    Comments about Strivectin Advanced Retinol Night Treatment:

    This product is AMAZING! I received it in a sample pack and WOW! I wake up and my dark complexion skin is bright and looks so healthy. I almost don't want to wash my face in the morning because it looks great. After 2 consecutive uses i was receiving complements about my skin. I only use a light powder on my face now. No need for a full foundation routine. The only thing i hate is the price.

      Comments about Strivectin Advanced Retinol Night Treatment:

      I've suffered with skin sensitivity and dryness my entire life. I have severe keratosis pilaris, which covers most of my body. Product after product, nothing helps clear my skin and reduce the redness/dryness like this has, without harming my sensitive skin. This did everything it said it would - overnight. I put it in the worst part of my skin (my arms) after I got out of the shower and then went to bed. When I woke up in the morning my skin was fully hydrated, the redness was almost completely gone and my KP dimished trifold. I didn't have any adverse reaction to the retinol, although I know some may (then again I only got 1-2 uses from the sample). I almost wish you could get this with a prescription, then at least I may be able to afford it. But at $100+ a bottle, this is a luxury I cannot afford full size.

      Comments about Strivectin Advanced Retinol Night Treatment:

      I got a sample size of this product with a large ULTA purchase and at first I wanted to ignore it. I started using it at night daily and I've noticed an obvious difference. It's been a week. My wrinkles on the forehead appear to be smoothing out and my post-acne marks and slight lines around the nose are fading away. I plan to purchase a full size of this product when I finish the sample.

          Comments about Strivectin Advanced Retinol Night Treatment:

          I first purchased this product in December of 2014, and after using it every evening after cleansing, my skin has become much softer, luminous, firmer, plumper, wrinkles have diminished significantly and the clarity and tone of my facial skin, neck and decollete have improved greatly. After cleansing in the p.m., I apply a thin layer (a little goes a LONG way) to these areas, and have found that a separate moisturizer is not necessary because the product is so moisturizing. After using for a month, I started getting compliments in regard to what procedures have I gotten (botox, juvaderm, etc.) because my skin was noticeably younger looking. I have used MANY high end skin care products over the years, and the Strivectin-AR Advanced Retinol Night Treatment is one of only several I keep in my anti-aging arsenal because of the results I've gotten in the 2 months I've been using it.

                  A:

                  Yes, it improves firmness and elasticity by stimulating collagen production in the skin to strengthen skin's dermal cushion. It also addresses wrinkles as well.

              • Q:

                An earlier post mentioned that this product contains a fragrance. Usually fragrances in products are NOT a good thing depending on the ingredient that's providing the scent. Fragrances can be irritating to the skin. Is the fragrance derived from a source that is non-irritating to the skin?

                  A:

                  Yes. Synthetic fragrances can be less irritating to skin than natural ingredient as they are formulated specifically with topical application in mind. In addition, all of our products are tested for skin irritation and tolerability.

                  A:

                  For around the eyes, we recommend an eye specific product so that it does not creep, is ophthalmologist-tested as well as contains ingredients specific for the eyes to target dark circles, wrinkles, etc. We have an Advanced Retinol Eye Treatment that would be ideal for use around the eyes. While you can use AR Night Treatment on the neck, we also offer TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream.

                  A:

                  Yes. While hydrating and nourishing to skin, it still maintains its lightweight texture and dries down to a satin finish. You might also consider the Advanced Retinol Concentrated Serum that you can apply in the AM and PM and then layer the Advanced Retinol Night Treatment in the evening only so that your skin is receiving Retinol plus our patented NIA-114 molecule twice daily.

                  A:

                  This product contains less than 1% retinol, which is the highest concentration allowed in cosmeceutical products. StriVectin uses the highest percentage that they are able to as a cosmeceutical but the key differentiating factor for the Advanced Retinol Night Treatment is the combination of NIA-114 with Retinol. NIA-114 drives 12x faster conversion to retinoic acid so that your skin can absorb and use more of the retinol in the formula. Plus, the barrier building benefits of NIA-114 reduce the irrating side effects common to Retinol by maintaining skin barrier integrity and mitigating those effects.

              • Q:

                I am using another product, which is a night serum containing the same amount of Retinol. I would love to try the StriVectin Advanced Retinol Night Treatment. If I layered both prodcuts, would this amount to my using a total of 2% Retinol?

                  A:

                  You can layer the two but it won't necessarily equate to 2% as your skin will absorb only what it can and what it needs. The NIA-114 in the Advanced Retinol Night Treatment drives faster conversion of retinol to retinoic acid so that your skin can use more the retinol in the formula with fewer side effects due the barrier building effects of NIA-114.

              • Q:

                I bought this and have been using it nightly, but my acne has gotten worse in certain areas (forehead / side of face next to eyes). I was using the Murad Acne/Wrinkle reducer cream prior to this.

                Would I want to use some type of Acne cream before or after using this Retinol night cream? Any suggestions on a good Acne cream? Would I also want to use a toner prior to applying the Retinol?

                I am male. (not sure if this makes any difference)

                  A:

                  The cream might be too oily for you. We also have the Advanced Retinol Concentrated Serum that doesn't moisturize or deliver oils, which will help with the acne. Retinol can help with acne as can our patented NIA-114 molecule so the technology is right, perhaps just not the actual product.
