ReVitalistic is an anti-aging skincare line by recording artist/actress Vanessa Williams, created with the advice of dermatologists and aestheticians to provide a quality skincare collection at an affordable price.

The ReVitalistic by Vanessa Williams Five-Piece Discovery Kit includes five key products from the ReVitalistic line: Re-Start Skin Serum, Re-Contour Neck and Décolleté Cream, Re-Focus Firming Eye Serum, Re-Quench Anti-Age Defense Intensive Moisture Treatment and Perfexture Triple Enzyme Skin Perfecting Peel.

Re-Start Skin Serum with Anti-Aging Dermaxyl

Description

Re-Start Skin Serum is an anti-aging treatment with a blend of wrinkle-fighting ingredients like hyaluronic filling spheres to fill in deep wrinkles and Dermaxyl, a peptide and ceramide blend, to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the look of visible signs of age related skin damage. Re-Start promises to leave the skin feeling smooth and soft with a nice even tone.

Guide Review

The skin felt amazingly soft just as it says in the description on the QVC site. I don’t tend to get excited about skin care products, but this one even feels great as you put it on. It really does leave the skin feeling gloriously soft and smooth. Re-Start does triple duty as a skin serum, moisturizer and makeup primer. In fact, the serum is wonderful as a base for foundation, making the foundation feel and look better on the skin.

Re-Contour Neck and Décolleté Cream/Line Defense Cream

Description

Re-Contour Neck and Décolleté Cream is described as a multi-tasking cream specially designed for the neck and décolleté. With an anti-aging peptide complex, it helps improve the visible appearance of horizontal-vertical lines on the neck and décolleté with glycolic acids to exfoliate dull surface skin cells for fresher looking skin.

Guide Review

Like the Re-Start Serum, the Neck and Décolleté Cream makes the skin feel velvety smooth. It has a non-greasy formula and absorbs quickly. Some of the ingredients include shea butter, green tea extract grape seed extract and retinol.

Re-Focus Firming Eye Serum

Description

ReVitalistic Re-Focus Firming Eye Serum is an anti-aging serum for the eye area containing multi-peptides that help diminish the appearance of fine lines. It is formulated with Eyeliss, a multi-peptide complex that helps reduce puffiness and Haloxyl, a combination of active ingredients to help improve the appearance of dark circles and discoloration. Cucumber extract soothes and calms the delicate under-eye area.

Are Eye Creams Really Necessary?

Guide Review

I didn’t like that the eye serum comes out of the tube a bit watery, so you have to make sure you gently squeeze the tube so that too much doesn’t come out at once. This consistency is probably better for the eye area since it absorbs quickly and therefore doesn’t get into the eyes, which would cause irritation and puffiness. Since I suffer from allergies, it’s often hard to tell if eye creams actually work on me. However, while using this, the eye area didn’t appear as dark as it usually does during allergy attacks.

What Causes Dark Under-Eye Circles?

Description

The Re-Quench Anti-Age Defense Intensive Moisture Treatment hydrates the skin, helps improve visible appearance of facial lines and wrinkles and helps the skin fight free-radical damage.

Guide Review

I did not like the feel of Re-Quench. It has a strange consistency, somewhere between a lotion and cream, and I had a sticky feeling on my hands after applying it to my face. You also have to make sure that you don’t apply it too close to the eye area and let it absorb completely when using it at night before bedtime. Absorption took longer than expected.
