The biggest compliment I’ve been receiving lately is how amazing my skin looks at the age of 33! I will say that my Mom has always taken great care of her skin and it definitely shows. She would say, “it’s never too early to take good care of your skin”, and I can say it’s most certainly paid off in the long run.
I love trying new skincare products and seeing how it helps over time. Coming off of a summer in the sun my skin was in need of a little TLC… it was looking a little dull and splotchy so I knew I had to switch up my current routine if I wanted to see results. Just like anything else we do, our skin gets used to regimens when used for a long period of time – so if you’re wanting to see changes you need to try new products every once in a while. With the StriVectin line of skincare launching at Ulta I decided to add in a few of their products to see how they helped. I decided to try the new StriVectin S.T.A.R. Light Retinol Night Oil and since I was in need of a new daytime moisturizer I chose the StriVectin Advanced Retinol Day Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 30.
The night oil is applied to a clean face at night before (or mixed with) your moisturizer. It’s said to correct the look of fine lines and wrinkles as well as help with texture and uneven skin tone, all of which I was looking to improve! I applied a few drops directly to my clean skin and was pleasantly surprised that it went on clear and had a dry finish (I know a lot of people think an “oil” will make you look or feel oily, but this didn’t!). I loved that even on my usually sensitive skin I had zero irritation with this light oil and loved how my skin was looking after only a few uses.
I was excited to give the Retinol Day Moisturizer a try since it claims to target visible signs of aging as well as having broad spectrum SPF 30! I ALWAYS wear SPF during the day so the fact that it was already added into this moisturizer was a huge plus! I’ve never used a daytime product with Retinol in it and I loved the idea of improving my skin during the day as well as what I was doing at night – it seemed extra beneficial and so far I can see a big difference. This moisturizer goes on so light while giving me the amount of moisture I need under my makeup. So far I am thrilled with the results I see and my skin seems more even in tone and extra glowy!
If you’re in the market for new skincare products I would suggest checking out these two items! The full line is currently available at Ulta and it’s definitely worth trying out!
