JOY’S BEAUTY REVIEW – StriVectin-SD Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks and Wrinkles

Submitted by on Monday, 4 April 201112 Comments

 “Clinically proven to improve the appearance of stretch marks and facial wrinkles in just 2-8 weeks. Improves visible discolorations and hydrates throughout to improve overall elasticity, texture and tone of skin.” – Stri-Vectin SD   

This is a BIG statement, but when the makers of Stri-Vectin SD say “clinically proven”, it’s not just lip service. The company went as far as analyzing skin biopsies from clinical study participants. Results of the testing were notable ranging from an average 25% decrease in deep facial wrinkles to 100% improvement in skin texture.   

There are lots of products that make similar claims so what makes Stri-Vectin SD unique?   

I’m glad you asked!  It’s the NIA-114 TM– an exclusive form of Niacin (B3) (Niacin in the form of Nicotinic Acid) which yields greater epidermal renewal, wound healing, and pigmentation benefits.  Stri-Vectin is the only product on the market to use this highly active form of Niacin and NIA-114 TM was chosen by the National Cancer Institute for development as a possible skin cancer prevention agent.     

Joy’s Thoughts  
So here are my thoughts.  I was curious to find out how Stri-Vectin would perform on the deep wrinkles in my neck, slight wrinkles on my forehead, and multiple dark spots on my face.  With the first application I noted the light feel and cooling, minty fragrance of the lotion. When applied to the skin, that minty fragrance carried over into a slight tingle which was refreshing.  


I have continued using the product twice daily for 6 weeks.  Although my skin tends to be sensitive, I have experienced no negative side effects of the moisturizer and even though I do not have a biopsy to prove it, my results do seem to coincide with the manufacturer’s claims:    

With continued use, twice a day, for eight weeks, you will see: 

Week 2:     Natural collagen and moisture resurging with texture and resilience improving   

Week 4:     Natural cell turnover intensifying while visibly fading discolorations 

Week 8:     Elasticity reinforcing with wrinkles and stretch marks visibly diminishing   

Stri-Vectin SD Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks and Wrinkles is formulated without parabens, synthetic fragrances or synthetic dyes which is great for anyone with sensitive skin such as myself.  
Stri-Vectin SD Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks and Wrinkles retails for $135 and can be purchased at Sephora or at
