Hello beautiful readers. I'm back with yet another review.
I was contacted by a customer service rep about trying a Reviva Labs product. After researching the company and visiting their website, I came to the conclusion that I wanted to try their non-chemical light skin peel. I love exfoliation and I'm always looking to try something new. However, there is a such thing as too much exfoliating, so don't over do it!
Anyway, upon opening the product I realized the look of it isn't the most attractive. It's thick like a paste with a grittiness to it. The smell isn't the most pleasant because the thyme oil is really strong.
Here's a description of the peel from Reviva Labs:
"Peeling" is a European term for one of the most unique European items in the entire cosmetic field. THIS IS NOT A HARSH CHEMICAL PEEL. It doesn't "peel skin" as we know it, but gently lifts off more hardened, dried skin cells than can be achieved by scrubs or any other "exfoliating" product. Dead-cell accumulation prevents treatment products from penetrating and keeps skin tone from looking fresh and vibrant. For aging and problem skin, PEEL is absolutely vital; it offers multiple benefits, which one can see and feel with just one application. Used by Europe's top Skin Treatment Specialists as a supplementary cleansing step in any skin care program. Any skin type, any age, can benefit from a once-a-week "Peel". Our Peel ingredients also stimulate the deeper new cells to move upward at a faster rate - causing the skin surface to look tighter, clearer and healthier.
After it had dried and I peeled a small part.
1. Apply it lightly over your face, once a week.
2. Let it dry for 3-5 minutes.
3. When fully dry, rub it off with your fingers or a towel.

+ Tone of my skin appeared brighter.
+ Softened my skin.
+ Has great ingredients.
- The smell. This product would really be a winner if the smell was more pleasant.
- Removing the product with your fingers can be really messy.
All in all, I'd say is it is a good exfoliation. It's great for those who like to feel like their product is doing something. However the smell is not my cup of tea.
You may purchase this product here. It is available in 1.5 oz and it retails for $20 USD.
