Vitamin B-packed non-drying acne serum / 1 oz full size
Marie Veronique’s Treatment Serum is one of those products that stealthily tiptoes its way into your heart, curls up there, and won’t budge. What’s so great about it? For starters, its versatility: you can use it as an all-over treatment, a troubled-area treatment, or simply a spot treatment (get one of the mini sizes for your handbag or travel kit).
But perhaps most of all, people seem to be taken with the fact that it’s an honest-to-goodness acne solution rather than a quick band-aid. Thanks to its proprietary blend of B vitamins and micronutrients, it decongests skin and helps break down sebum beautifully, leaving you with a satisfying “all of the bad stuff is getting out of my skin in exactly the way that it should” feeling. A host of anti-inflammatories keep skin calm and help prevent additional breakouts from popping up, too. It’s hard to explain, but this combination of great ingredients just feels right. As Marie puts it, “It works with nature to control hormonal-related breakouts” – it really does seem as though it’s working with your skin, not against it. And because it also hydrates and improves skin’s texture, it feels like a very adult solution to what feels like an annoyingly adolescent problem.
We've learned, over the years, that the right acne solution — perhaps more than anything else — is entirely dependent upon the individual. This product is a great one to have in your acne-fighting arsenal when all of the others you've tried seem too strong or too drying.
How to Use
NIACINAMIDE (Vitamin B3), with demonstrated anti-inflammatory properties, may be of benefit to patients with inflammatory skin conditions, including acne vulgaris. In particular, it blocks the inflammatory actions of iodides known to exacerbate acne.
ARGAN OIL is rich in omega-6 and 9, vitamin E, carotenes, squalene and phenols, with a remarkable ability to nourish, moisturize and improve skin elasticity. It's also known to help control surface sebum, thus eliminating that greasy look.
