It's finally that time!!! Blossoming reviews of products I've used! As a makeup artist and a beauty blogger its imperative to try many different products and find what works best for yourself, your clients and just in general. I actually love reviews because it helps people to formulate an idea of what they may or may not want to buy. Whats better than someone buying what you may have been having your eye on for weeks and revealing to you that hey that item is a dud saving you time or hey this item is fantastic and propelling you into your nearest store to buy your own! I just love reviews hopefully you do too!!
Today's reviews will be on 2 products from the same line. LOREAL's: Revitalift Face & Neck Day Cream
& Revitalift Complete Eye Cream.
Lets start with the Eye Cream:
This product claims to accelerate skin renewal, protect the skin's elastin fibers, and reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles.
Does it work??!!!: ABSOLUTELY!
Here's why it works:
This product contains Pro-retinal A and an Elastin Complex. Its an anti-wrinkle and firming moisturizer for your eye area all wrapped in one!
I started using this product on myself after noticing more than usual puffiness and dark circles under my eyes. No amount of water or sleep was fixing it and I was tired of slathering on concealer. I walked into a local Duane Reade, Rite Aid or CVS (sorry I'm not sure which one but they all sell it.) and ran immediately to the skin care aisle. There were soo many products claiming to do so many things ranging in prices from $5.00 to $50.00 from name brands to generic store brands. I really didn't have a method as to how I picked this product but the packaging and the fact that it gave it's results from research on the side of the box helped! This product claims its immediate results will make the skin around the eyes look revitalized, in 2 weeks 77% of women saw that their skin was firmer and dark circles visibly reduced and in 4 weeks wrinkles are visibly reduced. So I took the mini walk to the checkout counter and purchased it.
As the box stated when I first applied the cream in my under eye area I felt as if I looked more "awake" and my eye area didn't look dehydrated or dry. Within 2 weeks I noticed my under eye area did seem firmer and the dark circles had almost DISAPPEARED! Within 4 weeks I felt as if my my under eye area was renewed! I seemed to have a brightness to my face that had been lost due to lack of sleep and some days i didnt even bother with concealer the under eye circles were literally gone! This is an absolute great product and I would recommend it to others. I do use it for my clients as well when they need a little hydration to their under eye area. Just a dab on your ring finger and patting it underneath the eye until the product is absorbed into the skin is more than enough.
Non-greasy cream texture(absorbs quickly leaving skin feeling smooth)
Safe for contact lens wearers
Fragrance Free(but it still "smells" good)
Retails: $18-$20 for a 0.5 oz(14g) jar
Now for the Day Cream:
This product claims to accelerate skin renewal, protect the skins elastin fibers, provide 24 hrs hydration and soothe dryness.
Does it work??!!!: ABSOLUTELY!!
Here's how it works:
This product contains Pro-retinal A and Elastin Complex. An anti-wrinkle and firming moisturizer for your face all wrapped in one! This product also had its research results on the side of the box. in 2 weeks, 88% of women saw that their skin was firmer and in 4 weeks 90% of women saw that their skin was younger looking! fantastic the fountain of youth in a jar! (maybe not that drastically but it does help keep a youthful toned, tighten and moisturized look. I also use this product on the dry spots of a clients face. I have combination skin: oily in the T zones at times and dry on the lower portion of my cheeks and sometimes chin. This product doesn't produce excess shine or oiliness its a nice smooth finish for your skin. The same results you get for your face you get for your neck.
The story of how I came into contact with this product is the same as above. I purchased these products at the same time. I figured I cant just treat my under eye area I need to treat my entire face AND neck(whats always forgotten about but remember ladies it ages too!) My skin always feels so smooth and healthy after i apply my day cream. I do feel like my face looks well rested, visibly smooth and bright. No more dull sleepy look for me!
Non-greasy cream texture
Non-comedogenic (wont clog pores!)
Retails: $18-$20 for 1.7 oz(48g)
So all in all these are 2 great products: Sherry Blossom approved. If you have stubborn dark circles and puffiness in your under eye area or you want your skin to look, feel and seem firmer and more youthful looking this may be the key for you. Keep in mind that results may vary person to person. Have fun and i hope this review has helped. If I left anything out PLEASE don't hesitate to leave a message, comment or question below or even email me. Thanks for reading. Later Blossoms!
