Consider this moisturizer your desert island beauty champion — the universal cream that really can rule them all.
By Blending grand, 11 amino acids at optimal concentration with two peptides at 2.5% each, skin-identical Ceramide NP, an oil-soluble Vitamin C (THD) and a plethora of plant-based oils and extracts, we hope that both the skincare minimalist and skincare fanatic rejoice!
- Like a multi-vitamin for your face, this moisturizer is a concentrated formula of peptides, ceramides, vitamins, and a blend of 11 amino acids.
- Thoughtfully formulated to contain everything skin needs to enhance resilience, support water retention, and repair & revitalize itself — this overachiever puts other serums and treatments to shame.
- Its creamy, adaptable texture is beneficial for all skin situations and types — lightweight enough for oily skin types but able to be layered for buildable hydration for thirstier skin types. It absorbs into skin upon application for a velvety soft feeling that’s not slippery or greasy.
Skincare routines are so varied, but they all must end with one crucial step: protection. Properly protecting and sealing in your treatments makes the whole rigamarole worthwhile. Grand Amino Cushion Cream was created with the skincare minimalist as well as the skincare fanatic in mind — if they could share one moisturizer, here it is. Consider it your desert island beauty champion — the universal cream that really can rule them all. Its formula is a 5-star, all-you-can-absorb buffet of peptides, vitamins, ceramides, amino acids, antioxidants, and botanical oils. It includes everything to repair, brighten, and strengthen your skin barrier without any comedogenic occlusives, like lanolin, waxes, or silicones.
- The 11 Amino Acid Blend: Arginine, PCA, Glycine, Alanine, Serine, Valine, Isoleucine, Theonine, Proline, Histidine, Phenylalanine: This potent pack contains the building blocks for healthy skin. They help skin synthesize important proteins and nutrients, better retain water to stay hydrated, repair free radical damage, and help make your skin barrier more resilient against premature aging and environmental stress.
- Ceramide NP: This skin-identical ingredient is the goopy good stuff in between skin cells, keeping them cushioned together while filling in any gaps that could cause water loss.
- Niacinamide: AKA Vitamin B3, this skincare superstar helps soothe irritation, fade pigmentation, assist ceramide synthesis, and prevent hydration loss.
- Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5: This triple-amino acid peptide is a prime cell-communicating ingredient that’s all about protecting and boosting collagen synthesis, firming skin texture, and increasing elasticity. Clinically active level 2.5%. *After 4 weeks, women noticed an increased collagen level +76% in skin.
- Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38: This triple-amino acid peptide boosts the production of 6 major components (including collagen and hyaluronic acid) of the skin matrix that result in more even skin and fewer wrinkles on the forehead and crow’s feet. It can also deeply replenish nutrients. Clinically active level: 2% . *After two months, women between the ages of 42 to 70 reported a decrease in signs of aging up to 100%
- Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (THD): This is a stable, oil-soluble form of Vitamin C, which is a hero antioxidant for repairing free radical and environmental damage, brightening skin tone, and boosting collagen. Because it’s oilsoluble, it can penetrate into skin deeper for more thorough repairs.
- The Plant-Based Oils: Sunflower Seed Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Cranberry Seed Oil, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) Seed Oil, Safflower Seed Oil, Squalane: These emollients are all chosen for their nourishing properties that repair and form the building blocks of healthy skin barriers, brighten tone, smooth and firm texture, and enhance elasticity.
- The Antioxidants: Morus Alba (White Mulberry) Leaf Extract, Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Fruit Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Citrullus Lanatus (Watermelon) Fruit Extract, Chlorella Vulgaris (Algae) Extract, Hydrolyzed Rhodophycea Extract (red algae), Althaea Officinalis (Marshmallow) Root Extract: These botanical extracts contribute to a healthy diet for high-functioning skin. They help skin to expel damaged and defective cells, while repairing and energizing healthy cells for skin that better heals, brightens, and hydrates itself. Overall benefits when they work together include brighter skin tone, firmer elasticity, smoother texture, and less visible fine lines.
- Natural Moisturizing Factors: Sodium Lactate, Sodium PCA: These humectants attract and trap water to more effectively hydrate skin. They also calm irritation, smooth rough texture, and contribute to that plump, bouncy skin texture that radiates a healthy glow.
HOW TO USE: Apply as the last step in your skincare routine (don’t forget to layer SPF over it in the daytime, though). Massage and pat in a small amount over your entire face and neck. Repeat to build additional layers of moisture, depending on how thirsty your skin is feeling.
PORE CONFESSION: Quality over quantity pertains to your skincare routine too.

Returns & Exchanges
Once products leave the Socialite Beauty warehouse, all sales become final. Many products do not come with sanitary seals making it unsafe to put them back on the shelves. We want you as our customer to feel secure you're getting brand new, unused products from us. Because skin can take some time to adjust to new products as well as to detox from any changes, it is best to allow 2-3 weeks of use to see how your skin truly takes on new items. Sometimes a few uses alone is simply not enough time to let the new products get to work. If your product does have a seal and you would like to return it, please notify us via email if you will be returning a product you have purchased (firstname.lastname@example.org) and include images of the sealed product. Provide your invoice number and reason(s) for the return/exchange. Once merchandise has arrived back to us, we will issue a refund minus return shipping cost.
