I have been testing out several Lumavera products for a month, and would love to share with you my thoughts. The first thing I have to mention is the presentation. I was sent a lovely package with lots of information on each product. If you read my blog regularly, you know I am an ingredients nerd, and want to know what is in everything I use. Secondly, the bottles are gorgeous! They are by far the prettiest in my skin care arsenal!
Here’s what I tried from the Lumavera line:
Cleansing Gel 1.7 fl oz $38
This lightweight, extra gentle cleanser purifies as it hydrates skin. Rinses away impurities, leaves skin feeling soft and refreshed. Excellent for sensitive skin.
- Soap and fragrance free
- Antioxidant blend nourishes skin while protecting from free radical damage.
- Beautiful, naturally derived scent
Key ingredients:PhytoCellTec Argan (plant stem cells), Olive Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Prickly Pear/Nopal, Lumavera’s special Veggie Blend and Plant Blend.
You may be wondering what some of those ingredients are, so here’s a break down: PhytoCellTec Argan is made up of plant stem cells. This ingredient helps fight and minimize wrinkles, firms sagging skin, and plumps skin. The Veggie Blend is made up of broccoli sprout cell extract, tomato, carrot, spinach, kale, brussels sprouts and onion. All contain high concentration of anti oxidants to fight against free radical damage. Vitamins A & C provide anti aging benefits. The Plant Blend contains grape seed, licorice root, comfrey, green tea, grapefruit, calendula, lemon and orange extract. This cocktail fights free radical damage and helps to brighten skin.
This has quickly become my go-to nightly cleanser. I remove my makeup with Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm, then use this. I love that it goes from a gel to milk cleanser. My face feels soft and clean, never dry and tight. It’s not a huge bottle by any means, but I use very little product to wash my face with. It seems to be lasting longer than I expected.
Glycolic Night Cream 1.7fl oz $80
Our Glycolic Night Cream is a skin renewal treatment for nighttime. This lightweight cream refines pores using a powerful cocktail of botanicals and skin firming ingredients that minimize the appearance of wrinkles while bringing new clarity to the skin. The antioxidants from Green Tea Leaf Extract and Algae Extract work to protect skin from the damaging effects of free radicals. Grapefruit and Tangerine Extract lend a brightening action to even out skin tone.
Key ingredients: 10% Glycolic Acid, PhytoCellTec Argan, Peptides, Collagen, Veggie and Plant blends.
I have most definitely noticed an improvement in my skin’s texture and tone. I’ve never been able to use an exfoliant every night, but this is gentle and soothing. I love the formula!
Under my makeup during the day I have been loving the
24 Hour Moisturizer 1.7fl oz $65
This lightweight feeling anti aging moisturizer absorbs immediately into my skin. It is truly the perfect base to apply my makeup over! The airless pump allows for contamination free application.
Key ingredients: PhytoCellTec Argan, peptides, soluble collagen, stable vitamin C, Aloe, Prickly Pear/Nopal and the aforementioned Veggie and Plant blends.
Bottom line, I can’t recommend this luxury skin care line highly enough! I love having the best of age-old natural family skin care recipes with cutting edge ingredients in one line. Lumavera also offers an Anti-Aging Serum, Eye Cream, an Oxygenating Mask and a Perfection Peel. You can purchase Lumavera on their website.
