Strivectin-HS is the ultra-strength wrinkle serum offered by Klein Becker, who also manufacture the popular wrinkle cream Strivectin-SD. The official website lets us know that the “HS” in the product name is short of “hydro-serum.” Unlike the Strivectin-SD cream, which comes in a 6 oz. tube, the Strivectin-HS serum comes in a small bottle that only contains 0.9 oz. of product. Still, this little bottle sells for the eye-popping sum of $153, which is actually more than the larger tube of original Strivectin cream.
The manufacturers of Strivectin-HS do use a big piece of the official product website to attempt to inform the consumer of the cause and treatment of wrinkles. Most wrinkles, they state, can be traced to the Dermal-Epidermal Junction, which is a layer of the skin. This seems to contradict much of what we’ve read from many other sources, which attributes wrinkle formation to a slowing of collagen production within the body. Strivectin-HS is jus tone of several Klein Becker products under the Strivectin brand, and others include a neck cream, a hand cream and an eye cream.
There are very details instructions on how to apply Strivectin-HS. Unfortunately, this process seems to take a great deal longer than many rival wrinkle treatments. First, users are instructed to gently massage the serum into their face, started at areas with the deepest wrinkles. Rather than just washing up after or leave the serum to absorb, users than wait 3-5 minutes while the Strivectin-HS dries on their face. The effect will be similar to a very light mask product. Finally, use a warm, damp towel to soak the serum off of your face. Fortunately, this somewhat confusing regimen is detailed on the official website, and the product itself likely also comes with these instructions. Somewhat confusingly, consumers are informed that this product can be effective on wrinkles anywhere on the body, but the amount supplied for $153 is only enough for “approximately 28 days”, and then only if the product is used exclusively on the face.
- Strivectin-HS has a clearly posted number for any customer service questions.
- Strivectin-HS goes to some effort to give possible customers a basic education on some wrinkle science.
- We did not see a full ingredient list anywhere for Strivectin-HS.
- $153 for less than an ounce makes this one of the most expensive anti-aging products that we’ve seen.
- Compared to rival products, Strivectin-HS is very tedious and involved to use.
- There is no free sample of Strivectin-HS available from the official website.
The Bottom Line
If Strivectin-HS expect people to pay $153 for .9 oz. of this product, they must think that they have something special. Unfortunately, they really don’t do much to back up any of their claims. Before spending that kind of money, we’d love to be able to try out a free sample of Strivectin-HS, or at least to read a full ingredient list of what’s in this serum.
