I received StriVectin skin care products to facilitate this review; all opinions are my own.
I’ve had the chance to try out a few products from StriVectin. This is a new brand to me, but they’ve been making skin care products since 2002 when they released their first product, a stretch mark cream. Since then, they’ve created products including a new cream, overnight facial resurfacing serum, and deep wrinkle serum.
The first product I sampled is their Present Perfect™ Antioxidant Defense Lotion. It’s a paraben free and non-comedogenic cream that’s formulated to nourish the skin and give it rich antioxidants.
It’s oil-free and fragrance-free, though it does have a scent that’s faintly reminiscent of a hairspray I used once. It’s subtle scent and probably only noticeable to people like me with an insanely good sense of smell.
It’s been created to make fine lines fade and skin look more youthful and radiant. I immediately noticed a distinct smoothness to my skin, almost as if I’d put a powder on it.
I enjoy the Present Perfect Antioxidant Defense Lotion so much that I rub any extra I might have after my facial application into the backs of my hands. It’s one place age is starting to show on me.
The StriVectin Present Perfect Antioxidant Defense Lotion is best used morning and evening on clean skin. Present Perfect Antioxidant Defense Lotion retails for $59
The second product I tried is their bestselling and award-winning StriVectin-AR Advanced Retinol Treatment for eyes (also available in a nighttime version). It’s a cream that will help fight the lines caused by dehydration and crow’s feet. It also helps with uneven texture (in my case crepey eyelids) and it helps firm up the entire eye area.
It’s used before makeup and works without the traditional Retinol issues like skin irritation, flakiness, sensitivity, and redness. In fact, I had no issues whatsoever with the cream and am enjoying the benefits. I use a tiny dot of the rich cream for both eyes and smooth it on very gently to prevent stretching the delicate eye area.
The science behind it can be found here: Combining StriVectin’s patented, scientifically proven NIA-114 molecule, this breakthrough Retinol cream harnesses the potency of Retinol, the gold standard in anti-aging, without the Retinol side effects – including skin irritation, peeling, redness and sensitivity.

Generally results are best at the 4-week mark and I’m not there yet. Plus I keep forgetting to use it. Since I only wear make-up occasionally now, I forget to use it on non-makeup days. I’m seeing improvements so I’m trying to remember to apply it.
