Stivectin’s Facial Sculpting Cream, Really all the Hype?Mon, 9 Jul 2012
PRODUCT REVIEW | SKINCARE
By Huda Heidi Kattan
Yes, I am a beauty lover, but since I became a makeup artist, I look at EVERYTHING differently! Especially once you’ve worked in the industry, you start to notice CRAZY things like jaw sagging, facial disproportion, lines, pigmentation, hallows–yup enough things to make you go insane! OF COURSE, I try not to get too obsessed since I truly do believe that a little flaw here and there adds super character and exoticness! HOWEVER, sagging skin is NOT the flaw I am looking for! This is one of those flaws that happen as you age, not something you were born with and those flaws I try to keep to a minimal! So when I first saw the Strivectin Facial Sculpting Cream, I jumped for joy!
Ok, sooooo after using this product for only 3 days I NOTICED:
My skin instantly DID become more firm, hydrated and my jaw and cheek bones were more defined (as promised on the label). I did notice my skin looked slightly more radiant and it just felt better. Now what I also noticed that scared the bejesus out of me was huge cystic acne forming as well as small pimples popping up! I know my skin is pretty sensitive, but I’ve learned that using salicylic acid with new products keeps breakouts to a minimum since I am ALWAYS trying new products, but it really didn’t help! This product is actually really amazing but the fact that I broke out so bad was really SUUUUCH a shame!
Who should use this:
I think this is one of those products that actually IS for women who are older I would say in their 40′s onwards, unless you have skin that is really immune to breakouts and needs serious hydrating, I wouldn’t use this. I did love the sculpting, but it’s so rich, I don’t think it’s for women under the age of 35.
