Something old, something new

When it comes to skincare, it’s all in the mix

Is your old routine feeling a bit ho-hum? In honor of our 20th anniversary, we’re looking back at our heritage as we turn the page on a whole new era.  Here’s how you can hit refresh on your much-loved products with these all-new pairings and make everything old brand new again.

 Take our iconic SD Advanced™ PLUS Intensive Moisturizing Concentrate, the product that started it all when we first launched 20 years ago. An instant icon and the #1 selling stretch mark cream turned anti-wrinkle phenomenon, SD Advanced reimagined the science of collagen - and it just keeps getting smarter. In 2019, we upgraded its first-of-its-kind technology to target ten types of skin-boosting collagen, making it more potent than ever before. The product that started it all, SD Advanced, is StriVectin science at its best. So how to take an icon and amp it up a notch? Pair it with something super.

Before you moisturize, we recommend using our Super-C Retinol Brighten & Correct Vitamin C Serum. Vitamin C meets Retinol for your best & brightest skin in this supercharged serum. For those in the know, it’s all about that glow: target dullness, rough texture, uneven skin tone, loss of elasticity, and even fine lines. And unlike many Vitamin C serums, this lightweight formula soaks into skin in a flash without tacky or sticky residue, making it ideal for layering under moisturizer or makeup. Restore your radiance by combining an icon with a new fan favorite.

And as we look back on 20 years of smart science, we must give credit where credit is due.

Called “the holy grail of neck creams” by Elle Magazine, our TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream PLUS has helped us become the   #1 selling skincare brand for the neck+décolleté.* This best-selling cream was born in 2008 and received an upgrade in 2018. Conceived initially to target lines and wrinkles on the skin below your chin, our current reliance on technology and too much screen time have made this product a must-have to target Tech Neck™ or the appearance of horizontal lines from too many hours logged looking down at our phones/computers/etc. And if you’re looking for an excellent plus one for this heavy-hitting hero, try our NEW Contour Restore™ Tightening & Sculpting Face Cream to target natural elastin for visibly firm, plump, and lifted skin. This new moisturizer can help you get your bounce back and visibly restore contour to the face and jawline. Formulated with Elastin-Targeting Dipeptides to address the loss of volume and sagging skin for a visibly lifted, plump look, this uplifting cream just received an upgrade to Targets sagging skin and loss of volume for visibly firmer, plumper lifted skin. Add this to your neck cream routine and give your face some tightening loving care.

Think of these “plus ups” as ways to give your skincare routine a boost. Because when you combine the tried and true with something new, you’ve got the perfect formula for healthier-looking skin. Cheers to getting older (and a whole lot wiser.)
