Ever since I turned the Big 4-0, I’ve decided to fight, kicking and screaming against those terrible wrinkles. I did go to the dermatologist and asked them to write a prescription for Retin-A. I used it for about 3-4 months, but it really is too aggressive for my skin. (I do use Retin-A about once a week.) But, what I’ve found is that I like using StriVectin products simply because it’s not as tough on my skin and I’ve found a noticeable difference.

All products combine state-of-the-art anti-aging ingredients with StriVectin’s clinically proven NIA-114™ technology which is proven to help energize skin cells and strengthen the skin barrier for beautiful skin and improved skin health.
I received samples of StriVectin’s latest products and these are the beauty products I reach to morning and night, they are at my bedside table and when I travel.
Daily & Nightly
StriVectin® ARTM Advanced Retinol Day Treatment SPF 30 : this is by far my favorite product. I see a big difference in my skin, just being smoother and hydrated — without the peeling. It also does double-duty by protecting skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays with SPF 30. In clinical trials, StriVectin-AR Advanced Retinol Day Treatment performed better than prescription strength Retinolacross the key signs of aging without irritation. It’s also Paraben-free and non-comedogenic.
StriVectinLABS Extreme Cream is this super rich, but super lightweight moisturizing lotion that I use, specifically on my neck and upper chest area, which are places that need a lot of moisturizer and hydration, especially during the warmer months.
StriVectin® StriVectinLABSTM Weekly Glycolic Peel . So I use this on my upper thighs and belly because our second daughter was born at 9.5 lbs (and I’m 5’1″!!!), so I have a
few several stretch marks. This lotion re-energizes both forms of collagen (Types I and III) and elastin for a visibly improved complexion starting in just 15 days when used morning and night. I have been using this on-and-off daily and whenever I put it on my skin does tingle, which I like. I have seen some slight improvement in my stretchmarks, but it has been 6 years and supposedly, you’re supposed to get to stretchmarks within months of it forming, so I may be a little too late, but I’ll use whatever I can.
StriVectin® StriVectinLABSTM Weekly Glycolic Peel • StriVectin • is a two-step resurfacing treatment that helps give the appearance of younger looking skin. Step one is the Detoxifying Primer containing StriVectin’s patented age-fighting NIA-114™ technology which preps the skin for the second step which is the glycolic peel part. Step two is the AHA Activatorwhich contains 10% AHA Acid, which is the highest level that can be used in cosmetic products.
Basically what it does is that the glycolic and lactic acids slough away your dead skin cells so that your skin regenerates faster. Once I put both steps on, there is definitely a tingling and even stinging sensation, which to me, means it is working. After I rinsed it off, my skin was a little red in places, which again, to me is a sign that the glycolic peel worked. The redness faded away after an hour or so, so you can definitely use it a few hours before you go out at night.
