In some ways, I try not to worry about my looks too much. It seems like too much trouble to be what you’d call a “Fancy” girl. A good moisturizer, a good foundation, some mascara and a hint of lip gloss, that’s my morning routine.
A year ago, I embraced my truthful self and quit coloring my hair. At the same time, I made the decision to go back to school and finish my college degree, and took a job at a local startup where the average age of the employees is 25.
I guess what I’m trying to say is this Boomer feels young. Young enough to engage, keep up with, and sometimes beat my GenX friends at their own game! But age does creep, and those endless California summers of my youth, along with today’s endless high plains winters are starting to take their toll.
I’ve used Oil of Olay, just the regular pink liquid, all of my life. Mostly because I was afraid to experiment with any of the more expensive systems. But I’ve always wanted to try a complete anti-aging skin care regimen, where all the products are made to work together and complement each other. Admittedly, feeling young at 56 is one thing, but it definitely takes more work to look that way than it did when I was in my twenties. And that’s where L’Oreal’s Age Perfect Cell Renewal Skin Creams come in.
I was offered the opportunity to try L’Oreal’s complete regimen, using all three products: the Age Perfect Cell Renewal Golden Serum, Age Perfect Cell Renewal Day Cream, and Age Perfect Cell Renewal Night Cream. The literature promises to give my skin a fresh start, and to accelerate skin cell renewal by enhancing exfoliation so the surface cells are revealed faster. This, L’Oreal claims, will result in “refreshed, re-plumped, and visibly renewed skin” — after only one month!
OK, I’m in!
I’m following the recommended regimen, which is to apply the Cell Renewal Golden Serum followed by the Cell Renewal Day Cream, then at night, more Golden Serum, followed by the Cell Renewal Night Cream.
I have to say that if packaging is any indicator, this is what I imagine royalty uses! When it arrived, I could hardly wait to open it up and experience it!
The Golden Serum is light and creamy, with a touch of iridescent golden color. One pump dispenses enough of this magic potion to glide completely over your freshly cleansed face. The Day Cream comes in a pot which makes the dense balm easy to access. A light touch with one or two fingers is sufficient to cover my whole face, with enough left over to massage into the backs of my hands. The Night Cream, in it’s matching pot, is slightly more dense, but just as easy to apply. In the two weeks I have been using these, I can say that I love the appearance of the packaging and of the product itself, the light scent, and how little you actually have to use.
If there are any drawbacks, it would have to be the SPF 15 that is included in the Day Cream. If there is one place I would like to see plumper skin, and renewed cells, it’s around my eyes, but SPF in, or even around my eyes causes them to water. When my eyes water, I rub them, plus, it probably washes away the product. This is counterproductive to plumper and renewed skin! I’ve started using the Night Cream in place of the Day Cream since it doesn’t contain the SPF. I would suggest that in the future, L’Oreal offer an SPF free version of the Day Cream as well.
So far, having only used them for a couple of weeks, I am pleased overall with the products and the regimen. I’ll continue with my experiment and check in again in a month to let you know how it’s going.
Maybe its not so much trouble after all to be a “Fancy” girl!Thanks for visiting!
