How to get bright, firm and glowy skin. It worked for me.

Ok, so we had already talked about the importance of cleaning your face the proper way using the right daily moisturizer for your skin type and not over exfoliate your skin.


In my previous blog post (click here if you missed it and want to read it) I also recommended you some of the products that I use on a daily basis from Quench Micro Water Complex.

This is the set

Now I am going to give you some extra tips and recommendations for you to achieve a brighter, healthier looking, glowy skin. This is not a sponsored post. As always, all my opinions are based of my personal experience (me trying these products for more than 2 months).

With that being said, I am very happy with the result after using the Luxology Retinol Concentrate and the Dermatologica Biolumin-C Serum.


Hello, brighter skin!

Letting aside the fact that this cream stood out for me from the get – go: the gold rose appeal, the name of the brand ¨Luxology¨ haha and the 24 KT, I have been using it every evening before bed.



I have sensitive skin so, at first, I was a bit hesitant because on the package it’s saying that it can cause redness due to Retinol.  My skin gets red very fast but I gave it a try. Now I can say that this face cream it’s a keeper and it’s going into my night-time routine.

As I said, I apply it to clean dry skin before going to bed. The first 5 seconds you will feel a sensation of tightness which is normal and means that the product is working. Call me weird, but I love this sensation. Then, when you wake up, you will notice a striking difference.  That is what convinced me. My skin looked flawless and so bright and fresh that I didn’t even had to apply something else.

In the mornings, me and my little girl, Joellen, have a routine morning walk so I was so happy that I didn’t have to worry much about getting ready. My skin looks good every morning and all that I do is to put my hair in a ponytail, get dressed, and get out the door.

I have been using it now for more than 2 months and I am really impressed with it!


Hello, firmer skin!

This is the second recommendation:  the Dermatologica Biolumin-C serum.


This product got my attention from the first use. One morning  I was in a hurry and because I’ve just arrived home from a long trip I didn’t get the chance to unpack. I didn’t have time to go and search into my makeup bag, so I just grabbed the first thing that was in my drawer that could replace my daily moisturizer – this serum.

I am one of those persons that likes to stick with a routine and an organized schedule even when it comes to makeup, but this time around I needed to be heading outside my home. Let’s just say that punctuality is more important to me than sticking to my makeup routine. Priorities! I was ready to apply my foundation, but I needed my skin to be ready.

I grabbed the serum and used it as a base for my foundation. I didn’t regret it! My makeup looked flawless all day long and I felt my skin firmer having the serum as a makeup base. Everything happens for a reason, people, haha!

I continued to use it afterwards and now I am thinking to replace it for – e – ver. It´s very rarely for me to fall in love with a product so hard, but it happened. That’s why I’m writing about it.

Using these 2 beauties daily: the Luxology cream in the evening and the serum as a makeup base, my skin has never looked and felt so healthy, bright, and firm.

Try them both and let me know what you think!

*Be aware that you’re not going to see the best results using these cream/serum if you don’t get enough sleep (I am guilty of this) or if you don’t watch what you eat.
