StriVectin-TL Tightening Neck Cream review
Don’t you just hate when you take pictures and you start seeing your skin around your neck a bit loose?
The StriVectin-TL tightening neck cream definitely lived up to their promise of bringing back a more prominent jawline contour and youthful neck.
And now, I can take and pose for photos more confidently and without the fear of looking so worn out, old, and tired because of my wrinkly and slightly sagging skin.
As with other beauty products that I use or intend to use, I first do a brief research of its ingredients. The StriVectin-TL tightening neck cream actually boasts of one main ingredient—NIA-114.
I was rather doubtful at first, but I soon discovered that this was their patented ingredient, which is a form of vitamin B3 (Niacin). And for those who aren’t that familiar, Vitamin B3 or Niacinamide is a very common ingredient in a lot of skincare products because of its 3 key benefits:
- Skin moisturization:The application and presence of niacinamide in the skin can boost skin softness, suppleness, and hydration. A study done before even showed how niacinamide reduced the transepidermal water loss, while increasing fatty acids and ceramides by a significant percentage.
- Combat skin aging:We all know the various signs of skin aging—wrinkles, poor structure and less elasticity, etc.—which is mostly due to the gradual decrease of collagen and elastin fibers. Vitamin B3 is known to boost collagen secretion and trigger fibroblasts, which produces elastin fibers. That’s definitely a big plus when it comes to skincare products that are meant to counter the effects of skin aging.
- Even skin tone:Besides skin aging, other external factors such as exposure to sunlight can cause uneven skin tone. This is especially more prominent on the face and neck area and having Vitamin B3 applied to it regularly can improve these dark spots.
In addition to this key ingredient, the cream itself is easy to apply and also has a pleasant smell.
After washing my face in the morning and evening, I apply this religiously all throughout my neck area. Its thickness also helps me make the most out of just one container.
I really would have to say that I am just beyond impressed with the results of this product. I’m going out on a limb and say that this is definitely one of the best neck creams available in the market today.
I’m not saying that this is a miracle formula all on its own, but it does effectively contribute to counterbalancing the effects of skin aging on my décolletage and that’s more than enough to make my purchase of the Strivectin-TL Tightening Neck Cream so worth it.
