Reviva Labs: DMAE & Alpha Lipoic Acid & Vitamin C Ester Firming Eye Serum

Hello ladies,

For the past few months, I have been using an eye treatment product from Reviva Labs: DMAE & Alpha Lipoic Acid & Vitamin C Ester Firming Eye Serum. This product provides the best lifting action I have experienced with an eye serum. It also does a remarkable job of keeping my eye area looking refreshed. If you aren't getting enough sleep, this serum offers a masquerade in a bottle.

When discussing eye treatment products with a friend of mine who is very particular about her skin care regimen, she asked me what I was using. The next day she e-mailed me about purchasing Firming Eye Serum.

I apply the product on my upper and lower eye area every night before bed. I find that a medium layer works best. The directions mention using gentle tapping motions during application. I used to suffer from migraines, so I skipped this step. I found adding a little more product and delicately massaging it in proved favorable.

I noticed immediate improvement in the areas above the crease and directly below the eyebrow. The lifting action was visible within the first few days of use. I'll admit I didn't even realize I was experiencing minor puffiness beneath the lower lash line until Firming Eye Serum took away all evidence.

Firming Eye Serum also works to minimize dark circles. If your schedule is preventing you from maintaining a proper sleep cycle, this product is the best way I have found to mimic the look of being rested. I recommended it to a client of mine who is a new mother.

It also helps ease the appearance of fine lines. I see the greatest effect on lines when I use the serum twice a day rather than once before bed. While this product's ability to provide lift, minimize puffiness and under eye circles was almost immediate, the wrinkle reduction was cumulative in my case. I saw a visible change within a couple of weeks with continued reduction of fine lines during the first month.

Ingredients: Demineralized Spring Water, Olive Oil, Cyclomethicone, Whole Wheat Protein, DMAE Bitartrate, Mulberry Extract, Lime Extract, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Hyaluronic Acid, Allantoin, Xantham Gum, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ceteareth 20, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid.

DMAE is one of my favorite skin care ingredients. By stimulating the muscles, it provides lifting action and helps prevent sagging.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is utilized in skin care as a potent antioxidant. Because it is soluble in water and oil, alpha lipoic acid can enter more areas of a cell. This is an auspicious quality in helping heal the skin from free radical damage, including fine lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin C Ester (Ascorbyl Palmitate) is a useful component for helping to prevent free radical damage and repair its harmful effects, showing on the skin as fine lines and age spots. A special form of Vitamin C that easily penetrates the skin , Vitamin C Ester can help protect cells from environmental factors such as pollution.

If you are looking for a multi-purpose eye treatment that can help with lifting action, reducing puffiness and dark circles while minimizing fine lines, Firming Eye Serum will deliver.
