If you’re shopping for a moisturizer, you are probably impressed—and intimidated—by the wealth of options available to you. From high-tech serums to simple pharmacy creams, there are an endless assortment of lotions and potions—something we’ve discussed at length on the blog before. So, where does eXO Face stack up against the competition? We’re rounding up some of the most popular face moisturizers out there and putting them head-to-head with eXO Face. Read on!
The Old Guard: La Mer Moisturizing Soft Cream
La Mer cream is beloved by many, thanks to its ultra-lush formulation and decades-long status as an “it” beauty product. Although now available in many versions, the La Mer Moisturizing Soft Cream is most similar to our newest product, eXO Face Bio.digital Moisturizing Cream; both are rich and luxurious face creams infused with proprietary ingredients and curated naturals (notably an array of marine-based ingredients). The big difference with eXO Face is our price—at $118 for 1.7 ounces, we’re a significantly more affordable option than La Mer, which clocks in at $335 for 3 ounces! Bring on the new guard, we say!
The Iconic Serum: Vintner’s Daughter
Infused with an array of seriously decadent botanical ingredients, Vintner’s Daughter has a true cult following. We’re all for a great serum—particularly one that multi-tasks like Vintner’s Daughter; with that said, fans of their product will love our original eXO Face Bio.digital Perfection Moisturizer, which hydrates, tones, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and brightens the face in just one step. If simple is your thing—give us a try!
The Natural Powerhouse: Tata Harper Repairative Moisturizer
Hats off to Tata Harper, who was pioneering in her vision of creating a natural, organic skincare line that merged clean ingredients with serious science. We’ve got nothing but respect for TH, and love how her line showcases the potent power of plants in an elegant way. That noted, eXO Face takes her ethos and super-charges it, using the world’s finest natural and organic ingredients (noni oil, sea lettuce, kelp, kombu, Irish moss, the list goes on…) paired with breakthrough Zen3 exosomes. We like to think we offer the ultimate combination of land, sea and me—aka the best natural ingredients of the earth and the ocean, enhanced with a human biological element, exosomes. We hope you agree!
The Sephora Standby: Drunk Elephant Protini™ Polypeptide Cream
The signature element in Drunk Elephant’s best selling moisturizer is “9 signal peptides,” which, according to its ingredient list are, “made up of amino acids that form proteins in the skin... [they]...are cell-communicating and serve to bind moisture to skin, plump, firm and restore bounce to skin’s appearance, helping to boost skin’s self-renewal.” Both versions of eXO Face continue a similar signature ingredient—exosomes—which bounce from cell-to-cell to transmit data, speed up cell turnover and lock in moisture. If you’re all about technology, then, we suggest checking us out—and, PS, here’s everything you need to know about exosomes.
