Riversol Skincare Review

Gendots : Riversol Skincare Review

A few months ago I've been sent a set of skincare by Riversol, a Canadian company from Vancouver. I was impresed by how much product I got, but couldn't proceed to try them out, as I was already testing other skincare. It had taken me time, but I've finally got around to it.

The Riversol skincare range is made with Beta-T (Beta-Thujaplicin), which is derived from red cedar from the Pacific Northwest. Beta-T benefits include anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-pigmentation proprieties.

So here's what I thought of the products:

Riversol Foaming Gel Cleanser
$29 available at riversol.com
This cleanser has a very strong cedar smell. Like, really strong at first, but then I got use to it. It says foaming gel and yes it is a gel, but to me it wasn't foaming at all. My skin doesn't seem to react badly to it and as long as I use something more targeted to deep pore cleansing or a scrub a few times a week my black heads don't go out of control. I did notice that my skin gets less red when using it.

Riversol Anti-Redness Serum
$69 available at riversol.com
It is very liquidy when first applied and adhere and sinks into the skin fast. The smell is a lot milder than the cleanser. Actually, I could barely smell anything. I feel like whatever I put on top of this will somehow work faster.

Riversol Daily Moisturizing Lotion
$49 available at riversol.com
It goes on somewhat mat and is not geasy at all. In combination with the serum it looks really good underneath make up. However, it is not moisturizing enough for my highly dehydrated skin to use on a daily basis. But if I want my make up to look extra good, this is the combo I would use, as long as it's not every day.

Overall, I think these Riversol products are good, even if it's not moisturizing enough for my really dehydrated skin. I'm sure it would be perfect for someone with normal skin.
