Neck/Decollete Cream -Revive -Neck Renewal Cream

foto

Never thought I would need to worry about neck lines - at least for another decade, but in the last few months I've been noticing a horizontal line that starts a few inches below my ear lobe and runs right the way around to the other side. To make it worse, on one side there is another line branching off diagonally from that one. The cause of the secondary line is from a repeated movement, in this case turning my head to that side in particular (which is why I don't have the same problem on the other side). The main line however is just a result of age, or as I'd prefer to describe it: a breakdown in collagen.


At $165 USD for 2.5oz this is one of the more upmarket neck creams available. It's an SPF15 formulation which is a bonus as I don't have to use a sunblock on top of this one. It's a rose-fragranced scent which is nice but not strong enough to clash with my perfume. Been using diligently every AM and PM as instructed.


Ok personally I feel that the SPF in a formula used on a night time application is unnecessary. Add to that a lack of Retinol or Vitamin C to help rebuild some of that collagen production that is needed to lessen neck lines, plus an absence of any other 'rebuilding' ingredients as far as I can see from the list and I do have to stop and wonder what it is doing for me. However I'm adamant this should have been in 2 formulas - one just as it is, with SPF for the day and one night time version with Retinol/Vit C added and no SPF. I think this combination would have worked far better and given more noticeable results (Hello Revive employees if you happen to be reading!). Definitely seems like a missed opportunity.

Did I see results? Well I used for a total of 2 months, in which time the only difference I did notice was to the appearance of some fine lines on my neck, nothing on the horizontal one. At least not that I can discern. Might be worth me trying for longer and I may re-purchase for that reason, but the line of neck/decollete creams on my dressing table itching to be tried tells me that won't be anytime soon!

Cleansers -Revive -Cleanser Gentil

I'm loving this cleanser. I typically use Sisley, which is amazing, but I wanted to switch it up. This cleans very well, it's gentle, yet highly effective. After using the cleanser my skin has a slight glow that makes all the difference in the world. The price is justified due to its effectiveness and the small amount needed. I'll be using this for a while.

Skincare - Face -Revive -Intensite Creme Lustre

on 1/29/2017 4:00:00 PM

I have always struggled with sensitive skin, but when I got into my late thirties, I began to really struggle with VERY dry skin. I drink copious amounts of water, but regardless of reading all the right materials, trying recommended treatments, nothing really worked. I now use this lovely cream and it actually works! I stumbled across it due to a GWP from Barney's (purchased a bottle of SL De Profundis) last year, and out of all the fabulous deluxe samples I was sent, this stood out as a solid winner.

I would guess that only those of us with seriously dry skin would notice improvements; this is not necessary for "normal" skin.


Tinted Moisturizer -Revive -Revive Le Tint Moisturizng Veil

on 1/8/2017 8:27:00 PM

Absolutely LOVE Revive Le Tint Moisturizing Veil. It leaves me looking fresh and young -- and my skin is glowing and gorgeous.

You must shake the bottle before use to blend the pigments and oils. You use a dropper to disperse the product keeping it sanitary -- and it is buildable. I put on one layer -- and then usually add another light layer = perfection!

It is everything Armani's Maestro should have been -- but isn't. Le Tint Moisturizing Veil is offers coverage and leaves a fabulous finish with no dry patches. And BTW there is NO talc used in the ingredients.

Revive description:

What it is:
A veil of fresh, sheer color in a lightweight oil. Available in 3 shades.

Developed for:
All skin types

Product technology:
Unique light-enhancing pigments create a sheer, even complexion. Super lightweight oils, native to the Mediterranean region and eastern Africa, nourish skin powered by RES technology to help promote skin cell turnover to reveal smoother, softer skin.

Deeply nourishes skin while providing a smooth, soft layer of protection against dehydration and leaves skin with a dewy glow. Special light-enhancing pigments blend with skin and blur imperfections.

Treatments (Face) -Revive -Pore Correctif

on 11/19/2016 11:40:00 AM

Hmm, I've been using this for about six months now and I can't say I've noticed any real improvement in my skin. To provide a bit of background, I don't have particularly large pores other than the normal smattering on my nose and a few on my inner cheeks that are a little too large for my liking. So I wasn't coming to this product with inflated expectations that it would be the magic cure to some dire pore related situation. To be honest, the reason I bought this serum was because it happened to be on sale and so I figured why not. Fancy brand + on sale = always a great deal, right? (Nope!) That said, even on sale, this was pricey so I expected it to do something positive for my skin.

In terms of results, I should probably clarify that what I haven't seen are LONG term results. I definitely do think that there are short term results which are immediately appreciable to the eye. The serum has a pore blurring effect and smooths out the skin nicely. The texture is quite viscous and concentrated so you only need a small amount (thank goodness considering the price). There is also some fine pearl, perhaps mica, in here which gives you an instant glow. The luminosity is apparent when you first pump it out onto your hand but it isn't detectably shimmery on the face. Basically, this is a primer disguised as a treatment serum. It's a rather nice primer, although I think the price is ridic and definitely not worth it. But if you have cash to blow and want a luminous, pore blurring primer, you may like this. It's a good base for foundation, doesn't pill at all and also seems to help the longevity of foundation. On the other hand, this is not a treatment serum in my opinion - don't use it before you go to bed. The benefits will be gone once you wash it off.

Pros:
- You get instant results. Blurs pores and gives skin a subtle glow.
- Smooths skin into a nice even base for foundation.
- Good packaging. Comes in a tall vacuum pump bottle which is good at dispensing the right amount of product.
- Didn't break out ot irritate my sensitive skin.
- Can be used as a primer and is effective for that purpose. Improves longevity of foundation.

Cons:
- very overpriced for what it claims to to
- lots of silicones
- not a treatment serum by any means, this is an expensive primer at most
- bottle is flimsy and light weight, easy to knock over.

Would I rebuy? No. Not a terrible product but it failed to make any appreciable long term difference in my skin (positive or negative).

Ingredients:
Aqua/Water/Eau, Cyclopentasiloxane, Polysilicone-11, Dimethicone, Isododecane, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Acetyl Glucosamine, PEG-10 Dimethicone, Sucrose Stearate, Acrylamide/Sodium Acryloyldimethyltaurate Copolymer, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Isohexadecane, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Punica Granatum Sterols, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, Sodium Citrate, Mica, Linoleic Acid, Polysorbate 20, Decyl Glucoside, Polysorbate 80, Propanediol, Squalane, Potassium Sorbate, Caffeine, Citric Acid, Lecithin, Whey Protein, Hexylene Glycol, Laureth-12, Lysolecithin, Lysophosphatidic Acid, Hordeum Vulgare Extract, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Polyglutamic Acid, Boswellia Serrata Extract, Oligopeptide-24, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8.
