First of all, I think the whole concept of Luminance is amazing and I truly appreciate every aspect of it. Secondly, I love the free gifts that often come with a purchase — it’s so exciting to find something extra packaged with my order!
Thirdly, my three star rating is not against the product— it just does not work for me. I have incredibly dry, sensitive skin and it is challenging for me to find a product that keeps my skin hydrated throughout the day without being greasy. For reference, I usually have to use pure unrefined Shea butter on my face which starts off greasy and takes awhile to soak in but keeps my skin from being dehydrated part way through the day.
I was looking for something like I said that was more deeply moisturizing and hydrating that supports aging skin rather than surface greasy. I have tried all of the luminance peptide creams/serums, the nourishing serum and the deeply hydrating moisturizer without success. They start off feeling great ( although I do still have to put a layer of Shea butter over them which still is greasy) but by midday my face has become so dry and dehydrated feeling and looking I need to remoisturze my face — which is not something I’m interested in doing on a daily basis. I have followed all of the instructions for how to apply each product (adding toner, massaging, etc) but the end result is still the same — dry, dehydrated skin. As I said , I am an exception — I have met very few people in my life who has skin similar to mine so I don’t want to discourage anyone from purchasing these amazing, conscientious products. I just want someone who may have skin similar to mine to know my experience with it all. I will continue purchasing your other products that do work for me as I would like to continue to support your business. And if you ever discover a formula for a deeply hydrating, nourishing, moisturizing facial product for unusually dry, sensitive, aging skin, I will be the first in line to purchase it.
Thank you again for the time and effort you put toward making quality products.
