Those of us who grew up in the 70s used baby oil to fry our skin to a crispy golden colour. Smarter today, we are now left to deal with the damage caused. I have used sunscreen on my face for the past 20 years, so at least I haven’t been adding to the problem.
When I received a bottle of Reversa Anti-Wrinkle Cream SPF 30, I had to give it a try. Reversa uses 8% glycolic acid to repair photodamage, and a full spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 30 to prevent further damage. This unique combination means that you can repair and protect your skin with a single product.
I have never used AHAs before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I hoped it wouldn’t feel harsh, and in my experience, it doesn’t. Reversa feels rich and absorbs quickly. I use two pumps’ worth of product, making sure to cover my face and neck. Reversa contains 0% paraben, oil, volatile silicone and perfume, and is suitable for all skin types.
A 50 ml bottle – available at Canadian drugstores – retails for $45, a bargain by most anti-aging cream standards.
(NOTE: I received a 50 ml bottle of Reversa free of charge from the company for the purposes of a product trial. Opinions are my own. Read the contents to determine if this product is right for you.)
