In fact, most serums are light and watery, principally because most have water, or some other thin liquid as the first ingredient, but with this serum StriVectin sought an entirely different formulation. The first two ingredients, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride and Glycerin, give this serum a thick gel-like texture, and water does not appear until further down the list. The end result is an ultra thick, rich and highly concentrated light pink gel with a very emollient texture.
Its unusual, and very luxurious, texture requires a very specific mode of application: pump a very small amount into your palm, rub your hands together to warm and emulsify the serum, and then it will melt into the skin as you gently press and massage it into your face. While I do note that it melts into the skin, it also leaves behind a bit of a barrier, like occlusives do, that seems to seal in moisture. In this way, one might liken its texture to that of a thicker silicone-based primer or cream, but make no mistake about it, this is all serum.
What I have noticed is that this cocktail of ingredients deeply hydrates the skin, causes the skin to effectively retain moisture, and leaves it soft, smooth and supple. Furthermore, it softens the appearance of fine lines, presumably by plumping the skin, and makes the skin more luminous.
According to StriVectin,
StriVectin’s proprietary BioRecode Technology revitalizes skin’s own wrinkle defenses to reduce the look of lines, creases - and even deep, stubborn wrinkles - in just 7 days*. This super concentrated formula melts luxuriously into skin to visibly plump, smooth and restore youthful radiance.
Most of the skincare products in your bathroom cabinet are the result of great chemistry. But Wrinkle Recode was inspired by the revolutionary science of epigenetics, which is the study of how lifestyle and the environment can affect how we age and presents an entirely new and efficacious way to target the root cause of wrinkles.

Directions: Thicker than a typical serum, this melting serum requires a slightly different application method. Pump 1 pearl sized drop. Warm in hands, then gently press into skin, all over a clean face AM and PM. This method helps the serum emulsify and melt to spreads and absorb easily.
