I’m only 36, but did you know that officially from the age of 25, we can start treating aging skin? I mean think about it, of course you’re not old, BUT your skin is 36 years old (in my case). Yes we shed layers of dead skin regularly so it’s not REALLY 36 years old…but our skin is the largest organ we have so don’t you think we should invest in taking care of it?
As a beauty blogger, I love testing out new skincare products. I have combination skin and unfortunately I experience frequent breaks out (yes even at 36), so I’m always on the lookout for products that provide the right amount of hydration, without being too oily and don’t make my skin break out. My objectives are always to have smoother, plumped skin.
I was introduced to a few Lady Soma products not too long ago so I wanted to share my impression with you. Lady Soma is a New York based beauty company that has a holistic approach to producing cruelty free, natural products for healthy, balanced women.
Lady Soma’s newest product, SOMALUXE STEM CELL + PEPTIDE COMPLEX is an anti-aging facial moisturizer derived of stem cells, peptides and amino acids. The formula is created to stimulate new skin cells, help collagen production and skin cell longevity. The peptides and botanicals help soften skin texture and add firmness. It’s recommended to use this product once per day.
At $54.99 USD, the price point is on the steeper side, but as I mentioned above, we need to invest in our skincare regime so if it works, I’ll buy it! The Somaluxe stem cell + peptide complex is light and fluffy for a moisturaizer and feels really nice on the skin. It’s absorbed quickly and definitely has a refreshing feel to it.
As part of Lady Soma’s Somaluxe collection, this FIRMING LOTION can be used on the face and body. I didn’t test this out on my face, but I have been using this lotion all over my legs and bottom (those areas can take all the firming they can get!).
The Firming Lotion is designed to smooth, tone and tighten skin. Multiple vitamins and enzymes in the formula moisturize and strengthen the skin structure to achieve firmer skin. Apparently this lotion can even be used as an effective treatment for eye wrinkles, uneven skin tone, cellulite, and loose facial or body skin.
I think the lotion is good value for money as the bottle is 8oz in size and a little goes a long way. Containing a high concentration of firming peptides, this is what helps reduce fine lines and boost collagen and elastin.
I found the cream to go on very white, but it didn’t take long to absorb into the skin. I’ve been using it for about 3 weeks, and haven’t seen any miracle changes but my skin does feel smooth and really soft. The scent is a pleasant soft floral that does not over power.
When thinking about our anti-aging skincare regime, we can’t forget about our lips.The SOMALUX LIP RESCUE ($22.99 USD) is an intensive hydrating formula to help moisturize and strengthen lips. I am in LOVE with this product. It actually helps fill in the lines of my lips before I apply a matte lipstick, for a more even look. The other awesome benefit of this product? It actually plumps your lips after a few uses. If I was more organized, I would take before and after images of my lips, but you’ll have to just take my word for it!
With all the pollutants, UV rays and other harmful environmental factors that surround us, taking care of our skin should be a top priority. I’m glad I’ve been introduced to Lady Soma’s Somaluxe collection because, not only do I believe whole heartedly in the company’s holistic philosophy, but I’m also in love with any beauty product that helps me achieve cosmetic changes without the need for cosmetic procedures!
Until next time,
