are you contantly battling with dry skin? are you also trying to maintain your skin's youthfulness?
i am. i have dry skin. the condition always gets worse at this time of the year when it gets cold and dry.
today i'm going to review a product that not only claims to moisturize but also rejevenates your skin.
luminesce essential body renewel.

the product comes in a elgant sleek grey tube. it has a flat metal cap on the other and this is where i'm bringing your attention to. see the hole on the cap? that's where product is dispensed. you do not twist open the cap to get the product. what a clever design! if you often clumsily drop caps when using products, you'll love this design.
the consistency of the lotion is light weight and thinner than most lotions that are marketed for dry skin and delivers deep hydration.
it spreads easily and instantly relieves the discomfort of dry skin - the tightness and itchiness. skin feels nourished and refreshed and softer too! i love that you don't feel like carrying extra weight on your skin like most thicker creamier lotion do.
in addition, it's light fragrance is lovely and soothing. it disappears soon after application. i wish this fragrance could stay longer!
if you have normal to dry skin, this satisfies your thirsty skin.
if you have serious dry skin problem that's as dry as sahara dessert, you'll probably be disappointed that the hydration isn't long lasting. on my very dry skin, all the goodness i felt on application starts to disappear and discomfort starts to emerge around 2 to 3 hours later. but, this is a common problem i face especially at this time of the year. to date i've yet found anything that satisfies my winter skin and provided the desired long lasting, ie all day, effect.
i think this might work better for me if it's used during the summer months.
the 150ml tube lasted me around 2.5 weeks. with re-applications to my arms and legs from time to time. however i find that skin felt best when it's applied immediately after shower with patted 95% dry skin.
as with the produce's claim to repair and protect against premature aging, with less than 3 weeks usage it's hard to detect any visible improvements. you probably need continual use to see the benefits.
