So I've been testing this retinol oil for almost two months and I have a lot of thoughts! Applying the S.T.A.R.Light Night Oil is such a nice experience. The scent is lovely. I usually prefer products with little to no scent but I really like how this oil smells. If you're not ok with scented skincare, this may not be for you. Other than that, it's nicely moisturizing yet isn't overwhelming for my oily skin.
It's super easy to integrate into any routine. My regular nighttime routine consisted of a double cleanse, moisturizing toner, eye cream, serum, cream, sleeping mask. During testing this oil I stopped using my serum (so the retinol was the only active in my routine in order to see the oil's full effects) and put the oil right before my cream or mixed it into my cream.
In my experience, it's a very gentle retinol product. My skin isn't new to retinoids but I didn't experience any irritation. Honestly, I don't think it would cause irritation for retinol beginners either!
I noticed that it did start to smooth some of my fine lines although I can't speak to effects yet on deep lines. With retinol it's all about the long game and I'm sure I'll continue to see positive effects.
A negative for me is definitely the steep price point - although a little goes a long way - and there are a few cheaper options out there. The only reason I knocked off a star. Overall, I'm a fan of this oil and it has been a great addition to my nighttime routine.
I received this product complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster, but all opinions are my own.
I received this free, for a review in return. After a few day's, I was seeing a positive difference in my skin. But after a couple weeks, using it every other day, I began getting patches of irritation.
In-depth review and use of product:
When I received, I was made aware of the fact you may need to mix in with a moisturizer, due to its potency. I tried it a couple times without moisturizer, and I had some tingling. The product worked-into the skin well, but left an almost heavy and greasy film on my skin. After a couple times trying without moisturizer, and getting a tingly sensation, I decided to try with moisturizer. I was afraid the tingling was alluding to the fact the product may be a little too harsh for my skin. Applying and comfort helped tremendously when mixed with moisturizer. After about 5 days, I began to notice texture on my skin, also noted to happen when using, in the beginning. I continued using, but experienced noticeable texture on my skin, while wearing making- during the day, after wash and gentle exfoliation. This turned me off, but I kept on, since I don't wear makeup daily. After about 2 weeks I began getting patches of red and sensitive patches on my skin, similar to an allergic reaction, but with really weird texture only where the reaction was happening.
After two weeks, and resulting in what appeared to be allergic reactions, I stopped. In the mornings after doing my nightly routine with this product i did notice my skin looking more young and like a blue effect.

I really enjoy this product. It goes on very easily, and provides a beautiful base for other serums I use at night. My skin looks glowy.
Ease of you, great outcome...who could ask for more?
Cheryl R. from undisclosed
I love, love this oil! It goes on smoothly and soaks into my skin. In the morning, after my skin has drunk it up, I can see a noticeable difference in small lines and additional moisture.

This stuff is amazing! My face is smooth and it gives me a glow. I'm oily but dehydrated so works well with that also.

This my 2nd purchase of the oil. I don't use it every day but it seems to be a good compliment to the other retinol products.
Cynthia W. from undisclosed
I was excited to get a retinol product that did not irritate my skin but although there is not irritation, there also is not improvement to fine lines.

This has been one of the best add ins to my regimen. I have noticed such an improved appearance to the texture of my skin.

I love this product! I have been using it religously for a couple of years now. A bottle lasts quite a while but when it gets low I get a little nervous. It's "must have" item in my night time routine. My skin always looks better and more firm after a good night's sleep and use of this product.
Tara E. from undisclosed
I use every night. I have noticed a definitely improvement in texture and appearance of my skin. I plan on continuing use of the product!

I'm 37 with little to no damage to my skin thanks to consistent care since I was 16. Shout out to my high school science teacher warning us of holes in the ozone layer reinforcing the importance for spf! I do however have very sensitive skin and every retinol serum I've tried has broken me out in severe acne that has taken months to clear up. I really wanted to incorporate a retinol into my routine because at my age that youthful glow is diminished. I tried Sunday Riley and although there were no side effects there were also no improvements. I found this after reading an online article interview with Lauren Hutton and she named this as one of her go to products. It did not disappoint!! My skin is smooth, radiant, and even. And the one or two lines that were around my mouth and on my forehead are gone. I purchased a second bottle today and it is now a permanent staple in my night routine.

Use this product at night before the nighttime moisturizer. It makes my skin feel nice and soft.

This oil absorbs into my skin and helps it feel so soft. I'm constantly amazed at the difference it makes on my skin. I go to bed with a dewy glow and wake up to soft and supple skin!
Reta from undisclosed
I use it after my day and night cream. Love the feeling. Its not greasy and smells great. Sometimes i use it just by itself or i mix it with little faoundation and provides a glowing effect while applying the make up. Love it

I'm fair skinned, relatively young (30), and have clear skin. However my skin is a bit dry, and I have some wrinkles on my forehead and uneven/rough texture on my cheeks so after lots of research I decided to try retinol. I AM SO GLAD I DID! There are 2 slight downsides, but this product is phenomenal. I spot tested this product on my arm and neck without any adverse reaction after 48 hours, so when I used it on my face, I was surprised to see bumps and little white pimples all over my face after 24 hours of application! But this was the famous "purging" effect of retinol. My clogged pores were coming to the surface. I continued with my skincare as normal and used the retinol night oil 3 times per week. The bumps were gone within 4 days. I've used this product for the last 6 weeks and my skin as never been softer!!! I usually don't notice a difference from skincare products but this really does do what it says!!! The roughness of my skin is gone, clogged pores are gone, and it's softer than I could ever imagine! Still working on those forehead wrinkles but OMG I love this! The other downside that remains is because I'm so fair, my skin is much more sensitive to the sun and gets red/flushed cheeks when I am too warm. The flushed cheeks has lessened over the weeks and I assume it will continue getting better. I'll use this product forever and hopefully it will help in the aging process. Thank you StriVectin!

My face doesn't absorb this well. By morning I feel it in my hair line and my neck. I prefer the strivectin night cream moisturizer. I have been using this oil on my stretch marks instead.

I started using this product recently and I'm quite happy with it. Its mild enough that causes no rash from the get go. My skin is so soft and supple in the morning. My pores seem smaller, no break outs and I feel like my fine lines are getting less evident. I don't think you need to buy all the products in the line, just the ones that are more concentrated and effective. I use this oil at night and the Strivectin serum with vitamin C and retinol in the morning. They both have a lovely scent. I recommend this product.

I got a free sample of this and began using it. Wow, so many of the problem areas for my almost 50 year old skin have vanished. Ordering a whole bottle today.
