Brotox... ReVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream

So many guys with "mature" skin are getting poked by needles and going under the knife, turning to cosmetic procedures—mostly Botox—to knock a few years off your appearance and achieve that youthful, smooth, fresh look. Ouch! I've had my share of "Brotox" too, but Botox is expensive, it doesn't last very long and if it is injected in the wrong spot you can get a droopy, wonky eye look that can take weeks to bounce back. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt and don't want to do it again. Nope. I found a cream that is giving me the "smooth around the eyes" look I was getting with the needle pokes, but minus the sagging. It's also doing a nice job on retexturing my skin.

As my medicine cabinet will prove, I've tried so many creams, serums and gels that claim to be a substitute for Botox or even better than Botox but the one that is doing the trick for me is ReVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream. For the past few weeks I've been putting it on before bed as a night cream, along with ReVive Defensif Renewal Serum. I catch a few winks and wake up with seriously smoother skin. I also put a little around the crows feet part of my eyes every other day for a little boost. The cream incorporates Glycolic Acid— it gently exfoliates dead skin cells and refines texture. The 1.7 oz jar is $195 and yes it's an investment but I heard this cream referred to as the "if you can invest in only one good cream, this is it" cream, and I agree.
