Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2

Short Summary of the Product

This anti-aging cream restores and rejuvenates skin on a cellular level. By refilling lipids to moisturize skin, the Triple Lipid Restore by SkinCeuticals gives every skin type the love it deserves. This product will help fight both dehydration, aging lines and spots, and works well on dry, normal, oily, combination, and sensitive skin. The Triple Lipid Restore supports the skin’s external barrier with a cholesterol-dominant 2:4:2 ratio and improves skin laxity, radiance, and smoothness. 

First Impression (Packaging, Volume, Design etc.)

The creamy and smooth Triple Lipid Restore Cream comes in a 1.6 oz jar that is easy to travel with. It carries in a lightweight container and is small enough to fit in your airplane carry on. This cream is buttery and delicate when applied and brings a natural glow to any skin type. A little goes a long way with this product. 

The packaging and design is classy and straight to the point. 

My Take (What I liked or didn’t like, favorite features or overall opinion)

The lightweight feeling, smooth application, and pleasant texture of the Lipid Restore Cream are highlights of this product. It’s gentle on the skin and easy to apply once or twice a day for skin rejuvenation. SkinCeuticals is transparent with their ingredients and the promises they make to keep this cream chemical free. With over 500 five star reviews, this skin-rejuvenating cream is an anti-aging and hydrating solution for thousands of people. It’s apparent that SkinCeuticals is a company that is looking to nourish, rebalance, and care for their customers’ skin routines.  

Quality (How it compares to competitors? Is it worth the price?)

The Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 is a high-quality and well-tested product that stands out at the top when it comes to skin hydration and anti-aging. The price is high compared to similar products from other companies- at $128, there are less expensive products on the market. While the quality assures that the price is worth it, a bigger bottle would make the price more worth it.

Buy or Use Again?

This product is worth a repurchase. It’s easy to apply and makes skin feel hydrated, dewy, and fresh, making it a no-brainer to purchase again. This product is unique in its ingredients and production ratio that buying it again for a daily skin routine is worth it. It’s not a product that’s easy to purchase often, however, due to it’s price.

That’s Hot Rating (1-5 hearts)

4 hearts! This product is impressive and works, however it’s price could be lowered. 

Highlight 1

SkinCeuticals uses cutting-edge technology and innovation as well as impressive research to create the most effective skincare products backed by science.

Highlight 2

Every SkinCeuticals product is carefully researched and tested which relieves any anxiety about the products safety and quality. 

Highlight 3

The transparency of this company is one of the reasons their products are so reliable. This transparency makes people comfortable and allows customers to know exactly what they’re putting in their body.

Highlight 4

SkinCeuticals cares about helping others. They’re partnered with global non-profit ReSurge International to create the Pioneering Women in Reconstructive Surgery initiative that helps educate female reconstructive surgeons in developing nations and elevate their opportunities for success in their field. 

Cost Range

The cost range of SkinCeuticals products right now is $23 to $345 spanning across product categories and options within those categories. The cost of the Triple Lipid Restore by SkinCeuticals is $128. 

Cost Compared To Competitors

SkinCeuticals is priced relatively high compared to general market costs of similar products. Compared to its competitors, SkinCeuticals is priced in the middle of its competitors. Dermalogica offers products that are generally less expensive than SkinCeuticals- with serums ranging from about $40 to $100 less. However, companies like Gold Elements sell serums for hundreds of dollars more than SkinCeuticals products. 

Pro 1

An American company through-and-through, SkinCeuticals is widely known and used by dermatologists, medi-spas, and individuals with various skin types.

Pro 2

A product that delivers on quality- from the sleek design of the package to the results itself. 

Pro 3

The products are effective and designed for every skin type- no matter what issues, conditions, or skincare goals are being treated, SkinCeuticals has the solutions.

Pro 4

There is a generous 30 day window to return or exchange any SkinCeutical product for a full refund or a better-suited product.

Con 1

Most SkinCeuticals products are considered expensive, and therefore, not accessible to everyone. The Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 is expensive.

Con 2

SkinCeuticals does not ship internationally at this time. Hopefully this changes in the future so people all around the world can have access to their incredible products!

Con 3

It’s hard to figure out how sustainable SkinCeuticals products are and if their packaging and containers are recyclable. 

Con 4

SkinCeuticals products are popular – which is good for their company and sometimes bad for their customers. Products sell out quickly and if you don’t buy them through their website or a verified partner vendor, there’s a chance of purchasing a product that has gone through“Diversion.” (Getting a knockoff product sold by unauthorized vendors).


SkinCeuticals is dedicated to excellence and sophistication down to the packaging, which was inspired by test tubes, beakers, medicine bottles, and other lab equipment. The brand’s packaging is smart, sleek, and simple, and it’s easily unboxed with no mess. 


SkinCeuticals ships domestically almost all across the United States (Alaska and Hawaii are the exceptions, as they must ship with 2nd Day Air) via UPS Ground. Orders that cost between $1 and $100 have a $6 shipping rate, orders between $100.01 and $200 have a $7 shipping rate, and orders of $200.01 or more have an $8 shipping rate. It typically takes one to two business days for an order to be processed then up to five business days to be shipped. All orders can be tracked with a tracking number and link that will be sent to your email when your order has been processed and confirmed.

Good For Gifting?

SkinCeuticals products are not entirely gift material. They are nice gestures to recommend to friends and family, but they aren’t entirely gifts. If their products are going to be purchased as a gift, SkinCeuticals’s generous return policy allows for product return within 30 days of the original purchase and a full refund. 

Ideal Customer (Target Market)

While anyone could benefit from SkinCeuticals products, the company’s ideal customers are women 30+, especially those willing to spend extra on their health and beauty products.

Customer Service  

SkinCeuticals provides a Live Chat feature, an inquiry form, and toll-free help hotline under the “Contact Us” link on their website. They also have in-store assistance at health and beauty  vendors that sell SkinCeutical products. They can also be reached through social media platforms on Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, Pinterest, and Google+.

How Long Does The Product Last?

Depending how often the product is used and the quantity that is being applied- the Lipid Cream should last about 2-3 months. If a customer is unable to pay the $128 upfront upon their personal restock, they can cover the treatment in four interest-free payments of $32. 

Coupons/sales? What are the normal sales? When do they happen? How much is off?

There are temporary exclusive offers and sales on the SkinCeuticals website. There are also promo codes to and free samples of certain products at checkout. Signing up for the SkinCeuticals mailing list for exclusive offers, deals, and promotions is another way to review and use sales during purchase. 

Comparison to Competitor 1

Compared to Gold Elements, SkinCeuticals offers slightly less expensive products that have even better results and reviews. While both are luxury skincare brands, SkinCeuticals goes the extra mile to provide cutting-edge products that benefit a skin routine and long term skin goals. 

Comparison to Competitor 2

Both Dermalogica and SkinCeuticals offer top-tier skin, body, and health products. However, while SkinCeuticals products are generally more expensive, SkinCeuticals offers a bit higher standards for their product results. This company is committed to crafting carefully researched formulas backed by science to bring the most effective anti-aging and skin maintenance products available on the market.

Comparison to Competitor 3

Compared to Function of Beauty, SkinCeuticals products are more expensive, however, every product is worth the price. Function of Beauty has fewer products that aren’t researched like SkinCeuticals. SkinCeuticals products go beyond the skin to rejuvenate, hydrate, and promote the health of anyone’s skin on a deep, cellular level.
