REVIEW OF THE M2 LINE OF SKIN CARE REFINISH PRODUCTS
I have always been looking for products that will help even out my skin tone and reduce wrinkles. I suffer from Rosacea and use a prescription gel to help reduce the redness. When I was offered the M2 line of skin care to try, I jumped at the opportunity.
Transform your skin with the power of M2, the latest skin care collection from the makers of MaMa Lotion. M2 incorporates Mandelic and Malic Acids into each of its products. These unique Alpha Hydroxy Acids have the amazing ability to resurface your skin, eliminating acne, softening wrinkles, and lightening scars and hyperpigmentation. I was given the whole line to try.
Delve deep into your pores with this refreshing, refining cleanser. M2 Exfoliating Cleanser is a gel formula that removes all traces of impurities, including dirt, oil, and makeup. The Mandelic and Malic Acid formula gently exfoliates dead skin cells, leaving behind a glowing radiance. This soap and sulfate-free wash won't strip or irritate the skin.
I enjoyed using the cleanser. A little went a long way and it did not over lather. The product rinsed clean and did not feel sticky and left my face refreshed.
Skin Refinish 12%:
Eliminate all your skin care woes with one easy-to-use serum. This multi-purpose face treatment uses a high-potency combination of Mandelic and Malic Acids to rapidly even skin tone, reduce breakouts, and soften wrinkles.
I did apply my prescription gel before applying the Skin Refinish. I dropped my first M2 bottle once and the swivel spout broke and I was not able to pump out the product. I had cover the opening rubber glove to prevent the product from drying out. You only need a small amount to cover your face evenly. I having been using it for a month now and I feel that it is helping to even my tone and reduced pore size. It was a little sticky and took about 5 minutes to dry but then my face felt smooth. It did cause a little redness and a burning sensation the first couple of times that I used it but that resolved rather quickly.
I did not get the opportunity to try the Skin Refinish 20% because I wanted to give the 12% a chance to work.
Skin Recovery Moisturizer:
Soothe and repair your stressed, dehydrated skin with this oil-free, antioxidant-rich moisturizer. Formulated to comfort and protect the skin from moisture loss throughout the day while improving the appearance of aging, acne, and hyperpigmentation.
I was not impressed with the moisturizer. It left my skin very sticky and I had to use a separate moisturizer to make my skin feel smooth. The packaging was easy to use, dispensed the right amount of the product and it was easy to spread.
Skin Refinish 20% and the Body Refinish 15%:
I did not try the Body Refinish and the Skin Refinish 20% but I plan to soon. I feel that they will be just as good as the other products. So check back for my review.
Overall, I was pleased with the overall effects of the products. They did help reduce my redness and irritation. I did not stop using my prescription gel while using the products because I did not want a flareup of my Rosacea. I will definitely be using the products in the future. I have researched other products and the M2 line is priced comparably with the other brand name products.
Please visit the M2 site for more information on the products and where to purchase them.
I was given the complete line of the M2 products for my honest review and I was not compensated for my review.
