PRODUCT: Lumafirm Freeze-Dried At Home Intensifier
Here's a product that will pleasantly surprise. Lumafirm Freeze-Dried At Home Intensifier ($20) from Prevonia is a little disc full of freeze-dried ingredients that when applied with water, truly gave my face, neck and decollete an instant lift by way of tightening, lightening and evening out skin tone.

But I found the experience to be pleasant and easy. As recommended, I followed the treatment with the Lumafirm Repair Cream.
The most obvious effect for me was the skin tightening - my face and decollete seemed much perkier. Also, my skin tone was noticiably more even and my skin texture more smooth. After applying moisturizer, the Lumafirm treatment provided the perfect canvas for creating a fantastic look for a holiday night out.
Lumafirm Freeze-Dried At Home Intensifier is part of the Pevonia Botanica lineup of at-home and spa treatment products. The company prides itself on using pure holistic botanical and marine elements and biodegradable or resusable packaging. For more information, visit www.ShopPevonia.com.
