StriVectin Repair and Protect Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 30

StriVectin Repair and Protect Moisturizer is my new favorite way to combat lines and wrinkles, protect my skin from the sun and drench my face with healthy antioxidants.

 The formula has a whipped consistency so a little dab goes a long way. Lightly scented, this cream melts into the skin quickly and evenly.

Since it contains SPF 30 I use this moisturizer primarily in the morning to give my skin all-day protection from the sun. Once I awake and do a little meditation, I apply my eye cream and StriVectin moisturizer. Next, I grab my morning coffee, and write my to-do list for the day and fifteen minutes later I easily apply my foundation.  What’s so great is in this short amount of time my skin is perfectly ready for my makeup as it gets hydrated quickly, looks dewy but never greasy.

On weekends when I am not headed to work, I love the fact I can put on my moisturizer, before walking my dog Becky or running errands, and I already have my SPF 30 broad spectrum protection on my face. As an added bonus to my delicate skin, which is prone to break-out easily, I haven’t experienced additional breakouts.

All in all this product is a nice find that will be a mainstay in my beauty chest.

My new beauty routine with Clarins

I have a new beauty routine with Clarins and I couldn’t be happier with the positive results to my skin.

Right now my skin is in that in-between stage; I need to protect it from the harsh winter weather but don’t want to over moisturize and cause breakouts.

So when I was invited a few weeks back to a Clarins event at Bloomingdale’s I was eager to find out about the latest product innovations from one of my favorite French beauty lines.

Here I was introduced to a new Clarins beauty regime which uses Double Serum, followed by Multi-Active Day Cream, then finishing with Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate.

The Double Serum is a fueled with 20 pure plant extracts.  Just a small pump covers the entire face and I learned the Serum is key to helping other beauty products like face and eye cream work more effectively. The Serum contains healthy ingredients like Musk Rose Oil, Organic Green Banana, Kiwi and Lemon Thyme and sinks quickly into pores.

Because I am always in such a rush in the morning, in the time it takes me to take a few sips of my coffee, I can apply the Multi-Active Day Cream soon after the Serum and follow with the Super Restorative New Total Eye Concentrate. In fact the Eye Concentrate really requires just a pea-size squeeze to adequately cover both eyes which I learned after squeezing a large pump of product in the beginning.

I also learned a very important step before applying any of these beauty cream and that is to ‘heat’ up the product with your fingers before applying as this makes the product more effective on your skin. After a few weeks of using this new routine, I have to say my skin looks noticeable better so much so my Fiancé noticed and asked what I was doing different with my skin. Better yet my skin looks better at work and I work long days so even around the end of the day my skin looks fresh and hydrated.

So I have to give an enthusiastic numbs up to my new Clarins beauty routine which is taking me “beautifully’ from winter to spring.
