About a year and a half ago the Makeup Wars Bloggers featured our favorite face masks. For this go-around I wanted to share more than a favorite mask. Recently StriVectinLABS released some awesome new products that are perfect for a little at-home spa day. Using these three products - the 5-Minute Weekly Glycolic Peel, the Anti-Wrinkle Hydra Gel Treatment System and the Extreme Cream - I'm excited to share with you how I've been pampering my face right at home!
(One) I begin with the StriVectinLABS 5-Minute Weekly Glycolic Peel($89.00). This is a two step skin resurfacing treatment that exfoliates with the highest level of lycolic acid and other AHA acids available for home use. This system reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and diminishes the look of pores. I love this peel because it's easy to use and doesn't take forever. You put on step one, which primes the face, then after one minute apply step two over-top and allow that to sit for 3-5 minutes. I feel a slight burning sensation on my cheeks (which is always the driest area of my face) but it's not burning like you have to remove it right away. Call me crazy but I like to be able to feel things working. After the time is up wipe it off and you're all finished with the peel!
(Two) Next I pull out the StriVectinLABS Anti-Wrinkle Hydra Gel Treatment System ($69.00) and get at my eyes. I'm so paranoid about lines by the eyes so I like to use those patches underneath. The two-step pair of products utilize hyaluronic acid to deliver moisture to skin, instantly plumping and smoothing signs of aging in just 15 minutes while patented NIA114 technology seals in the actives and helps reduce all types of expression lines. These are great because they're not just for the eye area, but are also for any area that you're concerned about (wrinkle wise) such as between the brows or even those smile lines by the mouth. Once you remove the patch(es) you apply step 2, which is a Anti-Wrinkle Smoothing Balm. You get a total of 8 patches and one tube of smoothing balm per box.
(Three) I finish up by applying the StriVectinLABS Extreme Cream($89.00) all over my face and neck. This feels amazing and stimulates deep hydration. Energizing Oxygen Complex renews the skin to activate cell renewal and stimulate collagen formation, diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. I love that this cream sinks in quickly but I can tell it's definitely hydrating because I wake up and my skin feels fresh and supple like I just applied my cream. It's important to me that a cream doesn't take long to absorb because I usually put it on right before I fall into bed. Who wants half their product on their pillow? You can be sure all of this is sinking right into your face.
