"I use Marie Veronique products day and night. I recently got a facial from Kristina Holey that was really informative and helped hone in my regime."
"I wanted to take my passion to create a space where you can learn, try beautiful products, and change the way you think about what you’re using on your body.' Onda features curated products (only those that Thomson has tried and loved) from brands like Pai, African Botanics, Odacite, Marie Veronique, and [other] Australian faves..."
"It doesn't always seem like technology and green beauty are natural companions. So what happens when you mix equal amounts tech and beauty? You get the best (and most futuristic) products on the market."
"MV offers safe, innovative skincare products that achieve real and lasting results. The formulations are expertly developed using in-depth research, knowledge of industry trends, and resourcing the finest ingredients available."

"Based on a community-building ethos that seems to be echoed throughout the Bay Area beauty scene, the company aims for total transparency in its brand selection and educating customers to the concept of clean beauty. You’ll find products from established and locally-made In Fiore and Marie Veronique alongside emerging and similarly beloved brands like Kjaer Weis and African Botanícs."
"Her vision at Marie Veronique is to deliver superior, non-toxic skincare drawing on nature’s genius and the brain of science through innovative formulations. Achieving optimal skin health and healing real skin issues drive us to produce safe products that truly work."
"Science still figures prominently in her technique—appointments involve inquiries about diet, habits and psyche. This summer, Holey launched KH/MV Exclusive Solutions, her first trio of products, created in collaboration with natural-skin-care pioneer Marie Veronique."
"I was hooked. Like – wish I had the money to buy the company, hooked! In my life before MV, I would always have a monthly break-out (right around the time my hormones were surging), but once I started using MV those days were gone. Forever. I truly love MV and the way my skin has aged over the last six years."
"Most face scrubs are too much for my sensitive skin. With lactic acid, potato flour and a potpourri of essential oils, both my skin and my nose devour this weekly treat."
"I really love this Gentle Retinol Night Serum because it boosts collagen production, speeds up new cell turnover, and unclogs my pores which helps reduce the risk of blemishes."

"After a brand shake-up and return to Berkeley, Marie Veronique Nadeau is back with a new line, Pro Collection, and watchdog group, the Natural & Organic Monitor. Nadeau harnesses the latest research linking probiotics with acne and rosacea relief, incorporating the helpful digestive bacteria into skin-care products. Her Pre+Probiotic Daily Mist features 34 probiotic live strains, coconut water, sodium salicylate and licorice extract to help calm and refresh dry, irritated skin through the day."
"The Probiotic+Exfoliation Mask exfoliates gently, brightens up the skin (I've been using this pre-makeup), it hydrates and leaves the skin soft. I would define it a great refresher/renewing/brightening mask. I was previously using yogurt masks for this same result, but this takes it to a whole new level. Love this for a gentle exfoliation."
"For my face, I'm pretty devoted to Marie Veronique, which I discovered through this blog. My skin became so clear and glowing after I switched to her products."
