Like Butter—To mask: Apply a thin, even layer onto cleansed, damp skin. Leave on for a minimum of 20 minutes then wipe off

To use as an overnight moisturizing mask: Apply a thin, even layer onto cleansed, damp skin. Leave on overnight then wipe off. Applying too much causes this mask to pill.

2

Faded—Apply a thin, even layer onto cleansed, dry skin before moisturizing. Gently massage into skin until serum has been absorbed. Start 1x a week and slowly work your way up to daily use. Use sun protection during the day, and moisturize well when using.

“I have been prescribed tons of products from the dermatologist and nothing worked. Then, I tried faded and like butter and everything has drastically improved. I’ve been using the duo for about a month and my skin is glowing.”

Gabrielle

“Love both of these products! Faded works SO well but without being too harsh.”

Adri

“I have struggled with cystic acne, scarring, discoloration, eczema, and skin so oily that it runs into my eyes since I was 12. Duo reminded me of what it was like to have clear, comfortable skin.”

My new go-to for acne, hyperpigmentation, and dry skin

I have combination skin - dry around my cheeks, oily t-zone - with some dehydration and hyperpigmentation. I've used this product for about two months now and there was somewhat of a learning curve for the first month. Faded is powerful, but can be drying which is why Like Butter is necessary. Like Butter is a thick cream (occlusive) that is good for locking in moisture, but not good to use as your main moisturizer if you have dry or dehydrated skin. If you have dry skin you have to make sure your skin is hydrated and moisturized with something like hyaluronic acid (a humectant, my go-to) or a water-based moisturizer. Like Butter makes my skin feel so fricken soft when I've successfully hydrated my skin. I also have eczema patches on my hands that I've been fighting for years (with petroleum and medicinal creams), and Like Butter has done good in fight it so far and kept my skin from cracking or being painful (though I am still dealing with it). My routine: on damp skin apply an essence with hyaluronic acid < faded (I use this every other day) < like butter on dry areas or all over. Overall, these two products are phenomenal and work for me. Faded has already improved my hyperpigmentation in the two months I've used it (this is hyperpigmentation I've been healing for about a year now), and I have not had any acne breakouts or pimples pop up. Like Butter is definitely the star for me - it takes my face to a whole new level of softness and hydration. Like I said before, there was a learning experience in the first month I was adjusting to these products, but I am able to get the most out of them now. I think the best part is that so little is needed (a pea size or less) for both of these products and I can see these tubes lasting for up to a year maybe. I've experimented with many great products from ethical companies - enjoyed them all - but I am in love with these products and the branding and everything.

Hi Bielma, Most hyperpigmentation takes up to 6 months to fade especially if it is due to hormonal or genetic reasons. Please email us at help@mytopicals.com to help you find a skincare routine that works for you! Best, Olamide

Love them both.

I’ve fortunately never had to deal with acne until COVID due to the masks. My skin overall is super sensitive, I also grew up with eczema. I only get the occasional flare up behind the knees or on my hands. Like butter does great for my dry spots/ flare ups while Faded has been a GOD SEND for the scars on my body I’ve had since my early eczema days. Scars I thought I’d never rid of. My face was a little too sensitive for faded when I originally ordered but now I’m re-ordering bc I think my face can handle it. I highly recommend it and I can’t wait to see the results :)

Disappointing

I have purchased the duo twice and have used them both everyday. I have yet to see a difference especially with my dark spots. I won’t be purchasing again.

Hi Bre, Thanks for your feedback! Everyone's skin is different, but most hyperpigmentation takes up to 6 months to fade especially if it is due to hormonal or genetic reasons. Please email us at help@mytopicals.com to help you find a skincare routine that works for you! Additionally if a spot is not fading, we recommend you see a physician because the spot may be caused by something that is not treatable with over the counter products. Best, Olamide
