Retexturing Activator

30 ml
  • This oil-free serum is formulated to simultaneously exfoliate and replenish moisture in the skin for a smooth
  • radiant complexion.


This innovative exfoliating and replenishing serum has been clinically tested to surpass the resurfacing results of a daily 20% glycolic acid treatment, whilst helping to reinforce the skin’s barrier for healthier, more radiant looking skin.

  • Bi-functional exfoliation and hydration
  • Diminishes the appearance of surface lines and smooths skin
  • Increases the look of overall radiance
  • Boosts moisture levels
  • Ideal for all skin types

Retexturing Activator exfoliates and hydrates with Refined Urea Complex, Kombuchka (kombucha + black tea ferment) and Hyaluronic Acid. The skin’s natural desquamation is stimulated to create a noticably smoother looking, softer feeling surface texture and healthier looking skin.

I've been using this product for about 2 years now, as recommended by my facialist. And I love it - I actually enjoy putting it on every evening before bed. A tiny amount goes along way - and the skin feels clean and supple come morning.

Customer Reviews

Retexturing Activator is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So moisturising I bought this about a month ago and at first, it was mildly irritating because my skin was in such a bad way, also I think I was using too much. However, as the weeks went buy it stopped tingling. Now it has cleared already so many of my acne scars. It took about a week to clear the ones and it faded a substantial amount of old ones. You can wear this under makeup without needing to put a moisturiser on top if you don't have really dry skin. It certainly does a fantastic job of exfoliating.
