Apply a teaspoon of mask to cleansed skin, avoiding eye area. Leave on 3 to 5 minutes. If skin becomes irritated, remove after 2 minutes.

"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. "
"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."
"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."
"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."
