Luminous. What does that word bring to your mind? When I think of luminous, the words that come to my mind are healthy, happy, and smiling. Some things that make me feel luminous: spending time walking through the park with my family, bike rides in the warm sunshine, and most recently a visit to the zoo for the first time with my two year old. These things make me feel good on the inside, and when you feel good on the inside, you look better on the outside too!
Good skin care is also an important factor to feeling luminous. POND'S new Luminous line aims to keep your skin looking at its best all day. It includes Wet Cleaning Towelettes, moisturizer, and skin cleansers to brighten dull skin.
I love using the Daily Exfoliating Cleanser in the morning. It contains Kaolin clay and makes my face really smooth without leaving it feeling dry. ( I'm not a big fan of its floral perfumey scent, but it isn't a harsh smell.) I alternate that with the Cream Cleanser on days I don't need exfoliation. Both are hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested and neither feel harsh on my sensitive skin.
Before putting on my foundation, moisturizer with SPF is a must. POND'S Luminous Moisture with SPF 15 wasn't quite enough moisture for me. It's light and I think I need something a bit thicker to help my very dry skin.
My favorite part of the Luminous Line is definitely the Wet Cleansing Towelettes. These little wonders are perfect at the end of a long day when all I want to do is fall into bed. It hardly takes a minute to wipe off all the make-up, dirt, and unknown substances my toddler may have stuck to my face. These are awesome for tired moms!
