I have a friend who works in marketing, and she asked me, not long ago, if I would be interested in being part of a "focus group" for a new skincare product, Luminique. I laughed it off and told her no, but she responded by telling me that she really felt like the product would work, and that it would be a perfect solution to some of my own skin problems. To be more specific, I have always had a very uneven complexion. There are spots on my face that are simply a lot darker than the rest of the skin, almost like sun spots or areas with really heavily concentrated freckles. It makes it look like I have sun damage and don't take care of my skin well, when in reality my doctors have always said that it's just a genetic thing. So I reluctantly agreed to try Luminique, but now my enthusiasm for the product could not be greater. This stuff really works, and I'm as surprised as anyone to admit it. I know these products all seem risky, but Luminique totally evened out the appearance of my face and blended those dark spots with the rest of my skin. Best of all, it seems like it has brought a whole new level of brightness to my face-- look at me now and it's like I'm just glowing, where before my skin just looked dark and unhealthy. I could not be more pleased with this wonderful Luminique product. I don't know that I've ever used any beauty product that worked as well as this one. Highly recommended to anyone who suffers from a dark or uneven and unhealthy-looking complextion. Luminique is the real deal.
