Why do I need a concentrate in my ritual?
Our AHA Concentrate is designed to keep your complexion clear, refine your pores to visibly minimise the size of them, speed up your skin cell turnover to bring the fresh, youthful skin to the surface & boost the efficacy of your other skincare products.
When do I apply the AHA concentrate?
To receive maximum benefits of this liquid pore-refiner, we recommend applying it in the AM and PM, just after cleansing (and exfoliating) your skin. To see our full product layering guide click here.
How do I use it?
Apply 4-5 drops to your palms and press gently into your skin. There’s no need to wash it off, simply apply and leave on. Follow with your favourite Retreatment Botanics serum and moisturiser.
What's the difference between a concentrate and a toner?
A concentrate is formulated with an abundance of highly active, hydrating ingredients to target multiple skin concerns and deliver age-defying, transformative results to the skin. PLUS, it has the added benefit of prepping your skin so that your skincare is better absorbed and more effective. Many traditional toners have an alcohol base which can strip your skin of its natural oils, and has a more basic function of removing residue that may be leftover after cleansing.
Is the Ageless AHA Glow Concentrate suitable for all skin types?
Yes! As with all Retreatment Botanics products, we formulated this concentrate with all skin types (including sensitive) in mind. As sensitive skin may vary, we do recommend doing a patch test first.
Do I apply this around my eyes?
Please avoid the eye area when applying our AHA Concentrate. Instead, nurture the delicate skin around your eyes with our Firming Eye Contour Cream - it provides all the hydration & nutrients that your eyes need to feel and look renewed.

“I've noticed the fine bumps under my skin have gone & the pores on my chin look so much smaller!”
I have sensitive skin which is prone to enlarged pores, redness and rosacea and the AHA glow concentrate helps with all of these issues. I've almost finished my first bottle and have re-ordered another. I use it twice a day after a thorough cleanse with the gentle cream cleanser in this range.
Love RB products. The Glow concentrate feels so fresh on the skin and easy to use but need to be careful too much doesn’t come out. My skin looks visibly better but still have a few bumps and pigmentation. I have almost finished one bottle and will continue using in hope my skin will continue to improve.
This is amazing on my skin. I love using this and certainly makes your skin feel soft and smooth and gives it a shine it never had. It is light, delicate and has a wonderful scent. I use this twice a day as part of my routine and would not go without it now.
Have only just purchased this, but love the feel of my skin when applied.
I don't users toners as they have a tendency to cause breakouts, but this lovely.
When + how to use
Apply 4-5 drops of this ultra-lightweight concentrate to freshly-cleansed skin daily, AM + PM. There’s no need to wash it off, simply apply and leave on. Follow with your favourite Retreatment Botanics serum and moisturiser.
Tip: Savor every drop by gently pressing the liquid directly onto the skin from your clean palms, leaving the cotton pad behind (better for the environment too!)
