I posted a while back about giving Re’Vive Skincare a try. I love the line’s premise, Nobel Prize Award winning findings incorporated into skincare. It starts with a bioengineered molecule called EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) which regenerates aging skin at a molecular level. The photos posted are amazing and they even offer an extremely confident free sampling program. I was able to try a good portion of this line and I really liked it. I’ll review the products I tried, and also include a Q&A with their VP of Brand Management.
Q- For an average woman in her 20’s-early 40’s what would you say are the essentials in your line she should be using?
A- 1. Serum Protectif: Essential protection from environmental pollutants including free radicals, exhaust and smoke.
2. Sensitif Cellular Repair Cream: Maximum amounts of Nobel Prize-winning-ReVive-exclusive bioengineered growth factor Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) plus SPF 15.
3. Moisturizing Renewal Cream: EGF and a mild glycolic acid exfoliation, for night use only.
4. Masque Des Yeux: A hypoallergenic eye mask that plumps, firms and removes wrinkles. Brightens the entire eye area and perfect for those ‘burning the candle at both ends’!
Q- What dictates the price point of the products and why should women spend more for them?
A- There was considerable research in the development of the line, particularly for the patented Human Epidermal Growth Factors whose discovery won a Nobel Prize for Medicine and Physiology in the mid 80′s. The serums are our ‘specialist’ products that contain exceptionally expensive ingredients, the most expensive of which is telomerase in Peau Magnifique.
For starters, I really liked the Cleanser Exfoliante which had mild exfoliating beads in a creamy base that removed all traces of dirt and makeup and left behind really soft skin.
It really is hard to top this eye cream, I really think I did see a difference in my own eyes after a few weeks of using it and the texture is perfect.
Masque De Glaise is probably my favorite mud mask I’ve ever used. It’s super thick and really effective, you can see an immediate difference in your skin’s clarity right after you remove it.
If there is only one product you buy from this line, make it the Moisturizing Renewal Cream which promises dramatic results and tight, glowing skin. With regular use you should notice a visible difference in two weeks.
