What are Skincare Serum Sticks? - Benefits, Uses, And More

Packing your travel bags with overflowing moisturizers, creams, and serums is a thing of the past. Not only will your packing list grow shorter, but your skincare routine will be cut in half with the innovative skincare serum sticks that have been released in the past several years. They check all the necessary boxes in terms of ease of application, convenience, and covering multiple steps in one.

What Kind of Skincare serum Stick Should I Use?

If you’re new to the skincare stick trend, it can be overwhelming when looking for products to try. There are so many types that treat different areas and conditions. There are sticks for the area around the eyes, moisturizing sticks, hydrating sticks, toner sticks, and even sticks that can be used as sunscreen after a skincare routine. The possibilities of this newfound skincare convenience that can be taken on a plane appear to be limitless and are only growing more innovative.

If there’s a new trend in skincare, Depology is bound to have been one step ahead. Tracking skincare trends and popular routines is a constant motion and skincare sticks and balms are no exception. So, what types of products have been originating from the Peninsula, the heart of the skincare industry?

Best skincare Sticks for the Face

While our offerings vary in benefits and ingredients, these five sticks in particular have been shown to reveal nearly immediate effects. Targeted different areas, no patch of skin is left untreated.



Ideal for eye care and the surrounding area, our eye stick is well-rounded in the way its formula works. Not only does it treat fine lines and wrinkles and slow down the formation of new ones, but it results in firmer, more youthful skin. Its main active ingredients include Argireline™, Simmondsia Chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, and Olea Europaea, also known as olive oil.

The peptide Argireline™ essentially mimics the results of using injectables as a reverse aging treatment. Argireline™ helps to prevent the facial muscles from contracting, decreasing the formation of new wrinkles and aging signs.

Simmondsia Chinensis, or jojoba seed oil, is an antioxidant famous for its hydrating and antibacterial properties. It has been known to help with various skin conditions, such as acne, chapped skin, sunburns, and psoriasis. It provides soothing benefits while restoring the skin’s protective barrier as well as being a gentle ingredient with no fragrance.

Another gentle active ingredient, Olea Europaea, or olive oil, works with all skin types, making it an inclusive addition to the formula. Those who suffer from extremely dry and sensitive skin are especially going to see the results of this ingredient. Best of all, you can use it as frequently as necessary, leaving the skin soft and silky. It is, however, recommended to use at least once per day to experience desired results.

If you’re looking for an even stronger formula, try using our Multi-Peptide Anti-Aging Eye Stick with one of our patches. Rather than using one of these products alone, together, they are more effective at combatting aging signs.  




Providing all-day care and being handy for travel needs, this moisturizing all-purpose stick works to decrease and prevent further aging signs while simultaneously working to retain moisture in the skin. Its main active ingredients black caviar extract, bakuchiol, astaxanthin, and jojoba seed oil (the benefits of which can be found above) all have a synergistic relationship in terms of skincare treatment.

An emollient, black caviar extract has soothing and skin-softening properties. It focuses on hydrating and retaining moisture in the skin as well as tackles redness and inflammation symptoms. It also protects the skin’s barrier against oxidative damage.

In the modernized improvement to this stick, the overall size was reduced and bakuchiol was included as an active component alongside its other ingredients. This results in enhanced benefits by producing retinol-like effects while being less irritating as a retinoid. This plant-based, natural ingredient triggers the genetic pathway in skin cells that support collagen levels and overall skin health.

A potent antioxidant, astaxanthin has been found to improve overall skin texture and elasticity when used topically. It can be used as a treatment for many conditions, including the reduction of age spots, eleven lines, crow’s feet, and smile lines.

For the best results, try combining the multi-stick with anti-wrinkle patches or Matrixyl face serum. These work together in soothing the skin and hydrating the skin to help with aging signs, respectively.



Let's face it, the eyes don't just serve as our window to the world; they often reflect our health, mood, and sleep patterns.

Its formulation ensures easy application, resulting in a seamless finish, making it an asset to both skincare enthusiasts and professionals alike.

At the core of its effectiveness are two key retinoids: Bakuchiol and HPR. Bakuchiol, recognized as a botanical alternative to retinol, provides significant anti-aging benefits without the typical retinol-induced side effects. Complementing it is HPR, a retinoid that enhances skin rejuvenation, ensuring comprehensive and lasting results. The formula is further bolstered by fatty acids, which strengthen the skin's barrier, ensuring hydration and resilience against environmental stressors. Moreover, the inclusion of turmeric, a potent anti-inflammatory agent, guarantees a radiant complexion by addressing underlying skin inflammation.

Designed with a universal appeal, the Bakuchiol Smoothing Serum Stick is especially beneficial for those noticing preliminary signs of aging. Its formulation ensures it's gentle yet effective, making it suitable for a wide range of skin types.

The Bakuchiol Smoothing Serum Stick is more than just a product; it's a strategic addition to any sophisticated skincare regimen. Its unique blend of ingredients, ease of application, and proven results position it as a frontrunner in advanced skincare solutions. For those in pursuit of excellence in skincare, this serum stick promises to be an indispensable asset to your skin.



Ever wondered how to deal with that pesky redness? We've got your answer. With a host of anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, Azelaic Acid has been hailed as the new "miracle" ingredient for sensitive skin. The Depology Azelaic Acid Cooling Serum Stick, our latest skincare star. A unique blend of nature's best-kept secrets, this serum is tailor-made for those who want a little more from their skincare routine.

Incorporating the gentle yet effective Tetrapeptide-14, this serum modulates pro-inflammatory signals, providing immediate relief from irritation and redness. Ideal for those with rosacea or for post-sun exposure care, it's a balm for inflamed skins. But that's not where its prowess ends—this product also features the formidable Azelaic Acid, a veritable powerhouse that promises to tackle redness, reduce inflammation, and actively promote a luminous, even-toned complexion.

Furthermore, this serum is a flexible support to any skincare routine because to the moisturising power of niacinamide, which not only locks in necessary moisture but also visibly evens out discolorations. It guarantees that your skin is protected against environmental aggressors and remains supple, plump, and strong thanks to the ceramides' barrier-strengthening abilities. What more could you ask for?

Housed in a handy stick format, this serum is easy to use on-the-go or at home (anywhere you find yourself). With 10g per tube and no parabens or sulfates, every swipe is towards better looking skin!
