Another year has come and gone, and we can hardly believe all that we've done this year, between launching new products, starting a new subscription program, and all the office fun we have.
Of course, we wouldn't be here if it weren't for you guys—our incredible customers. It's our shared commitment to a better, greener, cleaner world that keeps our doors open everyday, and for that, we thank you endlessly.
We can't wait to see what the next year brings! Til then, here's our 2018 recap.
3 new products launched this year
Our Beauty Blend Tea launched early this February, and we haven't stopped sipping it since. Packed with nourishing herbs like hand-selected yerba mate, nettle, and horsetail, Beauty Blend stimulates and supports a healthy glow from within.
Next up came our Probiotic Serum with Tremella, an incredibly hydrating elixir packed with cutting edge ingredients like probiotic ferment and tremella mushrooms. This restorative formulation works overtime to protect the skin against environmental stressors.
Last but certainly not least came the Illuminating Pearl Mask, AKA a spa day in a tub, our most luxurious, hydrating, and brightening mask yet.
Oh and don't worry, we're already working on some treats for next year.

our most popular product
A tried and true favorite, our Anti-Aging Serum was by and far our most popular product this year. This versatile, aloe vera-based serum provides active nutrients for all skin types, firming and tightening the appearance of aging skin.
Hyaluronic acid hydrates, while the herbal extracts protect skin from environmental stressors. Life everlasting flowers soothe and refresh.
480 cups of kombucha consumed at HQ
Yes, you read that right. Our headquarters is complete with a keg of kombucha, and we downed 480 cups this year. Yay gut health!
136 heart cards sent
Heart cards are a favorite around the office—they're little, anonymous notes we write to each other, letting our teammates know that we appreciate them. Since launching in the summer, we've sent 136 between 20 of us.
41,479 questions answered by our Customer Happiness team
At the heart of everything we do is our customers. Our incredible Customer Happiness team works tirelessly with the utmost kindness and diligence to ensure that our customers are taken care of.
This year, they answered 41,479 tickets (gasp!) This includes helping out on anything from returns, to site issues, to answering questions about our products, and everything in between.
Our most popular article
Face Mapping: What Your Pimples Are Trying To Tell You is by and far our most popular article.
Face mapping is a theory that suggests the location of your acne could present clues about what’s causing it. Traditional Chinese medicine, for example, maintains that a weakness or toxicity in a certain organ or gland in the body can result in acne showing up in certain areas of the skin.
You can use this theory to do some detective work on your breakouts. Our readers have been doing some A+ sleuthing this year!
Our Top New Article
Although Face Mapping was our most popular, it was originally published in 2016.
Our top new article from this year was The 5 Minute DIY Facial Massage for Bouncy, Rejuvenated Skin—an amazing step by step instructional blog from an experienced esthetician on how to give yourself an anti-aging facial massage.
A few of our favorite we hearts
We Heart is our monthly, ongoing blog column devoted to sharing the ethical, natural, wellness-oriented companies that we love. Every month, we hand select a new company, across a range of industries, to share with our community.
We vet these companies to ensure their business practices align with our company's values—checking everything from sourcing, to production methods, to certifications and more. You can rest easy knowing these companies models align with the Annmarie Skin Care standards for ethical, sustainable, and clean products.
These are just a few of our favorites from this year!
See you next year!
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support. After all, none of this would be possible without you. Wishing our whole community a very happy New Year!
