Reversa Review



Reversa is a skin care range developed by Quebec based Dermtek Pharmaceuticals Ltd. Dermtek was founded in 1986 by Robert Lavoie. Reverse specializes in anti aging skin care products but also manufacturs an acne range.  The primary ingredient used in Reversa products is glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) extracted directly from sugar cane.

Glycolic acid  helps clear away dead skin cells to reveal a smoother complexion. It also helps improvement in skin texture and color. Reversa skin care features between 4 and 8 percent glycolic acid, which is strong enough to make gradul changes to the skin without cuasing irritation to most skin types. Reverse products include a solid percentage of active ingredients in its products, including B-Glucan, Glycolic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, Marine Extracts, Micro-CollagenTM, Soy Isoflavones, Vitamin E,  Wild Yam, Ash tree bark extract and Niacinamide and Teprenone. Reversa best sellers are Anti Spot Cream for age spots, liver spots and sun spots, Corrective night cream for wrinkles and loss of firmness and and Anti Wrinkle Cream for lines and wrinkles.

What’s Inside Reversa Skin Care?

Here’s a closer look at the active ingredients commonly used in Reversa skincare products. Vitamin C, peptides, and retinol make up the core ingredients for the Reversa skincare line. These ingredients should all be part of your skincare routine.

Vitamin C
We’ve been hearing for years that Vitamin C is the best anti-aging ingredient. It’s a potent antioxidant that protects the skin from free radicals, the unstable molecules that contribute to the formation of premature wrinkles and fine lines on the skin.

Vitamin C also helps fade dark spots, evens out skin tone, and increases radiance. As if that wasn’t enough, research suggests that when vitamin C is applied to the skin, it significantly reverses aging-related structural changes by influencing collagen and elastin synthesis.

It’s in Reversa Radiance-C Concentrate 20% Pure Vitamin C. 

As you age, your body’s production of collagen and elastin slows down. These two proteins are responsible for your skin’s structural support. As a result, the skin loses its natural plumpness and smoothness. 

While collagen is necessary for maintaining youthful-looking skin, the collagen protein is too large to absorb into the skin topically. That’s why applying skin care products that contain collagen won’t provide the anti-aging benefits you’re looking for.

This is where peptides come into action. Peptides are the building blocks of protein, and they are easily absorbed into the deeper layers of skin due to their smaller size. 

Reversa Collagenique Cream contains the anti-aging MATRIXYL®SYNTHE’6™ peptide. 

Retinol is the go-to anti-aging ingredient recommended by dermatologists and skin experts. It’s clinically proven to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve uneven skin tone, restore skin firmness, and shrink the appearance of enlarged pores.

The only downside? Retinol can often lead to side effects like skin dryness, peeling, and irritation. 

It’s in Reversa Retin[A]list Cream.

    I am 29 years old and i have tried every product the local drug stores have to offer for acne prone skin. reversa cream is by far the best face cream i have used yet. my mother purchased it and got me to test it out a weekend i spent visiting her. i fell in love the next morning after my first application the night before. my skin has never looked so soft and bright and has minimised my large embarrassing pores. Reversa is now my favorite skin care line and the fact its Canadian makes me even more pleased.

    I’ve been using Reversa Anti-Wriinkle cream twice a day for over ten years. I am 60 years old and have beautiful skin, no deep lines or wrinkles. I would highly recommend this product – I did use the Corrective Night Cream but recently decided to use the 8% Anti-Wrinkle cream morning and night instead and have really good results. Not too harsh, just a little tingle for a second after applying. Always remove all makeup and apply on clean dry skin.

    Have been using reversa for years. Currently living in the US and purchase stock up items when back in Canada. I have extremely sensitive skin and have never had a bad reaction to the products. I’m now using the eye cream with spf15 as well as booster, day/night cream, marine collagen and the toners and cleansers. I love reversa. I’ve tried numerous anti aging products and have found reversa gives me results. It’s so inexpensive compared to skin medica which I’ve tried. Results definitely. I just turned 50 and people constantly comment on my skins great appearance.

    I have been using Reversa for about 16 years. My doctor recommended it for my acne prone skin and it helped a lot. I’m 50 years old now and people are amazed at how wrinkle free I am for my age. I have sensitive skin, so when I first started to use this product I used the lowest % AHA and worked my way up to the 8%. I’m excited to see they have added new products, and eager to try them. So glad it’s a Canadian product that is readily available anywhere here. To add it’s not a scam like all those products you see advertised on TV pumped by celebrities. It’s such a good product they don’t need to advertise.

    I live in Miami, Florida and I cannot find Reversa products anywhere. Can you please tell me where I can find these creams? I cannot buy them online as I do not have a credit card that can be used internationally. I have no reason to travel to Canada and would prefer it if you can tell me who your retailers are locally. Thank you.

    I am a Reversa newbie and read about the benifits of using glycolic acid based skin care products and found Reversa to be gentle enough to us daily. I feel a slight tingling sensation when I apply the night cream but that only lasers a few seconds.

  • Daisy Original review: Aug 14, 2013. Reply

    My new favorite face cream. I use Reversa at night and I have been receiving compliments on how my skin looks soft, fresh, and glowing. My skin felt very softer when I woke up in the morning. I would like to know beneficial it would be to use this long term or whether there are any side effects after prolonged usage. I am not suggesting there is, I just like Reversa and want to make sure I can use it longer.

    I use Reversa Anti Wrinkle Cream twice per day. I got a sample last year and found it very moisturising and since my skin didn’t react (it reacts to most products) and because I am in my 30s and developing first signs of aging I thought it was time to buy an anti aging product.

  • Tamara Original review: Jul 29, 2013. Reply

    I have been using Reversa for several years now. I use three Reversa products: Anti Spot Cream, Corrective Night Cream and Anti Wrinkle Cream. I love the way my skin feels immediatly after applying the anti wrinkle cream. It is very hydrating and has this immediate tightening effect. Reversa is my favorite skin care brand. It’s Canadian and my locally. I highly recommend Reversa.
