If you prefer a tinted or color correcting day cream, try Strivectin Clinical Corrector™ Advanced Anti-Aging Face Tint with Broad Spectrum SPF 30.

StriVectin™

Birchbox Breakdown

While we spend the day at the office creating Excel macros, strategizing campaigns, and trying out our favorite products, we figure our skin can do a little work too. This day treatment helps rejuvenate skin, even tone, and diminish fine lines, resulting in a fresher, more youthful visage. The paraben-free, non-comedogenic formula also has broad spectrum SPF 30 protection to protect skin against future damage. We think we’ll take our lunch break outside.

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. Because it doesn’t have retinol’s usual side effects (think: redness and irritation) and does have added UVA/UVB protection, this cream is great for fighting the signs of aging during daytime hours. The deeply nourishing formula plumps, smooths, and leaves complexions more radiant.

How to Use

Apply liberally (and gently) to clean skin in the morning, at least 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply every two hours—and add a water resistant SPF if you’re sweating or swimming.

Not sure...
Sampled

How can you tell if a retinoid works after just one sample use. Sure it didn't burn my skin or create redness but really I have no idea what the effects will or will not be in weeks to months it takes for something like this to work or not work.

Fresh Clear Face
Sampled

A little goes a long way. The sample was small but provided me with a few days of treatment. After the treatment, I noticed a slight difference in my crow's feet lines and laugh lines. It wasn't too noticeable but i could see the difference looking at my before and after photos. This product didn't cause redness that usually accompanies products similar to this one. I highly recommend this product.

5-star anti-aging day cream with 3-star sun protection
Purchased

...so I averaged it out and gave it 4 stars. The anti-aging is truly top-notch. Fountain of youth. Doesn't break me out or irritate my sensitive skin. But I think the SPF rating of 30 is overstated. It works like a 10 or 15 at best. If you use another product with SPF on top of it you'll be fine, and the other benefits still make this well worth it.

a must have

this lotion is amazing... not only does it have so many advantages for aging skin but it has a 30SPF, which most do not have and is a must have when you live south.....

Wonderful product
Purchased

I ordered this product not really sure if it would be worth the money but after using it for only a few days I notice a much smoother look to my skin. I am very pleased and will order it again.

Not an ideal combination

I'm an esthetician, and I've always followed the thinking that retinol is best used in a night cream since that is when your skin repairs itself. I would think the combination of sunscreen and retinol would be irritating for some skin types as well.

This product was not for me. I didn't think this was anything I would use daily.

I hear good things, but...
Sampled

I have always heard good things about this brand, but it strikes me as super pricey. I just can't shell out that much money without having sampled it for a while (particularly since my concerns are more long-term). If a dermatologist recommended one of these products, I might consider investing.
