StriVectin- My skin care of choice

It’s time for some Self Care with StriVectin Skin Care!

I was given the opportunity to try these products for review and here’s my honest feedback after 7 weeks of use. Unless I absolutely love something, I do not promote it. I always think of the “Mom/BFF Test” and ask myself “Would I buy or recommend these products for my mom or friends? ” and the answer is YES… I will be buying these for my Mom, sister in law, and friends!”  Click the link here to get the discount code and cute cosmetic bag with 7 products free with the purchase of $125 + , I hope you enjoy some friends and family discount as well! 

Before we start, I’ll give you a  little background on my skin and why I found these products worked really well for me. First and foremost, I am over 40 and have not taken the greatest care of my skin over the years.  It’s only been the last ten that I truly got diligent and educated myself on the harmful effects of skin damage and the importance of using great products and necessary preventative maintenance.

Let me reminisce just a few seconds here… I remember the 80’s well.  Hawaiian Tropic Oil, little bikini, laying out every day on the pier in the Carolina sun, baking my body in the heat all for the ultimate golden tan.  Burning my fair skin, applying baby oil over my face, tanning beds with accelerators!  You name it, I was dedicated to getting that deep dark tan for just about any event!  Does any of this sound familiar to any of you?

I’m certainly paying the price today. A few years ago, I had skin cancer, my first basil cell carcinoma removed from my chest.  There’s a nice scar to remind me of those 80’s days and how I wish I would’ve…should’ve…Well, let’s stop there because we can’t turn back the hands of time so let’s focus on what is here and now, GREAT PRODUCTS that help improve the look and feel of your skin, repairing skin damage, and make you look younger!

Here’s some great information on the science behind the products!

For decades StriVectin has been at the forefront of clinical innovation. Our science has been the subject of published research papers and our technology has been awarded over 90 global patents.

NIA-114™ is our patented, optimized form of Niacin/Vitamin B3 clinically proven to strengthen the skin barrier and supercharge the performance of other ingredients for visibly transformed, more youthful skin.

A high-functioning skin barrier is critical to maintaining strong, healthy-looking skin. Yet everyday skin’s outermost layer is susceptible to damage from environmental stressors, wear and tear, and the impact of biological aging, all of which weaken its essential protective abilities. NIA-114™ is clinically proven to strengthen the skin barrier, helping to protect skin from external stressors and inhibit water loss.


My morning routine starts with cleansing and the Gel Cushion Cleanser is the perfect start and smells so wonderful too! It cleanses thoroughly, without leaving my skin dry and I love that it contains Hyaluronic Acid, marine extracts, and aloe vera to leave skin soft and smooth.


“LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!! The 360* eye cream is incredible! I use it every morning and at night. and my eye area looks refreshed and tightened. I also love to keep it in the refrigerator! The bonus is the design of the applicator which is great for extra cooling straight from the fridge! 




The change in seasons and climate certainly affects my skin and I have had visible signs through the years. From dry skin to discoloration on my shoulders and chest.

“The red bumps on my chest and discoloration has dramatically changed after using the Neck Tightening cream.  The lines around my neck are much less visible” 

Also, try this Multi-Action Plumping Cream Mask  I use it twice a week for extra hydration. Drench skin in nourishing, superfruit-infused moisture. This creamy replenishing mask is powered by antioxidant-packed cloudberry and prickly pear extracts (two resilient adaptogens known to survive the harshest conditions) to help flood skin with intense moisture and promote lasting hydration. ” The plumping mask leaves my skin feeling like I just had a facial at the spa”

This Night Oil is my favorite of all the Strivectin products.  The first time I used this oil, I noticed how it didn’t make my face feel greasy. I also loved the scent and the fact that once again, a dual usage of Retinol is a bonus!

“I absolutely love how the S. T. A. R Retinol Night Oil! It leaves my skin feeling so soft and has helped with my dry patches on my cheeks.  I have used it every night for 7 weeks and it has not only smoothed my skin, I feel like I have a glow and I definitely see the fine lines are much less noticeable.”  


” Summer is here and…The Retinol Reimagined daytime moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is now my ONLY go-to for sunblock/moisturizer. I typically break out after using sunblock but haven’t had one tiny breakout after using this for the last 3 weeks” 



I have linked all the products and a link for you to pick some that may work best for your skin. Send me a message on what you think! I would love to hear from you!
