Lumixyl Brightening System Review

Until I became pregnant with my first child, I had always considered my skin to be my best feature. Then I began to notice subtle changes during the pregnancy and then subsequently had two more back to back pregnancies. After the third pregnancy, I noticed that my skin was dull, splotchy and the effects of sun damage were more evident.

Despite using several excellent products from other lines I have never been able to feel confident that my skin looked as good as it did before my three pregnancies………until I tried the Lumixyl™ Brightening System.

The revolutionary Lumixyl™ Brightening System uses synthetic peptide technology and was created to dramatically improve mild to moderate hyperpigmentation with none of the potential problems or side effects associated with Retinoids and Hydroquinone. This four step system contains an Active-Prep Cleanser, Topical Brightening Crème, GlycoPeel 20 Rapid Exfoliating Lotion and Moisture-Lock Sunscreen SPF 30. I was drawn to this system originally because it is designed for all skin types so I wasn’t as worried initially about using it on my sensitive prone skin and I really appreciate that it is made using non-toxic ingredients.

I committed to using the Lumixyl™ Brightening System with no other products for a minimum of 14 days before writing this review and was very pleased that other than a slight tingling on my face, I did not have any irritation, burning or increased sensitivity. In fact, Lumixyl™ is even safe for prolonged use.

It is important to note that most Lumixyl™ users should see an improvement in their skin within an 8-12 week time frame. However the two weeks that I set as a time frame for myself has been enough for me to see definite changes as evidenced by brighter, smoother and clearer skin.

Lumixyl can be used for the following conditions:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Prevent Photo-Damage or Uneven Skin Tone
  • Age Spots
  • Sun Spots

How does the Lumixyl™ Brightening System work? To make sure that I was applying it properly, I appreciated that the kit includes a detailed information sheet that gives clear instructions for how to use this system.

I started with Level 1 by using a small amount of the Active Prep Cleanser on my damp skin in the morning and again at night. My skin felt very clean yet it was not dry at all. Next, I massaged two drops of the Lumixyl™ Topical Brightening Crème both morning and night into my skin to produce a very pleasant exfoliating effect. Of all the products, this is my favorite and produced the most noticeable results in my opinion….I love it! I also used the GlycoPeel 20 every other day as it works synergistically with the Topical Brightening Crème and I loved how soft and smooth my skin felt after each use. Though there was a tiny bit of tingling, I have sensitive skin so I was quite impressed that there wasn’t any noticeable adverse reaction to this product (I was initially very worried that I would have a chemical burn). Finally, having been diagnosed recently with skin cancer on my neck, I really like the results of the MoistureLock Sunscreen SPF 30. I have used many different sunscreens but this is like the “Cadillac” of products in my opinion. It glides on smoothly, absorbs effortlessly into the skin and really provides me with good daily protection from the sun (I do use a higher SPF when out in the Florida sun).

What are the benefits of using the Lumixyl™ Brightening System according to Envy Medical:

  • Non-irritating or allergenic
  • Non-toxic
  • Safe for all skin types
  • Safe for prolonged use
  • Easily degraded by the skin
  • Will not increase skin’s sensitivity to the sun
  • Stabilized so that it will not lose potency or turn brown after opening
  • A luxurious, moisture-rich texture

In conclusion, do I think the Lumixyl™ Brightening System is worth the money? Any time a product costs a significant amount of money I ask myself if it is truly worth the investment. When I consider the cost of visiting a dermatologist and having multiple cosmetic procedures in my pursuit of healthier appearing skin then I consider the Lumixyl™ Brightening System a luxurious kit that really provides results as promised and is in actuality a real bargain. For me it is not only the appearance of my skin but after my skin cancer scare, I truly want my skin to be as healthy as possible. I will continue to use the Lumixyl™ Brightening System for the recommended 8-12 weeks and I am very excited to see the final results.

To learn more about the science behind the Lumixyl™ Brightening System you are invited to visit the makers at the Envy Medical website. There is a treasure trove of information about all of the products in the Lumixyl™ line so you can find the right fit for your skin care needs.

I also found the Frequently Asked Questions section of the website to be very helpful in learning about the “do’s and don’ts” of using Lumixyl™.

You can purchase the entire Lumixyl™ Brightening System for only $270.
