An intensive overnight lotion that supports the four essential building blocks of healthy skin appearance: Proteins, micronutrients, water and lipids. Retinol helps improve cell turnover, visibly enhancing skin firmness and elasticity and diminishing the look of lines and wrinkles.

Patented NIA-114TM technology nourishes the moisture barrier to provide visible age fighting efficacy and limit the sensitivity common to Retinol. Formulated with copper tripeptides, plant lipids and hyaluronic acid that help lock in moisture and defend against damage caused by environmental aggressors. The supercharged formula helps restore skin to its healthiest state during sleep for a more refined, youthful looking appearance.

Scientifically proven to:
  • Deliver the benefits of retinol without the irritating side effects
  • Reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enhance skin for visible firmness and elasticity
  • Refine and smooth skin texture for a more radiant appearance
  • Deeply nourish and hydrate skin
Apply to clean face in the PM. Massage evenly and gently into skin following Advanced Retinol Concentrated Serum.

    Comments about StriVectin Advanced Retinol Intensive Night Moisturizer:

    I use this nighly after washing my face, no other moisturizer needed at bed time. I have struggled with patchy dryness, oiliness and adult acne for over 10 years. This product changed my life in 1 week. I am religious about nighly application and my skin is baby's butt smooth with tiny pores and no whiteheads or blackheads. Cystic chin acne - gone. I am going without makeup to the grocery store, which I haven't done for years. It seems to be helping my melasma too. Im just floored by the effectiveness. My dermatologist prescribed clinical retinol, but it made me peel and I just never got the right result. This cream is now my favorite item in my beauty repertoire. I've been using it for about a month but I swear I look 10 years younger already. I'm 43, light-medium complexioned, do if you're like me, hopefully you'll have a simliar result.

      Comments about StriVectin Advanced Retinol Intensive Night Moisturizer:

      I've now gone through 2 bottles of this, it does exactly what it says! The best part is you don't have to do a second step of moisturizing afterwards like many other retinol products. It goes on luxuriously smooth, and I can see a major difference in my skin using it a few days in a row- firmer, smoother, & minor lines are blurred. I'm in my mid-30s and have normal skin, but trying to prevent signs of aging and improve my skin as much as possible. I LOVE this product & 100% recommend it!

          I have combination skin that tends toward dryness aside from my Tzone, and especially in the winter I need some extra moisture. This product is absolutely fantastic. It moisturizes extremely well without being heavy or greasy. Even the next day my skin feels soft and moisturizer to the touch. It is also a powerful retinol formula. It reduced one of my sun spots to nearly nothing, and smooths out minor wrinkles and imperfections. I'm in my mid 30s and have always taken good care of my skin; I am trying to prevent further signs of aging. this product is my go-to retinol/moisturizer all in one. I highly recommend it!

            I have found that strivectin night moisturizer is the best retinal based product on market for the price. Family and friends say I look younger than my age and say that my face looks radiant since using this product for 2 years. I am 65 with very few wrinkles and my skin has tightened nicely. I would highly recommend strivectin and plan on using it for years to come.

                Comments about StriVectin Advanced Retinol Intensive Night Moisturizer:

                I use this only at night. I've been advised by my dermatologist to never use retinol based products during the day due to increased sun sensitivity. This retinol product is good, but the price is not. I can go to my dermatologist and get his 1% retinol cream, and it is cheaper than this product. I will finish using my tube of this stuff but will buy from my dermatologist after this stuff is gone. This type of retinol is tretinoin, which is a very good type of retinol. However, other products like Differin Gel have the adapaline retinol based based products for around 12 bucks. I also have the Differin gel and it is just as effective as Strivectin. Save your money.

                          A:

                          Yes absolutely. Because of the combination of NIA-114 and Retinol in the formula, NIA-114 strengthens the skin barrier and minimizes the irritating side effects some common with Retinol so that it can be used twice daily.

                        I'm 32 and have started getting wrinkles under my eyes, in the corners of my mouth, and also between my eyes. I've had Botox for my crows feet, for the horizontal lines between my eyes, and even for the under eye area, but Botox can only do so much. I'm trying to figure out what products would be best to use. I have oily skin, but my face is pretty smooth besides the fine lines. Could you maybe give me some ideas on what products would work best for my concerns? Thanks!

                          Our AR Intensive Night Moisturizer is a great choice, as is our Advanced Retinol Concentrated Serum, which will deliver the actives without the moisturization. You could use both and layer for maximum benefit. Another product to consider is our Multi-Action Restorative Cream which targets 12 major signs of aging and is ideal for younger skin. And don't forget to check out our amazing eye creams. You'd love the Intensive Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles, formulated specifically for wrinkles and crow's feet around the eyes.

                          Both are potent and effective. The moisturizer has the added hydrating benefit while the serum is better for layering if you already have a favorite moisturizer in your regimen. Together, you'll get better, faster results.

                          While we don't provide percentages of the ingredients in our products, what sets this product apart is the combination of the NIA-114 and Retinol which drives faster conversion of Retinol to retinoic acid (so your skin can use more of the molecule) and minimizes irritation due to the barrier-building effects of the NIA-114. You can also use this product with the Neutrogena Wrinkle Repair Serum. Apply the serum first then the moisturizer.

                          A:

                          We use a blend of retinol and retinyl palmitate in our blend such that the combination of the two is higher than the 1% retinol level allowed in cosmeceutical products. However, again, we do not focus on the level of retinol because the key differentiator for our product is the inclusion of NIA-114 which promotes faster conversion of retinol to retinoic acid and therefore, produces faster, stronger results without the irritation.

                          Yes. It is a night moisturizer that offers numerous ingredients to hydrate skin as well as the building blocks to restore skin to its healthiest state while you sleep. On a hydration stand point, it is a bit more moisturizing than our SD Advanced.

                      • Q:

                        I use prescription retinol .1% a few days per week. Can this be used in conjunction with that or do I have to stop using the prescription first?

                          It is not recommended to combine the Advanced Retinol products with prescription retinol so yes, you would want to discontinue your prescription prior to beginning an Advanced Retinol regimen.
