This is one of those products that took me awhile to get around to reviewing because I really wanted to make sure I was giving it a good, honest review. I mean, it’s $99, I don’t want to risk anyone buying it and not liking it! Lucky for me I managed to pick up this swanky StriVectin product from the iFabbo shop, otherwise I’d never have been able to afford it. But, honestly, I’m already worried about running out of it…
So here it is, the StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner. It claims to reduce the appearance of pores overnight and and overall approve the look of pores and skin long term. It can be used both day and night, and is suggested to be the last step in your skin care routine.
I didn’t really trust any of the things StriVectin was saying. I’ve had large pores my whole life, and had always been told there wasn’t much you could do for them. I figured maybe it’d work a little, after all it IS $99. The surprise was, it actually really does work. My pores are shrinking…
I’ve never used a product with Retinol before, so I’ve been keeping my use to every other day or so to see how my skin reacts to it. After about a month of use I haven’t noticed any issue with the Retinol, and instead have seen quite a difference in my skin. I had heard Retinol was a good ingredient for large pores before, but the products are usually expensive so I’d never used it.
The Advanced Pore Refiner also has anti-aging benefits, so it can be a great product for those who don’t suffer from large pores!
I had expected the product to be a serum, but it’s more of a cream. As per the directions, I apply after my moisturizer. I focus on my cheeks and chin where my pores are the largest, and a little on my forehead where I am started to notice some lines (eek).
I had used a few samples of StriVectin products before and liked them, but could never actually tell if they were doing much for me. I now know I NEED to try more products from StriVectin, they clearly know what they are doing!
If you’ve got $99 or a coupon to spend, and have had issues with large pores, you need to try this product. The Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner is a miracle in a shiny silver tube. I haven’t been this happy with my skin in years!
I’m going to continue to use the StriVectin Advanced Pore Refiner as part of my skin care routine, and look forward to seeing where this whole tube can take me. It’s so great having a product you really can see a difference with. Shows that sometimes expensive skincare is expensive for a reason!
