I love revive(prononced Ra-veeve)!. I just got the neck renewal cream and moisture renewal cream and i really love them I have only used a couple times and my skin is glowing.This is truly an outstanding product.I am using retin A also so that will help speed up the cell turnover which all of these products are supposed to do. Just received the volumizer product today(600-but got it off ebay for 189),I am very excited to try it tonight. The peau magnifique which sells for 1500 for about 4 vials I am trying to buy off a private seller for 400- supposed to be a facelift in a bottle....wont try it unless I get it for 400.I did call a S/A at neiman marcus for advice and she said that moisturizers on the neck pull it down and cause crepiness..to just use the neck renwal cream which tightenes....I have been using tns recovery complex for 2 yrs and that has helped a lot but I like to try these with the tns and retin A.

crikey it would want to work for that money and hope you get it and it does. When applying neck cream we should go against gravitation and bring hand around to back of neck also they say posture is very important

I heard the peau magnifique is not for everyone.If you are not that old it you wont see results.If you are over 50 you should see results.

I am new to this forum. But I love this site and the fact that members could post their opinions/reviews. A little background about me, I've worked in a personal care R&D lab. On a side note, I think sometimes what works for you is better than the pricetag a product comes with. This is just my opinion at least my experience from working in the beauty industry, at least behind the scenes where it counts a lot. In the personal care industry, a lot of the clients asked us to either add 'goodies' or put less 'goodies' in, which means make the product cost more or less to produce and mass manufacture. I don't mean to burst anyone's bubble, but sometimes it cost literally pennies/oz. to make a product and sell it for a HUGE profit. So in the end, I think sometimes the namebrand Saks Fifth Avenue/Neiman Marcus product is fine, but does it really work for you? And sometimes the actives or 'goodies' are at such a dismal percentage that you would truly be disappointed you spent so much on a product. But consumers will never have access to the exact percentages nor the formula. I guess what I'm trying to say is I haven't tried Peau Magnifique, but if something else is out there and is significantly cheaper it doesn't necessarily mean that the product isn't as good. Just my opinion again!

I'm confused, LucyLuc, in another thread you said the new Jan Marini product was the best you'd ever used...now it's ReVive?

In my opinion, the only product that works to actually eradicate wrinkles and sun damage (and the associated collagen and elastin degradation) is Retin-A, which retals for about $45 per tube. You can save even more money by purchasing a stronger version of Retin-A, and cuting it with moisturizer.

Aside from tretinoin, niacinimide and peptides have even proven to work somewhat...and one can buy those actives in Olay products for reasonable prices. Olay Regenrist products have received excellent reviews from consumers and dermatologists alike. By the way, there are peptides in the ReVive products, but for MUCH bigger price tag.

My concern is that women run out and purchase the "next big thing" upon any good review on a forum like this one. The product is usually which is often an extremely overpriced and with ZERO clinical studies showing any efficacy whatsoever. These prices are absurd for skincare products that do NOT even penetrate the dermis.

Spend your money wisely, ladies.

I have heard good things about this line, but the retail prices are just ridiculous! I mean, truly absurd! In the end, it's a topical, not an epidermis-penetrating laser high beam.

Really glad you did not pay retail, lucyluc! Enjoy and do keep us posted. I'll live vicariously through your experience.

Yes ladies~

I think if a product works for you great...but if it comes w/a hefty pricetag it doesn't necessarily mean that product is anymore efficient than another product 1/5th of the cost.. It's always best to use a product that works well for your skin type and not just merily by the 'rave' or 'money' factor. And fyi sometimes the clinicals are done by the company or dr. himself/herself, with volunteers who already think the dr. is a SKIN God. Just some tidbits from experience. Smile
