Reviva Labs Essential Fatty Acid (EFAs) Cream Review
We already know that essential fatty acid (omega fat) is good for us. Recently I came across a few brands that incorporate this into their skin care. Reviva Labs EFAs Cream contains a blend of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids derived from plants that will benefit those with already thin skin or use as a preventative measure.
Price: $25/1.5oz jar
Pros: The ingredients list is lovely; it has aloe vera and green tea for soothing and different type of oils such as rosehip, olive oil, and more for anti-oxidants. What I love about this cream is the texture. It is very creamy yet absorb so well and there is no greasy residue. In the morning, my face just feels so soft, smooth and radiant. As always, I don’t normally start writing review for skin care until I use it for 4 weeks or more and during this period, I didn’t experience any breakout and irritation from using this. I also did not layer it with any other serum or moisturizer to get a true feel of the product.
Cons: Nothing from me. I know that some people might be objectionable to the jar packaging but consider how thick it is, I don’t think they can package it any other way.
Overall: I cannot testify for how well this cream works on improving thin skin. I probably have not use it long enough plus, I don’t even know how to measure something like that. What I do know is that I love the beneficial ingredients and how soft and smooth it makes my skin feel. I just look healthier in the morning. Rating: 4.5/5
