The key to meeting your skin goals lies in choosing the right line-up of products that address your skin concerns. Amongst this product line-up are corrective serums; think: Retinol, Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid. Each are powered to offer unique benefits to the skin. 

With so many formulations to choose from, you may be stuck tossing up which corrective serum is right for you. So, to help, we’ve leaned on our founder, Dr. Geoffrey Heber to tell us what we need to know about a few of our best-selling corrective serums - and how to find a suitable one for you.

Skin Concern: Premature Skin Ageing

Rejuvenate and refine the appearance of your skin with Ultra A Perfecting Serum. This one is formulated with Vitamin A (Retinol) to visibly plump and smooth fine lines and wrinkles for a radiant and youthful-looking complexion. 

How to best apply this serum? After your evening double cleanse, apply to the skin before following with your favourite moisturiser. If you’re new to retinol, we recommend starting with Ultra A Perfecting Serum Mild. Apply it in the evening on alternative days for 2-4 weeks, gradually building tolerance to use daily.

Skin Concern: Dryness and Dehydration

Dramatically increase your skins hydration levels with Ultra B² Hydrating Serum. This formula is powered by three different forms of Hyaluronic Acid and our iconic B² technology (Vitamin B3 and Provitamin B5) to provide immediate and lasting hydration for all skin types.

Apply 2-3 pumps of this serum to freshly cleansed skin in the morning and evening for the ultimate plump and dewy complexion. 

Skin Concern: Dullness and Loss Of Firmness 

Achieve revitalised and bouncy skin with Ultra C Firming Serum. Powered by pure Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid) and enhanced stabilising technology, this serum supports skin elasticity while firming and smoothing the skin for a youthful appearance. 

This serum is best applied in the morning on cleansed skin before your daily moisturiser and sunscreen. We recommend applying it on alternative mornings and building tolerance to use daily. 

Skin Concern: Blemishes and Congestion

Ultra Clear Treatment Lotion is a triple-action treatment serum that helps decongest and visibly improve skin affected by blemishes. It’s powered by Salicylic Acid (BHA) & Mandelic Acid (AHA) to reduce congestion by removing excess surface oil and dead skin cells. Supported by ingredients to help soothe skin, you’ll feel deeply clarified and perfectly balanced.

We recommend this serum be applied in the morning on alternate days, gradually building tolerance to use daily. Pair it with our Ultra Clear range to target congestion and reduce future blemishes.

Skin Concern: Sensitivity and Redness

Calm and soothe your skin with Ultra R.E.D Corrective Serum. Our unique formula features a powerful complex of calming antioxidants and hydrating ingredients to visibly reduce the effects of environmental aggressors & comfort stressed skin.
