My husband has amazing skin. I mean, the man is 30 years old and doesn’t have smile wrinkles. Seriously? How is that even fair? I hope he goes bald or something because I don’t want it to look like I robbed the cradle when we’re together. It could also be because he doesn’t smile as much as I do, but that’s beside the point. This is us 10 years ago. Not nearly as many wrinkles, you see?!
But that is my biggest fear about aging. Aging seems to elude the man I married, and I have to keep up. That is why I am all about products that will take the edge off. Like I said, I know it’s going to happen, it’s about finding ways to do it gracefully. Our skin has two types of collagen in the skin: Collagen III, or Youth Collagen, and Collagen I, the kind found in older skin and scar tissue. Obviously we want more of the former but as we get older, the balances leans more toward the latter. How can we fix this? The answer is trying to balance them out.
I was sent StriVectin SD Advanced™ wrinkle fighting moisturizer, the product introduced to balance these two collagens out, to try out for a couple weeks. It was rigorously tested in clinical trials where their panelists reported that their skin looked plumped, renewed and rejuvenated. Starting in just 15 days, 91% saw healthier skin, 88% saw extremely nourished and restored skin, and 74% saw dramatically improved skin. Here is a picture of me after using it for about two weeks.
I am wearing makeup but the photo is completely untouched on my face. You can obviously see that I still have wrinkles around my eyes, but let’s be real, if there was a product that got rid of those in less than two weeks, I’d buy stock in it. Here’s the benefits that I did see. My face felt very moisturized and healthy. I used the product in the morning and evenings after I washed my face with my usual face wash which can leave my skin dry. This is definitely very moisturizing and rejuvenating. It’s hard to show in the pictures, but I noticed my skin tone is more balanced. I have some spots on the side of my face and I noticed that they are diminishing. That makes me happy. My skin felt nourished and restored. It’s a thick cream so I thought it would make me breakout having it on through the night or putting it on under my makeup. It didn’t. Instead my face felt like it was getting what it needed. Does that make sense? All in all I really liked what I saw. I liked it enough to continue using the product because I really think I will continue to see great results. Like I said, anything to help me keep up with my anti-aging husband!
