The Luna (latin for Moon) Collection is all about deep hydration and balancing. It is best for drier skin types but I thoroughly enjoyed it as long as I used it in moderation (I have combination and sometimes very reactive skin). This entire collection is very concentrated so a little goes a long way. I love how Rose, a symbol of love and beauty, is used in almost every capacity in the Luna line. You will see Rose hydrosol, rose plant, and herbal rose infusions in each product- each instilling different beneficial properties. Ah-mazing!
I am a big fan of oil (and oil-based) cleansers. The Rose + Chia Moisturizing Facial Cleanser is no exception as this cleanser does it all. It breaks down oil and makeup, decongests pores, and hydrates all while leaving your skin soft and ready for more. Make sure to remove it with a warm, damp wash cloth to thoroughly remove all traces of sunscreen, pollution, and everything else the oils break down. This is a unique combination of deep cleansing oils and African Black soap so try this out if to do it all! This is also a great first step if you are double cleansing.
Ingredients: Distilled Water, Sunflower oil*, Shea Butter*, Apricot Kernel oil*, Palm Kernel oil*, White Willow Bark* extract, Rose-hip* extract, Chia seed* extract, infusions of Rose*, Lemon Balm* Chamomile*, Lemon*, and Heal All*, cellulose gum (plant based), Potash (used in saponifying process), essential oils of Rose Geranium*, Lavender* and Benzoin*
This is a treat for the senses! This could have been overly rosy and overwhelming but they hit the sweet spot with a beautiful mist that is mildly floral, refreshingly citrusy, and with a slight vegetal aroma.
The ingredients? Rose hydrosol provides moisture, Blood Orange hydrosol and Rosehip extract give a good dose of Vitamin C, and supercritical Sea Buckthorn provides plenty of carotenoids and fatty acids for barrier replenishment. This is a true powerhouse treatment product and the Must-Have toner of the season!
Ingredients: Rosa Damascena (Rose) Hydrosol*, Citrus Sinensis (Blood Orange) Hydrosol*, extracts of Rosa spp. (Rose-hip)*, Hippophae rhamnoides L. (Sea Buckthorn)*, Helianthus annuus (Sunflower Seed)* oil, Sea Hippophae rhamnoides L. (Buckthorn)* oil, Rosa Spp. (Rose-hip)* oil and Lactobacillus extract
Raw honey seems to be popping up everywhere in green skincare. I love that Live Botanicals works with local bee keepers that are true stewards of their bee populations. They make sure the bees are well taken care of. We need our bees and with populations on the decline, this is an important aspect to look into when choosing a skin care product. Rest assured- they are on top of it!
This mask smells, looks, and even tastes like something I would put into my tea on a daily basis. Rich, floral, and so gooey! Make sure to let it sit on a counter and settle for a bit before opening after shipment. I didn't and well, at least honey dissolves with just water!
I loved the texture once I put it on my face. This mask does not harden- it stays slightly tacky which I prefer.
The benefits? Here we go: The raw honey is a natural humectant meaning it actually draws in moisture from the atmosphere and binds it to your skin. Papaya enzymes and honey gently exfoliate leaving your skin plump, hydrated, and feeling amazing! Chia seeds provide essential fatty acids to restore and protect the skin barrier while Rose and Chamomile essential oils provide a calming, aromatherapeutic experience.
I really enjoyed this treatment. No irritation, no redness, just soft, smooth skin.
Ingredients: Raw Honey*, Glycerin*, Rose*, Calendula*, Dandelion Root*, Jojoba oil*, extracts of Aspen*, Papaya, Rose-hip* and Chia seed*, and essential oil of Chamomile* and Rose
Here is the big skin changer in the Luna Collection. The newly reformulated Renewing Concentrate seals in hydration, increases collagen formation, improves scar healing, and is an anti-oxidant powerhouse! This rich balm is full of essential fatty acids, CoQ10, house-made slow herbal infusions- there is no stone left unturned. This does it all!
This formula is truly best for more mature/dehydrated/dry skin types. I was happy to use it as a night treatment in very small quantities but it was too rich for me during the day (and I adore this as a neck & décolleté treatment!) Blemish-prone skin types should keep this in mind and perhaps look to the next rockstar product instead (see below)!
Ingredients: Chia Seed Oil*, Camellia Seed Oil*, Jojoba*, Candelilla Wax, Babssu Oil*, Supercritical Sea Buckthorn Berry extract*, Supercritical Rose-hip Seed extract*, herbal infusion of Rose, Chamomile and Lavender, Sunflower Seed Oil*, Lupinas Albas Seed Extract, Ubiquinone (CoQ10), Rose Otto, Neroli Essential oil, Supercritical Myrrh extract* and Vetiver Essential Oil*
This may be called a serum but make no mistake, this delivers incredible moisture while deeply infusing healing phytonutrients into the skin. A little goes a long way too so be judicious with your application. This may not be apart of the Luna line but I couldn't wait to share it in another post! This is perfect for all skin types and is a great alternative to the Renewing Concentrate if you tend to break out.
This baby blue serum hales it's color from the Blue Tansy essential oil. Known for it's antihistamine and anti-inflammatory properties, it's no wonder we are seeing this ingredient in so many products recently. This serum/balm has so many superstar ingredients!
Just to name a few:
*Babassu Oil - non-comedogenic while keeping moisture locked in
*Cranberry Seed Oil- high levels of Vitamin E
*Sunflower Seed Oil - great for hydrating blemish-prone skin
*Passion Fruit Seed Oil- provides potent antioxidants to reduce UV damage
Ingredients: Bababssu Oil*, Cranberry Seed Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil*, Grape Seed Oil*, Passion Fruit Seed Oil*, Infusions of Lavender*, Lemon Balm* and Self-Heal*, Essential oils of Blue Tansy*, Juniper Berry and Lavender*
I loved this serum as a daytime hydrator, especially when I experienced an untimely breakout.
Despite being packed with plant oils - this serum melts effortlessly into the skin without a trace of greasiness. And don't get me talking about the aroma- amazing. It is a work of art!
