Say adios to dark undereye circles with StriVectin-EV™ Get Even Dark Circle Corrector.

StriVectin™

Birchbox Breakdown

In our efforts to fight the signs of aging, wrinkles and sagging are obvious targets, but sidled up next to them are age spots and discoloration. Whether simply from getting older or from spending a few too many hours in the sun, hyperpigmentation gets a run for its money with this highly potent brightening serum, which is clinically proven to be six times more effective than brightening actives alone (with four weeks of use). The secret is Strivectin’s proprietary NIA-114™ (niacin) molecule—it normalizes pigment transfer, thereby targeting the triggers that cause age, sun, and dark spots, and helps stimulate DNA repair. It also boosts the effectiveness of vitamin C, which stimulates the production of collagen and reduces the production of melanin. The result: more even, more youthful-looking skin.

I order Strivectin with high hopes. I had been using another company's product for age spots (which was working although slowly) and decided to try this. I noticed no difference in my skin after switching, and the price was substantially higher.

Amazing! <3

I bought this after doing much research on how to rid my skin of sun spots. I took pictures day 1 and day 14. Holy WOW! I'm hooked. I am religious about using it 2x a day as is recommended. I will buy again. Highly recommended. Looking forward to the one month pics :)

I had big expectations for this item being that I hold the brand to high standard. I Love most of the products they make. Not their best product. Does not smell good and results lack luster.

Love it!

It makes my skin feel smooth and the smell is terrific. Have purchased several and will continue to use in the future. I have many brown spots and hope they will fade with use. I have only used it for 2 weeks no noticeable fading of the brown spots yet.

it's working!

I purchased this along with the under-eye brightening serum and they are both working, slowly but surely! It has made my skin more even-toned and did not cause any acne or adverse reaction.

good stuff
Purchased

I have been using this for over two weeks. It feels great on the skin (not too heavy and somewhat hydrating). I do think that my skin looks a little bit better, but it is not a miracle worker. I am going to continue using it, but I probably won't be repurchasing it.

This changes everything.

This is the first face product that I've seen significant results with. Skin was brighter after one week of applying at morning and night. By week 2, sun spots and acne scars were fading. I've been using for a few months now with no plans to stop. This serum is a miracle for acne scars and fades recent freckles, but will not do anything for freckles that have been on your skin since your childhood. I don't need to wear foundation anymore and because of that, the large pores on my nose are noticeably smaller. I actually wish I had taken a before photo. You can find deals on Strivectin products you look around, but they unquestionably are worth the money.

Worked Quickly

I have been using this for about a week now and have already noticed a difference. I have sun damage around my eyes and on my forehead from years of tanning, but the spots around my eyes are barely noticeable after just a week of using. The sun spots on my forehead are more severe so it will probably take longer to fade, but in the meantime my skin is looking so much better. I worried that I would have a reaction since my skin is sensitive, but so far nothing bad has happened. It even cleared up the acne that was on my face and it has been clear since! I will warn, however, that if you are trying to get rid of acne scars or dark marks from past acne, this may not work as well for that. I haven't noticed those fading on my face as much, but at least it keeps my skin clear.

Gets worse before it gets better, but it does work!

This product has a great mild citrusy scent and smooths on with a light moisturizing effect and without any immediate irritation [which i am senstitive to]. However, it says right on the bottle that the first 2 weeks " accelerate exfoliation," and they're not kidding. I definitely have some scaly dry skin going on, but it's also helping with some blackheads, so I'm pushing through it. Be prepared to pair with a heavy moisturizer, and probably a good primer if you plan to wear makeup [I've been using Smashbox's Photo Finish to good effect]. As to it's intended use, it has definitely improved some sun damage already! I'm a great guinea pig for it as i have fair skin with some freckles, and spent the last 2 years in the Caribbean fighting the sun. I would recommend it, but people with dry or sensitive skin, apply once instead of twice a day.
