StriVectin Multi-Action Restorative Cream
StriVectin is a brand I've always loved. Their products have active ingredients that are great for your skin, helping keep wrinkles at bay and pores tight. They recently sent me the Multi-Action Restorative Cream to try and over the last couple weeks I've been putting it to the test.
The main purpose of this cream is to target the 12 main signs of aging. If you're like me, you're thinking - what the heck, there are 12 ways I can look old?! What the heck are they?! And for your information, they are: fine lines, wrinkles, density, firmness, sagging, texture, dehydration, dullness, discoloration, clarity, resilience, and enlarged pores. Phew... that's a lot of different aging signs to combat..
I use this cream as my finishing step in my skincare routine both day and night. It's has no scent at all, and has a very light, almost whipped texture. It sinks in to the skin without a trace. It's light enough that it sits well underneath makeup, but it's moisturizing enough that it can serve as your night time moisturizer. If you have really dry skin, you may need to use something on top of this to give you some extra moisture.
Unfortunately, StriVectin products tend to break me out a little bit (not as bad as other StriVectin products I've tried, fortunately), so I use this sparingly. I have sensitive, combination skin that is triggered easily, so it's not really a shock that introducing a new, potent product in to my skincare lineup disturbs the peace.
This cream will do a lot of good for your skin, but it will come at a cost. This stuff isn't cheap, retailing at a whopping $95. You can find it online at StriVectin.com or in stores and online at Ulta.
