Reviva Labs 5% Glycolic Acid Renaissance Cream -- 1.5 oz
Didn't work for me
I saw so many great reviews on this product that I had to give it a try. Unfortunately it made no difference to me. Used it as suggested, been about a month now & no difference at all. I was hoping it would help with the texture of my skin but nothing..maybe I need the 10%??
Again, it didn't work for me but still think it was worth giving it a try

does what it says
I like it and will repurchase. You need to know what you are doing when you use this product (like protein conditioners). This is sort of the same. I personally had to rub all of the dead skin off a couple of days after using this twice. I licked my finger to get the right viscosity and rubbed my face while watching tv. Yeah, that sounds gross, but it is true. Next time, I will use a fine scrub. If you do not remove the dead skin, it will sit there making you look wrinkled. Underneath is fresher skin.

Initially I was skeptical about this product because typically the more popular a product, the less likely it is to actually work for me. But I can honestly say, I was worried for nothing. I have dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin with clogged pores that I struggle to maintain. Usually a product will either be so strong it burns and irritates my skin and worsens my acne, or its too weak and does absolutely nothing. I use this cream as my only method of exfloliation (no washcloths, brushes, peels, or scrubs) and it has totally replaced my entire 3-step night time routine (Aloe Vera Gel, Tamanu Oil, Carrot Seed Oil). I just wash with a gentle cleanser at night, pat my skin dry, and apply a thin layer of this to my problem areas. For me, there was no stinging sensation until the third night of application so I'll try to spread it out to every other night until my skin becomes readjusted. I've used this product for less than a week and it has completely transformed by complexion. I now have very few acne bumps, fading scars, and clearer complexion. This product doesn't prevent breakouts BUT it clears them up quickly. Although the jar is small, a little goes a long way. I expect this to last me for at least three months. One word of caution that I do have is that it takes awhile for me to rub it in, but other than that this is an excellent product!

This cream makes my skin immediately smoother, with a rosy glow in my cheeks (it could be the slight stinging sensation, though). I like that it's all natural too! After I finish the this container I'm stepping up to the 10%. *Be warned: make sure you use with the toner or else you'll really be stinging!

I liked this product very much. It is improving the overall texture and tone of my skin. I have normal-oily skin and it didn't make it oiler or make me break out. I think I could have gone with the 10% right away since I had no irritation with this one. I will order again.
