Monarch Brow & Facial Studio is now selling the original MAMA lotion from M2 Skincare. I LOVE this product because you can feel and see the results immediately. Most of the serum/cream exfoliators I sample leave the skin dry, flaky, and irritated after continued use. Not the MAMA! When applied on clean, damp skin at night, the skin is hydrated and smoother in the morning. Continued use can result in a little normal, occasional peeling, however the MAMA serum is very well tolerated by sensitive and sensitized skins. I rarely see this product giving people any issues. In fact, mandelic acid is great for soothing the usual erythema, or blotchy redness, that comes with anti-aging skin peeling products.
For oily skin, this product might be all you need at night. The folks with drier skin can layer moisturizer over the MAMA and enjoy extra hydration power.
If you’re on one of those people who has trouble with Retin-A, this product is for you. We all need more cell turnover as we age in order to keep skin clear and bright, however prescription products can be too much for certain skin types. The M2 MAMA utilizes Malic and Mandelic Acids (MAMA, for short) to increase the cell turnover by breaking the protein bonds on the outermost layer of the epidermis, revealing fresher, brighter skin cells.
Increased cell turnover also helps clear acne and congested pores, smooths the pores for more even texture, and softens fine lines.
This original favorite is formulated in an algae extract base and packed with Ubiquinone, also known as Coenzyme Q10, to neutralize free radicals. Ubiquinone is rated as a “best” ingredient by Paula Begoun, the Cosmetic Cop, because of it’s soothing nature. The highly hydrating, olive-derived oil known as Squalane completes the base of this gel lotion.
Here’s a run down of the fantastic benefits of MAMA’s star ingredients:
Mandelic Acid: from the bitter almond, gentle exfoliator, pigment lightening, antibacterial
Malic Acid: from apples and grapes, gentle exfoliator, pigment lightening, pH buffering
Algae Extract: water-binding, soothing, antioxidant, emollient
Ubiquinone (Coenzyme q10): antioxidant, cell energizer
Squalane: from olives, intrinsic hydrator, scar diminishing, excess oil reducing, ideal delivery base
If you’re looking for a powerhouse antioxidant and gentle exfoliator in one, look no further. M2’s original MAMA is a five star product formulated to work on nearly all skin types and conditions.
