Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews
RéVive Rescue Elixir is not a bad product. I've been using it for over 6 months now and I have seen a lot of improvement, my skin has never been smoother. My problem with it is that it stings at first and then afterwards, leaves your skin red and irritated. It has made me break out quite intensely and the scars are still there as well.
Skin Type:: Oily
May be better for dry skin
Despite having oily skin, I love face oils and just use them sparingly, so I was interested to try a sample of this face oil. I think it may be better for someone with dry skin as I had v shiny residue on my face and no discernible results after its use (but no breakouts or other issues either). As it is very expensive, I would suggest you get a sample of this oil first as for me it did not have any stand out qualities
Recommends this product: Yes
I received a deluxe sample of this and was aware that this brand is highly regarded. My first observation is that this is definitely more balm-like in texture than an oil. I found a small amount went a long way and left my skin well nourished and smooth. I wouldn’t recommend wearing make up over this. Better to use at night or weekend.
Best Use: Hydration, Anti-Aging
Amazing oil but price tag prohibitive
I tried a deluxe sample size of this and was, like others, surprised by the thick balm-like texture. I don’t think the smell is offensive - it didn’t really smell like anything to me, and though it did feel greasy on application and seem to take a while to absorb, the effects have been great. I’ve been exercising a lot outdoors in winter and was expecting my skin to be unhappy, but thanks to this and other products in my routine, my skin has stayed plump, moisturised, smooth and if not for the price tag I’d seriously consider getting this. I would spend this much on an oil though.
Best Use: Hydration, Loss of Firmness, Fine Lines, Brightening, Anti-Aging
Skin Type:: Normal / Balanced
Greasy and sticky
I was really excited to have received a 5ml deluxe sample of this. I read the description and ingredients and thought it sounded like a pretty simple noiushing oil that would be perfect for an evening routine. The ingredients are mainly nourishing so I applied it in the evening after my active serums. What I didn't expect was the thick petoleum jelly-esq texture of the "oil". The texture was too thick and it felt greasy and sticky on the skin. I did not enjoy using it at all and was horrified at the price tag. I also did not enjoy the smell which a previous reviewer descibed as "gone off vegetable oil" - a comment I unfortunately agree with.
Best Use: Anti-Aging
