Hey everybody today I bring to you the first half of the L'Oreal Skin Perfection review. I picked this serum up back in January with my Boots Advantage points along with the correlating moisturiser and thought I'd do two separate reviews on each, starting with the serum.

'Refines skin texture, tightens pores, evens and brightens skin tone'
'LR 2412 + Perline-P'
This particular serum is targeted at women aged in their 20's and 30's, when our skin is still young but not as perfect and elastic as it was in our teens. Its meant to help relieve the signs of stress, fatigue and an unbalanced lifestyle. (I contest to all of these things!)
The serum comes in a glass bottle with a pink obre glass effect and a hot pink plastic pump dispenser and plastic cap. It only has a very faint scent that is barely there, its a subtle perfumey scent. The serum itself is white in colour with a faint iridescent shimmer. It has quite a slippery texture and smooths in to the skin leaving behind a nice cooling effect. Since I've been using this, day and night, I have to say I have actually seen results and I'm pleasantly surprised. I'm always dubious about anything with big claims. The overall look and quality of my skin has improved. Although pores do not tighten I've found they look less noticeable and I'm some who has very large pores.
Although this has work really rather well for me I'm unsure if I would repurchase another one, as this is 100% a chemical cocktail. I bought this right after I quit no-poo and was having a bit of a crisis (am I the only one like that?), I would like to get back on track with my natural skincare but that will have to wait till I've used this all up, along with the moisturiser.
But in a nutshell I have enjoyed using it and I'm glad that I can give it a positive review! Hope you have found this helpful!
