The Lucia Magnani Skincare Review (AD)
Skincare has always had a special place in my heart, and it's something that as a love for it has grown, I've developed a serious interest in it. Which means that I don't have time for products that don't work. But for the past few weeks and in preparation for the launch of Lucia Magnani Skincare at Harvey Nichols, Manchester, I've been trying it out, ready to share my completely honest thoughts.
And it's honestly good. Really good.
Let's start with a basic - a moisturiser which in the case of Lucia Magnani, is called the Daily Firming Hydrator. Surprisingly, this doesn't have the thick texture that you might expect from a moisturiser but instead feels really lightweight on the skin. Not only does it smell incredible, but it's also packed full of moisturising ingredients like Q10, Vitamin E and Alpha Lipoic acid, the combination of which works wonders on the skin. I was initially slightly confused as to how such a light moisturiser would work in the chill of winter, but I can honestly say that it hasn't had any negative effects upon the moisture levels of my skin but has kept my skin soft and supple. It also works really well with a full face of makeup as it contains glycerin (a key ingredient in primers). Plus, the packaging is stunning.
Another moisturising favourite has to be the Rejuvenating Eye Cream. And honestly, I seriously struggle with eye creams as their one of the few skincare products where you don't really notice a difference until years down the line. But for an eye cream, I've been pleasantly surprised. The texture of the cream is incredibly thick and reminiscent of products like the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Night Cream so I prefer to apply this in the evening. I tap this on using my ring finger and don't attempt to rub it all in. Despite it being so thick, it does sink in relatively quickly. I'm currently in the midst of deadline season and have really noticed a difference with how hydrated my under eyes have felt and a general reduction in puffy eyes. Only time will tell with this ultimately, but I'm so pleased with the short-term results!
Masks are potentially my favourite skincare item, so the prospect of the Retexturising Radiance Mask was something I was unbelievably excited about. But unlike what you may expect from any mask that improves radiance, this is a clay mask. Honestly, this is not like any clay mask I've tried. Clay masks are often fairly drying, so the fact that this mask left my skin soft and supple, was incredible. The mask is honestly the whole experience, it smells incredible and acts as an astringent so pulls all the gunk out of your skin. Its quickly become my go-to mask for improving pretty much everything from redness to texture. This is probably my favourite product from the range and the one I'd definitely recommend trying if you only want to try one product!
Overall, I'm so impressed with the skincare range as a whole - from the packaging to the products, it's evident that so much thought and care has been put into each product. It's currently exclusively available on Harvey Nichols - worth checking out the products if you have a chance!
What do you think of the skincare range? Which product sounds like it'd be your favourite?
