  • 94%

    Skin shows an overall younger looking appearance

  • 91%

    Fine lines and wrinkles appear diminished

  • 81%

    Saw visible reduction in age spots & discoloration

This moisturizer is no joke! It applies non-greasy, and leaves my face feeling hydrated and looking smooth..a small dab lasts all day long! It's so much better than anything else I've tried.

The Real Deal. Skin looks nice and healthy. It’s always cool looking years younger than anyone you grew up with :). I use this combined with The Good to fight free radical damage and keep an over all healthy appearance. Other companies mask how your skin looks. I don’t like illusions … I like the real deal …. and the Base Layer is the real deal folks.

This product blows my mind. The minute you apply it to your face you can feel your skin tighten, and it lasts all day or night long. I apply it in the morning before I get on set. I’m a stuntman and work 12-14 hours a day. I feel my face at the end of my busy day and you can still feel it. Nothing like this product. I use all three of their products every day. One word that describes the experience, “awestruck”.

How to Use

Designed to be used every morning after washing your face. Apply a small amount (dime-size or less) to your face and neck. Product should absorb quickly and leave your skin with a matte, non-greasy finish.

FAQs

Does The Base Layer have SPF in it?

The Base Layer does not have SPF properties but it does help defend against environmental stress, pollution, and blue light (from tech devices). We recommend applying your daily SPF after you apply The Base layer.

Will it leave my skin greasy?

The Base Layer’s rich formula is designed to rub in easy and leave your skin with a shine-free, matte finish. For best results, only use a small, pea-sized amount when applying.

The Base Layer is a “morning moisturizer” but can I use it at night if I want to?

Yes! The Base Layer’s nutrient-dense formula will benefit your skin at any time of day.
