Skincare Review: Rovectin Skin Essentials Activating Treatment Lotion and Aqua Activating Serum

From the Latin word reverti, which means to go back to where it was, Rovectin promises to gently repair damage and calm the skin. They use their proprietary Barrier Repair Complex to fortify the skin and prevent moisture loss. Their products are also cruelty-free products and are formulated without parabens, artificial colorants, artificial fragrances, mineral oil, and steroids.

I always thought I needed a mattifying toner then I experienced hydrating toners and it changed my life. It works so well in conjunction with my actives and has help make my skin look healthier. The Activating Treatment Lotion ($29) aims to strengthen the moisture barrier, exfoliate dead skin cells, and de-puff and retain moisture to the skin using vitamin e, caffeine, hyaluronic acid, trehalose, amino peptidase, and tocopherole. This hydrating toner was really gentle on my skin. The toner itself was unusually and satisfyingly thick but dries easily to the skin. This is one of the most hydrating toners I have experienced. I usually use this at night so I didn’t notice its depuffing benefits. It works well with my acids and helps keep my skin hydrated and soothed.

The Aqua Activating Serum ($36) works to intensely moisturize the skin, provide hydration, minimize the appearance of fine lines, and improve uneven skin tone using hyaluronic acid, vitamin e, trehalose, niacinamide, and peptides. Now, the consistency is a bit much for my oily skin so this is best used at night. It does hydrate and moisturize the skin but it sort of sits on top of my face and leaves my skin feeling a bit greasy in the morning. This might be best suited for those with drier skin types.

These two products I think will work for those with extremely dry and dehydrated skin. Using the toner is an enjoyable (and hydrating) experience but the serum proved a bit too much for my skin.
