What do pearls, diamonds, and gold sapphires have it common? Of course, they are all gems that are valued not only for their beauty but also for the healing powers they are believed to hold. But did you know that these rare jewels are the key components found within a line of luxury skin care products? Read on to learn how Lionesse Gem Skin Care has incorporated some of the world’s most precious jewels into their line of skin care products and whether these products are worth the price tag.
Lionesse is a globally recognized luxury beauty brand offering over 100 different beauty products, including high-end makeup, hair tools and hair care, and skin care collections. The name “Lionesse” represents a woman that is resilient to society’s idea of beauty as she radiates splendor through her bare luminous skin. The brand believes that women are unique, strong, alluring, and fierce; just like a lionesse.
Lionesse Gem Skin Care is the brand’s newest luxury skin care line, with seven different collections that are infused with precious and semi-precious gems including amber, black onyx, diamond, gold sapphire, white pearl, opal, and morganite.
The brand conveys that they use gemstones in their skin care products not just because of their exotic nature and pleasing looks. Rather, Lionesse understands that gemstones can influence the human body in more ways than one. For instance, one of the biggest advantages that gemstones offer is their natural energy. It is believed that a gem has the power to radiate a unique glow and generate a balanced energy. Gemstones are successful in improving blood circulation as well as renewal of healthy skin cells, giving the user a more youthful complexion.
One of the key products of Lionesse Gem Skin Care is the White Pearl Day Moisturizer. Pearls have long been associated with wealth and elegance, but did you know that pearl powder has been used both internally and externally in Chinese medicine for thousands of years? When ingested, pearl powder acts as a powerful antioxidant, stimulates the regeneration of collagen, and is rich in amino acids and more than 30 trace minerals. When applied to the skin, such as with the White Pearl Day Moisturizer, pearl powder calms redness and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. In addition to the pearl powder infused within this moisturizer, you’ll also find sodium hyaluronate and glycerin. Both of these ingredients are well known for hydrating the skin, resulting in a firm, plump complexion.
Another popular product developed by Lionesse Gem Skin Care is the Black Onyx Mask. When applied to skin this unique formula has an instant warming effect to help eliminate dirt, oils, and other skin damaging pollutants. It is also infused with Sweet Almond Oil (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Seed Extract), which exerts many skin benefits. According to Dr. Axe, almond oil easily absorbs into skin where it can gently dislodge debris from deep within skin pores and follicles. Additionally, sweet almond oil may help prevent future acne because of its vitamin A content.
The Lionesse Gem Skin Care Amber New Age Syringe is said to immediately reduce the look of deep wrinkles while simultaneously moisturizing your skin. This product contains relatively common anti-aging skin care ingredients such as vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, and avocado oil. Curiously, the ingredients list for the Amber New Age Syringe does not even list Amber powder like the rest of the products in the Amber collection.
As mentioned above, each collection in the Lionesse Gem Skin Care line is based on a gemstone. Here is how each collection is said to benefit your skin:
- The White Pearl Collection is considered the starter collection with all of the essentials for basic skin care
- The Amber Collection focuses on skin concerns specifically around the eye area
- The Black Onyx Collection is the anti-aging collection that works through thermal/heating effects
- The Diamond Collection is formulated for those with dry skin as it provides intense moisture and hydration
- The Gold Sapphire Collection is known as the skin rejuvenation collection for its calming and restorative ingredients
In addition to the skin benefits from the gemstones, the Lionesse Gem Skin Care line also contains a number of very common ingredients, like aloe vera, glycerin, and hyaluronic acid, among others.
Reviews on the Lionesse Gem Skin Care line of products are scarce, most likely due to the incredibly high price tags on these jeweled skin care products. While the least expensive products of this line will cost you several hundred dollars, the products range all the way up to $4,000 or more! Obviously, the Lionesse Gem Skin Care products are out of reach for those who don’t want to spend thousands of dollars on skin care products.
The few reviews that can be found for Lionesse Gem Skin Care (mostly from beauty editors and bloggers) concur that these products really do help your skin to glow like a gem. A review on the Lionesse Diamond Rejuvenation Face Mask by StyleCaster stated that this product did make her skin “glow like a diamond” but that it simply wasn’t worth it for the price.
In sum, the Lionesse Gem Skin Care line is a luxury, very high-end line of skin care products infused with precious and semi-precious gems for an indulgent experience, but with a very high price tag.
