Skin Care Review: StriVectin-SD Eye Cream

by Carol

Adverse Effects



I started using StriVectin Eye Cream and used it for several months and about 3 months into using it, my eyeslids started swelling up so I could hardly open my eyes. I also started having Sinus Congestion. I thought it was something else causing my eyes to swell and had this condition (which was getting worse) for several weeks. Not only were my eyelids swelling and having bad congestion, the area Under my eyes started to have large water bags. I aged 20 years in the 2 weeks. It scared me so bad I finally went to the doctor and he had me stop everything I was using on my face and use a steroid cream for a week. He could NOT say exactly what was causing the condition. After a week It cleared up really well and I started using different Face product. But I had so much of the "Strivectin eye cream" left that I thought I would use it up. THE FIRST TIME I USED IT AGAIN -- MY EYELIDS SWELLED UP SO HEAVY I COULD NOT OPEN THEM. What a CLEAR indication of what product is at fault. WHAT I WANT TO KNOW - Has anyone else had a reaction like this to Strivectin Eye Cream?
