Sunday Riley

I have been dying to try some products from this line!! I have had my eye on the Luna Sleeping Night 
Oil for so long! I couldn't get this stuff on my face fast enough. I've been using the SPF and the night oil for over a week now. Here are my thoughts!


Cashmere SPF 30

What is is formulated to do: "This powerful sunscreen, with its luxurious texture and finish, provides weightless hydration without any white streaks or typical oiliness. The formula detoxifies the skin and provides continuing anti-pollution protection. With use, skin feels softer, looks more youthful, and is protected from the daily assault of UV and pollution."

My thoughts: It is a nice lightweight daytime moisturizer. It is not oily in the slightest. In fact it may be on the dry side. If you have oily skin this is a great option for you! I had no skin irritation with this at all. Be sure to rub it in really well or it can leave a bit of a film. I like that it's not a super oily sunscreen, especially since I live in the South with high humidity.


Luna Sleeping Night Oil

What it is formulated to do: "With an advanced retinol complex, Luna helps reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles while simultaneously correcting damage caused by the sun, time, and pollution. Use this oil before bed to notice firmer, clearer skin by morning. Trans-retinol ester fights the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of skin elasticity while an essential oil complex calms and soothes skin. Cold pressed avocado, chia, and Concord grape seed oils sink into skin for quick absorption of actives while boosting radiance."

My thoughts: Before I even tried this I was already obsessed with it! A retinol that comes in a luxurious oil is pure genius! I love face oils (even though my sensitive skin isn't always crazy about them). It comes in a dropper bottle, which I always like. The oil itself is actually blue tinted and for some reason that made me like it even more. Don't worry your face won't be blue! It glides right on like a dream, and feels like heaven! So far no irritation, peeling, or redness. It seems to be very gentle. The first couple of nights I did notice a few little bumps (probably junk it pulled to the surface). It wasn't a breakout by any means and hasn't been an issue. I can't tell any major results yet, but my skin feels glowing and hydrated. Usually any retinol leaves me a bit peely and dried out. I'm thrilled that this is gentle. There is no need to moisturize after because your skin feels so plump and silky from the oil.
