Merle Norman Age-Defying Serum Overview
According to the press release that accompanied this product in its debut, Merle Norman Age-Defying Serum is an age prevention product for the “sunscreen” generation. By this, they mean it’s for women in their 20s and 30s who’ve grown up knowing the dangers of too much sun. They’ve worn sunscreen religiously since they were kids, and it is just now that they are beginning to see the effects of time, and are looking for products to prevent them.
Merle Norman Age-Defying Serum is oil-free and non-comedogenic, perfect for this younger generation. While the expected benefits are not specifically stated beyond providing defense against fine lines, it is clear that this product is all about preventing the effects of age and the environment from acting on your skin.
Merle Norman Age-Defying Serum is so full of vitamins that the marketing materials call it a twice daily supplement. The main ingredient is called Prevention+ Vitamin Complex. What it is is a vitamin and antioxidant packed cocktail that includes Green Tea, Pomegranate, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. These are all well established as potent antioxidants in the fight against free radical damage caused by time and the environment.
The water based serum also contains Peptides for collagen production, Retinyl Palmitate for skin cell regeneration, and Botanical Extracts for hydration, smoothing, and softening. It is recommended that you use it twice a day, morning and night, after cleansing and toning. If you need more hydration, you should apply moisturizer over Merle Norman Age-Defying Serum. If your skin type tends more toward oily or combination, just the serum may be enough.
