StriVectin Instant Facial Sculpting Cream
This cream is a unique product because Strivectin claims that this is not a moisturizer. It is meant to tone, firm, and sculpt the skin, and other products must be applied afterwards to hydrate. This cream claims to be the answers to all your aging woes, lifting the skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. This product says that it “improves the skin’s support structures to help tighten, lift and smooth skin for more defined facial contours.” We are interested in seeing the ingredients in this product.
Water (Aqua/Eau), Propylheptyl Caprylate, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Yeast Extract (Faex), Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Glycerin, Silica, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Isododecane, Cetyl Alcohol, C12 15 Alkyl Benzoate, PEG 100 Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Myristyl Myristate, Stearyl Alcohol, Anemarrhenae Asphodeloides Root Extract, Calcium Hydroxymethionine, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Secale Cereale (Rye) Seed Extract, Caprylyl Glycol, Acrylates/C10 30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Phenylethyl Resorcinol, Pentylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Seed Extract, Sorbitan Stearate, 3 Aminopropane Sulfonic Acid, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Disodium EDTA, Tocopherol, Triethanolamine, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Polysorbate 20, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, Propylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Sodium Methylparaben, Sodium Ethylparaben, Sodium Propylparaben.
This product contains Anemarrhenae Asphodeloides Root Extract, which stimulates fat production. This means that wherever it is applied, the area will most likely appear plumper at least, and possibly have more shape and fullness.
This product contains 8 parabens. Parabens are terrible for the skin. They have been linked to many fatal diseases, but even at their best, they cause irritation and redness, and often allergic reactions. Parabens are often found in cheap cosmetics, but this cream is not cheap. It costs about $79 for 1.79 fluid ounces.
We would not recommend this product. It is will probably damage the skin, and even if it doesn’t, it is not worth the money and will not be an effective anti-aging cream.
