Good skin is something we all covet. But unlike the ease of booking in for the perfect bouncy blow dry, achieving a flawless complexion isn’t simple. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to skincare but Australian brand Viviology is here to help you achieve the best version of your skin with products that are easy to use and won’t break the bank.
Salon HER started stocking Viviology skin in July after our founder, Michael Kelly, had the opportunity to test out the range. We also had the pleasure of officially welcoming Viviology into the salon with a press event, hosting journalists, editors and influencers in our space for mini facials and of course, a signature Salon HER blow dry.
“I love this brand because it’s accessible, inclusive and results driven,” says Michael Kelly of the decision to stock the range in-salon. “The most expensive product of the range is priced at $59 and it’s a cosmeceutical range, which is where great skincare is truly at.”
But what makes it so good? Created by visionary dermal therapist James Vivian, Viviology is all about results-driven skincare. Vivian’s idea was to create a confusion-free cosmeceutical skincare line which cuts the bullshit and makes it simple for all of us to achieve flawless skin.
Viviology is all about delivering “everything you need to start your skincare journey and nothing you don’t” and so Vivian carefully curated a line of essentials that has everything you need to take care of your skin.
Here’s a guide to the six-step Viviology routine:
Step one: Viviology Gentle Foaming Cleanser
Cleanse your face with the Viviology Gentle Foaming Cleanser. Effectively remove makeup, dirt, oil and impurities so you’re ready for step two…
Step two: Viviology Liquid Exfoliant
Exfoliating is the secret to good skin. This is a gentle yet active AHA / PHA complex which you will swipe on 2-3 evenings a week to exfoliate the skin.
Step three: Viviology Ceramide Moisturiser
A universal moisturiser that you can use any time, anywhere to hydrate and protect the skin.
Step four: Viviology Retinol Serum 0.3%
Retinol is for those who want to take their skincare to the next level. Retinol improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of fine lines, giving you a brighter complexion. Go slowly with retinol—it encourages cell turnover (which is why you glow!) but it needs to be introduced slowly (at night) and you need to up your SPF in the daytime when using it.
Step five: Viviology Niacinamide + HA Serum
This serum can be used morning or night to keep skin calm and healthy. It has three hyaluronic acids for deep hydration—use this instead of the Retinol Serum at night or after moisturising in the morning.
Step six: Viviology Vitamin C Serum
A few mornings a week, you might wish to switch out your Niacinamide + HA Serum for this Vitamin C one. Packed with potent Vitamin C and other powerful antioxidants, it helps to boost brightness.
