Color Care by StriVectin HAIR – Ageless Beauty

Leave it to StriVectin to not only come out with a new terrific haircare line but to add in a product I’ve never used before even after having color treated hair for dozens of years. I received the opportunity to try out StriVectinHAIR Color Care Starter Trio and was eager to have the experience. Now that I’m using it, I’m thrilled.

This travel size set is the perfect way to know if StriVectin HAIR is for you. There’s a 2 fl oz bottle of Color Care Shampoo, a 2 fl oz bottle of Color Care Conditioner, and the product that makes this even more special – a 1 oz tube of Color Care Vibrancy Booster. The Color Care Trio has lasted me for several weeks and I’m not finished with the 3 products.

I haven’t enjoyed washing my hair this much in months. I love how my hair looks and feels after using this. Why do you want this? I’m sure it’s for the same reasons I do. If you color treat your hair you want to use products that are very gentle yet effective. Products that help you retain color and keep it from fading. What makes StriVectin different is that it’s formulated with “NIA-114™ and Chromalast Protein Complex™ to offer UV protection, lock in color, and reduce damage due to coloring treatments. ”

While the shampoo and conditioner are excellent and I feel like they do their job perfectly, it’s the Color Care Instant Vibrancy Booster that has made me excited about StrivectinHAIR. As a matter of fact it’s sitting in my Beauty Brands cart waiting for me to order it.

Color Care Instant Vibrancy Booster has a texture that’s between a serum and a conditioner, it’s slightly thicker than a hair serum would be while at the same time it’s thin enough to massage it into your hair easily. Wash, condition, and then vibrancy boost. The way to use the booster is to massage it onto your scalp and then work your way down. Leave it in for 2-3 minutes. It’s recommended to use this 2 to 3 times a week which works great for my personal timing. The Instant Vibrancy Booster targets signs of damage but it also helps strengthen your hair for improved conditioning and luster. When I use it I feel that my hair is shinier than ever.

The products have a luscious smell. I had to stick my nose into the bottles to figure out what it was since it’s not overwhelming. I notice a melon fragrance to them. I can smell it on my hair when I move my head and it makes me smile. Some scented products keep me up at night but these soothe me.

This set is one of 3 that StriVectin has and they also have a full line of their products. If you need extra volume try the Max Volume Starter Trio, the secret product in that collection is the Max Volume Bodifying Radiance Serum. If you feel you need to restore and revitalize damaged hair then the Ultimate Restore Starter Trio is the answer to your needs. That too has a special product, the Ultimate Restore Deep Repair Mask. Each trio is $30 or $32 while individual products cost between $10 and $45. Almost every product can be bought in the travel size too if there’s just one you want to test out. That alone is unique.

Beauty Brands carries the StriVectin Hair line along with other online retailers. StriVectin has come so far from their beginning and the direction they are going in with their hair line is making me so happy. Color Care products are just what the (hair) doctor ordered for me.  — Marcia

The year is almost over, and what better way to send it off than with a giveaway??  I first discovered the Strivectin TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream ($95) about a year ago.

Let’s face it, the first place that really shows your age is the neck and decolletage. However, most of us forget to take care of this delicate skin that is constantly exposed to the sun. If it’s not kept moisturized the skin becomes wrinkled and crepey, looking old way before it should.  The Strivectin TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream uses some pretty fancy technology called Gravitite-CF Lifting Complex™ and patented NIA-114 technology to rebuild elastin fibers, reduce sagging, and moisturize the skin. As soon as it’s applied, skin looks and feels tighter, and the results just get better over time.

Based on consumer evaluation at 12 weeks:

    • 96% felt tighter skin
    • 96% saw improved firmness
    • 89% saw significant lift

I love the results Strivectin TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream gives me and I know you are going to love it too! Enter today to win one of our last giveaways for 2015.

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: 1 winner, US only.  The giveaway ends January 11th at 11:59 p.m. EST. As always, entries have two requirements – be a subscriber and leave a comment. Good luck, I hope you are a winner!!  – Lisa

StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner makes a real difference #StriVeSTORY #iFabboMember

StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner

StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner

I have finally welcomed StriVectin to my world and in the best possible way. I’ve read about the brand for years and always was interested in it but never bit the bullet. I was sent their ADVANCED RETINOL PORE REFINER by iFabbo to test and I’m a convert. This is the first product that has made a difference on the pores on my face. I’ve seen minor differences through masks, creams, and exfoliation but never like I have with StriVectin.

The goal of Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner is to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores and refine texture for a smooth, even complexion. It has both a long term and a short term effectl. Short term they hope to help with the appearance of your pores and with the brightness of your skin. Long term is the same but with the added benefit of getting to the root of the problem and keeping your skin this way.

This isn’t a primer that will fill in pores that I’ve counted on for a long time, instead it’s a treatment to visibly reduce pores up to 50%. Large pores are caused by a lot of problems like acne, sun damage, extractions, oil production and genetics. Since my sister has nearly poreless skin what I always assumed was genetics wasn’t what caused mine. Instead it was from extremely oily skin that produced a lot of sebum when I was young. I had terrible blackouts though very little breakouts. When my mom would get frustrated with me, she’d extract the blackheads with her fingers. Obviously a no-no but back in the dark ages what did we know? At least the oily skin has kept me looking young.

StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner has a combination of ingredients with Retinol and NIA-114 being the main ones to be aware of. In the past I haven’t had a lot of success with products that have high amounts of retinol within, my skin has turned red and uncomfortable. The percentage of retinol in this StriVectin Refiner is under 1% though so my skin tolerates it well. I haven’t had any irritation at all. “Retinol improves skin’s natural cell turnover to visibly diminish the look of pore size by purifying and refining skin tone and texture. Patented NIA-114™ technology nourishes and strengthens the moisture barrier, limiting the sensitivity common to Retinol use.” When I first started using this I just used it once a day to test it out but within a week I was able to use it morning and evening.

This is the very last step in my skincare routine. Every other product is on and then I massage a small amount over my skin. It even goes on over sunscreen. It helps mattify your skin which is fine with me.

While this hasn’t been a miracle worker, it has certainly made a difference for me. My cheeks have been the beneficiary of the magic of Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner. I notice that my pores are much less visible. My foundation doesn’t gather in them and cream blushes are on my skin, not hidden in the craters pores too. My nose is still suffering with the problem of pores but they are definitely reduced. Gunk doesn’t gather in those pores but I still see them. Of course my weapon of choice is my 8X magnifying mirror and I doubt most of the people I encounter have vision quite that good.

At $99 for 1.7 oz this is an investment but one I’m willing to make. I’m testing a new skincare line with a product that promises to help with enlarged pores and once I’m done I plan to go back to this StriVectin Pore Refiner. It’s taken over a dozen years but I’ve finally found a product that I can trust and that doesn’t make me cringe when I’m looking at myself in a mirror.
