If irritation develops discontinue use and consult a physician. Keep in a cool place out of direct sunlight.
"A lot of people ask me to suggest a product that helps with hyperpigmentation and evening out skin tones, so this serum would be a great place to start...designed to firm and moisturize skin, lighten dark circles and overall even out your skin’s imperfections. The Vitamin C in this reduces hyperpigmentation by inhibiting tyrosinase, the Uva Ursi lightens skin naturally and the Centrophenoxine dissolves age spots by dissolving lipofuscin."
"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."
"The non-toxic formulas are rooted in science. Chemist Marie and bio-medical engineer daughter Jay collaborate on all formulas. "
"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."
"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."
