Barrier-replenishing, soothing oil with a creamy, fast-absorbing texture / 1 oz
Marie Veronique Louis Pierre Finishing Oil is one of the stars in this lineup of winners for men. It’s an oil, yes, but it has a beautifully creamy, non-greasy texture and mattified finish — perfect for men who might ordinarily shy away from moisturizing creams and other heavy-feeling products. This moisturizer absorbs quickly yet feels protective, making it the perfect final step in a guy’s skincare routine.
There are a host of goodies that make this unique product work so well. A blend of lightweight oils (jojoba, argan, sunflower) pumped up with a touch of more nourishing ones (cranberry seed, pumpkin seed, and emu oil) provides the perfect ratio of essential fatty acids to replenish essential components of skin’s natural protective barrier, which is frequently compromised by regular shaving. Ceramides provide additional support to help skin better retain moisture, making for healthier skin that’s less vulnerable to irritation. And Marie threw in some other really cool ingredients: sandalwood seed oil, which increases microcirculation (since men are less likely to spend a full minute massaging in their oils) and helps regulate redness and oiliness, and phospholipid jojoba milk, which helps speed absorption and improve the delivery of essential lipids to the skin.
And the finish of the Finishing Oil? Awesome. Never greasy, simply hydrated and comfortable and protected. This might just be the perfect moisturizer for men. It's appropriate for faces, bald heads, and beards, too (massage it in well to get all of those great ingredients into the skin).
PS For men who are open to a multi-step regimen, it plays nicely with other Marie Veronique products, too: apply it over the Treatment Serum to treat breakouts, over the Intensive Repair Serum to treat ingrown hairs, or over the Soothing B3 Serum to treat rosacea.
