As someone over the age of 40, I am always interested in any skincare product that will makes me not look so much my age. I know its not possible with surgery to look like I’m in my 30’s, I also understand that there are a few skincare products out there that will at least help you look less 40, even if its just for the day.
Striking Skincare came to me about doing a review for their products a while back. I just got a bit back logged in my reviews and haven’t had time to get to theirs till now. Hey at least I’m honest right?
I was send to review their Four-Step Skin Care System
Striking Multi-Vitamin Cleanser
Striking Multi-Peptide Serum
Striking Rejuvenating Eye Creme
Striking Restorative Moisture Creme
This is from my email from Kelly the young lady who asked me if I would be interested in doing a review for Striking Skincare. I thought it would be interesting for you to read about as well. Its one of the reasons why I was interested in doing a review.
“We are the manufacturers of Striking Skin Care, a product line for women over 40, that helps restore radiance and firmness to skin with the use of SmartPeptide technology.
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.
Our skin care line can also help target the effects that peri-menopause and menopause have on women’s skin. 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.”
With that all said its my turn to say what I feel works or doesn’t work with their products.
The cleanser cleans very well and doesn’t dry out my skin like a lot seem to do these days, only issue I got with it is I can’t use it to remove my eye makeup. I like having a cleanser that will do both. That just saves time. The cleanser isn’t meant for removing eye makeup so I had to use a second product for that. (my issue, nothing wrong with the product)
I really feel this product line needs a toner, one that gets the skin ready,to bring your skin back into PH balance. Because I feel a toner that balance skin protects moisture levels, blocks oxidation, and gets your skin primed for your serum. (Again just something I been using, and I guess not all skincare systems need toners)
Ok who’s bright idea is that it only takes a pea-size of serum to be applied all over your face and neck? Sorry so not happening!! Anyway the serum was one of the few that I have tried that after applying it, while its doing its firming thing, my face didn’t get all tight feeling. I have had serums that have done that, it means it was working I just didn’t care for it. At least this serum didn’t do that. Nothing worse that having your face feel like you can’t talk cause your skin is too tight.
The eye creme is awesome!! Feels great and really soften the lines around my eyes. You get a lot too!!
The moisturizer again I ran into a issue, it doesn’t have sunscreen so I had to apply it over the moisturizer. So how do I know if the moisturizer was doing its thing if I had to add yet another cream? I wear sunscreen as a habit I got into living in Las Vegas years ago. I like having a moisturizer that sunscreen as well as moisturizes.
Overall its a good skincare system, we all need Piptides applied to your skin as we get older.

I was giving Striking Skincare System for reviewing, and I was not paid to do this review. So yup they be my words and really my own personal opinion.
