I've tried this product and just couldn't get past the smell. It is not pleasant and does not dissipate quickly. I just don't understand why L'Oreal thinks their products need to be so heavily perfumed. I returned this product because of head aches caused by the scent. I would try it again if it came in a fragrance free version.
I'm on my second jar of this, it's great. It moisturizes deeply and has the most luxurious texture. Not quite sure of the anti aging claims but I love this product and also the eye cream. I can't wait until the cell renew products hit the US!
This has 3% proxylane like the expensive lancome absolue creams and it keeps my skin from getting too dry from retin a.
I usually love the Rivatalift line, so I was looking forward to trying this new product. Unfortunately this did not work for me.
First of all, I noticed when applying it that it left white flakey balls on my skin. Secondly, although this cream is very thick and luxurious feeling, it did not moisturize my skin one iota. It only made my skin feel very dry and irritated all day. Plus, I noticed the beginnings of a zit on my chin.
I will go back and use the orginal Rivatalift day cream and night cream. They work really well for me.
Beautifully packaged in a red jar, high end feel. The fragrance is so strong and nasty, however, it overwhelms the beautiful smooth feeling the cream leaves. It goes on and absorbs well. But it so sad. I wanted to like it. But the unnecessary perfume, which is a common irritant and useless for anyone with asthma or sensitive skin makes this a non-starter. So sad.
I didn't find this cream very beneficial at all. My skin actually looks much worse after using for about 3 wks. It's not very moisturizing at all. I didn't see any lifting qualities either. After using for 3 wks, my skin is dryer, more prone to breakouts, and blotchy. I give up...back to my Avon products. I so wanted to like this because of the price, but it's just not for me..
PROS: Price isn't horrible. Smells MUCH less perfumey than the Age Perfect line. Looks like it has anti-aging ingredients (but I'm not expert on these. I do tend to trust L'oreal somewhat because I had good results with their Age Perfect line.) Feels moisturizing but not greasy. Nice, rich texture. Packaging is good-looking.
CONS: I am probably in the minority with my sensitive skin, but this caused burning for me. There's only one other moisturizer I've ever tried that caused burning, the alpha hydroxy one that is so popular. But I've tried a lot of different one, and only two have given me the burning reaction. Some won't like that it's in a jar, but I apply with clean hands anyway.
ALTERNATES: L'Oreal's Age Perfect line is great but very perfumey. There's a light night cream by Dr. Lewinn by Kinerase at Walmart and Walgreens. My new love is Derma e's Hyaluronic Acid line (day and night cream).
