L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfect 30+ Cream SPF 21 PA+++: The Good, The Bad & the Ugly

If you ever had a close look at the skincare segment, you will notice that most of the skincare products can be categorized into products for different skin types, but not for different ages. If you  really had to categorize the skin care segment, then you could probably divide them into two sections - 'anti-ageing' and anything 'other than anti-ageing'. Most of us, who are in our 20s and early 30s would use the ‘other than anti-ageing’ products, while our moms would use the ‘anti-ageing’. Yep! There isn't any product or range that can be categorized for each age group. Well, that is where L'Oreal Paris comes in. 

L'Oreal recently launched their age specific skin care range called L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfect that has skin care products that have been specifically formulated for each age group. The company has formulated skin care moisturizing creams, face washes a that are for specific age groups. The entire range is divided into three categories - 20+, 30+ and 40+. Yep, finally a range where you know that this product is solely meant for you! L'Oreal had sent across the product to me at the beginning of February and I have been using the 30+ cream since then (I turned 30 last year :P). Read on to see how the cream fared.

The L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfect 30+ range comprises a moisturizing cream and a face cleanser. Both the products have Pro Collagen, which is perfect for fighting those fine lines.This particular range targets early signs of ageing, which is the appearance of fine lines around our eyes, mouth and neck, slight pigmentation and dark spots. It also helps to whiten and remove signs of fatigue.

When it comes to packaging, L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfect 30+ Cream comes in a white round glass container with a screw top. Although, the container is made out of glass, the container is quite sturdy and will definitely not break if you drop it from your hands from a slight height. The screw top seems to be air-tight and leak proof.


  • Price: Rs. 99 on wards
  • Shelf Life: 36 months
  • Weight: 50 gms
  • L'Oreal claims: “L'Oreal Paris Age 30+ Skin Perfect Range comprises a moisturizing cream along with cleansing foam. Both contain pro collagen which is perfect for fighting those fine lines that begin to appear in your thirties, giving you younger, glowing skin.”

The consistency of the cream is creamy with a slight gel texture. While applying, the cream goes on smoothly and gets absorbed quite quickly, leaving the skin soft, supple and smooth and without any traces of oil. I liked how my skin felt soft and supple after applying the cream. It also acted like a perfect base for applying cosmetics!

The Good:
  • While, I am not sure if the cream whitens or not, but it definitely brightens your face and removes dullness.
  • Adds a subtle glow to the face.
  • Improves skin texture. I noticed that my facial skin was soft and smooth after using the product for two weeks.
  • I don't have any fine lines on my face as yet, so not sure if it actually works to reduce lines or not.
  • Has SPF!
  • Sturdy packaging. Can be carried around easily in your bag or luggage.
  • The entire range is priced from Rs. 99 on wards! 
The Bad:
  • Since, the cream has SPF, it left a slight whitish cast on me. However, I noticed that if I massaged it properly, the white cast doesn't happen.
  • I find the perfume of the cream to be a little strong. However, this might be because of my extra-sensitive nose. I am sure others may not face this issue.
The Ugly:
  • No ugly in the product.
My rating: thumbs upthumbs upthumbs upthumbs up/5

All in all, I think this is a good product to use as it effectively improves the quality of the skin and the skin tone. Another factor that I loved about the range was that there a dedicated product for each age group, thereby, ensuring that it is a tailored made solution for all lovely beauties out there.

  7. I have tried the 20s variant and it didn't work for my dry skin, I am glad you are enjoying this one. :)

  8. Ah this is a nice idea, it's hard to know when to start with the anti-aging stuff as you get older!

  9. I think I need to try this - I'm definitely in the right age range!! xxx Thou Shalt Not Covet

  10. i love how they have this targeted to different age ranges!

  11. I've seen this advertised and it looks interesting. xx

  12. I quite like the sound of this range, especially because it looks as though thought has gone into what people of different age groups need x

  13. I have seen this range on a few blogs now and it really seems as though L'Oreal have upped their game because not a bad word has been written about any of them!

  14. It looks darn cheap... hope it is really good..


  15. It is great that they've designed the creams for different ages, thats quite unique until you go to really high end brands like Lauder who have products that are targeted for different ages. Although I'm only in my twenties, I still want all of the anti ageing goodness I can get!

  16. Well I have actually used this but it did not work out that well for me :( Maybe because I have dry skin and most light creams do nothing for me
