As a lover of all things natural and vegan I was very excited to put a few of Lumiora’s botanical skincare blends to the test.
Lumiora NZ was crafted from the hearts of a family in need. With three members diagnosed with eczema, they tried all the creams and soaps out there but to no avail. Taking things into their own hands, they embarked on the journey of creating their own natural skincare products, products that are healthier and gentler on skin, and they haven’t looked back.
The meaning behind the name is very special and harnesses the intention behind the brand. In their words; “Lumiora is a combination of two words that forms the essence of why we embarked on this journey. LUMI derives from the Latin word lumen which means light and ORA is a Maori word that means to be healthy.”
Lumiora believes in the power of nature, each ingredient is carefully selected and researched to create skincare blends that are simple yet potent in healing, without any unnatural additives, fillers or preservatives.
I was sent their divine Lavender Body Butter, Colloidal Oats Body Scrub and a “Calm” Aromatherapy Roll On.
I get super dry skin on my legs and arms, so I’m always on the lookout for a effective natural body moisturizer. I used the body butter last night before bed and then again this morning and I can safely say it is one of the nicest body butters I’ve ever used, no joke. It is so creamy and light, goes on super smooth and doesn’t stay greasy how some natural body butters do. The natural NZ Lavender is lovely and relaxing especially before bed. Skin feels great and it will now be a staple in my evening skincare routine!
The Colloidal Oats Body Scrub is a blend of Oats, Sugar, Lavender oil, Chamomile oil and Jojoba oil. The mix is really soft feeling, (but still scrubby) unlike other sugar scrubs which can feel harsh on the skin. I loved how it wasn’t overly oily but still left my skin feeling soft and moisturized. They recommend using the scrub 2-3 times a week for the best results.
Roll on natural fragrances are my favourite. They fit easily in your handbag or pocket to whip out when the need arises. I like to keep one in the car’s centre console as I’m in the car everyday and it has become a daily ritual of mine to quickly roll it on my wrists and neck. My current one has actually JUST run out so this is perfect timing to replace it with Lumiora’s “Calm” Aromatherapy Roll On which is a calming blend of Lavender, Chamomile and Cedarwood essential oils, selected to help you stay grounded, relieve stress and anxiety. I can’t wait to use this on the daily as it really does smell incredible, plus my 2 year old was all about it!
