Ctrl Z


multi-corrective overnight facial: resurface + renew

An advanced resurfacing treatment to dynamically recondition skin’s appearance. An intelligent blend of direct acid, enzyme, and non-acid exfoliants soften visible blemishes, hyperpigmented spots, pores, and texture. Novel actives add supple volume, boost luminosity, and support a resilient microbiome for facial-like results overnight.


Achieve facial-like results overnight.

A multi-step delivery system in a single, sophisticated formula to dynamically recondition skin’s appearance. Blemishes, dark spots, pores, and texture seem instantly blurred, brightened, and smoothed—with cumulative results over time.

Our proprietary blend of direct acid + enzyme + non-acid exfoliants gently soften skin to promote cell turnover, boost efficacy, and allow a fresh, renewed appearance to shine. Mandelic acid balances sebum production while calming the look of inflammatory reactions, making it especially great for tone correction in both light and deep skins. Alongside alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) mandelic and lactic, polyhydroxy acid (PHA) gluconolactone and pineapple enzyme support dynamic sloughing of dead cells and stimulate skin’s repair process.

What makes Ctrl Z’s approach to resurfacing unique is the inclusion of an incredibly efficacious non-acid exfoliant: yeast oligopeptide. Rather than exfoliating cells indiscriminately, this novel ingredient works by boosting skin’s natural exfoliation system to help it work more efficiently and effectively. In studies, it has shown to be more effective than glycolic acid without the irritation. A touch of decongesting beta hydroxy acid (BHA) salicylic acid completes the blend: the optimal ingredient for tackling blackheads and smoothing visible skin texture.

Our resurfacing blend works in synergy with proven actives to deliver transformative results. Achieve firm, bouncy-looking skin with palmitoyl isoleucine. This amino acid derivative targets volume and firming cells to add plumpness to cheeks, fill fine lines and wrinkles, and clear visible effects of oxidative damage. For next-level skin brightening, undecylenoyl phenylalanine suppresses the formation of hyperpigmented marks before they surface to enhance the ethereal glow.

Unlike traditional resurfacing treatments, Ctrl Z’s comprehensive formula supports barrier function, cellular repair, and optimal skin health simultaneously. Tried and true hyaluronic acid teams with the elegant polysaccharide snow mushroom to ensure lasting hydration. Soothing madecassoside from the centella asiatica plant couples with healing panthenol to calm the look of redness and irritation. Isolated from the cell wall of chlorella, freshwater microalgae offers holistic prebiotic skin balance and restoration. Finally, we seal everything in with luscious, antioxidant-rich prickly pear oil to top off this mega-facial with a nutrient-packed mic drop.

How to Use

Hit Ctrl Z for a reset.

Use 2-4 times per week. In the evening, apply two pumps to clean face and neck, avoiding the eye contour. Gently massage to absorb. Congested, acid-tolerant skins may use nightly. Perfect as a standalone, multitasking treatment or layered as desired.

/ Texture.

The texture of Ctrl Z is a light yet nourishing gel-cream emulsion with an addictive custard-like bounce and velvety feel that absorbs instantly. Oily skin types can use as their sole moisturizer while dry skin types may enjoy layering an oil, like The Potion, or your occlusive cream of choice over top.

/ Always wear SPF.

Spot test for sensitivity prior to first use. A slight tingle on application is normal, but there should be no burning sensation. Discontinue use if irritation occurs. Direct acids increase your susceptibility to sun damage. Wear sunscreen daily and limit sun exposure, especially during use and two weeks after.
