Jan Marini combines proven anti-aging and acne ingredients together in Duality, to provide users with the solution to fighting wrinkles and blemishes. Acne eliminating ingredients include an active 10% micronized benzoyl peroxide, peptide and all-trans-retinol to kill acne causing bacteria and prevent feature breakouts. A cocktail of medically backed peptides, hyaluronic acid, white tea extract, chrysin and bisabolol effectively combat and reverse the signs of aging. These two unparalleled skin care treatments significantly improve texture and tone, while being gentle enough for all skin types.
This review is for Jan Marini’s Duality face cream, which includes two different face products in one: an anti-acne cream and an anti-aging cream. Keep reading for more photos and my thoughts about the effectiveness of this skincare product.
This face cream comes in a silver, plastic bottle with two pumps. The packaging is opaque so the ingredients inside will be kept stable (away from sun exposure). The air-tight packaging will also keep the product sanitary.
The pumps aren’t the greatest quality. I found I had to depress one of them several times to get any product out. I also wish each side were labelled so that you knew which was the anti-aging side and which was the anti-acne side.
One side of this product has an anti-acne cream with 10% Benzoyl Peroxide. This ingredient kills the bacteria that causes acne. On the other side, the anti-aging cream contains antioxidants and retinol. The cream is also moisturizing. Both sides are fragrance-free and free of other irritating ingredients.
The benzoyl peroxide can dry out your skin, so the moisturizing anti-aging side of this product can help counter-act that effect. But, even though this product is packaged in a way that suggests you should pump out and use both creams at the same time, I’d use the anti-acne cream before you apply the anti-aging cream. Let the anti-acne cream work for at least 10 minutes before applying the anti-aging side. Or, use one side in the morning and the other at night.
