Love our products but wondering how you can use them all in a routine? We decided to write this article to help you along the way. The great thing about all of Sachi Skin’s formulations is that they are created to work in synergy with each other for optimised results. We also believe in a multi-corrective approach over single-ingredient formulations, so you can be assured that our products will cover many skin concerns along the way for a simpler routine. 

Here's a guide on how to layer Sachi Skin products together, starting with our bestseller.



You Set the Tone Duo


Product bundle for Sachi Skin's brightening and exfoliating products     Sachi Skin Triphala Pigmentation Corrector and Ursolic Acid & Retinal Overnight Reform

The Triphala Pigmentation Corrector targets uneven skin tone, stubborn hyperpigmentation and dark spots whilst the overnight Complexion Clarifying Accelerator works to amplify its results, helping to lift discolorations, target breakouts, congestion and retexture the skin to a new level of clarity.

You can apply the Triphala Pigmentation Corrector during the day to enjoy its antioxidant protection and brightening properties once daily, 2-3 times a week or twice daily for speedier results against fading dark spots. You can then exfoliate with the Complexion Clarifying Accelerator in the evenings once a  week, 2-3 times a week or as suited to your skin needs.

Try layering the more moisturising Complexion Clarifying Accelerator over the quick-absorbing Triphala Pigmentation Corrector at night to amplify fading, clarity and smoothness of skin complexion. Together they are just such a wonderful combination. The Complexion Clarifying Accelerator also has some key targeting actives with clinical proven results against melasma if you want to use the DUO to help fade the appearance of a very stubborn skin condition.


Beauty Tips when using You Set The Tone Duo

1. You can use this duo as a flash facial layering them together for 20-30mins for gorgeous glowing smooth skin.

2. You can substitute the Complexion Clarifying Accelerator for a moisturiser if you find it moisturising enough. This method works best over humid summers or if you have very oily skin.

3. Oily and blemish-prone skins will appreciate this powerful clarifying combination to maintain oil balance and keep breakouts at bay.


You Set the Tone Duo II


As the Triphala Pigmentation Corrector targets pigmentation concerns and rejuvenation, the Ursolic Acid & Retinal Overnight Reform complements it by stimulating skin cell turnover and supporting collagen production to target premature ageing, sun damage and breakouts for just plump and beautifully revived, radiant complexion. These two together make for a great all-round well ageing routine.

Use the Triphala Pigmentation Corrector in the morning as usual, and at night, layer your Triphala Pigmentation Corrector under the Ursolic Acid & Retinal Overnight Reform as it is a light silky fluid emulsion that absorbs quickly and cushions any sensitivity that Retinal might cause. Avoid using the Ursolic Acid & Retinal Overnight Reform during the day as Retinal can become unstable under sunlight and heat.

Beauty Tips when using You Set The Tone Duo II

Start by incorporating one product at a time. When you start using the Ursolic Acid & Overnight Retinal Reform, start use once or twice a week 3-4 days apart and increase use to two or three times a week to avoid any risks of irritation for those who are very sensitive.


Complexion Clarifying Accelerator + Ursolic Acid & Retinal Overnight Reform



In general, we would not recommend you to layer these two together unless you have very resistant skins or are a seasoned retinoid user. This combination of exfoliation and retinoids will lead to enhanced penetration of the Retinaldehyde, increasing risks of irritation and sensitivity.

We would suggest alternating use rather than layering them together on the same day. For instance, if you are using your Ursolic Acid & Retinal Overnight Reform 3 times a week, you can look into using your Complexion Clarifying Accelerator once a week as this will reduce the risk of irritation and enhance the efficacy of your retinoid use. For those who want a more enhanced approach you can layer the Complexion Clarifying Accelerator a night before the use of your Ursolic Acid & Retinal Overnight Reform and this will help enhance the penetration of the retinoid in a more controlled manner. 

More seasoned users may find that layering both at the same time works well but this can very quickly spiral into a case of over-exfoliation before you have even become fully aware of it, so tread carefully. For the morning after, we would recommend using additional hydrators along with the usual diligent SPF application to ease any damage to the skin barrier.


That being said here are some routines that have been shared with us over the last 12 months. Choose one that works best for your skin!

Option 1) Use Triphala Pigmentation Corrector twice a day, Ursolic Acid & Retinal 2 times a week at night and Complexion Clarifying Accelerator once a week.

Option 2) Use Triphala Pigmentation Corrector 3-4 times a week, Ursolic Acid & Retinal 3 times a week at night and Complexion Clarifying Accelerator 2-3 times a week as a mask.

Option 3) Use Triphala Pigmentation Corrector twice daily 3 times a week, Ursolic Acid & Retinal 2-3 times a week at night and Complexion Clarifying Accelerator once a week.

Option 4) Use Triphala Pigmentation Corrector twice daily twice a day, Ursolic Acid & Retinal once a week at night and Complexion Clarifying Accelerator three times a row, Thursday, Friday Saturday.

Remember, when using any products, always listen to your skin and work with your skin.


Summing up, below is the suggested routine application:


Since these are transformative products, it is best to slowly incorporate one product at a time into your routine and wait for your skin to be acclimated before introducing a second product, and make sure to always use SPF30 or above daily, especially the day after using Retinoids and exfoliants. 

Wishing you beautiful, healthy, happy clear skin!
