I’ve a couple of product reviews in line especially on some of the products I’ve loved for a long time. But those have to wait. Because I MUST blog about this first! Actually I’m so excited about it, I can barely contain my excitement now.
This is the product touted as better than botox. While I’m skeptical with that comparison, I’m very much convinced that StriVectin-SD is excellent for reducing fine lines, improving the condition of dry skin and perhaps stretch marks as well.
You see, I applied the cream on a patch on the back of my left hand earlier this week and I saw instant smoothing. It was miraculous! Even after washing my hands, I could still see that patch of skin glowing slightly. It was unbelievable. But the cynic in me wasn’t convinced. I decided to do another test today on my right hand this time. Guess what. The same thing happened. I just bathe and I tell you, that patch of skin which was applied with the cream is indeed smooth and glowing. Amazing! And the skin around that patch looked dull in comparison.
As excited as I am, I haven’t bought the product though. Anti-climax? I know. Reason is because I just bought some new products and I’ve more or less bust my budget. The other reason is I’m not certain if I will use this cream on my face. Even though I’m quite convinced it’ll moisturise the skin, I’m a bit worried that it might be too rich. I have read reviews that this cream has caused some breakouts in some women and hence is hesitant. But I do want to try it on my body and especially on my stretch marks. However, at $169 for a 59.15ml tube, it seems a tad lavish to be used for that purpose. For the moment at least.
Anyway, you might like to know that this cream was originally developed to reduce the appearance of existing stretch marks, but later found to be effective in diminishing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and crows’ feet. It includes a propreitary combination of skin firming agents and has been scientifically proven to be far more effective than retinol and vitamin C at skin firming.
The product is now available at Guardian, Tangs and Sasa. You can also check out details at www.strivectin.com/sd/index.php.
