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.

I saw an immediate difference
Sampled

After three uses of Strivectin-AR, I began to see results with puffiness around my eyes being reduced. This is a product that will become a staple in my regimen.

Strivectin is my friend!
Sampled

I am a StriVectin believer! I am over 40 and could use a little help in the under-eye department. I adore this retinol treatment! I could see results in just days after use. My cabinet will never be lacking of this gem...ever.

The jury is still out
SampledPurchased

I liked the way the sample felt so I thought I would give the full size a try. I use it every night. My eyes do seem to look a little softer and less dry, but it's an area that's really hard to tell. I'd love to believe this is making a big difference, but not sure I believe any eye cream can do wonders. I am interested to see if things are super noticable after a full tube.

Perfect for that sensitive area

I've just started using eye creams thanks to BirchBox. This stuff is perfect for that sensitive area around the eyes and a bonus - it fights aging!

does what it says
Sampled

I have used this sample several times, like that it is not greasy feeling and odorless. I also like that it is meant for the eye region, it's hard to find a quality retinol product that is delicate enough. I would definitely get this again.

Good product

I have had a lot of success with other products from this brand. I noticed a decrease in the dark circles under my eye so overall I was very pleased with this product.

Worth the investment.
SampledPurchased

I've been skeptical of this product for a long time. If I hadn't received this as a sample I wouldn't have tried it. I used a small amount under my eyes morning and evening for about 3 weeks. It took a bit to see any changes, but when I did, AMAZING. Took the fine lines away, dryness is gone, no dark circles.
Ordered the full size.... My friend also did after seeing my results!

Works for me!

I thought this eye cream would be too drying of the tender area..but I love it. I really do think I have seen a change! I would recommend it - I use a.m. and p.m!

Ok

I have used this several times and dont really notice anything but I will say, I havent used it with any real consistancy so I suppose its not a completely fair review.

Should work better for the price!

I was psyched to get this, as I have always wanted to try it and at age 36 I've been getting some fine lines under my eyes. I used the entire tube over the course of a month and saw no improvement whatsoever. If anything the wrinkles looked a little worse. I was disappointed because this supposedly has some strong wrinkle fighting ingredients in it.
