Lately, I’ve been a little more serious about my skincare routine. In the past, I just threw on a bit of sunscreen and left it at that. Now that I’m in my early 30s, I’m beginning to use more night creams and eye serums. I don’t have a wrinkle problem (yet), but I can see where they’ll begin to crop up in the near future.
One of the things I love about Influenster is that I’m given the opportunity to test out products that I may not try otherwise. I’ve always been curious about L’Oreal’s Revitalift line, so when Influenster let me know I would be receiving the Volume Filler products I was excited.
I’ve been testing out the items for about a month now. I can’t speak to whether these products will smooth out lines and wrinkles as claimed, but I’ll let you know my thoughts on some of the other claims (along with my general opinion) below.
First up is the Day Cream, which contains concentrated Hyaluronic Acid and Fibroxyl and works to “replenish skin’s fullness” and “smooth lines and fine wrinkles”. Of the four products, this was the least effective for me, mostly because I wasn’t able to use it as a day cream. I have fairly oily skin and the cream felt too heavy on my face. I could use it on days when I wouldn’t need to apply makeup, but even then my face felt oily for a few hours after application. However, this product is meant to help with moisture retention, so the results weren’t a shock to me. If you have combination to dry skin, I imagine this day cream would be perfect for you.
It’s also worth noting that these creams and serums have a light scent. It didn’t bother me, but if you’re sensitive to skincare with fragrances, I figured I’d let you know.
Next up, we have the Concentrated Serum and the Eye Treatment. Right up front, I love both of these products.
The Concentrated Serum is for use all over the face and is “infused with a high dose of purified Hyaluronic Acid” to improve skin’s fullness and smoothness. Despite being a serum, I was able to use this in the morning (or evening) without it leaving my skin oily/greasy. It also made my skin feel smoother. I really appreciated the packaging; the serum is dispensed via a pump the bottom of the tube.
I was also able to use the Eye Treatment both morning and night. It contains both Hyaluronic Acid and caffeine to “replenish undereye hollows, reduce sunken shadows, and firm eye contour”. The results were actually impressive. I noticed that my undereye area was less puffy after a couple of weeks. As with the serum, the packaging on this product is nice. It’s a simple squeeze tube, but the end has a nice tip that helps to dispense just the right amount of product.
The last product is the Night Cream. Like the other products, it contains Hyaluronic Acid and its’ purpose is to “boost hydration and skin volume when you sleep”. While the cream did feel heavy on my skin (similar to the day cream), I put it on before I went to sleep so it wasn’t an annoyance. I believe being able to use this night cream was a big factor in the overall results.
The only criticism I have is the packaging. The day cream comes in a heavy glass jar with a nice purple lid, while the night cream is in a rather plain plastic squeeze tube. I feel that, for the price (around $25/item), it should have also come in a glass jar. The tube just looks a bit cheaper in comparison.
Overall, I was pleased with the Revitalift Volume Filler line. Even though I couldn’t use the Day Cream as frequently as I wanted to, I was happy with the results from the rest of the products. They left my skin feeling more smooth, soft, and even than usual.
