HOW TO INTRODUCE NEW PRODUCTS INTO YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE
A word on introducing new products into your skincare routine:
STYLE STORY doesn’t recommend testing out all new products all at once (especially on sensitive skin). We recommend patch testing each new product one by one (using a small amount of product in a discrete part of your face) for several days by itself to test for any allergic or adverse reactions, followed by an isolation testing period of 2 weeks.
