I have used many products from Bio Oil to Palmers. They gave me beautiful and moisturised skin but had no effect on my stretch marks. So I started to search for a miracle product that could help.
I was very fat in my teenage years and then finally started to shed the weight by eating soup for lunch with brown bread, sushi, fruit for desserts, herbal tea after meals, oven food, moderate amount of Jaffa Cakes, multivitamins to make sure I was getting enough of the good stuff and going three times a week to the gym (just in case you guys were wondering how I did it).
With this accomplishment I have gained far too many stretch marks. They are around my armpits, my hips and lower back. They are like white veins and look odd on my complexion.
After reading about the miracle cream ' Klein Becker's StriVectin-SD' about a thousand times in different articles and magazine, I decided to take a plunge and buy this expensive cream.
This benefits in three ways firstly for your stretch marks, secondly by accident they discovered it was one of the best anti-wrinkle creams on the market and lastly it is hydrating (Shea butter).
The accident of discovering that it was a great ant-wrikling product was minor but by word of mouth this cream has become a modern classic for people who are looking for a good anti-wrinkling cream. It has a following of many men and women, especially celebrities like Elton John and Kylie Minogue.
Gina Gay, a spokesperson for Klein-Becker, said that this was 'pure luck' and they were 'dumb struck', when they found out it was a remarkable anti-wrinkling cream.
StriVectin-SD's formula was sampled out to employees and customers as part of a market research, the sample tubes were simply marked 'topical cream' with the lot number underneath, the samples were passed to friends and family, the message became a little muddled and some people used this 'topical cream' as a facial moisturiser. When the feedback came back from the users, 93% reported looking 'younger' and crow's feet diminished. Soon after StriVectin was being bought for both reasons not just for one.
StriVectin-SD has wrinkle-reducing properties of a patented 'Oligo-Peptide' called 'Pal-KTTKS'. The product also contains Vitamin C.
Studies showed that when the cream was applied twice a day for two months showed amazing improvement in the appearance of skin tone and wrinkles. Also applying the cream three times a day on the area to be treated for stretch marks had improved by the stretch marks flattening, the colour becoming fainter and the area looking smoother.
The results confirmed that the pateneted ingredient was effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and stretch marks. As a result you ended up with a smoother, younger complexion, with less irritation and cheaper than other treatments.
The treatment has firming agents and hydrators, which optimise skin tone and texture, by having glycosaminoglycan, peptides & collagen.
I followed the instructions; I applied it 3 times a day (sparingly) in the area I wanted treated for the next 4-6 weeks. It was creamy in texture and has a very fresh but slightly minty smell to it. At one point it felt and smelt like toothpaste but when I used the product and it had absorbed into the skin it gave a warm and hydrated feeling to the skin.
I applied some over my forehead lines to, to see if it was good for both.
My stretch marks are still there but definitely do not look so visible anymore and the colour of them have become subtle. Skin feels hydrated and looks good.
It has done wonders for my forehead lines (in conjunction with using my serum) and they are hardly visible. The only thing is that it is a bit oily for the skin and would suit dry skins, but nothing to worry about I used my pressed powder to get rid of the shine.
Available to buy for £135 (177.4ml) in most department stores but you can pick them up for a bargain online especially on www.strawberrynet.com, which is where I bought mine for half the price.
