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.
WHAT THE LABEL SAYS:
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.
HOW TO USE:
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.
MY TAKE ON RECOVA 30-NIGHT REPAIR FORMULA:
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.
PROS OF RECOVA SKIN REJUVENATION CREAM WITH 30 NIGHT SKIN REPAIR FORMULA:
- I can’t think of any.
CONS OF RECOVA SKIN REJUVENATION CREAM WITH 30 NIGHT SKIN REPAIR FORMULA:
- 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.
WILL I PURCHASE IT AGAIN: No.
IMBB STAR RATING: -1 for not working at all.
