I am participating in a Vibrant Influencer Network campaign for L’Oreal Age Perfect. I am receiving a fee for posting; however, the opinions expressed in this post are my own. I am in no way affiliated with L’Oreal Age Perfect and do not earn a commission or percent of sales.
For the last two weeks I’ve stopped using my regular skin care regimen and used the L’Oreal Age Perfect Glow Renewal Lotion in place of my regular day lotion, the L’Oreal Age Perfect Glow Renewal Day/Night Cream in place of my regular night cream, and and L’Oreal Age Perfect Facial Oil as needed. I kept using my normal face wash and occasionally my regular eye cream because it makes may makeup go on better.
At first, my face was way too oily. Though my skin is not as oily as it was when I was younger, I still definitely still have oily skin. To fix the too-oily situation I cut way back on the amount of product I applied, especially the Facial Oil. I chalk all this up to user error. Once I started using less, I had good results.
I think my skin is in good shape for my age, and I already use good skincare, but I liked the softness I noticed now that I’m using the Age Perfect products.
The Renewal Lotion smells lightly of sunscreen, but not so much that it bothered me. And of course it does, since it is SPF 30. That’s a great daily sun protector, I think.
The Day/Night Cream has a perfumed scent, but it smells rich. Again, the scent dissipates after application, but it is stronger than the scent of the Day/Night Cream. Both the Lotion and the Cream dry without an oily finish. You can rub it on your hands and then touch things without them slipping or getting greasy.
The oil is exactly like…oil. You apply it from a dropper, and a little bit goes a long way. A good way to apply it is to rub a drop or two between your palms and then pat your hands on your skin. I found this works better than trying to rub a drop around my face.
I know the oil is Facial Oil, but I love it on my legs and the back of my hands. My hands are nice and smooth, and I credit that to using the same skin care on them that I use on my face, including daily sunscreen and nightly creams and/or oils. This Facial Oil is particularly good on hands, too. I don’t need it as much on my face, but I’ll continue to use it on my hands and legs, especially as the air gets more dry here.
All three of these products are oil-infused. Except for initially using too much, I didn’t notice any problems. No sensitivity or breakouts. When I woke up in the morning my skin felt soft and firm. I’ve been applying it to my face, neck, and chest as well as my hands and legs. I may add in my elbows now that it’s cold.
So far, I’m happy with these products. I’ll continue to use them and report my progress over two future posts.
