About Annmarie Skin Care
What skin care routine is suggested for beginners?
At Annmarie Skin Care we recommend a four step routine for morning and night. These four products are: cleanser, toning mist, serum, and facial oil. You can add more product variations based on individual needs, such as specific concerns or skin types. These products include: eye care, face masks, exfoliation, and boosting elixirs.
What distinguishes the Wild Alchemy Collection from the regular skin care line?
The Wild Alchemy Collection differs from Annmarie Skin Care’s other lines (such as the Signature Collection, Essentials Collection, and Estate Blend Collection) in its usage of exotic and harder-to-source ingredients, crafted with an elevated and more elaborate process, resulting in larger-sized products.
Annmarie Skin Care Cleansers
Which cleansers are suitable for different skin types?
We currently have four different cleansers! Aloe Herb Cleanser which is suitable for sensitive, dry, and neutral skin types. Then we have our Citrus Mint Cleanser, ideal for breakout-prone and oilier skin types. Lastly, our Phytonutrient Cleanser (Wild Alchemy Collection), focused on addressing signs of aging, but less hydrating than the Aloe Herb Cleanser.
Are your cleansers pH balanced?
Yes, all of our cleansers are pH balanced to maintain the skin’s pH levels.
What are the key features of the Phytonutrient Cleanser?
The Phytonutrient cleanser, part of the wild alchemy collection, contains mango seed butter, a signature serum blend, and apple extract to address signs of aging and help fade dark spots on the skin. This cleanser also has a creamier texture, providing a richer feeling compared to others in the collection. It offers a more tropical scent, unlike the lemony scent of the Aloe Herb Cleanser.
What is unique about the Restorative Cleansing Oil?
The Restorative Cleansing Oil is designed for very dry skin and effective makeup removal. It’s a thick, rich oil blend containing manuka oil and tea tree. Making this a fantastic choice for all skin types!
How is the Restorative Cleansing Oil best used for makeup removal?
Apply a pump or two of the oil onto dry hands and face, letting it sit for a short period to break down makeup before removal with a warm washcloth or a second cleanser.
Annmarie Skin Care Toning Mists
What purpose do toning mists serve in skin care routines?
We love toning mists! Toners act as nutritional boosts that aid in serum and oil absorption into the skin.
What are the key ingredients in the Neroli Toning Mist?
The Neroli Toning Mist includes aloe vera juice for hydration, neroli essential oil to help soften the appearance of fine lines and antioxidant benefits, and aspen bark for its slightly astringent properties.
What is the recommended application process for Toning Mists?
After cleansing, generously mist the skin and apply serum and oil while the skin is still damp for optimal absorption.
Do you pat your skin dry before using a toning mist or leave it damp?
Applying toner to damp skin before serum and oil can enhance absorption, preventing oil from sitting on the skin’s surface and causing dryness while looking oily.
What is the Rosemary Toning Mist?
The Rosemary Toning Mist is designed to cut through, absorb, and mitigate excess oil. It’s popular among oilier and breakout-prone skin types. Some with dry skin also use it midday as a blot powder replacement.
How does the Rosemary Toning Mist differ from traditional blotting powders or papers?
Unlike blotting powders or papers that can make the skin appear overly modified or less radiant, the Rosemary Toning Mist absorbs excess oil while maintaining a naturally healthy appearance.
Can the Rosemary Toning Mist be used after a workout?
Yes, it’s recommended by some customers to mist post-workout, either on the skin or in the hair. Bonus, rosemary, is known to support hair growth and strength.
What skin types are best suited for the Botanical Hydration Mist with Immortelle?
The Botanical Hydration Mist is suitable for dry skin types, those experiencing dehydration, sensitive skin, or skin prone to redness.
Which toning mist is recommended for mature skin types?
For mature skin, the choice between the Botanical Hydration Mist and the Neroli Toning Mist depends on the dryness level. If the skin is more on the dry side, the Botanical Hydration Mist is recommended.
Annmarie Skin Care Serums
What makes the Anti-Aging Serum popular?
The Anti-Aging Serum contains hyaluronic acid, ideal for plumping and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and is suitable for drier or sensitive skin types showing signs of aging.
What are the key ingredients and benefits of the Citrus Stem Cell Serum?
The Citrus Stem Cell Serum includes citrus-derived stem cells, Uva ursi, and Licorice Root, which are beneficial for addressing pigmentation and dark spots on the face.
How does the Wild Fruit Serum differ from other serums?
The Wild Fruit Serum is a part of the wild alchemy collection and is more targeted toward broadly addressing signs of aging, providing an overall brightening and evening effect on the skin.
What makes the Activated CBD Serum unique?
The Activated CBD Serum contains both water-soluble and fat-soluble CBD, offering a richer consistency closer to a cream or lotion. It includes a blend of black cumin seed, Astaxanthin, and other nutritious herbal complexes.
What’s the benefit of using CBD in skin care products?
CBD offers multiple benefits in skin care. It aids in rebalancing and soothing the skin, especially for dry, irritated, or sensitive skin. Additionally, it helps in managing breakouts, softening fine lines, and maintaining a youthful glow.
How do I determine which serum is best for my skin type and issues?
Start by trying out different serums to gauge your skin’s reaction. We do have a serum guide on our product pages and blog and we offer product bundles which is a great way to test multiple products. It’s suggested to use one serum at a time to assess its effectiveness before adding others.
Which serums are recommended for aged skin with fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging around the mouth?
For addressing the look of fine lines and sagging, the Activated Night Serum is recommended for nighttime use. During the day, the Wild Fruit Serum helps address the look of dark spots, elasticity, and fine lines. Alternating these two serums can be very effective.
Can I use the Concentrated Boosting Elixirs directly on the skin?
While Hydrate can be used directly on the skin, we would still recommend mixing into either your serum or facial oil. You must mix other elixirs (Brighten and Revitalize) into a serum or oil before application. These two specifically are too potent to apply directly on the skin. Start with one drop to gauge skin tolerance. Then you can go up to 2-3 drops as needed.
How can the Concentrated Boosting Elixirs be incorporated into a skincare routine?
The Concentrated Boosting Elixirs are designed to boost serums or oils in specific directions. For instance, combining Wild Fruit Serum with a drop of Revitalize and two drops of Hydrate can target signs of aging. Mixing Citrus Stem Cell Serum with three drops of Brighton can address dullness and loss of elasticity. Tailoring the routine to individual needs makes your skin care routine unique to you!
Annmarie Skin Care Facial Oils
Why does the company primarily use facial oils as moisturizers instead of lotions or creams?
We have and will continue to explore lotions and creams but struggle to find ingredients to get that cream consistency that meet our core values and shelf-life requirements. Facial oils mimic the skin’s natural oil, providing a more natural, vibrant appearance.
Can you explain the differences between the Anti-Aging Facial Oil and the Rejuvenating Facial Oil?
Both facial oils address signs of aging but through different methods. The Rejuvenating Facial Oil has added active ingredients for a more potent anti-aging effect. For sensitive skin, we recommend spot testing the Rejuvenating Facial Oil as it could potentially be harsh for some people.
How can customers with combination skin benefit from your products?
The Herbal Facial Oil for Normal and Combination Skin, designed to rebalance the skin, as an option for those experiencing both breakouts and signs of aging. That is one of many products normal and combination skin types can benefit from!
Which facial oil would be best for oily skin prone to breakouts?
We recommend the Herbal Facial Oil for Oily Skin, specifically formulated to address excess oil, blackheads, and breakouts. It is also fantastic as a spot treatment!
What products are recommended for addressing fine lines and wrinkles?
The Wild Fruit Serum and the Anti-Aging Eye Cream are recommended for addressing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The Wild Fruit Serum contains apple extract, sockie peptides, and stem cells designed for pronounced smile lines, while the eye cream has CoQ10, stem cells, and cucumber distillate to combat signs of aging around the eyes. It is especially magical for puffiness under the eyes.
Annmarie Skin Care Eye Care
Which product is recommended for reducing puffiness around the eyes?
The Anti-Aging Eye Cream is recommended for reducing puffiness around the eyes due to its formulation containing cucumber distillate, CoQ10, and stem cells, which provide soothing effects.
Is the Anti-Aging Eye Cream a standalone product or should it be used in conjunction with other items?
The eye cream can be used alone, but layering it over other products, especially the Fruit Ceramide Eye Serum, can enhance its effectiveness.
How should I incorporate the Fruit Ceramide Eye Serum into my skincare routine?
Apply the Fruit Ceramide Eye Serum either before or after your facial serum, but always before applying oil in your skincare routine.
Annmarie Skin Care Scrubs & Face Masks
How frequently should I use the Kaolin Micro exfoliant and the Resurfacing Facial Exfoliant?
The Kaolin Micro Exfoliant, with its scrub-like texture, is safe for most skin types and can be used once or twice a week. The Resurfacing Facial Exfoliant, containing lactic acid, is recommended less frequently—start with once every two weeks and adjust based on your skin’s response.
How does the Illuminating Pearl Mask work, and how often should it be used?
The Illuminating Pearl Mask contains crushed pearl powder and imparts a natural radiance to the skin. It’s suggested for use 2-3 times a week or before family events or gatherings for a radiant look and should be followed by the usual skincare routine.
How should I use the Resurfacing Facial Exfoliant and Illuminating Pearl Mask in my skincare routine?
Start by cleansing your face, then apply the Resurfacing Facial Exfoliant followed by the Illuminating Pearl Mask. Rinse off the exfoliant completely before applying your mask. After using the masks, proceed with toning mist, serum, facial oil, and optionally, a gua sha tool for enhanced absorption. As for where to fit this into your skin care routine, it’s advisable to avoid prolonged sun exposure immediately after the exfoliation due to its activity on the skin. This being said, we recommend exfoliating in the evening.
General Product & Routine Education
What’s unique about the Sun Love Sunscreen?
The Sun Love Sheer Everyday Sunscreen is a zinc oxide sunscreen blended with buriti fruit oil and pumpkin seed oil. Unlike typical zinc sunscreens, it absorbs well without leaving a white cast on the skin. It offers some moisturization, making it suitable for replacing your morning facial oil.
Should I be cautious when using skincare products containing Vitamin C in the sun?
Typically, the Vitamin C levels in our products are not high enough to cause significant sun sensitivity. However, using sun protection, like our Sun Love or a clean sunscreen, is advisable for added safety.
Can dark spots completely disappear, or are they manageable with skincare products?
The outcome varies based on the type and depth of the dark spots. Some may fade over time with consistent use of targeted products, while others, especially those from extensive sun damage, might be more resistant to fading and may require more aggressive treatments.
What is the shelf life of these skincare products?
Most products have a shelf life of two years from their bottle date. To extend shelf life, consider storing excess products in the fridge. If a product smells or feels different, it’s advisable to discontinue use. There is also an expiration date on the bottom of all of our products.
