The L’Oreal Revitalift Filler Hyaluronic Acid Anti-Wrinkle Serum is supposedly the best selling serum in the USA (according to Cosmopolitan), and seeing as my skin loves anything containing hyaluronic acid, I decided to give it a try to see what the fuss was all about.
“Discover our ultimate anti-wrinkle serum, charged with 1.5% pure Hyaluronic Acid to intensely hydrate skin, smooth and replump wrinkles. This is no ordinary serum; the formula contains two types of Hyaluronic Acid for high performance.“
This is one pricey skincare product for a hyaluronic acid serum… it’s £24.99, and I hold my hands up, I’d never pay that much for an L’Oreal skincare product, especially with the likes of The Ordinary and The Inkey List.
However, I managed to get the serum for £10 when Boots had one of their £10 Tuesday special deals on, and for £10, it was definitely something I wanted to snap up and try, even more so as I had Boots Advantage Card points, so technically, it was free.
The L’Oreal Revitalift Filler Hyaluronic Acid Anti-Wrinkle Serum is housed within a lilac glass bottle, with a pipette dispenser. It has the viscosity of any hyaluronic acid, in that it’s runny and almost stretchy, making it very easy to smooth over the skin. I find a little goes a long way, and half a pipette is more than enough serum for my face, neck and backs of my hands.
There’s no noticeable scent, and it absorbs nice and quickly. It does leave the skin feeling tacky after application, but I’m yet to find a hyaluronic acid that doesn’t, but it doesn’t hinder my makeup application. If I had to describe the product in one word, it’d be nice. I don’t dislike it, but I haven’t been wowed by it.
I think that’s because of how amazing The Ordinary Acid 2% +B5 Serum (full review right here) is, and that one is £6.40 for the same amount of product. It actually contains more pure hyaluronic acid, and this L’Oreal Revitalift Filler Hyaluronic Acid Anti-Wrinkle Serum is £25. They perform pretty similarly, offering decent hydration and a noticeable plumping effect, but is the L’Oreal serum worth £18.59 more? Absolutely not.
