Reviva Labs Makeup Primer Is Simply Amazing!!

Can you imagine sweeping a substance over your skin and instantly having no pores, nearly no wrinkles or blemishes and absolutely smooth, even skin? I couldn't imagine it either until I tried Reviva Labs Makeup Primer. I almost feel that I am doing you a disservice by not providing feel-o-vision so you can see and touch the difference in skin tone and texture once this product is applied. It really is amazing.

I've tried other primers in the past. When Smashbox first came out with theirs, I tried it and broke out from it with little allergic bumps. That didn't impress me much. I tried Laura Mercier's primer, and it was ok. I have and use Mac's Prep and Prime from time to time. If you've used it, you'll know it has additional optical diffusers that provide some added micro-sparkle. It smooths my face some, but nothing like the Reviva Labs Primer. Oh. My. Gosh. It's just that good.


This primer has some additives that benefit your skin over time. There is CoQ10, Vitamins D3 and A...what other primers do you know that have ingredients to help your skin, besides the optical advantages it provides?

The bottle has a pump top dispenser. You can pump it onto your finger and apply it to your face, (and even your neck and chest, if you want), or you can do it the way I do. I love working with brushes; I find brush strokes to be soothing and relaxing in a theraputic way. When I paint, I am able to work out the whole world's problems thru the rhythm of brush strokes. So I pump some out to my foundation brush and apply it that way and watch the magic.

When I first used this primer, it knocked my socks off!! There was such a difference in how my skin looked...visibly smoother and I saw my lines and pores just disappear!!! I was amazed. I've not seen that with any other primers. And how smooth it felt!! It was as if my skin felt just like a fancy silk scarf because it was so smooth and silky. And looking in the mirror, I was tempted to throw foundation aside because of the completeness that the primer gives my skin. It's a wonder!!

In my exploration of the primer, I have sampled it to people of different skin types. I am dry with fine lines and I've shared it with people who have combination skin, oily skin, and break-out prone. Everyone raved about it. Everyone. Not one bad comment.

Sometimes it's hard for a blogger to write such a raving review because I know that until you, the reader, experience the product, you just won't know how really amazing it is, and it might seem like I was on a sugar rush when I wrote this or something, but this, by far, is the best beauty product I've ever used on my face. I saw immediate positive results. I know you will, too. I can't say enough good things about it.

Reviva Labs provided me with the Makeup Primer for testing, but I'm telling you, my review and absolute love for this product is 100% honest evaluation by myself and several friends. The full one ounce of this product sells for $19.50 on the Reviva Labs website. I don't have a formal relationship with the company, but I want to provide you the link for your ease in purchasing this amazing product.

Have you tried anything from Reviva Labs yet? Or do you have another primer that you love? What is your favorite ever beauty product you've used on your face?


  1. This is the only primer I've been using lately. It really is a great one. I just reviewed the coolest product from Reviva Labs - their Hyaluronic Acid Night Gel. It's soothing and cool to the touch. It's clear so it's fun to use!

    1. Thank you, Marcia, I'll put that on my list of things I want to try. I'm currently sampling a couple other Reviva Labs products and entering every giveaway I can because everything I've tried has been super, and everything else that I haven't tried, I want to!!

  2. This did leave my face feeling super soft and smooth but it absolutely did not conceal my HUGE pores ):

    1. Thank you so much for that information. I have been fortunate not to have any visible pores till the last couple of years, so mine are probably small. Being a dry person, not much oil comes out so there's no reason for the pores to enlarge, but I was thrilled to see mine disappear. I'm sorry it's been different for you. Is there another product you've found that does this for you? Isn't the softness you feel with this primer absolutely amazing?

  3. Glad you like it! The price can't be beat either!

  4. Wow, what a great review! Now I am DYING to try this primer!
