I am a true believer in the anti-aging benefits of using Retinol-based products, and I am always open to trying new or new-to-me products that utilize this ingredient. Therefore, as a huge fan of StriVectin, I was eager too try their Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner.
StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner is a lightweight daily lotion that was formulated to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, and to refine and smooth the texture of the skin. While the 1% Retinol efficiently improves skin's natural turnover, and provides skin with a more youthful appearance, it does not dry out the skin as do many Retinol-based products. In fact, their patented NIA-114™ technology nourishes the skin and improves the moisture barrier– both of which help to mitigate the drying effects, and sensitivity often associated with Retinol use.
While I do not have particularly enlarged pores, I have definitely noted that mine appear more refined, and my overall complexion is markedly more smooth and even after using StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner for a little over a month. My skin is smooth, hydrated, lifted, and my fine lines have been visibly softened because this formula effectively exfoliates dead skin cells and improves the overall texture of the skin.
Many people experience excessive peeling until their skin acclimates to Retinol-based products, but this formula is more gentle, and gets the job done without causing you to molt like a snake! The only obvious peeling that I experienced was a small dry patch of skin that I had prior to testing StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner, and it was completely eliminated after less than a week of use.
Directions: Apply all over clean face in the AM and PM. Use as the last step in your skincare routine. Apply after sunscreen for an optimal mattifying effect.
Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner is a lightweight daily pore-minimizing lotion and anti aging cream with Retinol that mattifies shine and delivers both instant and long-term visible pore reduction.
This potent pore-minimizing lotion helps refine the appearance of enlarged pores while purifying, tightening and reducing the appearance of pores. As it hydrates and smoothes skin texture, it absorbs excess oil to control shine throughout the day for a fresher, mattified and youthful looking appearance.
Retinol improves skin’s natural cell turnover to visibly diminish the look of pore size by purifying and refining skin tone and texture. Patented NIA-114™ technology nourishes and strengthens the moisture barrier, limiting the sensitivity common to Retinol use.
