StriVectin-SD-Intensive Repair

Overview  

 

StriVectin, owned by Klein-Becker, originally came to fame with the famous ‘Better than Cosmetic Injections?’ ads that ran all over the country.

How it works:

This particular product is intended to reduce the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles, as well as enlarged pores and stubborn imperfections.

The serum works by penetrating what is known as the dermal-epidermal junction of the skin. This is a very critical area in your skin’s architecture.

There, it is intended to stimulate specialized collagen, ‘decompressing’ the appearance of sharp creases in your skin.

Spotlight ingredients:

Yeast extract and hydrolized soy protein in this serum can help stimulate collagen synthesis.

It contains sodium polystyene sulfonate, which is a film former, and albumen, which is found in egg whites. These two can work together to temporarily tighten your skin.

Other ingredients include Glycerin which improves your skin’s hydration, and Dimethicone, which is a great emollient that promotes a smooth feel.

It also has ingredients that help brighten skin tone and relax areas of movement to smooth your skin.

One thing that jumped out at us is that the ingredient list contains ‘Tripeptide.’ The issue is there is no such ingredient that exists, unless it is followed by a number.

Other notes:

Overall, this is a water-based serum with a few good ingredients, but we think it can contain more. (Many people combine this with the StriVectin SD cream for a more comprehensive solution).

It can help reduce visibility of wrinkles, but we have not conclusively determined what it can actually do for other signs of aging. We’ve also found this serum to be good for different skin types.

Usage of this product is slightly different than with other serums, in that you have to wait 1-3 minutes after putting it on, and then apply a warm and damp facecloth to your face for 30 seconds. The heat of the facecloth is supposed to work in conjunction with the ingredients to activate them deeper into your skin. That’s pretty interesting, and it’s why StriVectin calls this a ‘thermophyillic’ serum.

    I love all of the Strivectin Products! My skin is much brighter, smoother, and very few wrinkles. At 65, this is wonderful. I am always told I do not look my age. It works well on dark spots. The hand cream for pulmping is the best! Great products!

    I used a whole bottle and could not see any difference at all. Several friends used it too and no results. Money wasted

    Was eager to try Strivectin and used the whole package of products until each was used up. While my skin was soft, I can’t say that my skin felt tighter or that any wrinkles were dramatically decreased in appearance.

    I’ve been using Strivectin for a few years and the results are great. When I switch to other products I see a negative difference. I highly recommend the whole line.

    Good stuff 🙂 I’m pretty young, have been looking for anti-aging products to keep my skin looking younger as I get older. My skin look soft and beautiful with it, and my skin feels tighter.

    I’ve found this works as a great quick-fix. Doesn’t do anything at least for me that’s permanent. I use it before going to parties or weddings.

    Strivectin helped my skin, though the process of using a warm washcloth for 30 seconds after every application was inconvenient.

    A salesgirl at Sephora gave me a sample, and I have been using it since. The lines on my face are less visible, pores are diminished, and my skin is smoother.

    I am a little upset with this product. I used a whole bottle and had a small decrease in some wrinkles, but the small results didn’t justify the cost.

    Saw a difference in a few days, and I will never be without this treatment! My laugh lines have diminished by about half. You only have to use a little bit to treat the whole face, which helps with the price of it.

    I use many Strivectin products, and found this to be very effective when you use their whole Deep Wrinkle Remedies Set which includes the wrinkle filler.
