Lumavera Skincare-

Lumavera Glycolic Night Cream
Lumavera Oxygenating Masque


It has been quite some time since I won these products via Bloglovin and as I was going through my skincare to do list, I saw these and was ashamed that I hadn't given them much thought as I was knee (or face) deep in testing others and trying to finish products already started. So I researched www.lumavera.com and started to use the products. I am glad that I did!

Information from their website:

I am 49, been a smoker a long time (dang this trying to quit is HARD), have dry skin, hyperpigmentation (good old Texas sun) and get red easily, as in people asking if I'm having a heart attack when I have a hot flash! I have been using acids and glycolics in cleansers and treatments for about 10 years now along with retinols. My face is not sensitive at this point with new and heavy duty product ingredients.

Glycolics and acids are necessary in my skincare to help move along old cells, resurface my face and bring about that healthy skin glow I crave. I alternate nights using acid products such as Dr. Dennis Gross, Nip & Fab in pad form with this Glycolic Night Cream. The first time I used it, there was quite the stinging going on, but not for long and went on smoothly, fragrance wasn't overwhelming and the after using this for a week, there was a noticeable brightening of my face. I also noted that the "orange peel" texture I have (drives me nuts) was not as noticeable. Seriously, it was the only skincare change in my life and it works!

Saturday and Sundays have long been my pamper day and I grabbed the Oxygenating mask to use before I placed a sheet mask on for super hydrating purposes. OH MY! It bubbles and foams and feels really cool on the face. It was like that extra kick to my skincare pampering routine. Definitely wins a place in the mask/hydrating/treatment box!

After reading the information provided by the website as well as researching some of the stellar ingredients, I was pleased to have been the recipient of these products and want to make sure my readers are aware of this brand as well. Yeppers, they are pricey. Packaging is very basic, but pumps on their products are a big deal (hygiene and portion control ya'll). Overall, I am pleased with the results of these 2 products and if I budget well, there may be several other products coming home with me!

Have ya'll tried these, or heard of this company? What are your thoughts? Do tell!
