StriVectin-SD™ Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles

StriVectin-SD™ Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles ReviewIn the under eye department, normally there is not too much to talk about. I usually reach for eye creams for an added moisture boost–thats it. Normally, my eyes don’t need special attention. But honestly when I’m enjoying life (staying out late) or working hard (staying up late) it takes a toll on my eyes. I look very tired and people ask me if I’m ok or if I’ve been crying– you know those nice comments of concern that all convey that you look like shit. Basically, you can tell when I’ve been behaving badly or when I have been churning out work by looking at my eyes. Some eye creams over the years work wonders -for a short time- eventually, most fall flat in their claims, but sometimes, sometimes you come across others that actually work. 

I’ve been seeing this eye cream, namely StriVectin-SD Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles for fucking ever. I thought it was like $100 bucks, so I didn’t even want to come within its orbit. I was wrong its $65, still though way more than I’d like to pay for a cream used for an area the size of an apple slice. So when it appeared in my Birchbox this month I was pumped, even more so for the generous sample size aka real time to try it out. I’ve been using it faithfully since I got it–morning and night– as though it will make me a better person or something. IDK, I always to some degree think beauty products will make me a better person like some instant self-help. Anyway, I was expecting something from the hype and from seeing it for years but I had little hope, I had very low expectations from my experience with other creams.

When I started using this I had visible bags under my eyes, a sort of graceful line from the inner corner of my eye, reaching out as if to say hello to my cheek, basically reverse laugh lines. Also, I looked tired, like I had a newborn baby that won’t relax (I don’t). Instantly, or like a day or two later, which is pretty instant for me, my bags and puffiness went down, wayyyyy down– like I slept, like I took a vigorous yoga class, like I drank a green smoothie for breakfast, basically all the shit I do not do. Put simply, I look rested. I don’t really have wrinkles yet, so I can’t comment on that, but for puffiness and bags– THIS STUFF WORKS. I don’t need under eye concealer or sleep, I just need this powerful little tube of eye cream.

  1. Wow I am pretty determined to not like expensive Strivectin but I must say this is a colorful and effective sales pitch!!

    • Sales pitch?! I love it! Yeah, I just was really blown away at the change in my under eye area after using it, especially with puffiness. I’ve been avoiding trying it etc, for what seems like an eternity– while I’m glad it works– I’m not so glad when I finish my sample that I will likely have to pick this up. I always hate those “You look so tired comments.” so it seems like I’ll be biting the bullet and picking it up.

      • 🙂 Maybe sales pitch was the wrong word. What I mean is you have me almost sold with your description!

      • No no, I love that you called it a sales pitch. When I really am blown away with a product, I get really into it. This is seriously one of those products. I even approach people in Sephora, the drug store and Target when I see them struggling with products and standing there totally confused, we usually end up chatting and I usually end up selling them on something or pointing them in another product direction. It is definitely super fun and entertaining.

      • Oh hahaha maybe we have something in common! I have taken friends to Ulta and been like, “you need this and you need this, don’t bother with this.” Haha. I love talking to people who are passionate about skin solutions and that’s why blogging is necessary for me cause I hardly know anyone like that. 🙂

      • OMG, I know. I can talk about skin care, makeup etc. for hours. While my friends you are into it, they are not THAT into it. Blogging is an awesome way to connect with people about beauty products. Magazines are just not enough… What products are you into right now? I’d love to know….
