I recently was selected to trial a few new skincare products thanks to Bazzagent. I was sent two new L’Oreal Revitalift products.

I was sent a dark spot correcting serum and a Broad spectrum SPF.

I was sent two full-size products. Both are new additions to L’Oreal’s Revitalift collection. These are part of the Revitalift Derm Intensive line.

I’ve tried a few dark spot serums in the past. This one is a bit different. It’s a milky consistency and it applies to the skin clear.

User experience

I’ve been using the product for 2 weeks now. The application product is very easy. I opted to only apply it to my problem areas.

It states on the box to apply 2 to 3 drops to your face. You can apply it twice daily. If applied during your morning routine it should be followed with an SPF as your final skincare step (I’ll get more to that in a bit.)

You can follow it up with a moisturizer of your choice.

I found it easiest to apply 3 drops on my hand then dot it onto the problem areas and blend it out. If I felt I needed a bit more I would apply a bit more.

I applied it to my right and left cheek and my neck. That’s where I had a few dark spots.

The serum does have fragrance but it dissipates after a few seconds.

When I applied the serum I didn’t have any adverse reactions such as redness, burning, or overall skin irritation. I liked that it blends out clear and doesn’t leave a sheen on your skin. I also didn’t feel that it left my skin feeling tacky or sticky.

I didn’t have excessive dryness either.

After one week of serum use

After a week of using the product twice daily, I think I noticed a slight change in the darker spots. To be honest it was hard for me to tell since I’d been outdoors in the sun.

With any new skincare product, you may take time to see results. Being that it was only a week of use I felt that my skin did look a bit better.

After two weeks of serum use

I kept using the product twice daily and once I hit the two-week mark I took a new set of photos.

I’ve noticed a bit more of a difference. Some of my darker spots are lighter.

I also took a few photos in natural sunlight so you could see the difference.

Final thoughts and where to buy

Final thoughts

Overall the REVITALIFT DERM INTENSIVES 12% [Niacinamide + Amino Sulfonic + Ferulic Acid] Dark Spot Serum does work but it may take time to see the results.

I think if you have lighter skin you may see quicker results. I didn’t have any major skin issues such as irritation or redness. I liked that the serum didn’t flake or leave any type of oily feeling. The serum scent was okay but may be a bit strong for some folks who are sensitive to scents.

I liked that the serum was easy to apply. It can be applied to the full face or as a spot treatment. I preferred to spot treat.

REVITALIFT DERM INTENSIVES
Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Invisible UV Fluid

REVITALIFT DERM INTENSIVES Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Invisible UV Fluid box with spf bottle.
REVITALIFT DERM INTENSIVES Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Invisible UV Fluid box with SPF bottle.

The second product I was sent was an SPF 50. This product is to be used in combination with the serum.

The product

The REVITALIFT DERM INTENSIVES Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Invisible UV Fluid is a different type of SPF it’s more like a skincare product as opposed to a traditional product. It needs to be shaken and has a nozzle-style application tip.

This is fragrance-free but it does have a slight SPF scent.

The color looks a bit beige when you first remove it from the bottle but when you swipe it onto your hand it turns white.

Ingredients (source L’Oreal product page)

It includes vitamins C and E as well as the following:
Water, Alcohol Denat., Glycerin, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Dimethicone, Butyloctyl Salicylate, Silica, Isononyl Isononanoate, Isopropyl Myristate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Tocopherol, Adenosine, Phenylethyl Resorcinol, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Isocetyl Stearate, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/Vp Copolymer, Caprylyl Glycol, Carbomer, Cetearyl Glucoside, Inulin Lauryl Carbamate, Lecithin, Peg-20, Peg-8 Laurate, Pullulan, Sclerotium Gum, Sodium Dodecylbenzenesulfonate, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, T-Butyl Alcohol, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol Fil V293607/13

User experience

Overall I didn’t have any major issues with this SPF (I’ll get to the ones I did have later). I found it easier to squirt a small amount onto my hand and then apply the SPF that way. Since it’s a thinner consistency it’s more like a skincare product. As opposed to a traditional lotion SPF.

According to the box, this should be your last skincare step. It can be used under makeup as well.

The SPF can be applied o your face and neck. Reapplication may be necessary every two hours. I only applied it once and went about my day because I wasn’t outside for a prolonged period of time.

a few things to note about this SPF

I will note that if you use a heavier moisturizer during the winter months this SPF may not work well with it. I tried it with a moisturizer and I felt that the SPF just sat on my face instead of sinking into the skin. I also felt it left my face looking and feeling a tad oily. SoI ended up using this as a moisturizer. Is it hydrating? A little bit but it’s nothing compared to my typical moisturizer. I tried a moisturizer on top of this but it didn’t work as well because it felt like it sat on the skin.

I did have a few breakouts on my face. I don’t know if it was hormonal acne or if it was a reaction to the product. I had two small pimples on my forehead and a few on my chin.

The formulation of this SPF is a dewy consistency. If your like me and you have dry skin at times dewy isn’t what you want. But again that’s my preference. I also noticed that at times the SPF seemed like it pills a bit on my cheeks. I don’t know if that’s because I applied too much or if I rubbed my face.

It’s Stated to be a companion to the serum mentioned above

The SPF is stated to be a companion product to the serum I mentioned above. Does that mean you can use it alone? Probably so but it’s supposed to help the serum help combat dark spots.

Final thoughts and where to buy

Final thoughts

Overall the REVITALIFT DERM INTENSIVES Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Invisible UV Fluid is different. I liked that I didn’t have a white or gray cast. I’m not a fan of dewy products but that’s just me. I would have liked it to be more hydrating and moisturizing.

I did have a slight breakout using this product. But nothing too major. I did like the lightweight formulation. I also liked that it wasn’t sticky or tacky. It applies evenly and absorbs fairly well. I like the bottle and the applicator.

I’ll have to keep using this product to see how well it works in the end. I didn’t really see any major changes in the dark spots even when used in combination with the serum. I think the serum may have done a better job.

Where to buy

I found that the SPF retails for around $26 USD via L’Oreal. You can also find it at Target. You can see where it can be found near you by visiting the product page.
