When I come into contact with such promises as “Softer, smoother, instantly younger looking skin!” I usually accessorize my raised eyebrows (I have the forehead furrows to prove it) with a disapproving do-I-really-look-that-gullible? head tilt.
That said, StriVectin’s Instant Moisture Repair actually lives up to some pretty bold claims. This peptide-rich, ultra-hydrating formula penetrates below the surface to plump the skin’s natural cushion whilst binding water on the skin’s surface. The formula is lightweight— I found it worked great as a base, but my thirsty dermis required another moisturizer on top of this one— and although Strivectin claims this cream will "help skin look, feel and act younger," mercifully that didn’t mean an acne encore or extended misanthropic, Pink Floyd soundtracked, bong-pulling bedroom shut-in sessions however, listening closely, I think I heard my face begging for an bigger allowance. The cheek!
