Make some room on your shelf! After 25 years, we’re expanding the Renewal Collection again– Introducing our new Moisturizing Renewal Lotion Nightly Dual-Acid Retexturizer! A lightweight, nighttime face lotion featuring our signature Bio-Renewal Technology and a powerful glycolic and polyhydroxy dual-acid blend that gently exfoliates skin for a brighter, hydrated look. To celebrate this launch we spoke with Liz Martin, RéVive’s Head of Product Development, to get insight into how it was developed and why it’s our most exciting formula yet.
“We always knew we wanted an exfoliating lotion,” Liz tells us. The first of its kind in the franchise, which includes our cult-favorite Moisturizing Renewal Cream Nightly Retexturizer, the Moisturizing Renewal Lotion’s formula feels weightless on the skin– ideal for those seeking a hydrating moisturizer that isn’t heavy or sticky. If you’re in a warmer climate or prone to blemishes and oily skin, the Moisturizing Renewal Lotion’s lightweight lotion texture is perfect to swap into your nighttime routine. Men looking to improve their shaving experience can also benefit from this formula’s exfoliating and hydrating properties.
This lotion’s unique formula is also best for sensitive skin types, younger skin, or anyone new to acids. “We listened and responded to consumers who have a hard time tolerating a pure, high concentration glycolic acid only cream.” If you are new to glycolic acid, but are worried about its impact on your skin, the gentle delivery of this dual-acid blend makes it the best place to start.
As the first lotion in the line, developing it came with a variety of challenges- namely in balancing ingredients and concentrations to achieve the right formula. “How to ensure the acids effectively get to work helping to remove the dead surface skin cells while not creating any irritation was a challenge. Challenge accepted and completed!” Emerging from months of fine-tuning different types and levels of acids- a gentle, yet powerful acid blend for even texture, brighter skin, and maximum hydration.
In an independent research study,
- 94% of consumers said skin looks clearer, brighter and smoother
- 97% said skin feels deeply hydrated and moisturized
- 91% said skin texture is more even
- 100% of men said they experienced increased comfort when shaving & post shaving
Key Ingredients and Technology
A time-released glycolic and polyhydroxy dual-acid blend is unlike any other in the collection. Glycolic acid, a small acid molecule, travels deep into the upper layers of the skin for exfoliation. Polyhydroxy acid, the larger molecule, helps exfoliate the outermost layer without irritating sensitive skin. The skin is then prepared to receive our signature Bio-Renewal Peptide, which enhances skin cell renewal to leave you with an even, radiant base.
Meanwhile, a blend of antioxidants works diligently to soothe and brighten the skin. While green tea’s anti-inflammatory properties calm any irritation, licorice root helps to promote even-looking skin and reverse hyperpigmentation.
With oil-free humectants and soothing botanicals, this non-comedogenic lotion deeply hydrates and nourishes skin overnight without clogging pores.
Work 1-2 pumps into the skin in the evening after applying cleanser, toner and serum. Avoid contact with eyes, and wash hands after use!
