StriVectin-SD Power Serum for Wrinkles: Nice Results! (and special offer for you!)

As a BzzAgent, I recently had the opportunity to test out the new Power Serum for Wrinkles from StriVectin. This is my first experience with StriVectin and I am so impressed! I have been curious about this brand for quite awhile. So, I was very happy to test out this line and share the results!

StriVectin is a line with a results-based philosophy. StriVectin's "SD" products are formulated around their patented and proven NIA-114 (Niacin) molecule for reduction in wrinkles. NIA-114 was actually discovered during anti-cancer research. NIA-114 works to rebuilds the skin's barrier while it repairs skin damage and signs of aging in the skin. The StriVectin Power Serum contains not only the NIA-114 molecule, but also peptides and plant stem cells.

StriVectin's Clinical Trials:
As a research-based skincare line, StriVectin puts their products through clinical testing. StriVectin's testing is hard core! The line was founded on 25 years of research and is backed by over 30 global patents. The research studies are confirmed by medical research organizations. So, you can feel confident in their testing. Their studies on the Power Serum for Wrinkles revealed that 64% expressed that the formula worked better than the other anti-aging products that they have tried, 74% showed a reduction in the length of wrinkles, 64% had fewer wrinkles, and 74% showed a dramatic improvement in skin's luminosity.

My Skin Background:
While I do not have any major lines or wrinkles yet, I sure want to prevent them! As I am in my late 30's, I do have a few fine lines cropping up here and there. I find that they are more visible and apparent when my skin is dry and dehydrated. I rarely break out. Yet, it does happen. When I break out, it tends to be either on my chin or around my nose area. My skin is generally even toned; but, I do have a few stray dark spots remaining after pregnancy. My pores are particularly big (especially in the t-zone). My skin is sensitive and combination (drier in winter and more oily in t-zone in summer).

How did StriVectin's Power Serum for Wrinkles work for me? Keep reading to find out about my results and to find out about a Special Offer for You!


StriVectin's Power Serum for Wrinkles:
My skin seems to really love this serum! After testing for about 4 weeks, I really seem improvements in my skin.
The Packaging:
StriVectin's packaging is incredibly basic aesthetically. Actually, I find these products to be packaged to look like topical prescription medication. Just the basics: White bottle, black lettering, and some pink accents. The packaging is completely no-frills. The Power Serum for Wrinkles is in a pump tube. Two pumps give just the right amount of product for my whole face.

Specific Product Claims from StriVectin:
In a nutshell, here are the claims from the brand:
  • Clincially proven to reduce the length, width, and number of wrinkles. 
  • Includes the NIA-114 molecule to help repair skin damage.
  • Contains potent elastin-stimulating peptides to help enhance skin structure and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. 
  • Infused with plant stem cells to help detoxify skin and shield it from environmental stressors. 
  • Includes a higher concentration of actives, making it more potent and effective than moisturizing creams.
  • Penetrates deep and absorbs quickly.
What results might you see from this product? StriVectin claims the following:
Two weeks of daily use:
  • Boosts skin's natural luminosity
  • Optimizes Clarity
Eight Weeks of Use:
  • Reduces the length, width, and number of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Diminishes the look of pores
  • Helps overall complexion to appear more luminous and youthful
This all sounds great; but how does the product work for me?
How I Use:
I apply this serum in the mornings and the evenings after washing my face and before moisturizer or sunscreen. Most days I find that I do not even need an additional moisturizer after applying this serum! I find that the serum is non-greasy. The serum itself feels like a gel-type moisturizer. It absorbs fast and does not leave me looking shiny nor do I feel a residue. The serum has a unique scent. It took me awhile to place it at first. Then it hit me. The smell reminds me of self-tanner! No, it is not as strong as the self-tanning smell; but, it is similar.

I found that this serum has the immediate result of helping to smooth out and plump my skin by keeping it more hydrated. I really did not need an additional moisturizer with this product. However, I always follow it with sunscreen in the morning. I feel like my makeup applies better over this product because my skin is so smoothed out.

After using this product for 4 weeks, I really noticed a great improvement in the appearance of my pores! They are much less noticeable overall. It is like my pore size shrunk. I am quite impressed! Since I do not currently have wrinkles, I can't determine if this product helps with wrinkle reduction. However, my fine lines look smoothed out near my eye area. So, I am happy with that result. Also, my skin's texture feels very soft and smooth.

I wonder if my dermatologist in long island would allow me to use this. It seems like a safe product, I guess.
