Repair & Protect with StriVectin Broad Spectrum Moisturizer

SCIENCE YOU CAN BELIEVE IN, RESULTS YOU CAN SEE.

At StriVectin they believe in only one thing: The Power of what works.


StriVectin reached out to me some months ago to test their  Repair & Protect Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 and because I am a lover of all things makeup and skincare I said yes. I also have a surprise for my readers. But you have to read through in order to find out what the surprise is. But back to this moisturizer.  This moisturizer claims to repair the past and protect the future.

StriVectin Repair & Proect Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is a new formula that includes their most powerful combination of anti-aging technologies to repair the past and protect the future. Their patented technology NIA-144 which in time will reduce fine lines and wrinkles & enhances  youth collagen for a fresher, younger looking skin which we tend to lose collagen as we age. StriVectin is a lightweight moisturizer with a protective formula...

It is scientifically proven to:
  • Reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles by enhancing collagen and elastin
  • Help Skin retain natural moisture with ingredients that maintain optimal hydration regardless of climate.
  • Protect against UV damage with broad spectrum SPF 30
[TIP] It is recommended by dermatologists to use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. 

Let's talk more about the patented molecule that is THE CENTER OF ALL OF STRIVECTIN'S PRODUCTS: NIA-114

This molecule was invented by two biochemist searching for a cure to skin cancer. StiVectin then discover that NIA-144 revitalizes, hydrates, and transforms the skin. NIA-144 is a extremely unique advanced technology that nourishes the skin surface to address multiple visible signs of aging and to give the skin a more healthy and radiant appearance.  No only does this formula claim to hydrate and nourish the skin, but it inhibits the impact of environmental aggressors.

Some of the active ingredients in this product are: 

The Active Ingredients are :
  • Avobenzone
  • Dimethicone
  • homosolate
  • octisalate
  • octocrylene
  • oxybenzone
Now some of these active ingredients have pros and cons. 



Most of these active ingredients are forms of sunscreen. Dimethicone is a emollient more like a silicone base. I have integrated this moisturizer into my routine. I don't use it daily because  I have products that I personally love more but if I"m wearing makeup and I need that instant protection if I feel I'm going to be in the sun then I will use this product and here is why. Like most sunscreen it leaves a white cast and for a woman that is deeply hued it's just not sexy. So when I do use this product it is only if I'm going to apply makeup over it. It does have some form of fragrance and normally I am against fragrance in skincare but it's a light florally scent so you can't smell it right off but once applied you can smell it but I'm no fan of fragrance in skincare. I feel it defeats the purpose to me but as I said the fragrance is not strong at all


So let's recap and  list my PROS & CONS

PROS
  • It's is moisturizing & locks in moisture
  • It protects the skin
  • It is light weight
  • Love the packaging
  • And the ingredients in the product will give you lasting results, 
CONS
  • Because of the sunscreen built into the moisturizer it leaves a ghostly cast on my skin which I'm not much of a fan of 
  • It does contain fragrance which I'm not much of a fan of and if you have sensitive skin this is not the best idea 


So I told you all at the beginning of this post that I had a surprise for you all. Welp not only did  +StriVectin gift me with a product to review but they gifted me with two! DOUBLE THE FUN! So I am giving the extra moisturizer away to one of my readers. So I will make a separate post for the giveaway!

I would like to thank StriVectin for being so patient with me and giving me the opportunity to review their product. Stay tuned for the giveaway. Once it is posted I will post a link on here directing you to the giveaway.
