Q: How can i get a sample before i buy it? -Sonia
Q: Do you need a serum and moisturiser with Zo recovery cream -
Using the Overnight Peel first with AHA's and then adding the sleeping cream is an amazing combo. The AHA's (glycolic acid) does a great job at gently exfoliating the skin, lightening spots and reversing wrinkles. And the sleeping cream would give you the added hydration you need while you sleep and for repair.
Q: Do you apply serum before or after recovery cream -Lynda
Do you cleanse tone then Zo recovery cream then serum then moisturiser
The Zo website says to apply Zo Recovery cream to clean, dry skin. It contains retinol which is a potent ingredient. I would cleanse, tone and then apply the Recovery cream 3x per week – you won’t need anything over this… but you probably won’t want to use every night either because it can be irritating. I would use the serum/moisturizer on the other nights to give your skin a break from the retinol. Good luck! Rachel
Hi sonia. My question is can i mix my 1% tretinoin with the zo overnight recovery cream together?
Marisol, apply the tretinoin first and allow it to absorb, and then apply additional products. Personally I wouldn’t mix them. The tretinoin is a much stronger product so if you want it to work at its full strength you want to put that on first. rachel
