Recova 30 Night Repair Formula Review

I picked up this Recova 30-night repair formula for my mom after watching the advertisement on TV. My mom is in her late 40s and I thought this would do a lot good for her and also since it had the 30-night repair formula tag, I made her try it for 30 nights before giving me the feedback. Since, she finished more than 30 days with this cream, I am here with the review.


recova cream

Recova has been specially formulated to deliver VTA, an internationally developed, New-Age ingredient (by MERCK Germany) that helps to improve skin physiology and skin moisture.


Massage gently on face every night before going to sleep, continuously for 30 nights. Allow it to work on the skin through the night for effective results. For best results, massage on your face with more than usual quantity for the first 7 nights. Also, regular massage on hands brings back their softness and tenderness.

PRICE: Rs. 250 for 80 mL.

The first thing that got me amused was this instruction on the cover that said “for the first 7 nights, use more than the usual quantity.” I do not understand what is the science behind this instruction, but I told my mom to do so.

Recova tube contains a thick cream which when applied and massaged on to the face turns into a gritty texture, which does not get absorbed into the skin. It remains on the surface of the skin in the form of minute sandy granules. My mom followed this massaging double the usual quantity for the first 7 days and then normally for the following days.

Now, what happened after 30 days, well, nothing happened after 30 days, and the tube was almost getting over.

Recova skin correction cream with 30-night skin repair formula did not bring any noticeable change in my mother’s skin texture and she was very happy that the 30-day test was over and she very happily got back to using her favourite Oriflame Bluberry and lavender night cream, which she absolutely loves.

BTW, even, I tried Recova for one night to see how it would work on me, and it broke me out horribly the next morning, understandably so, because it did not even penetrate the surface of the skin. I did not touch it after that.

  • I can’t think of any.


  • Gritty texture which does not even get absorbed into the skin.
  • This is not a correction formula.
  • This is not a skin repair formula.
  • You need to use “double the quantity” for the first 7 days and it is not even explained why it should be done like that.
  • Oily skin people will definitely break out in zits after using this.
  • Price is expensive for a product that does not work at all.


IMBB STAR RATING: -1 for not working at all.

  1. oriflame’s royal velvet range is supergood jomol.. :woot: tell your mom to try it.. especially the mask from royal velvet range.. apply it at night as would a night cream(it is a cream mask) and wakeup to find your skin all glowy glowy and smooth like velvet! :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: trust me you can try it too..coz i tried this and i have oily skin and it did not break me out at all! i looooove it… :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

    1. Jomol I so agree with Sireesha on this.. the royal velvet or the diamond collection are way way better than any other products that you see around…My mom has been using the diamond night restorative and her skin has improved & glows too :)… They are expensive however worth every penny spent 😉

      1. Pooja……………….can you guess what I will order for next month :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly:

      2. they are so expensive na pooja.. but i got it on some me happy happy.. :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: but i think royal velvet is a little less expensive than diamond range.. am i right pooja ?:)

        1. Sireesha .. Royal velvet is less expensive them diamond but as I said worth every penny spend. Royal velvet mask whenever in discount goes out of stock in seconds. Diamonds are on discounts this months and anti-age went out of stock in minutes and I could only pick 5 pieces 🙁

          1. Pooja could you please recommend a light day moisturizer from oriflame for me? I have sensitive combination skin ,prone to break outs but oil free moisturizers don’t give enough hydration.

            1. Ankita @ you may try the aloe vera day cream which is g8t for sensitive skin and does not break you out or the Essentials Soothing face cream for sensitive skin.

  2. Sireesha…………thanks so much dear…………..I am going to order it for my mom……… :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

        1. shyna..oriflame always comes up with many offers.. wait for one such offer where that royal velvet range will be on offer and then you can pick it up for less.. 😀 i got it like that only 😉

    1. no jomol.. the deluxe superior nourishing mask from the royal velvet range.. i have the night cream which is quite good too but that mask is superb! :jaiho: it is a cream mask and can be used as overnight treatment twice a week.. just apply like any other cream,massage lightly and then sleep.that’s it. :bravo:

    1. am waiting for your oriflame reviews…and then i will mail pooja….but u know something my hubby will be back from bangok after a short trip day after tomm…he is also buying skin care items :yahoo: since i told him not to buy any make-up bcoz am not with him

  5. Rati..I have a question..what is the difference between face primer and eyeshadow primer? I mean can’t we use a face primer for eyeshadow application as well? How do these both differ?

    1. Cali………….good question……..face primer can be appliedon the face and eye shadow in the eye….i mean conjunctivae alsoooooooooooooooo. :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1:

        1. Thankooooooooo Poutmati and please note that I will be charging for answering technical questions :silly: :silly: :silly: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug:

            1. Cali….what do you think I am giving all wrong information…………you know what my IQ quotient is :teeth: :teeth: :teeth: :teeth: :teeth: :teeth: :teeth: :vampire: :vampire: :vampire: :vampire:

              1. :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: I know how your IQ write IQ as IQ Quotient.. :snicker: :snicker: :snicker: :snicker: And I donno how your MQ is!!! Why is no one giving me right answer here!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali:

            1. How did you manage to get mountainfull of :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: ……..where did you store it………… 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐

    2. Cali although I technically don’t know the differences but they are separate products means for separate parts of the face. Face primer might not be safe to apply on eyes until specified that the product is safe to use on eyes. Both have similar role. You apply face primer so that it gives a smoother surface for your foundation to glide easily, to control oils on your face, to minimize the appearance of your pores or to make your foundation to lasts longer. Eyeshadow primers help your eye shadows to last longer. The textures are different. Sometimes face primers have moisturizing properties so if you apply them on your lids, they would not help in controlling the oils on your lids. and you can def not apply an eyeshadow primer on your face (think UDPP or MAC Paint Pot). Similarly some face primers help minimize the pores on your face, they’d do nothing if you apply them on your lids.

      I hope I am not confusing you. 😛

      1. ohhh..yeah..I got that..I wasn’t intending to use eyeshadow primer on face!! 😛 😛 ..but yeah..wanted to know if face primers can be used for eyeshadows too..coz most of the eyeshadows I have, crease when I try to use more than one and blend was thinking of getting one..But I wanted to know if face primer can work the same or not!! … :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks:

        1. pick up mac paint or paint pot you wouldnt regret buying them. and they’d go strong for almost two years. I have made sure not to pick product from my mac paint pot with fingers or brush so it’s clean and in good condition after almost an year now. 🙂

            1. Cali, you can use MAC Prep+prime on your eyelids too. When I’d been to MAC for my lesson, th MUA had used it on my entire face including lids and it worked fine. My eyemake up was fine for 8-9 hours.

      2. Hawwwwwwwwwwww Cali………… pointed out a typo where I wrote IQ as IQ quotient :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: I no fraands with you……pink chaddis for you…………not for shyna :pig: :pig: :pig: :pig:

        1. ahaaaaaan… I like pink chaddhis. I’ll ask Rati to courier you Wilbur’s phatti chaddhis as return giftsss..they’ll save your oriflame and gold collection from all buri nazars!! O:) O:) O:) O:) O:) O:) O:)

                  1. You know Cali……………..I have two questions for you”

                    first one:….How can fatti chaddis save me from buri nazar… effective is it in comparison to kaala tikka :shy: :shy: :shy: :shy: :shy:

                    Second question:

                    From where did poutmati stock up wilburji’s chaddis??? :yelo: :yelo: :yelo: :yelo: :yelo: :yelo:

                    1. I donno..Sanjeev only told this in one some post that they hang Wilbur’s fati chaddhis all around their house to save Rati’s cosmetics from buri nazar..So far it has worked fine!! You know creativity and innovation…Like you found out how cow dung is good for healthy hair..they found some X Nazarbattu factor in Wilbur’s fati chaddhis….I think He might have sent them as nazarbattu gifts for publicizing him so much here in this blog!!! O:) O:)

                    2. aha Cali………….perfect………..since you discovered/invented/serendipeted it……why don’t you patent it :lol2: before rads/poutmati steal your idea :lol2:
