Bluemercury M-61

Blue Mercury M-61

I first discovered Bluemercury when I lived in Charleston, SC and was on the hunt for a skincare and makeup shop since there’s no Sephora in the city. Count me as a fan ever since! Atlanta has a Bluemercury and it’s so much easier than fighting the mall traffic when you are just running in for a few things. I’ve been eager to try their M-61 line that was created by Bluemercury co-founder Marla Malcolm and have rounded up a few favorites that I’ve tried so far. These products are made without parabens, sulfates, dyes or synthetic fragrances and truly get the job done.

M-61 Fast Blast- Makeup Remover

M-61 Fast Blast: There are days when I love a good, leisurely mask that you leave on for 30 minutes and just relax. There are also times when I need a mask that will get the job done quickly. I’m a huge fan of brightening and vitamin C products since they’re so good for your skin! I typically use this 1-2 times a week after cleansing my face and I’ve loved the results. Who doesn’t have 2 minutes to brighten and refresh their skin? Put this on while you make your morning cup of coffee or at night while you brush your teeth. Easily a favorite new mask of mine and one I highly recommend!

M-61 SuperSoothe E Makeup Remover: While I love Bioderma, I’ve been searching for a great makeup remover that was gentle yet effective (and can be easily found stateside!). This SuperSoothe E remover from Blue Mercury works so well! My favorite mascara can be hard for most removers to get off, but this one easily removes all traces of eye makeup and doesn’t have me loosing eye lashes from rubbing too hard. The vitamin E in it nourishes the skin while the aloe, licorice root and cucumber cool the skin.

Vitablast C Hand: Now that cooler temperatures are on the horizon, I’m trying to be better about keeping my hands moisturized. Enter flu season and I’m a freak about washing my hands countless times a day to avoid getting sick. The result of that is dry hands. I keep this little bottle in my bedside table and always put it on before bed. It hydrates but doesn’t leave you feeling oily. Bonus- it smells delicious! I’ve also been tossing this in my carry on for pre-flight moisturizing.

M-61 SuperSoothe E Microdermabrasion Scrub: Leading up to the wedding I made it a priority to get microdermabrasion done once a month. It is so so good for your skin and helps improve the overall appearance, fighting fine lines, sun spots and discoloration. This gentle scrub is a great at home option and one I also use 1-2 times a week depending on what my skin needs. This one is 100% paraben and synthetic fragrance free.

M-61 PowerSpot: I’ve finally mastered a skincare routine that helps keep blemishes at bay, but there are still a few pesky ones that pop up. Dab a q-tip in the bottle and place on your blemish after washing your face and before bed. It’ll dry overnight and you wash it off the next morning. This has been a huge help in minimizing any breakouts that occur and I found it actually works better than one I’ve tried in the past. You may feel a little funky going to bed with white spots around your face, but it beats walking around with tons of blemishes the next day!

M-61 Power Glow Peel: (not pictured) This may just be my favorite item so far. Most people shy away at the thought of a peel (ah! my skin will peel off and it’ll burn!), but just like microderm, I made it a priority to get a mild peel monthly before the wedding. I use this after cleansing and to help with uneven skin tone, exfoliation and firming the skin. Wipe the towelette over your face and neck and leave on overnight. I can’t sing enough praises for these wipes! Your face won’t melt off, don’t worry.

    Bluemercury is my favorite makeup/skincare spot in Charleston. I used the M61 face was for a while and I LOVED it. Such a great line!!

    These sound like such great products! We have a Blue Mercury walking distance from our apartment and it is one of my favorite stores! They carry everything you need for skincare!

    I need to try these! They sound awesome and the prices look to reasonable.

    I need to try blue mercury. I keep shopping on line because Lenox overwhelms me. Ulta works sometimes, but I feel like their brand selection has gone down.

    There is a Bluemercury down the street from where I work and I always buy my makeup there. 🙂 I’ll have to check out this skin care line the next time that I’m there too. Thank you for sharing and I hope that you had a great weekend! 🙂

    I cannot say enough good things about the M-61 line. Every time I bring a friend with me to Bluemercury I force them to try a sample of the power glow peel. It is honestly one of the most remarkable products I’ve ever used. Shows instant results and has lsating ones as well. Can’t wait to try a few of the other ones you spotlighted.

    I love Blue Mercury, such a different atmosphere from Sephora. I have to try this line, I am always on the lookout for great products made without harsh chemicals!

    I’ve never heard of this brand! I might have to try one of the products!

    You have me sold by the makeup remover that you don’t lose eyelashes to. That is my biggest pet peeve with so many removers I end up losing lashes in the process. This line looks amazing! Thanks for the introduction!

    I’ve been itching to try M-61! How often do you use the Power Glow Peels? I need to up my skincare regime for the big day 🙂

    This line looks great. I walk by BlueMercury all the time, but never knew they had their own line. I’ve been needing some sort of exfoliant, I’m going to check out the microdermabrasion scrub. Thanks!

    I had no idea that BlueMercury had their own line. I love that store. Totally need to check this out. Great review.

    I’ve never heard of this line, but would love to try out the Glow Peel! Definitely need to check this out 🙂

    I’ve never tried blue mercury before, but it looks great! I need to get my hands on that M-61 line!

  19. August 31, 2015 / 9:18 pm

    I haven’t heard of that brand before but the glow peel sounds worth a try.
