ReVive Review


Like many anti-wrinkle products that are available today, ReVive is a topical use cream that bills itself as a non-invasive Botox alternative. And who wouldn’t want firm, young skin without having to spend a fortune at the doctor’s office? But how well to ReVive’s big claims hold up to a closer look. ReVive is the brainchild of one Dr. Gregory Bays Brown, a prominent plastic surgeon. Dr. Brown was on a research team that conducted a $2 million dollar skin in order to develop a viable topical treatment for burn victims. The results of this study would ultimately go on to become the formula for his ReVive line of skin care products.

So what was the “miracle” that came out of Dr. Brown’s research? The primary active ingredient found in ReVive skin care products is a bioengineered molecule that has been named Epidural Growth Factor. Also known as EGF for short, this molecule was originally developed to treat patients suffering from severe burns. Putting his medical background to use, Dr. Brown came up with a proprietary formula for ReVive based on EGF’s benefits, and the product claims to revitalize age-damaged skin deep down on a molecular level.

Product Details

Currently, ReVive sells a small groupd of patented skin care products. Their signature product is a potent EGF concentrate serum. Many of the other ReVive skin care products also make use of patented, bioengineered molecules while sticking to the brand’s original approach to molecular level skin care. In addition to their concentrate serum, ReVive also offers an eye tonic, a cleanser and moisturizer. The company claims that their molecule-based products also address collagen production, but little information is given regarding how this is done. Collagen is a naturally produced substance that keeps our skin firm and plump. As we age, our body’s natural collagen productiong slows and many current anti-wrinkle treatments seek to reintroduce collagen to aging skin. Some products also seem to include high levels of Vitamin C, which act as an antioxidant and protect skin from environmental factors.

All of this research and development doesn’t come cheap, however, and some potential users could be put off by ReVive’s three digit price tag. For example, a 2 oz. jar of Moisturizing Renewal Cream is sold for $150.00. And for the big spenders, the company offers a $1,500 beauty regimen kit. Obviously not everyone is going to get the full kit, but the manufacturers do recommend putting together a beauty regimen based on several core ReVive products in order see optimal results.

The Good

  • Product makes use of several heavily researched technologies.
  • Products are available both from the official website and at high end retail locations.
  • Official products website includes an on-line LiveChat feature, but we did not have the opportunity to test this.

The Bad

  • This product is one of the priciest that we have reviewed so far.
  • No free product sample is offered.
  • Not all products are suitable for all skin types.
  • We could not find a money back return policy on the official product website.

The Bottom Line

We do have a few reservations about this product. Obviously, the doctors involved in the original $2 million EGF study walked away with a ton of studies to back up the molecule’s effectiveness at treating severe burns, but ReVive offers no real information about how they want about repurposing the technology as a wrinkle treatment. Also, some potential users could find ReVive’s high cost prohibitive, especially when compared to some of the simpler, more affordable options on the market.

  1. I bought Re Vive Lip cream from Space NK and it brought me out in spots. At the age of 54 I have never had them, the product is very greasy, I continued using it to get through the spot barrier but had to give up. No difference to lines or wrinkles and expensive.

  2. I bought the lip lines product from Space NK it was £70, I have used it as recommended and ended up with spots and at the age of 54 I never have spots, it is also very greasy, I dont think the product is good enough and would like my money back.

  3. I purchased ReVive at Saks was alarmed a first when I was told the total amount for three products. I never bothered to ask the price did not think it was that expensive. After using the product for just over thirty days I was amazed at how many compliments I received regarding my facial skin tone enhancements and the younger my skin appeared. I do recommend this product!

  4. Have used Revive for many years. Have found superior results, although expensive. Compliments often & I credit this to the product. I occasionally try a couple of other products for a short time & always go back to Revive. Bergdorf’s representatives of the line are sweet & very helpful, never pushy. I, in fact, order from New York & live in California. Try it – you’ll love it!!!

  5. Ordered a trial sample for about $5. My account was hit with three charges of more than $90. They said I didn’t call to cancel for the full amount. This was not made clear at the time of the trial sample offer. My bank blocked the charges. BEWARE of the trial offer!

  6. I ordered the product which I was lead to believe that I would pay only $5 shipping. My account was hit with a $5 shipping fee, $44.92 fee and a $92.93 shipping fee on one 30 ml bottle. Since i also ordered another type of cream also I paid this amount again. If I had not called within 1 week after ordering who knows what kind of money they would have removed from my account.

  7. I buy mine at Saks. I was shocked at the price, so I asked for samples first! The effect of this cream is visible almost immediately. I cannot afford the serum which is over $650. However, I purchased the night renewal cream and the neck cream and they work wonders. Pair these with a good cleanser and a good moisturizer and get ready to receive compliments!
