People who know me well know that I am not a lady obsessed with beauty. My casual approach to life on most days is also a better fit for the busy homeschooling lifestyle. Yet, I DO want to look nice and want a more polished look for time spent away from the house.
One thing that was bugging me to no end was flaking skin on my face (especially on my nose and forehead) even after I had applied make-up. I’m hoping to have banished it permanently after starting to use two products from Reviva Labs ~ Non-Chemical Light Skin Peel and Make-up Primer.
The Light Skin Peel was not quite what I was expecting for texture. Previous experience in my teen years had peel products being a homogenous gel that was spread all over your face and allowed to harden and peel off. Reviva’s has the appearance of a mask with the textured look you’d expect from that kind of product. This smell of this product was reminiscent of seasoning mixes I’ve used for cooking. Not that it’s a bad thing! It just wasn’t the chemically smell associated with the peels from years ago.
Being that the peel is non-chemical and more gentle that others, it didn’t have amazing results after the first use for my true trouble spot of my nose. BUT, a few more uses along with regular skin care has my nose looking much better. And, even the first use had other parts of my face feeling smooth as baby skin. The 1.5-ounce container, which retails at $20, is going a long way for me.
Reviva’s Makeup Primer helps create a smooth surface for you to apply your makeup. Know the old saying “a little dab will do ya’?” That most definitely applies for this product. You’ll be amazed at how far a small dot worth of this product will go. It spreads easily and provides a nice, smooth base.
The first time I used it, I was in a rush and didn’t allow it to fully ‘sink in’ and dry. So, the results were a bit disappointing. However, later uses where I let it sit longer provided better results. Coupled with the use of the light skin peel on a weekly basis really helped to give a smoother appearance to my skin, too. The 1 ounce vial retails for $19.50, but seems to just last and last right now. (Granted, I don’t use it every day, which probably helps stretch it out even longer.)
