L'Oreal RevitaLift Bright Reveal Skincare Collection ReviewI have a confession to make. From last March until September, I neglected my regular beauty routine and my skin wasn't looking too good. Because of some personal difficulties, I wasn't feeling too excited about several things in my life which including putting in alot of effort into my personal appearance. A few weeks ago I made some hard decisions in my life, which I'm pretty excited about and will share soon, and I decided it was time to get back to basics and start looking as good as I felt. It was at that time that I received L'Oreal's new RevitaLift Bright Reveal Collection free to test out and review, which I took as a sign that I made the right decisions!
The L'Oreal RevitaLift Bright Reveal Collection includes a Brightening Scrub Cleanser, Brightening Peel Pads, Brightening Dual Moisturizer, and Brightening Daily Lotion and are packed with anti-aging ingredients including Vitamin GC Acid, Hepes, Glycolic Acid (formulated with 10% - one of the highest amounts found in drugstores), Perlite, and Retinol. Which is great for someone who is closer to 40 than 30 (but still doesn't look it:).
L'Oreal boasts that the new RevitaLift Bright Reveal skincare routine will reveal brighter, smoother and more even skin within one week. What I noticed was that my skin looked brighter, felt smoother and softer and had a more even skin tone after just one use!
The Brightening Scrub Cleanser is a daily cleanser that has a fresh citrus scent, which is great for those mornings that I needed an extra pick-me-up. I only needed to use a small amount of the scrub, which has small granules in the gel to help exfoliate my skin. It rinsed off easily and left my skin feeling fresh and looking bright. But after two weeks, I had to start using the Brightening Scrub Cleanser only about three times a week. I suffer from adult acne and when the blemishes first appear they are big and red (thank goodness for good concealers:). My blemishes usually only last about one week, but I found the scrub irritated them and they still looked big and red after one week. After cutting the scrub down to using it three times a week, the blemishes started to finally disappear. And my skin still looked fabulous.
The Brightening Peel Pads are pre-soaked in a 10% Glycolic Complex and are meant to be used at night after cleansing. The pads are have a slight texture to them which gave some extra exfoliation to my skin, which it needed after months of neglect. I also noticed some leftover makeup and dirt on the pad, even after cleansing. For the first two weeks, my skin felt and looked great but, I had to cut down use of the pads to three times a week because of my blemishes. But as an added bonus, cutting down use extended the product since only 30 pads come in the container.
The Brightening Dual Overnight Moisturizer is my favourite product of the collection (although I loved all of them). It has both an overnight lotion and serum in one package and both come out separately when I pump the tube. It's perfect for someone like myself who is just too tired, or lazy, to apply a serum and overnight lotion separately. And I could still feel the lotion on my skin in the morning even after sleeping with it on for six hours - eight hours if I'm lucky. This lotion made my skin feel soft and silky.
The Brightening Daily Lotion has a SPF 30 and goes on quite thickly, although my skin does soak it up pretty quickly. I also noticed that I only needed to use a small amount to cover my whole face and it made my skin feel soft and my makeup was easier to apply after using this lotion.
I'm so happy I tried out the L'Oreal RevitaLift Bright Reveal Collection. It made my skin look amazing, which made me feel awesome! The only drawback of using this collection on a daily basis is that the scrub and pads were a little much for daily use, so it might not be good for those with sensitive skin. Although I'm happy I used both products for two weeks straight to get my skin back to looking bright and feeling soft. Now I just need to keep it up!
L'Oreal RevitaLift Bright Reveal products retail for about $12.99 - $30.99 and can be found at drugstores and mass retailers.
P.s!: Feeling a little down? Sometimes taking some time out and pampering yourself with some new beauty products will not only help you look good on the outside, but also help you feel better on the inside as well.
