Created by a dermatologist for sensitive and rosacea skin, Riversol is premium skincare unlike any other! Dr. Rivers’ formulations, which combine thujaplicin with vitamins C and E are well tolerated by the even most sensitive skin, so we were excited to try out their products.
At first, I thought the moisturizer seemed more like a night cream than a day cream because it seemed a little on the heavy side when I first put it on. I put it all over my face before I went out to snowblow in a blizzard a few weeks ago. I think it would be really good after sun exposure as well. I found it was also great on the back of my hands too. It really softens the skin fast and skin stays supple and moist for hours after, without a greasy feeling.
After the moisturizer is on your skin for a while, it actually feels a lot lighter. After about an hour, you can barely feel it, which is a good thing if you have oily skin. I have dry skin and I found that it adequately moisturized my face as well, but I would love to try their T-Plus Moisturizing Concentrate as well.
The best part about this moisturizer is there is no scent or smell! Most often I find that I love the moisturizing effects of creams, but can’t stand the heavy scents and perfumes, making it impossible for me to use. Such is not the case with this cream. I also like that it left my face feeling and looking smoother with a matte effect. Great for under makeup too! (Even mineral makeup!)
I also love that Riversol all natural, no testing on animals, etc. Riversol products contain a strong anti-oxidant called thujaplicin, which is an ingredient derived from the Pacific Red Cedar tree that contains a redness-reducing molecule.
The cleansing cream is also great. I just used it again before writing this post and it’s top notch. It leaves the face moist even without the moisturizing cream. It kinda wakes up the face a bit! When you wash it off, you can feel the difference in your skin right away. I then applied the eye cream and my skin looked refreshed.
An hour later, I could still feel the positive effects of the products. Another plus is the eye cream doesn’t burn your eyes either – a common complaint with most eye creams.
Overall I am really impressed with their products and would not only personally purchase them, but would also recommend them to anyone who has Rosacea or sensitive skin that wants a natural approach to skin care.
