Bette Davis said it best “Old age ain’t no place for sissies.” I take my skincare seriously but I didn’t always. In fact, I didn’t start a real skincare regimen until I was about 45. Please don’t follow in my footsteps, beauties. I recommend getting started on a good skincare routine by your mid-20’s and most certainly by your 30’s. I’m lucky that I have good genes but I still need to be vigilant about sticking to my routine and using good, effective skincare products like the L’Oreal Revitalift Line. My skincare sins of the past,  no sunscreen and no proper routine have come back to haunt me. I need products that help me repair sun damage, keep wrinkles from increasing and keep my skin moisturized and bright.

With so many claims made by manufacturers and so many unpronounceable ingredients, it’s hard to know what’s what with the newest skincare products. Even if you are familiar with some of the buzz words, how do you know what will work for YOUR skin?

I may be getting older but I’m going down without a fight!  One tool I’ve found particularly useful is L’Oreal’s skincare website. They recognize that everyone’s skin has its own unique story. The website helps women like us find the right solution for our unique (and over 40) skin concerns. You get a personalized skin diagnostic with a customized RevitaLift™ Skincare regimen. How cool is that?

My recommended regimen consisted of: L’Oreal Revitalift™Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Day Cream SPF 18, the L’Oreal Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Night Cream, and the L’Oreal Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream. I have been using these three products for the past four weeks. Some worked out better than others. Read on!

L’Oreal Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Day Cream SPF 18 – a daily daytime moisturizer with broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 18 sunscreen protection. I love that I don’t need a separate sunscreen to add another layer to my skin! Fortified with Pro-Retinol A and Stimuplex, Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming works to increase cell turnover, reduce wrinkles, firm skin, and provide 24-hour hydration. It is thicker than most daytime moisturizers I’m used to but when the weather turns colder it will be perfect for the fall and winter months. As I’m getting older, my skin is getting drier and this provides the much needed hydration my skin needs all day.

L’Oreal Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Night Cream – this night cream totally took me by surprise. I was skeptical at first because it looks so thick in the jar. This moisturizer touts a combination of Pro-Retinol A and Stimuplex for anti-wrinkle and firming action while you sleep. The texture is almost like that of a balm, except it fully absorbs. I can’t believe the double dose of hydration this gives my skin!  I love the soft, supple feel of my skin in the morning. It has rid me of those awful dry flakies around my nose. The scent is quite strong and that is one thing I wish L’Oreal would change–please eliminate the scent from your products or at least make it lighter. That said, this is one product I will definitely repurchase.

L’Oreal Revitalift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream – this unique daily moisturizer delivers anti-wrinkle and firming action, created specially to care for the delicate area around the eyes. It has a light whipped texture and glides on the skin while providing ALL DAY hydration. I’ve tried a bizzilion eye creams and I have to say, I really, really like this one. It blends well with concealer due to the fluffy-ness (is that a word?) and helps to smooth out the under eye area. It does NOT feel greasy and won’t make your mascara run. I can put it on in the morning and touch my eye late in the day and the area still feels soft and moisturized. I could tell a big difference when I didn’t use it when applying makeup–it would drag under my eyes so I will never be without this eye cream! This is only product of the three that is fragrance free.

Bottom Line: if you are looking for a effective yet reasonable anti-aging skincare line, I recommend the L’Oreal Revitalift Line.

    I’ve been using L’Oreal Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream for several years. I love it. Doesn’t irritate my sensitive eyes and skin and it’s a great moisturizer. I probably need to try more products in this line

  2. I’ve use revitalift some in the past and was happy with it.

  3. Good skin care is just so crucial! I have used the Firming Night Cream and the Eye Cream, in the past, they are nice.

  4. I have been using a few L’Oreal Skincare products lately too and have been really impressed!

  5. I’m in my mid twenties now and am trying to be super adamant about skincare so I don’t regret it later on! These products sound great.

  6. I didn’t start using a better skincare regimen until later in life too but at least I did use Clinique. I’m glad to hear that the eye cream is unscented since I know the two moisturizers would knock me out.

  7. FabZilla_Kath says

    I started anti-aging skincare in my late 20s. At 41, I can vouch that it did help keep wrinkles at bay!

  8. It sounds like a promising line, but I dislike jar packaging.

  9. Is this why you don’t look as old as I do?

  10. That eye cream sounds really nice!

  11. I think you have great skin!! I am going to have to try that eye cream. I need something for my fine lines!

  12. Back when i didn’t have much $$ to spend on skin care I always bought L’oreal products. They are really great and fairly inexpensive!

  16. I haven’t tried L’Oreal products, these sound great though. I think my mom would love these.

  17. Melinda Kuffler Dunne says

    I had no idea that Loreal had a skincare customizer on-line. I use several of the products but I should probably make sure I am using the correct products for my skin needs.

  18. Chelley Martinka says

    I love that I can customize my care online! I’ll have to check this out- my skin is in need of some love.

  19. Finding a good anti-aging system is a must especially since the winter season is fast approaching.

  20. Saving Common Cents says

    Taking good care of my skin was a lesson I learned after 40 too. While it’s not TOO late, I so wish I had paid more attention to it when I was younger. It is definitely good advice!

  23. Ourfamilyworld says

    I love L’oreal and I could use these products. I’m interested in trying the firming night cream.

  24. That sounds like a great product. My mom is always asking me about antiaging products so I will have to suggest to her.

  25. I’ve never tried the firming creams before!They would be perfect additions to the upkeep routine

  26. I love L’Oreal, I may try this eye cream when the one I’m using runs out.

  27. mail4rosey says
