StriVectin-SD

I’ve been using this morning and night and the serum on the odd occassion for roughly six weeks now. My skin has been so bad and this is the only new product that I’ve added in great amounts so I’m going to have to say that it’s just not for me for now. I’ve waited out to see if it was just an irregular hormonal bout but it’s gone on for too long. I’ll find out when I’ve stopped if things clear up. I was curious if anyone has actually used this on stretchmarks with any success?

    That`s a good point that someone using it after using maybe mediocre products would get a much better result!

    I agree with you gals. I decided to finish the smaller tube using it on my stretch marks, although they`re not really that prominent and stand out only in certain lighting. It is too expensive to use for that purpose. I have a larger tube that I bought. It was a while ago though when Myer had it going for $50 off and silly me took it out of the box!!! I doubt they would take it back – sob! One thing I do like though is the eye cream. It`s not any more fabulous than other eye creams I`ve used though! I did buy the strivectin for my hubby to use in the first place – he`s a bit older than I am – he`s a nivea man though, has been since his mum introduced him to it at 14.

    Linda I agree with glamourcat and if the product is causing you grief send it back and ask for a refund. Most products (all products should!) come with a money back guarantee. I think the product was initially made for stretch marks but it was discovered that it produced amazing results of the face (or it could be the other way round?). The quantity is quite small to be slathering on your body for stretchmarks. If it doesn`t sell we`ll soon see it in the department stores with huge markdowns.

    Oh BTW, I`d just like to add that I was using the Strivection for it`s anti-wrinkle claims not for stretch marks…

    Linda, I would return the Strivectin products to where you purchased them from if it has caused you nothing but grief. It may well work for stretch marks, but I think it is very expensive for a stretch mark cream. If this product was so great it wouldn`t be so expensive – being expensive keeps it out of reach for most people and if it was so great they would reduce the price so more people would use it – sell more units you make more profit anyway…

    I used Body Shop body butter and baby oil gel (which sadly doesn`t seem to exist any more), I slathered this combo on my tummy, breasts and thighs religiously and didn`t end up with stretch marks there… but I didn`t think to rub it into my lower back, and as a result I have stretch marks there! oh well, can`t have it all… Palmers coco butter now is so nice, but back when I was pregnant I bought it for the first time and I didn`t like it, it was hard and didn`t rub in very well, so I`m not sure if they have changed it or if I just got a dud batch…

    I did the same as you BO, I used Palmers coco butter with my first baby every day with great success, except I got lazy in the last 3 weeks, thinking I don`t have stretch marks so obviously I wont be getting them, and in those last 3 weeks I developed a few small ones on my hips and just around my belly button! But they faded sooo quickly. With my second I was REALLY lazy and got quite big so I ended up with a few stretchies, not badly though and they are hardly noticeable now (I am even thinking about braving a bikini this year) I do think using a moisturiser on a preggy belly helps, but I also think people are more susceptible to stretch marks than others, depending on their skin type of course.

    that`s true what works for one may not necessarily work for another. it`s great you got to try a sample of it though. fortunately I don`t have stretch marks but when I was pregnant I just slathered myself with palmers coco butter and rosehip oil and they both worked great in terms of making my skin tone look more even and glowing.

    I ran into a friend a few weeks ago and she looked refreshed, whereas she had been looking a bit like she had let herself go combined with lack of sleep. I told her she looked great and she told me she had been using Strivectin-SD. So I had to go get a sample to see if it was great or not. I`ve been using for a couple of weeks and I don`t think it is great at all… I think sometimes these things work for people who haven`t really been using anything, or haven`t been using quality products and they hear about the latest `buzz` item so they get it. Of course they are gonna look better, cos it`s better than the stuff they were or weren`t using… that`s my 2 cents worth! lol 🙂
