Frequently Asked Questions

Waterless products are more potent, more hydrating, more stabilized and don't contain preservatives (since there's no water to feed the bad bacteria!) Waterless products like Karisma use oils instead of water as a base. These oils are full of vitamins and antioxidants that work to penetrate each layer of your skin more intensely. This helps to repair damaged skin, hydrate and revitalize your complexion and fortify the protective barriers on the skin which prevents further damage and slows down the aging process.

Follow these steps morning and evening to use the complete Karisma Skincare Collection:

1. Cleanse with Karisma Deep Cleansing Facial Oil. To remove makeup and deeply cleanse skin without damaging or stripping the skin barrier, apply a liberal amount onto moist face and neck. Gently scrub with a face cloth for several minutes allowing the cleanser to dissolve makeup and sunscreen and wash away surface impurities. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

  1. 2. Exfoliate with Karisma Face Polish. To exfoliate, remove dead skin, blackheads and blemishes, apply a dime-size amount to damp skin. Massage in a circular motion for several minutes avoiding the eye area. Rinse thoroughly with cool water. Our gentle polish can be used daily to purify and deep-clean skin without drying or damaging. Use twice a day if prone to clogged pores and blackheads.
  1. 3. Purify and hydrate with Karisma Quickie Honey Mask. To replenish and restore skin, apply a liberal amount over face and neck. Leave on for 5 minutes or longer, then remove with a cool, damp face cloth. This quick pick-me-up mask is perfect for every day to achieve a fresh-faced, dewy glow.
  1. 4. Brighten and tighten with Karisma Eye Believe Dual-Acting Eye Treatment. Use mornings for continuous hydration, tightening and illumination, and evenings for a deeply restorative and rejuvenating eye treatment. Place a pea-size amount on ring finger. Starting at the inner corner underneath the eye, apply small dots in a semi-circle up to brow bone.
  1. 5. Illuminate and Hydrate with Karisma Ultimate Face Oil. Use daily to hydrate and illuminate skin. Use Nightly for a restorative and deeply moisturizing treatment. Perfect as a primer for makeup application, or on top of cream moisturizers to seal and push nutrients into the skin. Apply several drops to hands and gently rub into face, neck and chest. Use remainder for hands and cuticles.
  1. 6. Hydrate with Karisma Sheen Body Oil. To lock in skin’s moisture, gently towel-dry skin after shower or bath, then apply to the entire body while skin is still damp. Massage into cuticles, elbows, knees and other rough areas. Continues to brighten, exfoliate and moisturize long after application. May also be used on dry skin for quick moisture on-the-go.
Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles: The skin’s natural oil production decreases as we grow older, causing the moisture barrier to break down, the skin to dry out and wrinkles to deepen.

Restores, maintains and strengthens the skin’s natural moisture barrier to lock in hydration leaving the skin better hydrated and more resilient. When the barrier is restored, the skin can better absorb the replenishing nutrients that reduce signs of premature aging.

Contains antioxidants that prevent damage to the skin by free radicals, delaying the signs of aging.

Contains a concentrated dose of Omega Fatty Acids and is a natural source of vitamins: Karisma Ultimate Face Oil contains Omega-3 fatty acids which have as many benefits to us through the skin as they do when they are ingested. They are anti-inflammatory, so they treat skin concerns such as acne, rosacea, dryness and eczema. Karisma Ultimate Face Oil is also full of vitamins and antioxidants that feed the skin and improve its overall resilience.

Contains high levels of skin-identical ingredients. The outer layer of our skin is oil-based, and is mostly composed of fatty acids, ceramides and cholesterol — all of which are bio-available in facial oils. By applying Karisma Ultimate Face Oil, you are giving your skin highly usable nutrients that the skin recognizes and works positively with. Every Drop Counts!

There are NO FILLERS in Karisma Ultimate Face Oil , every ingredient is active. It is highly concentrated and only requires a very small amount to achieve maximum results. Commercial moisturizers don’t compare because they are usually a synthetic-filled mixture of oil and water that have significantly less concentration of enriching oil and a higher concentration of unsafe, petroleum-based oils.

Unlike Karisma Ultimate Face Oil, most moisturizers are water-based. If your skin is dry, flaky or rough, especially during the winter months, the function of water-based moisturizers as a natural barrier is compromised. They just don’t perform as well to lock in moisture. Karisma Ultimate Face Oil replenishes the skin’s natural oil content, protects the skin’s natural moisture barrier and feeds the skin with the nutrients that it needs to stay healthy, while penetrating deep into the inner layers of the skin to keep toxins out.

Just the opposite. Karisma Ultimate Face Oil will reduce oil production and regulate your skin’s natural sebum leading to prevention, reduction, and even completely eliminating acne breakouts. Using Karisma Ultimate Face Oil pulls dirt and built-up oils from pores, making them look smaller. Hydrating where skin is dull and dehydrated while purifying where skin is prone to blemishes. Karisma Ultimate Face Oil is perfect for all skin types.

Absolutely. Karisma Ultimate Face Oil contains amazing anti-inflammatory properties. It is perfect for calming sensitive skin, irritations, redness and inflammation. It is also extremely effective for calming skin after facials, Botox or laser treatments. Karisma Ultimate Face Oil even treats skin dryness and irritations caused by rosacea and popular anti-aging products such as retinol, salicylic and alpha-hydroxy acids.

Karisma Deep Cleansing Facial Oil cleans while maintaining your skin’s moisture barrier. That “squeaky clean” sensation many of us strive for actually strips skin leaving it dry and unhealthy. If after washing with traditional cleansers your skin feels tight, dry or inflamed, it means the cleanser or cleansing mechanism was too strong and the product has broken down bonds in your skin that form your protective skin barrier. Karisma Deep Cleansing Oil removes dirt and makeup without stripping skin leaving it clean, soft, supple and balanced.

Unlike traditional and “kernel” exfoliators, we use jojoba bead esters to deeply cleanse and gently exfoliate without damaging your skin or the environment. Jojoba oil is a luxurious liquid wax derived from the seed of the jojoba shrub. The oil is turned into a firm wax referred to as a jojoba ester or a jojoba bead. Because jojoba beads are made from a liquid wax, they are bio-degradable and sustainable. Jojoba beads should not be confused with plastic microbeads which pollute the environment, strip the skin and cause microscopic tears which can allow bacteria to enter and can also lead to premature aging.

Karisma formulates small, spherical jojoba bead esters that are smooth, gentle and effective for deep cleansing, making them suitable for all skin types. The smooth edges of jojoba beads make them a great choice to exfoliate skin and treat blemishes. They are gentle, clean and do not tear or damage the skin leaving it open for bacteria to invade.

Karisma Sheen Body Oil can be used on moist or dry skin for quick absorption and continuous hydration. If using after a shower or bath towel dry and leave skin a bit moist. Apply body oil all over and massage in well. Applying Sheen Body oil LOCKS IN skin’s natural moisture — humans are 80% water!

Karisma’s proprietary blend of the most pure and efficacious oils will absorb deeply and quickly on dry or moist skin, lock in moisture and continue to hydrate throughout the day.

No and no! Karisma’s proprietary blend was specifically formulated for quick, deep absorption and continuous hydration. During the formulation process we actually performed a “silk shirt” test. If any product left a mark on a silk shirt after application… we reformulated again and again, achieving the perfect blend that absorbs quickly and deeply, providing continuous all-day hydration.

You can get ready in a rush and not have to worry about waiting to get dressed. Although we’d love you to take your time to enjoy the Karisma experience, we know this is not always possible!

Absolutely not. Karisma Sheen Body Oil was custom formulated with a proprietary blend of the most pure oils. It provides quick absorption and continuous hydration for ALL skin types. It will not clog pores or cause breakouts. It will hydrate, exfoliate, tighten, brighten and deeply hydrate all day long.

Unlike the Karisma Skincare Collection . Lotions are made of mostly water, oils and emulsifiers that evaporate after applying to your skin. The emulsifier is usually a lab-manufactured chemical and most are ethylated which can expose you to carcinogens and mutagens. Most importantly, lotion moisturizers are upwards of 65% water which must be preserved with chemicals to keep out mold and bacteria, so not only are you covering your skin in chemicals, fragrances, and preservatives but more than half of what you apply disappears leaving skin dry. All of Karisma’s products are formulated so that each ingredient is active, meaning it is there to obtain a specific result. They are made from the purest, most efficacious ingredients that will not evaporate but rather deeply penetrate your skin. Each and every Karisma product will leave your skin soft, supple and radiant.

First it is important to understand what a comedogenic rating is. In the simplest terms it is a scale from 0-5 that tells you the likelihood of an ingredient clogging your pores. A rating of zero means that an ingredient will not clog your pores… and a rating of 5 means that an ingredient will definitely clog your pores.

This may come as a surprise, but everyone’s favorite, Coconut Oil, has a comedogenic rating of 4! This oil is a go-to for many because of its amazing, health-promoting and beautifying properties, but only for those who tolerate it well. Coconut oil is rather heavy and has a slow absorption rate. Unless you want to risk breaking out and standing around awhile before getting dressed — steer clear.

Many body oils and moisturizers contain Palm Kernel oil which also has a comedogenic rating of 4. Its texture and rate of absorption is similar to that of coconut oil but will make most skin types break out. In addition, most Palm Kernel oil is not sustainably sourced and wreaks havoc on the environment due to deforestation.
