What Is It
Reviva Labs Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester and DMAE cream is a Super Antioxidant that also helps firm and texturize skin. Reviva was first to blend all three ingredients in the same formula. But why is their formula more effective than others with similar ingredients? It's not only their experience with the proper potencies of each ingredient, it's Reviva's art of blending and deep understanding of product absorption. One writer called this product "a work of art in anti-aging skin care."
Reviva's experience and know-how shows ... on your skin. Alpha Lipoic Acid, super anti-free radical agent, is supplemented by Vitamin C Ester to battle past skin damage as it defends agaisnt future damage. DMAE is the unique firming ingredient. Reviva combines all three in a liposome for deep, time release action through the night. Use at night. Apply lightly over face and throat.
Reviva Labs now offers a new answer to helping firm, tighten and "lift" skin with 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.

 Packaging and Price 
The packaging It comes in a little tub which is not my favorite way to package skin care due to possible contamination, but if you want to avoid that badly enough, you could use a spoon type item or whatever you might use to get product out of the container or if you don't mind by all means scoop it out with your fingers, also I wanna just say that each product does have a label indicating the EXP. Date. The price is a little high for a nightcream, it does retail for $23.00 USD but i think it well worth the price, you gotta rememeber that this product doesn't  have all those bad chemicals that you would typically put all your  face , this is more a all natural organic/vegan mask that is 10x better for your skin so of course you will pay more for something that is natural VS drugstore chemical brands .  

Why It Works 

Let’s break down the chemical content to find out what Reviva Labs Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream can do for you:

  • Alpha Lipoic Acid: an antioxidant that is fat soluble, water soluble, and may help to regenerate other antioxidants. One study by Beitner showed that a cream containing 5% alpha lipoic acid was effective at reducing fine lines in the skin caused by sun damage (Beitner H. Randomized, placebo controlled, double-blind study on the clinical efficacy of a cream containing 5% alpha-lipoic acid related to photoaging of facial skin. Br J Dermatol. 2003;149:841-9.)
  • Vitamin C Ester (Ascorbyl palmitate): an extremely effective antioxidant that is key to collagen synthesis. (Austria R, Semenzato A, Bettero A. Stability of vitamin C derivatives in solution and topical formulations. J Pharm Biomed Anal. 1997;15(6):795-801.)
  • DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol): while the mechanism by which it aids skin appearance is unknown, it can help provide increase firmness, improve facial muscle tone, and perhaps decrease inflammation (Grossman R. The role of dimethylaminoethanol in cosmetic dermatology. Am J Clin Dermatol. 2005 ;6(1):39-47.)

My Thoughts- Being I'm 23 years old, I don't need any "extreme" lifting,/wrinkle cream but I what I expect out of a good cream is for it to even out my skin tone as well as skin texture, keep my skin hydrated and repair any moisture loss from using any harsh cleansers or exfoliates and make my skin soft to the touch. Is that all too much to ask?! This particular cream is best when used at night to I've your skin several hours to drink up all of the good vitamins and repair your skin. For nighttime, I prefer a product that's a bit heavier than a day cream, but isn't too greasy where it will leave my pillow an oil slick. This particular cream is really light and fluffy - it's not heavy or oily. Once applied to the skin, the texture is incredibly silky and creamy. It doesn't leave the skin shiny, greasy or tacky. It feels a little moist for about a minute and then it almost completely absorbs. My skin type is normal to combination, but at times I can have a little dryness due to harsh cleansers, exfoliates or even the weather. This cream always fixes that by the morning. I'm always excited to look at my face every morning to see how radiant my skin is. The results when using this is always consistent. I wake up with baby soft skin, an even complexion and a glow from within. With most creams, the full benefits can be seen when used after your skin has been exfoliated to soak up all of the ingredients to the fullest.
