Revia Hair Color Cream [Review]

Jan 23, 2018 | Beauty & Fashion | 25 comments

Coloring your hair is a fast way to change your look.

I started coloring my hair way back in high school. I used Bigen, wherein during that time was the most popular among other brands. As far as I remember, they sell for less than a hundred bucks. They were in a small packaging with a Geisha (a Japanese female entertainer) printed on it. Back then, I colored my hair twice in a year. My favorite shades are Mahogany (a reddish brown shade) and dark brown. Years have passed, I’ve tried different brands. But once in a while, I go to salons.

Since salon fees are quite expensive, I go there whenever I feel like I deserve a little treat lols. My last salon’s hair color was done by Glamsquad located in Timog. They colored my hair in ash gray and I love how my hair turned out. That was two years ago hahaha.

Very timely when Revia sent me some boxes for me to try out. My hair needs a little TLC lols. I got in the shade No. 5 Dark Blonde.

Revia Hair Color by Verona

The box contains the following:

  • 1 tube of hair color cream  (50 ml / 1.69 fl. oz.)
  • 1 bottle with an activating emulsion (50 ml / 1.69 fl oz.)
  • 1 sachet of nourishing lotion (20 ml / 0.67 fl. oz.)
  • 1 pair of plastic gloves
  • 1 instruction leaflet

How to use:

  1. Preparation of dyeing emulsion. Squeeze out the content of the tube with the coloring cream into the bottle with the activating emulsion. Thoroughly mix the mass until a uniform consistency is achieved. After preparing the mixture, break off the applicator’s ending and put the mixture on your hair.
  2. Hair dyeing. Put the mixture on your hair highlights after highlights. Comb your hair to cover them regularly. Leave the mixture for 25-35 minutes.
  3. Dyeing of growing hair. In case of dyeing growing hair leave it for 20 minutes, then comb your hair on the whole length and leave it for next 10 minutes.
  4. After dyeing. When the mixture stops working, wet your hair and massage it softly until foam appears. Rinse your hair until the water is clean and use a shampoo to wash it. To stabilize the dyeing effect, use a conditioner. Leave it for 5 minutes and rinse it.

Here’s my before and after 2 weeks photo!

Sorry, been busy AF during the holidays that I wasn’t able to take a photo of my hair right after the application. But it was way darker than the photo (after) below. I guess the color already washed out (except the top part) when I took this photo. 

What I like about:

  1. Instructions are easy to understand.
  2. Comes with a pair of gloves.
  3. Has a good color payoff.
  4. Easy to rinse.
  5. My hair feels soft after the application.

What I don’t like:

  1. Has this strong scent that irritates my eyes. So be careful when applying along the hairline.
  2. Color (on some parts) only lasted for two weeks.

Overall, it’s not the best out in the market but a nice product to try out. If you are looking for something that is convenient to use and within your budget, you should definitely try this.

Revia Hair Color Cream is only available at Watsons for 285php/box. Follow them on for more details.

    It’s not great that the color only lasted for two weeks. That doesn’t make it a great products to be honest. I am dying my hair since highschool as well and I am used with the color to last at least for a month. I am always going for red, so I need to color it more often, but I never do it more often than once every 6 weeks.

  2. Tara Pittman

    I always color my hair at home. I just don’t want to spend the big bucks at the salon.

  3. Linda

    We don’t have this brand here in the UK but I always find home colouring so messy and time-consuming. I’d rather save up and have the hairdresser do it – but I appreciate that’s not always possible when you’re on a budget.

  4. Sarah Bailey

    I love how it seems to have add multiple tones to your hair you often don’t seem to get that from a box dye. I may just have to check this one out.

  5. Daria

    Your hair looks fresh and pretty, well done. I am unfortunately trying to maintain blonde shade and have to do it professionally.

  6. Bona

    Hi Mhaan! The color looks good on you! 🙂
    I am afraid to say that I haven’t tried dyeing my hair yet, so I don’t know the experience. 😉

  7. Betty Davies

    Thank you for such an honest review! Your hair looks gorgeous and healthy!

  8. Ada

    What a bummer that the color didn’t last longer but I do like that it is easy to use.

  9. Wendy Polisi

    It came out so even! I need to try this stuff!

  10. Michi

    I colored my hair when I was in High School then marami na rin naggayahan so pinagbawal sa school. hehehe! Then I tried it again when I was in college nung nauso naman highlights. Then I became a mom and hindi ko na naulit, pero matry nga, mura lang pala yung Revia.

  11. Ruthie Ridley

    Great review!! Your hair looks so awesome!!

  12. Hannah Marie

    I absolutely LOVE this color on you! Revia sounds like a great brand and I may just have to pick some up and give it a try (because it sure beats going to the salon and paying all that money!)

  13. Neri Ann

    Kakakulay ko nga lang din ng buhok. Ang gamit ko lang lage ung sa hbc. Never tried ko pa tong product na to.

  14. Marissa Zurfluh

    I would love to dye my hair with this stuff. Your hair came out so great!

  15. Sheri

    I have never coloured my hair before. In order to change my look, I try different hairstyles and hair lengths for something new.

  16. Jennifer L

    Wow dont think Ive ever heard of Revia before. However, I really love the color and lightness of your after shots.

  17. Andrea

    Your after picture looks great! My mom frequently dyes her hair, so I will recommend this to her!

  18. Mommy Jhy

    It doesn’t sound great that the color changed after 2 weeks. Well, I guess it’s cheaper than other brands? Anyway, color looks good on you.

  19. corinne & kirsty

    I had never heard of this brand before. I am a bit wary of hair coloring. I tried once and my hair was super damage. Your color after looks amazing!

  20. Angela Ricardo Bethea

    This is my first time to hear this brand and it looks so great. Your hair color turns beautiful in Revia hair color product. I will definitely check this out.

  21. Fatima Torres

    I’ve never heard of this brand before, but it yields great results. I really like this color on you

  22. Aduke Schulist

    I have only ever had my hair colored at a salon once. I always do it at home. I’m long overdue to cover my greys.

  23. Angel Caronongan-Enero

    I haven’t tried coloring my own hair. Will try this brand. Mas mura magcolor ng sariling hair and I think more comfy.

  24. Jelena

    You’re really looking for a new hair color. It’s not a big difference from the old color but it’s really refreshing.

  25. Trang Trang

    Your hair looks great! I’m looking for products that can keep my hair coloured for a short period so your post is really helpful. Thanks for sharing
