I am fortunate to work with Reviva Labs.

I took this picture from my Instagram. I already reviewed Reviva Labs DMAE Firming Fluid. For this post, I will review the cream on the left.
Product Review: Reviva Labs Nourishing Cream (EFA)

Where to purchase: ULTA, Sprouts, Whole Foods, and online at revivalabs.com
Price: $25 for 1.5 oz/ 42 g

Made in USA

Description from the package: Omega-3 and Omega-6 oils are called ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS because they are essential for facial skin to be its healthiest. The radiance and fullness you see in those with attractive skin has a lot to do with natural lipids (EFA's) one gets from foods - and can also get from topical EFA creams.

For healthier cell membranes, Reviva Labs has developed a unique complex of 10 oils rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. What's more, they're supported by elements that help create a moisture-balanced, fuller, smoother look and feel to face and hands.

Combine a.m. and p.m. use of this cream with internal consumption of EFA's via food supplements. EFA's inside and outside may be the missing link for your skin to look its best.

Thoughts: Whenever I get a chance to use Reviva Labs (I don't get around much because I have so many products), I get excited. I've always had good experience.
Here's how it looks when opened.
Here's a swatch of the product on my hand.
One thing I love about Reviva Labs is that they also put the expiration date on the container. Most products put on the box and that's it. I don't know if you're like me, but I throw my box away as soon as I use the product. For that reason, I usually don't know the expiration date of my products. It's nice to see it on the container.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's a slight scent when I first started applying the product. Now I'm so used to the product that I don't even notice. I just sniffed the product and it smells like plant-based. I cannot pinpoint the smell but it's really refreshing. Secondly, the consistency is medium. It's not thick that it takes a long time to sink into the skin. It's also not thin that it's liquidity like a lotion. It's a great consistency and all skin types from dry to oily can use. It's easy to use and sinks into the skin quickly. It leaves a nice, smooth texture. Third, it's extremely hydrating. My dry skin suck up the product and made it look youthful. Any hydration I can get is a huge plus all year around. This has come in hand when I was sick for over a month. I had a makeup artist tell me she has never seen a skin this dry and that I should go see a doctor. If it wasn't for this product and other, my skin wouldn't have improved this fast. Lastly and with usage, any product that hydrates will improve the fine lines. I definitely noticed slight improvements on my fine lines especially around my smile line.

Pros:
* Slight, refreshing scent.
* Travel-friendly.
* Medium consistency.
* Good for all skin types.
* Easy to use.
* Sinks into the skin.
* Hydrating.
* Slight improvement on fine lines.
* Natural products.
* Omega-3 & Omega-6 fatty acids.
* Cruelty-free.

Cons:
* Didn't see improvements on deep lines.

Would repurchase: Yes.
