Melting Cleansing Balm™ because it is important to have a thorough cleanse that does not strip the skin of its natural oils. If you wear face make up, please do a double cleanse at night only. First to remove make up and second, to clean the skin. Use with Daily Cleansing Cloths™ for a facial-quality ‘steam-clean’.

Iconic Youth Serum™
Important to every skin type this will not feel greasy and yet gives vital nourishment and hydration.

Intensely Youthful Eye Cream™
The skin round the eyes is thinner and so, more susceptible to the first signs and continuing skin ageing. Intensely Youthful Eye Cream is power-packed to prevent and perfect skin ageing and importantly has a fairy light texture so that it does not exacerbate oiliness.

Skin Brightening Exfoliating Peel™
Oily skins can look sallow and ‘thick’. Using this 2-3 times per week will refine the skin, give clarity, reduce sallowness and add radiance. This also refines the look of pores for a smoother more refined skin surface and your foundation will also achieve a sheerer finish.

Oily and lined skin

Overnight Recharge Night Cream™
I call this the ‘gym for your skin’ because the high performance actives go to work while you sleep and boost the skin’s natural repairing and regenerating activity. Ingredients that support the collagen network, reduce the signs of fatigue caused by lack of sleep and daily living and fight the visible signs of gravity, stimulating elastin synthesis to lift and firm the skin. Sytenol A an amazing ingredient that has all the anti-ageing benefits of retinols but without the worry of sensitivity. Two molecular weights of hyaluronic acid for vital hydration and moisturisation and you will see the difference immediately and the next morning

Classic combination skin

Oily & spot-prone skin

Characteristics; shiny, sallow or yellow in tone, congested, slightly ‘thick’ looking, foundation often changes colour, pores are often enlarged. Spots frequency and intensity will vary from person to person, from the occasional spot to a presence of several spots at all times. If it is full-blown acne, I advise you to seek the help of a dermatologist specialising in Acne. Professor Anthony Chu is one that is good, in my opinion. Do also see my blog on dealing with spots linked here...

Follow with...

Luxury Facial Wash™ and Manual Cleansing Brush™ to clean your skin.

In addition, it contains Happy Skin which contains Rhodiola Rosea, known as the ‘molecule of happiness, to help you feel less miserable about the spots! It is also an effective anti oxidant.

Morning Cleanse – use your choice of the above cleansers, depending on how your skin is behaving with regards the spots and chop and change as needed.

Importantly the Echium oil is nature’s richest source of SDA, which is a powerful anti inflammatory and helps to calm the irritation and redness of spots, while keeping you skin in brilliant condition.

Concentrated Spot Treatment™
This is genius for combatting spots without ending up with that horrible crusty mess that is impossible to conceal. Dab on morning and night, direct to the spot. I use a bigger blob at night, allowing it to dry onto skin before hitting the pillow. You can always carry it with you during the day to re-apply if required.

Skin Brilliance Supplements™ containing Echium Oil has a remarkable anti-inflammatory action on the skin, which is exceptionally calming. Many report that this has a positive effect in calming problematic and spot-prone skins. Certainly that has been my own personal experience and for the first time in decades I am not on topical antibiotics to treat acne/spots.

Skin Brightening Exfoliating Peel™
Dry skins often look dull and this will ‘peel away the grey’ and the years. Added benefit is the ability for the skin to more effectively absorb your treatment products and therefore get better results. The skin, looking brighter and clearer, helps to diminish the visibility of other ‘issues’ in the skin. For those with lines, having removed the dead skin cells, the line looks less obvious, more refined and skin more youthful.

Melting Cleansing Balm™ with Daily Cleansing Cloths™ provides a rich, gentle, yet thorough cleanse that leaves skin plump, comforted and hydrated.
