PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: ANTI-ACNE SERUM

People wax poetic about the Drying Lotion; there’s hardly wrong in that. But on the wayside falls acne skincare products that deserve just as much mention as the famous little bottle of pink Calamine. Our Anti-Acne Serum is one such rising star – we love the instant gratification of an overnight “pimple eraser” (not our words, but the lovely Jordan’s!) as much as the next, but as you know well by now, we believe in starting with the foundation. Good skin starts with good skin care. It’s possible to skip the whole need for quick fixes if we start at the root of the problem: prevention.

In a nutshell, the Anti-Acne Serum helps prevent pimples and pore congestion. But more specifically, it’s our unique blend of ingredients in a lightweight gel that make this product a must-have for acne-sufferers: Thyme Extract’s antibacterial and antiseptic properties and Salicylic Acid work together to help dissolve dead skin cells and reduce pore clogging dirt and oil to improve the texture and appearance of your complexion.

Apply a thin layer to acne-prone areas on the skin as a nightly treatment. Let it re-balance and rehydrate your skin – and with routine use, you will see a difference in clarity of your skin.

SPRINGING FORWARD

It was the official Daylight Savings Time this past Sunday (even after years of grade school instilling the adorable little phrase, “fall back, spring forward,” it’s still a mystery to the majority of us). Potatoes, pot-ahh-toes; tomatoes, to-mah-toes.

What we do care about, however, is that it’s nearly spring here in the northern hemisphere. Perhaps not yet officially, but little hints and previews of the warm weather to come have had us longing to put away the winter coats for good. And since spring can’t help but make feel a little giddier inside, we’ve compiled a little checklist of things to keep around to celebrate the unofficial arrival of spring:

  • Bring out the color! We New Yorkers love black like none other, but a little pop of a color here or there – be it a scarf, a top, an accessory, or something as subtle as new manicure – somehow makes us that much more spring-ready.
  • Add a little bit of zest to your cleanser. We love tailoring our skincare regimen to the weather (that is, unless you’re happy with what you already use!). That little spring in our step – no pun intended – has us wanting us an extra boost of a refresher. The Enzyme Cleansing Gel is one of our most popular for good reason – it freshens and brightens!
  • Refresh and renew. With our Flower and Tonic Mask. It soothes skin while removing dirt and impurities for a smoother, healthier complexion. It’s universal enough for all skin types, and gentle enough for that transition between delicate winter skin and spring skin (after that, we love any other cleansing and tightening mask!).

SPOTTED!

One of our little stars made it into the slew of bloggers’ and vloggers’ roundup of February favorites…

WHO: Jen, of Frm Head to Toe. A Youtube beauty guru, designer, and freelance makeup artist all rolled into one; and given her enormously bubbly personality, it’s no wonder her fans question how it all fits into one petite frame.

WHAT: Our Vitamin C Serum (it’s an easy one to love).

WHERE: This little MB star made yet another cameo in the beauty world, this time, in Jen’s February roundup of beauty favorites.

WHY: A bad cystic breakout a few months, though completely cleared up eventually, left quite a lot of hyperpigmentation and scarring behind. Jen started using this nightly to help lighten up those areas to find that, drum roll please, she loves it,

“I think a lot of brightening products they say they’re supposed to help lighten scars… but mostly I don’t see a big difference. But this I feel like this does brighten my overall complexion and helps the scar to fade just a little faster.”

Do you love the Vitamin C Serum too?

NOW PRESENTING… CREAM X

Apparently Project X, one of the latest releases out now in movie theaters, has been stealing the limelight as of late; we felt it only fair to give our own little star a toot.

So here we are, presenting Mario Badescu’s very own Cream X. It’s perhaps just as good as Project X. Maybe even better.

(There’s one catch – you can’t watch it. You could, but it’d be no fun. Why stare when you could use it?)

It’s our richest and thickest cream for the most dehydrated of dry skin. A cocktail of exfoliants, vitamin oils, antioxidants (ncluding Vitamins A and E), the ever-moisture-retaining Hyaluronic Acid, and soothing Keratoplast, it’s no wonder that sensitive skin will just drink it up.

But go easy – a little goes a long way.

Wake up with a beautiful complexion. Plump, radiant, and youthful.

We didn’t think Project X could do that.

EASY DOES IT

We live in a society that values instant gratification, where faster and stronger is supposedly better. It’s a (quick!) means to an end, you say – why not?

Don’t. Before you reach for the strongest treatment or product highest in alcohol or salicylic acid content for that – gasp! – pimple on your forehead, retrace your footsteps, and start at the beginning.

Let this be your mantra: Easy does it.

Slow and steady wins the race – and good skin doesn’t always come with an instant fix (though, in some cases, we do love those). It comes with investment. Your skin is worth your time and the extra care – beautiful skin starts with good skincare.

We’re a firm believer in keeping a bottle of Drying Lotion in your arsenal at all times. Maybe a little jar of Silver Powder too. But before you ritualistically reach for either, or try to get your hands on Special Cleansing Lotion “C,” talk to one of our skincare specialists first. Maybe you’re being a little harsh on your skin: let it breathe, let it re-balance itself, take it easy. Be gentle.

It’s the our philosophy: simple, gentle and effective.

Love your skin and it will love you right back.
