01.Retinol can cause irritation, redness and peeling in early stages of use, before the skin builds tolerance. This indicates that the cream is working. However, if irritation persists use with less frequency

02. For first time users, we strongly advise patch testing prior to use

03. Start small, gradually increasing amount and frequency to build tolerance

04. Use with caution on sensitive areas such as around the eyes and mouth as irritation can occur

05. Due to the nature of retinol, the yellowish colour of the cream may become darker over time and you may notice a unique smell to the product

06. Use immediately after purchase and store in the fridge at 3~10 degrees celsius

07. Avoid using with acids such as AHAs, BHAs and highly concentrated vitamin Cs

08. Avoid using with physical scrubs or peeling gels

09. Avoid using with electronic beauty devices

Results may vary depending on skin type. Before jumping on any new skin product, it is recommended to do a skin patch test for any allergic reaction.

A rejuvenating set is a skin care set composed of a soap (facial cleanser), toner, day cream with SPF, and night cream with peeling properties. As the name implies, it is meant to rejuvenate or renew the skin by assisting or accelerating its exfoliation process.

All rejuvenating sets have peeling properties, which explains why almost all have anti- acne and whitening benefits (these are also two of the most popular skin care concerns of Filipinos). The active ingredients that make Rejuv sets effective are a combination of either one or more of the following: AHA, BHA, Hydroquinone, and Tretinoin.
