If there is one thing I absolutely cannot live without it’s eye cream. I sleep late every night and wake up before 6am during weekdays so I have really dark undereye circles that are quite hard to conceal even with make-up.
I spotted a good deal at Costco during my trip to the US last summer. Two 19ml tubes of Strivectin-SD Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles were being sold for US$60. I’ve read about Strivectin in magazines and even encountered the product at the GNC event several months ago. It’s expensive though, as a 30ml tube in Rustan’s Makati is priced at P3,290. Buying at Costco meant I was getting a total of 38ml for around P2,640.
I use my pinky finger to pat Strivectin-SD all around my eye area — on the lids, under the eyes, at the corners… I’ve been pretty successful with the battle against crow’s feet and sagging lids and I’m not about to stop fighting them off now. 😛
This photo was taken July 21, 2011. I’ve been using Strivectin every morning before going out and every night before sleeping from May 7 to July 21 (about 2 months or 8 weeks). I only stopped for 10 days when I underwent the Obagi Blue Peel (from June 24, 2011 to July 3, 2011). I noticed that my upper eye area became less puffy and my undereye area lightened. My dark circle became shorter too.
Here’s even more good news — one 19ml tube is far from being empty even after using 2x a day for 2 months. Strivectin is quite economical if you think about it. If we base it on the Philippine SRP (Suggested Retail Price) of P3,290 and the 30ml tube lasts for 6 months, you’re spending P18 a day (or P9 per application since you put it on 2x a day) to keep your eye area free of lines, wrinkles, puffiness, etc. I can live with P18 a day. I mean, we tend to spend more than that on coffee!
I’ll be testing GoodSkin Labs’ Filextra on my undereye area starting tonight but for the corners and the upper lids I’ll be sticking to Strivectin for now.
Strivectin-SD Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles is available in Rustans Department Stores and GNC outlets.
