MLA is a high performing anti-aging collection created by national renown cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Mary Lee Amerian. Dr. Amerian, who practices in California, has been voted one of the “Best Doctors in America”. She created MLA Skincare with the goal of being “powerful yet gentle” because she wanted everyone, of all skin types to tackle every day skin issues without irritation. Besides fighting wrinkles, redness and brown spots, MLA Skincare products were made to rejuvenate and protect skin from further damage.
The MLA collection includes:
- Power Cream
- Multivitamin Serum
- Brightening Serum
- Soothing Serum
- Eye Serum
Each product is highly concentrated and contains ingredients like Vitamin A, Vitamin C, berry extracts, Coenzyme Q10 and plant extracts, that are designed to work together and be layered on the skin.
How It Feels
The serums are lightweight and have a soft scent. Even the Power Cream easily absorbed into my skin, which was nice for applying makeup or bronzer afterwards. A small amount of serum went a long way once I start massaging it in, which made the product last longer than expected.
MLA isn’t made with harsh ingredients like Retin-A or alpha hydroxy acids so after days of use my skin never burned or sting. Most skin lighteners use hydroquinone, which can make skin sensitive to the sun. I liked that MLA’s Brightening Serum doesn’t contain hydroquinone because I didn’t have any concerns of getting sunburn when I went to the beach or pool.
I’m very fond of all the MLA products, but my favorites were Multivitamin Serum and the Brightening Serum. I never had any irritation or peeling which can happen with many strong anti-aging serums. After a month of use, I noticed my skin looked and felt smoother. The Brightening Serum made small discolorations from blemishes lighter and less noticeable. My eyes looked less puffier just after a few days of applying the Eye Serum.
Overall, MLA is a safe anti-aging line for everyone. I think it’s perfect to use at any age because it’s not abrasive and it has vitamin compounds in each product that made my skin look more radiant and plump. Makeup glided over the serums very well, my pores never felt clogged and when I was in the heat, it didn’t feel like the products were melting off. My only complaint is that MLA Skincare doesn’t have a vitamin cleanser.
