I’m a staunch believer of “prevention is better than cure”. While I’m no way a poster child for all things fitness, I really do take care of myself by engaging in a healthy and active lifestyle. In case sickness strikes, I have but natural forces to blame. I mean, nobody’s invincible but at least I tried!
I treat wrinkles with the same attitude. If I can delay the occurrence, why not?! While I still experience breakouts here and there, my main concerns at this stage happen to be pore size and maturing skin. You know the equation well, where A=B. In my case A= aging B= unknown, in reference to the ultimate fountain of youth.
I had the chance to try another product from Reviva Labs, the high potency Elastin Serum (1 oz, $27). As if I haven’t stressed it enough, I’m big on serums. I have tried so many that I know exactly what my face wants. Plump, supple, smooth, what more can I ask for? Oh youth where art thou? haha!
Ingredients: Demineralized Water, Elastin, Polysorbate 20, Hawaiian Seaweed Extract, Glycerine(veg.), Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate.
Good for neck, nice as a primer! As you can see from the photo, this serum is more on the liquid side. Applied on clean face, I noticed slight lathering which dissipates upon absorption. Not that I see the microscopic action but you get what I mean right? It dries quickly, leaving my face feeling smooth like a baby’s butt. While it didn’t give me the plump I was hoping for, I was pleasantly surprised that I can use this serum in lieu of a regular face primer. Without additional reinforcement (setting powder, setting spray), my makeup lasted eight hours with minimal fading. Do you pay special attention to your neck? I do because more than wrinkles or crow’s feet, turkey neck gives me the ultimate creep!!! Needless to say, neck reveals our true age. It’s the traitor your mother didn’t warn you about. Reviva Labs claims that this serum is good for the neck so I’m using it religiously for that purpose. Because you know, prevention is better than cure!
Have you tried this serum?… and remember, give your neck serious TLC. I’m serious.
