What does it do?
_    "(5% Glycolic Acid) An advanced glycolic acid (from sugar cane) that has been acclaimed for action on sun damaged skin and for improving skin texture. 100% natural. With unique glycolic polymer, used by professionals. No animal ingredients. No animal testing. Made in USA."

     Reviva Labs has sent over this cream along with the Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream. Which is great because I use them together nightly. This particular cream you apply before bed for the first four weeks. leave-on for one minute and then apply a light moisturizer. After one month of nighttime applications, also apply in the morning under daytime moisturizer.
    At first it sounds absolutely crazy to put acids on your skin, doesn't it?! Well I know the first time I heard about it I questioned it as if "Who would test that out!!?" Well, thanks to whoever did because now peoples skin texture, acne, wrinkles and such have improved with this ingredient. I have talked with my esthetician and she swears by anyone with acne or breakouts to use products that contain glycolic acid.
This cream has a nice thick consistency!
     I love the thicker consistency of this cream because when I apply it at night I can feel that it leaves my skin super soft till morning and has time to penetrate all layers of the skin.  It does have a slight stinging feel, but that's if you have any open pimples or areas on your face where it was just exfoliated. It doesn't hurt but more so just a little annoying but goes away quickly. Me personally, I like the stinging because it feels like it's working. They do have the same product with 10% glycolic acid in it but I would not recommend starting off with that because you want to test your skin with the lower amount first.
    Overall, yes this is meant for mature skin and I'm only 24, but it's better to start younger! This cream has made my skin baby soft and evened out my skin tone a little. When I do get a pimple I make sure I apply this and it heals up quicker than it would on it own and prevented any kind of scarring and it's 100% natural!

Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream

This cream has a light lotion consistency
    Well that's a mouth full of a name! Anyways, what does it do? "Reviva Labs now offers a new answer to helping firm, tighten and "lift" skin with DMAE...as Alpha Lipoic Acid and Vitamin C Ester fight free radicals and future skin aging. As a special Reviva boost, this dramatic trio is encased in a soy liposome for deeper, time release action during the night. Allantoin and Aloe Vera are added to soothe and calm stressed skin, contributing to a healthy, vibrant glow. For supple, more youthful looking skin, it's another major advance in the battle against skin aging. Benefits: helps improve skin tone and glow as its powerful antioxidant action fights free-radical damage. As your body rests during the night, you have hours of uninterrupted replenishing nutrients that help tighten and "lift" skin to treat the effects of time as it helps fight future skin aging."
   When I look for a a great cream I want it to hydrate my skin for the majority of the day, replenish all that was lost from drying cleansers, toners etc. But I don't want to feel like I have a layer of cream on under my makeup, so I also want it to be light! To my surprise this cream met my requirements!!  In the photo above you can see it's not as thick as the Glycolic Acid Cream.
     I Actually use this product a minute after applying the first cream. This helps stop any stinging that may have occurred from the acid and this absorbs so fast into my skin and gets right to work! I do  use this at night like directed to give it time to really soak in and sometimes just because I like the hydration my skin gets, I'll apply a little more in the morning (it's not oily either!!). The only thing I haven't noticed is any firming of my skin. I also am 24 and don't quite need that yet, but I'm sure using this now will benefit me later.
   You get a 2 oz. jar that honestly will last you quite some time! A little goes a long way and I love that! You really get your moneys worth and results that will get you compliments. Ever since I have used this when I am working and making suggestions for foundations and such, I get more compliments on my skin than ever. They ask what makeup I use for such even healthy looking skin... and the thing is, it's mostly on the days where I just have a light tinted moisturizer on. The real secret is taking care of your skin with the right products and not covering them with makeup. I point them to these two products.

2 oz. jar is only $23
