So this is my first look at the brand Strivectin. I’ve not really seen much of them until now, although I’ve heard the name, but the introduction of their new Advanced Acids range has led me to take a closer look. These are powerful products that combine skin transforming acids with NIA-114™ to give your skin care routine a boost that will maximise results.
The Strivectin Glycolic Skin Reset Mask is great for when your skin feels rough and dehydrated . It’s both powerful and gentle. It pairs encapsulated glycolic acid with NIA-114™ to give exceptional exfoliating results with minimal irritation. For me, it didn’t tingle but my skin felt a little warm for around ten minutes after I’d removed the mask. It really is a quick fix – you only need to leave it on for 5 minutes to allow the formula to work on resurfacing your skin and leave it looking glowy. You can use this once or twice a week but the use of AHA (included in the formula) may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun so you’ll need to use a sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product. It’s £47 here.
The Strivectin Oleic Rapid Recovery Milk is designed to replenish your skin’s lipids for improved firmness & elasticity. This formula combines the patented NIA-114™ molecule with Oleic Acid which is an essential ingredient for lipid replenishment and renewal. It sinks in quickly and feels comforting as it’s applied. It made my skin feel velvety to the touch and aims to firm skin, improve resilience and repair signs of aging. Of the three products this is the one that I’ve trialed for the shortest time (just a few days) so I’ll update you more on the effects in a future post. It’s £55.50 here.
The third in this trio of advanced acids is the Strivectin Hyaluronic Dual-Response Serum that’s been created to replump and bring dehydrated skin back to life.
This hyaluronic serum is silky and lightweight delivering lasting hydration and moisturisation from a dual chamber pump. One chamber holds six unique forms of hyaluronic acid to plump and hydrate and the other holds combined NIA-114™ and ceramides to lock in moisture and prevent water loss. One pump combines the two ready for application.
This is the product of the three that I trialled first and I liked it so much that I’ve used it day and night since I got it. (I’ve just added it to my empties list for April.) The only comfort I have in coming to the end of this is that I can give the Oleic Rapid Recovery Milk a try now. You can find the Strivectin Hyaluronic Dual-Response Serum for £55.50 here.
I’ve been pleasantly surprised by Strivectin as a brand and trialling these three acids has taken me on a gentle path of discovery that’s reassured me that I shouldn’t be alarmed by the use of the word acid in a beauty setting. These are powerful products but they’re pretty gentle too. What do you think? Do you use acids in your beauty routine?
I’d love to hear about your experiences – let me know in the comments below.
