I love discovering new products and finding a product that is affordable, effective and environmentally/socially responsible is like finding the holy grail for a beauty blogger.
I received a little package in the mail that when I opened it I swear rainbows, sunshine and heavenly music began to play… Good Karma Lux Age Defying Four-In-One Face Cream.
If you are a frequent reader of my blog you know that I’m a sucker for products that do double duty so they already had me with “Four-In-One”.
Before I jump into the what the product does and how it worked for me, I want to give you some info on this FANTASTIC brand.
Founded in 2013 by Cynthia Ransom, a holistic practitioner with a demanding schedule, who was compelled to create much needed skincare products that are convenient, affordable, luxurious and truly natural….but most importantly, proven to yield genuine results.
Desiring an effective yet simple anti-aging routine, she began creating products using holistic ingredients and a few secret weapons. Her skin repairing arsenal included a mystical formula received from her client, a 68 year old Shaman that Cynthia will tell you has “amazing skin!”
The Shaman (or ‘medicine woman’) partnered with Good Karma to share her seven oil formula she received in meditation; thus Lux 7 was born. Using the oil as the foundation, Cynthia worked with bio-chemists for over two years to perfect her nutrient dense formulations. Once finalized, simplifying the beauty process was realized by taking four of her products; a daily moisturizer, a skin refining serum, an eye cream and a night cream and combining them into ONE JAR. Thus Lux 7 All-in-One Face Cream was born.
Good Karma Skincare’s ingredients are derived from 100% natural and renewable resources. Cynthia’s Holistic background takes it even further, banning many unsafe natural and hidden ingredients commonly found in other products such as retinol, parabens, silicone and nano particles.
Good Karma proudly boasts; “We don’t test on animals, we feed them”! Yes, here’s one more fantastic thing about the brand: a portion of every sale supports their program Beauty feeds the Beasts™, which provides a meal for an animal in a shelter. Now that’s Good Karma!
What is it: Good Karma Lux 7 Face Cream is a day cream, night cream, refining serum and eye cream all in one jar.
What does it do: Designed to transform the appearance and texture of your complexion by stimulating collagen production and cell regeneration, this face cream will help your skin feel smoother, softer and clearer while giving a more a youthful radiance.
What’s in it: A proprietary blend of 7 cold pressed, organic & unrefined oils of Almond, Apricot, Avocado, Grapeseed, Olive, Sesame, & Vitamin E. KarmAloe™ (Good Karma’s proprietary aloe vera which is more than 10 times the potency of natural aloe vera), Date Seed Extract (helps minimize the formation and appearance of wrinkles and assists in reducing damage from environmental free radicals and rebuilding collagen for a younger-looking complexion), Blue Algae Extract (aids in tightening the skin by strengthening connective tissues and supporting collagen formation), all-natural anti-aging ingredients, such as sodium hyaluronate, one of nature’s top anti-aging weapons, boosting both elasticity and hydration, and the antioxidant enzyme CoQ10. Lightly scented with natural grapefruit. The cream comes in an airless container, which helps to protect the nutrient-dense formula from degrading from oxidation.
Why I love it: Hello, double (actually quadruple) duty! Moisturizer, serum, eye cream AND night cream all in one! Light, silky and deeply hydrating with a fresh clean grapefruit scent. My skin feels fantastic after application, it absorbs quickly and doesn’t sit on top of my skin- instead it allows skin to breathe. Leaves my complexion glowing, fresh and hydrated. I’m obsessed with the fact that there are no chemical nasties in the ingredients, no animal testing and that they bring beauty full circle with a part of the proceeds going to Beauty feeds the Beasts™. The air pump makes it really easy to portion out your application so as not to over use product- a little goes a long way with this power packed cream so one jar should last you quite awhile. I honestly am loving everything about this product.
