FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
First you want to apply the Pro Resilience Serum and allow this to absorb into the skin before layering the Ursolic Acid and Retinal Overnight Reform. Just a note Vitamin A (Retinal) absorption is enhanced when the skin is wet, applying the Ursolic Acid and Retinal Overnight Reform to dry skin reduces the skin of irritation issues.
Yes, do allow the solution to fully absorb onto dry skin to avoid any irritation issues.
While both products are targeted to address all signs of aging, it also addresses sun damage, dehydration, congestion and targets discolorations to brighten the overall complexion, making it a great companion for your healthy radiant skin routine.
Usually, it will reveal a hydrated, plumper and radiant glowy skin within 7-10 days. However to address more specific stubborn concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, stubborn discolourations - retinoids usually show the best results around 3-4 personal skin cycles (noting that your skin cycle can be anything between 4-6 weeks for example) and the number of days in a skin cycle can vary per person.
Due to the nature of Vitamin A products in Ursolic Acid & Retinal Overnight Reform, we always recommend that you conduct a patch test and wait 24-48 hours at the very minimum before using any product. Note that side effects from retinoid use can include irritation, sensitisation, dryness, flakiness, tenderness and soreness. Although our formulation includes hydrators and barrier support to reduce the risk of any side effects some may still experience them.
For maximised and amplified results, we highly recommend you join the Ursolic Acid & Retinal Overnight Reform and Pro Resilience Serum with the Triphala Pigmentation Corrector to more directly tackle hyperpigmentation and discoloration issues and to support skin even tone.
Due to the Retinal (Vitamin A) content, this formula is not recommended if you are pregnant/breastfeeding.
