"After using 4.5.6 Skin for a month, I noticed the hyperpigmentation on my skin finally starting to fade. I will keep using this product, until hopefully one day my face is clear, and will come back for another review. About to order my second bottle now!"

How does the 4.5.6 Skin customisation process work?
Our products are researched, developed. Once you’ve taken the Skin Quiz, our algorithm determines the best-suited formulation for you. After that, your bespoke formulation(s) will be freshly made-to-order by our skin experts, and swiftly delivered to your door, and customised in our proprietary laboratory located in the heart of the French Cosmetic Valley. You can find us on Google Maps here.
Are your products 100% natural, organic, or vegan?
We are 100% Good Face Project approved, Sephora and Ulta Beauty Clean. We use 90% of natural, organic biodynamic ingredients combined with science-backed, lab-made ingredients for maximum effectiveness.
When can I expect to start seeing results from my products?
How quickly you see results will depend on consistency with your skincare routine. We’ll never promise miracles (no one should), but with commitment, you will see results from up to 1-month.
Are your products cruelty-free?
Absolutely. All our products are cruelty-free.
Is fragrance used in your products?
We offer two options; with or without fragrance. Any fragrance we may use has been legally-tested hypoallergenic, and proven to be allergen-free. For those with highly sensitive skin, we recommend a patch test on the inner arm a few days prior to face application.
Why the name ‘4.5.6 Skin?’
We cater our products, research, and development exclusively to darker skin tones ; phototypes 4, 5, and 6 on The Fitzpatrick Scale. That’s why we thought it only right to wear our philosophy on our sleeves, so to speak—and name our melanin-centric brand, 4.5.6 Skin.
Who manufactures 4.5.6 Skin?
Our products are researched, developed, manufactured, and customised in our proprietary laboratory located in the heart of the French Cosmetic Valley. You can find us on Google Maps here.

I was looking for something for my almost 40 year old skin. Hydrating and smoothing. Most anti aging routines leave my oily akin feeling super dry.
It took a few weeks for my skin to get used to the routine, but once it did I love it.
At first, I was trying one product at a time, but when I bought the entire line, it was only then that I saw the difference. I absolutely love the way my skin looks. The hyperpigmentation is definitely improving, and my skin is bright with a beautiful texture.
The 3-Step Hydro Set
This serum is like nectar from the gods. You can instantly feel it working to hydrate and nourish your skin. I am a customer for life!
I have been using the Green Bae, Exfoliating Mask and Brightening Serum for a little over a month and I’ve really noticed a difference in my skin. While my acne is still an issue. I can tell some of the dark spots are fading and the hormonal area of my chin is getting smoother. I also love the tacky feeling of using the serum. My skin is glowing again.
Clean my face but not see a result of my Melasma going down or improve at all
I was excited to receive this product.
The packaging is beautiful and elegant. It lathers well and smells good. Unfortunately after using it before bed I woke up the next morning with an itchy rash similar to a heat rash. I haven’t used it again.
Live it! And works for acne prone skin too. Will be trying your other products.
So far so good, skin feels soft and looks clearer.
Loving these products. Highly recommend!
