LADY SOMA'S SOMALUXE Skincare : Review



Hi there, my darlings! Recently, I received an email from the lovely ladies at Lady Soma with the opportunity to review a couple of their products. Once taking a look at their site, I immediately knew what I would have liked to try and share with you all. But, a week or so later, when a package from Lady Soma arrived, imagine my surprise when it included several of their products, most of which seemed almost hand-picked for me! At that point, I already was impressed that they would take the time to get to know a blog--now I could be wrong, but it certainly seemed that someone looked me up! So, what was in this box? Let's take a look!



FIRMING LOTION: FACE & BODY ($42.99):

Designed to smooth, tone and tighten skin. Multiple vitamins and enzymes in the formula moisturize and strengthen the skin structure to achieve visibly firmer skin. Can be used as an effective treatment for eye wrinkles, uneven skin tone, cellulite, and loose facial or body skin. The lotion is free of harmful chemicals, is dermatologically tested, and made in the U.S.A. 8oz 236ml

This is a large 8oz sized bottle has the same firming power usually found in smaller jars, and will last a long time. This is a money saver! Gentle enough for use on face – strong enough to be effective on the body.

  • Reduces fine line by boosting collagen and elastin 
  • Contains a high concentration of firming peptides
  • Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamin C
  • Tones loose and wrinkled skin on face, neck and body

IMPRESSIONS : I was the most excited about this product but right off the bat, I have to be honest and admit I didn't see any radical firming of any area of my body after a few weeks of use. I used it mainly on my upper arms where I could use a little firming but again, no real noticeable difference.
That being said, however, the lotion itself is fabulous! Intensely scented with a floral bouquet, I love how GOOD this smells! Add that to how quickly it absorbs and how luxurious it makes my skin feel and I'd say we have a winner on our hands!





STEM CELL + PEPTIDE COMPLEX ($54.99) :

Plant stem cells, peptides and amino acids in one advanced anti-aging formula. Stimulates new skin cells, collagen production and skin cell longevity. Peptides and botanicals soften skin texture and add firmness. Use once per day, morning or night.

The unique combination of peptides and hyaluronic acid repair age damage, plump, and bring skin back to a healthy foundation. It contains a high concentration of Hyaluronic Acid, Organic Coconut, and Vitamin C for skin healing. Long term use of this product leads to clear, luminous skin and over time fine lines and wrinkles are less visible. The product is moisturizing enough to be used as a moisturizer (i.e. you will not need to apply additional moisturizer). 2oz 59g.

  • Powerful anti-wrinkle therapy improves tone and texture
  • Organic Plant Stem Cells from the Globularia Cordifolia Flower
  • Botanical Hyaluronic Acid from the Cassia Angustifolia Seed
  • Can be used daily, or as an occasional treatment

IMPRESSIONS : I'm usually really picky when it comes to facial moisturizers but I have to admit I liked this one. It left my skin feeling really hydrated and moisturized, yup, I'm gonna say it, plump! But to a girl who's used to gel formulas, it's still a bit on the thicker side for this weather so it's something I'm saving to use more extensively during the colder months.




SKIN & NAIL TREATMENT ($14.00) :
The Skin & Nail Treatment is a deep moisturizer that repairs dry skin. Specifically formulated for skin and nails, it promotes a soft supple cuticle, while repairing existing hand and nail damage. Enhances nails for a shiny appearance and healthy looking cuticles. Treatment may also be used on body in areas where dry skin is present. Excellent for healing scars and stretch marks.

The formula is 100% natural, paraben and chemical free. It is hypoallergenic, gentle and can be used for all skin types.


IMPRESSIONS : Ok...this is my favorite product, hands-down, of the bunch! As many of you know, after long nights of swatching, my hands and cuticles are just ragged...and often raw from all the acetone. I'm always looking for good hand creams to help moisturize after those kind of nights and this one is a fantastic addition to my arsenal. The thick, velvety formula goes on like...heavy cream but absorbs in impossibly quickly, leaving my hands soft, smooth and feeling SO much better! And the cocoa butter in this makes it smell like...dessert! That's the only way I know how to put it--it has a chocolate-y fragrance that's divine!




LIP RESCUE ($22.99) :

Rich blend of soothing restorative ingredients to moisturize and strengthen lips. Provides long lasting lip moisture and restores lip vitality using powerful moisturizing and plumping agents that promote lip collagen and elastin. Use as a daily lip balm, or special treatment to fill in fine lines. Repairs lip damaged by wind, sun or severe dryness. You can expect results just after one application. 1 oz.

  • Long lasting moisture for dry lips
  • Reduces the appearance lip lines
  • Prevents premature lip wrinkles
  • Improves lip density for plumper lips

IMPRESSIONS : Incredibly luxurious and moisturizing, this was one of my favorite products among the items I was sent. I have the awful habit of licking my lips a lot, especially when they get particularly dry in the colder months, and this wreaks havoc on my lips. I'm obsessed with lip balms, especially during the winter, and I can see myself reaching for this over and over again. I just wish this was in a tube rather than a little jar--it would have made it so much more portable!




RASPBERRY RED LIP GLOSS ($8.99):

Add a brilliant red shimmer to lips, using an organic blend of antioxidant rich ingredients and herbal extracts. Contains omega rich pigments that protect lips from the signs of aging. The cocoa and shea butter in the formula moisturize lips, while raspberry and natural minerals provides a red, rich shimmer. Wear alone for a glossy finish or on top of lipstick for a more dramatic look. 0.3oz.

  • Contains pomegranate and vitamin e
  • Cleanses and strengthens
  • Organic ingredients & plant extracts
  • Free of synthetic chemicals

IMPRESSIONS : I really loved this little tin of balm! The gloss itself is light and silky, without being too sticky or tacky and the raspberry flavor, if you happen to like fruity flavors like me, is just lovely. Although like the lip rescue, I wish this came in a tube rather than a tin, this gloss is perfect for those days when you want just a hint of color on your lips but don't want to commit to a lipstick!
