Luxtural when Luxury meets Nature at the skin

Luxtural Skincare is created from pure Pacific Ocean rain - untouched by toxins, exotic extracts and other superior natural ingredients.

This range is rumoured to be favourites of Demi Moore, Angelina Jolie, Lucy Liu and Joy Bryant. This suggestion alone made me want to see what all the fuss is about. So, when I was approached by Luxtural I jumped at the chance of testing them out.


These are the 3 products which I have been sent and used in this order;

Mystique Fountain Facial Deep Hydration Rainy Mist 100ml $78.00
Silk Premonition Facial Deep Moisturising Anti Aging Lotion 40ml $150.00
Sophisticated Veil Facial Anti Aging Deep Moisturising Serum 35ml $186.00



My initial thoughts on this range is that it's very expensive compared to my target price range for skincare. The packaging is sleek, pretty and practical, I like the fact that the two of them have pump applicators for hygiene reasons. The fancy names such as mystique, silk and sophisticated may cause controversy as they are not the usual descriptive words that skincare companies use.

I have only used the products twice so far and the first thing I can say is I am pleasantly surprised by the scent of them; it has a hint of sweetness mixed with the smell of rain and flowers with some spicy extracts. The formulas are very light and easily absorbed into skin.

I will be doing a full review of the 3 products after a couple of weeks, I have never been so enticed by skincare products! My mission to see whether it's true that we get what you pay for has commenced. Have you heard of this brand? If so, what are your thoughts?

I always check the ingredients of store brand products. I have noticed that a lot of high end products do not display their ingredients. It is more so the packaging aspect of the product for me! Can't wait to see the results.

I had never heard of this brand but the packaging is definitely very pretty! Wow, yes it's definitely expensive but then again if it works it works! And judging by that list of celebrities' names it probably does, but I'll be interested to read your review! I'm always sold by the likes of big names and pretty packaging! LOL! xoxo Anna
