At first I had bought this for my wife's stretch marks as I had read good reviews about it. Since it's also an anti-wrinkle cream, and it worked so well to fade her stretch marks, I decided to also try it for the fine lines on my face. I'm starting to get lines on my forehead and around my eyes. StriVectin-SD Intensive Concentrate may fade stretch marks, but it didn't do anything to help the lines on my face. I used it for several months and it didn't seem to do anything to my face, it didn't even firm my skin. Absorption This is a very quick absorbing formula. Doesn't Clog Pores This is a nice light cream that isn't greasy or oily, so it's great for the skin and doesn't clog your pores. Effectiveness This is a great product for stretch marks. It slowly fades them, and you start noticing the difference in about two weeks. It doesn't seem to help wrinkles in the same way, however. I used this for several months without any improvement in any of the lines on my face. So, I would only recommend this for use on stretch marks.
