To Use

To Use:

Massage pea-sized dollop over face, neck, chest + hands. Avoid mucosal (wet) areas of eyes, nostrils + mouth. Daytime: Follow with Armada Sun + Light Screen whether indoors or outdoors, and whether or not this product was applied on a given day.
IMPORTANT: Start using 2x-a-week only. Very slowly increase to 3x-a-week, then 1x-every- other-day, etc. until you achieve 2x-a-day usage (no earlier than week 8). DO NOT RUSH. See Application Frequency Guide on side panel of this box.

Therapy Notice: Some first-time users of Illuminants+ may experience an initial reaction of a slight redness or mild stinging. With correct use-slowly increasing application frequency, using hypoallergenic support products, and following all instructions carefully-this initial reaction quickly disappears. If the stinging and redness persists, stop use for one week, and restart therapy at the beginning, with 1x-a-week applications.

Sunburn Warning: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.


Before using any product, test a tiny amount of it on skin (we omit allergens, but you may be sensitive to an ingredient that isn't an allergen).

Introduce new products one at a time, with at least 3 days in between to make sure you are not allergic.

Do not store in extreme temperatures, or in direct sunlight.

Do not (re)introduce removed portions of product, water or other substances into product.

UV exposure from the sun increases the risk of skin cancer, premature skin aging and other skin damage. It is important to decrease UV exposure by limiting time in the sun, wearing protective clothing, and using sunscreen.

UV rays from the sun are made of UVB + UVA. It is important to protect against both UVB + UVA rays to prevent sunburn and other skin damage.

As with all things skin, consult your dermatologist.


For external use only on specified areas as directed.

Practice sun avoidance - particularly for children and the photosensitive, and especially between 10 A.M. - 2 P.M. (10:00-14:00) - as much as possible.

Stop use + consult your doctor in the unlikely event of discomfort or sensitivity.

If contact with eyes occurs, flush out with plenty of water.

Keep out of reach of children. While safe for its intended use, ingesting large amounts of this product - as unattended children may do - is potentially harmful. If large quantities of this product have been ingested, get medical help right away.
