Last summer, we gave you "5 Reasons Why You Need to Change Your Moisturizer For Summer" . We talked about how it was important to change up your skin routine during the summer months. The heat can do a number on our skin and make it harder to keep our faces hydrated and moist. We know this is a challenge for many people no matter the skin type so we formulated our R E V I V A L Ultra Gel Moisturizers so you can successfully keep your skin plump, dewy, and hydrated and it is back for the summer so make sure you stock up!
There are four Ultra Gels in total, and each has its own key ingredient combined with our botanical hyaluronic acid to address different concerns. We’re going to break down each gel and its benefits so you can decide which one is right for you. Let’s get started, shall we?
This one has a lovely royal purple hue, which matches our aesthetic so that’s a win for us and it's naturally derived from the elderberry extract! For the record, there are no dyes or artificial colors used in these Ultra Gels. All the colors you see are naturally derived from the ingredients! Pretty cool, huh? Elderberry has calming properties and is great for stressed or sensitized skin. It’s very anti-aging, and is able to balance oil production. Elderberry contains vitamins A, C, and E. These help the skin with its renewal process, encourage a brightened appearance, and promote healing.
Elderberry also contains bioflavonoids, tannins, Omega-3 fatty acids, and pectins. These substances provide the elderberry's antioxidant properties. The bioflavonoids also help prevent wrinkles from forming and reduces anti-aging in general.
For acne sufferers, elderberry is a potent astringent and has anti-bacterial characteristics thanks to the tannins it possesses. Elderberry can help reduce the appearance of breakouts and assist with shrinking pimples.
This pink Ultra gel contains passionflower, an ingredient that is very rich in fatty acids, mainly linoleic acid, which helps to soften the skin, and repair the moisture barrier. Passionflower contributes to supple and smooth skin. It also helps to plump up and firm the skin which reduces the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging.
It contains lycopene, a form of vitamin A and is full of Vitamin C as well. Aids in brightening and calming the skin. Passion Flower is also full of antioxidants and helps to neutralize free radicals and other skin stressors.
Passionflower has anti-aging properties due to the Vitamins A and C. Helps the skin to retain its collagen and assists in cell growth and repair. This powerful extract is very anti-inflammatory and calms the skin. Reduces redness and soothes agitated skin. One antioxidant, quercetin, helps to inhibit enzymes in the body that trigger inflammation. It also helps promote glowing skin due to the vitamins and antioxidants assisting in the regeneration process.
The word “chrysanthemum” originates from Greece, means “Gold Flower". This lovely ingredient contains astringent properties and can be used to balance and soothe the skin. Chrysanthemum reduces redness and swelling due to its anti-inflammatory characteristics.
This Ultra Gel is ideal for people who suffer from acne, eczema, rosacea, and other inflammatory skin conditions. Psoriasis sufferers will be able to benefit from topical application of chrysanthemum. It can help to reduce the appearance of large pores, and also helps balance oil production in the skin. Combination and oily skin types will benefit as well. Chrysanthemum contains beta-carotene and antioxidants which help to neutralize free radicals and promote skin renewal and healing.

Being antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic, juniper berry is wonderful for acne sufferers and those who have eczema flare-ups. It can help reduce the appearance of blemishes and swelling from pimples and pustules. Juniper berry also combats fungus and can prevent infection which is great for wound healing, ringworm, athlete’s foot, and other skin ailments.
This ingredient contains flavonoids and antioxidants as well, which help to renew the skin and fight free radicals. Juniper berry reduces signs of aging and promotes youthful appearance. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles will also diminish with regular use. Juniper berry can also assist with skin barrier repair and can help to fortify the epidermis.
Loaded with vitamin C, juniper berry can reduce the appearance of dullness and a lackluster complexion on the skin. It also has monoterpenes, phytochemicals that help to combat bacteria, reduce inflammation, and reduce oil. It can also enhance skin penetration. Like elderberry, juniper berry contains astringent properties and can help to clear bacteria and dirt from pores. It also helps to tighten the skin and contribute to a more youthful complexion. Juniper berry can also help to balance oil and sebum levels in the skin along with reducing excess oil production. The cool blue extract helps to boost the appearance of glowing skin and has a brightening effect. Because of this, it has been used by women to treat cellulite as juniper berry can help to dissolve fat in the sebaceous layer of the skin.
