StriVectin is launching a new range, Get Even, that targets dark spots and skin discolorations.
Formulas are six times more effective than those of competitors due to its proprietary accelerator, NIA-114, according to StriVectin, which operates under Chrysallis, the management arm of parent Catterton Partners. Get Even, which will roll out to stores such as Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, Sephora and Ulta in January, consists of Brightening Serum and Spot Repair to slow down the production of melanin, normalize the transfer of pigment and increase cell turnover.
The serum is described as “highly potent” and “quick absorbing,” meant for all over the face to target mild to moderate age spots, sun spots and dark spots. Spot Repair is packaged in a twist pen applicator to pinpoint dark, stubborn spots.
In 12-week, independent, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trials against other brightening products, StriVectin-EV was proven to be six times more effective in four weeks versus competitors. In addition to NIA-114, products include natural tyrosinase inhibitors, willow bark extract, vitamin C, sugar beet and pomegranate extract.
Items will retail for $49 for the Get Even Spot Repair and $89 for the Get Even Brightening Serum at QVC and online, in addition to stores.
According to StriVectin, which consists of about a dozen products targeting skin concerns including stretch marks, tightening and sensitive skin, the brand experienced a 25 percent increase in sales in 2011 over last year, which were estimated at $100 million globally. StriVectin is ranked as the sixth best-selling skin care brand in Sephora SA, as well as the number-one selling exclusive skin care brand across Europe, and ranks as The NPD Group’s leading neck cream in prestige.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

The @dior-sponsored @guggenheim international gala pre-party has a history of drawing cool-girl musical acts to serenade the crowd –– and last night was no exception. @haimtheband performed songs both new and old, and lured a star-studded audience with the likes of Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Mamoudou Athie and more. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
