Gift Ideas

Ok, so it's obvious we love our new gift collections; the most perfect and wonderful gifts in the whole wide world. Please forgive our enthusiasm, but we've all worked really hard for most of this year to make each one special in it's very own special way. Each with an elegance, personality and character all it's own. Each with a unique collection of products intended to bring a big ear to ear smile from your loved ones and and a nice long hug from your best friends.
We think gifts are very important. Nice surprises. Warm thoughts.
So we've assembled a wonderful selection of gifts. Small, medium and large. Each is a thoughtfully considered collection from our skincare essentials to an assembly our favorite facial and body care products. 
And for those of you who travel, we still offer our TSA approved traveler with everything you need to take care of your skin while you're flitting about the world. We think any one of these would make a nice present from you to you or from you to someone special. 
We keep the quality high. The prices reasonable.

Testimonials:

"After a thorough search for skin care products that are all-organic and free of toxins, parabens, etc, I came across Luminance. I ordered the introductory skin care gift box to start out and absolutely love taking care of my skin like never before! The wonderful aroma of the gentle cleanser, refreshing rose water toner, and super softening moisturizer feel amazing on my skin. I can use them everyday trusting I have found a brand as passionate as I am in regard to organic products free of everything bad for your skin. I proudly use my Luminance products day and night knowing that in the long term, these products are feeding my thirsty skin the best quality ingredients it needs and not chemicals that negatively impact it in ways I would not know of until years later. Definitely plan on trying out many more Luminance products! You should too!"

-Rosalba M

"I'm always skeptical when trying new skin care products, but Luminance products are excellent. The deep hydrating moisturizer is simply the best I've ever used. The cleanser is a delight with its wonderful, citrus scent. I liked all the products, and appreciate the organic, natural ingredients that go into each one. Exceeded my expectations. Thank you!"

-Susan D

What to expect

After using this trio the first thing you'll notice is how soft your skin is. Customers have describe it as "silky, comfortable, clean, and healthy."

Not tight or sticky and never greasy. 

After a week, you'll notice that your skin is calmer, you have fewer breakouts, and light is reflecting off of the top layers of the skin because it's holding more water. Giving you radiance and appearing more youthful. 

Don't worry, you're not doing long-term damage to your skin for short-term results because we don't use any synthetic or toxic ingredients.

In fact, we only use organic or wild-crafted ingredients that are really really good for the skin.

That also means we leave out the natural ingredients that irritate the skin like Vegetable Glycerin. 

Why it works:

Delicate Cleanser

In order to understand why our products are so effective, first you need to understand the problems that most cleansers create for the skin.

Yes, that's right, most cleansers cause oily, dry, or combination skin and can cause minor acne as well.

This is because most cleansers are actually a detergent, the same kind you wash your laundry or dishes with and they are too harsh. They do a wonderful job of removing dirt and oil but some of that oil is good. 

That oil is called sebum and it's one of the ways your skin protects itself from the elements. When your skin doesn't have enough sebum it will try to make a lot more to protect itself. So by about 3 pm your skin is very oily. 

Or maybe, you are one of those people whose skin isn't disposed to producing very much oil, and your skin stays dry all day. 

It's also possible that your skin only produces oil in certain places and you have T-zone oiliness (also known as combination skin). Regardless of your oil-producing predisposition, you can balance your skin very easily by switching your cleanser. 

If you notice, our cleanser is about 2/3 liquid soap and 1/3 oil and herbal extracts suspended on top.

We believe soap is a good way to clean your skin! As long as it's pH balanced.

You've probably heard people say that you shouldn't use soap on your face. What they really should be saying is "don't use anything that challenges the pH of your skin." Because it's true, if you use a bar soap your skin will feel dry after cleansing. The pH of soap is just too alkaline. 

Our cleanser is a gentle soap-based cleanser that is pH adjusted perfectly for the face and will lather off to remove all the dirt and make-up from the day. 

After using it your skin will feel slippery clean and fresh and never tight or dry.

Rosewater Toner

The benefits of Rosewater on skin are almost endless. It helps soothe every skin condition from Eczema, Psoriasis, Rosacea, to Acne. Mostly because it's a huge anti-inflammatory. 

And it's just wonderful for sensitive skin.

We also like it as a toner because it's hydrating and it lowers the pH of your skin back down to normal levels after you expose your face to overly-alkaline tap water. (All tap water is too alkaline for facial skin.)

Deep Hydration

The point of a good moisturizer is both to help keep the skin hydrated by absorbing and retaining water and also to feed it vitamins and antioxidants that it can readily use to nourish the upper layers of the skin. 

Because of all the additives and pesticides used in our food these days, having bad digestion is quite common. And when we're not absorbing all the vitamins nutrients we're eating our skin can look dull and lack vitality. 

We've formulated our Deep Hydration moisturizer with a mixture of oils with Myristic, Oleic, Gamma-Linoleic, and Linoleic fatty acid profiles. These oils are dissolve coagulated sebum and nourish all levels of the epidermis. We also use amazing plant extracts and herbal extracts rich in antioxidants.

Tamarind Seed Extract, for example, is an amazing anti-aging ingredient. One of the things that happen as we get older is the collagen in our skin starts to break down and we don't produce it as fast. But collagen is what makes our skin elastic and supple. It brings water to the surface of our skin to give it the highly sought after "glow."  

Tamarind Seed Extract mimics the effects collagen has on the skin. It's a big part of why our Deep Hydration is so good!

Another example is the c02 extracted herbal extract, Sea Buckthorn which has high levels of Vitamin C, E and K and is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants help prevent acne and wrinkles! 

Equally importantly are the ingredients we don't use. We don't use any "fillers" as a cheap base like Glycerine, Coconut Oil, and certainly not Mineral Oil.

We don't use any waxes which can clog pores or alcohol which dries out and irritates the skin.

And we definitely don't use any synthetic and/or toxic preservatives.
