    Polyglutamic Acid

    Polyglutamic Acid is a super hydrator, holding more water than hyaluronic acid to deeply moisturize your skin. It boosts your skin’s own moisture levels and works hand-in-hand with hyaluronic acid to keep skin hydrated and slow down aging signs like wrinkles. This ingredient leaves your skin looking fuller and smoother, making it feel soft and youthful.


    SK Influx V MB intensively hydrates and restores the skin's natural barrier, reducing dryness and flakiness for a smoother complexion. Its lipid-rich formula helps minimize the appearance of wrinkles, enhancing skin firmness and elasticity. Ideal for sensitive and mature skin, it rejuvenates and imparts a youthful, radiant glow.


    Phytosphingosine is a natural fat in your skin that strengthens its protective layer, helping to keep moisture in and irritants out. It's a key ingredient for ceramides, which keep your skin smooth by filling in tiny cracks. Plus, it fights against skin problems like acne and eczema, making it great for keeping your skin clear and calm.

    Hyaluronic Acid

    Hyaluronic Acid deeply hydrates your skin, holding over 1000 times its weight in water, giving you a plump, refreshed look. It boosts collagen production, vital for firm, healthy skin, and speeds up healing, making it great for recovering from skin damage. As a powerful anti-aging ingredient, it helps maintain skin hydration and elasticity, keeping your skin looking youthful and vibrant.


    Squalane (Olive derived) is a light oil that deeply moisturizes your skin and protects it from things like pollution, thanks to its antioxidant power. It calms redness and makes skin tone even, which is great for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Squalane also helps control your skin's oil levels, keeping it balanced and smooth without blocking your pores, for healthier-looking skin.


    Ceramides are like the glue that holds your skin cells together, keeping your skin strong and smooth. They help lock in moisture and protect your skin from things like pollution and sun damage. Keeping your ceramide levels up is important for healthy, hydrated skin that looks young and feels soft. Replenishing ceramides can also help soothe and reduce skin issues like dryness, redness, and signs of aging, making them a key ingredient for maintaining your skin's overall health and appearance.


    Allantoin, derived from the comfrey plant, is a gentle yet effective skin care ingredient that deeply hydrates and soothes. It acts as a natural emollient, preventing dryness and reducing irritation, making it ideal for sensitive skin. Its exfoliating properties help remove dead skin cells, improving skin texture and brightness. Additionally, allantoin supports collagen production, aiding in skin repair and rejuvenation for a healthier, more youthful appearance.


    Glycerin is a natural moisturizer that draws water to your skin, keeping it hydrated and preventing dryness. It strengthens your skin's barrier, protecting against irritants and boosting skin's resilience, making it healthier and more robust. Additionally, glycerin aids in healing, has mild germ-fighting properties, and replenishes essential moisturizing factors, keeping your skin soft and supple as you age.


    Urea, found naturally in your skin, helps keep it moist and soft by drawing in and holding onto water. It also gently removes dead skin, making your skin smoother and helping other skincare products work better. Plus, urea can help fight off mild fungus, keeping your skin free from flaking and rough patches.

    Hydrolyzed Collagen

    Hydrolyzed Collagen, with its small molecules, easily penetrates the skin, enhancing its ability to retain moisture for a smoother, more hydrated complexion. While applied topically, it provides a visible smoothing effect on fine lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a more youthful appearance. As a humectant, it locks in moisture, ensuring your skin stays hydrated and plump for longer periods.

    Tocopherol (Vit E)

    Vitamin E is your skin's shield against environmental damage, actively fighting signs of aging caused by UV rays and pollution. It promotes healing and relief from skin irritations like eczema, while effectively regulating oil balance for a clearer complexion. Essential for keeping skin hydrated and supple, Vitamin E strengthens your skin's natural barrier, preventing dryness for a smooth, youthful appearance.

    How should I apply The Face Lotion for optimal results?

    Achieving radiant, healthy skin with our face lotion is easy and efficient. Here’s how to maximize the benefits:

    Start with a Clean Canvas: For optimal absorption, apply the lotion to damp skin immediately after cleansing. Tip: The Face Wash is the perfect precursor to ensure your skin is pristine and ready to absorb nutrients.

    A Little Goes a Long Way: Start with less than a dime-sized amount of the lotion. Its concentrated formula means a small amount is sufficient to cover your face thoroughly.

    Gentle Application: Massage the lotion gently into your skin until it is fully absorbed. The rapid-absorbing formula penetrates quickly, leaving no residue behind.

    Layer If Needed: For those with extra dry skin, apply a second layer for added hydration. Thanks to the lotion's design for instant penetration, you can reapply as needed without worrying about overdoing it.

    Follow these steps once to twice daily to ensure you harness all the restorative benefits the face lotion has to offer, paving the way to visibly healthier and more vibrant skin.

    How long will it take to see results while using The Face Lotion?

    Here’s a glimpse into the transformative timeline you can expect with consistent use, morning and night:

    Week 1: Discover a noticeable balance in oil production and a reduction in inflammation. Blemishes start to diminish as your skin becomes visibly healthier, clearer, more supple, and vibrant.

    Week 2: Watch as blotching and dark spots begin to fade, unveiling an even and more radiant complexion.

    Week 3: Feel the firmness and elasticity of your skin improve, along with a visible decrease in the appearance of existing wrinkles.

    Week 4 and beyond: Experience a significant boost in collagen production, slowing down the formation of new wrinkles. Your skin reaches a new equilibrium, becoming a self-regulating ecosystem capable of maintaining its own health and vitality.

    With our face lotion, results build progressively—each day brings you closer to achieving the flawless, enduring beauty you desire. Stick with it, and let your skin show you what it’s capable of!

    Can The Face Lotion be used under makeup?

    Absolutely! It’s been expertly formulated to provide a perfect base for makeup. Thanks to its rapid absorption and matte finish, it sinks deeply into your skin without leaving any residue. 

    This means you can smoothly apply your makeup right after without worrying about product sliding, pilling or interfering in anyway. Enjoy an effortless makeup application every time you use our lotion as your base.

    Is The Face Lotion an effective eye cream?

    Absolutely. The skin around your eyes is delicate and requires gentle care, which is exactly what our lotion provides. Its formulation includes ingredients that naturally occur in your skin, ensuring it's gentle enough for the sensitive eye area while being effective.

    This means you can simplify your skincare routine without compromising on care, giving your eye area the hydration and protection it needs to look bright and youthful.

    How does The Face Lotion interact with oily or acne-prone skin?

    This product is non-greasy and completely non-comedogenic. There's no amount of application that risks clogging pores, causing breakouts or intensifying acne. It’s perfect for all skin types providing peace of mind with every application.

    How will The Face Lotion react with other steps in my skincare routine?

    Our face lotion can be a balanced addition to any skincare regimen. Although it's designed to streamline your routine by replacing multiple products, we understand the desire to “try” it alongside popular products.

    Rest assured, our lotion has been formulated to avoid interactions with other ingredients, including harsh retinols and acids. It’s fully compatible with the diverse world of skincare products.

    Is The Face Lotion helpful for extremely dry skin?

    Absolutely, it’s specially formulated for deep, multi-layer hydration, perfect for tackling severely dry skin. Its fast-absorbing nature allows you to layer an additional amount for extra moisture without worry. Just apply a second layer after the first has absorbed to customize hydration levels according to your skin’s needs, ensuring it stays supple and smooth.

    What is the "tightening" I'll notice when first using The Face Lotion?

    One of the initial sensations you might notice is a gentle "tightening" or "firming" of your skin. This feeling is a sign that the potent, skin-nourishing ingredients in our face lotion are beginning to work their magic. They're absorbing deeply, filling the spaces between skin cells, and beginning to revitalize and firm your skin from within.

    This tightening is not just a sensation but a signal that your skin's renewal processes are kicking into gear, setting the stage for visible improvements.

    How long does The Face Lotion last?

    Shelf Life: 2 years prior to opening. But, to guarantee the freshest and most potent experience possible, we craft our products in exclusive micro-batches of just 250 units. This painstaking process ensures that no unit sits for more than 30 days before reaching you.

    Period After Opening:
    12 -18 months after opening.

    Usage: When used twice daily, a single 80mL bottle of our face lotion is designed to last approximately 4 months, making it a lasting addition to your skincare routine.



    "I have a huge amount of products from different brands that I've used to combat the signs of aging facial skin. Nothing worked as well as this the Face Lotion I now use. Instead of applying multiple products to my face each morning and night after cleansing I now only need one. My skin is softer, fine wrinkles are less noticeable and I was just complimented on my beautiful skin this week. I am 72 years old but my skin doesn't look it."

    Really pleased with the Picture Perfect Face system!

    It has taken me a few weeks to feel I could honestly review these products. When I first started using them, my skin was really dry and I felt it looked worse than when I had been using other products. The reality was that I had been using a hodge podge of products, including retinol and tretinoin in search of a more youthful appearance. It has taken 5 or so weeks, and supplementation with the Super Creme, for my skin to begin to look and feel much better.

    It's extremely easy to be impatient, particularly given the instant improvement promises given by so many skin products these days. The reality ends up being that one must take some time with a product and one's skin in order for things to find any degree of equilibrium. I still have some progress to make, I'm sure, but I'm very pleased so far.

    I'll finish up with something to say about price. There are SO many products out there that cost less and much, much more than Basic Maintenance products. They are riddled with ingredients that look very chemistry/chemical in nature and leave one wondering what they actually do, to one's skin and overall health! Finding products that provide results and are cost effective is pretty difficult. Basic Maintenance does cost a bit more than some products. However, the amount one actually uses is, comparatively much lower than other products. As a result, they last longer and the overall price ends up being lower than a great number of other products. So, a nice line of products and an acceptable and ultimately cost effective price.

    p.s. I couldn't complete a review without leaving a closing addition about Basic Maintenance's customer support. It's superlative! In fact, the support I received easily rates in my Top 5 customer service experiences, ever. I received answers to my questions and supplementary support to find a solution that works for me. So, if you want a great company that stands behind its excellent products, Basic Maintenance is worth your time and money.

    Face wash and cream

    I love these products! When I first started using them I had an issue with dryness but the customer service was amazing and my problem resolved. I am in my sixties and have probably used every kind of product out there. There are no miracle solutions out there, no matter what the hype says. I was tired of trying product after product. When I saw basic maintenance I was very interested. I love the simplicity and the results. I would prefer more pore reduction but I have seen some so I’m hoping it will continue to improve the longer I use the products. I would like to have some colour coding on each product. Even just a small dot on the top would make it easier to tell which product is which. I can’t wait for their sunscreen to come out and I’m hoping it comes in a tinted form. This all I use for makeup now. I was wondering if a subscription could be set up. An automatic shipment based on an individual’s use. Would make it easier than remembering to place an order in time for when a product runs out.

    The Facial Lotion

    I was fortunate to be referred to Basic Maintenance by a family member about two years ago. Having dealt with dry facial skin for decades it was a relief to finally find a product that worked as advertised. The Facial Lotion feels soothing on my skin and absorbs quickly. My skin is healthy looking and much more resilient. Definitely a worthwhile purchase.

    Shelley Roy
    Picture Perfect Face

    I have just stated using these products and not quite sure if they will give me the results I want. I have been using more oils on my face so do not find these products as moisturizing as I would like. For now I will continue using them to give my skin a chance to adjust. I am adding a little bit of an oil moisturizer on top and this helps. I do have mature skin so maybe it will take a little longer to see the benefits.??

    LOVE these products

    It's only been 3 or 4 weeks so far but my skin is already loving these. The wrinkles around my eyes are softer and my complexion has completely evened out. Looking forward to seeing what changes come next!
