Look Fab Without the Jab: StriVectin-WF Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler Review

I tried this product at home and was so impressed I had to share (‘cuz I’m just awesome like that) so I took it to work. I got together a few co-workers ranging in age from 40 to over 60 (a total of six of us) and let me tell you, everyone saw results. StriVectin-WF Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler is packaged in a tube and is a gel formulation—just rub a little in your deep wrinkle problem areas on a clean bare face. In my experiment, a few of us did have makeup on, but it didn't seem to negatively affect the results, however I would definitely suggest putting it on under makeup instead of on top. It does feel sticky and your skin will feel tight in those areas for a bit, but it works!! It erased deep creases between the brows as well as the nasolabial folds (the lines we all get between the nose and mouth). It handled our crow’s feet nicely and it does actually plump up your skin! We did notice that it didn't work as well on the deep “bands” in the neck area, but I believe the manufacturer, KleinBecker has another product for the that.

There is good news/bad news with this product. The bad news is your mileage may vary (and that’s not really all that bad). It didn't last very long on my skin; I put it on at 9:45 and by 12:00 I was back to my normal wrinkled self. However, one of my co-workers reported back that her “11’s” (the wrinkles between her eyes) were still missing by dinnertime! According to the directions, you can apply as often as needed throughout the day. The good news is that if you have a special event this would be perfect! Imagine being the flawless Mother of the Bride, a smooth talking (and looking) speaker at a function, the youngest looking one at the Christmas Ball, or just when you want to be a Hot Mama on a dinner date with your man. A .78 fl. oz. tube is $59.

Bottom Line: Works like a magic eraser for your wrinkles; great for that special occasion you want to look mahhhvelous for! Do remember though that YMMV (your mileage may vary), but definitely worth a try.
