WHY WE LOVE IT

In oily skin, sebum is continuously pumping through the pore, creating a "sticky" environment on the skin's surface. Dead skin cells, dirt and pollution can easily clog the pore to cause breakouts and inflammation that lead to dark marks. This starts the "vicious cycle." Frequent, but gentle exfoliation is key for oily and combination skin to stay clear, healthy and luminous. Here's why we love THE PERFECTING SERUM...


STREAMLINES YOUR REGIMEN

This serum replaces 4 treatment products to effectively target all oily, combination and aging skin concerns in one complex formula. It works.

OIL-FREE & LUXURIOUS

We let you choose the type of moisture that is compatible with your skin and achieve a silky texture without pore-clogging oils or butters.

MADE JUST FOR YOU

It supports your skin's natural reparative function, and is clinically proven to deliver results on all skin shades.

ELIMINATES STRESS

No need to worry about whether a product is going to break you out or make you oilier. We've done the hard work for you.

HOW TO USE

Oily Skin  In the evening, massage 1-2 pumps onto clean, dry skin avoiding the eye area.

Combination Skin  In the evening, massage 1 pump onto clean, dry skin in areas prone to excess oil and congestion. Avoid the eye area.

All  Follow with moisturizer. Apply broad spectrum sunscreen daily. Do not use other resurfacing/retinoid products on the same night. If sensitivity occurs, reduce frequency until skin adjusts.

Pro Tip Use as a spot treatment on blemishes or stubborn dark marks during the day to accelerate results. Don't forget the sunscreen.

Just what the market needs

I have had breakout prone and sensitive skin my entire adult life. This amazing, game changing product controls oil, improves the condition of my skin and quickly addresses any breakouts. What I love most is that it’s not too harsh and the ingredients are clean! I also love the way the packaging looks great in my bathroom. A win win. Thank you Lalais.

Game changer…a MUST have product in your beauty regimen!

I have tried all of the best selling products for managing even tone and nothing is as gentle, yet effective, as Lalais. The product feels great when applying to the skin and does not cause one bit of irritation (and I have super sensitive skin). My face looks even, bright, and perfectly dewy, not oily, with the skin perfecting serum. I highly recommend and will make sure to never run out… a new, staple product!!!

THE PERFECTING SERUM FAQs

WHAT DOES THE PERFECTING SERUM DO? HOW DOES IT WORK?

THE PERFECTING SERUM is a unique chemical resurfacing treatment that breaks down the bonds between dead skin cells to gently and evenly exfoliate the outer layer of the skin. This removal of your skin's oily surface clears congestion, lifts dark marks, and smooths the texture for a brighter, more even, youthful complexion that glows.

It also allows effective penetration of our proprietary Oil Control (OCC3)™ complex and chosen actives to promote balance, improve all oily skin concerns, and prevent future imperfections.

CAN I USE THIS WHILE PREGNANT?

If pregnant or breastfeeding, we recommend consulting your physician before use.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT WHEN I BEGIN USING THE PERFECTING SERUM?

Consistency/Color A lightweight, fast-absorbing off-white lotion

Texture Silky and luxurious. Can be used as a spot treatment. 

Amount Needed A little goes a long way. Do not over apply.

Smell No added fragrance, there is a slight medicinal scent from the ingredients.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS FROM THE PERFECTING SERUM?

We are mindful that inflammation can trigger oil production and hyperpigmentation. Our formulas deliver maximum efficacy while minimizing irritation. THE PERFECTING SERUM is not accompanied by intense stinging or burning, but it is hard at work transforming your skin for the long term.  

Week 1 Skin calms and begins to acclimate
Week 2
 Improvement begins
Week 3
 Improvement underway

- Results and timing may vary by person and based on usage

HOW IS THE PERFECTING SERUM DIFFERENT THAN THE RETINOL RENEWAL?

THE PERFECTING SERUM is an exfoliating treatment focused on improving oily skin concerns on the surface of the skin. THE RETINOL RENEWAL accelerates cell turnover and works deep within the skin to keep the cells unblemished and healthy as they rise to the surface.

So, THE PERFECTING SERUM addresses the skin of today. THE RETINOL RENEWAL addresses the skin of tomorrow. When you use both serums, you can achieve even better results as your skin is nourished, treated, and corrected for improvement now and in the future.

CAN I USE THE PERFECTING SERUM WITH THE RETINOL RENEWAL?

While gentle, THE PERFECTING SERUM is a potent formula. We do not recommend using it with any other exfoliating or retinoid product on the same night. Once your skin acclimates, you can slowly introduce THE RETINOL RENEWAL on alternate nights for a comprehensive approach to caring for your oily or combination skin.

HOW IS THE PERFECTING SERUM MADE FOR OILY AND COMBINATION SKIN?

THE PERFECTING SERUM contains our exclusive Oil Control Complex (OCC3)™ that targets the enzyme in the skin that triggers excess oil production, 5-alpha reductase. Rather than mask the oil with mattifying ingredients, this serum addresses the root causes along with other actives, to correct and perfect at the cellular level. While these ingredients are beneficial to all skin, they are particularly important to balancing oily and combination skin.

CAN I USE THE PERFECTING SERUM IF I DON'T HAVE OILY SKIN?

Yes. Follow with ample moisturizer, particularly in areas where you tend to be dry.

HOW IS THE PERFECTING SERUM MADE FOR ALL SKIN TONES?

We don't just say it, we prove it. In every stage of formula development, the impact and efficacy on all skin tones is considered. That includes ingredient selection, delivery technology, formula composition, and clinical and consumer testing on every single Fitzpatrick skin type I - VI (representing skin tones) to confirm that LALAIS products work with visible results for all of those with oily and combination skin. This takes tremendous time and effort, and is evidenced by the quality and results of THE PERFECTING SERUM.
