I love trying out serums instead of moisturizers, as serums absorb more easily into the skin, are known to be more effective and it allows me to continue using my tried and trusted “safe” moisturizer. I just reviewed the Day cream from this range. Thought I’d give you the head’s up on the serum as well. So that you can take a call to pick them up together – or not!!

I don’t know the individual price as I picked a whole kit of daycream + Serum + eyecream from Bangkok Duty Free for about 1980 Baht.
The product comes in a 30ml bottle packaging.
The super serum comes in a heavy glass bottle with a pump dispenser and a plastic cap in gun-metal colour – giving it a metal look. It looks uber cool and classy. I use a couple of pumps to cover my full face and neck
My experience with L’OrealRevitalift Laser Renew Advanced Anti-Ageing Super Serum
Claims-wise, L’Oreal say using their serum twice a day for two months can improve wrinkle depth almost as well as a single session with a CO2 laser.Like I mentioned earlier, I prefer trying new serums but sticking to known moisturizers. In summers, sometimes, I actually skip the moisturizers totally and let the serum take care of its targeted work as well as moisturizing.
Loreal recommends using the serum, day cream and eye cream in tandem for best results. However, I started using the day cream way before I started on the serum as I was still using my Estee Lauder Idealist Pore Minimizer (reviewed for you earlier). So I am able to share with you the efficacy of the products on their own and in tandem.
This one’s fairly thick for a serum – almost creamy. It takes a while to get absorbed. You have to rub it in. This was quite in contrast to the Estee Lauder serum which used to vanish into my skin. This one took some time to settle. For reference, I have oily/combination skin.The serum has a silicone fell to it – which was a given considering it’s the third listed ingredient. Still, overall the texture is slightly heavy. Post absorption, there is no shine nor does it have a matte finish– its just normal skin. However, due to the presence of silicones, it make sthe foundation go on more smoothly – though it doesn’t really prolong makeup wear much.
What skin type will it suit? I think this one being heavy, will suit all skintones. However, people with oily skin tones may skip the moisturizer post applying this.
I have been using it since last 1.5 month. In terms of efficacy, the product worked just okay for me. While, it did make the skin feel brighter, there was one huge issue which kept recurring for me…more on that in a while. Within continued usage, the skin felt tauter and more plumper and the fine lines, slightly reduced. However, I did not feel that the action of the serum was more pronounced than that of the day cream. Serums are supposed to have higher potency of the same ingredients – showing results in shorter time. This was definitely not the case with me. The silicones in the product, make more “appear” smaller but don’t really work on reducing them. And the biggest drawback of the product was that it kept breaking me out!! Whenever I used it, it resulted in 1-2 eruptions around my chin area. I stopped using it for a week and then started again – same result! Please note, I have used products with silicone in them before – without them breaking me out. So its definitely not the silicone but something else. And considering it breaks me out, it goes counter-productive towards getting an even skin tone.
Pros of L’OrealRevitalift Laser Renew Advanced Anti-Ageing Super Serum:
- Can be used day and night.
- Reduces the fine lines.
- Re-plumps the skin surface.
- Brightens the skin tone.
- Silicones make the pores “appear” smaller.
Cons of L’OrealRevitalift Laser Renew Advanced Anti-Ageing Super Serum:
- Takes a while to get absorbed.
- Breaks me out.
- High on silicone content.
- Heavy glass packaging is not travel friendly.
A 2.5/5 product!
While this may work for some – if it doesn’t break them out. I am not recommending this product on 2 main parameters – it breaks me out and I feel the day cream to be a better product than this. So if you are in the market for anti-ageing skin care, I suggest you try the cream and skip this.
