Editor's Pick: 5 Affordable Anti-Aging Skin Care Products
L’Oreal Paris RevitaLift collection is easily one of the most comprehensive anti-aging skin-care ranges available at local drugstores. There are eye creams, overnight masks, serums, and even cleansers all designed for one common goal: helping you achieve healthy, younger-looking skin. Naturally the Skincare.com team thought it was time to put these affordable anti-aging products to the test. We were sent complimentary product samples from L’Oreal’s RevitaLift line to review—find out what we thought of the five RevitaLift products we reviewed below!
L’Oreal RevitaLift Triple Power Deep-Acting Moisturizer Review
Who It’s For: Mature skin types looking to diminish the appearance of wrinkles for younger, firmer, and lifted looking skin.
With 4.5 stars over its 1,032 customizer reviews* on the L’Oreal Paris website, L’Oreal RevitaLift Triple Power Deep-Acting Moisturizer is clearly a crowd pleaser. Formulated with Pro-Xylane—a patented wrinkle-fighting ingredient—and hyaluronic acid, this moisturizer aims to address three dimensions that visibly age skin: repairs wrinkles, re-firms contours, and re-densifies skin. With continued use over time skin texture can appear smoother and elasticity should be increased for skin that can look younger, firmer, and lifted.
What did we think? We loved the texture of this luxurious cream—and the price point! Under $30 for an anti-aging cream is a win in our book. We did notice a smoother skin texture after continued use and felt that our skin did look younger as well.
L’Oreal RevitaLift Volume Filler Eye Treatment Review
Who It’s For: Anyone looking to replenish under-eye hollows, reduce sunken shadows, and firm their eye contour.
As we get older, our skin begins to lose both volume and its natural levels of hyaluronic acid decline—more on this naturally-occurring hydration powerhouse here. One of the first signs of this volume loss occurs under the delicate area of skin surrounding our eyes. Skin here becomes thinner and loses its fullness and youthful-looking qualities. Sunken shadows start to appear and dark circles become much more visible and pronounced. Inspired by research on skin volume biology Revitalift Volume Filler Eye Treatment works to visibly re-volumize and replenish the eye area with more natural-looking fullness. It’s formulated with a targeted dose of deeply replenishing hyaluronic acid.
When we reviewed L’Oreal Revitalift Volume Filler we felt that after one use our eye contour felt more hydrated and the skin around our eyes was more firm in appearance. After a few weeks, the sunken-in look of our under-eye area appeared volumized and our eye contour looked more luminous and felt smoother. What’s more? Puffiness and under-eye bags—thanks so much sleepless nights!—were reduced in appearance as well! The non-greasy eye cream has a refreshing gel-cream texture that melts onto the skin and leaves no sticky residue behind. We used it morning and night to truly get the most out of the eye treatment.

L’Oreal Revitalift Triple Power Review
Who It’s For: Mature skin types hoping to visibly reduce wrinkles, smooth out fine lines, and fade the appearance of spots and discoloration.
If you are looking for a day lotion moisturizer that’s formulated with broad-spectrum SPF, look no further. Formulated with the anti-aging action of Pro-Xylane, dark spot-reducing Bright Active XP3, and broad-spectrum protection against the sun’s harmful and skin aging UVA and UVB rays, this lightweight lotion can help to transform the look of your skin. Use this as a final step in our daytime skin care routine after cleansing, serum, and eye cream.
We loved how lightweight and non-greasy the lotion was and how it made our skin feel silky soft and look more radiant. After two weeks of use our skin tone appeared more radiant and even and any wrinkling we had begun to see was noticeably reduced in appearance. Since UV rays are a leading cause of the two most visible signs of skin again—wrinkles and dark spots—using a product formulated with SPF to protect against further damage and also reduce the appearance of current damage is a win-win in our book!

L’Oreal Revitalift Volume Filler Night Cream Review
Who It’s For: Mature skin types who experience dryness and want skin to appear less wrinkled and more full.
With age and that decline of naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid that we spoke about before, skin can lose its fullness, allowing vertical wrinkles to becoming more prominent. At nighttime while you sleep, the pressure you place between your skin and the pillow can deepen the lines and mark your skin, leaving you with tell-tale “sleep lines” the following morning. As skin loses its bounce-back rate with age, these lines become more permanent. With L’Oreal Revitalift Volume Filler Night Cream, over time skin cushion is improved so the appearance of sleep lines is reduced. Skin can look firm, plump, and feel fresh, soft, and supple.
We loved how this deeply-hydrating and refreshing gel-cream melts right onto skin and how weightless it feels—necessary in a night cream since no one wants to get greasy residue all over their pillows. Upon waking our skin appeared dewy and glowing.
L’Oreal Revitalift Triple Power Concentrated Serum Review
Who It’s For: Mature skin types who want to reduce the look of wrinkles, refirm skin contours, and resurface the appearance of their complexion.
No anti-aging skin care routine is complete without a serum and if reducing the signs of skin aging is the goal, then L’Oreal Revitalift Triple Power Concentrated Serum may be for you. Formulated with Pro-Xylane, hyaluronic acid, and micro-exfoliating lipo-hydroxy acid (LHA), this serum not only helps to visibly smooth wrinkles it also helps to refine the skin texture and hydrate skin.
We loved how silky this anti-aging serum felt on our skin and how affordable it is. Serum can often be the most expensive part of your skin care routine, but at under $30 with Revitalift you can have your serum—and your cleansers and cream, too! The serum got major brownie points with us because of the LHA in the formula. We love a good chemical exfoliator in our skin care products and this one delivers—our skin tone and texture appeared much more even and smooth with continued use over time!
