Step 1 – Contour Cleanser


The best cleansers are the ones that effectively remove oil and grime while maintaining your face’s moisture. That’s what the Contour Cleanser does—it lifts deep-seated dirt through mild exfoliation without drying your skin up.

FN TIP: Wash and lather with warm water to open your pores and let the product do its magic, then rinse with cold to close them and keep dirt from settling in again.

Step 2 – Primer Water


This cooling primer is heavy with moisture, but it doesn’t make your skin feel too slick or oily. In fact, while it’s technically a primer, it can also double as a gentle toner that keeps your face plump and hydrated even during dry summer months.


FN TIP: Don’t just apply this to your face. Keep the skin of your neck healthy by applying generous amounts before putting on makeup or even going to bed.

Step 3 – Fixer Cream


One thing you shouldn’t forget is to moisturize. After letting the Primer Water seep into your skin, apply the Fixer Cream to keep dewy for as long as 24 hours.


FN TIP: A little goes a long way! The product is a bit heavy, so if you have oily skin, don’t put too much to avoid breakouts!
