Looking and Feeling Healthy with StriVectin SD Advanced™ Concentrate: Review and Giveaway!!!

 Sponsored Post Affiliate Link Press Sample

 
Do you want your youth collagen back? Who doesn't, right?!?! It is never too late to take good care of your skin! I have a BIG birthday rolling around this year. Yes, I turn the big 4-0 this year (gasp!). While that number seems to signify the "end" of my relative "youth," it certainly does not mean that I need to look my age. ;) Now, more than ever, I am going to delve into the use of effective anti-aging products.

I believe in doing what I can to look as young and healthy as I feel! I believe that beauty and health start from the inside out. So, I do what I can to eat healthy, exercise, and take good care of my skin. I will admit, what I lack is sleep (I have a newborn! So, there is only so much I can do to improve my sleep situation). So, I really rely on good skincare to perk up my tired face. On the plus side, having young children sure makes me feel younger!

My Latest Discovery for Keeping My Skin Looking and Feeling Healthy:
StriVectin is a brand that I trust for effective skincare and results-based anti-aging products. I have had great results with them in the past and I am excited about a new product that I just started using from the brand: the StriVectin SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate for Wrinkles & Stretchmarks.

StriVectin SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate for Wrinkles & Stretchmarks
Product Description, My Thoughts, and How I Use:
This is a powerful and concentrated anti-aging treatment. I use it as I would a serum. The product itself is a dense non-greasy cream. I apply StriVectin SD Advanced in both the mornings and the evenings after washing my face. In the morning, I follow it up with my everyday moisturizer/SPF. In the evenings, I follow it with a lightweight moisturizer as my skin has been on the dry-side lately. If you have oily skin, you probably would not need an additional moisturizer after this product.

I adore the texture, feel, and scent of the product! It has a minty feel that is just lovely on the skin! So refreshing!!! I literally look forward to applying this product after cleansing my skin.

To find out more about StriVectin's SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate for Wrinkles & Stretchmarks, and to find out about the *Giveaway* please click "read more" below.



Key and Active Ingredients: How Does StriVectin SD Advanced Work?
So, what are the actives? How does this product work?

The SD Advanced Concentrate contains StriVectin's Collagex-CE Wrinkle Repair Complex which targets Collagen III or "youth Collagen" to help restore elasticity and dramatically reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
 
Did you know that there are actually 28 types of Collagen??? Who knew? Two of these types are in your skin: Collagen III (youth collagen) and Collagen I (found in scar tissue and older skin). When you are born your body has equal amounts of both of these collagens. However, as you age, the ratio shifts: you decrease to only 15% of Collagen III. So, your body lacks the lovely bouncy type of Collagen III and production of Collagen I cannot replicate that type of healthy and plump collagen-infused skin. So, the brilliant scientists at StriVectin realize that the key to keeping your skin looking young would be to rebalance the Collagen I and Collagen III levels. Makes sense! That is where StriVectin Advanced SD Concentrate comes in: it targets both Collagen I and Collagen III!
 
StriVectin SD Advanced contains StriVectin's famous NIA-114 technology. What does NIA-114 do? According to StriVectin, NIA-114 does the following:
  • Energize cells to maximize skin health
  • Strengthen and rebuild the skin barrier
  • Inhibit the impact of environmental aggressors
  • Multiply the efficacy of active ingredients
In addition to diminishing lines and wrinkles and targeting youth collagen, this SD Advanced Concentrate also lightly hydrates your skin, improves skin's texture, and strengthens your skin's barrier function to keep it healthy. Plus, this concentrate fights stretch marks! Now, I don't have stretch marks. So, I can't evaluate that claim. However, I am very happy with this product as an anti-aging treatment!
 
My Results: First Impressions Review: 
 
For this "First Impressions" review, StriVectin wanted me to evaluate and share my thoughts after 2 weeks of use. Typically, I test skin care products out for a longer period of time before reviewing. So, that is why I am calling this a "First Impressions" review.
 
I will admit that I was impressed with this product from my first use! I adore the texture of this product and the feel of this StriVectin SD Advanced Concentrate on my skin. I love that the product is non-greasy and I am completely obsessed with the minty feel of this product! Unlike many anti-aging products and treatments on the market, this product does not feel "heavy" on the skin. It feels completely fresh! Plus, I am happy to report that I have not experienced any breakouts while using this product. 
 
After a few days, I noticed that my skin really was looking plumper! Plus, my pores looked less noticeable! That was a result that I was not expecting but was thrilled to see!!! As I continue to use this product, my skin has consistently looked plump, my pores have been less apparent, and my fine lines and wrinkles have smoothed out and become less noticeable. Plus, I feel that my skin's tone has improved as well as its texture. My skin just looks and feels so soft and smooth! I am thrilled with my results and look forward to continuing to use this product as part of my everyday skincare routine.

Overall, I am impressed with this product and am very pleased with my results!

The claims interest me the most - I have deep smile and frown lines and a definite loss of elasticity - I'm always trying products that claim to improve these areas but have yet to find one that does.

The idea of my skin getting "plumper" and wrinkles smoothing out as a result is exactly what interests me.I've been searching for results like these for quite a while. I am 62 and I have been blessed with good skin, EXCEPT for the wrinkles that start on the sides of my mouth and head towards my chin! I've been trying lots of different serums and creams that say they will rid my face of those nasty wrinkles, but of course they don't.

I think I would be a good "before and after" candidate using StriVectin SD Advanced Concentrate. I know I will be buying this in the future, but winning it would be a wonderful thing!

As I just turned 50 last year and, believe it or not, I'm just starting to see smile lines around my eyes, I've been looking into something with more oomph. lol This product interests me for two reasons. 1. The brand is known for quality results and 2. Energize collagen? Yes, please. I'm looking forward to another review maybe in a few months? My e-mail is natorama99@yahoo.com Thank-you

I love that it strengthens and rebuilds the skin barrier. I use their cleanser but have never tried any other products. I really love the cleanser so I have no doubt this product is great.
