Reviva Skin Care Review

I was first introduced to Reviva Labs by Overall Beauty, when I won a giveaway on their Beauty Blog.

I received a bottle of Reviva Hyaluronic Acid Serum and a small tub of their Optimum Artichoke Antioxidant Facial Mask, and she was so sweet to add a bottle of BB Couture "Santa Sak" :)

She had given me the advice to use the serum and the mask together to help skin retain moisture to combat dryness during the colder winter months, and boy was this product a life saver.

Then a couple of months later, I received an email from Reviva Labs asking me to review some of their new products.  I mentioned how I already tried 2 of their products (and loved them) and I that I would be happy to review some new products.  Can you believe she not only sent me some of their new products (I'll be reviewing them later) but sent me a new bottle of the  Reviva Hyaluronic Acid Serum  and a new tub of the Optimum Artichoke Antioxidant Facial Mask.

So no more dragging my feet, I had to do a review, to spread the word about their great products.  Also both of these products are incredibly affordable, and you do not have to use a lot of the product, so both will be lasting me a long, long time :)

This is what I did:
1. Wash my face
2. Steamed my face for 5-10 mins. (at home steamer)
3. Used my usual facial scrub to get all the oil and excess from my pores.

4. The serum is clear and not totally firm, so I pumped one "full" drop of serum on my hands

and lightly covered my entire face (thin layer)

5. On top of the serum I then applied the mask.  The mask is really loose and smooth, so be careful when you open the jar.

I applied it in a thin layer over my entire face, avoiding my eyes and lips.

I left it on for 10-15 mins and rinsed both of them off. They were super easy to remove, I didn't have to rinse my face 10 million times or wipe it over and over with my wash cloth...LOL. After that I applied my usual night cream.

My face immediately looked brighter, softer and more moisturized.  I now use it once a week (and have for the past 2 months) and it has been a life saver during these dry months.

UPDATE: I gave both of these products to a co-worker to try at home, and her and her daughter LOVED THEM.  She immediately placed an order that night! Amazing!

Also the Serum can be applied under creams in the evening ( I've done this) or alone to hydrate the skin.

Hyaluronic Acid Serum
$22.00, 1 oz.
"Our highest-potency daily moisture booster! Reviva Labs has now compounded a higher level of premium Hyaluronic Acid into a precious fluid that can help raise skin's moisture level to fill-in furrows, plump up tissues and tone-down lines. Apply under creams in the evening or alone to hydrate skin. Benefits: Unlike products that depend on moisture in the air, HA can help hydrate skin even in dry climates or heated rooms that rob skin of moisture."

The mask smells heavenly and has a great "silver sheen" to it.. I feel like the "silver surfer" in the Fantastic 4 movie..LOL

Optimum Artichoke Antioxidant Facial Mask
 $16.00, 1.5oz.
"New anti-free radical Discovery helps boost skins Immune system. Helps treat past damage as it helps boost skin immunity to future free radical damage. Apply like a moisturizer. Improves texture & glow."

All Reviva Labs products contain NO animal ingredients and they DO NOT test on animals...this has been their motto since 1973!!!!
For over 28 Years Reviva Labs has been producing all natural skin-care products that help leave your skin healthier and more youthful-looking.

If you suffer from dry skin or just want a youthful "kick in the pants", get these 2 products and you will not be disappointed.  I will be reviewing  more Reviva products  for dark spots and for eyes, as soon as I'm done testing them out. :)  Stay Tuned!

Thank You Reviva Labs for sending me these products to share with my followers, it's nice to know there is a company that truly cares about our skin and the quality of their products! 37 years of skin care speaks for itself! :)

@Mayo- Just to clarify, I am not paid to review products, they are sent to me and if I like them, I post about them, and if not, then I don't... period! That being said if there is a site you would like me to check out don't SPAM me, just email me. :)
