About This Set

This set includes: complete serum, novA oil and integrative serum

If you’re looking to step up your skincare, look no further than these high-potency, high-impact serums. Once you’ve introduced your cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen into your regimen – a serum will be your next step.

The most multifunctional serum on the market targeting pigmentation, wrinkles, acne and rosacea – there’s a reason it’s called the Complete Serum! An iconic wrinkle-defying hyaluronic acid based serum with powerful antioxidant and peptide technology which effortlessly lightens pigmentation, clarifies acne and soothes redness.

How to Use

Apply one pump of the antioxidant and peptide-rich Complete Serum morning and night to clean, still damp skin on the face, neck and décolletage. Wait thirty seconds for the serum to be absorbed before applying your moisturiser. Pay particular attention to those areas of the face developing fine lines and wrinkles. This is a hyaluronic acid-containing product which draws water into the skin so always seal off with a moisturising cream.

The only retinoid you will ever want to use again! Superior results to prescription retinoids but without the flaking, redness and irritation. Wrinkles, dullness and pigmentation don’t stand a chance with this advanced strength 100% active triple-fusion retinoid oil utilising the power of 4% Granactive Retinoid, trans-retinoic acid from rosehip oil and 1% bakuchiol leaving the skin smooth, supple and glowing from within. Suitable for retinoid newbies and those with rosacea or sensitive skin and can be used on the delicate under-eye skin, neck and decolletage.

How to Use

The first step in our Retinoid Star System. Apply one pump at night as the final step of your regimen. Rub your palms together to activate the botanical super-ingredients then gently press your warmed hands over the face, neck and décolletage. Using the heels of your hands, gently massage upwards to give a mini facial lymphatic drainage. Since this facial oil is 100% active, advanced strength Vitamin A, it is recommended that you phase it into your regimen slowly. Use twice a week for the first 2 weeks then alternate nights for a further 2 weeks then nightly. The NovA Oil turbocharges your night-time moisturizer but works beautifully as a stand-alone treatment too.

The ultra-restorative, fast-absorbing and lipid-replenishing facial oil that supports a healthy skin barrier and protects against environmental aggressors. A luxuriously sensorial oil which instantly nourishes, firms and refines the skin while boosting suppleness and radiance. Can be used as a daily moisturiser or layered over the Face Crème Originale for additional defence and treatment of dry skin.

How to Use

This nutrient-dense, luxurious facial oil rich in antioxidants, vitamins, phytonutrients and omegas is 100% active plant-based superfood for your skin. Use half a dropper morning and/or night. The Integrative Serum can be used on its own to replace your daily moisturizer or can be used following the Face Crème Originale for added hydration particularly during the winter months. Rub your palms together to activate the botanical super-ingredients and take a moment to create a scent-tent with your palms. Cup your hands over your face and allow yourself to inhale the intoxicating scent deeply for 3-5 full breaths. Gently press your warmed hands over the face, neck and décolletage until the oil has been entirely absorbed. Follow with sunscreen in the morning.

All our root4 products were inspired by real-life challenges I faced in-practice and finding a retinoid that actually performed and that was tolerated by even my patients with the most sensitive, rosacea-prone skin together with developing an antioxidant serum which also targeted wrinkles, acne and pigmentation were top of my list. These can be added to the most basic of regimens to level them up into dermatologist-approved, results-driven ‘blue-chip’ skincare.
