I can’t believe it’s Fall! Yay! I hope the weather becomes cooler soon. I am all about the Fall fashions and makeup shades — but I really need to take care of my skin during this time of year.
I have been sent the following samples for my honest review. The products below can moisturize, calm and really soothe skin during the colder weather:
StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner ($99 1.7 oz) — New Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner is a lightweight daily pore-minimizing lotion and anti aging moisturizer with Retinol that delivers both instant and long-term visible pore reduction. 96% of subjects had an immediate improvement in visible pore size after a single application. Patented NIA-114™ technology nourishes the moisture barrier to provide visible age fighting efficacy as it limits the sensitivity common to Retinol use. The powerfully effective blend purifies and refines both skin tone and texture, while delivering superior age fighting benefits.
StriVectin Advanced Retinol Intensive Night Moisturizer ($112 1.7 oz) — New Advanced Retinol Intensive Night Moisturizer delivers the proven anti-aging benefits of Retinol faster and stronger than ever before – without the irritating side effects. This anti-aging night cream supports the four essential building blocks of healthy skin appearance: proteins, micronutrients, water and lipids. Retinol helps improve cell turnover, visibly enhancing firmness and elasticity and diminishing the look of lines and wrinkles. Patented NIA-114™ technology nourishes the moisture barrier to provide visible age fighting efficacy and limit Retinol sensitivity. The supercharged face cream with Retinol and Copper Tripeptides is the ultimate solution for more radiant, revitalized and younger looking skin.
What I think: I have found that my fun aging issue right now is enlarged pores. And if something irritates my skin, my pores get larger. That’s why I am excited that these products exist! They do not irritate my skin, which is essential! I layer the night cream over the pore refiner at night and my skin is glowing and smooth in the morning!

What I think: I have tried the balancing mist, so I was excited to receive this sample! It is both refreshing and moisturizing. It has a light rose scent that I love! The creams are new to me, but I will use the rose moisturizing cream when I need extra moisture (at night), and the calendula cream when my skin is red and sensitive. I love that they are all natural.
