I’m always on the hunt for the latest and greatest anti-aging treatments. For a while, I’ve been hearing about the wonderful things Revaleskin products—packed with super-potent antioxidant powers, thanks to their star ingredient, CoffeeBerry extract—can do for an aging complexion. So you can imagine how excited I was when I got the opportunity to give a couple of their best-sellers a try!
First up was Revaleskin Intense Recovery Therapy. While this one does contain emollients, it definitely falls into the “serum” category and, in the case of drier skin like mine, needs a good moisturizer with which to work in tandem. But enough about that—on to the fun stuff! First of all, I’m not sure what I imagined CoffeeBerry Extract to smell like, but guess what? It smells like coffee. The kind of rich, delicious specialty espresso I treat myself to every Saturday morning! I don’t know about you, but I love that smell. And yes, the product still feels very clean and absorbs completely. I’ve been using it morning and night and have noticed my skin looks fresher and more awake. Even better, I know that my SPF has support in protecting my skin from the sun. As so many dermatologists have stated, the long-term benefits of this antioxidant product are invaluable.
The second Revaleskin product I was able to check out? Illuminesse Brightening Complex, a hydroquinone-free brightener. What I really love about this one is the fact it contains lactic acid and vitamins A and C, along with Revaleskin’s signature CoffeeBerry Extract complex. The vitamin A and lactic acid are great for their resurfacing properties, while the vitamin C is great when it comes to preventing new age spots. As is the case with the Intense Recovery Therapy, the CoffeeBerry extract offers antioxidant power that’s better than that of green tea or pomegranate! Combined with the use of SPF 60 on my face every day, this product has kept my complexion spot-free.
