Reviva Labs: 3-Step Layering System Using Nasolabial Fold Multi-Peptide Cream

I had the opportunity, from Reviva Labs, to revamp my entire skin care routine. A regimen of three Reviva Labs products, layered in a particular order, has made a change, for the better, for my skin.

Here are the three products I used…

I am beginning to see some sun spots appear on my face, joining the fine lines and even some wrinkles that have crept onto my countenance. What Hyaluronic Acid Serum does is counter all of those things. This serum instructs the skin cells to hold in more moisture which, in a short time, softens the lines and wrinkles and plumps up the skin…

Following the Hyaluronic Acid Serum, I used 5% Glycolic Acid Night/Day Cream ($25)…

This cream directs the skin to turn over, or exfoliate, quicker. When this happens, the skin stays soft, radiate and healthy. As we age, our skin slows down this process. 5% Glycolic Acid Night/Day Cream keeps the skin acting younger by allowing the turn over of skin cells to happen quicker. And check out the ingredients; you know what all of those things are! I never felt any stinging or discomfort using this cream and, none with the other two.

This is powerful stuff and I wanted to take every advantage of using it properly. I used this cream not only on my face (I did avoid the area right under my eyes) but also down my neckline too. My skin was showing results of being softer and firmer before I even moved to using it during the day.

The third and last product I used was the brand-new to the Reviva Labs family products; Nasolabial Fold Multi-Peptide Cream ($49) . First thing I noticed was that a little goes a long ways…

Upon first touch of this cream, you will know that you have before you a product of quality…

As per the instructions, I applied the Nasolabial Fold Multi-Peptide Cream along the deep lines by my mouth and down to the area where my chin and cheeks meet. As we age, our skin starts to sag in these areas (alas). While not claiming to remove these deep lines, peptides are little molecules that help plump up cells and allow them to hold in moisture. As a bonus, my skin felt extremely soft. Even the next morning, I noticed that my face still felt soft without a bit of dryness to it, which it tends to do after 8 hours of sleeping.

After 8 days of using all three products, I noticed that any dry patches on my face were eliminated. My foundation sat on my face completely smooth. And, unlike some products that are made to make the skin firmer and more plump, these three Reviva Labs products made my skin softer with no tight-feeling sensation.

Reviva Labs suggests that when you use their Nasolabial Fold Multi-Peptide Cream that you do it with three-step layering regimen. To find out which products work best for your needs, I suggest you review the information at their website here. That’s where I did my research to pick which two products would work best for me, along with the Nasolabial Fold Multi-Peptide Cream.

I have tried many Reviva Labs products and every single time they have proven to live up to their claims, provide me with quality products and, results that I see in just a short time.

Reviva Labs: Makeup Primer, Vitamin E Stick and Mascara Reviews

I got a chance to try out a few Reviva’s products. I have been interested in trying them and, had only read good things about them on other beauty blogs.


Here are the first two products…

From the left: Vitamin E Stick and Makeup Primer

Vitamin E oil is my first stop for any scars. Vitamin E can keep the tissue soft and pliable while it heals. But you don’t need to wait until you have a boo-boo to use this Vitamin E Stick. I have been using this stick for my lips, before bedtime. It’s just a nighttime ritual for me to slather on a lip conditioner. I tried the Vitamin E Stick under my eyes and even though it can help with wrinkles and dry skin, it didn’t sink in, or absorb, into my skin. I’ll keep this to use just on my lips and fresh scars, if I should get one.

The Vitamin E Stick doesn’t have any taste but, it does smell a bit medicinal. In fact, to me, it smells like fresh cut hay. 
Next, is what I’ll call the best discovery of 2012: Reviva’s Makeup Primer. This stuff is beyond awesome. 

I have a favorite high-end face primer that I have used for years. Reviva Makeup Primer rivals this one and then some. I use mineral makeup foundation so I can’t speak on how it performs with a liquid foundation. But, I do use cream highlighters and blushes and I found Reviva’s Makeup Primer to hold those creams in place all day. Yes, even in hot Florida days. This Primer applied so smoothly and felt so good on my skin.

Reviva’s Makeup Primer now has permanent residency on the Vanity.

And, I didn’t even know Reviva had makeup, much less mascara…
This mascara is hypo-allergenic and claims to balance the pH of the lashes which will avoid eye irritation. I found that this was a mascara what was easy to apply and it didn’t flake on me at all.

The applicator is easy to use to separate and coat each lash…
I found that Reviva’s mascara worked to enhance the color of my lashes but, it didn’t thicken them. So, I use this mascara for a more natural eye look.

You can find Reviva products at Ulta and Walgreens. I’m sure there are other drugstores that sell these products as well.

Have you tried any Reviva products? Any other Reviva products you’d like to recommend to me?
