When I embarked on a maddening but joyful journey to develop THE perfect face and neck cream in early 2021, I was in no way prepared for the education I would receive and the passion required to breathe life into this dream. Driven by the lack of luxuriously clean, gentle yet effective products on the market that were formulated to be truly kind to sensitive skin, I wanted to craft a sumptuous daily staple that could be counted on to hydrate, replenish, fortify, restore and soothe through all of life’s unkind aggressors.
After meticulous research, years in formulation, and invaluable feedback from dermatologists, the team at the Mayo Clinic-affiliated SkinSAFE®, user feedback, and clinical testing, Gentle Armor® - the Hero of Day+West’s product launch (and HG to many) - has finally arrived.
A blend of plant-derived squalane for deep moisture, hyaluronic acid for a noticeable plump, calming calendula and prickly pear, and niacinamide for a soothed and luminous skin appearance, Gentle Armor® Face+Neck Cream is (finally!) available for purchase at https://dayandwest.com/products/gentle-armor.

Our skin, often a living reflection of our state of health and wellbeing, faces daily environmental challenges and stressors, with the facial and neck areas being the most exposed. A premium face cream shouldn't just deliver momentary results; it should provide enduring solace and fortification for the skin. The very intentional inclusion of bakuchiol, a gentle retinol alternative, refines skin texture without retinol’s harshness, making Gentle Armor ideal for sensitive, stressed, or reactive skin. There is no fragrance added to any of our products - which can cause irritation.
Our unique Phyto+Resilience Blend™, filled with antioxidants from organic and natural sources, is a signature element in Gentle Armor to fight environmental aggressors while illuminating the complexion. Key ingredients like Avena Sativa Oat Kernel Extract, Strawberry Fruit Extract, and others work together to leave the skin feeling firm, supple, and vibrant.
The journey to create this entailed a relentless pursuit to provide nothing but the finest to the skin. Gentle Armor now stands as more than just a cream; it’s a dedication to the tender love and fortification you deserve. It’s not just a skincare step but an elevated experience - a gentle and intimate embrace - enhancing your complexion's vigor and resilience. We hope you enjoy!
