Quick Skincare Reviews: Reviva Labs Hawaiian Seaweed Day Cream, Elastin & DMAE Night Cream

Two more reviews from Reviva Labs! The creams were definitely must better than the serums and I would recommend both creams for people with a need for extra hydration on a budget.

Left: Hawaiian Seaweed Day Cream; Right: Elastin & DMAE Night Cream

Reviva Labs Hawaiian Seaweed Day Cream

  • What they claim (from Revivalabs.com): Uses the marvelous ability of mineral rich seaweed to help revitalize skin to stay fresh and silky.
  • Texture: Dense whipped cream, a little hard to smooth around and massage in the skin, so need to use a little more than usual. Takes some time to fully absorb.
  • Effect: Provides good surface (temporary) hydration. I didn’t notice any changes to my skin in the long term.
  • Price: $14 for 1.5oz (45mL)
  • Overall: This is a good basic moisturizer for normal to dry skin. It says it is suitable for all skin types, but I feel it might be a little too oily/rich for people with oily or combination skin. It takes a while to absorb and my skin feels slightly tight even after I’ve applied it. I would recommend it if you are on a budget and want a basic moisturizer without frills.
Reviva Labs Elastin & DMAE Night Cream (tested by my mum)
  • What they claim (from Revivalabs.com): The original high potency elastin in America with DMAE now added for even better firming action. With Albumin for faster firming results. Ten times the amino acid content of other Elastin Creams. Ten times the potency to aid skin firmness, throat sag and wrinkles.
  • Texture: Dense whipped cream, absorbs easily, not as easy to spread around so needs to use more
  • Effect: Along with the Collagen Serum, my mum said she noticed her skin was smoother and plumper in the morning
  • Price: $14 for 1.5oz (45mL)
  • Overall: My mum likes this cream as it gives her a good level of hydration and makes her skin smoother by the morning. This is perfect for more mature skin as it is rich enough and has all the good nutrients in it (see ingredients below). The price is also very good as it is affordable but you still get a good quantity that should last you a while.

  1. Great reviews as always 🙂 I’ve seen a lot of skincare that has the witch hazel extract. It’s interesting because I’ve never heard of it before. These creams sound fantastic and I’m keen on hydration levels during the day. 🙂

I'd love to hear your thoughts and comments!
