Lunagenics treating anti-aging in a matter of days

In the beauty world bold statements always gain interest from the market at the same time opening the door to consumer comments. In my opinion I like consumer comments regardless of the nature of the comment, here I view that a company wants to engage with their clients and have a  meaningful conversation so they can work on issues to improve product understanding and its use, its not for the faint hearted.

Lunagenics is just one of those brands and if you visit their official web site and other web review sites, the comments on the product are quite good and convincing. All the people who commented on the company website have stated that the product has worked miraculously for them, unlike anything they have ever used before which is good feed back, this suggest that the products work effectively and show amazing results instantaneously.

These customers commented that their wrinkles have vanished altogether within weeks of the usage of Lunagenics, we also know that everyone has a different depth of wrinkle depending on age and how much sun exposure they have allowed on their skin without sun protection during their life. 

With all products there will be customers that are not suitable for very active products and here some customers had experienced that the product was a little to strong for their skin, which may have indicated they are very sensitive but at the same time this would indicate the effacy of the ingredients.

Lunagenics is a clinical anti-aging treatment with a focus for fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and firming effects. A scientific based company researching and focusing on the study of dermatology and topical treatments they partner with laboratories, schools, medical professionals throughout the world to ensure that the products are effective and up to date with the greatest technology the world has to offer.

The tag line of “It works, while you sleep” is probably what everyone wants, so understanding how your body is working vigorously throughout the day and that most of the energy spent focuses towards your cognitive thinking, physical movement, and protection from outside factors such as the sun and free radicals  and toxins. Therefore when your body is in a resting state it will  recover and strengthen,  Lunagenics aims to utilize the rest period to enhance, repair, and resolve the skin concerns of aging. Simply, it works while you rest.

Lunagenics has been showcasing their products at COSMOPROF WORLDWIDE BOLOGNA

Alila ‘Indian Fig Finishing Cream’ a matte finish for a humid climate

I first tried the Indian Fig Finishing Cream from Alila Hotels and Resorts while in Hong Kong; this is a moisture treatment with a difference as if has a true matte finish. At first this is an unusual texture to apply, most if not all moisture creams have a “slip” factor so that spreading the cream over the skin is relatively easy. I could see that the Indian Fig Cream did to a certain extent “slip” across the skin, but not to the greasy extent that many other creams do. 

However I really did appreciate that this treatment cream just absorbed immediately into the skin leaving a matte finish, afterwards applying a sun protection or makeup over this treatment cream actually resulted in the makeup lasting longer in a humid climate. My understanding are that certain chemicals are added to a cream give the “slip,” chemicals that often have no skin enhancing value. 
Alila Living products advised that all their products are organic and natural with no chemical ingredients and the matte feeling was the combination of all the natural substances. The ingredients that give the matte finish of Indian Fig Finishing Cream are a blend of corn starch with vitamin E. Also another key factor for organic skin care users are preservatives, here Alila uses silver citrate and rosemary extract as the preservatives of the cream. 
The amount of times I have asked a therapist or beauty advisor, what preservatives are used if parabens are excluded, and the amount of times the answer is avoided is amazing. How totally refreshing to live with a brand who wants to educate their clients, and have no fear in speaking the organic and natural truth.
This is the only treatment cream I have tried so far from Alila Living Products, as a Spa Therapist and Teacher I cannot recommend this highly enough retailing price is around USD30 this a perfect treatment for Asia. You will have to travel to one of the stunning Alila properties to experience their spa and wellness treatments then buy their products, the Alila Living products are sold in every property. 

Indian Fig Finishing Cream is a highly effective moisturizing cream with excellent repairing, anti-oxidant and anti-aging properties. Tamarind, also known as Indian fig, is the star ingredient with great antiseptic, anti-allergy and skin tightening qualities. It is also an excellent anti-freckle and anti-aging remedy. Pure vanilla extract adds an element of gentle stimulation, while a dash of the very rare and exquisite brown lavender absolute adds an aroma that will send you soaring into ecstasy. Created for all who appreciate the finest things in life, truthfully.

Skincare tips for the season from Algenist

Cleanse: Your skincare routine each day should start and end with the use of a cleanser, so it is crucial to use one that is both dependable and hydrating. Often times cleansers can be too aggressive which can cause short-term and long-term damage to skin. It is important to use a gentle face wash to awaken the skin and leave it clean and restored. The Algenist Gentle Rejuvenating Cleanser ($25, digs deep to remove makeup and dirt, but remains gentle enough not to dry out the skin. Skin is instantly left smoothed, revived and radiant while the protective cells skin needs are left in place.

Reduce Wrinkles: We all know that skin needs to be cleansed, moisturized and exfoliated on a regular basis, but the addition of a power-house serum into your skincare regime can quickly and effectively improve your skin’s health, in addition to solving a number of cosmetic problems. Serums not only moisturize, rejuvenate, lift and nourish skin; they also fight wrinkles and lines and help diminish the appearance of dark spots – all in just a few drops a day. Serums can also help boost the amount of collagen within the skin and provide much-needed nutrients to help counteract the signs of aging. Algenist’s Concentrated Reconstructing Serum ($95, is a favorite among many experts due to the clinically-proven decrease in wrinkles and increase in skin density and radiance which you’ll see in just 10 days of use.  It is a staple in my daily skincare routine.

Moisturize: You don’t have to be a dermatologist to understand the importance of using a moisturizer, but what’s harder to recognize is the importance of finding the right moisturizer for your skin type. During the winter months, skin inevitably becomes dry, thus bringing to life a number of unwanted issues – from cracked skin and dehydration, to aging and wrinkles, dry skin is an issue that cannot be ignored. The Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer ($90, from Algenist is a moisturizer like no other. The luxurious and moisturizing formula hydrates skin while also rebuilding firmness and elasticity. With regular use, the Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer is proven to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores leaving skin revived and hydrated.

Bright-Eyed: Eyes are one of the first places that aging really shows, and unfortunately fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear in the delicate areas around your eyes much sooner than expected, taking many by surprise. But fear not! These lines can be slowed – or stopped – with the use of topical creams designed to moisturize, protect and reduce wrinkles. Build the usage of an eye cream into your routine each morning and evening as they really can improve the quality of skin around your eyes within weeks.  Algenist’s Complete Eye Renewal Balm ($65, is the perfect cream to lock water into the skin keeping it moisturized and firm, help diminish dark circles, puffiness and eye contours in just four weeks of daily use.
