Luxiva Review


Luxiva is a brand of skin care products created by Merle Norman Cosmetics, which is a manufacturing company based in Los Angeles. Merle Norman Cosmetics markets a ton of beauty products in the Luxiva line such as toners, moisturizers, sensitive skin treatments, sun products, fragrances, bath products, and even a line specifically for men. Merle Norman Cosmetics actually dates back to the 1920’s when Merle Norman decided to create her own line of beauty products. Today, these products are distributed to around 2,000 independently owned Merle Norman Cosmetic Studios in Canada and the US.

The official Luxiva website is very easy to navigate and has a very thorough history of the company throughout the years. There is a handy “studio search” option so you can find a distributor near you also. Some of the wrinkle treatment products that stand out are the Luxiva Fine Line Minimizer, Luxiva Brilliant-C, and the Luxiva Moisture Rich Facial Treatment. Each of these products claims to moisturize the skin and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Product Details

There are over 70 different Luxiva products available for review on the official website. Unfortunately, they have very small descriptions of the products posted and you can’t purchase them directly from the website. You will have to hunt around in the various categories to find the wrinkle treatments as they are not marketed under a single product line or category.

We did notice that some of the Luxiva products contain popular wrinkle fighting ingredients such as argireline but the full ingredient lists are not available on the official website. There are no testimonials or clinical study results anywhere to be found. There are deals available on the official website that seem to change every once in a while, which is nice. Currently, if you buy two or more Merle Norman Products, you will receive 5 travel size samples of a body wash, body scrub, self-tanner, eyecolor, and lipcolor.

The Good

  • Some of the Luxiva anti-aging products contain known wrinkle fighters.
  • The official website is well laid out and contains a rich history of the manufacturer.
  • Local studios offer coupons and have sales regularly.


The Bad

  • No ingredients are listed on the official website.
  • There are no testimonials or clinical trial results posted on the official website.
  • No prices are shown on the official website.
  • You may live very far from a Luxiva studio, making products difficult to get a hold of.

The Bottom Line

There are tons of products available by Luxiva so you will be certain to find something that addresses your concerns. The problems arise when you try to find out what those products contain or even where to get them. There are numerous studios in major cities but for those who live in rural areas, you will be in for a very long drive if you want some Luxiva products. We wish they would provide a better description on the official website and post the full list of ingredients. If you live near a Luxiva studio, you may want to visit it personally to get more information.
