A couple of weeks ago, at the wonderful #CptBloggerMeet, read what the lovely Leana had to say about the event here we were given the most fantastic goodie bags, one of the many products in these goodies bags was a tiny blue vile, which looks like its jumped out of a medical cabinet. This is the Optiphi Refine-Foliant.
To make life easier, this is their website definition and instructions
Smooth Radiance Exfoliator
An active chemical exfoliant for smooth radiant skin, our triple advanced complex is designed to leave your skin looking toned, supple and refined.
Directions for Use:
Apply on face, neck & decollete.
Leave on for 5minutes, thereafter rinse well.
Avoid contact with eye
Now, the website doesn’t make mention of the little pro tips that the wonderful Optiphi reps told me (I love them, this was my second time meeting them!), so I’ll share my experience with you and the tips I picked up from the lovely reps!
I was told, once the bottle is open, there is enough for 2 applications; I felt like there was enough in the bottle for 3 applications but I smothered it on my face, and it felt like a watered down gel, and once that bottle is open you must use the refine-foliant within 7 days otherwise the active ingredients will not be as effective… They also told me to cleanse my face before applying the refine-foliant, which makes sense but its not on the instructions 😉 I left mine on for 10 minutes because I’m a rebel… I then jumped in the shower and when I got out I couldn’t stop touching my skin after applying my normal toner and moisturiser. I am obsessed and I know, I shouldn’t be touching my skin so much but I don’t care…. it’s so smooth!
There is something special about using high quality skin care products that give an instant result; Optiphi, as always has never disappointed me and I will be buying more of this lovely refine-foliant for a monthly skin treat. It retails between R520 – R6540 and is available at selected salons and spas.
Disclaimer: as stated above I did not buy this product, however it was a gift from an event I attended – this has not altered my view of the product in anyway.
