Beauty Buzz. New StriVectin-SD™Discovery Kit…a Review & Giveaway!

December 13, 2010 • Beauty, Yahoo

So you know me, I have to try anything I recommend. And trust me, there are a lot of products I don't report on that I have tried because I just don't think they are that good.

For the past 2 weeks I have been using the New StriVectin-SD™Discovery Kit shown above. It consists of a scrub primer, an eyeline fighter and a facial wrinkle fighter. These products have all been reformulated. StriVectin’s chief scientists and product developers literally went back to the lab to re-think skin care with a power-packed new formula for revved-up results, clinically proven to rebuild healthier, more resilient, younger-looking skin, layer by layer.

“We started with a goal: create the most effective age-fighting product ever,” said Jill Scalamandre, Chief Marketing Officer.  “So we powered up the original StriVectin with even more potent collagen-boosting peptides and re-engineered the formula with technology discovered in DNA skin cancer research to accelerate the rebuilding of skin layers and to improve overall skin health for truly amazing, visible results.”

In just eight weeks of using the new StriVectin-SD™, test subjects demonstrated a 20% decrease in fine lines and wrinkles, 25% improvement in skin laxity, and nearly 100% improvement in texture.  Plus, significantly, StriVectin-SD™ was shown to increase skin barrier function by 40% for overall long-term skin health benefits.

At the heart of the matter is NIA-114™, a multi-patented, proprietary technology rooted in 30 years of research into DNA repair and skin cancer prevention.  Bringing a new level of medical research and rigor to skin care, this technology, combined with peptides utilized in the original StriVectin formula plus additional powerful actives, yields exceptional anti-aging and skin repair results, clinically proven to reverse the visible and cellular effects of skin damage over time.

How has this new StriVectin-SD™ been reformulated?

•  Increased peptide levels 4X to stimulate a higher-quality of collagen, and affect more types of collagen to aggressively fight deep wrinkles.
•  Super-charged the formula with ceramides, antioxidants (Resveratrol®, Swiss cress sprouts, apple stem cells) and sodium hyaluronate to further enhance firmness, protect skin quality and re-densify texture.
•  Substituted more efficacious botanicals to significantly improve stretch marks’ color, length, depth, tone and texture.
•  Added a maximum % of our patented NIA-114™ molecule (Niacin in the form of Nicotinic Acid) to stimulate DNA repair, generate energy and build the skin barrier, which will help to hold high-quality collagen and moisture in the skin longer.

StriVectin conducted a 12-wwek trial study and here is what subjects saw in the mirror by using the new StriVectin-SD™ twice a day for 8 weeks:

Week 2:    Natural collagen resurging; texture and resilience improving
Week 4:    Natural cell turnover intensifying; visibly fading discolorations
Week 8:    Elasticity reinforcing; wrinkles and stretch marks visibly diminishing

Now as I said I have been using the kit for 2 weeks, but already I am noticing a big improvement in my skin and I keep getting compliments. I particularly love the Instant Retexturizing Scrub! My face feels so smooth after using it and it is not drying or harsh at all!

    sun spots
    fine lines
