Topic: L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence Product Review
Hi there!! Here I am with another product review. I have been using L’Oreal Paris Crystal Micro-essence for three months, and I think it is a good time to review it. So, I got my hands on this product, thanks to my acne-prone combination skin, which behaves abnormally due to the change in weather and the stress of moving to another city. I always wanted to include an essence in my skincare routine that was light and not too heavy on my pocket. I was quite skeptical when I saw this product because it contains alcohol as the third ingredient. Many brands have used alcohol in skin care for better absorption of the product so that it does not stick to the skin. There are different types of alcohol that are suitable for different skin types. L’Oréal did not mention the type used in this product.
Different types of alcohol for different skin types.
But I decided to try it anyway because it contains salicylic acid, a beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), and my skin needed it then. It also contains Centella Asiatica, which has soothing properties for irritated skin.
What does the product say?
The skin is durably hydrated, smoother, and more radiant.
Salicylic Acid: Salicylic acid works to treat acne by unclogging clogged pores. It does this by breaking the bonds between dead skin cells so they can be released more easily from pores and by breaking down oils such as sebum. Salicylic acid also decreases the sebum production of the skin, which reduces breakouts.

The product is available in sizes 22 ml, 65 ml, and 130 ml.
I LOVE it when brands are sensitive enough to trial size the product for the consumer to try first.
I decided to buy the smaller one first to see how my skin reacts.
How to use it?
After cleansing and toning the face, pour 3-4 drops into the palm of your hand and pat gently on the face.
First, let me comment on the packaging. It comes in a sturdy, clear glass bottle that lets you know how much product is left. Plus, you can easily control the amount of product for your skincare routine. I love when you don’t have to dip your fingers in the product and can control the drips as it’s very hygienic and eliminates waste.
The product is a clear water-like liquid that has a pleasant smell. My skin doesn’t react to perfume like that; I have nothing to say about that. I use this essence daily, morning and night, and follow it up with my serum and moisturizer. When I wear it during the day, I always apply sunscreen. My skin reacted very well to this product, but some people may be irritated due to the high alcohol content. It’s not heavy on my skin, it helps control oil in my T-zone, and my skin feels noticeably fresher. It has never irritated my skin or made it dry as I have oilier combination skin. Since I started using this product, I have noticed fewer breakouts, and it does not feel sticky after application. Beauties with dry and sensitive skin should do a patch test and buy the smaller version first, as we don’t know what kind of alcohol it contains or whether it will suit your skin.

Is Loreal Crystal Micro Essence A Toner?
When I read the international blogs, they said that the texture of this essence is thicker than water and more like a serum. BUT, the one available in India is quite watery, like a toner.
Can I Use Crystal Micro Essence As A Moisturiser?
It might work as a moisturizer for normal/oily skin, but you should follow up with a broad-spectrum sunscreen. This essence is quite watery, so it is unsuitable as a standalone moisturizer for dry/mature skin.

Is LOreal crystal micro essence harmful to skin?
