Reviva Labs - Lastin' With Elastin, DMAE Cream Keepin' On
My love for Reviva Labs is no secret. I've loved everything of theirs that I've tried. I dig their simple, slightly retro packaging. Their price point is super reasonable for the amount and efficacy of their products.
When I was asked if I wanted to try their newly reformulated Elastin Serum, at first I was like, sure! and then, I was like, what's that?
As we age, our skin starts to lose its ability to bounce back into place after being stretched. Our skin's loss of Elastin is partially responsible for that. This high-potency serum feeds the skin special Elastin to help boost its elasticity and firmness.
Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream a bit ago, but I hadn't used it yet. So, I decided to pair them together.
DMAE is a lifting and firming agent, and the Vitamin C and Alpha Lipoic Acid help fight free radicals and aging.
Before I go on, can I just point out that Reviva Labs puts an expiration date on all their products - in plain sight? I wish more companies did this. I also love that Reviva Labs is cruelty-free.
The hook for this product is not just in the ingredients, but in the way they are blended together, and the liposome technology that delivers the ingredients to the skin.
What I didn't get from this? more breakouts. That's right, this duo of skincare didn't cause my skin to breakout or get irritated. More often than not, when I try anti-aging products, they are too rich for my oily skin, and it's pimple-city. I was so happy that my skin loved these products.
What did I notice? After using this combination nightly for a few weeks, I noticed something I'd never noticed before. I guess I absentmindedly touched my cheeks, and I was startled. They were..plumper. The texture was firmer and denser.
I actually spent a few minutes just touching my face. It was pretty cool. I've been testing another skincare regimen for about a week, and that effect has diminished, so I'm pretty sure it was a result of the Elastin and/or DMAE cream.
You know I love a product when I do a mani inspired by it. This floral nail art is inspired by the DMAE Cream packaging.
I can't recommend the stable of products from Reviva Labs enough. Here's my review of their Seaweed Soap, and also their Hypoallergenic Mascara, and also their Vitamin K cream. If you'd like more information or to purchase Reviva Labs products, please check out their Facebook page, or their website.
