Okay everyone, I have another Sunday Riley product to talk about and no surprise but it's amazing!
Luna uses a trans-retinol ester to help re-suface the skin and help fade hyper-pigmentation and acne scarring, wrinkles and lines and generally give a brighter more youthful look to the skin.
I'm gonna go on record here and say that I love a good bit of retinol but it can be harsh and while it works wonders for the tone and texture of the skin it can also cause sensitivity, dryness and flaking which is why I don't use them very often.
Luna is potent! Far stronger than I anticipated it being, I noticed a difference after one use, my skin just looked clearer, more even toned, the texture felt smooth and there was no "side effects" so to speak.
I've now been using it for about 6 weeks (not every day, maybe 4 times a week) and my skin just keeps getting better and better!
This blue tinted oil is easily absorbed, smells pleasant and you only need a few drops to cover the entire face, yes it's expensive and yes your bank balance will be weeping when you hand over your cash but your skin will thank you for it!
What they say:
Let Luna's advanced retinol complex be your secret weapon! Trans-retinol ester helps reduce the depth of lines and wrinkles, while correcting damage caused by the sun, time, pollution, lifestyle and stress, helping to create firmer, clearer, more translucent skin. A visibly more youthful, healthier looking complexion with increased skin thickness and reduced pore size is created. Put on before bed and erase the past, starting afresh.
Essential oil complex high in azulene (Blue Tansy, German Chamomile, and Cape Chamomile) helps to lower the irritation associated with retinol., for calm, soothed skin. Cold pressed avocado, chia and concord grape seed oil sink in deeply, for quick absorption of actives while boosting radiance.
