elure Review

I noticed a discoloration on my face a few months ago and was horrified to realize that it was a sun spot and that in fact I had several of these on my skin. After 38 years of sun exposure as a Florida native, I was diagnosed by my dermatologist as having hyperpigmentation of the skin. I wasn’t sure how to treat my sun spots because I did not want to use a chemical peel, lasers or skin bleaching creams.

Thankfully, I was introduced to a revolutionary new skin care product line, elure™ that was designed specifically for age spots, sun spots and ugly discolorations. Instead of using the traditional skin lightening ingredient, hydroquinone, the elure™ Advanced Skin Lightening Program features a brand new formula based on lignin peroxidase, which directly works to reduce melanin – the cause of discoloration in the skin.

How does it work? The main ingredient, lignin peroxidase is a “naturally occurring enzyme derived from a tree fungus and according to clinical trials is completely safe up to 17,000 times the recommended human dose.” It is reported to work by reducing uneven discoloration caused by aging and sun damage by gently reducing melanin in the skin, resulting in a lighter and brighter, more radiant complexion.

You can even check out this video segment featuring elure™ on the Today Show in addition to other nationwide media coverage.

After learning more about elure™, I knew that I wanted to try it on my sun spots. I committed to using this product line exclusively for at least thirty days so that I could determine accurately whether or not I was having positive results. I have very sensitive skin so my initial concern was that the elure™ Advanced Skin Lightening Lotion and the Advanced Lightening Night Cream would be too harsh and cause irritation. After seven days of usage of both products, applying the Advanced Skin Lightening Lotion in the morning and the Advanced Lightening Night Cream in the evening my skin had no signs of sensitivity or irritation and I began to notice subtle changes in that my skin had a more radiant, clear appearance. I really like the Advanced Facial Wash which has a wonderful lather and just a tiny amount of product leaves my skin feeling clean. I use it prior to applying the Skin Lightening Lotion and the Advanced Lightening Night Cream to ensure that these products can work best since dirt and dead skin cells have been washed away. After 30 days of use, my sun spots had definitely faded and my skin was responding really well with a more “youthful glow.” My skin is softer, smoother and even my husband commented that my “skin feels really nice” and asked if I was using a new product. I have continued to use this product on a regular basis and I am very impressed with the results. More importantly, I am pleased that there is a safer alternative to old fashioned treatments for hyperpigmentation.

I am always fascinated by the science behind new beauty products and the information about how elure™ works on the website is very interesting. I really like to look at the “before and after” photos too!

You can also read these Frequently Asked Questions which I find to be very helpful when learning about a new beauty product.

You are invited to visit elure™ to learn more about all three of the products in the Advanced Lightening Program. If you are frustrated with hyperpigmentation and are seeking a solution that really works then I can personally recommend elure™ based on my own experience in fading my sun spots and brightening the overall appearance of my skin. The elure™ Advanced Skin Lightening range is available exclusively through dermatologists, plastic surgeons, aesthetic practitioners and medispas, but does not require a prescription. You can use the Clinic Finder available at the elure™ website.
