I Swapped My Night Cream With the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Pressed Night Cream with Retinol and My Skin Has Never Looked Glowier
Waking up with an even skin tone and texture has been a skincare goal of mine for a long time. I have a good amount of discoloration, plus acne scars and the beginning of fine lines, so a retinol is a must-have in my nightly routine. Although effective, retinol can be drying on my skin, so I like to look for formulas that also have soothing ingredients to help keep my complexion moisturized. When L’Oréal Paris gifted me the new Pressed Retinol Night Moisturizer to review, I was stoked to give it a go because it’s specifically designed to visibly reduce wrinkles and deeply moisturize.
After cleansing my face at night, I pump out one dose of the night moisturizer (the pressed packaging makes this easy!) and apply it all over my face. The first thing I love about this night moisturizer is how lightweight it feels on the skin. It’s infused with niacinamide, an ingredient which is known to improve moisture retention [NCBI], and my skin felt hydrated and refreshed after my first application. The other thing I love about this formula is that it doesn’t feel greasy or leave behind a residue — instead, it sinks right into my skin and leaves it feeling plump and soft. Since using this product, my skin appears glowy, even and softer in the morning. After using this for a few nights, I noticed that my skin looks visibly healthier-looking and my fine lines appear less noticeable, too.
