A Luzern Labs Gift for Bare Beauty Readers

I’ve written about Ayla Beauty many times (like here, here and here for starters) because it is one of the best places to shop for Green skincare; their customer service is incredible and they carry effective, hard-to-find product lines.  One of my personal favorites is Luzern Laboratories.

Luzern doesn’t use Parabens, DMDM Hydantoin, Urea, Triclosan, Phenoxyethanol, Ethanol, Denatured Alcohol, Ethyl Alcohol, Methanol, Isopropyl Alcohol, SD Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol, Propylene Glycol, PEG’s, Phthalates, Benzoyl Peroxide, DEA, TEA, MEA, Sulfates, Chemical Sunscreens, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Sodium Hydroxide, or Synthetic Colors, Dyes or Fragrances.  And, just in case you were wondering, according to Luzern, the Pure Cleansing Gelee is a favorite of Emma Watson, Jennifer Aniston buys the Serum V12 in multiples, and Melania Trump has the Force de Vie Creme Luxe hand-delivered to her apartment.

If you’ve been meaning to try Luzern, now is the time.  This week, Ayla is giving away a full-size Luzern Mico-Exfoliant (a $38 value) to the first 5 Bare Beauty Readers who place a $200+ Luzern order.  I thought I would tell you about some of my favorite Luzern products to help you make your selections!



I use Luzern Serum Absolut Au Vin on a daily basis and it’s a product I never want to go without.  Every time I suspend its use to experiment with something else, I’m sorry.  It’s a great AHA treatment for those who are sensitive to retinol; the exfoliating power gently reveals fresh, glowing skin while unclogging pores and minimizing fine lines.  I use it as part of my nighttime routine, but its antioxidants attack free radicals, so it’s great for day, too, as long as you wear sunscreen.  Bottom line: you won’t be sorry.  Cost: $90 for 1 oz.  Purchase it here.


Luzern La Defense SPF 30 is the daily sunscreen you’ve been waiting for.  It’s Clean, it has broad spectrum protection and it contains lots of active, anti-aging ingredients so you don’t have to wear an additional daytime anti-aging moisturizer.  And its gentle, light-weight hydration truly make it suitable for any skin type, including for those with acne, rosacea, eczema as well as those with extremely sensitive skin.  Cost: $45 for 1.3 oz.  Purchase it here.


And if you want everything Luzern La Defense has to offer plus the benefit of a tinted moisturizer, you need Luzern Bio-Suisse BB Cream.  It contains complexion-correcting mineral pigments that create a soft-focus effect and it leaves a semi-matte finish.  It is my go-to tinted moisturizer this Winter!  Cost: $55 for 1.3 oz.  Available in Light or Medium (I use Medium).  Purchase it here.


Ayla Beauty Founder, Dara Kennedy, has a funny story behind Luzern’s Force de Vie Micro-Gel:  When my skin was oily-combination, the Micro-Gel was my holy grail product.  Luzern stopped making it several years ago, and I was so devoted to it that I bought every bottle left in the country and got all of the shops/spas I bought from to ask Luzern to start making it again. Once I partnered up with them as a retailer myself, they found out what had happened!  There’s really nothing like it.  It balances oily spots and leaves skin looking dewy and glowy, but not oily in the least.  I’ve started using it myself, and I LOVE it.  It is truly a unique, amazing product.  Cost: $90 for 1 oz.  Purchase it here.



It is really difficult to find a mask that will intensely moisturize while exfoliating and brightening the skin.  Usually, you have to choose between the two or use multiple products.  Luzern’s Hydra-Enzyme Mask is like no mask I’ve ever tried.  It is a must for those will dry, lackluster complexions (that would be most of us, come Winter).  Those with aging skin will not be disappointed in this baby.  Cost: $65 for 2 oz.  Purchase it here.


La Mer fans, listen up.  This best-seller is the creme you should be using.  Luzern Force De Vie Créme Luxe combines powerful anti-aging ingredients with an intense, non-comedogenic moisturizing formula that diminishes fine lines and leaves skin feeling firm and smooth.  It has a cult-following for a reason.  Cost: $145 for 2 oz.  Purchase it here.

So, hop to it and be one of the first five – place your Luzern order now at Ayla Beauty and include “BARE BEAUTY” in the comments section for your full-size treat.  I can’t wait to hear your love letters after you become part of the Luzern Cult.
