REVIEW: M2 Skin Refinish

To start with, let me share this information from the M2 website:

M2 Skin Refinish 20%
Eliminate all your skin care woes with one easy-to-use serum. This multi-purpose face treatment uses a high-potency combination of Mandelic and Malic Acids to rapidly even skin tone, reduce breakouts, and soften wrinkles. 50 ml.
In the evening, apply to clean, dry skin. Wait 10-15 minutes before applying moisturizer. Use only every other night for the first two months. If irritation or excess flaking occurs, decrease frequency of application or discontinue use. Daily use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30 is required for best results.
Water, Mandelic Acid, Malic Acid, Algae Extract, PEG-8/SMDI Copolymer, Potassium Hydroxide, Artemisia Vulgaris Extract, Polysorbate 60, Isohexadecane, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Ubiquinone, Hyaluronic Acid, Corallina Officinalis Extract, Squalane, Cyclopentasiloxane, Polyacrylate, Dimethicone, Tetrasodium EDTA


Here we go, M2 Skin Refinish, formerly known as Mama Lotion, claims to reduce blemishes, wrinkles, pigmentation, etc. I've been seeing a lot of raves about it, here and abroad. This product is being carried only by one distributor (Jeuness) here in the Philippines and I dont know where and how they're selling it. But you can always order it through people who takes pre-order stuff from US and maybe you can check some online stores. 

This review is kinda late though, I finished my bottle 6months ago but I still wanna share my experience to you.

I was one of the lucky people who bought this for half the price and who has a perfectly working pump. If you would read other users' reviews, you'll notice that most of them complains about the pump. HAHAHA! Anyway, the first time I used it, I was soooo anxious I wanna see the results right away so I applied it 3x a day for 2 days. TeeHee! My skin went dry. I had to skip two days before I could use it again. So when I started using it again, I did it once a day before my moisturizer, and was it better! My face was always smooth and fresh, like waking up to a new skin everyday. Makeup looked better too. I had blemishes and scars from the breakout and that's what I was concerned about. It didn't clear my blemishes, nor it did lighten my scars, but my pores are always clean and it prevented me from having future breakouts. I also tried using it before OLAY Total Effects (a sample I got from my makeup class) and they were PERFECT together. Better than my usual moisturizer (was using Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion). However I do not recommend you to use M2 everyday, as per manufacturer's instruction. Apply it once a day, twice a week. If you're gonna ask if I'm gonna repurchase this again, HELL YES. I love waking up to a smoother skin everyday.
