SKOON. is test-driving Vitamin A
Like to join us for the trip?
by Stella Ciolli on Jun 12, 2020
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
Really interested in seeing the results! Wishing you the best!
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.
