We may not be in the age-reversing skincare market juuuuust yet, but anti-aging? Preventative maintenance? Oh, hell yes! Anything to avoid the whole Botox/Juvederm/Restylane/facelift cycle, right, ladies? When L'Oreal sent us samples of their new L'Oreal Skin Expertise Youth Code Clinical Strength Starter System ($30, includes eye cream, SPF 30 day lotion, and day/night cream) and L'Oreal Skin Expertise Youth Code Youth Regenerating Skincare Serum Intense Daily Treatment ($22), we were initially skeptical until we realized it was meant for women of all ages. It uses high concentrations of proven anti-aging ingredients and their exclusive GenActiv Technology to target wrinkle-fighting genes, making them work harder under stress to reduce the appearance of saggy, wrinkled skin. Of course, if you don't have wrinkles yet, it also helps to prevent them (an ounce of prevention, after all...). After using the complete system for a few weeks, we found our skin looked and felt brighter, tighter, and better moisturized. Nothing is a miracle worker, of course, but damned if this stuff doesn't come close, and the SPF30 in the day lotion helps to prevent future skin damage.
