I was provided complementary product in exchange for this honest review. All opinions expressed are mine, and 100% authentic as always!
When I was 11 years old, I remember my step-mom hammering me on the importance of skin care later in life. As an 11 year old, I clearly could not care less about washing my face (and wrinkles were only for old people anyway). Now that I’m 30, (sleeping much less than I did in my adolescence) and fairly confident that my sweet baby girls have stolen my beauty throughout 2 pregnancies, I am 100% on board with clinging to my youth through skincare.
On my never ending quest for the fountain of youth, I jumped at the chance to partner with Lavelier Skincare on their Marine Essentials Collection. Their unique formula features antioxidant-rich Corallina Officinalis (Coral Seaweed) known for it’s ability to rejuvenate and re-energize (two things my very tired skin is in need of) and their products are perfect for all skin-types. Full disclosure, this is a splurge product, but one that I’ve found is worth it’s price tag for anyone looking to stop Father Time in his tracks.
Now that I’ve incorporated the Marine Essentials Collection into my daily routine, I’m so excited to share my experience with you!
The Marine Essentials Collection consists of eight skincare products:
- The Biology Mousse Cleanser, to cleanse and refresh your skin.
- The Intensive Facial Peel, to gently exfoliate skin.
- The Nourishing Night Serum + Vitamin C, to help even out skin tone.
- The Fine Line Eye Serum, for a more contoured eye area.
- The Eye Firming Concentrate, for a firmer and plumper feel.
- The Marine Deep Moisturizer, for softer and smoother skin.
- The Advanced Marine Bio-Syringe, for a deep and effective wrinkle solution.
- The Marine Evening Repair Cream, to firm and plump while retaining the skin’s moisture levels
First Impression: Pure luxury! The packaging alone was enough to make me swoon, and between the boxing and the skincare containers themselves, I was already excited to wash my face. The smell of the products is that of a fine luxury line, and was so light and elegant. (I imagine this is what Kate Middleton’s face smells like). This is absolutely a high-end line, and from first glance it absolutely fits that bill.
The cleanser has a thicker consistency, and requires only a small amount for a good lather. A dollop the size of a penny is a good amount for me to work into a lather with water, to cover and clean my entire face. Learn more about the Biology Mousse Cleanser HERE
After cleansing, I follow up with the Eye Firming Concentrate by tapping a very small amount of product around my eye area. I was very happy to find that a little goes a long way and the amount of product that comes in the jar will be sure to last! Learn more about the Eye Firming Concentrate HERE
Step 3 on my journey to baby bottom skin is the Marine Deep Moisturizer. I found this to be a very light moisturizer, which I love for morning application under my makeup. This moisturizer has that fabulous Princess smell I was talking about, and I’ve fallen in love. After these 3 steps my skin is left feeling SO soft and I’ve found myself on more than one occasion petting my sweet soft face (in a completely normal way).

Before bed, I incorporate the Marine Evening Repair Cream into my routine (following the same steps above, with the exception of the Marine Deep Moisturizer). This has easily become my favorite product, and unlike some other night creams I’ve tried in the past, it is light (much like the moisturizer) and doesn’t feel thick on my face while I’m sleeping. A nighttime routine is something I’ve come to appreciate SO much over the past 2 years, and as I’ve talked about in previous posts-I truly believe a cleansed face has contributed to reduced swelling in my face throughout this second pregnancy. When I wake up in the morning I’ve been able to see a visible difference in my face…major bonus points for this product!
Along with the Marine Evening Repair Cream, the Eye Firming Concentrate is another show stopper for me. I feel like I can tell a difference in my skin almost instantly, and over the past few weeks of using the Eye Firming Concentrate I have noticed a visible difference in the wrinkles (and puffiness!) around my eyes. The Firming Eye Concentrate is a new mama must have in my opinion!
Bottom Line: This is a high-end luxury skincare brand with a splurge-worthy price tag. With that being said, the results (fast results, I might add!), scientific backing behind the ingredients, and volume of product coupled with the small amount needed, all make the Marine Essentials Collection by Lavelier Skincare an investment into soft, luxe, and youthful skin.
