Who wants beautiful skin?

I'd like to take the time and share some information I have on some wonderful skincare products. There are so many different directions I can take with this subject and instead of doing a generic general synopsis I would like to take my time and dissect the different areas of skin care and focus on specifics. So with that said, here we go!

I've been doing an experiment over the last few months that I'm excited to share with all of you. Kline-Becker, the makers of StriVectin-SD, sent me a very generous package with several different pieces of their products. I had always been curious about the "miracle cream" that I heard so much about. Especially since I've had a couple of kids and genetics proved to be unfortunately cruel with my UN-elastic skin. The stretch marks came and never went away. Faded of course but still remained. I decided to give StriVectin a go. I have to admit, I was totally skeptical and pretty sure it wasn't going to work. But I made a decision to remain faithful to my new regime of applying the light minty smelling cream on at least 3-5 times a week. I liked the consistency of the cream right away. It was light weight and absorbed very quickly. The scent was light enough for me to still wear my other favorite body lotions (which I'll post about later) and perfumes. After about six weeks I was personally able to see a difference. Crazy, huh?!

Whoa! This stuff really works. So I started using StriVectin-SD eye cream along with a powerful antioxdient face moisturizer they sent me. Even with the summer sun taking a toll on my skin and delicate eyes from all the squinting I think I can really see a difference. My skin looks pretty and clear and my pores are tiny and almost nonexistent! Gosh, I am so impressed by these products. I also have StriVectin HC and NE which are hand treatments to help with dark spots and the look of aging hands. I may not necessarily need these two pieces of product but I am loving how soft my hands feel and how good it makes my nails and cuticles look. Especially when I am touching the faces of brides and other clients. My hands are very important in how they look and feel.

My expectations of StriVectin have been far surpassed--to say the least. I recommend this product to anyone who has stretch marks that make them feel uncomfortable in the skin that they are in. This product can really make a big difference. If stretch marks aren't an issue for you but some fine lines around the eyes are, you won't be disappointed in the eye cream. Seriously, these products are amazing. I am currently using them all. I even just started using some deep wrinkly serum on a scar that I have to see if it will smooth it out at all. I'll keep you posted on my my findings. Go check out this stuff at: StriVectin!
