Everyone has scars. They become a right of passage throughout childhood and then stick with you through most of your life. For some of us, their impacts are more formative than others.
I’m someone whose scars bother them. A lot. At this point, after trying almost every scar treatment product on the market, I really feel like I’ve pretty much lost all of my hope when it comes to treating scars.
That probably seems like the understatement of the century since the whole meaning behind the word scar is permanent. And, although I do know this, and have accepted that my scars are more than likely going to be with me for life, it’s still not easy. I guess I always hoped they’d somehow disappear.
When I really think about my scarring, there isn’t really anything to be ashamed of. More than that, there is no situation I can fathom that anyone could have a permanent body mark that is worthy of shame. I have these two kind of small markings on my legs from when I fell as a child. They sort of grew up with me. Something that was so small as a child (and did take a whole of my skin away with it) is not so small that I’m an adult.
As I got older, I became ever more conscious of my scars. They’re very pale and noticeable when you look. But because they are on my legs, you wouldn’t necessarily know they were there unless you’re observing closely. But I do know they’re present and that does make me a little self-conscious.
So, ever since I can remember, I wanted to do something about my scars.
I’ve researched surgical options and I’m not afraid to admit that I’m scared of the option. So, I’ve been hoping that I can find a non-invasive alternative. I’ve heard a lot about Revitol Scar Cream and I don’t know, I guess I’m not that sure about it. But I was more than happy to give it a whirl.
To save you a step in deciding if this product might work for you, I’ve put together all of my research and personal experiences in one place for this comprehensive Revitol Scar Cream review.
So, What’s Revitol About?
For me, researching the products I use is a huge thing. I don’t like to just pick up a product and hope for the best. I need to know what it is, how it works and what it’s going to do for me! So to make sure that I’m giving an honest Revitol Scar Cream review here, I wanted to share the facts I uncovered with you all first.
Revitol has a whole bunch of products. But, as I’m sure you would already know, it’s their Scar Cream that I care about the most in this instance.
The first notable attribute of this scar cream that hooked me in further is that all of the ingredients are natural. I’m sure that I’ve used far too many products that are chemically enhanced and I’m not too sure how good that is for me. If you follow the beauty industry at all, you’ve probably noticed that the jury is still out on whether laboratory-produced ingredients are healthy or not. So I guess you can say that as of late, while we wait on scientists and doctors to figure everything out, I’m more than happy to be a little more natural when it comes to treating my skin.
Specifically, the Revitol Scar Cream has a blend of all natural ingredients that work with the skin to encourage its regenerative process. This sounds like the perfect thing to me. I have always hoped that my skin would do its thing naturally and I guess that was a little naive of me. I shouldn’t just hope that my skin would sort itself out without a little encouragement from me. However, at least during this research phase of my review, it seems like I might have found the perfect tool to make my innocent dreams into my reality.
So, here goes nothing. I’m finally feeling educated enough to try and help myself when it comes to treating my scaring. And, I’m really excited about using Revitol’s Scar Cream to try and do that!
And What Did You Think?
Well, I want to start by saying that at the time of writing this, I have been using Revitol’s Scar Cream for around 12 weeks now. I have been using it three times a day and being quite generous with the application.
With all skin care products, particularly those targeting specific blemish areas, consistency is extremely important. Even though these ingredients and formulas are powerful, they need high concentrations and time to do their job. Think about how often you apply lotion to your hands in the winter. Some of it will sink in, but then more of it will rub off, sweat off, or simply not absorb. This cream is the same.
I, like a few reviews I read, am a little unsure on the scent. I guess because the products are natural, you can’t always guarantee the loveliest of (chemically added) smells. But I have used a lot of natural products recently so not only was I kind of expecting this, but I don’t actually mind it. Surely it’s better to know that your products are naturally rather than stuffed full of artificialness. My guess is that in the long run, my senses will begin to react negatively to artificial scents and smells.
I also heard a lot of reviews unsure on the consistency of the cream, but, again, I don’t mind it. It goes on just fine for me and doesn’t seem all that hard to apply.
Other reviewers complained of burning sensations when putting this lotion on their body. I also can agree that it does sting a little when you apply it, but always see that as a good thing. I always hate when I use products and can never tell if they’re actually working on not. You get this odd but not unpleasant tingling feeling (or at least I do) on application, so I guess you can say it gets to work right away.
So, enough about the cream itself and on to what I’ve experienced.
So, enough about the cream itself and on to what I’ve experienced. So after around 4 weeks, I did start to see some improvement, but nothing major. I think it was more that the skin tone was evening out, but nothing too great. Then at around 8 weeks, it suddenly looked a lot better.
Not only was my overall skin tone around the scarring starting to look a lot better and blended but the scar tissue itself was also starting to come along quite nicely. The discolouration was improving and overall that made the scar itself look a lot better.
Now that it’s been around 12 weeks, I am definitely happy with the results. I have looked at how the tissue and skin itself has changed over the 12 weeks and it looks amazing. You can definitely see a difference and even though I can barely believe it myself, I am delighted.
Do You Recommend It?
I most certainly do. And while I can’t guarantee that you’ll have the same results that I do, all I can say is that if you’re in desperate need of some change, a trial is worth it. Plus, Revitol is also offering a great deal with their Scar Cream at the moment where you can get free products with your purchases, so it’s definitely worth taking up the deal!
All in all, I’m going to give this one a 5 out of 5. Not only has it given me hope, but it surpassed my expectations!
