Anti-Aging Experiment: StriVectin-SD

StriVectin-SD. I am sure you have seen the commercials, the ads, and possibly even the knock-offs. It is everywhere. The "better than botox" cream.

We could not wait to use Stri-Vectin in our experiment. Here is who gave it a try: Teri - 30 something, Laurie - 40 something, Brandie - 50 something, and Rose - 60 something.

From the StriVectin website, a description of how StriVectin-SD works:

stri.jpg"StriVectin-SD includes a proprietary complex of skin firming agents, elasticizers, and skin hydrators… adding up to the most comprehensive topical formulation shown to effectively confront virtually every aspect of visible stretch mark reduction.
A groundbreaking series of studies has demonstrated, without a doubt, the amazing effectiveness of StriVectin-SD’s® functional isolates. After reviewing and verifying the clinical data, an incredible 93% of subjects saw a signifigant, visible reduction in the appearance of stretch marks. The unequivocal, verified results speak for themselves. But there’s more. Clinical observations further document the ability of StriVectin-SD’s independent isolates to dramatically improve the appearance of: Indented surfaces, Smooth surfaces, Skin firmness, Irregularities in skin discoloration."



Our thoughts while using:

  • The cream is heavy, a little goes a long way
  • The aromatic oils, mostly of peppermint, are very strong. Use caution around the eyes, nose, and lips.
  • No other moisturizer is needed when using this
  • Apply it sparingly twice a day
  • Use it wherever you want results.

Makeup Remover To Go.

I'll take mine to go, thank you.

Sephora has a great line of smaller, more travel appropriate sized products to take with you. Whether on an overnight or in your gym bag, these To Go products are pretty perfect indeed.

FAC_emup.jpgI have been using the FACE Eye Makeup Remover To Go for a few weeks now. And I like it. I really like it.

This eye makeup remover is one of those two part removers, looking like an oil and water mix in the bottle. But, oily it is not.
