How StriVectin-SD Has Changed My Skin

I have been using StriVectin-SD™ products as a system and with consistency last summer.

Emphasis: system and with consistency.

After years of searching, experimenting, consulting dermatologists and estheticians… and a great deal of spending – I have finally found THE THING that works for me. I am a new-to-forty-year-old woman who has struggled and struggled… not only with adult acne, but also hyperpigmentation. Oh. And now there are wrinkles rearing their crinkly seams. For me, two things have made a dramatic difference:

  1. Finding the right product
  2. Being consistent

Since using several StriVectin-SD™ products consistently, I have been able to eliminate my prescription products and cut my need for facials in half. Or more. Some people get facials for relaxation and pampering… But for me, facials had become one of the only things I found to help me tackle my cystic acne and reduce my worsening hyperpigmentation. I’m not here to focus a bunch on the entire StriVectin-SD™ system, but it gives background to my experience with StriVectin-SD™. And only StriVectin formulas have a patented, clinically-proven NIA-114 molecule that powers up skin to help repair damage and fight off all visible signs of aging for a youthful look and feel. (Learn more about their products on the StriVectin website.)

I am not saying my skin is acne-free, wrinkle free, or brown spot free, but comparatively my skin is insanely better… I am convinced that using StriVectin-SD™ has been the most effective soldier in my battle against skin issues… specifically related to my complexion.

Now. What about stretch marks?

Enter StriVectin-SD™ Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks & Wrinkles. For the last 2 weeks I have been consistently applying StriVectin-SD™ Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks & Wrinkles to a couple of my stretch-marky spots. Honestly, I am a bit too vain to show you a picture of my post-partum, very-not-flat belly, and my upper thighs. Better or not better… some things are just better left to the imagination.

Instead, here’s my face. Present day. No make-up… extra tired from a having a bit too much fun the night before. A year ago I would have never posted an untouched photo of my face without make-up. I can’t even find an untouched picture from a year ago to share… because I deleted them all. It feels good to feel good about my skin, even if it’s not flawless… My plain-old skin feels and looks so much more healthy than it has for a very long time…

me with no make-up
Imma just tell y’alls… my tummy’s 7-13 year old stretch marks may never fully go away, but I’ll be darned if I haven’t found something that is making those bad boys fade: StriVectin-SD™ Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks & Wrinkles. This post needs to be delivered now, but I wish I had an 8 week period before writing this to give you the 8 week results. It’s harder to see the belly stretch-mark results (due to a special sort of wonderful post-baby softness that exists), but  the difference in the marks on my upper thighs is clear in just 2 weeks of consistent use (2 times a day). Honestly, I had given up on diminishing those lame stretch-marks. I assumed after so many years, nothing would help. I was proven wrong!

    I am in adult cystic acne hell.

    I’ve always been an acne sufferer, but in the last few years (hello 40) it has gotten MUCH worse and each lesion takes so much longer to go away. I’m about to start a round of my eleventieth antibiotic because topical creams have stopped working. I’m fascinated that this could have helped your adult acne, and so therefore,I need to win this giveaway and be their next test case! 🙂

    • Hi Gigi! I have really struggled with cystic acne as well. I use the Instand Retexturizing Scrub (they recommend bi-weekly use, but I used it daily for about 2 months in the beginning), the Power Serum for Wrikles, and their Age Protect suncreen. It didn’t go away over night, and I usually get 1-2 good ones once a month…. HOWEVER, I noticed after 6 weeks of consistent use a DRASTIC decrease. And now that it’s been months I can see the hormonal pattern better in those flare-ups. So for ME I markedly worked to help drastically reduce my own acne AND the dark spots. I really do recommend trying it.

  2. Sheila says:

    The acne improvement. I have had acne since I was a pre-teen and that was EONS ago! I was hoping with peri-menopause that it would FINALLY go away. But no, it seems to be getting worse 🙁

    How is StriVectin with rosacea? That is also my latest ‘gift’ of the meno-pausal season…

  3. Lu says:

    I am most intrigued by how it helps to repair the skin. I know stretch marks are not a favorite of mine at all. By the way, you always look great to me.

  4. Mami2jcn says:

    I gained a lot of weight with my 3 pregnancies so I have a lot of stretch marks. I’d be interested in seeing how this ingredient treats stretch marks.

    When my sister visited last year, I used a dab or two of her Strivectin products for several days. Wow — in just that short time I could feel a difference in my sensitive problem skin. I’d forgotten about it until now — would love to add it to my daily regimen. Your skin looks fantastic!

  13. Sunshyn V says:

    I’m very interested for it helping my stretch marks.

  19. Sonya Morris says:

    Your skin looks amazing! I have used StriVectin before and had to stop during this pregnancy because my skin has become extremely dry and sensitive. I will be thrilled when I can start using it again and hopefully it will clear up the mild case of “pregnancy mask”,or at least I am blaming my pregnancy on some of the discoloration on my face! I am interested in trying it on my old stretch marks too just to see how it works even though they really don’t bother me that much.

  20. amy pugmire says:

    I like that it works on stretch marks and acne, something I have both of. It would be great to have a product that will help both.

  23. D Schmidt says:

    What interests me most is that NIA-114 molecule powers up skin to help repair damage and after having three children I have a lot of that!

  24. steph says:

    it interests me most that is is clinically proven! i need some stretchmark help.

  25. sy says:

  26. rachel says:

    I’m interested in learning more about how they discovered the molecule — and interested in trying it out!

  27. LAMusing says:

    Wrinkle improvement would be great – I’d rather not Botox even if I could afford it. and brown spots – for the last year or so they started cropping up all over my poor face. I can cover them with make–up but I would love to be able to go make-up free like I used to.

  28. Lisa Brown says:

    I like the gentle, continual exfoliation the NIA-114 does to the skin. It’s easier on the skin for those like me with sensitive skin and who cannot use harsher chemical exfoliants. Softens lines and clarifies the skin.

  32. Tina M says:

    help my Wrinkles

  33. Jayne Martin says:

    I wonder if it would work on the backs of my hands. You can do a lot to hide your age on your face, but wrinkled hands are a dead giveaway.

    After having my son I noticed stretch marks. I would love to know how these ingrediants would help with that.

    What a wonderful review. I’m most interested in StriVectin to help with wrinkles. I didn’t know that this could also help with acne and I’m thrilled to hear that it does. It’s hard to find a product that will assist with both.

    I’m starting to show wrinkles at the age of 30 and would love to start using this as a jump start on major skin flaws and wrinkles
