“Sun damage is cumulative over a lifetime,” says Dr. Gregory Bays Brown, founder of RéVive. “It’s crucial to protect your skin all the time, no matter what the season or your age, and always use products with an SPF.”
As someone who has already had melanoma and plenty of sun exposure, I couldn’t agree more. Protecting your skin and moisturizing it daily is a must not only in the summer but everyday. Even cloudy conditions call for sunscreen.
So I gave RéVive Intensité Crème Lustre Day a try. It is pricy at $375, but: it was light, very hydrating and it smells wonderful on the skin. Applying makeup over it was like having used a primer. My makeup glided on.
Again, as a person who doesn’t like to splurge, it does last a long time so it’s worth considering. You only need a bit to go a long way. I have sensitive skin and the cream didn’t cause any breakouts.
The claim: Ultimate multi-tasker. Intensité Crème Lustre Day has anti-aging benefits. Its SPF 30 protects against UVB/UVA rays. Intensely moisturizes to increase skin’s elasticity, firmness and also lightens the skin.
For dry to very dry skins. Although I have combination skin, it was just right for me.
