Light Skin Peel By Reviva Labs

REVIVA LABS LIGHT SKIN PEEL 

Hello my Beauties,

Monday is here… WE LOVE MONDAYS  RIGHT?

Lets start this morning with a refreshing and relaxing  thought … Peeling

Hmm! Suddenly the word peeling  sounds painful…

Relax… This kind of peeling  is everything but painful 🙂

I want to start by giving you some important information on face peel.

What is face peeling?

Consider this information From Dr. Herschenfeld and Alexiades-Armenakas…..

“Peels typically contain the same ingredients as dermatologists’ peels but in lower concentrations. They gently remove the outermost layer of your skin, producing a smoother texture and sometimes helping even out pigmentation. They may also help fade fine lines or clean out pores. Masks can provide intensive moisture, absorb excess oil, or deliver antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, or acne-fighting treatments to the skin.

Acne-prone skin can benefit from peels that contain salicylic acid. Sensitive skin may do better with less irritating lactic acid peels or mild physical peels. Many products contain combinations of these active ingredients.

The biggest difference between masks and peels and products such as cleansers is the duration of application. Cleansers are quick-on/quick-off. Masks and peels are left on for a specific length of time, increasing the amount of active ingredients that penetrates the skin.

With peels, the degree to which the bonds between dead skin cells break apart and disappear is determined in part by how long you allow the acids to work. It’s best to use peels sparingly. The biggest mistake women make is applying peels daily. Daily application over stresses the skin. Peels can contribute to sun sensitivity too.

The FDA has standards for the percentages of active ingredients in peels and masks allowed in over-the-counter products. For example, glycolic acid and salicylic acid (often found in peels) are limited to 10% and 2%, respectively. Be wary of masks or peels with higher percentages. These should not be dispensed without a doctor’s supervision. “

Now that you have more knowledge about face peeling let’s talk about my new favorite peel from Reviva Labs.

Here is some important information provided directly from Reviva Labs ……….

“Peeling” is a European term for one of the most unique European items in the entire cosmetic field. THIS IS NOT A HARSH CHEMICAL PEEL. It doesn’t “peel skin” as we know it, but gently lifts off more hardened, dried skin cells than can be achieved by scrubs or any other “exfoliating” product. Dead-cell accumulation prevents treatment products from penetrating and keeps skin tone from looking fresh and vibrant. For aging and problem skin, PEEL is absolutely vital; it offers multiple benefits, which one can see and feel with just one application. Used by Europe’s top Skin Treatment Specialists as a supplementary cleansing step in any skin care program.

Directions:

Once or twice a week, apply a light coat of SKIN PEEL all over cleansed face and throat. Let dry 3-5 minutes. When fully dry, rub off with fingers, dry towel or cosmetic sponge. If you want a “mini-facial” at home, follow with a mask.

 Ingredients:

 Purified Water, SDA Alcohol 40, Crushed Almonds, Vegetable Oil, Zinc Oxide, Kaolin, Starch, Glycerin, Chamomile, Methylcellulose, Salyicylic Acid, Allantoin, Papain, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid, Oil of Thyme.

 Benefits:

  The only product of its kind. The next best treatment to a professional salon facial. No harsh chemicals, no skin irritations. Improves skin appearance faster than any other product.  Super effective for Ethnic skin type, removes traces of “ashiness” quickly.  Any skin type, any age, can benefit from a weekly “Peel.”  Exfoliation is now recommended by dermatologists as part of their acne-treatment program; as well as for aging skin.  Reviva Labs introduced the concept of “exfoliation” to Health Food Stores over 26 years ago. At that time, no major brand or Dermatologist talked about exfoliation.  Exfoliation? As we get older, the cell renewal process of the skin slows down and dead cells accumulate on the skin’s surface, dulling skin as well as blocking pores. When Light Peel removes the dead cells, it reveals the fresher cells beneath. Our Peel ingredients also stimulate the deeper new cells to move upward at a faster rate – causing the skin surface to look tighter, clearer and healthier.

MOST IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT REVIVA LABS PRODUCTS

NO animal ingredients

NO animal testing 

( if you care about animals, this is the product for you)

Lets talk about texture, and packaging…..

It’s thick, but not too thick… It has in it; grains to help exfoliate the skin for a deep clean and softness.

I love this packaging (box) ,  When I look at it ,  it speaks to me …hahaha …really it does…

Something like : ” natural, refreshing, want to feel me ? put me on…” 🙂

I love it, so pretty and so appropriate for the type of product.

The container inside is also very nice and very appropriate for the mask, the only thing I would suggest would be to add something that can be used to gently apply the product into the skin….:)

Here are some swatches for you !

Put it on….

(found on Goolgle, credit to Original Source)

Peel it off….

creamy…

My Thoughts on the Peel

I think it is pretty evident  so far, that I am in love with the skin peel, the packaging, what it does, and what this company stands for…

Everything about this product from texture to packaging is super appropriate, easy to use, natural, and relaxing.

I encourage all my readers to try the peel, it is not expensive at all, very affordable… Get one, use it while taking a warm and relaxing bubble bath , or after showering ….lay down for a while with some soft music and let the peel work on your face.. you will find it relaxing and rejuvenating …for real 🙂

My suggestions

The only suggestions I have for Reviva Labs on this product is to include, an item that can be used to gently apply the product evenly on the skin; other than that …I think it is fabulous 🙂

Collagen Regenerator By Reviva Labs

 

 Reviva Labs Collagen Regeneration Creme with Tissue Regrowth Factors

Hello My Beautiful Ladies and Gentleman,

Hope everyone is doing FANTASTIC today, as for me; I have a headache…but it’ll go away soon  (I hope 😦 )

I really want to talk to you guys today about another REVIVA LABS product that I really like and think you might enjoy. I also want to give you guys some important information on Collagen and Collagen Regeneration. I want to make sure that you all understand what it is, and what it does to your skin in terms of beauty, health, and youth.

WHAT IS COLLAGEN ?

   

You are probably looking at these images and thinking….WHAT  IS THAT? or you just may be thinking about how complex this actually may be….

If you are looking at it and asking questions in your head…it’s a good thing, because it means you will most likely pay attention to the information that you are about to read, are likely to fully engage, imagine it and fully comprehend it.

Simply…. ” Collagen is a part of the connective tissue that in the skin helps in firmness, suppleness and constant renewal of skin cells. Collagen is vital for skin elasticity.”

 Reference: http://www.news-medical.net/health/Collagen-What-is-Collagen.aspx

Hmm, does that explain it? It does…a bit; but it is actually a lot more complex and a lot more important that it seems to be.

Consider this valuable information provided By Dr Ananya Mandal, MD

Collagen is a protein made up of amino-acids, which are in turn built of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. Collagen contains specific amino acids – Glycine, Proline, Hydroxyproline and Arginine. Collagen makes up approximately 30% of the proteins within the body. These are tough and strong structures found all over the body: in bones, tendons and ligaments.

Collagen helps to give strength to various structures of the body and also protects structures like the skin by preventing absorption and spreading of pathogenic substances, environmental toxins, micro – organisms and cancerous cells. Collagen protein is the cement that holds everything together. Collagen is also present in all the smooth muscle tissues, blood vessels digestive tract, heart, gallbladder, kidneys and bladder holding the cells and tissues together. Collagen is even the major component of the hair and nails.”

VIDEO

 

Dr. Mandal, MD continues his article by explaining Aging and Collagen…….

With age, collagen production slows and the cells structures weaken. The skin gets thinner and is easier to damage, hair gets lifeless, skin sags and wrinkles, tendons and ligaments become less elastic, joints get stiff etc.”.

Reviva Labs Collagen Regeneration Creme 

Now that you have gained valuable knowledge on Collagen ; it’s time to talk about this amazing product…

This product information is provided directly from Reviva Labs…

Reviva Labs is re-introducing Collagen Regeneration Cream – our new name explains the benefits faster! For “newness” to your skin, unique natural growth factors repair damaged collagen as they stimulate new collagen. It’s known that sun-damaged skin contains damaged “DNA” collagen. Thus, collagen’s water-binding capacity is reduced and water loss, skin firmness and texture are affected. Our special Collagen Regeneration Formula (with Tissue Growth Factors) helps reverse sun damage and promotes “healthy” collagen growth! By blending Palmitoyl Tripeptide-3, a natural growth factor, with other growth factors and wrinkle-smoother ingredients, we created our unique formula. One that can repair environmentally damaged collagen as it helps produce new collagen. Competitor peptide, retinol, and collagen products may help stimulate collagen production, but the new collagen copies the DNA damaged cells creating imperfect collagen replication. It’s because their products do not repair damaged collagen. Reviva’s Collagen Regeneration Cream is distinct because it both repairs damaged cells and stimulates new collagen. So current imperfect collagen is “corrected” and new collagen flourishes. This renewed collagen combination boosts moisture, improves tissue structure, helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and enhances overall skin tone and texture. What’s more, our rich blend of ingredients, including the potent antioxidant CoQ10 helps protect against future damage. Collagen Regeneration Cream can be used alone or “layered” over various anti-aging serums or combined with other anti*aging treatments in your beauty regimen. All this not only means an unprecedented level of wrinkle reduction but a cream that can help repair and restructure  aging skin so that it looks smoother, more moist, resilient, healthier … and younger. It won’t happen overnight, but after 8 weeks, you’ll look at your skin and say … WOW!

 

Directions and ingredients

Apply morning and night. Use OVER serums, gels, or glycolic cream, or UNDER our Alpha Lipoic or other creams.Alternate in 2-week cycles with your current day/night regimen.

Demineralized Spring Water, Glycerin (Veg.), Olive Oil, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-3, Coconut Endosperm, Homeostatine (MarinePentasaccharide & Galactomannan from Tara Fruit), Salicoyl Phytosphingoside, Myristyl Alcohol, COQ-10, Hydrolyzed SoyProtein, Squalane, Soybean Oil, Carbomer 940, Cetearyl Alcohol, Simethicone, Xanthan Gum, Potassium Sorbate, SodiumBenzoate, Citric Acid.

 

Benefits:

Helps improve tissue structure for healthier, younger-looking skin. Increases collagen synthesis to diminish lines or wrinkles. Improves texture and tone of mature skin.

MY THOUGHTS 

I am so amazed at all of the unbelievable information that I was able to read and learn ever since I tried this product. I never really thought about Collagen or how important it was; I most certainly  did not know  that we depend on Collagen ; not only to be beautiful and younger but also to be healthy and “alive” in a sense… If you ever come across a product that triggers your interest in a subject or topic… that is a product worth having .

Not only was I impressed with Reviva Labs Makeup Primer, and face peel…. I am WOWED by this Collagen Regeneration Creme. It’s simply amazing…. I am trying to describe it to you guys in other words, but I really can’t ….IT’S AMAZING.

Please understand, I am a young lady, I don’t have wrinkles or saggy skin… Nevertheless, after using this creme for a couple of weeks I was able to see and feel a big difference on my skin texture, firmness and complexion…..

I also want you to understand; that I am not trying to sell you a product, It is not a pitch, and it is not my job I don’t get paid  for it…I am giving you nothing more than just FACTS.…… If you research the ingredients in this product, and you take some time to read more about collagen and it’s regeneration process; you will find proof without any doubt;  that this product is appropriate and effective for regenerating collagen.

I love it, have no negatives to say about it, I think I will use it forever.

What I loved even more is that I got curious enough to go and do research, I learned so so much.

The Texture is creamy, no smell, smoothing, no shine…

I want to give Reviva Labs a big “thank you ” for letting me try this.

Energizing Gel by Reviva Labs

x

REVIVA LABS – SKIN ENERGIZING GEL

” The gel that makes creams come true”. Yes, you read that correctly!. You may be thinking” it’s just another product review“…. No, it isn’t, it’s not just another review, it’s a special one, because with it comes a story that is very well worth reading. To be honest, I don’t even know where to begin, but here it goes…..

In the past, I prepared a few reviews for Reviva Labs products, so everyone is already pretty familiar with the history of this company, and you also know how much I love and recommend their products. Once again, I was honored with the privilege to try yet another amazing product that comes with more than just skin benefits, but also with a brilliant story; a story that reflects friendship, admiration and partnership.

I was going to begin by telling you guys about the product and the effects on the skin, but I think you all will appreciate it more if you know the story behind it. Throughout this story I will quote parts of the original text.

It all began in 1981, 7 years before I was born, Reviva Labs at this time introduced the first topical trace mineral product to the cosmetic marketplace, most of the product distributions was only at Health Food Stores and the product was named ” Gel Simulator”

One day, Mr. Stephen Strassler, President and Founder of Reviva Labs, received a phone call from Dr. Max Huber, brilliant scientist and developer of LaMer.

His call was to discuss minerals and special process he had developed for a skin cream that could heal as wellAnd the special process, he skin aging. He called it ” Creme De La Mer”, and has testimonials from doctors and consumers who lavished praise about what the cream’s ” Electrical Charge” had done to their skin.

Mr. Strassler said: His production method, special sea kelp bacteria and ingredient mixture was so complex, all I could do was wish him luck and introduce him to Betty Franklin a feature writer for Let’s Live Magazine.

Then Max passed away and his daughter ended up selling to Estee Lauder, LaMier sales now at about $275.00 a jar. Since then, the question remains whether or not the magic formula prepared by Max is what Esteer Lauder still produces.

This story that Mr. Strassler, and Anna Sanna from Reviva Labs shared with me, is not to say that Reviva’s ” Skin Energizing Gel” is the same as LaMier. But, was a work that was specially developed and designed for your skin, and it shares a very special piece of history with Mr. Max and his genius formula.

There is so much more of this story to share, and I would love to share it all with you, but that would mean that I would have to type all the amazing letters that were shared between the parties, but that would take too much time to type, and I think the letters that were shared with me are special and I would like to be a bit selfish as far as those are concerned.

What I will tell you though is that during that time, friendships were made and unbreakable bonds as well… At least that was my impression.

As skin ages and loses minerals, it may lose its ability to absorb the benefits of even the finest night creams. To help your night creams live up to their promise, Reviva offers Skin Energizing Gel, a pure “catalyst” concentrate of mineral- and vitamin-rich Hawaiian Seaplant.

This Gel acts as a supplement, kind of like vitamins.  When applied under your regular cream routine, it allows the skin to absorb better and trap the benefits of your creams and lotions.  I think we have all experienced creams where we think ” OMG it’s a waste of money“, have you  stopped and wondered whether it’s the cream that is a “waste of money ” or if it’s just how your skin is responding to it, or better yet the LACK of skin response.

The Skin Energizing Gel, will make your skin come alive, respond better to your night cream, and absorb it better. You will notice, after a couple of uses how you creams and lotions actually come true…. This is why Reviva Lab’s Gel is known asThe Gel That Makes Creams Come True”. 

I can tell you that it actually works! Because, this product contains and exclusive mixtures of “electrically charges “Trace

Mineral Ions from Hawaii’s powerful ocean tides. They serve as skin activators or “catalysts” that stimulate skin cell energy, a recharging of circulation and mineral balance which quickly improves skin response to active ingredients in beauty creams
