Reversa Anti-Wrinkle Cream SPF 30



Hello! Today I have for you an anti-aging moisturizer from a new-to-me (Canadian!) company, Reversa. What's different about Reversa is that many of their products feature glycolic acid for exfoliation and reversing wrinkles. To see what I thought of this moisturizer, keep reading or click below!


Reversa's Anti-Wrinkle Cream SPF 30* ($45 CAD, 50 ml) contains broad-spectrum chemical SPF and 8% glycolic acid (alpha-hydroxy acid/AHA). I've never encountered a moisturizer with a chemical exfoliant in it before, so I was pretty excited to see how it works. Reversa uses a method called "Time-Release Glyco-Comfort System," which basically means the glycolic acid is released gradually instead of all at once to prevent irritating the skin. It's great that it has SPF too -- you should be wearing SPF daily anyway, and I always prefer when my day moisturizers have it. There's also no added fragrances or parabens, and the packaging is an airless pump which should prevent the important ingredients from deteriorating.

The Anti-Wrinkle Cream has a light, slightly sunscreen-y scent, and a texture that isn't too thin nor too thick. It soaks into the skin within a minute or so, and doesn't leave it sticky or shiny, but makes it feel smooth and soft. I don't really have wrinkles (yet!), so I can't test the wrinkle-reversing claims, but the ingredients list looks pretty awesome for preventative measures. Sunscreen is so important for preventing aging (and, of course, cancer and sunburn), and chemical exfoliants are my new best friends right now. I haven't had quite the same success with the glycolic acid in this as I have with Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid, but they are different exfoliants and my skin might just love BHA more. I haven't had any adverse reactions from the cream though, and my skin is enjoying being hydrated and protected from the sun when I wear it.

So far, so good, Reversa! I'm happy to see a Canadian, fairly affordable skincare brand using effective ingredients and packaging! You can buy their products online and at Shoppers Drug Mart (points redemption, anyone?) I'm definitely looking forward to experience more from Reversa in the future!
