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!

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.

Makes my face sting!
Sampled

This is a true Retinol product. I know this because it made my face sting like other Retinol products! I've not noticed any difference in the fine lines under my eyes.

to oily for daytime
Sampled

I don't think I'm getting the full effect for this eye cream. The directions say to apply twice a day once in the morning and evening but for me it is way too oily to use in the morning. I wouldn't pay $75 for the limited improvement I saw.

Okay

I was excited to try this because I have really bad dark circles under my eyes but after using the whole bottle, I unfortunately don't see a difference. I like the smell though!

I loved this product!

Firms without caking makeup that is applied on top. Texture is great, goes on smooth, absorbs quickly without sticky residue.

Interesting Product
Sampled

This product is pretty interesting. Since I've been receiving a bunch of facial creams in my subscription boxes I'm not sure how soon I will be using this. Nothing about it jumps out and makes me want to use it immediately.

Younger looking eyes Not impossible after all
Sampled

I was a skeptic about this product I've tried so many And none worked. After 3 or 4 days I started noticing the darkness getting lighter and the lines not as noticiable. After a month wow!!! And as a bonus a little goes a long ways with this one

I love this stuff. Especially this brand I have a really great experience with in the past and I use it every night before sleep. They definitely gave me enough to use it for a while!

Less noticeable
Sampled

I have been looking for a new eye cream and when I received this sample, I was so happy to give it a try. I used it for 2 weeks and really saw a difference around my eyes. The fine lines seemed to be less noticeable and the area much smoother. I would definitely recommend this product to others. You will notice a difference.
