Grand Amino Cushion Cream
For all skin types.
This is HoliFrog's first moisturizer crafted to make a super cream suitable for all skin situations - not too heavy (think velvety, not slippery) but buildable for thirstier skin.
By blending grand, 11 amino acids at optimal concentration with two peptides at 2.5% each, skin-identical Ceramide NP, an oil-soluble Vitamin C (THD) and a plethora of plant-based oils and extracts, both the skincare minimalist and skincare fanatic will rejoice!
- Like a multi-vitamin for your face, this moisturizer is a concentrated formula of peptides, ceramides, vitamins, and a blend of 11 amino acids.
- Thoughtfully formulated to contain everything skin needs to enhance resilience, support water retention, and repair & revitalize itself — this overachiever puts other serums and treatments to shame.
- Its creamy, adaptable texture is beneficial for all skin situations and types — lightweight enough for oily skin types but able to be layered for buildable hydration for thirstier skin types. It absorbs into skin upon application for a velvety soft feeling that’s not slippery or greasy.

Don't forget to layer SPF over it in the daytime, though.
Massage and pat in a small amount over your entire face and neck.
Repeat to build additional layers of moisture, depending on how thirsty your skin is feeling.

Our skin is thicker than frogs but we live in toxic environments too, filled with free radicals, questionable air quality, and Twitter trolls. Even the thickest skin needs to take care of itself.
When we wash our faces, our pores are at their most open and permeable, like a frog’s. This stage of your skincare routine is essential to your skin’s health and the rest of your beauty regime. We use bioactive ingredients that give positive results—nothing toxic, nothing irritating. It’s what thick and thin skin needs, when it needs it.
