1

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.

The Duo is recyclable from our aluminum tubes all the way to our boxes.

We don’t recommend using Faded in the same routine as other exfoliating AHAs, BHAs, retinols, and Tretinoin!

Faded contains tranexamic acid, which has been clinically-proven to help manage melasma!

Faded gets its smell from Glutathione, an ingredient that is really effective at reducing the appearance of discoloration in weeks. Glutathione has a cysteine chain that causes it to have a sulfur like smell.

Faded is a treatment serum and has a gel-like consistency. This means it should be used after cleansing and toning, and before moisturizing. It should be used after thinner serums and treatments.

You can either spot-treat or use Faded all over your face it's up to you!

Yes, Faded is safe for pregnant woman, but we recommend consulting with your doctor.

Like Butter is not gluten-free. Like Butter contains colloidal oatmeal.

Everyone’s skin is different, but we included only non-comodogenic oils and ingredients. We always recommend that you patch test and work up slowly to regular use whenever trying a new product to see how your skin adjusts and reacts!

Like Butter can be used either as a face mask, or as a moisturizer. If using Like Butter as a face mask, we recommend slathering it on after cleansing, and before any treatments, serums, and moisturizer. If using Like Butter as a moisturizer, it’s best to apply it after all treatments and serums, in a thin layer on the skin.

Both Faded & Like Butter have a shelf like of 9 months opened & 18 months unopened!

“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.”

I see fading, but don't love the smell

I have seen fading of spots on face, hand and forearm and I'm really pleased with a product that seems designed for women of color. I've only been using the product for a month so will keep monitoring, but the smell is really funky. I know you want to keep ingredients simple and I salute that but I have to use another cream to mask the smell.

Spots disappeared

I love faded! I got it because I can’t use retinol or hydra quinine which are my dependable go tops. But not anymore faded made my dark spots disappear in about 2 weeks. The smell is the greatest, but who cares this stuff WORKS!! Buy it now!

The Product I’ve Always Wanted

I was left so insecure and hopeless about my skin because it never looked the way I wanted let alone manageable, but using Faded has helped my skin out in so many ways, I barely break out, most of my stubborn spots are faded. It’s literally magic in a tube, totally recommend.

Did it hurt when you fell from heaven???

Overall, I’ve loved every product! I’ve tried the faded serum, the like butter mask, and the new salve! 10/10 experience so far with every time, down to the packaging, the product itself and the results! If I had one improvement, I would say work on the compact that the salve comes in, the tin itself moves around. Other than that, great!
