What drew me to Skin Editor Tre-Fact Revitalizing Essence ($29; provided by Beautibi, a great source for Taiwanese and Korean beauty) is that it purports to strengthen the skin barrier and that the brand specializes in post-procedure care. As a regular tretinoin user (yay Curology!) and frequent overexfoliator (boooo glycolic acid), treatments like Tre-Fact appeal to me.
When my moisture barrier is fine, Tre-Fact may seem like just another hydrating serum. But when it’s compromised–dull, bumpy, red, flaky–Tre-Fact comes to the rescue.
