SKOON. is test-driving Vitamin A
Like to join us for the trip?

The onset of colder weather and reduced sun exposure during May/June in the Southern Hemisphere is the perfect time to reset your skin - with intensive, rejuvenating treatments.

 

SKOON. has decided to test-drive one of our bestsellers, RETININ Retinal 0.1% resurfacing cream, against a prescription vitamin A product.

I suggest you first read my in-depth blog to find out Everything you need to know about Vitamin A in skin care.

When I started writing about Vitamin A for this blog post, the idea of a small in-house trial suddenly dawned on me. Amazingly enough, I have never personally used vitamin A. I can’t think why ever not. (creature of habit, not! ☺).

For this 30-day product test drive, I am going to apply RETININ Retinal 0.1% resurfacing cream on my left cheek … complete with one, solitary big liver spot. (Am I the only one thinking so - but even the words ‘liver spot’ sound like something you want to banish immediately!)

On my other cheek, I will apply a prescription-based retinoic acid – brand name Retin-A.

If you’d like to join the SKOON. the trial, we’d love that.

We have our Dream Team duo pack on special at the moment – available at skoonskin.co.za or at select beauty and wellness retailers. This pack includes Wow-Wow Wonder with 3% Vitamin C and the RETININ Retinal 0.1% resurfacing cream, which you’ll need for your trial.

 

 

How it’ll work:

Step #1: Select your routine.

Here is mine as an example.

Make sure your routine is suited to your skin type – don’t be shy to customise!

Step #2: Kick-off is..

Friday, 8 June 2020 and the duration is 30 days.

 

Step #3: Define your goals.

Mine is as follows:

Explore the complete experience of retinal vs retinoic acid.

Improvement of my pigmentation?

Improvement of skin texture and resiliency?

I am keeping my goals realistic since it usually takes at least 8 weeks before you see real results.

 

Step #4: Keeping track.

Photographs are the best way to keep track of your progress. I plan to take one beforehand and then once a week, same day, time and lighting.

Feel free to post photos and comments during the 4 weeks (+2 days☺) of your own journey.

 

Step #5: The big reveal of our results.

After four weeks, we will meet up here again for a final discussion to evaluate and compare our experiences.

 

Let’s get going!

PS: Remember to take pics of your progress! Before, During, and After.

    Hi Stella and Skoon Team, I am looking into moving over to a natural product and have tried one so far that I was not too excited about, yet I have heard great things about Skoon. I am looking at delving into an array of products from a new range hat is natural, organic and cruelty free which actually gives results. I have only just looked at changeling to a natural product range and am eager to see if it indeed lives up to the expectations of other chemically based Retinol serums (and other products) which I have used before. I would thus love to be able to take part in the trail for RETININ Retinal 0.1% resurfacing cream as I myself have been using Vitamin A products, Vitamin C products and an array of there products for my sensitive and hyper pigmentated skin. Even though it may be a few months down the line of when the details were posted, I would nonetheless like to test the product to see if I feel it lives up to the others. I have tried an array of highly ranked products but do feel I would prefer to change over to natural if there is indeed a product range that can live up tot he same/similar expectations and quality. I look forward t hearing from you. Kindest wishes, Angelique

    I’ve been using this product from March 2020 before lockdown, I haven’t seen any progress on my face except getting more skin complications. My skin became so dull, dark and more pimples I tried to put more moisturizer to clear the darkness but I was still there. Now I am stucked with a product.
