About a month ago, I vowed to myself that I would take my skincare more seriously. Before turning 25, I had always told myself that once I got to my mid-twenties, skin care would have to become a bigger priority. It was officially time to research the products I used rather than just popping into the drugstore and hoping a product would work for me.
I have always maintained a skincare routine to avoid clogged pores and blemishes, but it wasn’t until this year that I began to really think of the long-term of my skincare and beauty routine. The fact is, there are some things I haven’t been as vigilant about when it comes to my skincare, such as wearing a daily sunscreen, or understanding the benefits of Glycolic Acid. On my hunt to find the best skincare I found Reversa, and today I am sharing a few of my new skincare discoveries, and sharing my full thoughts and honest review of Reversa Skincare!
Reversa Skincare all contains Glycolic Acid which is known to smooth skin, improve texture, unclog pores, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and improve the look of sun damaged skin. A few of these points really stood out to me as I reviewed the benefits of Glycolic Acid. One being unclogged clean pores, another being the improved texture and smoother appearing skin. But the most important one to me was the improved look of sun damaged skin, as I do have some obvious sun damage.
My issue with sun damage began when I was quite little. I went on a road trip with my friend and her family around the United States. Being a little kid, I didn’t care much about putting on sunscreen and that resulted in me getting some pretty severe sun burns over the trip. When I got back home, I was more tanned than I had been (or have since) in my life and my mum was very concerned. I had little white freckles on my shoulders which my doctor let me know was the beginning of sun damage. Those freckles have never gone away, and it’s part of the reason why today I am so vigilant about applying sunscreen.
The Reversa Anti-Wrinkle Cream with SPF 30 has quickly become one of my favourite products. I’ve been applying it every morning before heading off to work to ward off wrinkles as well as protect my skin from the sun’s harmful rays. I hadn’t known this until recently, but even the lights in our offices and homes can emit some harmful rays, so applying a sun protectant whether you’re inside or outside during your day is important.
The biggest issue I’ve had with using a liquid or cream SPF has always been that they at times have left my skin feeling tacky or oily, but I was really please to find that Reversa Anti-Wrinkle Cream left my skin feeling soft and dry. While it did take a few minutes to absorb into my skin, I didn’t have that oily feeling throughout the day that some sunscreens leave.
Another product I have been using from Reversa is their Reversa Antioxidant Booster Serum which is supposed to also protect your skin from the sun, as well as also shielding it from toxins such as cigarette smoke and pollution. I absolutely adore this product and have been using it each morning and evening after cleansing my skin. Living in the city, I have always felt that at the end of the day my skin feels a bit heavy with the pollution of the city. I love that there is a product available to help protect my skin from that pollution since it is so unavoidable with my daily life. The Reversa Antioxidant Booster Serum is very light weight and makes my skin feel so healthy and refreshed.
The final product I have been using has been the Reversa Skin Smoothing Body Lotion. I’ve always found that people focus on their face care but forget about their body, and to me – body care is essential. My elbows, knees, hands, and legs often feel dry during the winter months and it’s important for me to be able to sooth those issues. The Reversa Skin Smoothing Body Lotion contains 10% Glycolic Acid (which is the highest you can have without a dermatologist prescription!) which promotes new cell growth and natural exfoliation to create healthy, softer, and smoother skin. This body lotion immediately made my skin feel softer and smoother, and now with continued use I have found that my dry hands are completely soft, my legs feel smoother, and my elbows finally are feeling softer.
