Disclosure: I received samples to facilitate my review. This is my honest opinion only. You may have a different outcome/opinion.
My skin has changed so much over the last 3 three years. The products I used to like just don't work for me anymore. I had bad acne during my teens and even had breakouts until I was almost 30. Oily skin was a problem until just recently. Now I tend to get dry areas on my cheeks, with a little oil on my t-zone.
I actually had dry patches around my mouth and chin this winter, something I never thought I would see. Washing my face twice a day was making it worse. It was then that I knew I needed a much better moisturizer.
Now that the weather has warmed up, I have been spending time outside, doing yard work. I wanted to get as much outdoor time as I could before the really hot weather arrived! The thing with that is worrying about getting skin cancer, which so many people I know have experienced already.
Thanks to using Strivectin Repair & Protect Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 during the past month, I have had the softest skin I've experienced since I was young. I used it on my face and neck each morning after cleansing and was impressed with how quickly it absorbed into my skin.
I was skeptical at first because I hate sunscreen - it smells awful and makes your skin feel like it's weighed down and sticky. This product wasn't like that at all, but I did notice the sunscreen "stink" the first week of use.
After that, I must have gotten used to it, and no longer noticed it anymore. I had absolutely no breakouts and the deep crease I've developed between my eyebrows (from squinting) has diminished in size already (my "selfie" doesn't show it, I will have to post in another month to show results). I love it!
Now onto more about the product itself... It is a lightweight, protective formula that uses patented NIA-114 to enhance skin's defense and boost its age fighting abilities. It is proven to:
- Reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles by enhancing collagen and elastin
- Protect against UV damage with broad spectrum SPF 30
- Helps skin retain natural moisture with ingredients that maintain optimal hydration regardless of climate
It is recommended to apply liberally all over your cleansed face in the morning, at least 15 minutes before sun exposure and then as needed throughout the day. A 1.7 oz. jar retails for $89. You can choose to get auto-renew so you never run out. Find out more at their website at strivectin.com, and on their social channels:
