Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about this line-plumping formula

The product

It seems that when the first signs of ageing become apparent we’re bombarded with advice telling us to aggressively address the issue with highly potent actives. 

But the truth is if you can get your hands on an anti-ageing formula with low doses of active ingredients that is gentle enough to use daily – you’re doing a good job. 

L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Laser Retinol + Niacinamide Pressed Night Cream combines powerhouse anti-ageing ingredients retinol and  niacinamide with hyaluronic acid to combat those first signs of ageing without stressing your skin out further. The idea here is to start low and slow and amp up your use as your tolerance increases. 

With continued use you’ll notice a minimisation in the depth of fine lines and wrinkles, an improvement in tone and texture, and skin will appear more hydrated and nourished too. 

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this retinol-infused night cream.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Laser Retinol + Niacinamide Pressed Night Cream to a panel of women aged 30 and older who are experiencing the first signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, uneven skin tone, dull skin and dryness.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Laser Retinol + Niacinamide Pressed Night Cream.

The way it plumped and hydrated skin: Reviewers noticed how hydrating the night cream was immediately after use, with many of them commenting on how soft and plump their skin felt the morning after application.

It improved skin tone and texture: Review Crew® members with pigmentation, uneven skin tone and texture said their skin felt smoother and softer, and they noticed an improvement in clarity with continued use.

The hygienic press-pump dispenser: Funnily enough, a number of reviewers loved the novelty of the hygienic press-pump dispenser. They relished the fact that they didn’t have to remove rogue dollops of face cream from underneath their fingernails.

The verdict

“I used L’Oreal’s Pressed Cream Night Retinol + Niacinamide treatment as directed, and increased the frequency of use each week. I am happy to say that I did not have any adverse reactions which is uncommon with my sensitive skin. The product is packaged in a pump jar which is easy to use and prevents waste and overuse. The cream itself is lightweight with a pleasant fragrance. It was easily absorbed by my skin and made my skin feel plump and hydrated. My skin's clarity has also definitely improved and I can see some improvement in some dark spots on my face.”

“It glided so effortlessly on to my skin with no irritation or redness experienced. My skin felt nourished, soft and hydrated even only after a few applications. Fine lines and dark skin spots did appear to fade somewhat after a short period of use and I look forward to more fantastic results with prolonged use. Wonderful price point and an essential addition to a mature skin routine.”

“I use a high strength retinol at the moment which I use 3 times a week. I found with this product that I could use this nightly. The smell and texture is very nice, a pea size amount is all you need. I found this amount covered my face and neck amply. The price on this product was a great surprise, is worth what you pay, packing is excellent and a decent size. I would highly recommend giving this a go especially for anyone new to retinol products… after one week of use I have seen a great improvement with my skin.”
