Revitol uses a 3 step process which is supposed to reduce wrinkles, tighten skin, firm, and ultimately hydrate all to reduce dark circles and age spots as well. Their 3 step program includes a wrinkle complex, hydration treatment serum, and a moisturizing cream. They stress the idea that it can be used by men or women, which any product can considering men’s and women’s skins are not innately different.

Though these do provide extensive ingredients lists, none of them really have powerful wrinkle fighters and ingredients that would reduce wrinkles, dark spots, etc by increasing collagen and elastin production as well as skin turnover. They have one or two novelty ingredients of these types. But then they don’t even tell you where they might fall in the total ingredients list or what concentration they may use.
Overall Impression of Revitol:
Revitol is certainly not the best product we’ve ever seen. It is lacking in quite a few areas in which it should measure up, considering the price tag of over $100. If you were to combine their best ingredients into one formula and provide the right concentrations, for a total of 30% or more, you might be able to get one viable product that may be worth around $50. But Revitol simply doesn’t have what it takes.
