When you reach your 30’s your skin enters a whole new ‘phase’ of life. Your face doesn’t have that same natural ‘glow’ it had in your 20’s. It’s duller and fine lines have already found a new home around your eyes and mouth. The Collagen and elastin in your skin is getting weaker. Basically getting older sucks. There’s no two ways about it. Men become dapper, distinguished and sometimes even more handsome as they age, whereas we become more and more like aged cheese – cracked and dry.
The important thing to remember when you reach your 30’s (like me) is that you need to upgrade your skin care routine. The basics, cleanser, toner, and moisturizer just won’t cut it anymore. Now is the time you need to give your skin that extra boost by introducing serums, eye creams and products that use the words anti-aging, rich, or in this case ReVersive.
Four high-performance active ingredients, TELOVITIN, AGICYL, LUMICOL and EPOCYL are contained in the exclusive BABOR ReVersive range of products. Okay, but let’s be honest now. Unless you’re in the industry you’re probably clueless as to what these ingredients are, why they’re important and what exactly do they do for your skin. I’m going to break it down and simplify it for you because I also had no clue what they all meant until I Googled them.
Telovitin helps slow down the aging process so that cells stay young for longer. Agicyl activates your skin’s own pro-youth protective mechanisms (like your own bodyguard for your skin). Lumicol gives your skin radiance and luminosity by evening out skin tone and irregularities. Epocyl is all about the skin smoothness.
Okay, so now that we’ve got the science behind this cream down let’s get into how it actually worked for my skin. I’ve been using the BABOR ReVersive Anti-Aging Cream Rich every night for almost two months now and I feel like I’m in a good place to give you guys an honest review. I remember testing this cream on my hand when I was at the event in February and my initial thought was ‘Wow, that’s incredibly silky’. Now, 2 months later I feel the same way. This lightweight cream feels incredibly soft and silky on your skin. It sinks into your face with ease (no greasiness) due to the light formula, but still feels rich enough to penetrate your skin. Also, did I mention that it smells amazing. I like to think of the scent as a fresh, light and clean fragrance. It kind of reminds me of freshly washed linen. I know that’s bizarre, but that’s my perception of it.
I apply the BABOR ReVersive cream every night before bed and without fail every morning my skin looks plump, firmer, soft and noticeably more radiant. I’m not joking, beauty sleep is a real thing if you’ve been using this cream the night before. Now I know what you’re thinking – This cream costs R2,783, it better work. Yes, no doubt this is top shelf stuff but man oh man is it worth it. Take a look at the bottle that screams luxury, the decadently rich cream and the innovative airless pump. I’ve had a long love affair with BABOR and I’ve used many of their products before and if I had the money I would only use their stuff. I see results. It’s as simple as that. Now, if only I could get my hands on that eye cream as well. *throws piggy bank into wish fountain*.
