Reversa Acnex Purifying Solution Review + Reversa Skincare Giveaway

*Giveaway for $300 worth of Reversa Skincare for your skintype below! Open to Canadian residents only. 

If you've been with me for a while, you know that I have been using Reversa for a few years now. I reviewed the Reversa Solution for Acne Prone Skin last year if you are curious. It's a Canadian brand, which I am also so happy to support and test out. If you'd like more Canadian brands I have a Canadian Beauty Series on my YouTube Channel! The brand began in the 80s, and primarily focused on anti-aging skincare. Reversa was one of the first brands to include glycolic acid in its products. Glycolic acid is a skin penetrating AHA that will stimulate skin exfoliation (chemical exfoliation) and promote cell regeneration which will in turn leave you with better skin! More recently they've begun to release products for acne-prone skin, primarily adult acne.


For reference, I have oily and acne-prone skin. I have had acne for basically as long as I can remember. I believe grade 5 was when it all started, on my forehead. Then later it moved away from there and onto my nose and chin. Currently, at the age of 26 it is still working it's way onto my face but more so on my cheeks. Forehead is as clear as can be! I honestly still cannot believe it is something I still have do deal with, I thought it was a pre-pubescent thing, then a teen thing, then a young adult thing .. but turns out it is just a me thing!

The Reversa Acnex Purifying Solution retails for $29 CAD on their website or it can be found at Shoppers Drug Mart. You get lots of product in there, 200mL, and I love the ease of use top. You just flip open the top, push your cotton pad on top and it dispenses just enough product. It can be really easy to use too much and waste products like this when they are in other formats. Reversa Acnex Purifying Solution was made to tighten and unclog pores along with dry, eliminate and prevent future acne. If your skin is sensitive it is formulated without parabens, oils, perfumes and is alcohol free. It's not tested on animals either, that is always a plus in my books! 

When looking at the ingredient list, it's nice to see it is not a gigantic list. They seem to just put in what needs to be there, and nothing else. It's formulated with 2% salicylic acid (BHA) and 10% glycolic acid (AHA). The Reversa Acnex Purifying Solution is listed as having the "maximum concentration of salicylic and glycolic acids allowed in an over-the counter (OTC) product". 

My experience with this product has been great. I use this twice a day, after cleansing. Sometimes I get a slight tingle after application, but I love that - feels like it's doing something. It does not leave a residue on my skin, or leave it feeling dry or irritated. I have no problem using it under makeup either. It leaves my skin feeling, clean and fresh. My skin has been pretty agreeable lately in the way of acne, I mean I still get a random one pop up here and there but as for clusters of active breakouts, they are just about non-existent. After use I always follow up with an SPF, when using products that contain salicylic and glycolic acids your skin is reproducing and turning over cells and needs to be protected! Reversa makes a great one, the Reversa Radiance Cream with SPF 30. You don't want to spend all this time taking care of your skin, only to have it go to waste by skipping SPF!

  1. My skin type is oily for sure. But not super acne-prone. Maybe leaning more combo in the winter.
    As I get older, I am learning the importance of skincare and funny enough, a friend of mine was JUST recommending Reversa to me, so I would love to try them out!

  13. My skin is getting drier as the winter approaches. I'm a total greaseball in the summer-applying foundation is terrifying. But when the cold comes, it seems to zap all the moisture out of my skin.
