Vivant Skincare Systems Sponsor Spotlight Review

Wow! Have I got some great skincare products to tell you about today! I was sent this awesome set from a company called Vivant Skincare and here is what they sent:

1.) Green Tea Antioxidant Cleanser
2.) Rejuv RX Peptide Concentrate
3.) Derm-A-Renew Gentle Peptide & Vitamin A
4.) Marine Skin Nourishment Cream
5.) Day Treatment Lotion SPF 15 with Zinc Peptide

Here is the way this skincare should be used:

Cleanse with Green Tea Antioxidant Cleanser
Apply Rejuv Rx Wait a few minutes,
then apply Day Treatment Lotion with SPF 15

Cleanse with Green Tea Antioxidant Cleanser
Apply Derm-A-Renew every other day for the first 10 days and every day there after
Apply Marine Skin Nourishment Cream on the off days

That is alot of skincare products! Oh, almost forgot, this was a regime that was selected for me when they asked me about my concerns and I also had to send them a picture of me without makeup. That means that this set is good for people that need anti-aging products but also have dry, mature skin.

Since I don't have Sensitive Skin, I don't think this would be good for someone who does.  So, please go on their site and read about the product for in depth knowledge so you know which ones are for you and which ones aren't. I can't copy everything that is written there, just the basics or I would fill several pages. Just don't want you to get something you don't need.

So, let's start with the Green Tea Antioxidant Cleanser. I really loved this cleanser. It was clean, crisp and smelled very natural and lathered up really fast & quick. So, don't use too much or you will be wasting alot of your cleanser. It only takes a small dab. I would rather stop off too small then too much and lose it for nothing.   Use this day and night.

Vivant's Details:

Product Overview: A universal face and body cleanser fortified with antioxidants Green Tea, Grape Seed and Kiwi Extracts. Gently foams away impurities while preserving the skin’s natural acid mantle. Great for all skin types, including rosacea.
Skin Conditions: Rosacea, Post-Surgical, Post-Peel
Skin Types: All Skin Types
Key Ingredients: Green Tea Extract, Kiwi Fruit Extract, Honey Extract, Grape Seed Extract

Then we have the Rejuv RX Peptide Concentrate. You use this to help with redness or to hydrate or tighten the skin. You can use this either once or twice a day. I loved this serum! My face got that nice tight feeling that made me feel great because I knew it was actually working! A little goes a long way so go easy on this product also until you get the feel for how to use and how much. There is a dropper inside to help you get the product out without using too much.
Vivant's Details:
Product Overview: Daily use of Rejuv Rx reduces redness, hydrates and tightens the skin. The result is a firmer, more even-colored complexion giving the appearance of a “lift”.
Skin Conditions: Rejuvenation, Rosacea
Skin Types: All Skin Types
Key Ingredients: Palmitoyl Oligopeptides, Lactic Acid, Urea, Niacinamide

I think this one is pretty much self explanatory. It is a Day Moisturizer with SPF 15 to help protect against the sun. After you have done the first two products above, then put this on last. I liked this one because it was not thick but a light feel to it and it goes on really super fast so watch how much you use.
Start small and work your way up. I would rather keep putting a product on then have too much to begin with because if you have too much on your hands or have mixed it with something else, it will be hard to put back in the bottle. (this is if you use their directions, see below)
Vivant's Details:
Product Overview: Super-light, non-comedogenic daily UVA/UVB moisturizer with Zinc Peptide that unites sun protection and skin care. Zinc Peptides and Whole Lead Aloe Vera provide anti-inflammatory benefits for acne and rosacea clients. Mix with loose powder mineral make-up to create a base for all skin types.
Skin Types: All Skin Types
Key Ingredients: Whole Leaf Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Zinc Peptides
Directions: Apply liberally before sun exposure and as needed. Reapply as needed or after towel drying, swimming or perspiring. Children under 6 months of age; ask a doctor.

Here is another product I really liked called the Derm-A-Renew Gentle Peptide & Vitamin A. I love Vitamin A and it works so great in the fight against fine lines and wrinkles. This is not a harsh lotion and Vivant actually advises that after your skin gets used to this to go on to a more potent product. 
They did not tell me or send me which one that would be so I will need to find out which one that is.  I have been using skincare products for years so I probably could have gone on to a more potent one from the start, but when starting a new line that you are not sure of, it's best to listen to them, they are the experts and know their products better than you do.
Vivant's Details:
Product Overview: A gentle peptide and Vitamin A therapy that minimizes the appearance of fine lines, smooths skin texture and improves acne.
Skin Conditions: Acne, Hyperpigmentation, Rejuvenation, Rosacea
Skin Types: All Skin Types
Key Ingredients: Palmitoyl Oligopeptides, Niacinamide, Retinyl Propionate, Kojic Acid, Lactic Acid

Now, here is another product that I really loved as well, the Marine Skin Nourishment Cream.  Okay, here is a product that young women will not need. This is for mature women who have dry skin.  This is one of the products out of the skincare that was selected especially for me. I loved the smell and the nice feel of this moisturizer and my skin must have agreed because it absorbed quickly.

If you don't have dry skin and aren't an older woman, this may not do you any good or may be too harsh for you. Also, it is not for anyone who has acne. This is considered a moisturizer with rich marine minerals.

Vivant's Details:

Product Overview: A rich antioxidant moisturizer that replenishes the skin with a special blend of marine minerals, amino acids, sea proteins and polysaccharides. Protects against moisture loss and free radical damage.
Skin Types: Dry, Mature
Key Ingredients: Grape Seed Oil, Algae Extract, Oat Protein, Whole Leaf Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Green Tea Extract
Directions: Massage evenly over face, neck and chest. For optimal results, use in conjunction with a Vivant regimen. Can be applied on top of any Vivant serum to alleviate dryness.

They have so many other products that there is not enough room for all of them but I can tell you that there is a set of skincare products for just about every type of skin out there. Take the time to go thru and see which one is best for you or ask for their opinion. They will more than likely ask for a picture to be emailed to them along with what you are struggling with.
I like that approach vs. just picking something out on the internet and you don't even know if it's right for you or not. So, if you can, I would ask for the help and it will save you lots of time and money looking for the correct skincare for you personally.
I think the only other product I would like to have is a good Vitamin C product. I have used it in the past and it works well with my skin. Then an eye serum and I am all set! But with the products above you should be all set to start off with and then advance from there into whatever product you need or add to if needed.
I found this description of Vivant Skincare on their Blog info:
