How Enxhi Borova Makes Her Naturally Dry Skin Look Glowy and Moisturized

Skin-perfecting hyaluronic acid serum. Enxhi Borova discovers a product that leaves her skin glowing and feeling moisturized.

Enxhi Borova’s Challenge: “I want my skin to look radiant and feel moisturized and firm.”

Beauty Solution: L’Oréal Paris Revitalift 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Her Beauty Diary: Growing up, Enxhi Borova was a dancer. Her relationship with beauty began backstage, where she’d see “other girls using lipsticks and fake lashes and all these extravagant products.” Now, she tries to keep things a little simpler. “If I’m having a good skin day, I barely wear any makeup at all—just mascara and lipgloss,” she says. Borova says her skin is naturally dry, which means it can appear dull.

“When my skin is hydrated, I feel like it has a radiance to it, which I love. After I use the serum, it feels so soft and smooth.” She has used other serums, but when she tried L’Oréal Paris Revitalift 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid Serum, she noticed results immediately. “Now, I wash my face with a cleanser, apply the serum and a moisturizer and I’m ready to go.”

“This serum evens and smooths out my complexion, but it doesn’t feel like I have anything on my skin.”

Pro tip: “I like adding skincare products, like serums, into my makeup routine,” says Jodi Urichuk, L’Oréal Paris Canadian makeup artist and expert. “For example, I mix the serum into my foundation. If my skin looks good, everything else follows suit.”

L’Oréal Paris Revitalift 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid Serum

This fragrance-free serum contains a blend of micro hyaluronic acid, which penetrates deeply into the skin’s surface layer to plump out wrinkles, and macro hyaluronic acid, which works on the skin’s surface to create a hydrating layer for an instant effect. The result: Skin looks plumper and feels softer in just one day.

Use the serum in two easy steps:

  1. Pat, don’t massage, onto a freshly washed face.
  2. Let it absorb on its own as this formula’s hyaluronic acid is designed to penetrate deeper than a moisturizer.
