So I'm getting to the age where I need to start paying attention to my skin. Not that I didn't need to be paying attention all along, but lately things have been changing. I don't really have wrinkles, persay, but my forehead has a tendency to get wrinkly when I make certain facial expressions. Enter Strivectin SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate for Wrinkles & Stretch Marks. I've been testing this for 4 weeks now, and I'm a believer.
When I was first offered the opportunity to review this product, I actually wondered if I needed it. Me, still, you know, thinking I'm 20. In all honesty, I still feel 20 a majority of the time. I don't look like I'm 20 anymore (or at least I don't think so), but my mindset is 20 haha! So I kind of went into this expecting to have nothing to report. Was I wrong.
How does it work? The concentrate utilizes the power of Collagen III, otherwise known as 'youth collagen," to plump, renew and revitalize the skin in an little as 15 days. StriVectin found breakthrough technology to improve the wrinkle fighting benefits, and bring them about more quickly. This is great for anyone who wants to visibly diminish the look of lines and wrinkles and dramatically transform the look of their skin.
I don't have before and after pictures because it was difficult to capture. HOWEVER. It did work. Four weeks into using this product, and I refuse to go without it. I only use it on my forehead at this point, and I can really tell a difference. I use it morning and night, and even after 5 days, I noticed a difference. I couldn't even force my forehead to wrinkle. It's actually kind of amazing.

Now the price... it's a little expensive. You can get 2 ozs. for $79 on the StriVectin website. However, I'm a firm believer in it not being a waste of money if it works - and this stuff works for me. I've not tried it on stretch marks, so I can't attest to how well it works for that. But the way it worked on my forehead, I believe it's well worth the money, and I can see myself preemptively using this all over my face. :)
