum is effective with minimizing breakouts, even skin tone and anti-aging due to the retinol derivative. The cost was a bit pricey at $65 and, of course, being an Amazon fan I found it there for half of the price from the dermatological center. This product was recommended by my aesthetician I go to for waxing.
Now when it was time to review this product I looking forward to trying something new. I put using my anti-aging product on hold for 3 weeks. There is a Revitalift Volume Filler Serum Cleanser, however, this was not part of the review.
After cleansing and toning:
Skincare – Loreal Paris Revitalift
Step 1 – Revitalift Volume Filler Serum
Pros: Easy to dispense from the tube, you can dispense as much or as little as you need to cover your entire face and jawline. It has a very mild scent. A little of serum goes a long way so you’re not wasting the product.
Cons: Do not push down on the plunger to avoid wasting. It’s best to set it flat on a surface.
Step 2-Revitalift Volume Filler Eye Cream
Pros- Easy to dispense from the tube. You can dispense as little or as much as you need to the eye area. Mild scent.
Cons- There were none.
Step 3 – Revitalift Volume Filler Moisturizer
Pros-Light with a creamy consistency and very moisturizing. No sticky residue. Light scent that reminded me of lavender. A small amount is needed to cover the entire face.
Cons-No Sunscreen!!!! I used my regular moisturizer with sunscreen. Adding another product each morning was time-consuming.
Step 4-Revitalift Volume Filler Night Cream
Step 1, 2, and 3
Pros-Light and creamy consistency. A dime size amount is enough to cover your entire face. Mild Scent.
Cons-Time consuming for a nighttime skincare routine.
I used the products for 3 weeks. The best thing about the products was how smooth my skin felt within a few days and my skin was really moisturized. I also noticed my breakouts were minimized while using the product line. Fortunately, my skin is not experiencing any visible signs of aging so I cannot speak to the anti-aging properties. The morning and nighttime regimen was time-consuming with using three and four products. As an African-American woman, I feel it is necessary to protect my melanin with daily use of sunscreen. I would definitely reconsider using the moisturizer if sunscreen becomes a part of the formulation.
