Product summary

Judging from the ingredient list, "RéVive - Intensité Moisturizing Lip Balm by Révive" works well for improving skin hydration To work well, any moisturizer needs to include a combination of water-binding and emollient ingredients. RéVive - Intensité Moisturizing Lip Balm by Révive ticks this box. Humectants in this product (sclerocarya birrea seed oil and caprylyl glycol) help to increase the water content in the upper layer of the skin. (These ingredients do so by "capturing" water molecules from the outside air or from within the deeper layers of the skin). Ceramide ng, beeswax, cera alba, ethylhexyl hydroxystearate and glycine soja seed extract in this product help decrease the water evoporation from the skin, so that it stays hydrated for longer. These ingredients also soften the skin and take away the feeling of tightness and dryness.

Ingredient callouts

  • Another benefit is that this moisturizer contain ceramides (ceramide ng 0.15% - 0.65%). Ceramides are an important part of our natural skin barrier. The ceramides used in skincare are synthetic or come from plants. They help soften the skin and can help "fill the gaps" in the skin barrier, keeping the skin hydrated and resilient for longer.
  • We like that this moisturizer contains peptides (oligopeptide-24 0.90% - 1.35% and oligopeptide-41 1.10% - 1.70%). There are many different kind of peptides and they are naturally present in our skin. They all are a combination of amino-acids. Some of them work as natural anti-biotics, promote wound-healing and production of collagen. The science is still not settled on how effective peptides in skincare are, but it is very likely that they have a benefit. Peptides might help restore the skin barrier and fight the signs of aging. At the very least, peptides work as humectants: they attract water to the upper layer of the skin and improve its hydration.
