I’m an eye cream freak. Since the day I turned 40 I have been turned out on eye cream. At that day in time, I decided that I would never have a wrinkle around my eyes, and to date I don’t. All hail to the power of eye cream!
My latest eye cream love is from Reviva Labs — a brand that I seem to be having a love affair with…
Here are the deets on Reviva Labs DMAE & Lipoic Acid & Vitamin C Ester Firming Eye Serum:
- DMAE, Alpha Lipoic Acid & Wheat Protein help firm & fight bags, puffiness.
- Alpha Lipoic Acid & Vitamin C Ester antioxidants help protect against future damage.
- Mulberry & Lime help lighten dark circles.
- Hyaluronic Acid & Allantoin, in a unique blending moisturize & texturize area.
Why I love it:
My first reason for loving Reviva Labs DMAE & Lipoic Acid & Vitamin C Ester Firming Eye Serum is that it’s a “safe” product — it’s free of bad-for-you ingredients. Second reason, I can apply this eye serum around my eyelid, top and bottom. This is huge for me, as I have hooded eyelids upon which gravity is taking it’s toll. So, the ability to use an eye on my upper lid is a huge plus for me.
Upon application, this eye serum de-puffs and makes the under eye area look brightened. Long-term, darkness is decreased and there is a firming action. Maybe it’s my imagination, but every time I apply Reviva Labs DMAE & Lipoic Acid & Vitamin C Ester Firming Eye Serum, it feels like it is tightening on contact. I love that. My upper eyelids have been “lifted” if you will. The firming action of DMAE & Lipoic Acid have definitely done their job.
While it is not an eye cream, only a serum, I do not apply more eye cream for day. I allow my concealer do to that job. I do, however, layer an eye cream at night for added moisture.

I know that some may look at the price and doubt the efficacy– well, don’t. Reviva Labs has been supplying the professional skin care industry for years and contains the highest level of ingredients. Since they do not rely on fancy packaging and marketing, they are able to provide a quality product at an accessible price!
Bonus — this serum is so lightweight, that it goes right into the skin without leaving a film and allows for easy application of makeup. I use it on my clients too before makeup application.
