StriVectin-EV Giveaway! (CLOSED)

**UPDATE: the winners of the five prizes are…. [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] and [email protected] If your email starts with any of those names, then check your inbox and spam! Well done winners – commiserations to everyone else. Don’t cry, I’ll organise another giveaway soon!**

I wrote about StriVectin’s new “EV” range a few weeks ago – you can read that post here. I couldn’t actually review it fully because I don’t suffer from hyperpigmentation or “dark spots”.

But guess what?

I have five sets of StriVectin-EV to give away to my readers! I would absolutely love it if the winners could give me their feedback on the products, but obviously I can’t adequately monitor who enters, so from one gal to another: please don’t enter if you have a perfectly even skin tone! This product won’t really do much for you if you have, so it would be better going to someone who has dark spots that they want to shift!

There’s a new rule for comps and giveaways; they are open to all A Model Recommends: Exclusive members. This is totally free to join – you just need to give your email address and click through on the sign-up email that gets sent to you! If you want more info on Exclusive then you can find it here.

So: the rules.

1) Make sure you’re joined to AMR: Exclusive

2) Make sure you leave a comment below (it can say anything you like!) and put your email address in the right space in the form where prompted. No email? No win!

3) Enter before next Friday, 4th May 2012.

    Hi Ruth, I’d love to try this product! I’m 30yrs old and don’t have dark spots from sun exposure but i do have a lot of acne scars; as in, the red ones you get from cystic acne. i use liquid gold and other AHAs to fade them but they takes ages to fade (basically, vichy dermablend in Nude is my best friend) x

  21. April 27, 2012 / 8:00 am

    I have loads of dark spots so would be really keen to test this for you! Love reading your posts, they brighten up my morning, so keep up the good work!

    I would love to try this, I have pigmentation on my forehead from (i think) either sunbed abuse years ago when i was nieve and a little silly, contraceptive or having 3 lots of babies (i think they sometimes call it a pregnancy mask ???) its not as bad in the winter but as soon as we get a little sunshine its hello large dark dirty looking patch on my head, (thank goodness for full coverage makeup)…so if you’d like to consider me i would be thrilled. many Thanks xxx

    Hi Ruth! I would love to enter this giveaway ,as my once even skin is now plagued with hyperpigmentation across my forehead. I have tried lots of products which claim to brighten and whiten to no avail. I would be more than happy to take some before and after shots and document any results!

    Hi, I would dearly love to give this a try. I’ve had pigmentation patches since my pregnancy (14 years ago!) which just won’t fade. I have spent so much money on products that have little or no difference. I am scrupulous about sunscreen, but that’s still not enough. It gets me down when people tell me I have a smear of chocolate or gravy on my face :-( and I have to tell them I’m not a messy eater, just unlucky! Hairdressers get in a panic when they rinse off dye because they think they’ve accidently got dye on my skin… oh dear.

  33. April 27, 2012 / 8:27 am

    I would really like to try this eye cream. I am guilty of not using one currently so you can imagine the dark circles :| and plus I work nights shifts which is detrimental to the eye area. I can give you feedback after using and let you know how it goes. Thanks x

  34. Gyudy
    April 27, 2012 / 8:29 am

    I wonder if it would be ok on post-blemish marks… Oh well, I’ll see it if I win! ;-)

    • Ruth
      April 28, 2012 / 10:42 am

      @Gyudy yes, or you could use an AHA like Liquid Gold to help fade! xx

  35. Kiki
    April 27, 2012 / 8:36 am

    Hey Ruth,

    I have always wanted to try the StriVectin brand! This would be perfect for he hyperpigmentation I have on my cheeks.

    Thanks for doing this giveaway! I would love to win to try out the range as I have lots of freckles – which I love but wouldn’t mind having a bit less ;)

  37. April 27, 2012 / 8:37 am

    Hi! I’d love to win one of those as dark spots and hyperpigmentation are my main concern right now! I’ve tried loads of products, but none of them have lightened them completely to the point that I don’t need a concealer, so I’d love to give this one a shot!

  38. Jo
    April 27, 2012 / 8:42 am

    I’m an AMRE member and would love to enter the giveaway – I have pigementation and old scars that could do with some help :)

  47. Kathrin Elsner
    April 27, 2012 / 9:13 am

    Hi Ruth! About two years ago, I got dark spots on my forehead and over my upper lip (which looks as if I had a dirty mouth). My doctor said it was caused by the hormones in my brith control. And it gets worse when exposed to sunlight. I tried a lot to get rid of it, but nothing helped so far. Maybe Strivectin-EV does! :))

  48. April 27, 2012 / 9:15 am

    Oh Ruth, this little experiment has my name written all over it! The hyperpgmentation has now become a HOBBY for me, as I recently wrote in my little blog!

    My mom was a sun worshipper who had the kind of skin which thrived in this insanity – ur, “devotion” – but I’m completely fair who had many episodes of sun poisoning!!!

    So, yes, I AM on a “we have to get rid of these plate-sized freckles” crusade, followed only by “and these pores need to be gotten rid of.” This is, after all, the year of me devoting myself to “smartening myself up”!

    I have some pigmentation marks left from acne. This would be really good to try… In fact- my mum would be a good guinea pig too! If I’m lucky enough to get one, I’ll share with my mum and review from both perspectives (youngish and mature skin!)

    I would love to try the StriVectine, I have a lot of dark spots, if I was given a penny for each spot then I would be a very wealthy woman! My hyper pigmentation is getting worse by the minute due to a pain medication that I can’t live without, so if there is any chance for me to try out the StriVectin I would be so HAPPY!

    Love your blog btw ;)

  53. Hara Iliopoulou
    April 27, 2012 / 9:29 am

    An opportunity for me to express my admiration for you, Ruth. I would also like a bottle of that miraculous potion :)

    Hellooo all the way from Norway! Have to say, love your blog!!! I would be so happy if i won this brightening serum! I have some dark spots and some scares from acne, and my skin therapist have helped me a bit, but its not gone! Im gonna give it a good review after I´m done with it!! **Fingers crossed**

  57. April 27, 2012 / 9:36 am

    ooh how exciting! I’ve seen Stri-Vectin around but never tried any products.

    *fingers crossed*

  58. Serena

    Hi Ruth,

    Would love to win this as I have some pigmentation on my cheeks and chin which I would love to remove. Especially as I’m getting married soon and have tried everything!

  59. Rona
    April 27, 2012 / 9:46 am

    I love the Strivectin SD and I would love to try the Strivectin EV but as a student I can’t afford to so this would be a great opportunity to give it a go! Fingers crossed x

    April 27, 2012 / 9:59 am

    Hi Ruth,

    I have relatively good skin, but have developed some dark spots over recent years that I’d prefer were not there. I wear spf 15 consistently and have never got sun burned, but it seems I’ll need to use a higher factor to avoid the appearance of any further pigmentation.

    I’ll be submitting my PhD thesis in 11 days and so my skin is suffering generally at the moment; it’d be great to try a new skin product after I finish and if it could help resolve this pigmentation that’d be amazing!


  62. Alex Terry
    April 27, 2012 / 10:02 am

    I have been dying to try this product as hyper-pigmentation has been a problem for me in the past couple of years…. any spots that pop up tend to leave their mark for months afterward. I would love to find a product that left my skin clear and even!

  63. Tracy

    Hey Ruth. I really enjoy your videos, I have learned a lot about skincare through you. I definitly suffer from hyperpigmentation since I was probably twenty and I found nothing that really gets rid of them completely. Soooo annoying but hopefully now I will. I have never tried strivectin before so I would like to let you know how it goes with me if I win ofcourse.

  66. Astrid
    April 27, 2012 / 10:12 am

    Would love to try Strivectin-EV. I have had pretty even skin for years, but as aging definitely changed that. My beautician says dark spots are not to be fixed. I would love to prove her wrong.

    Hi Ruth! I suffer from some dark spots that are caused by my few acne spots that I used to have. They won’t go away easily, and I hope that this product will help! Also, is this giveaway internationally? I’m from Holland, so I thought I’d ask first! :) Thank you so much for holding this giveaway! xxxxx <3

    First things first. I’ve joined AMR Exclusive.
    I’ve been searching and searching and searching for things that can help me get rid of spots, hyperpigmentation whatever you call them. I’ve even gone to use anti-scarring creams, you know those for surgical scars and stuff? But they don’t seem to work too well on me…. Would love to give this a try =)

  89. Nuraan
    April 27, 2012 / 12:25 pm

    Okay, so first off – I have tons of hyper-pigmentation on my face (in the form of freckles, nothing severe like someone with Addison’s Disease would have)… tons and tons and tons and tons… second – I would like to know from whomever does try this product how well it works. I recently purchased the “beaute brightening serum” from cle de peau at a rather hefty price. This would be so much nicer to my wallet. Thanks and good luck everyone!

    I really trust your recommendations for skin care,I used to have quite good skin but in the last maybe year I suffer from hyper pigmentation on every blemish I get plus one stubborn spot on the side of my eye and it’s frustrating because I also use every morning SPF 50+. I was thinking of trying laser treatment but with this opportunity I can try this instead!
    Thank you!

  104. April 27, 2012 / 2:30 pm

    Hi there! I would be so delighted to win this product. I have a problem with hyper pigmentation because of my dark complexion and I have tried so many different products to help minimize the unevenness of my skin. If I were to win I would definitely send you a review and an update (complete with before and after pictures). I really really want a chance to try this product out! Thank you bunches!!

    Hi Ruth! I’ve only just started reading your blog and I’m ashamed to say have become completely obsessed. It is taking up a much larger portion of revision time each day than is appropriate, but oh well! If I fail my exams, hopefully I will have learned how to have clear model skin. . .

  112. April 27, 2012 / 3:28 pm

    I really enjoy your posts and videos. Even the rambly ones and the ones starring Mr. Bear. ;)

    The sun/age spots on my face have slowly been getting worse I think. Then again I AM 40 and I was awful about using sunscreen in my younger years. The last several years I’ve been much better about skincare especially about applying sunscreen. I hope this has helped to slow down the appearances of new spots but I know I need extra help trying to fade existing ones. I’ve tried some products from creams to serums but nothing impresses yet… even if I don’t win this give away I hope someone who can test it fairly does and shares her thoughts. :)

  127. April 27, 2012 / 5:13 pm

    I would love this! I’m a model too based in New York. Ever since I started modeling my face began to break out. You know how that is! I foolishly started picking at my break outs.. And it left spots! Now my skin is clear as can be, but the spots are still there! Sometimes feel self conscious if the make up artist uses sheer make up or on a test shoot which I normally don’t do my make up for ! I’ve been trying out tons of products and spending tons of money trying to fix this! Would love to try this!

  128. Alana

  130. April 27, 2012 / 5:20 pm

    Hi! I’m a model too currently based in NYC. When I first started modeling (a little under a yea ago) I began breaking out from all the make up and hands touching my face. Foolishly I picked at my break outs and they left awful dark spots.. Now that my face is clear and finally under control the only thing I have to deal with is getting rid of these dark spots. I would love to give this product a go, and believe me I am in and out of Sephora looking for new products to improve my face! Xo

    I’d love to get to try this product. After reading your review on the eye cream from strivectin it really made me interested in this brand. I’ve had acne for years, but it never left any mark on my face. Unfortunately, lately the spots i get leave a mark on my face that can last for months, and it really brings my confidence down because even though there are some days that i don’t really have any big spot (not many of those unfortunately), the marks on my face are really visible. This looks just like what i need right now!

    Thanks for the product information it really helps to have to review as some of these products are so expensive trial and error isn’t an option when they cost so much.

    I’d love to review the Strivectin EV I have been battling uneven skintone all my life as a black women the unevenness is stark as I am quite ” light” by most people’s estimation. The only time it’s ever even is after the annual holiday ( if I’m lucky enough to have one). Can I review this product ? Go on!! :)

  174. Laura

    I would love to see if this works on the pigmentation i have on my forehead, its not so bad in the winter but as soon as the sun comes out its hello mr dark dingy dirty patches on my head. Now I am not sure what its from because i have been told many possible reasons 1) sun-bed abuse when i was young/nieve and not so bothered about aging (wow that creeps up on you eh..40 now and aging is ALL i think about lol) 2) side effect of contraceptives (Mmmm odd that the next follows because either it didn’t work or i missed a few days 3) pregnancy mask…after 3 adorable girls i would be happy to accept this reason. Anyway…….if you would like to pick me that would be awesome. Thanks x

    First of all – thanks for your videos, they made my Sat morning really enjoyable in an unashamedly girly way (for an almost 30 workaholic, that’s something!).

    As for the giveaway – for about a year now adult acne all of a sudden started attacking my previously smooth face, leaving dark marks that don’t fade literally for months (!). So I could really use something that will help them fade away..

    If you have any other suggestions, I’ll be happy to hear them (just got the Omorovicza mask you recommend – a splash of cash, but I’m desperate to help my skin recover).

    PS. Sorry for the loong comment!

    Hi Ruth,

    I am hoping to be a winner of this competition, and try this amazing cream. I have quite bad pigmentation marks on my cheeks and nose area. I have very very fair skin (fairer than yours), and unfortunately I didn’t have very sun savvy parents when I was younger. So they would take us on holiday and not tell us that we needed to slather ourselves in sunscreen to avoid skin damage (I was too young and naive to know, so you kinda rely on someone telling you at that age). So when I was about 13 years old (I am now aged 29) me and my friend lay on a beach for the day and being so very fair I really damaged my skin – particularly on my face – and have these funny browny/red patches on my cheeks (one side worse than the other). I do use special night serums to try and rectify the damage but they only help to a certain extent, so I would love to try this one and see what happens to the pigmentation marks. I am quite self-conscious of them, and don’t feel comfortable without make-up – it would be nice to see if I can make them disappear.
    Thank You for the fab cometitions!! Loving your blog muchly!
    Amy xx

    Ruth, what would be the next route after no creams helping and going to see a dermatologist? I had 100’s of freckles removed (burned? whatever, don’t remember which method was used after all these years, from early ’90’s?) but those freckles were breeding and multiplying! I swear that for me, at least, just a light sweat makes more freckles, sunblock or not, shade or not. Had about 3 or 4 sessions with dermatologist and was very happy with results but stopped b/c I realized that I was sending his kids to college due to my vanity and that really, I needed to send my own kids to uni.

    What is the best procedure in a dermatologist’s office (and do plastics do any procedures for this?) to get rid of freckles-turned-to-agespots? Plastics would be great if they do whatever procedure(s) since I really do need to get to my appointment with my plastics guy eventually and my “Claw,” which is healing quite nicely, BTW – well, for 30 inches on almost prime real estate on my self. I AM open to even hideous ideas if they work! Xx

      @Upa I’m not up to speed on laser procedures and the like, but I expect that they are far quicker and more effective than using a cream.. I don’t know anyone who’s undergone this, though… I’m at Harley St on Tuesday for a press day so I’ll see if I can glean any info! x

    Hi Ruth, thank you for doing this giveway!

    I would very much like to try the SrtiVectin-EV out because I have suffered with acne for around six years now, while I have been able to get my skin under control these past few years, I have been left with some scarring and dark spots. This has been bothering me for a while, as the pigmentation is all that is left from my battle.

    Thank you again for running this giveaway! Keep up the awesome videos and posts! <3

I hope that whoever enter and wins this competition needs the product, as I have a friend who suffer from it and she is very selfconscious about it, I think this type of problem is like acne, something that can actually bring you down! So in the same way, if you ever do a giveaway of something absolutely perfect for me, I hope it will be mine!! ha!! xx

    I have tried all sorts of skin care products to get rid of my annoying freckles and nothing has touched them. I have even tried laser which did work but it made my skin dry so I stopped before seeing the full effect.

    I would love to try this cream and give honest feedback :)

  235. April 29, 2012 / 4:11 pm

    Hi Ruth! First I just want to say thanks for all your advice and wit that you share with us on a daily basis. I’ve already learnt so much just from reading your blog. I would love to be a winner of this comp, I am 20 yrs with very fair skin but patches of bad pigmentation around my chin and cheeks. It started up due to a few medical issues some years ago. I just can’t afford any creams or treatments for it. I would also be more than willing to do a before and after test, with photos etc if that would be something you wanted.
    Which ever way thanks again for such a great blog,

I suffer badly with acne on my face so would love to see if this could handle the scars left behind. I’m also bedbound in hospital for the forseeable future and would love a perk up. I’m sure the nurses would love the experiment. Thanks so much for this giveaway!

    April 29, 2012 / 7:38 pm

    I got 3 sachet samples of this serum last week when I bought the Strivectin eye cream that you like so much… now I love both products. The samples lasted me one full week using morning and night and I have to say that I saw some overall brightening of the skin and some slight fading of the pigmentation on my forehead (post acne dark marks). I’ve been debating buying it but it’s too much of an investment in less than two weeks so I’d love to win!

    April 30, 2012 / 6:49 am

    Hi Ruth, I’ve only recently discovered your website, but thanks for all the useful and interesting advice so far! I’d love to try this product. For the last few years I have had horrible darkening on my upper lip (which I think is melasma) as well as a few other dark spots on my face, probably not helped by the fact that I am a reformed sun junkie (living in Aus). I’ve tried numerous products with varying results, but nothing that has helped a great deal just yet. I’d be very interested as to whether anyone finds Strivectin-EV useful.

  257. April 30, 2012 / 7:57 am

    My sister is getting married in September. I have told her to ALWAYS apply sunscreen diligently, no matter what the weather is like–but she won’t listen. As a result, she has a lot of freckling and sun spots on her face–including a large sun spot near her eye. Honestly, I would LOVE to win this for her so that she can have the flawless, glowing skin she deserves. :D

  258. Megan
    April 30, 2012 / 9:47 am

    I was very naughty as a teenager and used sunbeds 4-5 a week (I know, I know…). Sadly, the inevitable dark spots have now started appearing. This would be great for helping to erase the signs of my past sins!

    Subscribed to AMR Exclusive! I love your breakfast e-mails it always feels good to get some quality reviews for products and be-it-a-bit nosy but find out about what your upto.I wonder whether you could possibly do a video specially catering for indian skinned beauties? ;)

    I’d love to try Strivectin-SD for pigmentation. I’d say i qualified because being of Indian heritage i suffer terribly from pigmentation, being a student (as much as i may fantasise about finding this large pot of money to do it ) i don’t have the budget to buy expensive products :(

    It would be a real treat and hopefully would go some way to alleviate my self-consciousness about my uneven skintone which sees me permanently wearing some form of make-up to conceal it. To be honest with you being 19 i’d love to be able to just wear tinted moisturiser and a blusher and be able to get on with the day but i just haven’t got the confidence to walk out the door with my pigmentation.

    Many thanks,

  266. April 30, 2012 / 6:47 pm

    This looks like a really great product to try. After years of bad acne I have quite a lot of hyper-pigmentation on my cheeks. It’s hard to find products that work (within a budget :p ). Lovely giveaway! Thank you. :)

    Hi Ruth,
    I’d love to give this a go as I’m a pretty aged old bird of 47 who’s had a great life but it’s showing up on my face now! Don’t mind a few wrinkles, but I’d love the dark spots to diminish (or journey to darkest Peru and never return) and for some more even-toned skin to peek through. Here’s hoping!

    Hi Ruth from an avid follower. Firstly, I must say how refreshing it is to read the views of a model and insider of the beauty/fashion world who is SO down to earth, modest and intelligant. You (like most of us) seem to have a real life outside of all this but understand and connect with our quest to look good and thus feel good!

    I would love to trial this product and would be happy to review it! I suffer from discolouring around my eyes, chin and nose, and also have quite a lot of acne scaring *sad face* so an honest review will be given!

    Very best wishes and all good things for the future Ruth!

    Hi Ruth ,
    This is a great competition,

    I have discolouration on my forehead which is the most awkward place as its so visible. I got my self into a bad habit when I was a teenager to pick my spots there and much to my regret it’s badly marked. :-(. Anyhoo it’s never too late to fix…I hope.

    Look forward to commenting more to you xxx

    I have hyperpigmentation and am currently trialing Caudalie’s Vinoperfect Complexion Correcting Radiance Serum. I am quite happy with it but as I am already a huge fan of Strivectin’s Eye Concentrate (one of my holy grails), perhaps this product might work just as effectively on my dark spots!

    I have had bad ance for 5 years now. I have had the laser treatment done and tryed lots of serums for my skin. I have alot of dark patches around my chin area and forehead from the spots. I would like to try this as it is quite on the pricey side for me to buy. I have spent far too much on skin care products without sucess.

    Hello Ruth.
    Thanks for tons of amazing inspiration for buying new products!!! UGH!
    I get hyper-pigmentation on my upper lip when I’m out in the sun. Not even sunbathing!! And even if I use spf 100 or higher every day… I’ve tried several brands (Alpha H, La Roche Posay, Caudalie etc with products for the development of melanin with little or no result.
    I’m hoping this will be my savior. Also I get dark and long lasting marks after even the tiniest spots.
    Thank you for this opportunity!

    Hey Ruth, I have seen your Manhattan make up ad here in Berlin a few weeks ago and took it home and now sits in my make up area for continued inspiration;-) even off youtube! You are a true guru and your knowledge is amazing. I cannot thank you enough for all the money I saved on useless products, because so many of them just don’t work. Now I only buy products you have positively renewed. One question, I am very interested in the BB creams and would love to hear your thoughts and best products you found out there. Thanks so much and keep going xxx

    Ive been lurking around here for a while. Anyways, decided to make an account so I can ask a few questions about makeup/skincare later on.

    I bought the strivectin eyecream based on your reccomendation. It’s coming in mail in 2 weeks (I live in Australia), so I’m very excited about that!
