Annmarie Skin Care Cleansers
What are the different cleansers available in the Annmarie Skin Care line?
Can the cleansers be mixed together?
It’s not necessary to mix our cleansers, as each one serves a different purpose. It’s better to use them separately for optimal benefits.
Which cleanser is best for large pores and combination skin?
Our Citrus Mint Cleanser, an herb-infused gel cleanser that is pH-balanced, is recommended for large pores and combination skin, but personal preference and how the product works for an individual also matter.
What is the Renew Cleanser?
The Renew Cleanser is a part of the Essentials Collection. It’s a simpler option for those new to our skin care line (or perhaps clean beauty in general), but it also works as a great option for those with sensitive skin due to its minimal ingredient formulation. This entry line is also offered at a slightly lower price point compared to our Signature and Wild Alchemy collections.
Annmarie Skin Care Toning Mists
What is the purpose of the toning mist in the skin care routine?
In conventional skin care routines, toning mists typically serve as a step to rebalance the skin’s pH, especially when harsh cleansers are in use that strip the skin’s natural oils. However, the cleansers in our line are formulated to be effective, yet gentle and pH-balanced. Thus, in an Annmarie Skin Care routine, the toning mist acts as a vehicle for better serum absorption into the skin, providing nutrition and hydration. Our toning mists can also help control the skin’s natural oils for oily or congested skin.
Which toning mist is recommended for oily and congested skin?
The Rosemary Toning Mist is recommended for oily and congested skin, helping to control oil and address clogged pores.
What is the Neroli Toning Mist?
The Neroli Toning Mist is another Signature line toning mist option in our skin care line with an orange blossom scent, providing benefits for the skin.
What are the key ingredients in the Neroli blend?
The Neroli blend includes aloe vera juice, neroli essential oil, and aspen bark.
What are the benefits of Neroli essential oil in the blend?
Neroli helps soften the appearance of fine lines and has an uplifting, bright orange floral scent profile.
How should the toning mists be used?
After cleansing, mist generously on skin before applying serum and oil for better absorption and a plump, healthy skin feel.
Annmarie Skin Care Serums & Elixirs
How are serums different from oils, and what are their benefits?
Serums are aqueous-based solutions, concentrated with high levels of activated ingredients, that penetrate more deeply into the skin due to their smaller molecular weight. Oils, on the otherhand, act as a moisturizing barrier on the skin’s top layer. They work together to target specific skin concerns and achieve optimal hydration and moisture levels.
What are the different serums available in your line, and what are their uses?
The serums we carry are: Anti-Aging Serum, Citrus Stem Cell Serum, Probiotic Serum With Tremella, Wild Fruit Serum, and Activated CBD Serum—each catering to specific skin concerns like anti-aging, brightening, and balancing.
What are the Concentrated Boosting Elixirs, and how should they be used?
The Concentrated Boosting Elixirs are potent actives meant to boost or supercharge specific aspects of your skin care routine. What makes our elixirs different than popular actives on the market is the combination of uncompromised quality, safety, and efficacy. You’ll see these popular ingredient superheroes everywhere nowadays, but also hear about the issues that come with them—like vitamin C oxidating too quickly or irritating sensitive skin, or retinol usage putting your reproductive health at risk (while also accentuating aging in the long run). With our Concentrated Boosting Elixirs, you can rest assured knowing they are MADE SAFE approved while still giving you all the results you want for your skin. The application is simple: you only need 1-3 drops and they should be mixed into serums or oils for optimal results.
Can “Revitalize” be used more sparingly than suggested in the product line?
“Revitalize” can be used more sparingly, like once a week, if you prefer.
Annmarie Skin Care Moisturizers
Can you mix and dilute the Rejuvenating Facial Oil if it feels too intense for the skin?
Do the serum and oil replace the need for a separate moisturizer?
The serum is a hydrator and the oil is a moisturizer (and both should be used in an anti-aging routine), which replaces the need for separate lotions or creams.
Is there a transition period when replacing a cream moisturizer with a facial oil?
There may be a transition period when starting to use a facial oil as a moisturizer, and breakouts or dryness are normal during this adjustment period. However, issues should not persist for more than a few weeks. You’ll also want to make sure you are using the proper moisturizer for your skin type. For example, we offer several different facial oils specifically formulated for various skin types, ranging from richer oils to ones that are lighter weight.
Do you have moisturizing lip products, and when should they be used?
Yes! Our Antioxidant Lip Balm is formulated with deeply nourishing cocoa butter and can be used any time of day.
Annmarie Skin Care Eye Care
What are the benefits of the Fruit Ceramide Eye Serum and the Anti-Aging Eye Cream?
Is an eye serum necessary in the skin care routine?
Compared to the other general steps in a routine (like cleansing or moisturizing), an eye serum is optional and depends on individual concerns and preferences.
Is it better to use an eye cream or an eye serum?
Both eye cream and eye serum can be used, but if choosing one, eye cream is recommended.
How should eye products be applied around the eyes?
Eye products should be applied all around the orbital bone.
Annmarie Skin Care Sunscreen (Sun Protection)
How does the Sun Love sunscreen wear under makeup?
Sun Love sunscreen wears nicely under makeup, providing a healthy glow. Unlike other mineral-based sunscreens that leave a chalky residuue, our Sun Love has a lightweight texture and applies sheer, which makes it a great base for makeup applications.
Is sunscreen essential in the morning routine?
Sunscreen is important and should be applied daily in the morning.
Is the sunscreen waterproof?
The Sun Love sunscreen is not waterproof, so reapplication is needed after swimming or sweating.
Annmarie Skin Care Masks & Scrubs
How can masks and scrubs be incorporated into the skin care routine?
Masks and scrubs should be used as needed, ranging from 1-4x a week (depending on the product and the individual’s skin). These products are not typically used on a daily basis.
How long should masks be left on the face?
Masks should be left on for the specified duration depending on the type of mask. For example, the Purifying Mud Mask may be kept on for just a few minutes, while the Illuminating Pearl Mask can stay on for up to a few hours.
General Product & Routine Education
Is it necessary to use all of the different skin care products in your product line? How can you incorporate the skin care products into a shorter morning routine?
Using all of the products is a best-case scenario; we understand that life can get busy. Adjustments can easily be made based on time constraints and individual needs. For example, maybe your morning routine is simpler with just a cleanser, serum, facial oil, and SPF. If you’re totally pressed for time, you can even skip the facial oil and use Sun Love sunscreen in its place, due to its moisturizing formula.
Which product is best for addressing aging on the neck area?
For aging on the neck area, both the serum and moisturizer can be used or consider the Radiant Skin Silk.
