L'Oreal Paris Dermo-Expertise Advanced RevitaLift Deep-Set Wrinkle Repair Intensive Restoring Treatment SPF 15 Day Lotion... Boy, is that a long title for a product or what? These companies should be set quotas for how long they are allowed to title their products, because WOW!

When I first opened up my sample, I did not like its fragrance at all. It smelled like chemicals and very strong perfume. I gave it a shot anyway. The day lotion was an attractive light whitish-pink color. As I was applying the lotion on my face, neck, arms and hands, I must have gotten used to the scent because it was not as abrasive. Hours later, as I am typing this, I just sniffed my arm and I still smell perfumed. The scent is now at a pleasant subtle level.

This lotion seems to be fairly water-resistant. The SPFs in it are ensulizole and octinozate. They are chemical blocks, which unlike physical blocks, work to protect the skin from the sun's rays within the skin itself. Physical blocks sit on the skin and if they are washed off, their efficacy is down to nil. On the sample I have, it doesn't say it is water-resistant, nor does it say it is water-resistant on L'Oreal's website.

Revitalift is not oil-free. It does have sunflower seed oil in it, but I found sunflower seed oil had low clogging potential on the non-comedogenic chart I looked at. That being said, I really liked Revitalift's consistency. It left my skin deliciously matte and soft at the same time.
