|Giorgio Armani Luminous||
Giorgio Armani is a world leader when it comes to many personal and beauty products. Over the years, Giorgio Armani products have become synonymous with exceptional quality. Among the personal care items made by the firm, there are skincare, perfumes and colognes. These products are produced and distributed by L’Oreal with whom Armani has had a long term partnership. Giorgio Armani skin care products are readily available in most high end American stores.
Recently one of the products developed by the Armani firm is the Luminous brand of skincare treatments. It is claimed that this innovative product is based on a unique combination of ultra fine microcrystals that can generate a skin tone that appears luminous and natural. The results are said to last a whole day. The Giorgio Armani Luminous micro soft crystals have a very soft texture and give the skin a smooth and comfortable feel. Further, because the microcrystals are made in an oil free base, they are claimed to “capture the gloss” of skin and generate a radiant light. When applied in successive layers, these crystals fill up the spaces in the skin, maintain hydration and also provide a basis for a firm foundation. When used on a regular basis, the luminous formulations are claimed to make you look young, wrinkle free and gorgeous.
Giorgio Armani luminous can be used on all skin types.
Unfortunately, Giorgio Armani does not reveal all the ingredients in its Luminous products, but they do describe this new Micro Fil Technique. Micro-Fil Technology is a new technological approach that allows for a mixture of extremely fine, luminous and transparent raw materials: the supple and light texture makes application easy and allows you to play with a multitude of layering effects. Once the Giorgio Armani Luminous microfilm crystals are applied they are claimed to look just like skin.

- Ultimatley, this is more of a concealer makeup than a long-term wrinkle fighting topical treatment.
The Bottom Line
It is hard to be critical of a brand that is world renowned and that has produced decent quality products over the years. But again, it appears that many European companies simply feel that the consumer does not need to know what is in the formulas. This Micro Fil technology that Giorgio Armani Luminous is based on claims to create an invisible makeup that generates a second skin. But, for starters, what are the crystals really made of? Giorgio Armani goes into great length about the new revolutionary technique but not once are any ingredients listed. Are the crystals made from lead, silicone or diamond? There are a lot of testimonials on cyberspace about Giorgio Armani Luminous. And in the majority of cases, the consumers admire the packaging, style and elegance of the product. The majority simply said they could not afford Giorgio Armani products. In the end, the question is one of affordability. Giorgio Armani has always catered to the elite clientele with money. Also, the Giorgio Amrani Luminous line never claims to be anything other than a concealer makeup product, so those looking for topical wrinkle fighters should look elsewhere.
