40-ish skin & a $100 giveaway
Though I appreciate the added wisdom and perspective I’m gaining as I get older, I can’t say I feel the same about the changes in my skin. My hubby, bless his heart, looked at this picture of me and said I’ve hardly changed since we first met when I was 17. But I see the changes in myself and can’t help but wish that wrinkles didn’t come along with wisdom.
When I was asked if I’d be game to review StriVectin-SD™ Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks & Wrinkles, I was more than willing. The stuff is pricey, but it comes in a huge 5-ounce tube, which makes the price per ounce actually pretty decent. It smells good and goes on nicely with just a tiny bit of tingling to signal its exfoliating effect on the skin. Some exfoliating cream is so drying that if you use it in the morning you’ll be peeling like a crocodile by noon. Strivectin-SD™ isn’t like that — it’s very moisturizing.
My skin care routine is really very simple. I do the oil cleansing method (I wrote about it here) and feel like it does a good job at moisturizing and leaving my skin looking fresh and feeling supple. I didn’t really expect this cream to magically get rid of my wrinkles — I’ve earned them, after all. But any improvement would be welcomed and I was really hoping to even out the brown sun spots on my cheeks.
Since the olive oil is so good on my skin, I decided to just add the StriVectin-SD™ Intensive Concentrate on top of that. I’ve used it for about 3 weeks now and am really happy with the results. It has noticeably lightened the sun spots on my cheeks, and made one smaller one on my forehead almost completely disappear. I need to start using it on the backs of my hands — I’d love to see if those spots would get lighter too.
I think this tube is going to last me quite a while, but when I use it up I’ll be buying more. This stuff feels great on my skin, and has definitely improved the looks of it. It’s more even-toned and feels nicely moisturized. Love it! But I’m also glad I have a hubby who still thinks I look 17. I’ll take every advantage I can get!
