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 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.

Noticeable difference
Sampled

I received a sample and decided to do an at home test by putting the strivectin on my right eye and my normal eye cream on my left. Within 2-3 weeks, the lines around the eye I was treating with strivectin had diminished!! It's a fantastic, rich, effective eye cream!

Effective

I am at an age where anything that might help is worth a go. For me this made improvements and though the sample is small it is also a full tube, you don't need much so it does go a long way!

nice under eye cream
Sampled

seems to absorb into the skin well - does not have any significant smell to it and my skin felt well hydrated after application. If applying as a PM eye cream it did not seem to hydrate throughout the evening.

just get retin-a
Sampled

I don't know why people spend so much money on these antiaging products when you can just get a prescription for Retin-A that actually works. I hated receiving this in my box. StriVectin does nothing for anti-aging. The brand is only good for moisturizing.

so refreshing
Sampled

i love this eye cream - it feels amazingly moisturizing when i get out of the shower at night. Plus, knowing that it contains retinol is an added bonus. i'm obsessed with finding products to keep from showing signs of aging, and i feel that this at least delays the inevitable. I'm not sure that it actually would reverse wrinkles, but for prevention I like it a lot. Be wary of using it in the morning as retinol can make your skin much more sensitive to sunburns and you would need to wear extra SPF.

Expensive, but great brand works good

This is a bit pricey, but it does work you just not right away. You have to use it for a while to see visible results.

This product <3

I loved this product. It makes a very noticeable difference with even just the first use. Maybe it's the placebo effect but I look so much better when I put wear this under my makeup. I like the texture/consistency and it absorbs quickly. I will definitely use all of the sample and consider buying the full size.

Didn't notice a difference
Sampled

I am still searching for an eye product that will give me noticeable results. Maybe it will take me more time with this product to see any changes but so far, I can't tell what it does. I trust it is working on the skin around my eyes still. Will update if I notice a change.

Works nicely.

I like this product, it seems to help nicely, but would never be able to afford it. $75 is just too much.

Meh

It has a nice creamy and smooth texture so it applies easily however after 2 weeks of use I saw no appreciable difference. I also started getting redness/flaking skin under one eye. Not sure if it's the direct cause but I didn't change anything else in my skincare routine.
