Ditch the skincare routine

Let’s face it, a skincare routine can feel more like a chore, going through the motions every day without a sense of purpose... not exactly inspiring! That’s why Retreatment Botanics instead encourages us to create a daily skincare ritual. A daily ritual reminds us to have intention for our skin and self-care, guiding us to relax our emotions, surrender our stress, inspire our spirit and love & appreciate our bodies. Taking a little time every day to nurture our self, helps us to stay centred and calm, with more joy to share with others and, importantly, for ourselves.


The art of creating your skincare ritual
As you begin your skincare ritual, find a moment to take a few deep breaths while applying your products. Relax your facial muscles while massaging the product in small, upward, gentle circular motions and bask in the pure essential oil aromas that evoke the sensory journey of a Day Spa Treatment. Continue your deep, restorative breaths... Inhale slowly through your nose, then exhale deeply while visualising mental & physical tension melting away. 


Daily Ritual

Step 1. Deeply cleanse the skin, while gently removing impurities and surface pollution. Choose from the following two cleansers:

Radiance Cream Cleanser - Normal to dry, dehydrated, and mature skin


Retreatment Botanics Face SerumRetreatment Botanics Face Serum

Step 2. Replenish your skin with a serum, while targeting hyperpigmentation, sunspots, blemishes, uneven skin tone and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles:

  • Kakadu Brightening Serum (Intensive vitamin C) - All skin types, including oily, combination, and dehydrated/mature skin.
  • Restore Serum (Antioxidant-rich) - Normal to dry/dehydrated and mature skin. 

Many customers LOVE to layer both of these serums! Kakadu first.

Step 3. Nourish your eyes to visibly firm, aid circulation and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles revealing fresh, timeless eyes:

  • Firming Eye Contour Cream - Perfect for all skin types, even if you have oily skin, it’s beneficial to use an eye cream as the eye area does not produce its own natural oils.


Step 4. Moisturise. Hydrate your skin to promote elasticity and visibly smooth fine lines and wrinkles, while protecting it against environmental damage.


Weekly Ritual

Supercharge your results and indulge your skin to an at-home facial with these weekly steps (1-2 times per week). We suggest choosing a favourite day, such as Self-Care Sunday, to include these powerful steps into your ritual. Your skin will feel like it’s just visited the spa. 

Set the space

Restore calm and tranquility in your surroundings by diffusing a 100% pure essential oil in your oil burner or diffuser. Allow yourself to fall into a deep state of blissful surrender. 

Resurface and Renew

After cleansing, use your polish to dissolve dull surface build-up and draw out excess dirt, oil, and impurities to reveal a soft, smooth, luminous complexion.

After polishing, pamper your skin with a nutrient-rich masque to visibly brighten and renew the skin, while evoking the Day Spa senses. The masque clears, smoothes and prepares your skin for maximum penetration of all your other products. Follow this step with your serum and moisturiser.

If you’re seeking a skincare ritual that provides more intensive skin benefits and fast tracks results, this range of products has been created to layer and compliment each other perfectly. We hope you truly enjoy this Spa Facial experience.
