    Great product, but packaging makes it impossible to know if you are running out and to confirm that you've used it all. For these prices, I want to be sure I've used it all.

      Comments about StriVectin Advanced Retinol Concentrated Serum:

      I also have very sensitive skin. Strivectin has absolutely no adverse effects on my face, neck, or eye area. This product is worth the cost. A great moisturizer is priceless and way more important than makeup. It is key to keeping our skin hydrated and youthful!!!!!! I have been using it for several years now. Its all I will use on my face.

      My favorite facial moisturizer ever!!!!

      By dmdspice

      from Houston suburbs

      Comments about StriVectin Advanced Retinol Concentrated Serum:

      I have tried many different moisturizers. Strivectin is my absolute favorite! It is important to keep our skin moisturized. It is our largest organ. It needs protection from the weather. I use to get very dry skin in the winter. But, since I have been using Strivectin, my skin is always hydrated, silky, soft, and radiant. I don't wear makeup either. So, a great moisturizer is extremely important to me so I can keep my skin healthy and glowing!

            I've been using this product for just over one month and I absolutely can say that I see results - my neck is NOT as stringy looking. This is great. The skin is tighter and the photos are looking much better. Note that it is a fix all, but it really is an improvement. I plan to buy more, even though it is pricey.

              • Brand Expert

                A:

                We don't release the percentage of Retinol in the product or any of our ingredients for that matter because they are proprietary. We created a formula to maximize the benefits of Retinol in a non-prescription skincare product.

            • Q:

              After just one application of this I feel like I need to exfoliate like crazy. If I am using this and exfoliating carefully, will I eventually see smoother skin? How long does it take to reach a point of feeling like I am seeing renewed skin and that this product has reached its full potential?

              • Brand Expert

                A:

                Because Retinol drives cell turnover, exfoliating skin isn't really necessary. However, as long as you use a gentle exfoliant and only exfoliate 2-3 times a week, you could work it in. Regarding seeing results, your skin will feel differently usually within 7-10 days with significant improvements in the appearance of wrinkles, skin firmness and overall visible aging seen in 8-12 weeks.

              • Brand Expert

                A:

                We do not share any percentages of our ingredients. However, we use the most efficacious amount and in this particular product, as much as we were allowed by the FDA. More importantly is that the Retinol is combined with NIA-114, which drives faster conversion of Retinol to retinoic acid so that you see faster, smarter results. In addition, because NIA-114 builds the skin barrier, it minimizes the irritating side effects (tingling, stinging, burning).

                A:

                Yes, it can and the presence of our patented NIA-114 molecule, which strengthens the skin barrier, can aid in helping acne prone skin.

            • Q:

              For retinol products to achieve age fighting potency, they need a form of Vitamin B (also listed as niacin sometimes) & for best absorption & results, it is also recommended to have a form of vitamin C in the product. Does this product contain any forms of Vitamin B or Vitamin C?

                A:

                Yes, our patented NIA-114 molecule is a niacin-based molecule that drives faster conversion of retinol to retinoic acid. Our clinicals showed 12x faster conversion due to the presence of our NIA-114 molecule.

                A:

                While we have anecdotal evidence that our Advanced Retinol products with patented NIA-114 can improve acne, we did not test this in our clinical trials and thus, can make no claim for that benefit.
