SerumScoop: Tips, tricks and news
Beauty, fashion, and shopping site NYMPHASHION reviews stellar Ultimate Serum:
"…I can honestly tell it’s one of the most effective anti-age serums I’ve tried in the last year."
Ultimate Serum with Stem Cells, Growth Factors, and Peptides compares to TNS Essential Serum by SkinMedica®. Ultimate Serum contains 23 of the same ingredients in TNS, and also includes hexapeptides. It's also twice the size, and about half the price!

All of our serums perform different functions,
and all of them can work together.
A few of them pair together more intuitively.
Here's a breakdown.
FOR HAIR & SCALP
All of our hair stimulating products work wonderfully together.
• Our "hero product" RevivHair Stimulating Serum is applied daily, and is a leave-in serum.
• RevivScalp Rejuvenating Scalp Serum Masque is a pre-shampoo serum and is left on the scalp for 10-30 minutes before shampooing.
• Our RevivHair Stimulating Shampoo & Conditioner and remarkable new RevivHair Placode Booster Serum (used 3-4 times a year) round out this product line perfectly.
• RevivLash Lash & Brow Stimulating Serum targets eyelash & eyebrow density & fullness.
We recommend using all these products together to address hair loss and thinning hair issues. For the budget-conscious, landmark RevivHair Stimulating Serum would be the first choice.
FOR THE FACE
Our latest invention, TelomErase 6-in-1 Multi-Corrective Serum is the current benchmark. We recommend this stellar treatment serum to all our customers.
TelomErase Serum has the same base as our very-popular Ultimate Serum, but also has instant skin tightening, more wrinkle blurring, and the latest in long-term anti-aging telomere support. It is also even more moisturizing than the Ultimate Serum. Many customers have "graduated" to this new serum.
Not to discount renowned Ultimate Serum: it has a number of novel ingredients not found in TelomErase, like alpha-arbutin for brightening and extra stem cells, growth factors & peptides for long-term anti-aging. It's also a favorite of customers who have previously used TNS® Essential Serum from SkinMedica®. If you use these two serums together, we recommend TelomErase in the morning, and Ultimate Serum at night.
Phloretin Serum is unique, and a rather standalone product that we always recommend. Both TelomErase Serum and Ultimate Serum contain a Vitamin C Ester, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, but it is in small concentration compared to our Phloretin Serum. We lose a teaspoon of collagen from our faces every year after age 30, and vitamin C is required to build that collagen. The "gold standard" is ascorbic acid, included with the Phloretin Serum. Because of its low pH, it cannot be included in most other products because it would negatively affect actives like growth factors, peptides, and other delicate proteins, and it would degrade quickly if we were to buffer the pH. Its low pH is also why it works so well, since it has an exfoliating effect in addition to collagen building.
Here's a blog post about the subject: All about Vitamin C Serums, and why ours is best
We recommend waiting at least thirty minutes after applying the Phloretin Serum before applying our TelomErase Serum, Ultimate Serum or any product that contains delicate growth factors since the lower pH of the Phloretin Serum (even at 5% strength, and especially at 20% strength) may lessen the effectiveness of the growth factors. We recommend the following regimen: applying the Phloretin Serum in the morning, and the growth factor serum(s) at night.
Since hydration is different than moisturization, and most skin is dehydrated, we also always recommend our remarkable HA7X Multi-Molecular Hydrator Serum for hydration & plumping, as well as its anti-pollution & anti-stress effects (one of the great benefits of the award-winning Neurophroline® ingredient).
Our Copper Healing Serum contains a great copper peptide that is a wonderful active for skin. Because it generally cannot be combined in high concentration with vitamin C, it is a standalone product. It is not necessary to apply the copper peptide in the Healing Serum every day to achieve results (targeting inflammation, healing, and overall rejuvenation). You might reserve daily use of Healing Serum more to address specific, acute issues that may arise, like irritation, sunburn, rash, windburn, post-procedure, etc.
OTHER PARTS OF THE BODY
All of our facial serums can be used on the neck, hands and chest. TelomErase Serum can be applied to the upper eyelid area, but be careful not to get it in your eyes.
Our RevivSculpt Transforming Body Serum is, of course, meant for the body, but can also be used on the face although it is a bit occlusive.
All our facial serums can be applied to the lips with the exception of Phloretin Serum.

Remarkable benefits of BV-OSC (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate) in our Ultimate Serum: Antioxidant, Whitening, Collagen Synthesis & Protection
We use a novel form of Vitamin C in our Ultimate Serum: BV-OSC or Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate. This oil-soluble version of vitamin C is very bio-available and has excellent percutaneous absorption into the skin compared to ascorbic acid. It is able to penetrate keratinocytes to assist with the prevention of UV damage and provide a cytoprotection effect against cell mortality.
Studies show its anti-aging properties, including collagen synthesis. The use of BV-OSC has shown to DOUBLE collagen synthesis in fibroblasts.
It has also been shown to reduce melanogenesis by more than 80%, and inhibit tyrosinase activity, making it an excellent ingredient for brightening and evening out skin tone.
While BV-OSC is decidedly more expensive than other forms of Vitamin C, its benefits clearly outweigh its hefty price.

TNS Essential Serum® by SkinMedica® Allergan® has a very fancy pump bottle that contains two different chambers. You dispense both sides at the same time, and are instructed to mix the two together on the back of your hand.
One side of the pump has a pH of 5, and the other just less than that, at about 4.5.
We're inclined to think that the dual pump of TNS Essential Serum is essentially a marketing gimmick. What's the point of keeping two halves of the product separate, only to mix them together?
Growth factors and certain peptides are rendered less effective at a pH of less than 5. Presumably that is why the TNS product is packaged that way, although we of course can't be for sure (the manufacturer doesn't mention why). When you mix the two parts of the product together, of course you also blend the two pH levels, and would presumably also negatively affect any sensitive growth factors once mixed.
That's why our Ultimate Serum has a pH of about 5.8. It's a low enough pH to create a good acid balance on your skin, but not too low to adversely affect the sensitive growth factors and peptides in contains. All in one nice, but non-fussy, bottle. That's one reason why we can offer our Ultimate Serum at such a fair price. Ounce-for-ounce, it's about 1/4th the price of Skinmedica's TNS Essential Serum even though it contains the top 23 ingredients of that very effective, yet very pricey, product.
Note from our legal eagles: RevivSerums Ultimate Serum is neither endorsed, nor sponsored by, nor affiliated with Allergan Inc.
Ultimate Serum is the first direct competitor to award-winning TNS Essential Serum® (NEWBEAUTY™ Beauty Choice Award Winner and InStyle™ Beauty Award Winner) by SkinMedica® which is now owned by Allergan, Inc. The patent on the TNS product relates to the medium called NouriCel-MD®, a "proprietary blend" of growth factors. We at Reviv Serums outflank this patent by simply providing our growth factors in a different conditioned media. In addition to the growth factors, we also include 25 of the top primary ingredients in TNS Essential Serum, and leapfrog by adding two of cosmetic chemistry's latest ingredients: stem cells and hexapeptides.
It’s the ultimate rejuvenator in a single serum. Navigate to its product page here.
