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.

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 three 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 contains elements that help promote and stimulate collagen production, protecting 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 promotes collagen 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 Matrixylface serum. These work together in soothing the skin and hydrating the skin to help with aging signs, respectively.

Lastly, our tinted multi-stick is a recommended option for all your skin glow needs when traveling or going about your daily routine. A three-in-one combination, working to provide the results of lipstick, blush, and eyeshadow, this stick is meant to be accessible for those of all skin tones. It works simultaneously in hydrating and providing the skin with a radiant appearance. Its active ingredients sodium hyaluronate and shea butter go hand-in-hand in creating this powerful formula.

Sodium hyaluronate is found in many skincare products, such as moisturizers and face serums. This is due to its effective results in improving skin firmness, texture, and overall hydration. It’s a favorable ingredient for those looking to reduce aging signs and smooth out fine lines.

Shea butter is a popular antioxidant that is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, as many body lotions are advertised with this active ingredient. It boosts skin hydration while soothing and healing irritated skin. By incorporating shea butter into the formula, this stick provides the skin with a healthy, dewy glow, leaving a healthy flush of color on the face.

This product is lightweight in both its formula and your handbag. It can be used as necessary for those with all types of skin tones, especially those who suffer from dull skin. It can be beneficial to test a speck of the stick on a patch of skin first to find out your desired skin color or tone.
