Save your money and get 1CC of Restylane injection instead! I just went through 3 sample sizes of this product, just does NOTHING!

This is a really good product. I give it a 4 rating due to the cost. In my opinion this is less of an anti-aging product and more of serum that makes your face look better while wearing it.. Like make-up in a way. I only use it during the day.
It seems to make the wrinkles/ imperfections less apparent and evens out your skin tone. It seems to plump out the skin and give you a nice glow.
Due to the cost, whenever I buy some revive, I always ask for a sample of this.

I have bought the full size after hearing about it on E channel. I found it to be an ok product but I will like it is Silicone and glycerin seating on my skin. I see that it smooth out my wrinkles if I apply it before my makeup. The packaging is cheap plastic botle from china. For $600 (1 oz) rather buy the Repair Serum from I'm Fabulous Cosmetics. I get the same results for only $45.

I first got hooked on some samples...after that it's a done deal your addicted. I was looking for a filler or something for between my eyes and crows feet. This stuff is amazing! amazing! I start to get freaked out when I'm getting low. It's so expensive I look to Ebay to help me out. I have tried many "line fillers" and so on this actually works.

I had this product for my 26th birthday as I thought I should start using anti ageing skin care now I'm passed the age of 25. This serum is £370 in the UK so it is very very expensive, however I was lucky enough to get one on eBay.
After using this serum for over a month, I can safely say that I do not like it. I haven't had the dramatic results I would have hoped for. The fine lines on my forehead are still there. When the serum has been applied the fine lines are gone but after I've cleansed I can see them again. So it does cover fine lines up but has not reduced them. The serum is just so silicony. This is why I tend to avoid synthetic products and stick to organic and natural ones. The only reason I allowed myself to use this one is because on EWG cosmetic database this serum is only a 1 safety rating so its very safe to use despite containing chemicals. I cannot wait until I've finished it off and moved to my next serum. I cannot understand why it is £370!? So the search for my perfect serum still remains....

I love several products from the line but I felt this made little difference. I won't repurchase. My bank account is grateful.

The previous reviews are pretty accurate. I would definitely try samples before buying this outright. I used it on my forehead- to minimize expression lines, and noticed it DID make them feel tighter and less noticeable. But it was pretty oily, and I had to be careful about how much I applied because it clogs pores easily.

Absolutely overrated! $600 for one ounce is just for the celebs and wealthy. If you are using a product that is this expensive then you THINK it is doing something. That is it. I used samples. You can call any Nieman Marcus and ask for the Revive counter. they are happy to send you a sample. If one store does not have it, call another,even out of state they will. It will fade marks and it feels fabulous. but I want results not feeling good. I had to give it a couple of stars for that. you can get it on ebay for 1/2 the price if you want to spend even that.

Don't even start using this product. You will become addicted to it I am 30 and this stuff takes away lines like Botox, fades scars, makes you look like you are 22 again. Curse you Revive for making this so expensive... I have also had the luxury of living in med spas and getting facials twice a week my whole life, so if you think this is going to replace fillers and botox, well Ladies, start using the stuff before its too late. I think its a miracle product for those really into skin care. Vanity, sigh....

Like many others, the price? I was lucky to get TWO of these...$1200 worth and I didnt really see any results either. However, I'm male, 25, and I only used it on lines on my forehead and nasal lines. It never really plumped those up (not that they are deep at all, just on the surface) but it DID temporarily make my forehead lines, and my deepest line, your line at rest, disappear IF I used it every night, then I would apply the MRC over it.
Anyway I love trying new products, love the allure of expensive lines, but I dont know what to do with this really, other than spot treat like on my forehead. since it is so expensive, I dont want to use it all over my face...are people doing that? I'm assuming. I have a couple of small strawberry moles appearing that I detest that maybe I'll spot treat with this, but I wont ever spend my own money on this...it's for beverly hills housewives and nyc socialites who throw down money without needing to hear about it...anyway it's just not so amazing as it is claimed to be I feel. It DOES have that gel-like texture someone mentioned, it doesnt penetrate like a serum. It makes your skin extremely soft, but those are the silicones, and with my sensitive skin, I dont want anything that will longterm clog my pores.
I may just sell the unopen one I have on ebay.

I used this serum a few years ago when it was launched. I didn't pay for it, it was given to me by a friend who works in the industry. I'm so glad I didn't spend the ridiculous amount of $600.00 for this stuff! I saw absolutely no volumizing effects from this product at all. I only used it on my nose-to-mouth lines which are getting deeper every year. Needless to say, I used this stuff for months as the bottle lasted a long time. I thought I would have seen at least a little plumping action. Absolutely nothing! I didn't like the thick and sticky texture of the serum, it's more of a gel than a serum. It practically all silicone! The KGF ingredient is so miniscule that I highly doubt that it would have any effect at all. You have to be careful with silicone as it can clog up the skin just like other occlusive ingredients. I would have put the KGF in a thinner, water based serum for quicker penetration. This stuff just sat on the skin surface. I would never purchase this product. I'd rather spend the $600.00 for Restylane which plumps up the skin instantly.

Got this for free and I absolutely refuse to rate it anything more than a zero (they make me put at least a "1") because $600 for 1 OZ of product is absolutely absurd. People are ridiculous and people who would pay full price for this make me hate society.
Anyway, I wonder if it would clear up my cold sore???

I didn't want to like this because it is very expensive but I tried a sample and absolutely loved it. Luckily my boyfriend wanted to try it after our La Prairie Cellular Gold Concentrate was done. I definitely feel like this is plumping up my fine lines. Excellent product, not sure if it is quite worth the $600!

This is simply amazing. It sped up my skin's natural exfoliation, like it says, and all my acne scars faded. In combo with ReVive's MRC at night, it has given me better skin than I've ever had. However, at 600 a bottle, i'll be searching for something else for a fraction of the price.

holly molly, another overpriced and overrated product from this company, pure silicones, what benefit?? I am now getting better results with way cheaper C serum.

This ultra expensive item makes my skin soft and smooth but i dont have a lot of wrinkles so it is hard for me to see major difference on my skin. I got it at Saks Fifth Avenue during their Friends and Family weekend 20% off. Because it is so expensive ($600 regular price), I am not sure if I will buy it again.

WOW...is all I can say about the insane price. Thank goodness for Ebay, where you can almost always find a deal on this at 1/2 price or less if you're a lucky and savvy bidder. That being said, this product is just insanely fabulous! I have never used a product as good for minimizing fine lines, evening skin tone and moisturizing without making me greasy. In fact, the finish on this product on the skin, is almost matte. It KILLS me that it is so expensive and it drives me even more crazy that no competitor has been able to duplicate the effects, consistency and feel of this product on your skin. I have given some precious samples to friends and family and each and every one flipped over it...and then wanted to kill me for introducing them to this once they found out it cost $600 an ounce. I have to say though, once you've used this product, it's addicting...and you HAVE to get more!!! The only thing I can compare it to is the finish you get when you use Benefit's Dr. Feelgood...but just in the matte but moisturized finish. Dr. Feelgood does not even the skin tone or minimize fine lines like this does.

Based on positive MUA reviews of this serum and other Revive products, I have added 3 Intensite products (a set including volumizing serum, les yeux and intensite creme lustre for $1,000 - YIKES) to my daily routine. The serum is working AMAZINGLY well on my mature skin! WOW is how Dr. Brown (using Nobel prize winning technology, he is the plastic surgeon behind the product) describes the results on his website, I agree! The serum feels divine, plumps skin instantly and long term I have fewer fine lines, more firmness and decreased redness. My husband and my dermatologist are both impressed with how my skin looks and feels and at this point (WOW again), my skin is glowing, gorgeous and "plumped" while my bank account is ugly and deflated.... but this is THE product I will never live without! UPDATE 5/26/07: I have recently noticed a significant decrease in brown spots from the whitening complex that is part of this product. It took several months, but that's another added benefit, making this even more of a "can't live without" item! SECOND UPDATE: 1/25/08: No matter how many other lines I try and love, this serum stays at the top of my list..it's fabulous!

My friend gave me a small sample of this. I put half of the 0.07 oz. vial on my skin and oh my god. It felt great!!! My makeup went on flawless and my face had a dewy youthful tight glow about it. If I could afford this I would use it for sure.

At $600 an oz this is a little beyond my budget :) I was given a bunch of small samples. I have been using it 2xs a day for 4 days now. My husband noticed my face looks softer. My face appears smoother and more clear. My normally on the dry side skin feels very moisturized. I probably have another 4-5 days to go on my samples. You use a very tiny bit in target areas. A ballpark guess is that 1 oz would last a good 6 months. It reminds me a little bit of Vaseline in consistency. The smell reminds me of cocoa. At 35 I would not consider this a product for me. Maybe in 5-10 years. It is aimed for mature skin as the product description says:
"Wrinkles are not the enemy of youth. More insidious is the subtle loss of facial volume that dramatically ages a face. Volume loss could never be managed with a skincare cream...until now. RéVive introduces its most potent molecule yet, KGF (Keratinocyte Growth Factor). Intensité Volumizing Serum with KGF augments the subtle loss of facial volume and plumps trouble areas (i.e. puppet and frown lines). KGF halts the aging process by turning over dying skin cells 8 times faster and hinders DNA fragmentation. Skin is immediately dewy and vibrant. KGF’s dynamic activity allows for a molecular dialogue with underlying layers of skin that contributes to increased volume after several weeks. Whitening Tri-Complex depigments the skin eliminating blemishes and dark spots associated with aging. Powerful anti-radical defense system shields against pollution, stress and damaging UVB rays. Intensité Volumizing Serum is the optimal solution before considering or in preparation for a surgical procedure.
SKIN TYPE: Intensive repair and volume enhancement for mature skin.
APPLICATION: Use sparingly, am and/or pm over the entire face or as a spot treatment, under a RéVive moisturizer. "
