I am LOVING the world of L’Oreal right now! They are stepping up their drugstore skincare game and making some pretty AWESOME and AFFORDABLE skincare that beats a lot of high end skincare I’ve tried. Seriously you guys-this is a game changer for me.
I’ll admit it-I’m a huge skincare snob. Well, not huge, but semi-huge. 🙂 I am of the mindset that great, quality, effective skincare starts in about the $60 range. I haven’t quite graduated to the insanely priced high end skincare that’s out there, but I have used some expensive cult products like La Mer and SK-II, but nothing that’s cost over $150. That’s my limit. I have to put a kid through college for cripes sake, and as you can tell by my chubby cheeks-I likes to eat. 🙂

L’Oreal Paris is changing my whole skincare/money/efficacy mindset with their new products:

L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Texture Perfector products are supposed to give you smoother, more even skin in as little as one week. It perfects your skin by enhancing your natural regeneration process by exfoliating dead skin cells, and it improves elasticity too. Sign me up baby!! Although, this is a skincare line targeted at those of you that are experiencing the first signs of ageing-you know-fine lines, uneven skin tone and texture-I think I’ve passed that milestone about 20 years ago HAHAHA. Actually, I should be crying after writing that, but strangely enough I’m ok with it! I don’t actually have many deep wrinkles at my age (STAY OUT OF THE SUN GUYS), so I feel I can still use this stuff. But being the awesome mama that I am, I did a mommy sacrifice and passed the set along to Marky, so let’s see what she has to say after 1 week of using the set!

L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Texture Perfector Serum Concentrate($29.99 CDN)-really light, absorbs quickly, feels nice and refreshing and smells good.

L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Texture Perfector Day/Night Cream($29.99 CDN)– isn’t greasy and actually leaves a matte finish which I like, smells good, and no breakouts!

I think this is a great skincare set for anyone starting to notice the first signs of aging like fine lines and uneven skin tone. What’s important for Marky and I’m sure most young women out there, is skincare that doesn’t cause breakouts, and so far so good. What she has noticed is smoother skin and brighter skin, so that’s something! It’s actually working! What I love about the L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Texture Perfector line is that there’s a serum. Serums are something that I think everyone should use, and I feel not enough young people use them. If you don’t use a serum, then here’s WHY you should be: they are concentrated formulas that are full of active ingredients like vitamins and antioxidants so they are actually MORE effective than just a moisturizer. They are usually designed for really specific problems you want to address like acne, wrinkles, pigmentation, and therefore you’re more likely to see results if you use one. Why? They’re more readily absorbed into your skin, and can penetrate deeper into the epidermis. The moisturizer that usually accompanies a serum is the icing on the cake, and locks in the benefits of a serum. So the L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Texture Perfector Line has got it right! It’s a great first anti-ageing skincare duo that will get you going in the right direction, and it’s affordable.

You can find L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Texture Perfector Serum and Day/Night Cream at most drugstores and retailers right now. If anything, at least pick up the serum! Your epidermis will thank you! And you can thank me by sending BLUSH to P.O. BOX BLUSH FIENDS, Edmonton, AB, Canada. I should change my REAL address to that one, hey? 

Whaddaya think? isn’t L’Oreal Paris doing something amazing with their skincare? And do you use a serum? Please tell me you do….
