Strivectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner Review for Brown Women

strivectin advanced retinol pore refiner

안녕 Bumblebees!

Thanks to iFabbo I got to try out the Strivectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner. This little puppy claims to give you pores half their size! I have normal to dry skin so after reading about this daily pore reducing moisturizer-- and seeing as though I had just ran out of my drugstore moisturizer-- I decided to give it a try!

About Strivectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner

From the company's website:
Reduce the appearance of enlarged pores and refine texture for a smooth, even complexion.
New Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner is a lightweight daily pore-minimizing lotion and anti aging moisturizer with Retinol that delivers both instant and long-term visible pore reduction. 96% of subjects had an immediate improvement in visible pore size after a single application.** Patented NIA-114™ technology nourishes the moisture barrier to provide visible age fighting efficacy as it limits the sensitivity common to Retinol use. The powerfully effective blend purifies and refines both skin tone and texture, while delivering superior age fighting benefits. 

Directions for Use

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.

Stivectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner Packaging

What I really like about the Pore Refiner is that the tube is opaque so the ingredients, especially the retinol, won't degrade from light exposure. The pump is perfect because it allows you to control how much product you dispense (a full pump is too much in my opinion.)

My Review on the Strivectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner

I like to apply this at night by itself or during the day as the last step in my skincare routine. This is a great product if you want a mattifier. (Sometimes my boyfriend asked if I was wearing makeup when I wasn't.) It helps blur out your pores but I didn't see any significant shrinking of my pores. 

I have sensitive skin so I appreciate the fact that this didn't cause me to break out.

Over all I recommend this product for it's mattifying effects but I'm not convinced on the pore refining aspect of the product. I give it 4 stars also because it's kinda pricey at $99.
