Meet the icons:

Two products that made us famous (and changed the skincare game)

With science front and center in global conversations about skincare and beyond, we wanted to dedicate this post to two of our best-selling products and absolute icons. We are a brand that is proud of our heritage and that all our products are born in a lab, not in a boardroom. Because of our science first approach to skincare, you always expect results and a unique approach to common skin solutions, with an unmatched love of proof, truth and of course, science. Let’s talk about two products that are beloved by beauty editors and skincare enthusiasts alike, because they deliver on some of the best skincare benefits you can imagine.

If you are looking for an all-around moisturizer perfect for smoothing the look of lines and wrinkles while providing significant hydration and boosting radiance, our SD Advanced™ PLUS Intensive Moisturizing Concentrate is a stellar choice. This product started out as a stretch mark cream, but as it was being tested, we saw that it worked wonders on facial fine lines and wrinkles, too.  Before long, it became known as the “stretch mark turned anti-wrinkle phenomenon” for its logical scientific approach to aging. As we age, our collagen depletes, so we created a formula to target collagen and visibly plump the skin. And though this concentrate doesn’t include any collagen, it targets it with hyper-effectiveness. Not only is it the #1 selling stretch mark cream*, but it's more concentrated and powerful than ever to help target 10 types of skin collagen. And because it's a "concentrate," it's formulated with ingredients at their clinically active levels to make it a super-efficient wrinkle specialist. Follow with your favorite SPF and wonder how you ever lived without it. Many call it their “one and done” product because it's just that good.

And whether you're new to the brand or a faithful fan, no StriVectin regimen is complete without our iconic TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream PLUS. It's not only the first cream created exclusively for the neck, it’s also the #1 selling cream exclusively for the neck & décolleté**. It's a fact that the skin on your neck is different from the skin on your face. The neck has less fatty tissue and collagen and fewer oil glands, which is why this skin can appear slack, loose, dry, and crepey. Only a neck cream can give this delicate skin what it needs to be its best, and ours is essential. It visibly tightens, lifts, and firms the neck for a more youthful-looking profile and smooths the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the neck and décolleté, and targets crepey texture. It also strengthens the skin barrier to prevent moisture loss and diminishes the look of discoloration on the décolleté. Our common sense, science-first approach to firming and tightening is tried and true.

Now that you know a bit about how these products came to be, show your skin some love with two must-have classics you'll reach for again and again and all year round.
