As I mentioned previously, you’ll be seeing a few reviews and my thoughts on different StriVectin products I’ve been using over the last few months. The StriVectin Intensive Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles has been a product I have had in my possession for about 4 months now, maybe longer. And, after using it this long – I’m finally able to share my thoughts with you on this particular product.
The StriVectin Intensive Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles (30mL / 1 fl.oz.) retails for $69.00. The claim of the brand is that you will see visible results in just one week and will notice the reduction of fine lines, crows feet, dark circles and puffiness. I have been using this product over the last four months (or more) in combination with some of my favorite skin care products and have included it in my skincare regimen. Let me start by saying that I’ve been so happy with how long this tube of product has lasted me. Since I concentrate the product on the outer corner of my eyes (crows feet area) and on and around the orbital bone area, I have noticed that a little of the product goes a long way and my tube has lasted me a long time. Used in the morning and evening as part of my skin care routine, I gently pat the product using my ring finger around the eye area.
The cream is light weight and cream-like in texture. When applied I noticed instantly that the area around my eye seemed much more hydrated and bright. While I don’t really have much wrinkles, I do have fine lines and I notice that they are not as prominent as they had been. I don’t suffer from under-eye circles or puffiness, so I didn’t notice much of a difference there, but I do notice that my eye area looks much more bright then before and my eyes look awake.

I use a lot of different skin care products in combination with those that I test out and those that I purchase and love. I have been enjoying this product because I love how awake and how moisturized my eye area looks and feels. Since I have naturally dry skin, many times an eye cream doesn’t provide the hydration I need from it, but I did notice that this definitely provided great moisture to my eye area. It doesn’t provide immediate tightening of the skin near my eyes so I don’t use it specifically for that reason… but do use it to hydrate the eye area since it works so well in doing so. Not only does it provide intense hydration for my eyes, but it doesn’t leave my eye area greasy which is a huge plus. Using makeup after applying this product is not a challenge as others have been for me in the past.
THE SCIENCE (as stated from StriVectin)
This lightweight moisturizing formula is proven to visibly reduce the look of all types of lines around the eyes, including crow’s feet, squint lines and deep-set wrinkles – starting in just one week. Next generation ocular skin technology powerfully addresses the appearance of under-eye dark circles and puffiness to illuminate and awaken. Patented NIA-114™ technology helps strengthen delicate eye area skin and diminish dehydration.
Optical diffusers reflect light to immediately brighten dark shadows and help alleviate visible signs of screen fatigue.
“After using the cream for about 3 months, I have noticed my crows feet are not as prominent and my eyes look more hydrated and supple.” – Honey
- Visibly reduces the look of all types of lines in the eye area
- Alleviates the appearance of under-eye circles and puffiness
- Brightens and diminishes visible signs of screen fatigue
This eye concentrate is a bit on the pricey side, but I think it really is a good price considered how long it has lasted me with daily use. Of course, with anything I use – it may be a different situation with anyone else, so I may be using a lot less than someone else and therefore it may only last 30 days for someone who uses more. Overall – it’s a product I do enjoy and have been using daily for the last several months. Whether or not I’ll continue to purchase it like the StriVectin Multi-Action Restorative Cream, I’m not sure, but so far I’ve enjoyed this product and like what it has done for my eyes.
What about you? Is this something you would be interested in trying and if so, what would you like this product to help reduce on your end?
