An effective moisturizing cream that might not be potent enough for mature skin

Pros

Extremely hydrating and nourishing yet fairly lightweight

Cons

Did not brighten or firm skin and had no impact on wrinkles

Lumavera offers a concise line of products that feature a produce department’s worth of botanical ingredients (and a plant-derived stem cell technology it calls PhytoCellTec Argan). Its Glycolic Night Cream and Anti-Aging Eye Cream earned positive reviews from TIA readers last month, so I was happy to try the Lumavera 24-Hour Moisturizer ($65) when it was offered.

My overall verdict: this is a welcome, multi-talented, mid-priced AM and PM cream. Lumavera says the 24-Hour Moisturizer “restores skin cells and offers abundant hydration for luminous skin” and touts its firming and anti-wrinkle properties as well as its moisturizing, brightening, and soothing qualities. In short, it promises major multi-tasking and the ingredients – from what I could tell – seem to run the gamut of anti-aging concoctions (peptides, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, etc).

I used it as suggested both day and evening for the last several weeks, and indeed I found it extremely hydrating, even as the seriously cold weather set in here in the Northeast. It’s soothing, smoothing, and nourishing, and I when I went away for a few days over the Thanksgiving holiday, I was glad to throw just one facial cream into my zip-lock bag. It’s reasonably lightweight and doesn’t feel heavy under makeup; it has a nice feel on application and smells, very faintly, like grapefruit. I can’t say I thought it provided any impact in terms of skin brightening, firming, or impact on wrinkles, though.

Still, simplicity is a good thing, and I think that at $65 for 1.7 oz (50 ml) Lumavera 24-Hour delivers and compares well with similarly priced moisturizers. Perhaps for me (at 58) it’s a better day cream, and those of us over 50 need more potent serums and creams for night – but it might be a terrific all-rounder for those in their ‘40’s or younger people with particularly dry skin.

Because Lumavera does stress its use of natural and botanical ingredients, I found it frustrating that their website doesn’t provide a specific ingredients list. Rather, it describes the “key ingredients” and their roles. While this is useful, I always feel that the detailed list, in order, provides a brand with more credibility. But with that proviso, this is one worth considering.

    I received my products and each individual box is quite worn. Shipped from Las Vegas.
    Any feedback and no information paper in each box.
    I feel boxes should be sealed and look brand new.
