Have you seen the movie – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button back in 2009? To summarize, this movie talks about Benjamin’s bizarre and extraordinary life-story as he ages backwards and live his life ‘aging in reverse’.. When he is born, he suffers from several aging diseases and has to live his child-hood in his eighties while he becomes younger when he gets older with time…
As i’m already in my 30s, how i wish i can lead my life-like Benjamin whereby I will look younger when i gets older.. Sad to say, i cannot stop the signs of aging and the best i can do is to age gracefully…. Sooner or later, everyone faces issues with skin sagging and stretching, making you look older than you actually are. While it is often from aging, other factors pre-age such as smoking, over exposure to the sun, and environmental toxins. The good news is that you aren’t powerless in the fight against aging. To fight against aging signs, you can choose between dermatological procedures and skincare solution.
Although undergoing dermatological procedures like botox, IPL and laser can bring instant results, it can be really costly to maintain it on a long-term basis. There are many skincare products in the market that will fight signs on aging but you will start wondering if it works or is it suitable for your age group?
Today, i will be sharing more 3 different product ranges from L’Oreal Paris to target anti-aging for different age groups! Many people like myself know that we have to start using anti-aging products when they hit 25. However, we often find it difficult in choosing the right product to use, mainly also due to the fact that there are so many offerings in the market but not many communicate on the age group suitability. I’m not an exception as i always have the misconception that anti-aging products are too rich products for young skin!. Hence, in this blog post, i would like to give my readers a better understanding on what to look out for and what are the products available.
Are you choosing the right skincare products for your age?

L’Oreal’s tailor-made anti-aging solutions to target the specific skin issues faced at different ages:
For the 25+, L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Laser X 3 mimics the effects of a laser treatment to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkle.. After years of intensive research, L’Oreal Paris laboratories came out with this anti-aging skincare inspired by dermatological procedures. This skincare range contains concentrated powerful anti-aging active Pro-Xylane to provide triple action (Resurface, Correct Wrinkles & Replump) to improve skin’s quality.. This range contains 3% highly concentrated Pro-Xylane and it is proven to be able to correct wrinkles, reduces fine lines, reduce pores visibility, increase skin smoothness and re-plump skin to increase elasticity.
Pro-Xylane is a naturally-derived ingredient from the beech wood plant. By penetrating the extra-cellular matrix that supports skin structure, Pro-Xylane can restore skin’s overall health and suppleness
L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Laser X3 is formulated for the young skin and this range promises to bring about visible efficacy of skin quality transformation. It targets lines, pores and skin roughness.
Do you know that dehydrated skin will accelerate skin aging as the skin’s nature defense weakens which then lead to premature aging. Hence, the use of suitable moisturizer is a MUST to guard skin against aging 24/7.
For younger skin, the L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Laser X3 New Skin Anti-Aging Day Cream has
an innovative and effective triple action* formula that reduces fine lines and pore size, replumps skin and refines skin texture.
*3% concentrated Pro Xylane: A molecule of natural origin sourced from Beechwood which is an extremely powerful anti-ageing molecule to stimulate and strengthen the support fibres of the skin. LHA gently exfoliates to reveal a smooth and even skin tone and Adenosine boosts synthesis of collagen for a more younger looking skin.
At night, the L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Laser X3 Night Cream-Mask will promote and accelerate skin’s rejuvenating power while you sleep. On top of skin rejuvenation, this Night Cream-Mask will help to correct lines, renews skin and minimizes pores. Like the day cream, the night cream-mask contains 3% PRO-XYLANE to improves skin density and plumpness and helps reduce lines and LHA to smoothens pores.
I have incorporated the L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Laser X3 New Skin Anti-Aging Day Cream into my current skincare regime. I like the classy glass red tub packaging and the day cream has a rich creamy texture and it has a distinctive floral scent. Although the texture of the day cream is on the concentrated side, it gets absorbed into my skin rapidly without leaving behind any shiny film. It doesn’t irritate or sting my sensitive skin – no redness after application. It leaves my skin soft, smooth, dewy and well moisturized. There’s no trace of tightness even spending long hours in the office and skin is less oily at the end of the day~ I have skin which clogs very easily but i’m happy to say that the Revitalift Laser x 3 doesn’t cause congestion! Definitely suitable for 25+ to the 30+!
For 40+ years old, the L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Dermalift range is inspired by the self-healing process of Centella Asiatica (renowned for its repairing properties) help to fights signs of aging in 8 key zones to restore youthful skin. The potent combination of anti-aging actives repair, regenerate and fight the signs of aging from within.
Centella Asiatica is also widely used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, with a long history of wide-ranging medical applications. It treats skin issues, wounds, burns and bruises because of its ability to increase the synthesis of collagen, and restore tissue firmness and elasticity, improving skin appearance and comfort.

Besides Centella Asiatica, the L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Dermalift also works in promoting anti-Wrinkle & Firmness with the Dermalift Technology and Pro-Retinol A to actively repair, regenerate and fight the signs of aging from within.
Previously, my mother in law had tried some of the products from this range and here’s her review of the Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Night Cream.

Combined with Pro-Retinal A to help visibly reduce wrinkles and it also stimulates skin’s regeneration so you will wake up to hydrated, supplier and youthful looking skin.
Skin cell renewal and skin rejuvenation will be at its peak at night it is recommended to use this cream at night to achieve the best results. Like many night cream, it comes with a glass tub which my MIL don’t really like it as she must dip her fingers in to get the product. I have told her to use a spatula to prevent contamination.
The night Cream is creamy in texture and has a slight fragrance. My MIL applied this night cream after applying the essence and she’s also using it on her neck. Texture wise, the night cream is rich but it doesn’t leave a heavy / greasy after feel. She told me the feeling is good after she applied both products on as it keep her skin well-moisturized and her skin did not feel tight despite sleeping in an air-conditioner room. When she washes her face the next day, her skin doesn’t feel so tight and is noticeably softer. After using both products for 2 weeks, her skin has a nice glow and it looks much healthier. Not to mention, it is much brighter and youthful (not so dull & haggard looking).
L’Oreal Paris Age Perfect Range is formulated for the 50+ which promotes skin rejuvenation for mature skin.
