Neocutis Lumiere Eye Cream New Packaging

The manufacturer of Neocutis has updated the packaging of both Lumiere products to a new, more modern look. They have also slightly changed product names, resulting in a lot of confusion around these popular products. This post details the changes to both Neocutis Lumiere and Neocutis Lumiere Riche.

First, don’t worry! The product formulas have not changed in any way. The only changes are to the names of the products and the packaging. Both Lumiere and Lumiere Riche remain the exact same effective eye creams with PSP as before.

Here are some of the changes to the packaging:

You’ll notice the new boxes are safety sealed in a different manner. Neocutis is no longer using cellophane to wrap products, but has moved to circular seals on both ends of the boxes. The boxes are also slightly smaller and sport a new font with the product name in lower case letters.

One of the more noticeable changes to the product names is the removal of the words “Bio-restorative” and “Powered by PSP”. Both products are now designated “Illuminating Eye Cream”, however both products still contain PSP.

Neocutis Lumiere Bio-Restorative Eye Cream is now  Neocutis Lumiere Illuminating Eye Cream

Neocutis Lumiere Bio-restorative Eye Balm is now Neocutis Riche Extra Moisturizing Illuminating Eye Cream, losing the “balm” designation:

Despite their smaller size, both old and new packaging contain the exact same amount of product, 0.5 oz or 15 ml.

 

Additionally, we have seen similar changes to the Neocutis Bio-Serum product and expect all Neocutis products will soon follow suit.

 

We hope this helps clarify any confusion around the new packaging. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

8 Tips for Better Looking Skin

1b622915bd2503f5_woman-drinking-water1. Sweat everyday. Unfortunately, sweating has gotten a bad reputation. Sweating does not cause acne. In fact, sweating is actually your body’s way of helping to keep your skin clean. Breaking a sweat once a day will make your skin glow, as exercise improves your circulation and oxygen levels and will result in a gorgeous complexion.

2. Disinfect your cellphone.  According to recent studies, that smartphone you can’t keep your hands off of can have 18 times more harmful bacteria, including Staph, E.Coli and Salmonella, than a public toilet handle. All those germs land right on your cheek and jawline every time you chat away, causing pimples and irritation. To keep your phone (and face) bacteria-free, Continue Reading →

How to Layer Your Skin Care Products

layeringblogimageWhen it comes to layering your skincare products, there’s a right way and a wrong way. In fact, the order in which you apply your products is just as important as what’s inside them. You know the first step to use a cleanser, then a toner…but what comes next?  Don’t fret. Learn to layer products like a pro, with our guide to skin care layering below.

Morning regimen order

1. As a general rule, apply your lightest product first. Serums, which can range in texture from liquid to gels are applied first because they deliver the highest concentrated of active ingredients most efficiently. Pick two or three serums that each treat one of your concerns. For wrinkles, we recommend formulations with added peptides, like PCA Skin ExLinea Peptide Smoothing Serum. Look for serums, like SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Defense, that contain salicylic acid is best for oily skin types.

2. Use targeted treatments for problem areas nextlike Murad Acne Spot Fast Fix on that persistent blemish, or cover your crow’s feet with your favorite eye cream. We recommend one with an SPF like DDF Protective Eye Cream SPF 15 or Dermalogica Travel Size Total Eye Care SPF 15.

3. Then, apply full-face treatments, like an antioxidant treatment or acne treatment for the entire face.

4. Moisturize to seal in your other products. Facial oils, like John Masters Organics Pomegranate Facial Nourishing Oil or Rodial Stemcell Super-Food Facial Oil, can be applied after to any dry spots you find after moisturizing. If you’re using two or more serums under your moisturizer, skip any facial oils to avoid becoming too greasy. Remember, facial oils can penetrate moisturizers but not vice versa, so always apply your moisturizer before a facial oil. If you choose a moisturizer with an SPF, opt for one with UVA/UVB broad spectrum protection with a minimum SPF of 30. We recommend a lightweight, oil-free moisturizing SPF, like Elta MD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46.

5. SPF. You’ve heard it a million times, but we’ll say it a million-and-one. Never leave home without an SPF on your face. We’ll leave it at that.

Night regimen order

1. Retinols need to be applied directly to clean skin to be most effective. However, if you have sensitive skin, applying a serum or moisturizer before hand will help the retinol to penetrate with less irritation.

2. After your first layer has absorbed, apply any targeted treatments, like a rich eye cream (we recommend Neocutis Lumiere Riche Bio-Restorative Eye Balm), or if you have any other spot specific treatments, like NeoStrata HQ Skin Lightening Gel for dark spots and discoloration, now is the time to apply.

3. Finish with a moisturizer.  Apply a heavier night cream, like SkinCeuticals Emollience, for drier skin types. If you have oily skin, opt for a lotion, instead of a cream as they are less hydrating. Many are specifically for problem or acne-prone skin. We like Jan Marini Bioglycolic Bioclear Face Lotion.

Morning or evening, remember to wait for a few minutes between for each layer to allow for the product to absorb.  This way each product is able to penetrate and deliver its specific benefits without interfering with the function of the next product layer.

5 Skincare Mistakes You Don’t Want to Make

skin-care-mistakesSkin Care regimens can quickly get complicated and confusing when using multiple products. Be sure you are not making one of the 5 common mistakes below!

1.) Forgetting about Your Neck

Most people think of the face when you mention anti-aging products, but neglecting your neck is a sure-fire way to show your age before you’re ready. The fragile skin on your neck and décolletage has different needs from the skin of your face, and if not protected and nourished appropriately can lose hydration and look flabby. Try Revision Nectifirm to cater to the neck’s specific needs with 8 active ingredients working together to strengthen the dermal-epidermal junction.

2.) Not Eating Correctly

In addition to topical creams and serums, the optimum anti-aging skincare regimen includes Continue Reading →

5 Reasons to Add Masks to Your Regimen

mask1. Masks are powerfully concentrated. Masks are able to contain these higher levels of key ingredients because chemists do not have to be concerned with how blendable a product is that is rinsed off after a few minutes – or thrown away, if you use a sheet mask. Sheet masks, like SkinCeuticals Biocellulose Restorative Masqueare single-use masks that are individually sealed. These masks have extra muscle because they are sealed and protected from the air, which oxidizes and weakens many of the key ingredients.

2. Masks enhance the products in your regimen. You can achieve quicker and even better results, if you Continue Reading →

To Squeeze or Not to Squeeze?

Pop-A-PimpleAn unexpected whopper just showed up on your face. Like a mosquito bite or scab, you want to touch it. You want to pick at it. You really, really want to pop it. But should you? While most skin care professionals would prefer you left it alone, the truth is that YES, you can – but only if your blemish is white. Here’s how: On clean skin, use two Q-tips to gently press on either side of the blemish. Dab what comes out with a tissue (if you see blood or feel pain, stop!), then use an antibiotic spot treatment. We recommend Murad Acne Spot Fast Fix, Dr. Dennis Gross Correct and Perfect Spot Treatment, and Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Emergency Spot Fix. After that, hands off!
