You may have heard about this company from your local spa, and Luxuriant itself is becoming more and more popular with spas all around the U.S. This skincare company focuses solely on vitamins and exotic extracts in their anti-aging creams, and creams range from specific wrinkle prevention to treatments for Eczema, offering all sorts of creams for all sorts of skin ailments. Although you cannot purchase Luxuriant products in your local store, some say it is worth the trip to the spa.
Despite how much Luxuriant touts itself as a holistic, natural way to achieve skin health, they don’t actually expand upon how they came to these conclusions — or how it works scientifically with your skin. Most skin care companies usually don’t explain how their creams work, but this is no excuse for a lack of information. This probably won’t deter most consumers from trying it out, or at least developing a sudden interest in their products.
Luxuriant’s top-selling anti-wrinkle product, Bioxifirm, contains an active mixture of Vitamin A, K, Sweet Almond Proteins, Anise Extracts, and other minerals, and their Moisture Plus Eye Serum (an anti-wrinkle agent for the eye area) contains Evening Primrose, Macademia Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, Squalane, Emu Oil, and other essential oils. Vitamins are indeed an important part of skin care, and some help lessen the appearance of wrinkles – Vitamin A, for example. Some say that this vitamin is stronger than Vitamin E in terms of improving skin health, and that the abundance of antioxidants is key for maintaining healthy, vibrant skin. Studies definitely show Vitamin A’s impact, but the part skincare companies won’t tell you is that many studies indicate that the body needs to process it (ie; consume the vitamin with food) to allow the vitamin to fully dissolve.
The oils contained in their Luxuriant Moisture Plus Eye Serum are interesting to note. Jojoba Oil has demonstrated moisturization properties, and Rosehip Seed Oil adds to the feel of the product. A quick warning about Macademia Oil, however – some people may be allergic to it.
- Vitamins A and E provide numerous benefits for the skin.
- They offer numerous products aimed at different skin issues.
- Macademia Oil can cause allergic reactions.
- The vitamins included are less potent in topical form.
- It is a spa-exclusive brand.
The Bottom Line
Luxuriant’s ingredients stick true to their holistic philosophy, but the concern here is that they may be used in the wrong way, and may have a lessened impact when applied in topical form. There are a few allergy concerns here as well, especially if you suffer from bad reactions to nuts, and currently Luxuriant offers no substitutes for people with nut allergies. Visiting your local spa will probably help get you a better idea about this company – and if their products will help you with your skincare needs.
