Reviva Labs Summer Skincare Giveaway/Review for May
We've partnered with Reviva Labs for six months of Summer Skincare Giveaways, and May offers one lucky winner a pair of products to get your tan on safely, and protect your pout from the sun! Reviva will be offering a giveaway every month through September on this blog and several others, so you'll have lots of chances to win some great products. Here's a description and review for each product in this month's prize pack:
Vitamin E Oil Stick: This little wonder stick provides a clear gloss on your lips that moisturizes and protects with an SPF 15 factor. It's never sticky, has little to no scent, and leaves your lips ultra-soft. It can also be used under the eye area for moisture and protection, and I've used it several times to moisturize my cuticles when I don't have a proper cuticle product handy. Reviva Labs informed me that your lips do not have Melanin in them, making them more vulnerable to the sun's harmful rays. Using an SPF product such as this one will protect them from burning and keep them hydrated. This is a product that I'm never without, and I always have a couple of tubes stashed away. It seems to melt right into my lips, and I find that it lasts longer than most lip balm protectants.
Ingredients: Soybean oil, candelilla wax, beeswax, castor oil, octylmethoxycinnamate, ozokerite, oxybenzone, cetyl esters, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), olive oil, allantoin, linden essential oil.
Tan Without Sun Face & Body Milk: This product gives my skin a nice touch of color within four hours, and I'm also able to use it on my face with no adverse reactions. This is a "milk" so it's a thinner formula making it easier to blend and apply to your skin, which reduces the chances of streaking. The smell is mild and much easier to tolerate than many other brands I've used. I use this for 3-4 days in a row to get my desired depth of color, then continue to use it twice a week to maintain a golden glow. The color lasts about 3 days without continued use, and gradually fades over that time. There is no SPF in this product, so use of a sunscreen is advised.
Ingredients: Purified Water, Glyceryl Stearate and PEG 100 Stearate, Dihydroxyacetone (keto sugar), Isopropyl Palmitate, Sorbitol, Coconut Oil, Cetyl Alcohol, Myristyl Myristate, Cetyl Ester, Allantoin, ImadUrea, Methyl & Propyl Paraben, Lactic Acid. Does not contain Coloring Dyes, Stains.
