L’Oreal’s Revitalift 14 Day Challenge

For the past 12 days I have been doing the L’Oreal Revitalift Challenge. I posted my first day and first 7 days photos here.

Revitalift Challenge

At first, I liked the moisturizer, other than the strong scent that lingers on my skin. While it did nothing to improve my wrinkles and fine lines, I felt it provided decent moisture to my normal to dry skin. Even without anti-aging improvement, I decided to finish the challenge until I noticed that at a few days prior to yesterday’s Day 12, my skin was pretty oily. I have normal to dry skin so I can only contribute the oil to using the Revitalift moisturizer. By the time I got home from work yesterday my face was an oily mess.

I cleansed, exfoliated and used toner which I don’t normally do until before bed. I didn’t apply any of the moisturizer. Within 30 minutes, my skin was oily.  I did not use the Revitalift moisturizer last night, and I did not use the Revitalift moisturizer this morning.

I will not be finishing the challenge because I do not want my skin to continue being oily.

Other than the oily skin, I did not notice any positive changes in my skin. I have never much believed in the anti-aging hype. I do not believe there is a cream or an ointment that can diminish fine lines and wrinkles. There are products that contain harsh ingredients that plump the skin giving the appearance of diminished fine lines and wrinkles, but the harsh chemicals are doing more underlying damage.

I appreciate being sent the challenge, however L’Oreal’s Revitalift line is just not for me.

Did you do the Revitalift Challenge? Do you use anti-aging products? What do you think?

Day 7 – L’Oreal’s Revitalift Challenge

I have completed the first seven days of L’Oreal’s Revitalift 14 Day Challenge.

Here are the before pics:

Here are the pics after 7 days of using each morning and night:

After 7 days, what I do like:

I like that the moisturizer is thick and feels moisturizing. It hasn’t caused my skin to break out or irritate my sensitive skin. It melts into my skin and doesn’t affect makeup application.

What I do not like:

I do not like the scent. It is incredibly strong and I can smell it on my face even after makeup application, and throughout the day.

So, after 7 days, my observation? I don’t notice any difference in my wrinkles/fine lines.

Perhaps my wrinkles are wrinkles that won’t go away without a proper send off. Maybe they just really like my face. Either way, I’m  stuck with them for the rest of my life, and I’m OK with that. I am sort of proud of my wrinkles. I’ve earned them through having children, going through a divorce, surviving other stressful life events, and SMILING.  I’m kind of attached to them and what they represent. I am proud of how I am aging. I am 45 years old and love when people ask my age because I don’t look it nor feel it. 🙂 I have no judgments on those who do not want wrinkles. I am a big fan of You Do You. ❤

I will finish the 14 day challenge because I’m halfway there, but I won’t be purchasing this product, or any other product geared solely at anti-aging. I’m going to continue concentrating on keeping my outsides healthy by taking care of my insides with diet, and taking care of my outsides with exercise and sunscreen.

And I’m going to keep laughing and smiling.

Tell me, do you notice any changes in my skin?

Are you using L’Oreal’s Revitalift products? What are your thoughts on the multi-billion dollar anti-aging industry?

Day 1 – L’Oreal Revitalift Challenge

I recently received the 14 day L’Oreal Revitalift Challenge packet. I’ve not really tried anti-aging moisturizers because I don’t believe they work, and most have ingredients that are too harsh for my sensitive skin.

As you can see, I have lots of wrinkles around my eyes. Ignore the puffiness.  I had just woken up and I’m currently on antibiotics for strep throat. 😦 My bathroom lighting is quite harsh but it shows my imperfections perfectly. 🙂

Upon opening the package, it had a strong perfume-y scent.  I can still smell it on my face, even after applying makeup and a setting spray. It’s not unpleasant, just strong. The moisturizer went on nicely and wasn’t greasy. It melted into my skin without affecting makeup application.

I’ll post updates with photos on Day 7 and on Day 14.

Have you tried this product? What are your thoughts on anti-aging products?
