One of the best ways to gauge a person’s age is by looking at their neck. While most people take good care of their facial skin, they forget all about their neck - at least until the skin begins to wrinkle and lose elasticity. As the skin loses elasticity, it can begin to resemble a turkey’s wattle. To beat “turkey neck” many consumers are turning to StriVectin Neck Cream.
StriVectin Neck Cream is specially designed to tighten and lift the skin on the neck and décolleté. With regular use, StriVectin promises to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, smooth, and shape the skin. Users will be left with a more toned and youthful appearance.
Before choosing StriVectin over other popular neck creams, it’s important for consumers to understand the advantages and disadvantages of using this product.
Let's take a moment to talk about the ingredients found in StriVectin TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream. It's important to know what you're putting on your skin, so listen up!
Caprylic/CapricTriglyceride: Oily substance that forms a moisture-holding barrier on the skin.
Glycerin: Moisturizes the skin.
PEG 100 Stearate: Cleanses the skin of dirt, oil, and dead skin cells.
Hydrolized Soy Protein: Conditions the skin.
Phenylethyl Resorcinol: Brightens and evens skin tone.
Polypeptide-1: Stimulates collagen production and tightens the skin.
Antioxidants (mygdalus dulcis seed extract and secale cereale seed extract): Neutralizes free radicals, detoxifies, and improves the health of the skin.
Have sensitive skin or have used similar products in the past that have irritated your skin? Spot test! Use a pea-sized amount of the cream on a very small portion of your neck, or even your arm, and wait to see if redness, itchiness, or other issues occur.
As a word of caution, though - always consult your physician or dermatologist before using any skincare product just to be on the safe side.
Retailing at $90, some consumers may find this product to be on the more expensive side.
Requires two applications per day for the best results. Since users are given only 1.7 ounces, this may cause the product to run out quickly.
QUICK-TAKE: StriVectin is a decent cream, but, based on our own testing as well as public opinion, a better option is Revision Nectifirm - another topical cream designed to tone, tighten, and revitalize skin around the neck and chest. We highly recommend it, and so do other women!
So, what do actual consumers think of the cream? After all, that's what really matters - does it work for normal, everyday women that want to improve the appearance of their neckline?
The short answer - yes.
The long answer - there are a lot of mixed reviews for the product.
Generally speaking, StriVectin TL for the neck has received mostly positive feedback, but there have been occasional reports from some women who claim that the cream did little to help with issues such as wrinkles or tightening their skin.
Roughly 20% of users had less-than-favorable experiences with the product. That isn't significant by any means, but it's definitely a moderately high number when it comes to a cosmetic product that costs as much as StriVectin (we discuss the price more below).
I reordered TL Advanced LIGHT which is so light and easy to apply. I received TL Advanced (not LIGHT) which is a heavier cream. Tonight when I finished my old jar of LIGHT and opened the recently received new jar, I discovered I was sent the wrong thing. If I return the item I have nothing to use. I will never order this product from Amazon again. Nordstrom had it for the identical price.
Really love this product. It great for dry sagging skin (Sara J. - Amazon Review)
While StriVectin does offer a great product, the most obvious disadvantage is the price. There are, of course, several more expensive products on the market. Also, when compared to the price of laser treatments and/or surgery, the price seems very reasonable. Yet, consumers that are accustomed to purchasing $10 to $30 creams at their local drugstore may feel that $90 is a lot to pay for a neck cream.
Overall, StriVectin Neck Cream is a decent quality product that is worth the price for most people. It offers a wide range of benefits, from smoothing and tightening the skin, to evening the skin tone.
Again, we do suggest checking out Nectifirm first. It works better, has better reviews from real women than StriVectin, and it's actually a good bit cheaper.
With StriVectin, when applied as directed, users should see a noticeable difference in the quality and appearance of their skin in only a few weeks. It appears as though StriVectin has produced another winner in their trusted line of products.
