I’m pretty sure I am not alone in this, but for me, winter weather equals dry skin. I’ve read so much about the benefits of hyaluronic acid in helping solve dry skin issues that I set out to try it. One of the products that I have been using since the weather has become colder is the Reviva Labs Hyaluronic Acid Serum. In fact, I mentioned it in my youtube video where I shared my evening skincare routine (here).
What is hyaluronic acid serum (source Reviva Labs)?
Other than sun damage, nothing accelerates skin aging like water loss. For skin that needs moisture, there isn’t a more potent ingredient than Hyaluronic Acid. This high-potency serum plumps up skin with moisture to reduce lines or wrinkles.
Aestheticians have stated this serum is the closest a cosmetic comes to a dermatologist injection of Restylane (hyaluronic acid). Excellent by itself or under other creams.
I love the results I’m experiencing after using the serum for a few months. The Reviva Labs Hyaluronic Acid Serum lives up to its claims of plumping up my skin and adding moisture. After using the Reviva Labs Hyaluronic Acid Serum at night and upon waking up in the morning my skin is less dry, and I feel like it looks and feels more youthful. Maybe that’s why my two year old tells me “Mommy, you look like a little girl.”.:LOL:.
I use the Reviva Labs Hyaluronic Acid Serum at night after cleansing and toning my face with my Mario Badescu Facial Spray. I let it dry, and then apply my Embryolisse moisturizer over it. At one point I was using the Reviva Labs DMAE cream, which together, work extremely well in helping my skin retain moisture, as well as keep is smooth and supple. However, I had to stop using it once I realized it contained Retinol/Retin-A since I’m TTC. Shame on me for not thoroughly reading the ingredients list!
15-Minute Beauty has a great list of ingredients in skincare to avoid. I’ve also written about over on Beauty and the Bump.
I had an incident after using a mask that, in turn, broke my skin out and created dry patches. The Reviva Labs Hyaluronic Acid Serum really impressed me how it cleared up everything in just a few days.
I have one note of caution – it’s easy to pump out a lot of the Reviva Labs Hyaluronic Acid Serum, so be sure to use a light hand when trying to get out the product because too much of the Reviva Labs Hyaluronic Acid Serum can lead to too much product on the skin, and if you’re using the serum during the day, you will probably notice that it pills up. Who wants to walk around with little white balls all over their face? That is not cute!
Would I recommend the Reviva Labs Hyaluronic Acid Serum?
I would definitely recommend purchasing the Reviva Labs Hyaluronic Acid Serum if you suffer from dry skin. The Reviva Labs Hyaluronic Acid Serum costs $22 for 1 oz compared to the Peter Thomas Roth VIZ-1000™ 75 percent Hyaluronic Acid Complex that’s on my wish list, and retails for $65.
Now, if only I can find a good night cream.
