Reviva Labs September Summer Skincare Giveaway!
First, let me announce that the winner of our Sweets for Feet Giveaway is Jennifer! Please contact me at email@example.com to arrange delivery of your prize! Congratulations to her, and thanks to all who entered.
WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT: OCTOPUS818/Lisa is the winner of the Reviva Labs Summer Skincare Giveaway for September!
Today we have the final Reviva Labs Summer Skincare Giveaway! Each month for the last six months, Reviva Labs has been featuring their Summer Skincare Giveaways on several blogs. The product prize duos for each month have focused on caring for your skin, from prepping it for the warmer months, to hydrating and protecting it throughout the Summer heat, and finally, to repairing and renewing your facial skin for the upcoming dryer, cooler weather.
This month, one random winner will receive Reviva's Hyaluronic Acid Serum, and their TGF beta-1 Cream. Read on for more information about these useful products!
Reviva Lab's Hyaluronic Acid Serum-1 oz. bottle/$22.00
I've been using Reviva's Hyaluronic Acid Serum for over a year now, and it is a staple of my facial skin care routine. I apply this as a serum after cleansing, followed by my moisturizer. This product can also be used alone. Here is the product description: 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. If also seeking firmness, alternate with our DMAE Firming Fluid. 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 results I receive from this product include diminished fine lines around my eyes and lips, skin feels soft and hydrated, and skin texture is even without any dry or flaky areas. In addition to applying it around my lips to help with fine lines, I recently began applying it directly on my lips, and I do believe it plumps them up just a bit.
There is absolutely no greasy feel to this, and it absorbs instantly. One pump is all I need, so a litle goes a long way.
TGF (Tissue Growth Factor) beta-1 Cream-2 oz. jar/$35.00
The TGF beta-1 Cream is a moisturizer designed to improve the tissue structure of your skin. By increasing collagen systhesis by 119%, this product can help your skin regain some of the lost collagen that has been diminished due to the aging process. Reviva Labs recommends using this product in 2-week cycles, so I've been utilizing this as my moisturizer applied over either the Hyaluronic Serum or some other serum I may be testing, for two weeks. I then switch to another moisturizer for 2 weeks. It's a light cream formula with no scent, there is no greasy residue, and it absorbs very quickly. If you need a heavier moisturizer, you can apply this product as your serum, followed by a moisturizer.
The packaging states that "It won't happen overnight. But after 8 weeks, you'll look at your skin and say...WOW!" I am going into my fifth week (2 weeks using this, 2 weeks using another moisturizer, now a couple of days into my fifth week using the TGF-beta-1 Cream again), and I'll admit, I noticed no real difference after the first 2 weeks. On my third day of using this product for the second 2 weeks, I'm noticing a nice "glow" to my skin, along with what seems to be some added firmness. I'll continue using this for the full 8 weeks, and hopefully I'll be able to say "WOW"! Below is more information on this product from Reviva Labs:
Reviva's Collagen Regeneration Cream is distinct because it both repairs damaged cells and stimulates new collagen. So current imperfect collagen is "corrected" and new collagen flourishes. This renewed collagen combination boosts moisture, improves tissue structure, helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and enhances overall skin tone and texture. What's more, our rich blend of ingredients, including the potent antioxidant CoQ10 helps protect against future damage. Collagen Regeneration Cream can be used alone or "layered" over various anti-aging serums or combined with other anti-aging treatments in your beauty regimen.
