Luminyze is a cream that claims to lighten the skin, as well as improve the overall color and texture of the skin. It claims to reduce the appearance of age spots and other discolorations of the face. Its overall goal is to restore the natural glow of the skin. It claims that it does not use any hydroquinone, which is a melanin blocker. Melanin darkens the skin. There has been some controversy surrounding hydroquinone, but overall it is a product that is generally thought to be safe for consumers in regular concentrations.
History of Luminyze
Luminyze was created to lighten and whiten the skin, sold by third parties, and does not include a list of ingredients. This makes it very difficult to analyze whether or not this is an effective lightener or any anti-aging properties. When a company doesn’t provide a list of ingredients, we can only assume that they are not proud of what those ingredients are.
The product isn’t particularly expensive. Luminyze cost about $50 for 3 fl. oz. which is cheap for a lightening or anti-aging cream.
Possible Side Effects
Really anything could happen when you use a product without knowing what is in it. Because we don’t know the ingredients, we don’t know if the product contains irritants, allergens, harsh chemicals, or many other things that consumers should avoid.
When you are shopping for anti-aging or lightening creams, or really any product, you want to be assured that it is of good quality and a worthwhile expense. This product does not offer any sort of guarantee and it does not inform its customers. The only way to truly know if it works is to buy the product, and that is the kind of risk that a careful consumer should not take. Look for ingredients and read labels and be informed before you buy.
