Lumity Not Just Supplements

Hiya Darlins

You know of my addiction to Lumity Life supplements I first started using these in 2017, you can read my initial thoughts here. The brand have gone from strength to strength and are now a firm celebrity favourite. My next post including Lumity was where I discussed 5 lessons I would have told my younger self.

Today I am here discussing my thoughts on the latest Lumity product.

Lumity Nutrient Rich Skin Saviour 4-in-1 Cleanse 100ml £55.00

10ml sample size available at £15.00 

Firstly you would be forgive for thing "what the actual?"  when you get a first look at the deep black contents of the jar.  The jar itself is black glass which is used to protect botanical ingredients from light damage. On opening the jar you really do need to take a long hard sniff, no I haven't lost the plot, stay with me here :)  The hit of pure botanicals will hit your senses and have you deep breathing over your open jar, the fragrance is truly heavenly and reminiscent of an expensive spa treatment.  Was I wary of applying a black product to my face?  of course; it's something I have never experienced before oh apart from trying a black peel off mask once to a very sorry end!

On applying the rich balm like formula to your skin you instantly feel a slight warming, not a sting a gentle warming, the sensation is lovely it really has a comforting effect along with the fragrance you really do feel as though you are spoiling yourself.  While this cleanse is there to give you perfectly clean skin the benefits are far more than just your average cleanser.  Used on bare skin you are assured of a deep cleansing treatment, used for removing makeup you can be assured that every last bit will be whipped away (avoid eyes) as an exfoliator the 31 nutrient rich ingredients will literally lift away dead skin cells, and as a special treat applied as a mask for 30 minutes will probably see you asleep as though you are having a salon treatment. Once you have removed the cleanse with warm water and a washcloth  (it's easily rinsed out of the cloth) your skin is left feeling super clean with no tightness or redness, I often don't feel the need for a night cream after using this.

I am loathed to describe this as a cleanser for me it's more of a treatment and makes the rigour of twice daily cleansing feel more like a treat for my skin and something I quite look forward to.

Treat yourself to a cleansing experience like no other, the company are so confident it will be love at first use they are offering a generous 15 ml sample sized jar at £15.00.  I personally feel that when brands offer sample sizes it proves the confidence they have in their products.

Lumity 4-in-1 Cleanse ingredients

  • SAFFLOWER SEED OIL, rich in magnesium and vitamin B6, protects the skin’s radiance. Its high concentration of ceramides (78%) safeguards the integrity of skin cell membranes and keeps the skin firm, supple and well-hydrated.
  • CASTOR OIL is an effective oil for cleansing. Its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties make it a soothing and purifying option. It penetrates easily and moisturises deeply. Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, castor oil works well against blemishes and uneven skin tone. Castor oil is non-comedogenic and a great make-up remover.
  • SESAME SEED OIL is rich in zinc, copper, magnesium, vitamin E, vitamin K and coenzyme Q10, all-important nutrients for the skin. It helps boost smoothness, elasticity and bolsters the skin’s natural barrier against environmental damage.
  • CAMELLIA SEED OIL, the beauty secret of Geishas, who used it to remove their make-up, is naturally rich in squalene, which has outstanding emollient properties. It has ideal skin affinity, which allows it to be absorbed quickly and thoroughly to deeply replenish the skin. 
  • SUCROSE STEARATE is derived from sucrose and a fatty acid found in high concentrations in shea butter. It softens and smoothes the skin’s texture, but is also used as a natural emulsifier in skincare products. 
  • VEGETABLE GLYCERIN combined with our 30 star botanicals effectively moisturises and softens the skin. It helps the skin retain water to ward off dryness and it strengthens the skin’s barrier function. It also enhances the penetration of our botanicals. 
  • ACTIVATED BAMBOO CHARCOAL POWDER has a very porous structure that is able to draw out and hold impurities, bacteria, toxins and micro-particles off the skin ready to be washed away. It is less drying than other skincare ingredients, such as clay, which is often used in masks thanks to its ability to draw out impurities. Bamboo is also one of the most sustainable of natural skincare ingredients.
  • JOJOBA BEADS – these tiny natural beads composed of jojoba oil offer the most gentle exfoliation. Unlike other exfoliators, jojoba beads do not scratch or irritate the skin’s surface producing micro-lacerations and leaving the skin open to infection. Also, unlike microbeads, jojoba beads are 100% natural and biodegradable. 
  • COCONUT OIL is deliciously-scented and its high fatty acid content make it perfect for both make-up removal and soothing the skin. 
  • BAOBAB SEED OIL, a revered African beauty staple, is a high-powered, vitamin-packed hydrator, rich in omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, natural penetration enhancers due to their fluidising effect on cell membranes. 
  • PASSION FLOWER SEED OIL is a vitamin and mineral-rich oil, shown to stimulate skin fibroblasts, the cells that synthesise collagen and elastin. It is a very light, thin oil, ideal for sensitive and oilier skin types.
  • MARULA OIL, rich in vitamins C and E, speeds healing. Its high oleic acid and phytosterol content improves strength, suppleness and firmness. It is a very stable oil with soothing and strengthening properties, ideal for sensitive skin.
  • COCOA BUTTER is an excellent emollient. Rich in phytonutrients, it nourishes and softens the skin, preparing it for subsequent treatments.
  • CRANBERRY SEED OIL is especially rich in antioxidants, in betacarotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, proanthocyanidins, hippuric acid and catechins, which all contribute to the healthy condition of the skin.
  • VITAMIN E is a potent antioxidant both on the skin and in our formulation (prolonging our cleanser’s shelf life naturally). It protects against environmental aggressors (eg pollution and UV radiation) and is essential for wound-healing and the prevention of scarring.
  • GRAPEFRUIT ESSENTIAL OIL is rich in vitamin C and is renown for improving lymphatic drainage and boosting circulation. It is cleansing and purifying to the skin and its scent is clarifying, stimulating and uplifting.
  • JUNIPER BERRY ESSENTIAL OIL has a woody scent that is calming and grounding. It is naturally toning and astringent, making it ideal for use in an oil-based cleanser. It is also renown for reducing the appearance of blemishes.
  • CENTELLA ASIATICA EXTRACT, traditionally referred to as the “fountain of youth”, increases blood supply, antioxidant levels in the skin and encourages the production of fibroblasts, the cells that synthesise collagen in the skin. 
  • ECHINACEA EXTRACT has a smoothing, astringent effect on the skin, tightening and firming. Its antiseptic and antioxidant properties are a boon for troubled skin, helping to calm and soothe skin back to healthy radiance.
  • WHITE WILLOW BARK EXTRACT is anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and gently exfoliating. Rich in tannins and flavonoids, white willow bark helps increase antioxidant levels, tones the skin, while reducing any micro-inflammation or redness. It also contains salicin, which has been credited with improving radiance, the appearance of wrinkles and pore size.
  • GREEN TEA LEAF EXTRACT is rich in catechins, 
in particular EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), that when applied to the skin, inhibit matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), the enzymes that break down collagen and elastin. 
  • GOJI BERRY EXTRACT is rich in carotenoids and antioxidants that naturally protect the skin from the harmful effects of UV rays. It also contains important minerals, amino acids, vitamin C and vitamin B3, a boon for youthful skin.
  • LEMONGRASS ESSENTIAL OIL has antiseptic and astringent properties, making it an excellent ingredient for cleansing. Its uplifting, citrus-like aroma is used in aromatherapy to promote positivity and enthusiasm.
  • AMLA EXTRACT is a rich source of vitamin C, minerals and peptides. It has been shown to stimulate the proliferation of fibroblasts and increase the production of collagen, both of which indicate an improvement in the firmness and youthfulness of the skin.
  • ACAI FRUIT OIL is a potent anti-ageing ingredient, being rich in antioxidants and polyphenols, such as epicatechins, ferulic acid and resveratrol. This oil is deeply nourishing and reparative.
  • MANGO SEED BUTTER is a rich source of fatty acids and nutrients, in particular, betacarotene, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Rich and nourishing, it is perfect for dry, dehydrated skin, but is also balancing and non-comedogenic for oily skin and soothing for sensitive skin.
  • GREEN COFFEE SEED OIL is packed with powerful antioxidants (chlorogenic acid, for example, is a more potent antioxidant than vitamin C) and polyphenols that protect and repair the skin against UV damage. 
  • PANAX GINSENG ROOT EXTRACT supports the skin’s elasticity and strength. It also protects the skin from damaging free radicals, helping it resist age-related changes caused by pollution and sun damage.
