StriVectin Skincare

StriVectin First Impressions

Up until my 30s, I really ignored my skincare and even now two years on I find getting into a good routine hard. Perhaps due to the fact, I just want to fall into bed with minimum effort come to the end of the day, thanks to how fatigued I feel. However, I have also suffered from spots since I hit puberty, which for me started at 9 or 10 years old, meaning for over 20 years I've had bad skin. I am also an ex-smoker, with combination skin and a whole lot of scarring, thanks to both the acne and my own hand. So my skin hasn't been given an easy ride.

With that in mind whenever someone offers me the chance to try something new I am always up for the challenge and when StriVectin good in touch to ask if I would like to try out there best selling facial skincare products I, of course, answered yes.

StriVectin First Impressions

StriVectin Skincare First Impressions
This post, as you might have realised from the title, is all about introducing you to these three products. I will, in three weeks, then follow it up with a more in-depth review on how I feel they have been working given a longer time to try them.

Created by skin care experts these three products have 35 years of experience behind them and all use StriVectins breakthrough NIA-114.
NIA-114 has been scientifically proven to reinvigorate skin surface, while helping strengthen and nourish the skin.

StriVectin Advanced Resurfacing.

To start of I thought I would introduce you to the Advanced Resurfacing mask. This is a 5 minute, 1 step exfoliating mask. Which is said to help exfoliate for smoother and softer skin, while helping diminishes the look of fine lines and brightening the skin.

Usage is simple, 2 – 3 times a week you want to just apply a generous layer of the light peach paste, leave for 5 minutes and then rinse away with warm water.

First impressions of this mask for me are good, while this uses glycolic acid (perhaps one of the most talked about acids when it comes to skincare) and is fast acting it still seems quite a gentle mask to use on the skin. When it comes to scent it is light and pleasant, though I couldn't really tell you what the scent reminds me of. For anyone wondering on the other key ingredients, they include; Evening Primrose Oil and of course NIA-114.

StriVectin Advanced Hydration.

The Advanced Hydration is the first of two items in this line up you are going to be using daily (and hopefully twice daily at that). This time you are looking at it containing Hyaluronic Acid, alongside Ceramides and HIA-114.

StriVection Advanced Hydration includes two chambers, which mix together to become one serum when you pump it out. The first chamber includes six unique forms of hyaluronic acid, which are said to help plump the skin, with results that can be both instant and sustained.

After short term use of this serum, my first impressions are good. It uses Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer which is something not everyone likes, it gives the serum it's silky smooth finish and helps lock in moisture. The issue some people have is that it creates a film over the skin which can of course lock in the bad as well as the good. However if you make sure to wash your face well first and apply to the skin with clean fingers, you shouldn't have an issue.

StriVectin Advanced Recovery.

This is the second item to be used twice daily and is a light weight milk, which can be used as a serum and is to be applied before moisturiser. I've found that if you are going to use the milk and serum together then milk first is the best approach for me. However, it is also suggest that you use the serum in the AM and milk in the PM if you wish to use them at different times.

This time we are looking at the product including Oleic Acid, alongside peptides and NIA-114 as the key ingredients. As with all three of these products everything used is well known and all has long standing support behind it to show it works.

The Advanced Recovery milk comes with an inbuilt dropper to hopefully help you not over use the product (we can hope anyway) and is made to help soothe dry skin while helping restore a more youthful appearance.

I have to admit from first impressions the milk is my favourite out of the three so far, as it is so simple to use. However, I will of course be interested to see how my views change over the coming weeks.

So there you have a little about the three items that make up the Amazing Acids Set, I am looking forward to seeing how the next few weeks play out and of course getting to report back to you on how I found them.

What do you think of the sound of these products from StriVectin? Do any of them in particular catch your eye as something you would like to try?

    Sounds like a good product. I like reviews from “real” people as opposed to the company telling me how wonderful it is.

  2. Alli Smith

    I would love to try them all and I’m looking forward to another review in a few weeks. I have dry skin and I’ve been searching for the best skincare products.

  3. candy

    Wish I had taken better care of my skin when I was younger. Know what you mean by just wanting to fall into bed at the end of the day. This skin care routine sounds wonderful and something I would like to try out on my skin.

  4. Amber

    I would give these a try. I’m always looking for something that helps my skin out. I am starting to get wrinkles and it can get dry, so I’d love to find something that can help with that.

  5. bohemianbabushka

    Glad you started taking care of your skin. Babushka started when she was 30 and now at 55 the wrinkles are still at bay. Curious as to how these products would work on “mature” skin… BB2U

  6. Melissa Chapman

    I try so hard to keep my skin and face in its best shape. I go to dermatologists very often but my at home treatments could probably be improved with these serums and hydration.

  7. Jade Bremner (@saywhatjade)

    I’m not very good at keeping to a skincare routine so I never buy anything as I get a build up of products from Xmas and birthdays. Then again I don’t really have anything wrong with me skin either.

  8. A S,Edinburgh

    Fascinating. I do like to keep an eye out for new products, and this range is definitely one for the list.

  9. Carol Cassara

    They all sound like amazing products and I love that they’re also good for sensitive skin. I think these would be nice to have.

  10. Kayleigh Watkins

    They sound fantastic if they work, I also suffer with acne, blotchy red skin and scarring from spots, so il be keeping an eye out for your follow up post xxx

  11. Marcie W.

    I am definitely intrigued by the StriVectin line! I have very dry skin and the Advanced Hydration seems to be exactly what I need.

  12. Destany

    I have used the earlier incarnations of Resurface, and I loved it! StriVectin makes great products that really work.

  13. Prachi

    This was awesome to read! I suffer from acne prone skin and my skin was really clear during my teen years but in the past two or three years I’ve developed some acne on my cheeks. Adult puberty I guess – it really never stops does it? I use the CosRx Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer and I definitely find it makes a difference! My scarring has improved quite a bit in just the past month or so of using it. I also really like the Klairs Vitamin C Serum for acne scarring and brightening. It makes my skin feel SUPER moisturized too!

    I’d love to try the Strivectin Exfoliating Mask though! I’m always on the look out for a good exfoliator and usually I stick to facial scrubs rather than masks, since chemical exfoliants tend to break me out a lot!

  14. valmg @ Mom Knows It All

    I had acne when I was young and it made me miserable. I’ve never tried anything like these as my skin care routine is minimal as I have naturally oily skin that keeps it fairly supple and young looking.

  15. Joan Cajic

    This is interesting, I have started getting into skincare and trying to chase the years before they decide to catch up with me lol.

  16. Nisha

    sounds like an amazing product. thank you for sharing the info 🙂

  17. Peter

    This would be great for my wife. Who am I kidding? These would be great for both of us! I am so on the lookout for your more in depth review about these. You can never keep your skin too healthy

  18. GlamKaren

    Sounds like my kind of skin care! I’ve never tried this brand before and I really appreciate you sharing your experience about it. It does sound like they have great products!

  19. Bonnie G

    I’m the same way as well, I never really took care of my skin until my 30’s. These products sound like something I would like to give a try.

  20. Heather

    I find that if I don’t take my make-up off first thing in the evening when I get home, I will fall asleep with it on. Which is terrible for your skin. My skin is sensitive so I find I’m nervous about anything that is labeled an acid.

  21. Michelle Christie

    It makes such a big difference when you take care of your skin. I love that this is quick — 5 minutes. You can work it into your routine easily. I will be trying it.

  22. Shelley

    Sounds like a great product. One of my best things for my skin is sunscreen

  23. Everyday Made Fresh

    Sounds like a great product. It’s really great that you found something that works for you. I find that skincare is never a one fits all type thing, so when you find something that works, stick with it!

  24. Robert Price

    I need all the help I can get

  25. Tina Hogan Grant

    I have psoriasis and have used the same product for over 25 years. Making a change would be difficult but this looks really good.

  26. shraddha tripathi

    I think its a great product. Heard for the first time. Would like to try it once.

  27. Sondra Barker

    Wow they sound like great products. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on these! I’ll have to check them out.
    Xo, Sondra

  28. Peter Nyiri

    I haven’t really paid much attention to skincare, even though I should, my skin is a bit dry and it can flake when I wash it. Thanks for the review!

  29. Becky Jarratt

    The mask catches my eye the most. Since I turned 40 I feel my skin has changed, and reducing fine lines would be great!

  30. Margaret Gallagher

    Sounds lush
    Might try this out
    We all need a helping hand to look fab

  31. Sandy N Vyjay

    The first impressions of Strivectin look promising. What I like is the fact that this looks so convenient to use without undue hassles. Will be looking out for your updates based on your use and results.

  32. Gingermommy

    Anything that actually works to reduce fine lines and wrinkles is ok by me. The mask stood out most to me, it may be something I have to try.

  33. Terri Steffes

    I have heard of StriVecTin and have heard good things. I am interested to hear your take after using it for a while. I find that I will see good results immediately and then taper off.

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey

      It’s nice to be doing it this way as it means people know I really have it a good try with the big gap in between the post! I’m hoping it goes well!

  34. Samuel frodo

    Nothing beat a sincere review.. This seemseems like a great. product

  35. Heather

    Aside from sunscreen, I haven’t done much to take care of my skin either. I definitely should get into a better routine as I’m starting to notice things feeling differently as I age. This looks like a great product for me.

  36. Yeah Lifestyle

    I am so glad you have started taking care of your skin especially with all the problems you had when you were growing up. I guess its never too late. StriVecTin sounds like a good skin care range to care of your skin.

  37. rhianwestbury

    They sound like great products although I am like you and would rather just fall into bed than do a proper skincare routine x

  38. Kara

    I am terrible at skincare, particularly at night. Good that this is getting you into a routine though

  39. Nikka Shae

    I would love to try this product. I’m finding myself taking better care of my skin.

  40. Danielle

    When I turned 30 I started to care a lot more about my skin and a skin routine. I will have to check out these products.

  41. Bethany

    It’s so nice to hear an honest review about skin care products, there are so many out there that sometimes you have no idea what to go for.

  42. Hannah Marie

    I am the same. Sleep is much better than skin routine. But I know it’s not good so I need to change it. Would love to try these products.

  43. Adaleta

    Oh this sounds interesting. I will have to check this out for myself.

  44. Terri Ramsey Beavers

    After a horribly dry and harsh winter, I’m looking to improve my skin’s hydration. I’ll have to see how this brand works compared to the last brand I tried which I’ve just run out of.

  45. Ophelia T

    These sounds great. I would love to try them. Thanks for sharing.

  46. Veronica Lee

    I would love to try these. I really appreciate the honest review

  47. terence mealing

    sounds good

  48. Vicky hallnewman

    It will be interesting to see the results in a few weeks time. I prefer a serum to a cream as it feels like you get a more intense coverage and they soak into my skin so much better. Looking forward to the next blog post.

  49. Ruth I

    How I wish I could bring back my youthful glow without breaking the bank.

  50. Rachael

    I like the sound of these and looking forward to reading about how you get on with them. I’m rubbish at keeping up a skincare routine!

  51. Laura Dove

    Oh these sound great! I didn’t look after my skin very much at all back in the day, I really regret that!

  52. lavandamichelle

    These look like some great products! I’d love to try these. Thanks for sharing.

  53. Mo

    I like the sound of the StriVectin Advanced Resurfacing product as other masks tend to take longer (e.g. 15 minutes or more), so this would be ideal
