In the morning after cleansing. Use fingertips to apply 4-5 drops of Phloretin CF to face, neck and chest

Follow with Discoloration Defense Serum, use fingertips to apply 3-5 drops to face, neck and chest

Follow with your regular moisturiser, then apply Advanced Brightening UV Defense SPF, avoiding eye area

Note: Whilst we recommend using a sunscreen every day, this is particularly import when using retinol products at night. Retinol increases the photo-sensitivity of the skin so it’s essential to help protect your skin by using a broad-spectrum SPF in the day.


If you have never used retinol products, we would recommend beginning use two evenings a week, then gradually increase frequency to every other night, and finally once an evening as tolerated.

CAUTION: When using Retinol 0.3 and Discoloration Defense Serum we recommend allowing a 3 week acclimatisation period before introducing Discoloration Defense Serum as part of your nightly regimen. Once skin is accustomed to retinol, alternate use of Retinol 0.3 with Discoloration Defense Serum. Do not apply Discoloration Defense Serum or broken or irritated skin.

Evening Routine - without Retinol 0.3

After cleansing, use fingertips to apply 3-5 drops of Discoloration Defense Serum to face, neck and chest

Follow with a moisturiser if required

Evening Routine - with Retinol 0.3

Twice weekly at night, apply a pea sized amount of Retinol 0.3 to a clean dry face. Wait 30 minutes before applying other products, this will allow time for the retinol to absorb. Follow with a moisturiser if required.
