As I mature, blemishes and fine lines are my skin's biggest enemies. So I'm thankful whenever I discover natural products that effectively help me keep a youthful glow.
Reviva Labs is an affordable health food store brand that's been around for 37 years and is used in over 1200 professional skin-care salons. I received a few samples and I've been using Reviva's gentle Glycolic Acid Cleanser ($12) and Glycolic Acid Toner ($12) to help unclog pores and control pesky blackheads and blemishes. Reviva's glycolic formulation is made with non-toxic, fruit-based Alpha Hydroxy derivatives without mineral oil or any other pertrolatum derivatives.
Each night, I also apply Reviva's Hyaluronic Acid Serum ($22), a high-potency daily moisture booster. The professional strength serum helps keep your skin hydrated in dry climates and heated rooms that rob skin of moisture (New York City apartments are notorious for this).
Reviva has been a part of my daily skin-care regimen for about a month. So far, so good. The products are gentle and non-irritating. And compared to other acne and anti-aging products on the market, the price is right.
