Should I apply an additional SPF since this is only SPF 30?
SPF 50 is only about 1.3% more protective than SPF 30—but if you want extra protection, go ahead. The Multimodal Defender also offers Broad Spectrum coverage, which means it protects against UVA, UVB, infrared, and blue light rays.
Can this be used at night as well?
Yes! This is a true treatment product designed for both day and night use. Apply it in the evening to treat spots and wake up to brightened skin.
How long will the product last me?
It should last six weeks, if used as directed.
What if I see a white cast when applying the MMD?
Not to worry. That just means you need to blend it in fully. Within a few seconds of application, it warms and absorbs to your skin, leaving a soft, illuminated radiance.
Can you tell me about the texture of the Multimodal Defender?
The consistency of the Multimodal Defender is naturally rich and buttery—so buttery, in fact, that it comes with a spoon for optimal application. Thanks to its targeted blend of ingredients, it’s designed to have a thick, almost solid texture as it comes out of the jar. Once massaged, it transforms, heating to your body temperature and melting into a creamy, non-migrating balm. It then releases a potentially cooling effect, as it's fully absorbed into the skin and blended into your complexion. This unique texture accounts for how it appears in the jar, which is completely normal. It also makes it ideal for both allover and spot treatment (be more generous for day and opt for a thinner coat to treat dark spots), so you can easily measure exactly how much you’re applying.
Can I use a discount code on a subscription?
Subscriptions are already offered at a discounted price and are not eligible for additional discounts. If you have reward points, you can use them on a new subscription, or on the upcoming recurring order of your existing subscription. If you're purchasing a subscription for the first time, just proceed to the checkout page where you will be able to decide how many points you would like to redeem.

SIREN Capsule Technology™

The SCULPT is formulated with two unique SIREN Capsules, both designed to deliver ingredients where the visible effects of free radicals accumulate and away from healthy-looking balanced skin. They do this by helping to neutralize free radicals and minimize associated visible deficiencies, like stagnant fluid, sagging skin, and crepiness.

Packed with retinol and antioxidants, one SIREN penetrates deeply to optimize normal cell turnover for firmer-looking skin and help promote a visible de-puffing effect, while a second SIREN contains a blend of marine extracts, probiotics, and select ferments, delivering nutrients to the skin to boost hydration, and energize its appearance.
