When French skincare line LIERAC invited us to a press event for the launch of their latest product, we were there with bells and whistles. Make that, a statement necklace and sparkly clutch. The evening took place at the fabulous Jules Verne Panorama Bar and kicked off with cocktails and a star-gazing tour of the Urania observatory, followed by dinner and a presentation of the night’s focus, LIERAC’s Lumilogie Day & Night Dark Spot Correction Double Concentrate.
Hyperpigmentation is a problem that plagues many women. And, let’s face it, those freckles were adorable when you were 12 but now they’ve joined forces and announce your sun exposure indiscretions to the world – eek!
Lumilogie promises to fix that. Conveniently bottled together but in separate compartments (hello, travel-size!), it provides a two-in-one solution to combatting stubborn dark spots. With active ingredients like Vitamin E and Sea Daffodil Extract, the daytime formula helps prevent emerging dark spots and is meant to be worn under your moisturizer (with SPF, we hope!). The night concentrate is a bit more intense, boasting ingredients like Hydroxy Acids and Hexyl R, and stimulates peeling and rejuvenation. Did we mention they both smell great?
Verdict: After a week and a half of faithfully using both formulas, we’re definitely seeing an improvement in skin texture and tone. It’s safe to say, Lumilogie has earned a spot in our toiletry cabinet.
The product will be available at pharmacies throughout Zurich in March, including Coop Vitality and Amavita Apotheke. And at under 60 CHF per bottle, it beats expensive and painful visits to an aesthetician!
