DO NOT USE!
there was really nothing moisturizing about this probuct.
it did however have the ability to burn my skin. i do not mean I felt a burning sensation upon using it, It literaly burnt the skin around my eyes and mouth. Around my eyes the skin is now brown and starting to peal. The skin around my mouth is extremely red and pealing and I have now started to develop severe breakouts. my face feels very hot all the time now and I have headaches and I have saught medical attention.
. I have seen reviews of others this has happened to.
DO NOT USE!

So I have been using this for a week now, and I just love it! Not sure if it really works, but the 'cone ingredients lock in the glycerin for sure. I really like how makeup glides over it. I have two age spots on my right temple, and I swear they are getting lighter!! I really like the bottle, and the glass bottle with the dropper feels elegant, what can I say? I also like the creamy consistency vs. clear serums, as well as a less tight feeling due to its moisturizing properties. I really like that I got this on sale, and splurged, even though I am 36 and this is for mature skin. I'm using it during the winter of Nemo 2013 in New England, so I feel its working in one of the harshest environments. 1 Lippie off due to paraben ingredients, 1 off for not having a more sanitary pump. Otherwise, love it!

I received this as a sample in a magazine. It felt nice going on, but it formed little balls and flakes on my skin soon after. I also find the smell oppressive. It's a potent floral which might be OK for a shampoo or body wash, but it's way too intense to be on your face. Lastly, it contains parabens, which i'm steer away from due the the studies that show they mimic estrogen. It's easy enough to find an alternative that does not contain parabens.

I purchased this on a buy 1 get 1 sale at a local store. I wasn't expecting much, since I have mixed results with L'oreal products. I was pleasantly surprised. This is now an everyday part of my regime. I normally prefer serums over moisturizers, but have noticed I do need a bit more moisture lately. This provides both. It gives my skin noticable improvement in texture, and tone while also providing moisture without feeling sticky, tacky or heavy.

A realy bad smelling product , i had a headache after using it! The only good thing about it is the moisturing effect.

I use this serum about a week now and, it has all the good feeling like other said here, only thing worry me to death is that there are at least 4 kind of parabens , read info from fda and other site about paraben, special it can mimic hormone of you body , that really scared. I am not sure I will buy again, but I will use off this one for all good way made my skin LOOKS like.
btw, I read other member worry about soy in serum, in my opinion , soy is very good for your well-being, Japanese women eat soy all the time , they have lowest breast cancer rate in the world. (if I remember right) , it is one first reason I purchase this serum at beginning.

Actually liked the way this soaked up on my skin but then read all the ingredients. It includes methylparaben which is horrible for your skin long term...ah well back to looking for a good serum. Bare minerals and eclos up next.

PROS: Helps seal in moisture. Seems to maybe plump up my skin just a bit. I use it under my spf lotion in the a.m. (Says it has a very strong concentration of the good "stuff" in the Age Perfect line (that's supposed to help so much with firming, luminosity and moisture.) Great for those who don't want the heavier creams. Gives an extra oomph of anti-aging properties before I apply my cream. Helping my age spots.
CONS: The smell is a little perfumey. (I've gotten used to it, though.) Unfortunately, this has caffeine in it. I'm very sensitive to caffeine, even in topical products.
ALTERNATES: I also like Dr. Lewinn by Kinerase Lift and Resculpt Serum (I think that's the name.) for anti-aging and antioxidant treatment. For lightening, I like Dr. Lewinn by Kinerase Skin Tone Perfecting Serum. I've recently fallen in love with Derma E's Hyaluronic Serum.

Can't live without it (unfortunately cause of the price). I used to use botox but my skin is just as fabulous with this stuff so it might be saving me money ;)
I love the factthat you can use it before your regular creams or treatments so it's like a little extra mosturizer that adds to whatever cream you prefer- even acnetreatments.

Sorry I bought this. It was expensive ($12) for small bottle. The worst of it is it smells to high heavens like a French Baudy House. Why don't consmetics companies realize we do not want heavy perfume on our FACE.
Look: If we like perfume we will buy one we like and NOT apply it next to our nose!
I washed off the product after 2 hrs. The heavy smell gave me a headache. My face itched all day after. I will never buy this product or another L'Oreal face product. I believe they are everpriced anyway.

I purchased my 3rd bottle today. This is a great product. I have combo skin (normal with an oily t-zone), and my cheeks tend to get slightly dry in the winter. I have hyperpigmentation and a few fine wrinkles on my forehead and the start of a few crows feet. This serum has faded my hyperpigmentation ever so slightly and my wrinkles are much less noticeable. I am really surprised this works so well for me. It is also very comfortable to wear and moisturizes without feeling greasy. I was contemplating switching to EL for my skincare, but I think I'll stay with this as long as it continues to give these good results.

Move over, Prescriptives Line Preventor serum! Oh wait, I take that back, it IS moving over. Or OUT, to be exact. I used the PX serum for many years and went through many bottles. Now that the entire line is due to be discontinued, I was hoping I could find a nice serum that would work for my increasingly dry skin. I always start my skincare routine with a serum over my freshly-cleansed skin, and from there I use a moisturizer with sunscreen, and sometimes after that a luminizer (like PX Vibrant C or an Armani Fluid Sheer) and then foundation. In warmer weather I skip the luminizer and just use a primer under my foundation. I saw an ad on TV for this L'Oreal serum and could not wait to try it. Yes, I'm one of those mature ladies who are the target audience for the Age Perfect line. This product is wonderful and did not disappoint in any way. It feels so comfortable on my skin and adds that bit of hydration I need when moisturizers just don't seem to be enough right now. My skin glows and looks healthy and fresh. I absolutely love the clear glass dropper-style bottle. This product smooths on easily and it dries quickly on me. It has not clogged my pores, and sometimes it is all I need under a tinted moisturizer. I can't say it helps with any wrinkles because I really don't have bad wrinkles. I'll be repurchasing and hoping it stays around on the drugstore shelves for a long time. These thin serums work really well for me, and finding one at the drugstore is a rare thing! This serum works as well as, if not better, than Super Line Preventor, at a fraction of the price, and I'll be watching for a drugstore sale to stock up on it (another bonus for loving a drugstore skincare item!) Highly recommended for ladies with dry skin who need a bit more moisture!

I LOVE the entire L'Oreal Age Perfect Skincare Line! I had been using Estee Lauder skincare for over 35 years, changing products (within the EL line), as my skin changed with age. I was spending LOTS of $$$ on the Re-Nutriv line, up until about 8 months ago. Never having used a drugstore brand of skincare, I was skeptical. But, why not try it??? I bought the Age Perfect Re-Cushioning Serum, Age Perfect Day Cream SPF15, Age Perfect Night Cream, and Age Perfect Eye Cream. I have been using these products for 8 months now, religiously, day and night. My skin actually looks BETTER than when I was using the EL products! AND... I am saving TONS of money! LOVE this serum! I use one big drop on my entire face, and one big drop on my throat and neck. Of course, then the moisturizer (throat and neck, too!), and eye cream. My skin looks and feels great! My pores are not visible at all, my skin is moisturized (but not sticky), and my skin has this amazing glow to it! YES, L'Oreal, I love your Age Perfect products! (NOTE: My skin is somewhat sensitive, so I do not use the Age Perfect Cleansers. They have exfoliants in them, which irritate my skin.) Sometimes, one of the local drugstores runs a sale - $9.99 for each product. I am able to buy this entire skincare line for under $50.

So far, I like this. Been using it for 3 weeks. I have VERY dry skin and was looking for a drug store alternative to Estee Lauder or another upper end serum. (I wanted a serum, not a cream)
This hydratess and plumps my skin super well and hasn't casued any breakouts. So far, I'm singing its praises.

I've been looking for new skincare products now that Neutrogena has been revamping their line and ditching or reformulating some of my old favorites. I've also come to the conclusion that retinols are just not for me (having fine, thin Irish skin, I'm guessing that a product that ultimately thins the skin is not a good choice for me), so I've been searching for other workhorse treatment products. I believe this is a fairly new addition to the Age Perfect line, and I thought why not? I haven't given L'Oreal skincare a try in ages -- maybe they've improved. Also, there are very good reviews for the more basic Age Perfect moisturizers here at MUA.
So...to begin with, this is more of a lightweight moisturizer than a serum, although I absolutely appreciate the dearth of the usual litany of '-cones' most serums are chock full of these days. It comes in a glass bottle with an old-fashioned dropper for dispensing. Not great, but at least you don't get stuck with a pump that refuses to pump or a pump that automatically dispenses more product than you need to use. It's fragranced like the rest of the Age Perfect line, although the fragrance dissipates fairly quickly.
Performance-wise, the stuff feels fabulous. It is absorbed immediately, leaves the skin feeling smooth and soft, and would be enough on it's own for all but super dry skin, IMO. It's got great moisturizing products and botanicals, it's not sticky, it's not that horrible primer-y, silicone-y, mattifying stuff that just sits there making you look deader than a dead thing that's been dead for a very long time, and it never broke me out the entire two weeks I used it. All good so far, right?
Well, here's the weird part: being a woman of a certain age and coming from a long line of women who experience early menopause, I am at that wonderful time when the hot flashes and night sweats are beginning to make an appearance in my life. Oh joy. Usually just one or two incidents during each cycle, but still kinda freaky, ya know? They always occur during the week before my period. Well, that was the second week I used this stuff. Oh boy, did I have the night sweats...I put this stuff on and it was night sweat sessions several times a night. Then I remembered that one of the main ingredients in this serum was a soy seed extract. Because breast cancer runs rampant in my family, I avoid eating soy products religiously. I had no idea topical soy extracts could affect a person like this stuff affected me!
I stopped using the serum immediately and my hormonal reaction ceased at once. Scary, huh?
Disclaimer: I am not a medical professional and I know there are studies showing benefits of soy and others claiming the phytoestrogens in soy can actually be dangerous. All I know is, for me, this product definitely had a weird impact on hormonal symptoms. Just sayin'...
So...all in all, a great little lightweight moisturizer, but if you're concerned about soy in your skin care products, this is definitely not for you.
