How to use the Core Collection

This blogs covers how to use the Core Collection which includes our Reviving Cleansing Cream, AHA Dazzling Tonic and Radiance-Boosting Face Cream, along with some tips so you can get the most out of the products!

All three products are to be used morning and night, for best results. Consistency is key, when using skincare.


Step 1: Reviving Cleansing Cream

Consistency is key and we recommend cleansing twice a day, morning, and evening to remove grime, sweat, daily impurities, and makeup. Cleansing helps to prevent pores becoming blocked, improves skin’s complexion, and allows the other products you use after cleansing to be better absorbed and to penetrate the skin.

How to use the Reviving Cleansing Cream

Rub the cleanser (around the size of a 50p coin) into damp hands and massage onto your face and neck. 

As it is a cream cleanser, remove with a damp muslin cloth/flannel to make sure that the cleanser is fully removed. 

Dry with a hand towel, be careful not to drag the skin or be too harsh or heavy handed. It is important to remove ALL the cleanser from the skin, you should not leave it on there and your face should be completely dry before applying the tonic.

Tip: if you have makeup on, doing a double cleanse in the evening will make sure that all makeup is removed, and your skin is ready for the next step in your skincare routine. If you’re a gym-goer, then I’d recommend cleansing after working out too, due to the build-up of sweat – cleansing will help to unblock the pores. 

Benefits of the Reviving Cleansing Cream

  • Nourishes and hydrates the skin
  • Protects the skin against environmental stress
  • Helps heal damaged, tired skin
  • Reduces oiliness
  • Helps even skin tone, redness, and improves skin radiance

Step 2. Exfoliating Tonic with AHA & PHA

Gentle Exfoliating AHA and PHA Tonic


Used after cleansing, a tonic removes any dirt and grime you may have missed, and it helps to rebalance natural pH levels, this will help to increase absorption of the rest of the skincare products you use. The AHAs and PHA in our tonic mean it is a liquid exfoliant, and so sweeps away dead skin cells, helping with cell renewal, and it helps to minimise pores and tighten the skin. A tightening sensation is normal with this product.

Gentle Exfoliate with AHA and PHA Tonic

After cleansing, apply tonic to a cotton pad and wipe gently over dry skin both morning and night.

Tip: Always wear SPF when using chemical exfoliants in your skincare routine. For teens or those with highly sensitive skin, start off slowly by using it once a day in the evening and build up, you can also dampen the cotton pad and then apply the tonic to it to dilute it.


Benefits of the Exfoliating Tonic with AHA & PHA

  • AHAs increase cell renewal and exfoliate away dead skin cells, leaving the skin looking and feeling smoother and improves the complexion. 
  • PHAs are a gentle exfoliant that help to enhance cell renewal and exfoliate away dead skin whilst also providing moisture to the skin. 
  • Lactic Acid helps to increase cell turnover and reveal smooth, bright skin. 
  • Hyaluronic Acid helps to keep the skin hydrated by supporting epidermal skin hydration. 
  • Aloe Vera is an emollient which is skin soothing and conditioning. 
  • Sodium lactate attracts and binds to water and helps to provide hydration to the skin, reducing water loss from the skin.

Step 3. Radiance-Boosting Face Cream

Moisturising your skin helps to keep your skin hydrated and protect your skin from irritation, and environmental damage. Keeping your skin looking fresh and bright! All three products have been formulated with key ingredients, to complement each other and give the best result.

How to use the Radiance-Boosting Face Cream

Make sure the tonic has completely absorbed into the skin and your skin is dry. Use a pea-sized amount and apply to your face and neck and gently massage into your skin. Use both morning and evening.

Tip: less is more when it comes to applying the face cream, if you feel like your skin needs a bit more hydration and TLC use some more.

Benefits of the Radiance-Boosting Face Cream

  • Rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals
  • Helps even skin tone, redness, and improves skin radiance
  • Protects against environmental stress
  • Reduces oiliness and supports skin hydration
  • Soothes and hydrates skin
