Review Of M-61 Skincare

Founders of Bluemercury, Marla and Barry Beck, realized their was a need for skincare that combined the power of nature with science after years of working with customers at Bluemercury in search of such products. In an effort to fill this gap in the beauty industry, they developed M-61 Skincare, a line currently sold in Bluemercury and the M-61 website. I’ve recently tried a selection of M-61 products and I have nothing but positive things to say.

2-MINUTE VITAMIN C FACIAL MASK ‘Fast Blast’ ($50) – This has been my favorite product from M-61. Women love pampering themselves with facials, but how often can we really find the time or money to have them done as much as we want? Now, you can have a mini-facial with spa quality results in your own home. ‘Fast Blast’ provides a slight tingling sensation when applied. Once removed with water, your skin is left brighter, glowing and hydrated. The Vitamin C in this mask gives a radiant complexion to those with more dull skin, while Vitamin B5 gently hydrates. It’s also infused with seaweed, aloe vera and Vitamin E. This mask is suitable for all skin types and is the perfect way to treat you and your girlfriends for a girl’s night in.

‘Brilliant Cleanse’ SKIN-SMOOTHING ALPHA BETA HYDROXY CREAMFACE CLEANSER ($32) – is an amazing cleanser that contains glycolic, salicylic, lactic and malic acids, which clarify the skin and smooth out texture. It also has mandarin orange peel extract, which tones and soothes skin, and flavonoid rich grapefruit extract, which brightens. Even with the gentle exfoliating properties, this cleanser is extremely creamy and does not feel harsh on the skin. This product is best for candidates with mature and dry skin.

‘Vitablast’ VITAMIN C & E SERUM Oil-Free ($92) – if you have oily/combination skin, this serum is an amazing product for you. It contains gallic acid, which targets dull skin and promotes a radiant complexion. It also helps with hyperpigmentation. It feels lightweight on the skin and sinks in within seconds. It took me about a week to see a significant difference in the texture and tone of my skin, and I instantly saw a difference in radiance. This product must be followed with your favorite moisturizer to ensure you receive the moisture you need.

‘Hydraboost Eye’ HYDRATING PEPTIDE AND VITAMIN B5 EYE CREAM ($78) – is an amazing eye cream. It’s the perfect product for reducing the appearance of fine lines and under-eye circles and puffiness. This eye cream firms using ingredients such as Vitamin B5, tamarind, soy and white mulberry. Hyaluronic acid helps to moisturize the eye area as well. It also works amazingly under a creamy concealer, so that the concealer can be applied smoothly and won’t tug at the fragile skin around the eye. Additionally, this product can be used in morning and night, so no more worrying about buying two separate eye creams.

Overall, I would say the price point for these products is justified with the benefits and results they provide. M-61 Skincare is for consumers who wants high performance products that deliver amazing results from the infusion of nature and science. At this time, there is no moisturizer in the line, but I can only hope that there will be one soon!
