Curtain Call: Reviva Labs Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream

Happy 4th of July to my readers in the US! I hope you’re all having a good time this weekend. Today’s post is a scheduled one as I am spending time with my cousins in Philly for this short holiday. Here’s another segment of Curtain Call and this time it’s on take on the Reviva Labs Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream.

Reviva Labs Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream

This face cream comes in a small white screw top plastic tub container. I threw away the box already so we’ll just go with the description on the website:

“Reviva Labs now offers a new answer to helping firm, tighten and “lift” skin with DMAE…as Alpha Lipoic Acid and Vitamin C Ester fight free radicals and future skin aging. As a special Reviva boost, this dramatic trio is encased in a soy liposome for deeper, time release action during the night. Allantoin and Aloe Vera are added to soothe and calm stressed skin, contributing to a healthy, vibrant glow. For supple, more youthful looking skin, it’s another major advance in the battle against skin aging. Benefits: helps improve skin tone and glow as its powerful antioxidant action fights free-radical damage. As your body rests during the night, you have hours of uninterrupted replenishing nutrients that help tighten and “lift” skin to treat the effects of time as it helps fight future skin aging.”

It is described on the side of the jar with the following:

“Contains the powerful antioxidant Alpha Lipoic Acid and Vitamin C Ester, also features DMAE for firming action, this multifaceted formula helps tighten, firm and tone facial skin, as it fights future signs of aging. All 3 key ingredients are blended into a special soy liposome for deeper absorption.

A dramatic nutrient complex, this formula helps skin look younger and helps protect against future skin damage.”

The other side of the jar states the following directions: “Use at night. Apply lightly over entire face & throat. (Massage with upward movements)”

What I love about this product? The formula is extremely light. It goes on smoothly and my skin immediately absorbs it. I didn’t get to fully test this product because of a funny story really. I was about 3 weeks in using this face cream when I spent last Christmas over at my in-laws place. Amidst all the presents and such, I thought I must’ve misplaced the face cream I was using cause I couldn’t find it the day I was leaving. It also crossed my mind that maybe my dog took it. Feeling reassured that I must’ve packed it somewhere with all the stuff we were taking back with us, I left and figured I’d find it at home. Fast forward to 2 months ago. My MIL was telling me that the face cream she got for Christmas was awesome. I gave her a few and asked her which one it was and she sent me a picture of it. I laughed when I saw it cause that’s the missing face cream. And boy, she sang high praises for it that I made sure ULTA carries it and told her that so she could get it once it runs out. She loves how it doesn’t feel greasy on her face and she told me she really felt a difference in it and that it’s just a good face cream overall. She ran out of it last time I saw her which is 2 weeks ago. Using it once a day and lasting for a little over 6 months is impressive. I am sold on this because not only I liked it during the short time I got to use it but my MIL loved it as well. I remember the face cream being unscented and that’s another huge plus in my book. The jar it comes in clearly states “PARABEN FREE”.

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing at all! This is one of my favorite face creams from this brand when taking my short experience and my MIL’s full experience into consideration.

This item retails for about $23 and is available on their website as well as on other retailers.
