When I begin any new skincare regimen, I typically try not to mix a bunch of different brands together at the same time to avoid any ingredients mixing that shouldn’t be. I also like to test the products out for not just a couple days but at least a month to see how it varies from what I was using previously and most importantly how my skin reacts to the formulations. Now that I’ve tried everything for a month I’m really excited to share with you my experience with Luminance Skincare Products! When I first received my package I couldn’t wait to smell each one and test it out first on the back of my hand. I do that with everything as I have somewhat sensitive skin and don’t want to have redness or irritation on my face if I can help it. The scent of each product is so light and natural, I could tell based on that alone that the ingredients were pure.
In Chronological order, of what I liked best to least, here’s my review:
Rosewater Toner: Loved this and definitely recommend it! Firstly, the scent of rosewater is just so feminine and it smells lovely. I love the smell of rose, so you get the added benefit of aromatherapy with a quality, natural face toner. I apply about 3-4 generous pumps and sprays of toner into the palm of my hand and pat it on my already damp face and neck vs. spraying it directly onto my face, I found that worked best and is what was recommended. Rose water is a great anti-inflammatory and specifically helps reduce redness in the face. If broken capillaries are your thing- give rosewater a go!
Handmade Soaps: The most gentle skin loving soap. This organic, all natural, hand-crafted soap smells just like fresh lemon. Really, it’s a secret blend of several 100% pure essential oils. Of course, it lathers wonderfully, deeply and gently cleansing like all our soaps. In fact, if you try out any luminance soaps, go with the lemon.
Organic Skin Lotion: This all natural, vegan, and raw body lotion. Like all Luminance products, this lotion is carefully blended by hand at just a few degrees above body temperature to assure the integrity of the naturally therapeutic ingredients. Designed to absorb quickly into your skin, because nobody likes standing around the cold and naked waiting for their lotion to absorb. Your whole body will be as soft as your face. I’m pretty much in love with their skin lotion, which I’ll use after a shower to avoid the dreaded Texas winter legs Syndrome and for extra tough dry patches like elbows, the skin butter is like a hydrating miracle.
Delicate Facial Cleanser: I have been using this cleanser for over a month now. This is a great facial cleanser for sensitive skin. I love that it has a pump sprayer. The scent is very clean and gentle. At first I kept it away from my eye area worried it might sting as some natural soaps can do but then as time went on I experimented around my under eye and it turned out to be perfect for my sensitive eyes. I would highly recommend this facial cleanser!
Hydration Face Moisturizer: I liked this facial moisturizer a lot. It has a lot of great natural ingredients. It definitely does a great job hydrating my skin. This probably my favorite product of the entire line. The formulation is heavenly! When I first tried it on the backs of my hands to check it first, I was amazed at how wonderfully it moisturized my hands and made them so silky. It has a slightly different feel than my previous moisturizer that took a couple days to get used to. I could see a difference in my skin after the first couple days. Since I had great results, I decided to use it instead of my regular eye cream. I use it on my face, neck and decolote area. When it’s applied you can use it sparingly but it doesn’t feel greasy or oily, just supple and moisturized and a bit dewy- LOVE that!
I know it’s hard to commit to a skincare line you’ve never tried before. If you guys give it a go let me know and report back with your results!
