For quite a while, skincare experts have endorsed retinol as the anti-aging all-star. But the vitamin A-derived ingredient has a serious new competitor to contend with: it’s called NIA-114, and it’s a form of niacin, or vitamin B3, that was recently formulated by a pair of biochemists. Now NIA-114 is being praised as a game-changer, but you can only find the patented wrinkle-fighting ingredient in one brand: StriVectin.

Now’s your chance to give NIA-114 a spin on your own thirsty skin. StriVectin Peptight 360-Degrees Tightening Eye Serum is on sale at QVC for just $48 — that’s $21 off the regular price, or a savings of more than 30 percent. 

If you're a first-time QVC shopper, you can get $15 off with code HOLIDAY. The site even lets you opt for five interest-free payments of less than $10 each thanks to its Easy Pay program.

StriVectin Peptight 360-Degrees Tightening Eye Serum comes in a .25-ounce tube that bears a cooling metal applicator, so you can smear the stuff on your sensitive under-eye skin, then gently swirl it around and pat it — never rub! The lightweight serum absorbs easily and keeps your lids plump and hydrated.

As the key ingredient in StriVectin’s popular eye serum, NIA-114 works to keep the top layer of your skin thick, strengthening the barrier so your skin retains moisture. In the best-case scenario, this is what prevents fine lines from settling in. And around the eyes is where lines love to live.

“I love how refreshing this serum feels when I apply it. My eyes look brighter and less tired. Wrinkles are definitely less noticeable,” noted one five-star reviewer. “In such a short time I see less crow's feet,” added another.
