How often should I use it?
One application is enough, preferably at the end of evening skin care.
Do the acids require a “grace period”? Is gentle tingling normal at the beginning?
Yes on both accounts. Depending on the skin’s tolerance for acids, in the early phase of using the cream a light tingling sensation can appear. If it’s very intense, you must immediately wash the product off the skin. However, if it’s light and just noticeable, it means you need to build up your tolerance for acids. At first, use the cream every third day. When the tingling stops, you can use it every other day, and after a couple of days you can move to everyday use.
How many percent of acids does the cream have?
Our proprietary composition of acids BEST+ gives the cream a concentration of 9%. Please note that it’s the total concentration of acids in the cream and does not mean that each acid has a 9% concentration.
What’s the cream’s exfoliating power? Will it be visible?
The cream has microexfoliating properties via the dissolution of bonds between the dead cells of epidermis. It’s a very gentle action - after some time of use, you will notice its effects, but no flaking will occur that could grab onto make-up or be visible to the eye.
What types of skin is the cream meant for?
The cream is appropriate for all skin types - in particular for those with oily skin, one with imperfections, discolorations, as well as for dry, matte and in need of glow restoration. In the case of sensitive skin, we recommend performing a test - apply a small amount of cream in an invisible spot, e.g. behind the ear, and wait 24 hours. If no undesired effects happen, you can use it as normal.
Can the cream be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding?
Yes. The concentration of acids in the cream falls within the guidelines considered by experts as perfectly safe to use during pregnancy. However, we recommend caution and performing an allergy test on the skin, as during and after pregnancy some cosmetics may cause unexpected and not seen previously reactions.
Can I use different cosmetics with acids at the same time?
Yes - unless they are high-potency professional-use cosmetics or treatments performed in a professional beauty salon. The cream is safe to use with our AHA, AHA - I like it! tonic and with Soft-touch skin serum with azeloglycine. It is worth noting that combining too many different types of acids can cause irritation. In case of doubts, consult a cosmetologist or dermatologist.
Can I use the cream together with my retinol/retinal/vitamin C treatment?
We discourage the use of both acids and retinol or retinal. For most skin types the exfoliating effect will be too strong. However, there are no contraindications for using Re-new moon with a vitamin C treatment, e.g. in the form of our Wake-up shot! serum. The acids in the cream act on different mechanisms, but they can be great penetration promotors for active ingredients in Wake-up shot!.
Raczej odradzamy jednoczesne stosowanie kosmetyków z kwasami w połączeniu z kuracją retinolem lub retinalem. Dla większości typów skóry będzie to zbyt silne działanie złuszczające. Jednak nie ma żadnych przeciwwskazań do stosowania kremu Re-new moon wraz z kuracją witaminą C, na przykład w postaci serum Wake-up shot! Zawarte w kremie kwasy działają na innych mechanizmach, ale mogą być znakomitymi promotorami przenikania składników aktywnych z Wake-up shot!
Can I use the cream before or after acid treatments in a beauty salon?
Of course - sometimes using a cream with acids beforehand is recommended by cosmetologists. It helps build the skin’s tolerance and thus prevent unwanted side effects of such treatments (including irritation and breaking of the skin, which can lead to discolorations).
What are the contraindications for using the Re-new moon cream?
The main contraindication is sensitivity to any of its ingredients. We also don’t recommend using it with open wounds (broken skin tissue) or during active viral or fungal infections.

When will I see the first effects?
The first effects of the cream should be visible after a couple to several days - it’s a particularly personal issue based on the skin’s individual predispositions. For some, a visible effect can occur very quickly, while others will need a couple extra days of treatment. However, there’s no need to worry - the BEST+ acids complex starts working from the first use!
