StriVectin Instant Facial Sculpting Cream Review
Strivectin Instant Facial Sculpting Cream is a firming, lifting, and sculpting cream that is solely designed to function as an ant-aging treatment for the skin. Strivectin does not put any moisturizing or hydrating ingredients in the cream. The cream is supposed to reduce all the signs of aging, not just sagging skin, but also lines and wrinkles. If this cream delivers all that is claims, then it would surely be worth the $70 for 1.7 fluid ounce price. If it doesn’t, however, it is not even an effective moisturizer and would be useless. We need to look at the ingredients and see what it delivers.

What do these ingredients mean?
This is a long list of ingredients and as usual, only one of them will actually do anything. Anemarrhenae Asphodeloides Root Extract has often been used to stimulate fat production. Generally used as a breast enhancing cream, this might have some application in toning and sculpting the skin in the face. The terrifying part of this product is that it contains 8 parabens. Parabens are terrible for the skin. They irritate, damage, and redden the skin, and could even cause fatal conditions. Parabens are usually found in cheap cosmetics.
We would not recommend this product. It is potentially damaging to your skin and ineffective as an anti-aging cream.
