I love Revive. I have used it a lot thanks to asking for samples at multiple stores in London. I probably got a month's worth of samples at one point. I always wanted to buy it, but the price had always stopped me. I usually wear Creme de la Mer or Elemis, which I think are good, but Revive is the only cream where I can see the results within hours of starting wearing it.
Hi JJ, I do like Creme de la Mer, especially in the winter. I buy a 30 gr pot every winter and it last me about 4 months, so even though it is expensive, it does go a long way.
Thanks for the tip about samples, although to be honest, I normally get lots of samples at all the stores in London (or in the US if I am working over there). I am not shy, so I just go and ask for them. I am surprised how willing they are to give them to you if you just ask, and look like you might buy eventually. It would never happen in my country!
I am going to have to start asking for samples, although I do a lot of shopping for skincare online which isn't great for it.
Thanks for info - might give it a try next winter. An old and kept(!) resolution of mine has been to use up things before buying new ones. Unless it's foundation - I have to have a few shades on hand because my skin changes so dramatically at any hint of sun.
