One of the more effective products I’d tried from Strivectin quite many years ago was the Strivectin-SD eye cream. It worked quite well for the fine lines around my eyes but as is wont to happen with me and eye creams, it fell by the wayside. I think I almost finished the tube but I never repurchased because I got slack and went without eye cream for ages. Oops!
Well, there’s a new eye serum now out at the counter from Strivectin, which is the Strivectin-TL 360° Eye Serum that claims to tighten and visibly lift the sagging skin around the eye area, so eyes look younger.
I looked up some info on this, and it appears that this eye serum is targetted at those of 40 years and up, and those who have loss of firmness round the eye area, or droopy lids. Hmm… I’m not 40… yet! And I don’t think I’m experiencing droopy lids just yet so I’m not sure how effective this will be for me to try. But I’ll give it a go and see how it feels, if anything, and report back. For now, here’s a quick rundown on the product if you’d like to know more about it.
The Strivectin-TL 360° Eye Serum comes in a tube, with a metal tip that when applied to skin, helps cool and massage the eyelid area. This isn’t new in eye creams. We’ve seen them around for a while, and I’d tried a similar cooling tip eye serum from Dior once before. It was nice to press the cool metal against your skin and it might be the cooling effect but it does seem to help reduce puffiness around the eyes. Think of it as an in built teaspoon – you know that old trick for reducing eye puffiness right?
Aren’t the customised macarons adorable? I was told they were from Crumbs
Anyway, back to the eye serum LOL!
The 360° in the product name implies that this eye serum works to lift droopy sagging skin around the eyelid all around, so you have firmer, smoother and more lifted eyes therefore looking younger. Yes, apparently, our eyes do tell our age as well. At the rate we’re going, we’re going to need a serum for every part of us
On the box, as apparent in all Strivectin products, it documents what you should observe with regular use of the product. So, the immediate effect is to tighten skin so it feels firmer and smoother. After 4 weeks, it should minimize undereye puffiness and after 8 weeks, eyelids should look more lifted and eyes look more youthful. Helpful perhaps, so you don’t look tired and sleepy all the time.
So there you have it. A brand new eye serum in the market which is now coming up with more and more eye serums. I’d never really heard of “eye serums” until recently and now with this and the Estee Lauder ANR Eye Serum in the market, it looks to be an interesting time. I haven’t tried either yet.
Have you tried an eye serum before this? Do you have a problem with droopy eyelids?
Some people may be genetically more prone to having droopy lids so I suppose its not as if you have to wait till you hit 40 before you get this, although it is more likely that someone in their 40s may notice more improvement compared to someone with already lovely bright, firm peepers. I don’t have droopy lids myself although puffy undereyes is a problem. I will give it a go for texture but I will not promise before/after photos because from experience, its hard to measure the efficacy when you don’t have the original problem to start. I may also rope in Mom to test it if she’s keen but we’ll see
