Get the same retinol results while also protecting your skin from harmful rays with StriVectin-AR™ Advanced Retinol Day Treatment with Broad Spectrum SPF 30.

StriVectin™

Birchbox Breakdown

Bring on the cat videos, The Onion articles, and episodes of The Colbert Report. Thanks to this eye cream, we’re not afraid of laugh lines and eye crinkles. The antiaging formula gently nourishes sensitive skin around the eyes, resulting in a smoother texture and more even tone, and minimizes dark circles and puffiness. The treatment has become an essential part of our nightly ritual, right along with brushing our teeth, setting our alarm, and falling asleep playing Candy Crush.

How it Works

StriVectin’s award-winning formula includes powerful antiaging actives NIA-114 (a form of niacin) and retinol to battle the signs of aging and reveal renewed skin without causing irritation. NIA-114 activates and ramps up retinol’s effects while it also reduces retinol sensitivity. And nourishing shea butter lends a hand in the hydration department. The result is a paraben-free, noncomedogenic cream that’s effective, yet gentle enough to use on your delicate undereye area.

How to Use

Morning and night, use your ring finger to gently pat a small amount to the area around eyes. Retinol may make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so don’t forget to wear sunblock during the day.

Nice product

I've used retinal products before. This was a nice one, it definitely felt like it was doing something but I didn't notice a visual difference. Of course it's possible that the sample just wasn't big enough to give that kind of result.

Who doesn't love eye cream

I feel like I see results from so many eye creams. Most of us just don't properly moisturize the delicate skin around our eyes. This treatment was no exception. I liked it!

lovely

Although I have my favorites allready I enjoyed using this as a change of pace. Nice addition to my travel bag.
I always use Strivectin when an important trip or event is coming up. Its a bit pricey and not so natural so its not something I choose to use on a daily basis.

Works great! Doesn't irritate my eyes

I really liked this eye cream. I always put eye cream on before I go to bed, and then I sit up and read for about an hour. Sometimes with other eye cream, it will start to run after 30 minutes or so and irritate my eyes and they'll start to water. This cream stayed in place though, and it made the skin under my eyes feel soft. I'd probably buy it.

Decent moisturizer - Dark Circle remover...my foot!

Listen, so I know strivectin is the new thing in anti-aging, so I went with it, and in fact really enjoyed the moisturizing that it did, however I have yet to find a mythological product that does in fact do anything for dark undereye circles. Without the inclusion of some caffeine type substance to get the blood moving, it just is pretty impossible according to all reliable sources.

WOW.

My husband can tell a difference! We both can, but the fact that he can really says something! We have both noticed the lines disappearing and circles are lighter! This would be something to save your points and splurge on!

It works!

This is the first product I have used that has had any noticeable results! I have used it day and night for a month, applying sparingly. My make goes right over the top very easily. It has really tightened up the skin under my eyes. I will definitely be purchasing more.

Non-greasy eye cream

I love that this doesn't feel goopy and heavy around my eyes. I've been looking for a good eye cream and am so happy to be able to try this one.

Strong stuff

This, like most retinol products for me, must be used in moderation - every other day can sometimes even be too frequent. Unfortunately there is no information on the percentage/dosing of retinol in the product. That would be helpful when deciding which retinol product to buy. I also did not see much of a different after using it, but will persevere and see if anything changes.
