The French cosmetics giant paid nearly eight times the brand's combined annual revenue of $168 million.

AcneFree provides acne treatments and skin cleansers while Ambi makes products to treat dark spots and brighten skin.

L'Oreal said the three brands would be stand alongside the likes of Vichy and La Roche-Posay in its Active Cosmetics division, which is among its strongest in terms of growth and resilience to slowdowns in consumer spending in the past three to four years.
