Strivectin Retinol Night Oil - Ms Tantrum Blog

The ULTIMATE retinol oil for all skin types

If you have been following my social media for a while, you might have seen this oil on my Instagram stories quite a lot recently. I also featured it recently on my blog as an impressive Vitamin A aka Retinol product.

When we talk about Retinol, some people think it as Heavy Duty Industrial Strength skincare ingredient. I agree it can be little scary to use with possible side-effects like peeling of skin and high sensitivity at first but the long – term benefits make it worth trying. However, with advanced technology and better choice of ingredients, companies are continuously researching to get better formulations and one such amazing formulation is from StriVectin. The brand has nailed their Retinol formulation in the form of an oil which actually helps to reduce skin sensitivity as well and is perfect to use on sensitive skin. Oh well, I must make repetitive orders to make sure I never run out of this star product!

Transform the look of your skin with StriVectin S.T.A.R. Light Retinol Night Oil, a nourishing, non-greasy formula that delivers all the benefits of Retinol without the irritation.

Targeting fine lines, wrinkles, uneven texture and tone, the advanced anti-ageing treatment utilises three separate but synergistic Retinol technologies, including naturally-derived Biomimetic Retinol which mimics skin’s natural processes to better receive the benefits of Retinol. Absorbing quickly without greasy residue, the Retinol formula delivers skin-smoothing properties to reveal a youthful-looking complexion. Astaxanthin and Pro-anthocyanins (two of the most powerful antioxidants) soothe and protect dry skin, while plant-derived Squalane and Chia Seed Oils moisturise and replenish to leave skin feeling soft and supple. To help eliminate sensitivities, the formula also contains nourishing Squalane Oil and patented NIA-114 technology.

This oil contains both bakuchiol and retinol in addition to a long list of potent antioxidants, extracts, and plant oils. The result is a powerhouse of a skin-care product that tackles fine lines and uneven texture as it moisturizes and protects, all in an easily-absorbed, non-greasy formula.

How to apply

Use 1-3 drops after cleansing. The oil can be used alone or mixed with moisturiser. I like to apply alone as it is weightless and sinks into the skin right away without sticky feel.

Overall thoughts

Weightless texture of this oil makes it suitable for all skin types which is impressive. I have dry and sensitive skin which can get irritated easily. After using this oil for over 3 weeks continuously, I can safely say it can be used on sensitive skin. I have seen improvement in my skin – not easy to describe but definitely the texture of my skin is better. I did not notice any redness throughout these weeks which indicates the oil has helped with skin sensitivity. Makeup sits better on my skin not but I have been preferring makeup-free days mostly and my skin has been glowing from within. I didn’t wear any makeup for whole week and I was out on most days. My skin looked healthy and radiant which says it all. The oil is worth investing and you will see me continue using it in my PM routine.

If you want benefits of anti-ageing with Retinol (regardless of your skin type) without experiencing the side-effects, s.t.a.r. light retinol night oil is for you!

With much love, Ashh xo

    Honestly, I had no idea about this brand and whatever I have heard about retinol oil has kept me away from it. But it’s great to know that StriVectin has come up with a formula which doesn’t irritates the skin. I am definitely going to recommend it to my friends. Thanks for writing about it.

    Effortlessly Sophisticated

  3. I was a huge fan of StriVectin for years but after I started beauty blogging, I kind of forgotten the brand. They make some amazing products for sure.

    1. That’s so good to know Shireen. This is the first product I tried from the brand but not sure why I had not seen this brand on social media a lot or didn’t notice on retailing sites either. May be it was not easily available in the UK earlier but I am very pleased they sell in the UK. I have been really enjoying this oil and can see improvement in my skin already.
