Review: m61 Skincare... #m61Skincare

(product photos courtesy of www.m61labs.com)

I received 4 products from m61 powerful skincare to try out. Lets say they are very powerful. I noticed a difference almost immediately with this stuff. That's due to all of the AHAs used in the products. 

8.4 fl.oz./250mL $34.00
This is a great cleanser for anyone who is in need of a new cleansing routine. It is a pore, purifying glycolic cleanser with tea tree an Vitamin B5. It is gluten-free and vegan. The cleanser is a sulfate-free gel cleanser formulated to wash away dirt, makeup and excess oil without stripping the moisture barrier away. Glycolic acid removes dead surface skin cells and cleanses pores (actually the hair follicles) to help remove bacteria and leave the skin feeling soft. Tea tree extract helps improve the look of blemish-prone skin. This cleanser is best used on combination and oily skins worried about breakouts. It can also be used for mature skin clients who want a deep exfoliating cleanser. 



To use: Gently lather a small amount of cleanser in moistened hand and apply to face and throat. Massage over face to cleanse skin. Rinse with warm water.



This cleanser is absolutely amazing. For a cleanser with such a high content of glycolic acid , it leaves skin incredibly soft and luminous. The skin's own natural moisture barrier is not broken nor marred in any way, which is hard to do with a a cleanser of this nature. Also, it leaves skin feeling so soft and breakouts are just about gone with this. That is if our breakouts are of the mild kind. If you have breakouts that are of the moderate to severe kind you will likely need to seek other care. Use this with other m-61 products. 


The m-61 Power Cleanse Pore Purifying Glycolic Face Cleanser is available on www.m61labs.com. They have an abundance of products and lines to fit every skin type and need.

10 Treatments Per Box/$28
30 Treatments Per Box/$62
60 Treatments Per Box/$110
These peel pads are quick glycolic and salicylic acid exfoliating peel pads with Vitamin K, billberry and chamomile. They are vegan. The Vitamin K helps to reduce the appearance of spider veins and combats dry, rosacea-like patches. Glycolic and salicylic acid help reduce pore size, reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve the skin’s tone, texture and clarity.
Antioxidant bilberry extract helps promote an even skin tone, while chamomile and lavender assist in calming and soothing irritation. This is best for the kind of customer who has dull or dry skin, is worried about wrinkles or hyperpigmentation and/or is experiencing breakouts. Marla loves this pre-makeup and pre-moisturizer before a very important event for a radiant glow. She also loves it for hormone related breakouts, which she seems to get.

How to use it: Apply peel (a pre-soaked towelette) to clean, dry skin. Gently move over face and neck while avoiding eye area. Do not rinse off. It is Recommended to start 3 times a week and build  up to using every day. 

I love, just love these peel pads. I love anything with AHAs and BHAs in it. They are the most helpful anti-aging ingredients that we have available to us so we need to use them. The stronger the better as it causes injury to the skin which causes it to make collagen. 


Hydraboost Line Booster
1.7 fl.oz./50mL $78.00

Coming Soon, this proprietrary super cocktail of seven powerful peptides, glycolic acid and Vitamin C works together to plump and reduces the appearance of lines on the neck, chin and jaw line, around the lip area and on the forehead. Vitamin B5 and hyaluronic acid plump and replenish the skin’s moisture level.Vitamin C targets dull skin to create a radiant complexion, promoting skin
elasticity and guarding the skin from environmental stressors.

Natural tamarind improves elasticity and hydrates while aloe and centella
asiatica soothe and moisturize.
Tamarind Seed Extract has been found to increase the efficiency of wound healing. Tamarind Seed Extract significantly improves skin elasticity, hydration and smoothness. In one recent study, Tamarind Seed Extract was found to outperform Hyaluronic Acid in
skin moisturization and the smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles.

Aloe vera has been used topically for thousands of years to treat wounds, skin infections, burns, and numerous other dermatologic conditions.
One study has shown that aloe vera gel exhibited greater anti-inflammatory
benefits to inflamed skin than hydrocortisone cream.

Aloe vera is often recommended for acne scarring and wound healing, as it increases both the synthesis of collagen and the production of hyaluronic acid in skin.

Marla, the owner and founder of m61,  wanted to create a nonsticky, line-reducing neck serum that wouldn’t cause breakouts. During development of the
product, she discovered that her breakthrough formula delivered the same plumping and hydrating benefits to not only the neck, but to
facial lines also. The success of the best-selling Hydraboost family inspired her to create the Hydraboost Line Reducer. Its formula has the
same core as the other best-selling Hydraboost products but she’s upped the plumping and hydrating benefits even more by adding a
supercharged blend of seven multi-action peptides to fill in and reduce the visible appearance of deep set wrinkles and fine lines.

Who Should Be Using This: For the person who is looking to plump, hydrate and fill in deep set wrinkles on the neck, jawline, upper lip, forehead and the outer corner of the eyes.

How To Use: After cleansing and drying the skin, apply 2-4 pumps onto your fingertips and apply to the face and neck. If needed, follow with a moisturizer.

This moisturizes so well, in the spring and summer months you may not need another moisturizer. It acts as more than a serum. It is a moisturizing primer that helps to get skin ready to accept moisture and hydration. 

PowerGlow Moisturizer
1.7 fl.oz./50mL $72.00
Also coming soon, this radiant glow moisturizer provides exfoliation, resurfaces, clarifies and helps to firm the skin. Glycolic and salicylic acid help reduce pore size,reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve the skin’s tone, texture
and clarity. 

Vitamin K helps reduce the appearance of spider veins and combats dry,rosacea-like patches. Antioxidant bilberry extract helps promote an even skin tone while chamomile, lavender, and aloe assist in calming and soothing irritation. Bilberry is a shrub found in the mountains of Europe and North America. It isrelated to the North America’s blueberry and huckleberry.
Rich in procyanidins, these anti-oxidant free-radical scavengers have shown to
reduce inflammation.
Chamomile contains flavonoid and essential oils that possess significant antiinflammatoryand anti-allergy activity. Chamomile functions as an antimicrobial, antiallergic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and analgesic and was approved by the German Commission E for inflammatory mucocutaneous diseases and wound and burn therapy. Aloe vera has been used topically for thousands of years to treat wounds, skin infections,burns, and numerous other dermatologic conditions. One study has shown that aloe vera gel exhibited greater anti-inflammatory benefits to inflamed skin than hydrocortisone cream. Aloe vera is often recommended for acne scarring and wound healing, as it increases both the synthesis of collagen and the production of hyaluronic acid in skin. Lavender is useful against anti-fungal infections. New studies show that lavender extract increases relaxation during cosmetic procedures. 

Glycolic acid promotes the reduction of wrinkles, acne scarring, and
hyperpigmentation, while improving many other skin conditions, including actinic keratosis, hyperkeratosis, and seborrheic keratosis. Glycolic acid reacts with the upper layer of the epidermis, weakening the binding properties of the lipids that hold the dead skin cells together. This allows the stratum corneum to be exfoliated, exposing live skin cells.
Salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid. Beta hydroxy acid is able to penetrate into the pore which contains sebum and exfoliate the dead skin cells that are built up inside the pore. Vitamin K helps clear bruises and improve the appearance of skin. Reduces facial discoloration caused by poor circulation, skin irritation and scarring. Topical vitamin K is often used as a facial remedy for clearing bruises and improving the appearance of skin. The American Cancer Society reports that vitamin K creams are also used by individuals wishing to reduce facial discoloration caused by poor circulation, skin irritation and scarring. A study titled “Effects of topical vitamin K and retinol on laser-induced purpura on nonlesional skin” published in the “Journal of Dermatologic Surgery” evaluated the effectiveness of vitamin K cream. Researchers applied topical vitamin K on the faces of patients suffering from purpura or colored patches that occur on skin due to surgery. The results indicated that vitamin K cream significantly reduced facial bruising associated with laser surgery.

Marla was seeking a resurfacing glycolic moisturizer to exfoliate, clarify and help firm the skin. The best-selling PowerGlow® Peel has been so successful that she wanted to create the same radiance-boosting benefits in the form of a facial moisturizer. The PowerGlow® Moisturizer helps reduce pore size and the appearance of fine lines while creating a youthful glow. Anti-inflammatories like
chamomile and lavender instantly soothe skin after the glycolic and salicylic acids slough off dry skin cells.  
 
Who Should Be Using: For the person who has dull or dry skin, is worried about wrinkles or hyperpigmentation and/or is experiencing breakouts. Marla loves this moisturizer on its own and under makeup for a radiant glow. She also loves it for when she’s experiencing hormone-related breakouts.

USAGE Apply to clean, dry skin after cleansing and/or serum. Use a PowerGlow®Peel prior to applying PowerGlow® Moisturizer for added benefits. Day and/or night.

I just absolutely love this product. Great when my skin is acting oily. It works well with the peel pads. This is more for oilier skins but can be used with the Hydraboost Line Reducer. Just use that first then follow with the moisturizer.

Currently all products are avaialable online at www.m61labs.com

Until Next Time~
