I know it's good practice to have both of these things implemented into a skincare routine so I was excited to try this since the formula has both Retinol AND Vitamin C in the formula..I was taking 2 steps and combining them! This was my first time using Retinol and I was worried because I read it can dry out your face. Now, I have combination skin that is very sensitive and can get dry in place. However, this formula did nothing but help my face. It smells nice and doesn't burn like some Retinol can upon application. I do think it has helped fade some of my acne scars so I actually haven't reach for foundation in a hot minute. Another perk is that it has helped reduce the blackheads in my nose. I'm not sure if it's due to this formula or something else I'm trying, but I am willing to give this item the credit. My only beef is that I wish the bottle was bigger because I need more than the 2-3 drops suggested in the directions to cover my whole face, so I know I will have to purchase this item more frequently than I planned to.
I'll preface this by saying this is my first time using anything with retinol, so my rating my not be totally fair since there's an adjustment period required for the skin. I like this product because it combines Vitamin C and retinol, and these are both great for an anti aging regime. I like the orange scent and the serum feels nice and cool on the skin, and absorbs nicely without residue. I wish the label stated how strong the retinol concentration is. I used it as directed for 2 days before getting a mild chemical burn on my face. After discontinuing use it cleared up after about 5 days and peeled for another week. I've since stated using every other day, OVER my PM Moisturizer instead of under it like it directs. Only follow the directions if you are used to retinol!

This stuff is great! I woke up the next morning after using it and looked positively angelic. The scent is subtle and non-irritating

I've only been using this for a week, and I feel like my wrinkles are going away. I am 52 and was thinking of getting fillers, but may be able to put it off a little longer. I have an old Android phone I used for this picture that they don't sell anymore, and didn't use any apps to filter it.

I've used several times but I can't tell how it's going to work because I can't get past all the fragrance in it. If there are natural oils why add perfume? I can't put it on before bed, the smell makes me nauseous. Most likely going to find someone to give it away to.

I've been using Strivectin Retinol night treatment and S.T.A.R oil for years but I was tempted by the vitamin C in this retinol product and tried it out. It's hands down excellent. I am 42, have normal to combination skin and due to some neglect in the last half of year I struggle with some fine lines under my eyes, puffy eyes and dark circles and dull, tired skin. I love this serum - nice consistency, spreads easily and sinks right in leaving no oiliness behind (even my otherwise oily nose and chin were rather matte after applying it). Very good for layering. Though I took few months break from retinol , I had no unpleasant reaction to the retinol so the formulation must be well made (I will apply it every other night this first week just to lean on the cautious side but I feel my skin could take it daily). In terms of effects, after the first night I woke up to the best skin I had in a long while. The most noticeable effect was on my eyes puffiness and dark circles - I followed the serum last night with my usual night cream , who does a decent job on its own but nothing even remotely comparable with what happened to my eyes literally overnight. I was contemplating some more invasing help - now thanks to this serum I have hope. Also, totally unexpected, it evened out my skin tone beyond belief. In my book, this is the best retinol product Strivectin has made yet (not to say that I don't like the others, I do and they always did good to me, but this one did nothing short of a miracle).

This is a miracle in a bottle! I have been using Strivectin since I was 20 as preventative skin care and I am now 30 and this is by far my favorite product they have put out!!! Don't think, just buy it!

it was okay. I have used better retinol. the fragrance was too strong for me
Anna from Manahawkin
I really wanted this product to work as this product might work wonders on some people it didn't for me. I did what is told always followed through with moisturizer afterwards of applying but it dried my skin out really bad I had a bad reaction my face swelled up and I have red patches all over my face. I don't normally write reviews but I thought this would be good information for some people who have somewhat sensitive skin because my skin isn't that sensitive but it is sensitive to this product.

This was an awesome find! It rolled back the years on my skin and left me bright and glowing for the holiday season!

Have this product a try but wasn't expecting too much but I was nicely surprised after using it for about a few weeks. It brightens my over all skin tone. Easy to use with the droplet provided and the serum isn't sticky at all. Buying 2nd bottle to stock up.
Jennifer J. from undisclosed
I use this every morning and my skin just glows. I am fair skinned with freckles. I love how much this brightens my skin. I follow it up with the tinted SPF moisturizer.

I've been using for awhile I can see a major change around my eyes and fine lines. It takes a small amount twice. Once in the morning and in the evening
Mina from Lancaster, ca
If you have sensitive skin do not use this! Made my skin feel like it was burning! I've used other vitamin C serums and they didn't feel like this one.
Barbara C. from undisclosed
I absolutely love everything about this serum! It contains the ingredients my skin loves and drinks it up. Oh and the smell is amazing. This is a game changer!!!!

I got a sample of this- about a months worth of product. I was curious to see if it would eliminate the malasma on my neck. I have tried Paula's Choice, Murad, The Ordinary, and Neora. None of them changed the color one bit. The discoloration is 50% gone after just a month. Now I am going to try it on my arms where I have weird reddish blotches from the sun. Its great on the face too lol

I use different strivectin serums but this one is my favorite.

Really liked this product and am on second bottle. However, my skin seems to be getting very dry even though I use a moisturizer with it (with retinol). Not sure which is causing this problem.
Samantha from Bradenton FL
I am 25 years old and was still having issues with pimples and skin irritation along with uneven skin tone. I had red areas on my face where inflammation was I'm guessing. Since using this product just once a day my acne is completely gone and no more redness or irritation. I've noticed it also tightens my skin and smooths out pores.
Pbhernandez from undisclosed
No change in skin lightning or wrinkles. I've been using for 8 months. I have medium skin tone with dark spots on cheeks and fine lines around eyes.
Lola from Il
I really thought this was going to be great, but the redish color stay inside the pores, I do not recommend.
Susan T. from undisclosed
This is an excellent, high quality product. I've tried other vitamin C serums but this formula works to reduce my dark spots and to brighten my skin.

I just started using StriVectin about a month ago and already seeing improvement in my skin and wrinkles
Janet A. from undisclosed
My skin looks bright, and feel so soft and smooth.
Robin Y. from undisclosed
This is making a difference in what I see in the mirror - particularly when used in conjunction with the Anti-Wrinkle SD Advanced Moisturizing Concentrate. I'm withholding a star because the scent is like bad cologne at a high school dance and makes my eyes water a bit.
Stephanie C. from undisclosed
Love this product. It brightens my skin and reduces pores.
Dal from Las Vegas
I received this product as a sample when I purchased the night cream and it works! I developed a big sun spot on my forehead from years of not wearing sunscreen. I tried other products that didn't work. After 2 weeks of night time only use, it's halfway gone! I will be purchasing the full size bottle when I'm done with the sample. I highly recommend you try this if you have stubborn sun spots!
