Come autumn, our summer glow can fade leaving dull, dry skin. That’s why this new cleanser caught our eye, combining radiance-boosting botanicals and exfoliating charcoal, this powerhouse product works hard to brighten, nourish and revitalise tired skin. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest luxe offering from Lumity, including a special 20% off for SL readers...
THE FORMULA COVERS ALL YOUR NEEDS
The idea behind this 4-in-1 cleanse is it includes everything you need in one hit, without the need for layering numerous products. Designed to be used as a gentle cleanser, make-up remover, exfoliator and masque treatment, it has been launched to sit alongside the brand’s only other skincare product: a facial oil. “The Lumity Cleanser is 100% natural and will help you to clear out your bathroom cabinets of lots of unnecessary products,” explains Cambridge Skin Scientist Dr Sara Palmer Hussey, who formulated the product to prevent people from overloading their skin which can disrupt the skin’s barrier function.
CHARCOAL IS AT THE FOREFRONT FOR GENTLE EXFOLIATION
Loaded with activated bamboo charcoal (one of the most sustainable forms), it harnesses this key ingredient to gently exfoliate, draw out impurities and keep excess oil and enlarged pores at bay while gently breaking down make-up, too. You then have biodegradable jojoba beads which brighten, resurface and refine, while squalene deeply moisturises and nourishes the skin for smooth, hydrated results within just a few days.
IT'S SUITABLE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES
Because of the ‘less is more’ approach, the cleanser works to keep the skin balanced, which in turn helps keep blemishes, redness and hyper-pigmentation at bay. It was created for all skin types – even the most sensitised – to use daily, and thanks to the high levels of Echinacea extract, skin gets an antiseptic and antioxidant hit, so those with troubled skin types or breakouts can really benefit. To get the most out of it, massage a scoop onto dry skin, let it warm up (it’s the best feeling) then rinse off for a quick, radiant fix. You can also leave it on for 20-30 minutes, let it dry down and it will then work as a deeply hydrating, clarifying and brightening mask treatment.
COLLAGEN IS STIMULATED FOR A SMOOTHER COMPLEXION
With over 31 nutrient-rich botanical ingredients, Lumity’s cleanser aims to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while reinforcing the skin’s natural barrier. But what really stands out is the addition of passion flower seed oil and amla extract, both of which work to boost the fibroblasts that train your skin to produce its own collagen, resulting in a smoother, plumper and lifted complexion over time. Genius.
THE RESULTS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES
It’s only recently hit the shelves but already impressive studies and rave reviews have proven the cleanser's efficacy. Up to 94% said it effectively removed daily grime and pollution; while 90% said their skin instantly felt fresh; with a further 80% claiming after one week their skin looked and felt healthier.
