not moisturizing enough might say dry patches also but for sure it gives youth cant compare with other peptide etc products cause I didnt use so many but this is certainly effecting on youth how much it may be discussed but for me at 33 it is enough

Used the Original StriVectin and liked the product. Seems the company/manufacturer today are different than those that created this brand. The new manufacturer claims the formula is improved, yet for me, it is not effective as the original. Hence, I've moved on.

This irritated the heck out of my Rosacea prone skin. Do not do it if you're sensitive. I still like the sd eye cream though.

LOL-I use this on my neck and it has really reduced the "tree trunk" lines. Since this is the strongest formulation thus far, and got it really cheap on amazon I am a happy camper! Also works on fine lines on upper lip and kind of makes the upper lip line more defined. This one is a keeper.

I purchased my second bottle tonight, so clearly I feel that it has worked for me. I'm a very dark skinned black woman with post pregnancy, hip & buttock stretch marks. I like that this product is easy to use and a little goes a long way. I apply it at least twice, sometimes 3 times daily. It has most DEFINITELY improved the texture of my skin. The grooves in and around each stretch mark seems to be smoother, less of a pit. It has also reduced the length of my older stretch marks. The skin that I've applied it to looks a lot more even & moisturized.
In addition to my body, I use it on my face. It moisturizes my oily acne prone face well & seems to improve my acne and blemishes. Whenever I use it each night faithfully, I've noticed a decrease in breakouts & inflammation.

This works .IAm using the original product ,and have stocked up on it .i thing the new version might not be as good I have never tried it but the reviews look as if the new product might not have the same ingredients.

I have fine lines on my forehead and the skin on the sides of my nose started to get a little bit saggy. I was expecting this moisturizer would help to boost the collagen and firm these areas. After using two tubes of this product, twice daily on most days, I see no results. I am a little disappointed. Not sure if I need to try it for longer to see the results. However I will continue to use it because it moisturizes well and it's not greasy. I got this at a discounted price from Marshall's.

This is a great anti aging product and I am shocked by the bad reviews, I can only imagine that they have not used it for long enough. I have used many many things, Vissionaire, Collagen, Retinol and the Strivectin SD is the best, it is the only thing that really does make my skin look younger. I use it in conjunction with an exfoliator, collagen cream and weekly retinol.
I am 33 and I have good skin, but live in Australia so have taken my fair share of sun damage, this refines, makes the pores smaller, takes away blemishes and creates an excellent moisture balance, it made my skin seem more dense and elastic and yes, it has started slowly to take away the stubborn beginnings of very fine lines that nothing else, not even 6 months of intensive retinol has been able to touch.
A great product.

This is a review for the StriVectin SD Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks.
I have stretch marks on my inner upper thighs, inner lower thighs, and upper calfs. It's embarrassing.
BUT, this product is amazing. I have to admit, I didn't really expect to work at all, but I took my chances.
And, what do you know, it WORKS. On the back of the tube it says to apply it 2-3 times a day, and that it's not for those under 18. Well, I'm under 18, and it still works.
It just says to apply it 2-3 times daily for a few weeks for it to kick in, and to apply it minimally as it's a concentrated product.
So that's precisely what I did for 3 consecutive weeks. My stretch marks are already probably 50% gone by now. I'm so happy!
The key was patience. This isn't an overnight product. Try it for 2-3 months. If it doesn't work by then, then throw it out.
The retail price is $135 for a 5 oz. tube. I ended up purchasing a 6 oz. tube for $40 on eBay, excluding the $4 shipping. And, yes, it's authentic.
Would I repurchase? Yes.

I likewise am surprised with the really poor reviews for this product. If I could I would give this product a 3.5, B average grade but overall I feel it leans more towards a 4 than a 3. The full price of this product is ridiculous ($100USD or so?) If I am going to spend that much for a skin treatment, it better do wonders. The wonderful thing about this, is I was able to find it discounted for $30 so I was game to give it a go!
I will say that I like it, and I definitely saw results. I used it on my inner thighs, and hip area where I have red/purple stretch marks. This cream is not a product "nothing can beat it" godsend, but it helped my marks fade in a fraction of the time! They are still noticeable but considerably less so and the skin in those areas is much smoother than it was before. I am pleasantly surprised and would absolutely recommend this product! Two issues I have are the packaging-could be better redesigned especially for the market price and the ingredients- a scary list of chemicals and things that honestly make me uneasy despite its effectiveness.
Should you try it? If you have problem areas you want quickly addressed I would say yes, but don't use it excessively once you see results. And don't, don't, don't pay full price for it if you can avoid it.

This product works as a serum in my face , it repairs my skin tone, blmishes, and almost any issue i have with my skin.
The smell is a bit weird but i got used to.
After 2 weeks using it loyally, my skin looks and feel healthy dark spots from blemishes are gone expression lines are much more dimished.. this cream works better than La Prairie Cellular. But it's too pricy 90$ for 60ml ... For better results combine it with the strivectin scrub , with this 2 products together my skin looks healthy and radiant ............Try it if you find it on a bargain

I'm really surprised at the many negative reviews. I find this to be a great product. I am in my mid 30's and just starting to see those fine lines... strivectin has really eliminated them. It did take 5 or 6 weeks (I use it religiously twice daily) but I definitely see results!
As for the price, I get 150ml here for approximately $135 (you can find it cheaper I bet). But it does last six months or so.. so that is a little over $20/month. Personally I think that is a pretty reasonable price.

Ok 1st off, "better than Botox"...(never tried Botox) Maybe only in the sense that its better than having a toxin injected into your FACE! That said, I bought this from Ross at $30/tube and I'm loathe to part with my money so thats a leap of faith for me, but I read the reviews here and thought ok, I'll bite. I always try strong products on inconspicuous areas because the LAST thing I want is to wake up and go to work with a mess of a face, but I thought, why would I put it on an average patch of skin with no problems? So I put it on this scar I got from a nasty friction burn on the bend of the forearm (seemed a sensitive enough area) it kind of burned at first so I got a little scared but the sensation faded in 10 mins. Its a year old scar and let me tell you, after a week, I saw a 50% improvement! BUT it stopped there after almost 3 weeks. I'm not the kind of person to imagine improvement, and I better see one or I'll never buy again. IT WORKED! Even my hubby who's a naysayer on everything had to admit it made a real difference (he still argued that something that worked so well HAD to cause cancer...kill joy). It lightened the scar dramatically. I put it on THREE TIMES A DAY RELIGIOUSLY for almost 3 weeks. Its not gone, I can still see it, but it doesn't peeve me like it used to. That said, I started using it on my face and no burning just a minty tingle. Now when I was in my early teens I had a sprinkling of freckles across my nose that was cute...yeah, at 30 not so much because its now a liberal helping that has dusted my cheeks and sides of my temples (I'm asian/hispanic but I blame my mom because as she's gotten older and been exposed to the sun, its done the same to her skin. Must be an asian thing) Either way, sun, aging and birth control (WATCH OUT for this crap ladies, if you've never heard of the 'pregnancy mask'...BE AFRAID, BE VERY AFRAID. You COULD develop this nasty permanent side effect on bc) they've all taken their toll on my skin. I have been using Strivectin on my face now for a couple of weeks, it's lightened my pregnancy mask/age spots by I'd say 10-20% but that's about it. the overall condition of my skin is not a whole lot better but its not worse. Bottom line, its awesome that it worked so well on my scar but I would've been PISSED if I spent full price on a tube of stuff that did such a limited amount of improvement on my face. Also I have some very fine lines near my eyes and NO it did not make a dent in them. As a scar cream it kicks butt and so I'm giving it a 3 but as a wrinkle or age spot diminisher, it doesn't warrant spending that kind of money or spending it again. I'll keep using it on my various scars but beyond that, I'm not buying it again for anything else or for full price.

There is no comment page for strivectin facial sculpting cream, but i want to bitch to the world anyways. I paid nearly 100 bucks for this product. It's a very poor moisturizer and smells odd. I noticed it sloughed off a little skin and made me flaky: don't use it before applying makeup! So I started only using it at night, but eventually had to use a proper moisturizing product over top of it just to wake up moisturized. As for the magic, it never came. It was a shitty product all the way, and I wouldn't buy it again if it was 5 bucks. I have switched to Vichy liftactiv now, and am very pleased with it's performance at half strivectin's price! Don't get suckered into trying this waste of time!

I am reviewing the Strivectin scrub and serum. The scrub has beads so it's easy on the face but has an odd medicinal smell. I don;t think it's anything special and not worth the price. The serum only looks like it adds radiance but I think that's due to a coloring agent that soon fades. After using that up in about 3 months, I can say w/o question, not worth the price.

Before I found MUA reviews I was suckered by
mag reviews. On their glowing reviews I laid out more
$$$ than ever before on a face cream. I bought the 2 tube
special at Costco. What a total waste of money.
I tried it for a month faithfully & NO difference even
in fine lines. It did increase my redness but no breakouts as
Now I'm stuck with another 4 oz tube.

This is too expensive for too little results. I've been using this for months on my sensitive, fair skin. I was a little shocked when I opened the tube and the smell of peppermint oil hit me. I tried it anyway, and luckily it didn't break me out, but it did not improve my skin.
In fact, I think it made it a little more red and I noticed my fine lines are a bit more pronounced (I think it has a bit of a drying effect, even though I mixed a pea size amount with my moisutrizer at night).

I used almost everything you possibly could on my skin. I still love raw honey, however, I just detected my first wrinkles. Always had pretty deep mouth to nose creases and hated them. I bought the new 8 percent version of stivectin sd and love it. At first I broke out and almost stopped (so did my boyfriend whom I put it on as well). Thankfully I didn't stop and my pores are invincible, my "marionette" creases filled and the few wrinkles I had gone. Just bought the second tube (got a deal on ebay, two 4ounce tubes for 80 bucks) and can't wait to continue. I am very pleased with the look, feel and everything else Strivectin delivers. Will use it forever. Highly recommend it for acne prone skin and wrinkles.

I got a generous sample of this, and since I donít have serious wrinkles, I used this on my stretch marks instead. I actually have more stretch marks from puberty (sides of my hips) than from pregnancy (tummy). After about ten days of consistent use, I did notice that the ends of some stretch marks, mainly the newer ones from my last pregnancy (though that child is now three-and-a-half), were softened, but overall, the effects were minimal and not worth the price tag. I have also used Medermaís Stretch Mark Cream and think it works better than this.

Don't buy this product! It did nothing for me. I was suckered in because I wanted to buy expensive face cream, and they had a dumb ad which read, "Better than Botox?" A question, but no connection with results. It's basically a thick cream, which did nothing but break out my skin.
