Up for review today are a couple of L’Oreal products my mom has been trying out. Let me just jump right in and say she fell in love with L’Oreal’s Extra Volume Collagen Mascara ($7.95). Mom wasn’t necessarily blessed with those extra-fluffy movie-star eyelashes (needless to say, she didn’t pass them down to me, either!), so she’s always looking for as much help as she can get to “lift” her eyes open. And for a drugstore find, this one’s excellent.
The brush is actually 50-percent bigger than the classic voluminizing mascara from L’Oreal, so you can imagine the high impact. High drama, baby. The collagen clings to lashes as they expand for 12 times more impact. Mascara is one of the most important beauty tools out there, in my opinion, and this one truly works. If you’re pressed for time, just apply some of this magic stuff and you instantly look fresh.
As for the Revitalift Deep-Set Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream ($19.99), it’s a duo of Pro-Retinol A and a fiber restoring complex of Pro-Lastyl and Vitoptine. What, you say?? In other words, these are anti-aging ingredients that also firm and tone. Easy as that. There’s one for AM and one for PM, and they’re not bad for those pesky wrinkles around the eye (or you could stop party-hopping til midnight, ahem?). How to use?
Just apply gently to the eye area every morning and night after washing your face, and perhaps follow-up with the Revitalift day/night cream if you have the extra cash and time.
