New cult hit: StriVectin Overnight Facial Resurfacing Serum

Why is it that beauty waiting lists always seem to emerge from the UK? The latest buzz is for StriVectin’s new Overnight Facial Resurfacing Serum, which according to the Telegraph has waiting lists across the country.

I’m not sure what the situation is here in Canada—it’s been out for a few months now—but now that it’s officially entered cult product status, I’d recommend getting your hot little hands on a bottle stat!

The deal with this product is that it’s like “sleep in a bottle”—you use it under your regular night cream every night and it removes dull skin, diminishes pores and wrinkles, brightens your skin tone and improves luminosity. Not bad huh? AND it’s suitable for all skin types and won’t irritate.

Jennifer Lopez, Kelly Osbourne and Kylie Minogue are all rumoured to be fans. And for what it’s worth, my mom is also raving about this. I let her give my sample a test drive and she says her skin has never felt so smooth. Now I think I’ll need to get that sample back!

$68 each, at select Sephora, Shoppers Drug Mart, The Bay, Holt Renfrew and Sears stores across Canada.

do you think this would be good for pigmentation?

I think it helps but is more of an all-over treatment for brightening. If your pigmentation issues are more severe, I’d go for a product made specifically for that. The one I’m loving right now is called Lumixyl and is available from dermatologists. I’ll probably be doing a specific post in it in a few weeks’ time, after I meet with their rep to get more info. In the meantime you can look at

Is this a product you would recommend for someone in her early twenties? I’m looking for something to help clear pores and remove dull skin overnight just like this product but don’t want to use something that’s unnecessarily too harsh for my skin…

Thank you :)

I think this is a product suitable for any age – the whole point of it is that it exfoliates without being harsh. You could also try a mild glycolic acid toner (NeoStrata or Dermaglow make good ones) and gradually build up to applying it a few times a week.
