Lucrèce skincare products
I’ve been trying out 6 Lucrèce skincare products for three weeks and I actually enjoyed it so much. I am always a fan of trying new beauty products and especially for my skin. This product made me very curious because I never heard of this brand before. It looked like something I had to try out. When I could choose 6 products to try out, I couldn’t wait to let you know my experience. When the package arrived, all I wanted was to remove my make-up and start to wash my face and begin my new daily skincare ritual.
What is Lucrèce?
The 6 products I have received are all from Lucrèce Physicians’ Aesthetic Research, Inc. (LPAR). There are different lines of Lucrèce. Read more here.
“Lucrece Physicians’ Aesthetic Research, Inc. (LPAR) was established in San Clemente, California in 1993 by a team of professionals consisting of a dermatologist, an aesthetician and a cosmetic surgeon to develop professional skin care products for anti-aging and hyper pigmentation.”
Thyme & apricot cleanser
Like I said, I started to clean my face with the Thyme & apricot cleanser. This cleanser is good to use for all skin types. I am a bit afraid when a product is for all kinds of skin types, because my skin is very dry and sensitive. This cleanser makes my skin very clean and it feels a little bit dry after rinsing, however, that makes me feel clean and using the other products of the skincare line, solves this right away. The scent is natural.
What I appreciate so much about all the skin care products is that the products contains natural active ingredients, no parabenes and the packaging is environment friendly. It feels like a good product for me, my skin and the environment.
Pineapple facial scrub
The pineapple facial scrub is my number one favorite of the 6 Lucrèce skincare products I’ve received. Why? It smells amazing, not just good, but amazing! It’s like I’m rubbing my face with a pineapple. But better. I just get hungry when I smell it. It’s a true party to use this product under the shower. I feel like being on an island on the Maldives, smelling fresh fruit. Anyways, the scrub is doing it’s job. Without hurting my sensitive face, I make it very smooth. After using this scrub my face feels soft as a babyskin. If you want to try at least one product of this line; start with the pineapple facial scrub. You only have to use it 1-2 times a week unfortunetely.
Hydration serum with peptides
The hydration serum with peptides I used, made my skin feel hydrated directly. But also at the end of the day, I still did not feel dry. Of course I used this serum together with the cream on top. I felt however as if my skin was hydrated from inside. The serum goes much deeper into the skin than a facial cream. What I noticed was that you really should use a little amount. It’s a small bottle (30 ml) and it’s very concentrated. I would really recommend this serum, because you only need so little for such a great hydration.
Stem cell moisturizing cream and stem cell eye therapy
Perfect to use on top of the hydration serum (which you don’t use around your eyes). The eye therapy is very concentrated too. I pumped out one small amount, but it was usually too much. I would love to have this is in a different bottle, so that I could take out a little bit less amount. Both creams are very moisturizing and my skin feels hydrated without getting oily. It’s a very good base under my make-up and my eye area stays hydrated after using concealer, which is very important to me.
Clear Zinc Solar Protection SPF 30
A great product again to use to protect your skin from the sun. This product was not part of my daily skincare routine. This product I used now and then when the weather was sunny. SPF 30 is enough for me, however I could maybe use a SPF 50 on a holiday to countries like Egypt. Here in Scandinavia or the Netherlands, it would be more than enough sun protection. The cream spread easily. The zinc has an anti-irritant benefit. I brought this product in my handbag every time I went out on a sunday into the sun without wearing any make-up. That’s the best summer feeling and the perfect protection.
Total conclusion about Lucrèce skincare products
I was a bit afraid to switch eye cream. This is because I have had a lot of eczeem and changing creams can cause that I get a red and dry skin again. However, from using all the products, I only saw benefits. The products felt very pleasant to use. I didn’t feel sensitive to anything of the ingredients (all the ingredients are visible on the website). My skin looks hydrated, healthy glowing and absolutely young and fresh. The lines around my eyes are a bit less, since the therapy lifted my eye skin. The rest of my face looked similar, but very healthy hydrated and glowing. The smells of the products are naturally and not overwhelming or strong. I would love to try their stem cell mask as well. It must be a top product, since the others in this line are fantastic.
Did you ever use Lucrèce skincare products or heard of it? Inci Skin Care AS, located in Oslo, is actually the importer that brought the brand to Scandinavia.
