I’ve just started using Skinesis® products. How long will it be before I see a difference?

This varies between each product, so please see the respective packaging for directions on how much to use.

In what order should I apply my products?

As a general rule, after cleansing apply from thinnest to thickest texture: starting with skin prep (such as our Liquid Facial Resurfacer), then eye cream, your serum/treatment and finally, elixir and/or moisturiser. Instructions are given on our packaging and on each product page on the website under the “HOW TO” section.

The result is anti-ageing, skin-perfecting products delivered with sophisticated textures, enhanced with powerful botanical oils and natural fragrances.

I am new to Skinesis®, how should I introduce my skin to your products?

Due to the concentrated and active nature of our ingredients it is best to start slowly. Follow directions on each product, but start with once or twice a week application and build up to daily use if you are concerned.

My skin appears a little red after using some of your products, is this normal?

Yes, it can be. We use highly efficacious, cosmeceutical ingredients so a pink flush to the skin can be expected as it indicates that the product is taking effect. However, if it becomes uncomfortable, persistent or worsens discontinue use immediately.

Are your products suitable for sensitive skin?

Our products are carefully formulated to suit the needs of our clients who show a wide range of skin concerns, including sensitivity. If you are at all concerned, we recommend you carry out a patch test prior to using any new product. Apply a small amount of product behind the ear for up to three days: should you experience any redness, irritation or discomfort during his period, then we would not recommend use of that particular product.

What is the shelf life of your products?

You can safely use Sarah Chapman Skinesis® products within two years of purchase date. Once opened please refer to the packaging for details of PAO (period after opening date). This is indicated by a symbol of an open jar with the relevant number of months within, such as ‘12M’.

Do any of your products contain SPF?

YYes, Dynamic Defence SPF15, Dynamic Defence Concentrate SPF15 and Skin Insurance SPF30. You can view these products here

I am using a moisturiser so why do I need a treatment/serum/booster?

Serums, treatments or boosters target skin concerns that your moisturiser does not. They are highly active, complex products that address anti-aging concerns in several ways. These products are formulated to have speedy absorption into the skin. They are often water-based or of a lower molecular weight than a cream in order to carry high levels of effective active ingredient deeper in to the skin. Find the right products for your concerns by using our skin diagnostic tool..

After using Skinesis® products my skin feels tight/tingly – is that normal?

Due to the active nature of our products and high amounts of vitamin A, you may experience a tingling or tightening sensation due to the lifting effect of our products. This should be just temporary. However, if you begin to feel discomfort, we recommend you stop using the product until your skin has returned to normal, then slowly try re-introducing the product again.

What should I do if your product is not suitable for me?
