Skin Care: StriVectin Tightening Neck Cream

A couple of weeks¬†ago, I mentioned on snapchat and my insta stories that I’ve been testing out¬†StriVectin TL Advanced‚ĄĘ Light Tightening Neck Cream¬†(which was supplied to me by the brand, as a sample), and I promised to report back.¬†I’ve only been using it for 21 days, so I think it’s a little too soon to determine its long term results — but I’ve been loving it, so far. Helena and I have both been testing it out, as we do. Skin care dominates many of our conversations;¬†we also have a group text with our friend Amy, where we swap new favorite products.¬†That’s why¬†you’ll often see some overlap in our routines. It’s not a coincidence! Sharing is caring.

I’ll definitely check back in with you all (and my mom, who has also been inquiring!), once I finish the whole jar, because the biggest determining factor in “Is this going to be a regular part of my routine?” is the purchase of a replacement. I’m pretty confident that I¬†will be buying a second jar, because I skipped it for a couple of days and ended up feeling¬†like something was missing.¬†Simply put: I love the texture, and¬†I love the way it makes my neck feel. It firms, but not in that itchy, tight and dry way. It’s really hydrating and thick, but not heavy or greasy.¬†I also want to note that I’ve been testing out the¬†light version, not the original formula, since a few of you asked. I haven’t tried the original, so I can’t compare¬†— but I really like the consistency of this one. It’s kind of like pudding. A little bit goes a long way, so don’t go overboard. 1. You’ll get those product rolls…you know what I mean? What doesn’t get absorbed will end up balling up. 2. You’ll waste product. Don’t do that!

Now, I should mention: I know I don’t have too much to firm up,¬†and I’m lucky that I’ve yet to see any wrinkles forming on my face. But I have been gradually getting more pronounced neck bands, which StriVectin refers to ¬†as “tech neck,” due to¬†constantly looking down at our phones and computers. It’s¬†a funny/sad and oh-so-appropriate name for it. I’ve always used the same moisturizer on my neck as my face, because¬†you don’t¬†necessarily need a neck-exclusive cream, and can supplement with serum or oil for added benefits. But¬†if you’re like me and use a lightweight moisturizer on your face, you might want something a little more substantial for your neck. And if you’re really¬†like me, you might not realize that until you try it. Whatever you do, don’t neglect your neck, because it’s extra prone to aging.¬†Which leaves me with this question: have you tried¬†StriVectin TL Advanced‚ĄĘ Light Tightening Neck Cream? If so, what are your thoughts?

    I’ll need to check out this cream. As I’m getting older I find the skincare is so insanely important. I already do try to keep my skin moisturized and out of the sun…but I am still on the hunt for the perfect creams. As my Great Great Aunt would always say, “It’s never too soon to start using wrinkle cream.”
