This is great news for the skin fanatics out there! Super facialist and wellness guru Marie Reynolds has launched her very first own-brand skincare. It’s a duo of skin finishing products that combine together to create what Marie terms as an “epidermal blanket” over the skin. Here’s the what you need to know about Marie Reynolds London Elixir and Reson8.
The new and very beautiful products are used to mimic the skin’s Natural Moisturising Factor (NMF) with the purpose of protecting, nourishing and rejuvenating skin’s delicate balance. The two products, Elixir and Reson8, are designed to be layered together and can be adapted for morning and evening use and also as a skin loving primer. Marie says it is the perfect finishing product.
Marie Reynolds London Elixir and Reson8 – 2 Stages
The two products, when combined, mimic the lipid barrier which gets damaged as a result of ageing and environmental stresses. The ‘epidermal blanket’ restores and protects.

The Copper Wand
The Marie Reynolds London Elixir and Reson8 kit comes with an absolutely beautiful (and naturally cold) copper wand which you use to work in unison with the topically applied products. Using the wand with the length flat against the face, you sweep outwards from the centre in a lifting motion. The highly antioxidant copper amplifies cellular energy, repairs damage and acts as an anti-inflammatory agent.
It feels AMAZING! There’s also a kit with a Quartz wand which heals and enhances regenerative growth, but I am all about the copper!
Everything has a vibration, including skin
Marie Reynolds isn’t just about applying products to the skin, but more working with the skin’s own frequency for optimum health and repair. It is all about vibration! Apparently, human beings vibrate, or resonate, at 528 MHz. Who knew?! Well, probably lots of scientists!
Marie says, ” Ingredients in both products were specifically chosen both for optimum hydration and nourishment and also their ability to ‘tune in’ to the human frequency. A gentle blend of three specific essential oils were chosen to tune in to mind, body and spirit. Rose in particular has the highest energy resonance, closest to human MHz. Along with Rose, Frankincense and Neroli were added to a blend, which raise the vibration for optimum benefits.”
Marie, the Therapist
If you have ever met Marie, you’ll know that she is very tuned in to human energy. She usually knows how I am feeling or what I am going to say before I say it. Generally when she places her hands on you, she can read what stresses your body and skin are under at that time. It’s kind of mind blowing. I have known her for so many years now that I am used to it, but I think some people can find it very surprising. She is like the magic sorceress of skincare.
Marie’s clients, me being one of them, have wanted her to come out with a skincare range for years, However, she says she has always been happy with the products she uses and endorses in her clinic, until she honed in on this gap in the market. The Epidermal Blanket is an adaptable skin finisher, that can be used on top of serums in a customisable combination and also as the most excellent makeup primer when used on its own.
I have been using the Marie Reynolds London Elixir and Reson8 duo for a couple of mornings and nights now and it’s just beautiful. The textures are stunning, the aromas are soothing and calming and the copper wand lifts and firms with ease. The combo layers perfectly over my NIOD serums I’m using right now and I can’t wait to try it as a primer.
What I love is that you can add the Epidermal Blanket into any skincare routine and you can use the copper wand alone any time you want to cool, soothe and calm the skin. The Marie Reynolds London Elixir and Reson8 kit with the copper is £160. The quartz wand kit is £115 and all the products can be purchased separately. If you are looking for something from a trusted skin guru that effectively treats and protects the skin whilst tuning into the your mind and body’s energy, then I can’t recommend this enough. Congratulations Marie on a product that’s almost as special as you are!
Marie is SO fussy about the products she uses and would never touch and certainly not put her name to anything she didn’t completely believe in. It’s standard I have complete faith in.
