AM+/-PM: We recommend smoothing 2 pumps to clean dry skin. Apply every 1-3 days and as tolerated, gradually work up to use once daily. Use Quiet Achiever after applying LBRx serums, but before Game Changer. Finish with LBRx moisturiser for added hydration.
We recommend applying our Superstar SPF 50+ Face and Body Sunscreen during the day for high sun protection. Quiet Achiever contains naturally occurring Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHAs). All AHAs may temporarily increase your skin’s sensitivity to sunburn. So when using these, always use sun protection and SPF sunscreen as appropriate. this should be continued for at least 2 weeks after AHA use.
Not suitable for very sensitive or reactive skin. Avoid the eye area.
AHAs can cause an initial ‘purge’ for those who are prone to breakouts. Mild tingling, redness and/or flaking may occur. Use with caution in combination with other actives from elsewhere or strong retinoids such as tretinoin as effects can be additive and cause skin sensitivity.
For more resilient skin, use Quiet Achiever with Dream Team for an intensive exfoliation regime.
It is good to start this product gradually. Please refer to our FAQ section for more information.
Those wanting a more conservative and gentle exfoliation regime are advised to consider applying Quiet Achiever twice a week – say on Monday and Thursday.
AHAs deliver an exfoliation effect and, due to the early skin response, some mild tingling, redness, flaking, or breakouts (known as purging) may occur. These are more likely in those with sensitive skin or who are prone to breakouts. If this occurs, temporarily cease using the product and please refer to our FAQ section for instructions on how to best manage skin responses.
In some people, using products containing Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (as in Quiet Achiever) with those containing Retinol (eg Dream Team) or Vitamin C (eg Next Level, Bright Star) in any combination can increase the chance of skin response. As a tip, we suggest that if using combinations of these you could initially apply these at different times of the day or apply them on alternate days – and increase only as tolerated. For example, apply Quiet Achiever in the morning and Dream Team at night.
If combining Dream Team and Quiet Achiever, we recommend you start by initially applying them at different times of the day and only increase as tolerated – eg. Quiet Achiever in AM and Dream Team in PM.
