Product Review: Reviva Labs Makeup Primer
Brand: Reviva Labs
Name: : Makeup Primer
Size: 29.5 ml / 1 fl oz
Price: approx. $19.50 USD
From Reviva’s website: "Apply over moisturizer or instead of moisturizer. Lines fill in, pores are concealed, excess oil is controlled. Skin so touchable, so silky smooth, you will find it hard to believe.
Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol), Olive Oil, Coenzyme Q10, Squalane."
To Purr About:
- glides on to skin very easily
- leaves skin feeling extremely smooth and silky
- slightly minimizes the look of wrinkles and pores
- creates a nice finish on the skin that allows for easy makeup application (I use mineral makeup)
- is efficient even without moisturizer
- no scent
- a little goes a long way
- extends life of makeup
- might feel a bit heavy/greasy if you have oily skin
Having a good base to start your beauty regiment is very important, which is why I’ve recently decided to to try some new makeup primers. I do suffer from things such as: dry skin, enlarged pores, acne scars, small wrinkles and skin imperfections, so a good makeup primer is pretty important.
The moment I applied Reviva’s Makeup Primer for the first time I was pretty blown away. The texture is so silky and smooth. At first it seemed a bit heavy on my skin and greasy on my fingers, but it very quickly absorbed in to my skin and created a nice finish to my skin ready for makeup application. Although I could still see pores, I did notice some of my wrinkles were now minimized.
I was impressed that even after a long work day my skin still felt soft and supple as a result of using this product. I really do love the way this product makes my skin feel. I don’t even have to use moisturizer any more and my skin feels great. I do notice my makeup lasts longer and is still there when I get home from work.
I would have preferred this product hide my pores and imperfections even more, but for this affordable price I think it does a great job.
