I have sensitive skin. What should I expect after application of Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher?
The Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher has been thoroughly tested on individuals of all skin types, ranging from normal to sensitive. There was no evidence of allergic response or extreme skin irritation. However, we recognize that no testing program can guarantee that all individuals who use this product will not react.

How long has Artistry been developing the Intensive Skincare
Advanced skin refinisher?
Technology research began in 2013, with full-scale development completed in 17 months.

How does the Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher compare to the Artistry Time Defiance™ skin refinishing lotion?
Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher provides our most comprehensive instant and long-lasting textural benefits in an ultra-light, velvety soft, oil-free formula. It is four times more concentrated in functional ingredients than the Skin Refinishing Lotion, and continues to feature our patented Oat Extract for optimal epidermal skin cell renewal. Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher also contains numerous NEW technologies for oil control, hydration, redness reduction, and extensive pore refinement. Comparative clinical in vivo testing showed Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher to outperform competitive and existing technology in pore-filling, skin-smoothing, and light-diffusion properties.

Why do you recommend using a daytime sunscreen with use of the Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher?
Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher does not contain sunscreen. One of the most important aspects in any skincare regimen is the use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen product. We recommend using the Artistry Youth Xtend® daytime protective lotion or multi-protect with SPF 30 to help prevent skin exposure to the damaging UV rays.

How close to the eyes can you apply Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher?
It should not be applied directly in the eye area, or on the eyelids. If one gets the product into the eye, it should be rinsed out immediately.

What is the correct order of use for this product?
The product should be used twice daily, morning and evening after cleansing and toning.

Will use of Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher in a different order of use affect the product efficacy?
The ideal order of use for the Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher is during the infuse step, after prep (cleansing and/or toning the skin); followed by Nourish, with your daytime sunscreen or optional nighttime moisturizer. This regimen was followed during clinical and safety testing. If the Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher is used as the final step in a skincare regimen, the immediate benefits – including hydration, smoothness, softness, visible pore minimization, and shine control – will still be achieved.

Is Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher intended for a specific skin type?
Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher was designed and clinically tested on ALL skin types, ranging from combination/oily to dry or sensitive.

What is the targeted age group for this product?
The Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher was developed for individuals 20 years and older, although age is not the determining factor for this product’s use. Younger consumers interested in minimizing the appearance of pores, surface roughness, imperfections, uneven skin tone, and oiliness will greatly benefit from using this product. Consumers experiencing the signs of aging such as redness, dullness, and visibly enlarged pores will also benefit from using this product.

What are the technologies used in the Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher formula?
Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher features technologies designed around holistically improving the skin’s texture by delivering strategic ingredients to areas ranging from the skin’s surface (stratum corneum) to the targeted dermal layers rooted by the sebaceous glands. These technologies are chosen to work on each of the five factors that affect skin texture and the appearance of enlarged pores.

  1. On the surface - For conditioning of the outermost surface, Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher includes micro-fine light-diffusing particles and elastomers which “flexibly”; fill into pores, while providing sustained absorption of excess oil. Instantly upon application, a visible and tactile improvement in skin texture is achieved. This provides the instant “WOW”; look and feel.
  2. Within the surface - Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher provides patented gentle, non-acid exfoliation of dead skin surface cells to unveil a smoother, younger-looking complexion by assisting the skin’s natural epidermal renewal process.
  3. In the wall lining - Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher incorporates lentil seed extract, which helps reduce pore distortion. This distortion is a novel discovery in skin health, associated with enlarged pore walls relative to the surrounding tissue, which is further perceived as a visible “hollowing”; effect of pores with aging. Lentil seed extract was clinically tested at the concentration used in Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher to reduce the visible appearance of pores by 62% in four weeks.
  4. At the core of the pore - Visible pores on the face are funnel-like structures (known as the infundibular region of the pilosebaceous unit) that are rooted by oil-producing glands (sebaceous glands). Dermatological research indicates that excessive oil (sebum) production is directly associated with enlarged pores. Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher features Java tea extract – the “hero”; ingredient in the Refinishing Complex – which was clinically tested to suppress excess sebum while significantly reducing visible pore size and imperfections.
  5. Outside the pore - Dermatological literature indicates that photoaging weakens the tissue surrounding pores leading to visible slackening and dilation. Pores become elongated and shift in shape and structure from circular cylindrical structures to elliptical structures. Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher includes numerous ingredients and extracts [Optical Diffusers, NMF Sugars, Oat Extract, Star Fruit Leaf Extract, Lentil Seed Extract, and Java Tea Extract] to further help support the dermal tissue to help reduce visible pore area.

How many patents are associated with the Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher?
The formulation contains technology associated with three granted patents and three provisional patents (pending).

How quickly will I see a difference in my skin?
The Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher was clinically tested to IMMEDIATELY provide significant improvement in the appearance of pore size, surface smoothness, skin tone, hydration, and oil control. Excessive oiliness is controlled all day (for eight hours). In 24 hours, concentrated botanicals are delivered deep into the surface layers of the skin, where they are needed most. After two weeks of use, imperfections are minimized and an overall more youthful, radiant look of the skin is achieved. With extended use (six weeks), visible improvements continue to increase with more dramatic reductions in the appearance of pore size, imperfections, roughness, and oil production via clinical testing.

How long will the benefits of a treatment of Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher last?
The benefits of Artistry® Intensive Skincare Advanced Skin Refinisher will last with continued use of the product, and the use of one’s regular skincare regimen to help maintain results. As with any skincare regimen, results are dependent upon exposure to the sun, free radicals, and damaging environmental aggressors.
