You, the Mamamia audience, asked if anti-ageing creams really work.
And I’m happy to report that we now have a resounding answer to that question. But before we get to the results, here’s a bit of background on the trial.
We sent our Opinionators (a select group of Mamamia readers) L’Oreal Paris’ Revitalift Day Cream to trial over 14 days. We asked them to apply the product once a day and to track their progress against the wrinkle reader. That was it — aside from sitting back and waiting for the magic to happen.
L’Oreal’s own trial found that 94 per cent of women noticed a visible reduction in their wrinkles and over 80 per cent noticed a difference in the product against the wrinkle reader. Would our trial yield the same results? Would even the most sceptical Mamamia opinionators notice a difference in their skin’s texture? Is L’Oreal shaking in their boots?
Well, no. The powers that be at L’Oreal need not be sweating bullets. Out of the many women who trialed Revitalift Day Cream, only one found it didn’t suit her skin type. And even she was impressed with how hydrated her skin became after using Revitalift.
But by far the biggest results came from readers who initially measured a four on the wrinkle reader. After just two weeks, many reported moving down two places. These readers, as you would expect, were thrilled with the results — particularly those in their early forties.
“After using this product for 14 days, I believe I’ve seen a change. My skin feels more supple and it felt fantastic on application,” writes Alida. “I’m in my early 40’s and was probably a rating 3 on the ruler scale. After the 14 day trial, I think I’m now a 2.”
“I’m in my early 40’s and I feel my skin looks better. I was a rating 4 on the scale before I started and now feel I am a 2,” Rachel said.
