Apothecary: Reviva Labs Skin Energizing Gel

Hello ladies,

Today I want to share information about a product that amplifies the effectiveness of nighttime moisturizers. Reviva Labs Skin Energizing Gel helps stimulate skin cells to better absorb the active ingredients in night creams. It's such a useful product to assist in combatting dry skin.

A pink peony. These flowers make me think of silk ruffles over a hoop skirt. Peonies are Nature's way of throwing a costume ball or grand fete.

Skin creams are better absorbed when applied over a gel formula. With age, skin can become resistant to utilizing emollient ingredients. The driest skin can even have trouble receiving moisture from creams, even with quality components. I won't dispute the science, but I maintain that I was born resistant to moisture. I have had a rotating collection of moisturizers since age ten.

Skin Reviving Gel gives me the freedom to use lighter weight moisturizers with the same affect as a heavy night cream. Heading into the summer months, I am so thankful for this product. I have been applying it under Reviva Labs Soy Rejuvenating Serum and EFAs Cream.

The primary effective ingredient is Hawaiian seaplant, a type of algae extract. This component contains trace ocean minerals that activate skin cells and boost circulation. I have been using Skin Reviving Gel on my face and neck. It also can be used in the eye area. It's even recommended as a treatment under cuticle creams to help with moisture delivery. I will certainly be using it for that purpose during the winter months.

I can attest that my skin has been smoother and fuller since using Skin Reviving Gel over the past few weeks. I will be looking at this product when I open up my medicine cabinet for years to come. I highly recommend it.

Reviva Labs Skin Energizing Gel was sent to me for review. This product can be purchased from and I requested to have Skin Energizing Gel included in the His & Hers Giveaway because I wanted to offer a readers a chance to win a full bottle of this fantastic product. Check out the contest post for details.

Happy painting, ladies!


  1. Thanks for the reviews on these products. I've always wondered how they moisturized. The peony is so beautiful. I've always seen the same thing when I look at those flowers. A beautiful lady waltzing in her hoop skirt.

  2. Lucy: I am so glad you are enjoying the reviews! I am happy to offer the information. Reviva Labs products offer such specific treatments. I am glad to test them and provide a reference.

    It's so nice we envision peonies in the same way. xoxo!

  3. This sounds awesome! I never knew that creams are better absorbed when applied over gels, I'll have to keep that in mind :O
