Gift sets are some of my favorite items to give during the holidays because (1) they cut the guessing game in gift-giving (2) they make awesome stocking stuffers (3) you can mix and match and come up with your own customized gift sets. As a receiver, any of these will definitely thrill me to the max!

    My Experience with Strivectin Oxygen Infusion Mask and Tightening Neck Cream

    I've been feeling under the weather for a week now; with daily patient interactions, colder days and lack of sleep, my immunity level slipped so here I am sniffling and coughing in between writing. So while I'm not really digging the full makeup mode lately, there's one thing I ain't skipping: skincare! I had the opportunity to try two of Strivectin's products, the Oxygen Infusion Mask and Tightening Neck Cream. Scroll down for more scoop!

    Strivectin Oxygen Infusion Mask, Strivectin Tightening Neck Cream, Review

    Let's segue to my favorite, the star of this review so to speak. Oxygen mask has become the next "best thing" in the realm of skincare. Previously available in select spas or doctor's office via pressurized steam, this unique facial experience has reached the consumer level sans the frills. Strivectin's Oxygen Infusion Smoothing Mask claims to purify skin by removing dead surface cells, minimize dullness, reduce lines and wrinkles. While it does sound like a generic mask, what makes it unique is the experience from start to finish.
