StriVectin Instant Moisture Repair


RATING (out of 5 stars): 1 star

COST: $59 for 2 ounces

THE SKINNY: If you are like me, you will try just about anything to combat winter dryness and redness. When I saw this super-moisturizing product it was very excited.

That excitement did not last long. StriVectin Instant Moisture Repair is not a product that lives up to the hype.

The first thing I noticed was the smell. It was not gross, but came pretty close. The scent was sterile but did not smell fresh or clean. The lotion glided on well but afterward my face felt slick. I peeked in the mirror and it looked slick too.

And the next morning I woke up with a huge zit. Coincidence? Maybe. But this is an experiment I will not try again.

StriVectin Instant Moisture Repair did get rid of the dry patches, but the benefit does not outweigh the costs.

KEEP OR TOSS: Toss. If I had two samples, I would not even open the second one. And this product is expensive as well.
