Anti-ageing is the buzz word these days and in my post here I had revealed to you the recently launched Skin Perfect Range from L'Oréal Paris for 3 age groups - 20s, 30s and 40s addressing skin care needs specific to those ages. Now since I am in my 30's, I used the 30+ cream and here is my verdict on what I thought about the range.
I have dry skin and if not moisturised everyday dry skin ages earlier. So for me it was imperative that the cream I used had to have an effect lasting through the day which was the first most quality that this cream won on. Also since I step out quite frequently, this cream was perfect as it had SPF 21. Infact anybody who steps out for 5 minutes in a day, needs to protect themselves from the UVA and UVB rays. These are the first thoughts on what would make me consider a cream.
Here are my first impressions on the packaging. The cream comes in a sturdy glass pot bottle and is not very heavy. Once you open the pretty golden cover which closes quite tight, you see a spill proof lid with an easy to pick up finger-grip which is very essential for creams to avoid leakage. The bottle has the details mentioned very clearly on it and the paper box packaging mentions all details that you need to know on every main ingredient before you make the buying decision.
The cream looked a little heavy when I first opened the lid, but on touching it realised it was light and fluffy and not at all heavy. The cream is off white in colour and has a lovely smell to it. The skin absorbs the cream instantly and doesn't leave any film but that may be because I just take a pea size amount and spot it into 5 points on my face and rub it in and also because I have dry skin. I did have a few tiny breakouts on my forehead which disappeared in 2 to 3 days but then once in a while I do get some breakouts, so I don't know if it was because of the cream.
I have been using the 30+ Skin Perfect range for over 2 weeks now and have noticed a certain radiance to my face as well brightening of my skin. This must be the effect of the Vitamin 3X complex that this cream contains that acts on melanin responsible for dullness and darkness and Vitamin E which possesses anti-oxidant properties. Also my skin feels quite smooth which is the effect of the pro-collagen. I can apply make-up over it without the fear of my skin turning greasy which is a very important consideration for me while buying a skin cream. I leave it for 5 minutes before applying any make-up. Priced at INR 425, it is definitely one of the most reasonable creams in the market.
A combination of the above satisfying features is definitely why I will consider buying this product.
