L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro Essence Review – This product from L’Oreal has been praised by many customers for being an affordable essence that actually shows results. Does it fulfil its tall claims in revealing crystal clear skin in just 7 days? Is this suitable for all skin types? Is it worth the money spend?
Let us check it out based on the facts available and my experience.
Powered with salicylic acid, this ultra-lightweight watery facial essence goes up to ten skin layers deep to minimize pores, brighten and smoothen skin, and refine skin texture.
Reveal crystal clear skin in just 7 Days
Powered by micronized technology, Revitalift Crystal Micro-essence penetrates deeply up to 10 skin layers.
Each skin refining droplet is also powered by skin brightening actives (Hepes and Salicylic Acid) and Centella Asiatica
Over time, the skin’s original glow gradually fades away, leaving dull, rough skin with more visible fine lines and wrinkles.
It contains salicylic acid derivatives that help to control excess oil sebum and minimize pores, all the while gently exfoliating dead skin cells to reveals brighter, more refined skin with minimized pores.

L’oreal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro Essence Side Effects
Alcohol present in this essence may cause itching and dryness for dry skin/Sensitive skin.
Salicylic acid can cause irritations on sensitive skin, although my sensitive skin was totally fine with it.
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 is more like a serum. BUT, the one available here in India is pretty watery like a toner.
Can I Use Crystal Micro Essence As A Moisturiser?
It could work as a moisturiser for normal/oily skin but you need to follow up with a broad spectrum sunscreen.
This essence is pretty watery so it is not suitable as a stand alone moisturiser for dry/mature skin.
Difference Between ‘Revitalift Crystal Micro Essence’ And ‘Revitalift Micro Essence’
There are three main differences based on their,
BENEFITS – Revitalift Crystal micro essence gives smooth, brighter and radiant skin While Revitalift micro essence focuses mainly on improving skin elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles.
TEXTURE – The crystal version has a lighter consistency while the revitalift micro essence has a richer texture.
PENETRATION ABILITY – The crystal revitalift essence can penetrate up to 10 layers of skin as the molecules are super tiny.
This essence is transparent just like all the other serum/essence in the market. It is quite watery so it has a runny consistency.
The dispenser is not one of my favourites as i am used to the pump type bottles and droppers.
Loreal crystal micro essence does get absorbed easily and is non sticky. My hands do feel sticky but i did not feel the stickiness on my face.
The fragrance is really mild and pleasant.
The scent does not linger and fades away within minutes.
The essence feels gentle on my skin.
It does smoothen out the bumps/irritated skin on my face and makes it appear calm. Rather than brightening my face, this essence made my skin visibly smoother.
Salicylic acid is especially beneficial to those with oily, acne prone skin.
It does help remove the dead skin cells(Chemical exfoliation), promote healing and prevents pimples.
Adenosine helps keep your skin look young and youthful by preventing the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
Coming to its effects, this essence does take its own sweet time to show results. You have to wait for about 25 days to see visible changes in skin texture and tone. At least that was the case for me. BUT, it certainly works.
This essence did not have any effect on skin pigmentation and it does not claim to reduce pigmentation.
Have DRY SKIN?
Loreal Essence certainly does not cause breakouts or irritations BUT, as it contains alcohol and salicylic acid, it may cause itching on dry skin.
Use a hydrating toner before applying the serum.
Follow up with a good moisturiser and use sunscreen religiously.
Will It Suit Sensitive Skin?
This serum contains fragrance so do a patch test before applying it on your face.
- Comes in three sizes
- Light weight
- Gets absorbed easily
- Penetrates deeper into the skin
- Improves skin texture and tone in 30-45 days

For dry/sensitive skin, Do a patch test first- Look out for symptoms like itching and redness.
Do I Recommend L’Oréal crystal Micro Essence?
Yes, but only for oily skin.
I still prefer the Klairs Toner over this though.
