Striking Skin Care | Women Over 40 | Review

Share

Recently I had the opportunity to review products from Striking Skin Care.  It’s  a product line for women over 40 that helps restore radiance and firmness to skin by using SmartPeptide technology.

Skin Care for Women Over 40

I’ve always maintained a  beauty regime for my face since I was a teenager.  I’m fortunate to say that I’ve really never had acne, and have inherited good genes.  My grandmom lived to be 101, and hardly had any wrinkles, and really looked at least 20 years younger than she was!

Over the years I’ve had many compliments about my skin.

Starting in my teens, I always removed my makeup at night and used an astringent-based facial cleanser.  As I got older, I made sure I always applied moisturizer.  In the evening I would also use a night cream and under-eye cream.

SmartPeptides target areas that need improvement in the appearance of aging skin such as age-related skin characteristics: lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity, loss of firmness and definition, appearance of darkened areas or general unevenness of skin tone, rough texture, and thinning of the skin.

I started out by using the facial cleanser, Striking Multi-Vitamin Creme Cleanser.  First you rub into a dry face, and rinse off.  Afterwards I applied Rejuvenating Eye Crème and Restorative Moisture Crème.  During the day I’ll apply my mineral makeup over it.  At night, I just apply as instructed.

Since I’ve been using the product for approximately one month, I’ve noticed that my skin has a firmer appearance, and the area underneath my eyes doesn’t seem as baggy.  The product is a rich consistency, yet isn’t greasy feeling.

The Striking Skin Care line can also help target the effects that peri-menopause and menopause have on women’s skin.   Approximately 45 million women are going through the menopausal transition in the US at any one time.  With an average life expectancy for US women today of 84 years, many women spend around 50% of their adult life as a menopausal or post-menopausal female.   During this phase, a woman can experience increased dryness, loss of firmness and an increase in fine lines and wrinkles on her face and neck.

Striking Skin Care products are free of parabens, fragrance, artificial colors,
pore-clogging ingredients and formaldehyde-releasing ingredients and are Dermatologist tested.

As a Baby Boomer, I can honestly say that I like how my skin looks and feels after using the Striking Skin Care line and will continue to use their products.

  37. I’m 82 years old. I guess this probably wouldn’t do too nuch for me, but it’s worth a try, right? I’m NOT all leathery and wrinkled, but there are a few wrinkles here and there. Maybe this might help me.

  38. 1. I subscribe to your email.

    2. I learned “SmartPeptides have been designed to help with the skin concerns related to the loss the estrogen caused from menopause and the onset of menopause. Estrogen is key in the normal functioning of our skin. When estrogen is lost, it affects fibroblast formation and keratinocyte production both of which help with skin support and skin renewal.”

    One additional Striking product I would also like to try is the Striking Multi-Peptide Serum.

    thanks! itsjustbrig(at)gmail(dot)com

  39. I have subscribed to your email updates (wandapanda at live dot com).

    According to the website, three different peptides comprise the “SmartPeptides” of the Striking Skin Care formula. It’s absolutely amazing to me that science now can specifically target aging areas of the skin to promote biological processes similar to those of younger persons. And with topical applications, not injections or surgery!

    I would love to try the Multi-Peptide Serum. I’m one of the Advance Guard Boomers, and my skin could use a lot of plumping up just now!

    Thank you for a fabulous giveaway. Someone is going to be very lucky and very happy.
