Curtain Call: L’Oréal REVITALIFT Triple Power Deep Acting Moisturizer

Today’s Curtain Call post is on a product that I got from Influenster a few months ago. Here’s what I think of L’Oréal REVITALIFT Triple Power Deep Acting Moisturizer.

L’Oréal REVITALIFT Triple Power Deep Acting Moisturizer

The box it comes in states the following about the product:

    DEEP-ACTING MOISTURIZER
    1. REPAIR WRINKLES
    2. RE-FIRM
    3. REDENSIFY
    PRO-XYLANE + HYALURONIC ACID

And on the back:

1. REPAIR WRINKLES
Revitalift Triple Power with Hyaluronic Acid rapidly penetrates skin to help fight each wrinkle.
2. RE-FIRM SKIN
Revitalift Triple Power with Concentrated Pro-Xylane firms and tightens skin.
3. REDENSIFY SKIN
Revitalift Triple Power with Concentrated Pro-Xylane re-volumizes to strengthen skin.

What I love about this product? The packaging is very nice and sturdy although I do worry about it being made of glass. I did drop it once accidentally onto my bathroom tile floor and ut didn’t break. I considered that dumb luck really. I can see some people finding the scent to be on the strong side. I personally didn’t mind the scent and it dissipates after a while. The scent makes me think of soap for the most part. I find it pleasant. The formula of the product is a little bit thicker than most moisturizers I’ve used. Some consider it a face cream and I can see that. To me, it’s something in between a facial moisturizer and face cream. The product goes on nicely and is absorbed really well into my skin. I don’t find it to be greasy at all, which is a big thing for me in my facial care regimen. It definitely keeps my face well moisturized throughout the entire day and every night. It’s perfect to use after I use my PMD, as that requires intense moisturizing after use. Other than that, I can’t really say anything about their claims of repairing wrinkles, re-firming and “redensifying” skin. My skin does feel soft with use. This entire tub lasted me for about 4 months.

What I don’t like about this product? I tested this product for approximately 4 months and the major con for me is that I believe this facial moisturizer is the cause of the breakouts I encountered in 3 separate occasions. The first time it happened, I was a week into trying this product out and I thought to myself “Nah, it’s could be what I’m eating or some other factors…” so I continued with use to determine that. Well, I’ve never had breakouts happen this much in a period of 4 months in over 10 years. So something in the formulation doesn’t really agree with my skin. I know that I’m not the only one who has noticed this but honestly every person’s skin is different so you might actually not encounter this with use. Because of this, while I was glad I had the opportunity to try it out at no cost — I will not be purchasing this in the future.

L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Primer

Hey guys! Long time no write! I’ve just been busy on the last few weeks before the Fall semester starts. I’m really heavy into snail mailing right now and recently got in the latest stamps. The Pet ones are so cute! The last ones I’m waiting for are the Star Trek ones. They didn’t wow me as much so I didn’t wait for that pre-order to become available when I placed my massive order. Today’s post is on something I got from my latest Influenster Vox Box. Here’s L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Primer.

L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Primer

The Influenster insert states the following about the product:

  • INSTANTLY FULLER & LONGER LASHES
  • NOURISHES & CONDITIONS
  • WORKS WITH YOUR MASCARA

PRO TIP: APPLY PRIMER THEN MASCARA TO ONE EYE AT A TIME, BEFORE THE PRIMER DRIES.

What I love about this product? I love that the tube is the same size as the mascara they’re promoting to use with this. The OCD in me is very pleased with that. I also love that the formula is very easy to work with. Just following the directions yielded great results. I was able to see a big difference consistently with using this product. My co-workers noticed the difference and so did my husband. Work fast and with a light, steady hand. Note that the formula is white in color. I haven’t had a problem with that but if you apply mascara too light the white may peek through in that case.

What I don’t like about this product? If you get heavy-handed, you might end up with clumping and the spidery lashes effect. I find that the more I use it though the better I am at gauging how to apply it for best results.

Target Spring 2015 Beauty Box

My Target Spring 2015 Beauty Box came in right after I got back from my honeymooniversary. I missed out on their Winter 2014 one but I saw this when I was looking through my Instagram feed one day when I was at St. John and quickly grabbed my wallet and ordered it with the rental’s Wi-fi. I was so happy that my order went through and the email confirmation showed up in my inbox. I was really happy with last year’s box shown here. I hoped this box is just as good if not better and it did not disappoint! Here’s what I got with mine:

Target Spring 2015 Beauty Box

Everything came in a black reusable sturdy cardboard box. Everyone else I know that got this received the same exact things in it.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream

L’Oréal Infallible® Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray

Maybelline COLOR ELIXIR™ BY COLOR SENSATIONAL®

TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Hair Spray

SheaMoisture Superfruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System Shampoo

I was excited to see the hair products the most. The first item I’ll end up using is probably the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream. I got 5 things for $5 shipped, which is really good. There’s also a $3 off $15 on beauty purchases at Target coupon included in the box, which makes this deal even sweeter. I hope none are damaged as the dry shampoo I got with last year’s box was a dud. It wouldn’t spray anything at all so it must’ve been damaged during shipping or something.

Stick around for some reviews (eventually) on some of these items.


L’Oréal OleoTherapy Shampoo & Conditioner

This is a recent goodie from my Walmart Winter 2014 Beauty Box. Out of everything I got from that box, this left the biggest impression on me. Here’s my take on the L’Oréal OleoTherapy Shampoo & Conditioner.

L’Oréal OleoTherapy Shampoo & Conditioner

What I love about this product? At first, I put off using it because I thought it was just another shampoo and conditioner set. I thought that the oil infused aspect of this new line could be just a gimmick. I only got to try this recently and I noticed a huge difference in my hair. My hair suddenly has pretty decent volume. I honestly didn’t expect that at all especially with the oil infused part of it. I thought it might actually weigh my hair down a bit. The scent is pleasant for both shampoo and conditioner in my opinion. I know not everyone liked the smell on this as it’s less perfume-y I would say. It’s a cleaner type of smell. The texture is actually kinda thick. It squeezed out of the tube and all I can think of is it looked like hair gel. It performs like a champ for me both shampoo and conditioner. My hair is soft and I don’t have problems with the amount of moisture I get from it (hair’s not dry or oily).

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing. I’d actually purchase this again unless my experience with this pair changes.

L’Oréal Miss Pixie

I was trying to clean out some of the polishes on my coffee table at home and stumbled upon this beauty. An online search confirms that this shade is from the L’Oréal limited edition collection called Miss Candy. This is the only one I have being that I remember picking this up on CVS’ winter clearance one year (last year I think). Here’s L’Oréal Miss Pixie.

L’Oréal Miss Pixie

Miss Pixie is straight up a royal blue jelly. The formula is very easy to work with although I got worried when I saw how sheer it was with the first few coats. It’s easily buildable. Just make sure to let it dry in between coats. I did just that until I was satisfied with the color on my nails. Shown is 5 thin coats with no top coat.

I haven’t tried using this in a jelly sandwich manicure but I have a lot of glitter shades that would work well with this!
