Luminesce Essential Body Renewal, Cellular Rejuvenation Serum & Advanced Night Repair

A couple of months ago I was sent three products from the Luminesce Skincare Range* to trial and tell you about.  I was really excited to trial them as they claimed to use Adult Stem Cells to rejuvenate cell renewal and provide anti-aging benefits.

What they say...
The anti-aging skincare component of LUMINESCE™ super-charges the production of young, fresh skin cells. Infused with a potent growth factor complex derived from natural adult stem cells, the LUMINESCE family of products rejuvenates skin cells at a molecular level.
The Jeunesse Youth Enhancement System uses DNA repair and antioxidant ingredients to improve cell performance and longevity. Our patent-pending stem cell innovation helps generate new, vital skin cells in the first place.

This potent growth factor complex is able to rejuvenate skin cells faster and at a molecular level. New cell production is stimulated, resulting in increased collagen and elastin for firmer skin tone. New cells also give your complexion a fuller appearance with a healthy, vibrant glow. With LUMINESCE, skin appears younger, because at the cellular level, it literally is younger.

With claims like that I was really excited to try these out although in all honesty I'm 28 and even with dry skin I'm not quite at the stage where I need heavy-duty anti-aging skincare.  Prevention is better than cure though right?!

The Essential Body Renewal moisturiser is a lightweight lotion that has a significant cooling effect.  I used this mainly on my legs, focusing on my thighs where I could do with some improved firmness.  You don't need a lot of this, a little goes a long way and I found it to soak in really quickly without leaving a sticky residue.  I found this to be quite hydrating and I really enjoyed the cooling effect although I'm not sure if I would feel the same come winter.  After using this every morning for about a month I noticed quite an improvement in the firmness and texture of my legs.  I don't think this is a product you would use all the time but for a targeted specific problem this could help you out.

The Cellular Rejuvenation Serum is the brands star product boasting the highest percentage of the growth factor complex.  This is an incredibly light serum that soaks into skin immediately.  It provided a little hydration but for someone like me with dryer skin I definitely recommend applying moisturiser over top.  It took a little while to see results with this one, but after about a month I noticed a significant improvement in the texture of skin.  There was a definite smoothness that hadn't been there before and my skin -which is prone to redness and freckles - was a lot more even.  

I used the serum in conjunction with the Advanced Night Repair every night which helped boost the hydration factor.  The Night Repair is a cream-gel texture and is just beautiful to apply.  As soon as it's on, skin is left feeling soft, and the combination of the two products leaves me waking up with plump, hydrated skin.  For me the Advanced Night Repair cream is light enough to use during the day but probably best to let it do it's work while you're sleeping.
Serum RRP $134.95  Advanced Night Repair RRP $99.95

I find these skincare products to be on the pricier side but have always believed that good skincare is a necessary investment.  If you're looking for specific products to target the overall texture of your skin and fight aging in an advanced way then these products could be the ones for you.
