This light and refreshing cleanser has potent brightening properties, gently softens and renews the look of the skin. Unlike a lot of cleansers, this one doesn’t strip the skin, or leave you with tight, dry skin. I love it.
This is definitely luxe skincare at its best! I’ve been using facial oils for years, and this rich, decadent oil blend is at the top of my list. Not heavy or greasy, this earthy-smelling oil absorbs quickly and makes my skin feel amazing.
Another luxe product from Annmarie Skincare, this serum brightens, hydrates, and helps tone aging skin (hello mid 40’s). A tiny drop goes a long way but also has made my skin soft, even, and bright.
Not sure where to start? The Annmarie team has created a Clean Beauty Trial set; for dry, mature skin, oily skin, combination, and normal skin. This trial set is only $19.99, and is a great way to sample some of their best products. Plus, there’s no charge for shipping!
WHY I LOVE THIS COMPANY
I first stumbled on the Annmarie Skin Care products back around 2010-2011 when I was living in NYC and working part-time as a nanny while building my business. The kids I cared for lived on the Upper West Side, and smack on Amsterdam Ave, halfway between their house and their school was this amazing little raw food cafe/market.
They had a small selection of skincare stuff, and it was all really lovely. They had a sample sale running (I love me some sales!), and I randomly grabbed a few products, which happened to be Annmarie Skin Care.
They were luxurious and amazing, but then the store closed their skincare department, and I tried to find the products elsewhere with no luck. So I moved on.
Fast forward like 3+ years, and my former business coach emails me and says “Lara, you need to be connected to Kevin Gianni and what he and his wife are doing…”
We get introduced, Kevin and I Skype, and we end up shooting the breeze for over an hour; turns out we both grew up in CT, and have loads in common. It honestly wasn’t until I was ON THIS SKYPE CALL that I realized Kevin Gianni and the Annmarie Gianni skincare line were one in the same.
DUH. I felt pretty dumb.
I got to meet Kevin and Annmarie in person a few years back at a conference and have been fast friends since. When they’re in town, we always make sure to get together!
I’m sharing all this backstory with you because sometimes products can feel disconnected from the people that make them, and these are people that have HEART, and a strong mission to create amazing products.
If you’ve not yet stepped into the world of Annmarie Skincare, you definitely should!
MY INTERVIEW WITH KEVIN
I sat down to chat with Kevin about their products, what some of the problems are in the industry, and why they started a skincare line. Kevin talks about the disturbing discovering of intentional labeling fraud, preservatives in skin care, why the “don’t buy ingredients you cannot pronounce” mantra isn’t really that good, and two important ingredients to avoid!

3:29 – What inspired Kevin and Annmarie to create a skincare line after years of being in the health & wellness space?
