StriVectin is a skincare brand that has been a leader in the industry for over 20 years. I recall the success with which StriVectin launched in Bloomingdales while I worked there in the men’s furnishing department in my mid-twenties. The brand quickly gained popularity and had hundreds of women, and some men, lining up to buy their product StriVectin-SD Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks & Wrinkles. This anti-aging moisturizer was pretty much promising to be the holy grail of ever-lasting youth, possibly being better than Botox. Imagine marketing this possibility in a store nestled in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, where the crème de la crème of who is who in New York City’s high society lives. But, as someone who has always had an affinity for fragrances and skin care products (hence, most of my “work friends” worked in the fragrance section), I was one of those men who was also eager to try this product. Since then, StriVectin-SD Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks & Wrinkles, now Strivectin Anti-Wrinkle SD Advanced PLUS Intensive Moisturizing Concentrate with NIA-114 Technology, has been the skin care product I never go without.
StriVectin’s Anti-Wrinkle SD Advanced PLUS Intensive Moisturizing Concentrate with NIA-114 Technology is an advanced skincare product specifically designed to target and diminish the signs of aging for both women and men. It claims to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and stretch marks (the original purpose of this product until its anti-wrinkle effects were established). The concentrate is formulated with powerful ingredients that work to improve the skin’s overall texture, firmness, and elasticity.
One of the key ingredients in StriVectin’s Anti-Wrinkle SD Advanced PLUS Intensive Moisturizing Concentrate is NIA-114. This patented molecule is an optimized form of Niacin/Vitamin B3, known for strengthening the skin barrier and enhancing its resilience to environmental aggressors. While promoting the production of collagen and elastin, NIA-114, now found throughout all StriVectin products, enhances the performance of other ingredients to improve the skin’s elasticity, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance.
Anti-Wrinkle SD Advanced PLUS also contains hyaluronic acid. Known for its exceptional hydrating properties, hyaluronic acid can attract and retain moisture in the skin, keeping it plump and supple. This helps to reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles, giving the skin a more youthful and refreshed look. Other key ingredients include copper tripeptide, which targets ten types of collagen to help reduce wrinkles and stretch marks, and proprietary sea salt. This exclusive StriVectin technology increases moisturization and diminishes lines and wrinkles.
When comparing StriVectin’s Anti-Wrinkle SD Advanced PLUS Intensive Moisturizing Concentrate with NIA-114 Technology with other anti-wrinkle products, it is important to consider its key ingredients, effectiveness, and value for money. While several effective anti-wrinkle products are available in this competitive and growing market, StriVectin concentrate stands out with its unique blend of NIA-114 and key ingredients such as hyaluronic acid. In my personal experience, this has been the most effective product I have tried for my skin. When I stopped using it to try other products, I could notice the difference in my skin within weeks, resulting in a loss in hydration, elasticity, and plumpness, all regained when using StriVectin’s Anti-Wrinkle SD Advanced PLUS again.
After using StriVectin’s Anti-Wrinkle SD Advanced for nearly two decades, I can confidently say that this moisturizing anti-aging cream is a product I could never be without. In my experience, it truly lives up to its claims. The visible reduction in fine lines, improved texture and firmness of the skin, and the overall youthful glow it provides make it worth the investment. While it may be on the pricier side at $164 for 4 oz, the results speak for themselves. Additionally, as it is a concentrate, a little product goes an incredibly long way. Even when applied in the morning and evening, a 4 oz container can last several months. If you are looking for an effective anti-wrinkle solution, the StriVectin Anti-Wrinkle SD Advanced PLUS Intensive Moisturizing Concentrate is definitely worth your try.
