What To Expect

What You’ll See

Advanced rejuvenation for skin acclimated to
Exfol-A™ and further refinement in skin tone and texture for resistant acne cases. Increased firmness and lift, peeling away of impactions, smoother texture, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, more consistent tone. Benefits can be seen in less than two weeks. 

What You’ll Feel

Slight peeling or flaking and tingling sensation as skin acclimates is normal and indicates the product is working. If excessive drying, redness or peeling occurs during the first two or three weeks, skip treatment for a day or two, then restart slowly. 

What You Should Know

If skin shows no reaction, increase usage to twice daily, or move up to the next level of Vivant’s vitamin A therapy. You should experience some light peeling every week.

How To Use

Regimen Step: Three

Use following cleansing and toning steps, when skin is primed for optimum product absorption.  

Frequency: Up to twice daily - AM and/or PM. Begin usage every other day and gradually increase to daily application. (See skin type considerations below for more specifics.)

Method: Apply an even layer over the entire face (no spot treating). Allow serum to dry briefly before applying additional products or makeup to skin. 

Considerations:

Normal or Combination Skin

Start using Exfol-A™ Forté every other night for the first week to ten days, then gradually increase to twice daily. 


Sensitive Skin, Arid or Dry Winter Climate Conditions

Begin with one application of Exfol-A™ Forté every third night through the second week. Increase to every other night for a further week, and nightly thereafter. Eventually, you may be able to use the program up to twice daily. 


Oily Skin or Hot Tropical Climate Conditions

Because your natural oil flow creates a film that slows the effects of the Vitamin A, the program can be stepped up more quickly. You may be able to start immediately using the serum once a day. As skin acclimates, begin applying Exfol-A™ Forté twice daily. 

Pro tips: 

Minimize sun exposure while using this product and apply sunscreen daily. 


Best for skin already acclimated to Exfol-A™.

I can 100% vouch for this, as it fades dark spots extremely quickly. I’ve used this product for many years now and it lasts me quite a long time since I use it as only a spot treatment. However, for those with sensitive skin it definitely might burn a little, but usually when I experience any sort of burning I’ll apply high concentrated vitamin E or my moisturizer before this product.
