The great humorist and writer Nora Ephron, RIP, wrote a book called I Feel Bad About My Neck about a decade ago. She always wore turtlenecks. At the time, I was mystified about that. Now I know a bit more about what she means.
I thought my neck was in pretty good shape – I’ve been using moisturizer or neck cream for years – till I looked at some of the selfie pix I’ve been taking for product reviews or FOTDs on the blog. My face looks OK, but my neck definitely looks older. In person, it doesn’t look nearly as bad (at least I don’t think it does), but in those photos, whoa!
Needless to say, I was thrilled when StriVectin TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream showed up on my doorstep a few weeks ago.
StriVectin TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream is a thick white cream. You can see its heft even in the jar.
I had been using another brand’s neck cream that was light and fluffy. For me, thick is the way to go. The StriVectin Neck Cream has made an almost instant improvement in the look of my neck. I just looked up some of the product details, and the StriVectin neck cream is formulated to give an instant improvement by hydrating and tightening the skin as well as giving a more lifted appearance over time. Yay!
In addition, the StriVectin Neck Cream with Gravitite Lifting Complex contains their patented ingredient NIA114, a niacin-derived complex that works well for me. I apply the cream to my neck and jawline in upward strokes twice a day. Not only is my neck better hydrated than it was before, but the cream does seem to act almost like spackle, lol. I’ve only been using StriVectin Neck Cream for about 3 weeks so I’m very eager to see what long term use will do to help my neck and jawline. Their consumer research reports some pretty amazing results after 12 weeks of use:
- 96% felt tighter skin
- 96% saw improved firmness
- 89% saw significant lift.
But I didn’t want to wait 12 weeks to let you know my thoughts. I am definitely seeing what they call “instant” results. Just for the heck of it, I looked at the reviews on their website and Amazon, and I see I’m not alone. Many of those who wrote in used the product for many years because they were so satisfied with the results. Yes!
StriVectin TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream comes in two sizes, 1.7 oz. for $95, and the value Super-Size, 3.4 oz. for $139. StriVectin is widely available on the StriVectin website, at Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, Nordstrom, QVC and other fine retailers.
