Hi guys! Quite a few weeks ago now I was sent the L’Oreal Revitalift Bright Reveal products that you see above complimentary by Influenster for review. I’ve been using them exclusively for the past few weeks and I’m at a point where I’ve developed an opinion on them that I’m ready to share!
I followed the routine that Influenster suggested in order to get a grasp on how well these products work:
Now, let’s take a look at each individual item!
L’Oreal | Revitalift Bright Reveal Brightening Scrub Cleanser
My normal routine does not include exfoliating every day as it damages the skin, however, to follow the suggested routine, I gave it a shot. Over time I did not notice any damage to my skin, though I have gone back to my usual once or twice a week routine now that I’m done testing. The granules in this scrub feel fairly gentle and are used sparingly in the scrub, so you’re not getting as deep (or harsh) of an exfoliating as you would with say… St. Ive’s Apricot Scrub. The cleanser itself is almost gel-like so it tones down the harshness as well. My skin felt clean and smooth after using this nightly. The only thing I didn’t like about it as it was a bit difficult to get all the granules off my face while rinsing.
More specifically, the active ingredients of this are Perlite and Glycolic Acid to exfoliate your skin’s dullness and impurities to assist in improving texture and complexion. As I said earlier, my skin does feel smooth after using this.
L’Oreal | Revitalift Bright Reveal Brightening Peel Pads
The next step in this routine is to use the Brightening Peel Pads. These pads, I found were saturated with just the right amount of the product so that you could feel it on your skin, but the pads were not dripping. I appreciated this as you would not want to get this in your eyes! You use the pads in a circular motion on your face to chemically exfoliate your skin. I found this was great as it got what the scrub missed!
The Brightening Peel Pads contain 10% Glycolic Complex which is what gently exfoliates the dead skin cells away. It’s said to resurface uneven skin. I don’t have a lot of issues with uneven skin so I can’t really comment on this claim. But, you can see on the pads that it does exfoliate, and I found it picked up what the very gentle scrub missed.
L’Oreal | Revitalift Bright Reveal Brightening Dual Overnight Moisturizer
This is by far my favourite product of the set. The Brightening Dual Overnight Moisturizer combines two treatments in one single pump. I’ve always liked the idea of having two products combined into one, and the double chambers feels quite luxurious for the price point. It dispenses in an almost 1 to 1 ratio and one pump is the perfect amount for my face. After all that exfoliating, my skin felt balanced and restored after applying this.
Now to the specifics… This product contains 4% Glycolic Acid, Vitamin Cg and Pro-Retinol. So, it is supposed to penetrate the skins surface to remove dead skin cells (we are REALLY making sure those are gone with this routine) and then to infuse the skin with a brightening formula to rejuvenate the skin overnight. I felt that this product definitely moisturized and restored my skin, particularly after all that exfoliating.
L’Oreal | Revitalift Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Lotion
For a routine like this, the last step is essential. A daily lotion infused with SPF to protect your skin from UVA/UVB rays. This product can be used under makeup or by itself. I found it absorbed quickly into the skin, which is essential in my rushed morning routine. Having oily skin, I’m always cautious of new moisturizers as I try to control my oil as much as possible. This moisturizer did not add any extra oil to my face so I had no issues.
The key ingredient in this product is… did you guess? Glycolic Acid! This product is said to overtime, brighten skin and make it look more radiant, while keeping it hydrated. My skin definitely felt hydrated and as I said before, this did not cause extra oil so my foundation wore as usual.
Overall, I’d continue to use these Revitalift Bright Reveal products, but I’m not sure if I would repurchase them. I feel like if you had dry skin, you’d probably see more of a difference in your skin after using this. Since I’m more on the oily-side, I don’t have a lot of texture to my skin. They are pretty reasonable in price, in my opinion. They retail for about $9 to $21 on Amazon.ca which I consider to be reasonable for drugstore skincare. I haven’t looked for this in Shopper’s Drug Mart yet so I’m not sure how the pricing compares.
