#BlogBash11 Sponsor: LUMIXYL Skin Brightening System

Take the makeup away and my guess is that most of us would wish for smoother, even toned, brighter skin. Otherwise we wouldn't wear makeup to give us that desired look, right? And how many of us have fallen for the false promises made for products largely advertised? I wish I could get back all the money I have spent on skin care products over the years! I'd be able to buy myself that new Canon camera I've had my eyes on.

I was recently given the opportunity to try LUMIXYL, a new and wonderful skin brightening system. Of course I was a bit skeptical about it, figuring it was just another gimmick. At first I was feeling a bit "eh" about it, not seeing much improvement in my skin. But I continued to use it, realizing that I was being irrational expecting immediate results. So I continued to use the step by step guidelines provided, as some of the products are to be used every other day, some specify AM or PM etc. The "How To" felt a little overwhelming when I first glanced at the chart but it was really easy to fall into a routine. And as I continued to use the LUMIXYL brightening system I slowly started to see some improvements in my skin. Instead of looking in the mirror and thinking "Man, I need a facial!" I started thinking "Hey, my skin looks pretty good today!" And that was without any makeup!

On thing I was worried about was how harsh would this be on my skin. I have very sensitive, fair skin.  It doesn't take much to set it a blaze. I have to say I was pleased in reading the product descriptions to see words like "natural", "non-toxic" and "gentle". At this point I can agree that it is a gentle, easy to use, system.

There is one downfall to the LUMIXYL system and that is the cost. To buy the system online, from Make Me Heal is $270. Yeah, that's quite a bit out of my budget range for skin care. That said, having used the products I do think it's something worth saving your pennies for.

Below is some *information about LUMIXYL:
There are few skin care systems available which can brighten and protect skin while removing sun damage, black heads and acne without the use of hydroquinone (HQ). Lumixyl made big news last year with its new peptide technology for evening out skin tone. Today, they have created a full skin brightening system of products around the Lumixyl Peptide technology.

This new Lumixyl Topical Brightening System is an effective four-part system used to get rid of sun damage, hyperpigmentation and melasma. Plus it is safe for all skin types and even helps with acne.  With Lumixyl, both men and women now have the easy access to achieve healthy and youthful looking skin without the use of needles or lasers.
Included in this daily skincare regimen is an anti-oxidant cleanser, the brightening crème (the real hero product), and a great glycolic exfoliating lotion, followed up with really elegant sunscreen (SPF30).  They all work together to give you amazing looking skin, clearing away old damaged skin and promoting healthier skin with one even skin-tone.  

Developed by Stanford University dermatological researchers to address mild to moderate hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone, Lumixyl is the first science-based alternative to safely and significantly brighten skin without the use of hydroquinone (HQ).  For years HQ has been the gold standard treatment for melasma, hyperpigmentation, sun spots and photodamage. But with serious side effects on the rise and the proposed ban on over-the-counter HQ products by the FDA, consumers and dermatologists are seeking safer and more effective alternatives.
