This moisturiser makes some huge claims about how effective it is at moisturising, firming and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. All of these things I look for in a moisturiser but sadly not all of them live up to the hype. Do you want to know how this one performed? Well let me begin.
First off, this is what Aubrey Organics have to say :-
A breakthrough in natural complexion care, this revolutionary face cream replenishes and renews skin for a younger-looking complexion. Used regularly, Lumessence Lift has a gradual tightening effect on the skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and keeps the complexion soft and well-hydrated for up to eight hours.
- Algae extract has a gradual tightening effect, leaving skin firmer and younger-looking
with regular use.
- CoQ10 liposomes support cell structure with antioxidant and protective action.
- Oat Protein is an antiwrinkle ingredient, clinically shown to reduce fine lines by 34%
and deep wrinkles by 57%, and to keep skin hydrated for up to eight hours after application.
- Moisturizing, humectant and vitamin liposomes deliver hydrators and nutrients onto the
skin all day, while natural alpha-hydroxy liposomes gently encourage exfoliation to reveal
new, fresh skin cells.
See what I mean, some very bold statements there, especially regarding the wrinkle reduction.
So with all those claims I was intrigued to see how this cream would perform. This cream actually is luminescent, it has a real glow to it, when applied to the skin it has a blurring effect, giving the illusion of much smoother skin. The cream provides a perfect base for make up. I must also mention that I work in an air conditioned environment and after a 10-12 hour shift my skin nor my make up look it's best, however, this cream really helped to keep my skin moisturised and my make up looked fresher for longer.
I used this cream twice a day for 3 weeks and although I haven't seen my wrinkles reduce by 57% I have noticed that there is a definite improvement in the firmness of my skin and and the fine lines are not as noticeable. After using for 3 weeks I went on holiday so I switched to a face cream with sun protection, maybe with continued use over a period of time I would've noticed more of a reduction in my wrinkles.
As I still have two thirds of the jar left I am going to resume using this cream and who knows, with continued use I may have that 57% reduction in my wrinkles after all. I will do a blog update once I have emptied the jar.
I would suggest that this cream would be suitable for all skin types and predominantly for the more mature skin.
This cream retails at £31.64 for 30mls.
There is a really interesting history surrounding Aubrey Hampton, he was a dedicated animal rights activist and strongly committed to operating a cruelty-free company.
