Striking Skin Care Review & Giveaway

As I entered my thirties, I started to think more about skin care. Unfortunately, my teen years were spent in the sun (and tanning beds - grrr...) Let's just say, I've earned a few wrinkles.

I was so excited to try the Striking Skincare set. I don't always like the products I review, but I can honestly tell you that I loved this product. I tried the Striking Skin Care System which includes:
  • Striking Multi-Vitamin Cleanser, 8 oz bottle
  • Striking Multi-Peptide Serum, 1.13 oz bottle
  • Striking Rejuvenating Eye Creme, 0.5 oz jar
  • Striking Restorative Moisture Creme, 1 oz jar
I used each product in the evening, every day, for a few weeks. At first, my skin tingled in an almost painful way. Since I have experience with different facial treatments, I took this as a sign that it was working. After 2 or 3 days, my face no longer tingled, but I felt like my skin looked remarkably more radiant.

Yes, it's summer, but I guarantee this was not a "sun glow". I wear a minimum 45 SPF on my face every day and am one of the few people that reapply (read: excess teenage sun exposure creates thirty something sunscreen maniac.)

My skin really looks and feels better. I had never used a facial product that contained peptides prior to trying the Striking system, and I like the results. To be fair, I still have every wrinkle I started with. And they are as deep as they were before, but my skin is more radiant, is free of dry patches, and just feels better.

When you try the Striking products, the first thing that you'll notice is how well they smooth into your skin. I loved the Multi-vitamin cleanser. While I'm sure most of the vitamins actually go down the drain, the cleaner was creamy and smooth. It didn't sting my eyes and I didn't dread washing my face at night (I'm lazy like that.)

My absolute favorite was the Multi-Peptide serum and I can't say enough about the eye creme and moisture creme. That's why I selected the Striking Daily Defense Product Duo for this giveaway. It contains the Multi-Peptide serum and eye creme (see below.)

The only downside - no SPF. The directions say to use the products in the day and evening. I never used them during the day because they didn't provide UVA/UVB protection. But I loved them in the evening and I think you will too.


Helix Biomedix is offering one Suburban Jungle reader the chance to win the Striking Daily Defense Product Duo Set. A $100 value.

I have been living in Zambia as a volunteer for several years now, in fits and starts. And each time I go I notice the effects of the harsh sun and elements . . . some new skin care products would be wonderful!

I love to try new products, and with my budget being tight this would be a blessing.

Just wanted to let you know that I have been using Purity 12products for a few months now, and I have NEVER had this kind of reaction from other people before. I work in retail and my customers will tell me how perfect and flawless my skin looks almost every week! I’m like floating from too much flattering. My co-worker told me the other day I look 30 . . . I'm 43. My boss apologized for staring at my skin — he said it is so flawless! Haha! You can go to their website, I think it’s http://if1s.com?131
