Comments about StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner:

I went to Ulta a month ago and was looking for a new day cream. There was a strivectin rep who persuaded me to buy this telling me I NEEDED retinol. I told her I had a bad reaction to retinols and she said the "technology" in Strivectin won't cause it to irritate me. Well I know have the biggest cystic acne on the sides of my face and it is so depressing. I went to the derm before knowing what the problem was and right away she mentioned how retinols can be way too harsh and make the skin react. I LOVE ulta because they let me return my bottle.

Great age fighting product

Comments about StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner:

I lost a lot of weight recently and unfortunately instead of feeling beautiful I felt awkward. My skin collapsed. I honestly considered a face lift . I tried many products to tighten , firm and lift my skin. Then I noticed my mom had StriVectin pore refining cream one day after sleeping over. I left different immediately . I saw my skin change very minorly at first but hen as time passed I saw huge changes for the better. This pore refiner did what it said it would . It evened out tone, felt comfortable and lasted all day!

I bought this about a month ago and I can already see the results. I use this on my nose and I am so pleased. I have a Tzone but this is the only area the pores were enlarged but honestly not anymore. I strongly recommend this product.

    Really works!

    By ulii999

    from Toronto, ON, Canada

    Comments about StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner:

    I have acne prone and oily skin with enlarged pores. I have been using it for about 3 months already and I can see a difference. My pores look smaller and a skin tone is much healthier. It blurs away all the redness and makes post acne scars less noticeable. I apply a foundation on top and even after 4 hours my usually oily T- zone looks still mat.

    Comments about StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner:

    I've been using this product, my first Strivectin product, for a couple months now and I can definitely see an improvement in my pores. They are smaller and less noticeable. I don't look airbrushed--its not a miracle cream afterall--but I feel better and even go makeup free occasionally now!

    • Q:

      What percentage of retinol does this product contain?
      Asked on 10/31/2017 by Traci from Norman, ok

      1 answer

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        We don't provide the percentage of ingredients in our formula. However, we do ensure that we use the most efficacious levels of ingredients. Plus, with the combination of Retinol with our patented NIA-114 technology, we have clinical evidence that this results in 12 times faster conversion of retinol to retinoic acid, ensuring greater, faster results. In addition, because NIA-114 builds the skin barrier, you will see less irritation than with products that don't contain this exclusive technology.

    • Q:

      Will this help to reduce the appearance of acne scars as well?
      Asked on 10/27/2017 by Michelle from MI

      1 answer

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        While we have heard anecdotally that our patented NIA-114 may help with this issue, we do not make this claim on any of the StriVectin products.

    • Q:

      Hi should l use at night or in the moring , because this product it contains retinol and retinol is Very sensitive to the sun
      Asked on 10/25/2017 by Agnes from Des Plaines ill

      1 answer

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        You use it twice a day. Because of the patented NIA-114 molecule in the formula, which converts retinol to retinoic acid 12x faster, degradation by the sun is not as much as an issue. In addition, the NIA-114 strengthens the skin barrier, minimizing the irritating side effects of Retinol.

      Hi. Can I use this with the strivectin sd wrinkle cream? And if so, how do I use this; before the sd cream or after?
      Asked on 8/30/2017 by KHALEESISTELLARUM from CHICAGO

      1 answer

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        Yes, you would apply SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate first, allow it to dry down then apply the Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner so that the mattefying effects are achieved. You can also apply the Pore Refiner in the AM and SD Advanced in the PM.

      1 answer

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        Yes, the NIA-114 in the formula will help promote healthy skin and minimize visible signs of aging as well as help reduce the look of pores along with the other powerhouse ingredients in the product.

    • Q:

      Can I use this with Potent Wrinkle Reducing Serum? Was concerned that the two products together would be too much. Thanks.
      Asked on 11/25/2015 by Experimenter from Philly, PA

      1 answer

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        You can definitely pair the Potent Wrinkle Reducing Serum with the Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner. We recommend applying the serum the first and letting it absorb into the skin before applying the Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner.

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        Absolutely. Because it creates a matte finish and helps control oil and shine, that is a great way to use this product.

    • Q:

      How do I use this product?
      I have the Retinol day treatment spf 30 but I wasn't sure if you are able to use the products at the same time?
      Asked on 9/13/2015 by Lia from Houston tx

      1 answer

      • Brand Expert

        A:

        We generally recommend you select either the Pore Refiner or the Day Moisturizer for AM use. To use the Pore Refiner, apply as the last step of your skin care regimen prior to applying make up.
