There are lots of SPF face products on the market, this one is specifically for those trying to fade dark marks/ spots and reminds me of the Olay Regenerist Flawless SPF30 -which I loved for a long time until my skin decided to turn dry on me – because it includes niacinamide (vitamin B3) which helps fade discolourations. The texture of this is much more hydrating in comparison to Olay and leaves my skin feeling very comfortable.

How I applied this: I apply half a pump to my cheeks, as I have darks marks from breakouts there, and then take another half pump and apply all over my face, then another half pump for my décolletage. As I have been using the peeling lotion at night I use SPF regularly (mainly in an effort to fade dark marks) when I am not wearing makeup and top up with powder with SPF when I am wearing makeup.

The bottle design has a pump which can be turned and locked (yay for lockable lid-less pumps!). Also, the pump can be controlled to dispense how much product you want (another yay!). The feel of the product is light with a very subtle scent, is very easy to apply, absorbs without leaving any residual greasiness on face and no whitecast, I repeat, no whitecast at all, on my nc30 skin.

Here is the product description from boots.com:

“Introducing new Revitalift Laser Renew Anti-Wrinkle + Anti-Dark Spot skincare regime. Helps stimulate skin surface cell renewal leaving your skin’s past behind. With patented 3% Pro-Xylane. Appears to help protect from premature skin ageing. Proven Effectiveness. Wrinkles appear reduced. Reduces the look of dark spots and helps prevent new ones from forming. Clarifies, skin tone looks brighter.

How to use: Apply the Global Day Cream SPF25 every morning to a thoroughly cleansed face in circular motions. To complete your regime:

– To refine the look of your skin apply Laser Renew peeling lotion nightly.

– For intense action, apply Laser Renew Super Serum before this Global Care SPF25.

– For targeted action, use Laser Renew Precision Eye Pen around the eyes.”

Summary after using for 3-4 days: I have not used this again, as it did break me out a little. I ran the ingredients through CosDNA and found that it contains Isopropyl Isostearate, which is rated 5 for Acne causing and 0 for Irritant. I have passed this on to my mum and she loves it, and also finds it performs better for dry skin than the Olay Flawless, which she also loved for fading dark spots.

L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Laser Renew Peeling Lotion Night 125ml

L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Laser Renew Peeling Lotion Night, £24.99 (currently£16.66 on offer)

This is like a emulsion/toner, and if you know the purpose of Alpha H Liquid Gold then you will be pleased to hear this is like a drugstore version of the cult favourite. It isn’t much cheaper, but seen as it will be stocked in boots makes it more readily available, and boots always have those offers that suck us in. I think this is not as strong – 3% glycolic acid – as Liquid gold as it doesn’t sting on application at all, so perfect for me as my skin could not tolerate Liquid Gold without a reaction or irritation bumps (luckily I had a sample to try).

How I apply this: Soak a cotton round and sweep on cleansed dry face, being careful not to rub. 2-3 times a week. I have no idea if it is ok to apply anything after this, but I have had great results with this alone on my skin overnight. My skin does not feel uncomfortable or dry, but like I have applied a thin layer of mask. This makes my skin glow in the morning, dark marks from breakouts are fading quicker after I started using this and dry patches have now been cleared  – yay! *Important: Use a high SPF containing product in the daytime, I use a Neutrogena Sheer touch SPF70 under makeup or Avene SPF30 which I reapply after 2-3 hours if I am out all day.

The bottle design is perfect, the bottle can be squeezed to dispense product on to a cotton round with ease without spilling or over dispensing. The feel of the liquid is slightly slippery, so it is very easy to apply smoothly.

Here is the product description from boots.com:

“Introducing Revitalift Laser Renew Anti-Wrinkle + Anti-Dark Spot skincare regime. Helps stimulate skin surface cell renewal leaving your skin’s past behind. With Glycolic Acid, a key ingredient used by dermatologists for peeling treatments. Proven Effectiveness. Wrinkles appear reduced. Reduces the look of dark spots and helps prevent new ones from forming. Clarifies, skin tone appears to look brighter.”

L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Extraordinary Oil 30ml & Oil-Cream 50ml

L’Oréal Age perfect Extraordinary Oil & Oil-cream

L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Extraordinary Oil 30ml, £19.99

Extraordinary oil is a pleasure to apply, it has a distinct spa massage oil scent, feels quite luxurious for the price and is comparable to higher end face oils I have tried in the past.

How I apply this: taking a few drops in the palm of my hand, warm through my hands and then press the oil onto the face, being careful not to rub.

If I want to do a face massage after a relaxing bath I will take 5-6 drops, press first onto my face and gently massage – I like doing this when I feel tension in my face – as I have a awful habit of frowning when I am working on my computer.

I have replaced my Josie Maran argan oil and Trilogy oil with this for 2 weeks now and am very happy with the results this oil has provided. My skin is much more hydrated, looks less dull and I have found that my base makeup is applying better too. Another bonus for me is that I can use this during the day time as it is much lighter in texture than the face oils I have used before.

There is one negative… the bottle is clear and so I have been keeping it in a dark area on my vanity to keep it from spoiling. I will continue to purchase the Trilogy oil as I like the renewing effects it gives but most likely stop buying the Josie Maran oil as I feel Extraordinary oil does the same job but at a lower price point.

I have been following Extraordinary oil with this oil-cream and have found it to be very rich and, again, with quite a luxurious, albeit stronger, spa massage oil scent. Very little goes a long way as there is a lot of slip to the texture of Extraordinary oil-cream, and after using this for 1 week I must say that it is too rich for my skin and left my face feeling like a oil-slick. I also have had a few breakouts, being breakout prone this is something I experience with many products and does not mean this would cause breakouts in everyone, but if you are prone to breakouts I would say it may be best to try the face oil alone first.

Using the oil on its own I have found this to be enough moisture for my PM skincare routine. My mum has already expressed that she would like to give this line a try, so I will be passing the cream on to her to try hoping she will have better results.
