StriVectin Blue Rescue Clay Renewal Mask is still one of my favourites and on rotation since I started using it last month. I am so glad to share more new launches from the brand which are definitely not just for winter but for the whole year round – one of the key ingredient, which I am obsessed with in general, is Hyaluronic Acid. The new launches include
Hyaluronic Tripeptide Gel-Cream for Eyes, Tri-Phase Daily Glow Toner, and Hyaluronic Gel Cushion Cleanser.

Hyaluronic Acid helps reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles retaining moisture to the skin, creating a plumping effect. When the skin is protected and hydrated, increased skin cell production can take place, as the skin isn’t busy fighting for hydration. This leads to smoother, plumper skin cells. That means apart for providing all the above benefits, it is also good for healing burns, dry skin, and more.

StriVectin Hyaluronic Gel Cushion Cleanser is a silky, lightweight cleansing gel that removes makeup and impurities while replenishing skin with essential hydration. This refreshing, cooling formula leaves skin super soft, supple and visibly plumped with a cushion of moisture.  I prefer to use it as my second cleanse during the evening and first cleanse in the morning. It feels very luxurious on the skin. My skin feels very soft and smooth after using it. There is a subtle glow on the skin, skin feels nourished, comfortable and fresh, ready for the next step in the skincare routine. It is safe to be used even on the eye area.

This swirled, dual-phase eye gel-cream intensely hydrates and corrects visible signs of ageing while neutralizing the visible effects of Blue Light. The texture of the cream is just so lush, the swirled fluffy light texture is very hydrating, gives a cooling effect, and after few days of regular use, I have noticed my eye area is brighter, supple, and fine lines which have started to peek are less visible. Once I apply the eye cream, it absorbs quickly and the after-feel of the eye area is so silky to touch, without any residue. This is definitely a keeper in my skincare routine.

It was not just because it was gentle enough to be used by all skin types, but the products were effective, especially the first one – Lait-Creme Concentrate which can be found in every makeup artist’s bag and also loved by celebrities.
