We know that the savvy beauty consumers in Asia are hard to please. Exposed to products from both Asian and Western brands, Asian women are demanding about the efficacy and ingredients of their beauty products.

This is why we were rather impressed to hear that the new L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Micronized Centella Essence Water became a sensation around Asia.

It was recently a trending topic on Weibo (the biggest Twitter-like service in China), and popular Taiwanese beauty talk show, Lady First (女人我最大) also featured this new product as an anti-ageing holy grail of one of the skincare experts.

Now that it is finally available in Singapore, it is definitely a product that Daily Vanity would like to try, and find out if it lives up to the hype.

What does the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Centella Micro-Essence Water do?

This micro-essence deeply repairs and instantly hydrates for firmer, crystal clear skin. Used after cleansing and toning, it contains 92% Pure Centella Essence, which is the trendiest ingredient in skincare, known for its powerful healing properties. It works to repair skin and maintain collagen production.

This micro-essence water has five times smaller micro droplets than regular essences to deeply penetrate into the skin for instant hydration.

For best results, pair it with the Revitalift Day Cream with SPF23 or Revitalift Night Cream, if you’d like to achieve firmer, youthful-looking skin.

L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Micro-Essence Water review: The results are in

The L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Centella Micro-Essence Water has a consistency that’s just slightly thicker than water and feels extremely refreshing on skin. But what impresses me most is the speed the product gets absorbed, which demonstrates to me how small the molecules of the product must be.

You can watch how fast the product gets absorbed for yourself:

While most skincare products take a while before you can notice their benefits, the Revitalift Centella Micro-Essence Water delivers hydration instantly to my skin. My skin feels plumper and more moisturised, and looks fresher right after application.

I have used the micro-essence water for approximately two weeks now and notice that my skin feels firmer and more lifted.

At the same time, I also experienced the skin-repairing effects of its formula. It usually takes me at least two weeks for a pimple to heal on my skin, but I notice that a recent zit healed faster than before and was almost unnoticeable within a few days.

Since the Revitalift Centella Micro-Essence Water was the only new product I’ve used recently, I’m convinced that it accelerated my skin’s ability to repair itself.

You can hear me talk about my experience with the product, which we’ve featured in our Picks of the Month video:

Overall, I like how the product feels on my skin and am happy that I was able to see its benefits within two weeks of use. It definitely lives up to the hype we’ve been hearing!

The new L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Micro-Essence Water is available at all leading retailers like Watsons, Guardian, major super/ hyper markets and selected department stores, and retail at SGD29.90. But check it out within January and February, because we heard that there will be introductory offers in stores!

If you’re an avid online shopper, you can also find it on Lazada.
