My Experience

Because I have sensitive skin, I generally avoid beauty products with Retinol as they are known for causing irritation. I do like it when skincare science catches up with my real-world concerns and I’m happy to wait until a product is made safer for my skin. With that understanding, I used the Strivectin sparingly. I also decided to apply it only on my oily area where my pores are more likely to be enlarged. Also, my oily area is, of course, the most in need of all-day mattifying. I avoided my cheeks because I didn’t want to risk excessive drying and flaking.

I was surprised to notice an immediate improvement in the look of my skin after applying. The pores around my nose did appear diminished and this continued throughout my use of the product. I guess the claim that 96% of people had immediate improvement in pore size after a single application is true. When I read that statistic, I thought ‘no way.’ But apparently, Strivectin delivers on its promise.

Even though this is an extra step in my skincare routine, I like that Strivectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner does double duty. Skincare products that work cosmetically are especially appealing to me because I believe that looking your best starts with having great skin. The mattifying properties helped cut down on the amount of primer I needed to use and the pore minimization is fantastic.

I do recommend going slowly with this and all products containing Retinol until you know how your skin will handle it. My sensitive skin has been fine thus far but I will certainly update this post as necessary.

    I’ve used Strivectin before for stretch marks – I didn’t notice a huge difference, but the quality of the product was great!

      Hey Chloe! I didn’t know they had a stretch mark cream. Did you ever try Maderma?
