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


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.

I have been using this product for 30 days. Maybe I skipped a day or two here or there but I have been pretty consistent. It is LIFECHANGING.

My skin has never looked better! My usually oblivious fiance commented on how smooth and glowing and clear it is. Even those pesky monthly breakouts have been eliminated. It's incredible!

AND is SO easy. It's literally one step in the morning. It's my moisturizer, serum, and SPF all in one. It creates an amazing base for makeup and isn't drying or greasy. I will be a life long user of this product (if I can afford it)!

It is expensive, but one tube will last you a while. Going by how much I've used in one month of daily use, I expect this to last at least three months, maybe four. If it takes the place of three products in the morning, it's just about worth the price tag.

Also here's a tip: If i dispense too much for my face in my morning pre-coffee stupor, I put what's left on the backs of my hands. They look amazing now too :)

Love this

I just started using this last week and I have to say I love it- especially for the winter time! It smells so so so so wonderful, and that's something that's important to me since I end up smelling it all day. My face feels really hydrated vs some other moisturizers that my face seems to suck up the second I put it on. This leaves a nice glow and works great under my CC cream. I hate that it's on the more expensive side, but it's totally worth it!

Not sure

The scent and texture is ok, I liked how it felt in my skin but the size of the sample did not help to see results.

What a combination

This is a brilliant two-in one item that many people have been asking for!
Instead of having to buy two products...one that takes care of the damage and another that care of the sensitivity to sunlight than Retinol can cause.
It is genius.

Not sure...

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

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

...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.....
