The budget-friendly secret to younger-looking skin
Advertorial: No laser or needles needed
When it comes to looking after our skin and maintaining a youthful appearance, we’re pretty spoilt for choice. From shopping the supermarket aisle for skin care products, to investing in professionally-administered cosmetic procedures, we really can take our pick.
But chances are you have a couple of wish list requirements from your skin care routine, which will greatly influence your approach to fighting the signs of ageing.
Let us take a wild guess: money and time, paired with seeing real results, are of the utmost importance to you.
In which case, cosmetic procedures probably aren’t going to float your boat. They can be quite expensive and require you to regularly visit a professional. That’s cash and commitment that may not necessarily fit within your budget. And while you may see results reasonably quickly, you might also experience some downtime post-treatment.
What may be more manageable when it comes to the whole budget-results conundrum is looking into skin care products that offer some serious results. And that’s where the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Laser X3 range comes in. To start, it comprises of five products that cost less than $50 each (a big tick for your budget-friendly criteria); there’s a serum, eye cream, two day cream variants (one with SPF 15 and one without) and a night cream. Oh, and you can pick up all of these Revitalift Laser X3 skin care products when you do your next grocery shop. Convenience plus.
Now for the best bit: This range was found to deliver comparable results to a CO2 fractional laser session when used for four weeks in a L’Oréal Paris study*. So it rivals a premium professional treatment and you can expect to see results in one month.
One customer, Kate from NSW, put this claim to the test and applied the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Laser X3 range to one side of her face daily for four weeks, and on the other side of her face she had one session of Laser Skin Resurfacing (combined with basic moisturisation). At the end of the trial she compared the results and while she was pleased with how her skin looked on both sides of her face, she said of L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Laser X3 range: “You can get similar results without the pain”.
What makes the Revitalift Laser X3 range a real anti-ageing winner is the carefully selected ingredients that go into each of the products. There’s fragmented hyaluronic acid to visibly repair and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, anti-wrinkle active adenosine to increase collagen production and boost elastin for firmer, denser skin, and Pro-Xylane, which stimulates and strengthens the support fibres of the skin to re-densify it. In short, you’ve got a powerhouse combo of ingredients that are working to reduce wrinkles, re-densify skin, and firm the contours of your face.
Not too shabby, right? We even sent the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Laser X3 SPF15 to our Review Crew® and they gave it an impressive 4-star rating – you can read what they had to say about the anti-ageing moisturiser here.
