Yay—let's recycle! Here’s a quick guide for when you've finished using all your products:
1. Make the products 'recycle ready' by rinsing it out and cleaning it. What if the product doesn't work for me? Give it to someone who might like to try it! That way, you will minimise wastage and give the product a second home. ♡♡
2. Get the DETAILS! Typically, most skin care packaging is recyclable in Australia, but what can and can’t be recycled depends on where you live. A quick Google search will reveal a recycling guideline based on your state / territory.
3. Can I put this in my recycling bin? If you've checked and the answer is 'yes', give these items a second life and put them in the recycling bin. If it's not, look into enterprises like TerraCycle, to help you properly recycle your beauty products. If the product is recycable through TerraCycle, it is FREE and all you have to do is gather your empty products together, print a recycling label and ship it out - that’s it! They’ll take care of the rest for you.
FYI, recycling plants uses numbers ranging from 1 to 7 to help sort all the materials. PETE stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate and PP stands for Polypropylene — these are both plastics. PAP represents paper / mixed paper / cardboard. See Earth Easy to learn more about your plastics.
That's it babes! Remember to love our earth; love our planet! #dontbetrashy
A retinol scrub? Yep, you heard right! The Retinol Lift Micro Scrub from SVR Laboratories (also known as Microgommage Lift) is an innovative, dual-action mask. It refines your skin texture via physical exfoliation as well as treating it with a 0.1% concentration of vitamin A. The results will blow you away. In a clinical trial, 91% of users saw fewer blackheads and tighter pores while 87% reported visibly clearer skin..
Retinol Lift Micro Scrub has a gel texture that emulsifies on contact with water. It contains quartz and volcanic sand to gently slough away dead skin, while retinol works below the surface to increase skin cell turnover. Pure rosehip oil (5%), glycerin, soybean oil and vitamin E ensure you're never left with that dry, tight feeling. With every use, your skin will be smoother, less congested and more radiant.

On contact with water, it turns into a milk. Rinse off with water. Use 1 to 3 times per week depending on your skin type.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are SVR products good?
SVR products are SO good - and that's evidenced by the brand's durability. It's been around since the 1960's, and has never swayed from its core principles of active ingredients, sensitive-skin friendly, and clinical results. In fact, Kanvas Beauty is the first retailer to introduce SVR Laboratories to Australia - and simply by word of mouth, the brand went from relatively unknown to one of our top sellers in a little under two years!.
Where is SVR skincare from?
SVR skincare hails from France, the traditional mecca of beauty and cosmetics. Every SVR product you buy is made in France, and complies with strict European regulations around product safety (some of the most stringent in the world).
What are the benefits of SVR laboratories Retinol Lift Micro Scrub?
The benefits of SVR Laboratories' Retinol Lift Micro Scrub are skin cell turnover, exfoliation and a gentle glow. For those who find chemical exfoliants too harsh and retinol a little too difficult for their sensitized skin, this micro scrub is the perfect solution. All you need to do is very gently massage the scrub over your skin (careful not too press down too hard on the granules), and leave it on your face like a retinol mask for 15-20 minutes, for the vitamin A to do its work. Afterwards, rinse off thoroughly, apply a barrier serum and cream, and you're good to go!
When should I use a retinol scrub?
You should use a retinol scrub as your exfoliation / gentle retinol solution once a week or fortnight, depending on how your skin responds. Careful not to over-exfoliate: typically, our skin doesn't require frequent exfoliation and can benefit from the occasional treatment.
Is SVR laboratories Retinol Lift Micro Scrub good for oily skin?
Because retinol is one of the few skincare ingredients actually proven to shrink pore size, the Retinol Lift Micro Scrub is a great option for oily skin with large pores. Use the scrub and focus on oily areas, patting gently and leaving on as a mask when done exfoliating.
