23 Aug RéVive Fermatif Neck Renewal Cream (SPF15). £100 for a neck cream! Is it worth it?
What is it? RéVive Fermatif Neck Renewal Cream (SPF15) is a rose-scented cream and sunscreen containing state-of-the-art RES (Renewal Epidermal Science) technology: a collection of unique molecules inspired by the proteins we produce naturally which help to promote the regeneration of new skin cells and reduce the visible signs of aging. It contains SPF15 to protect skin against the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Who is it for? Suitable for all skin types, however, the cream has a strong rosy scent which may be too perfumed for some.
How do you use it? Smooth over your neck and décolleté after cleansing and toning. Follow with your usual face care routine, am and pm.
What’s the damage? £100 for 75ml
I’ve been using the RéVive neck cream for 3 months now. It’s a very expensive cream but I wasn’t happy with how my neck looked on some holiday photos, so I bit the bullet and bought this in Space NK. I really shouldn’t be allowed in Space NK as there’s just something about the shop that I really like and I usually end up spending more than I intended. I prefer small spaces to massive department stores and the girls/ladies who work in our local branch are lovely.
RéVive is a luxury skincare line developed by Dr. Gregory Bays Brown, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon, and inspired by patented and Nobel Prize winning science. It features a collection of special bio-engineered skin-identical proteins that mimic your own bio-renewal process to help skin to behave at a more youthful rate. Sounds impressive but does it work?
First of all, I have no problem with the scent which apparently is quite strong. My sense of smell is rubbish and I can barely smell the cream. I do sometimes worry that people are fainting in the street as I go past because I’ve got so many scents on that I can’t smell, but are overpowering everyone else! The cream feels very luxurious, it’s not at all greasy and rubs in really well (so it should for the price) and obviously an SPF is always a good idea.
As to results, I’m not sure that it’s made a lot of difference. I think my skin feels slightly firmer but I haven’t noticed enough of a difference to repurchase.
