Product Review: L’Oreal Skin Perfection Advanced Serum

photo 4

I’ve been using the L’Oreal Skin Perfection Advanced Correcting Serum for just over a month now.  I had originally tried my mom’s serum and really liked it, so decided to get an age appropriate version for myself.  I’m also on a budget, so it needed to be something affordable!

L’Oreal have recently released the Skin Perfection range designed for women in their 20s and 30s, and the Advanced Correcting Serum seemed like the perfect choice.  Also, it contains LR 2412 – which is the active ingredient in Lancôme’s Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector – it’s not at the 4% that Lancôme advertise but it’s also not at the EUR73 price point either!

So here’s what it looks like:

The serum actually looks pearlescent, you can see on the left the tiny glossy specks of pink throughout.  As you blend it, it appears to turn a light pink colour.  It goes onto the skin really nicely, and it’s not at all greasy or oily!

What it claims to do:

*Within 1 Minute Skin Feels Softer!

*Within 1 Week Pores Visibly Tightened!

*Within 1 Month Skin Looks More Even

What I saw:

*My skin definitely feels smoother and softer, no question!

*My skin tone also looks brighter, and I’m pretty sure lighter too – (which is not something I expected at all).  It seems to have less red patches too so my skin tone definitely looks more even to me!

*Pores Slightly Refined!  I have particularly large pores, so I don’t expect miracles.  I think I only really notice this is the before and after photo – but I think the pores on my nose are slightly less visible after!  Still a long way to go with the pores I think!

BEFORE AND AFTER:

I will continue to use this until it’s finished – by that time I’m sure I’ll have decided whether I’m repurchasing or trying something new!  Look out for my next post which will be a January Favourites!

  2. I am aware of L’Oreal products but I am not familiar with Skin Perfection Advanced Serum. I am glad that the brand came up with the serum that is appropriate for my age. And the result looks great on you. I am not sure if I could be able to purchase this if it has euro price. I guess I will check online shops for it.
