The Regimen

Should You Stick to One Skincare Brand?

It seems like every week, there's a new skincare brand launching. With so many products out there, it can be tough to know which ones to choose. Among the many factors to consider is the question of brand exclusivity. 

Should you choose all your skincare products from the same brand? Does it matter if you mix and match products across multiple skincare lines? The choice to be a brand loyalist or a cherry-picker is up to you, but there are some definite advantages to finding your hero brand and sticking to it.


Enhance Results

If you're very knowledgeable about ingredients, you may find mixing and matching products from multiple brands works for you. However, it is a bit more effort, and certainly more expense, to figure out through trial and error which products from different lines will play well together.

The biggest advantage of choosing products from the same brand is compatibility and enhanced results. Vivant's products are formulated to work together synergistically to deliver optimal results and bring comprehensive improvement in the skin—from clarity to tone to texture. Each product is formulated to enhance the efficacy of the next, magnifying the benefits across the board.


Minimize Problems

Mixing and matching products from various lines can impede progress toward your skin goals because the ingredients and formulations may not align. For example, vitamin A and glycolic acid are a great pair, but if you are using them in two disparate products, you could get too much of a good thing.

If you're not an expert, it can be tough to navigate ingredient lists to know how to avoid things like over-exfoliating or over-drying the skin with potent actives

The synergized, single-line regimen ensures that non-complementary formulations don't get in the way of product absorption or efficacy, and percentages remain balanced to avoid irritation. 


Save money

Aside from being time-consuming, trying products from multiple lines can get expensive. You can't be sure the products will integrate well with the rest of your skincare stable. Or you may discover the results aren't what you were expecting.

When you use one brand, you can count on consistency in quality and results across the line, so you won't waste money on unnecessary or ineffective products.

The best brands guarantee their products, so you're not out of pocket if you find something isn't working as expected. Vivant gives you a full sixty days to try your products and, if you aren't completely satisfied, you can return them for a full refund. Additionally, you receive a 10% discount when you purchase a complete Vivant 4-step regimen.  


Bottom Line

Mixing and matching products from various lines may mean none of them will work their best. Similarly, opting for one high-end product and skimping on the others undermines your star pick.

Using products designed to work in complement maximizes the benefits of all your regimen components. It's about the right ingredients in the right formulations used in the right sequence.


Take the 30-Day Challenge

Drop all other products and use only Vivant for thirty days. Why thirty days? Because that's the average length of a complete cell cycle. It's the optimum time to evaluate your results. During that time, your skin will acclimate, problems brewing in the deeper layers of the skin will get pulled to the surface to be sloughed away. And you will get a true sense of how the products can transform your skin.
