 REJUV SETS: What is it, the good, the bad, and things you need to know before using morena filipina blog

Over the last two years, Rejuv sets have become immensely popular in the Philippines. I believe one of the reasons why these products boomed is because of social media and the fact that it brought the concept and importance of having a skin care system to the mass market, and made an entire skin care line ridiculously affordable. Before, using an entire skin care line and experiencing its advantages can only be afforded by the rich and middle class, but with Rejuv sets, for as low as P350, you get a day to night skin care range that can fit easily in your pocket and your budget.

Today, let's dive deeper into this massively popular skin care trend and products; let's examine the good, the bad, and talk about the things you need to know before using Rejuvenating sets aka REJUV SETS.


REJUV SETS: What is it, the good, the bad, and things you need to know before using morena filipina blog

WHAT IS A REJUVENATING SET?

A rejuvenating set is a skin care set comprised of a soap (facial cleanser), toner, day cream with SPF, and night cream with peeling properties. As the name implies, it is meant to rejuvenate or renew the skin by assisting or accelerating its exfoliation process.

All rejuvenating sets have peeling properties, which explains why almost all have anti- acne and whitening benefits (these are also two of the most popular skin care concerns of Filipinos). The active ingredients that make Rejuv sets effective are a combination of either one or more of the following: AHA, BHA, Hydroquinone, and Tretinoin.

Rejuevenating sets generally feature four products, which represent the four pillars of a modern basic skin care routine: cleanser, tone, protect/moisturize, moisturize/treat.

The price of a rejuvenating set in the Philippines ranges between P350 to P600.00. One reason why Rejuv sets are very affordable is the standard size of each product are generally 10g for the creams, 50-60ml for the toners, and 100-150g for the soap. Another is most sets are OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturing) products, products that are already formulated and available to be private labeled by brands.

Here are some of the popular and up and coming rejuvenating sets in the Philippines:

- Ryx Skincerity

- Skin Magical

- Brilliant Skin

- Fairy Skin

- Prestige

- Skinfinite Beauty

- Hello Glow

- Niks Skin


REJUVENATING SETS: THE GOOD

The advantage of using a single skin care range is one gets to experience its full benefits plus the whole work is cut out for you: there's less need to experiment with other products and risk your skin in the process and each product is designed to work synergistically with each other to deliver, boost, retain, and sustain the promised benefits in your skin. Skin care sets and systems, aside from increasing your chances of getting good skin, save you time and money as well. 

Skin care systems and sets used to be exclusive to those who can afford, but when Rejuv sets came out, it gave more people the chance to experience the benefits of using a full range at a very affordable price; this is what I love about the concept: it made the possibility of having good skin more accessible for everyone. A lot of Rejuv users have experienced favorable results that's why it became immensely popular in just a short span of time.

Almost all Rejuvenating Set brands follow the reselling model, which is one of the primary reasons why it got so popular--it's one of the easiest and fastest ways to generate income because imagine having a fleet of sellers or even a community selling and marketing for you; it will really accelerate your brand faster and bring in more sales than you expect! Rejuv set brands also require a low investment, usually starting at P2000, to become a reseller and this is another thing that I like about the industry in general: it encourages Filipinos to be more entrepreneurial and  self- sufficient.


REJUVENATING SETS: THE BAD

Of course there's always the other side of the story. Rejuv sets have its fair share of controversies too.

FDA has been diligently issuing memos and circulars regarding certain rejuvenating sets and products that are not FDA- approved and found to contain high concentrations of Tretinoin and Hydroquinone, two potent anti- acne products that are normally prescribed by dermatologists and not really recommended for consumer use. There are retail skin care brands that use Tretinoin and Hydroquinone as the main actives, but they come in varying concentrations to suit a variety of skin types plus they're transparent with the volume of actives used while most rejuv sets in the past (and even today) are not transparent with their active ingredients list, some still contain high concentrations of Tretinoin and Hydroquinone, and most have a one-size-fits-all formula. Moreover, rejuv sets encouraged a risky habit of self- medication even for severe skin problems: some users who have had favorable results would recommend rejuv sets by default for almost any skin problem without considering factors; with the attractive pricing and package, seekers would often turn to rejuv sets first than a derma to fix their skin problems; sometimes, this doesn't end well.

If there are those who got good skin out of usage, a lot have experienced the opposite; some people who have no breakouts at all started breaking out, pimples got worse, skin felt really dry, and skin underwent intense peeling, and got really red and sensitive.

Because of these, a lot of people have divided opinions on rejuv sets: some are completely against it, others love it, and others are still willing to try.


REJUVENATING SETS: DOs

Before trying out a rejuv set, keep these tips in mind:

1. Be picky with the brand. Don't just go for the cheapest; go for the established rejuvenating companies only.

2. Conduct a patch test first before using on the entire face.

3. Rejuv sets can typically last a month. After this period, rest your skin for a month and resume with your normal routine or switch to milder rejuv sets if you need maintenance.

4. Go for brands that are transparent with their ingredients list.

5. Always wear SPF, at least 30, when using rejuv sets.


REJUVENATING SETS: DONTs

1. Do not mix and match rejuv sets with other products because skin may be sensitive when using rejuvenating sets.

2. Avoid Retinol when using rejuvenating sets.

3. Do not use if pregnant or lactating, unless tagged as mild and safe to use.

That's all for today! I hope you learned something new, most especially if you are researching about rejuvenating sets in the Philippines.
