RevaleSkin Night Cream is marketed as an anti-aging moisturizer. It contains antioxidants that protect against early signs of aging, but so do many less expensive formulas -- including Olay Regenerist UV Defense Regenerating Lotion SPF 15 (*Est. $22 for 2.5 oz.).
Well formulated but not one-of-a-kind. InStyle and Allure magazines praise the potent coffee berry extract found in RevaleSkin Night Cream. Experts point to research showing it to be among the most powerful of antioxidants, which help to fight the signs of aging. Paula Begoun says there are far too many antioxidants available, however, to know which is most powerful. She says that while the formula contains "an intriguing mix of lightweight emollients and water-binding agents," there are plenty of less pricey moisturizers that "treat skin to a cocktail of antioxidants rather than a main attraction and co-star."
Some users at MakeupAlley.com say RevaleSkin evens skin tone and reduces the appearance of pores, but most say it is too expensive.
Lightweight and fragrance-free. Reviewers praise RevaleSkin's light weight and silky feel. Most say the fragrance-free formula is easily absorbed into the skin.
Review Credibility: Excellent Although Paula Begoun rates RevaleSkin Night Cream as a "good" facial moisturizer with some excellent ingredients, she says that it isn't worth the cost and that plenty of budget-friendly moisturizers have more antioxidant content.
