There’s no denying I’m a huge fan of Dr. Vermen Verallo-Rowell’s line of products, VMV Hypoallergenics, with categories range from sun and light protection, to makeup, bath and body, skin care, men, baby, and more. I love using her Know-it-Oil, VCO (virgin coconut oil) as an all-over moisturizer, which comes in as a close second to my love of olive oil as a beauty product. I recently attended an information luncheon on her newest products at her gorgeous Union Square store and spa, and here are the newest items from the line. Tell your skin issues their days are numbered-help is on the way!
Note: even if you don’t live in NYC, you can shop VMV Hypoallergenics 24/7 online!
