This article will list award winning products and how their skin technology makes a difference for you in this new year and years to come. These favorite products are listed under each category:

Cleansing Products

Epionce Lytic Cleanser continues to shine with awards from Shape Magazine and The Beauty Authority. Epionce carries four lines of cleansing products, customized for each skin type. The Lytic Cleanser is wonderful at releasing dirt and grime, and oil without stripping the skin dry.


Toners and Facial Renewal Pads

Marie Claire’s Editor Choice chose ZO’s Complexion Renewal Pads that use Glycolic Acid + Salicylic Acid with a botanical to brighten and refine pores. 

Epionce carries three lines of toner- The Balance Toner hydrates and boosts moisture. It also allows other applications of skin care products to absorb better. 


Eye Creams

ALASTIN was awarded The Women’s Health Skincare 2021 Award for Restorative Eye Treatment. Alastin is known for their breakthrough TriHex technology which supports the skin in different ways: ALASTIN Skincare® formulates products with TriHex Technology, a proprietary blend of active peptides and botanicals specifically engineered to work with the skin to clear out old collagen and elastin proteins that have been damaged by sun exposure and aging while supporting the skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen and elastin.1 

ZO Creates a unique eye cream: Growth Factor Serum contains ZO® Growth Factor Technology: Enzymatic + plant-derived growth factors Neuropeptide: Fast-acting; improves the appearance of lines + wrinkles Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate: Visibly plumps through hydration + visibly fills in creases



If you are looking for effective results in brightening your skin, retinol is your answer. 

ZO gives impressive results with either a .25%, .5%, and 1% strength with the Retinol Skin Brightener. And they have Brightalive® for those who cannot use retinol. 

For those just beginning retinol, it is advised to begin at lower strengths (.24% or .5%) and build up over time to the fullest amount.

Another type of skin brightener created by iS Clinical and comes in serum form: Brightening Serum is a powerful formula that safely reduces the appearance of uneven skin tone, while providing significant controlled exfoliation without peeling.



Aging happens due to loss of elastin and collagen. And dry skin is a result of loss of moisture. What you use each day and consistently uses gives you a boost in stronger skin that is more resilient, supple, and age-defying. 

The winner of Shape’s 2021 Skin Award is Alastin Regenerating Skin Nectar. This is a revolutionary new skin care product that actually removes old skin and collagen, builds elastin and new collagen. Never before has a product been able to boast directly affecting the skin this way.
