How To Use


Work a pea-sized amount of Glycolic Cleanser 12% between wet hands and lather over face for no more than 30 seconds, avoiding the eye area. Follow with an application of Moisture Defence Oily Skin.

We also recommend an application of Age Defence SPF50+ in the AM (not included in the 5 step Clearing Kit).


Work a pea-sized amount of Glycolic Cleanser 12% between wet hands and use all over your face in light, circular motions to avoiding the eye area. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and lightly pat dry. Note: if wearing makeup you may like to use Gentle Cleanser as your first cleanse then perform a second cleanse with Glycolic Cleanser 12%). Follow Retinol Serum; for the first week of use, start by using one pea-sized amount of Retinol every third evening. For the second week, apply the same amount every second evening, gradually building up to every evening by the third week of use. Apply to clean, dry skin and gently blend outwards in a circular motion, slowly spreading onto the entire face, throat and chest while avoiding the eye area. Finish with an application of Moisture Defence Oily Skin.

Once or twice per week add in your Glycolic Scrub 14% – Work a pea-sized amount onto wet hands and carefully massage into your skin while avoiding the eye area. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and gently pat dry. Do not use on red or inflamed skin.

Laser Aid - As needed – can be used daily by applying liberally to skin inflammation or irritation. Can be used as an overnight moisturiser or anti-inflammatory mask worn for 20 minutes. It provides instant relief with a cooling sensation to quickly calm red and inflamed skin, and painful breakouts.

Skintel/Pro Tips

Always apply sun protection in the AM – We love Age Defence SPF50+.

Please note: it’s quite normal to experience some initial redness and/or some dryness or flakiness when first using Retinol. Keep the faith and your skin will normalise but if you’re at all concerned, double check you’re using the right amount as a first step and consult your skin therapist as a second.

When first working Glycolic Cleanser 12% into your regime, you might like to alternate with Gentle Cleanser (as your skin adjusts to the higher intensity cleanser).

Glycolic Cleanser 12% can also be used as a targeted spot treatment; you dab a little directly onto a pimple or breakout with a cotton tip and leave on overnight. Also great as a detoxifying body wash, you can use it to help address acne on the chest or décolletage or apply it directly onto back breakouts neat and leave for up to five minutes.
