When I was thinking about what to write for Valentine’s Day, it wasn’t the couple-y, hearts and flowers relationship stuff I wanted to focus on – even though that’s lovely and I hope you’re getting plenty of loving today and everyday! I wanted to think about loving ourselves because I think my post about my second honeymoon (read it again, here) was as much lovey doveyness I could muster up for one month. So, when this fabulous little offer dropped into my inbox, I wanted to share it with you and share the joy of giving yourself a daily skin treat because  Lumity Facial Oil is one of my favourite products ever!

I mentioned how Lumity Facial Oil was a major player in my skin support armoury when I was in South Africa on Instagram – and  you can read about my holiday favourites by clicking here Of course, if you want to follow me on instagram too, I would be delighted…listen, share the love, it’s Valentine’s Day, after all! 😉

As you can see from the pic below, my facial oil is almost empty as it’s so well loved. It’s actually my second bottle- my first was gifted by the lovely glow-getters at Lumity but this one was purchased by me, as is my monthly prescription to Lumity Life Daily Supplements which I’ve been using and loving for years now. In fact I’ve got so many friends hooked on these health and mood boosting supplements that I’m feeling a bit like a dealer! Just the other day on my dog walk, a friend (nearing her fabulous fifties) stopped me to tell me that she was so pleased she’d purchased the supplements as she’s sleeping better and is much less moody. Ha! I love it when a plan comes together – just spreading the feel-good love makes me happy! 🙂

Back to the facial oil – it’s packed full of antioxidant rich plant oils such as Marula Oil which contains vitamins C and E, speeds healing and improves strength, suppleness and firmness. And I think Kukui Seed Oil is worth a mention too, as it’s a Hawaiian beauty secret prized for its skin-soothing properties which helps leave even the driest, troubled skin look radiant. But as well as these complexion wonder ingredients, I love it because it’s perfect for all skin types, smells delicious and feels super nourishing without being heavy. And I have to say, I use it everywhere! Neck, chest, hands and when I’m in a rush, after applying to the face, I often run the remnants through the ends of my hair to smooth down frizzies.

As I gazed in awe at a photo of Yasmin Le Bon in a recent newspaper article, two questions went through my head: 1. What must it feel like to be able to walk down the street and have people swoon at your supermodel beauty – when you’re over 50?! and 2. Where can I get my hands on those Lumity Life supplements she’s harking on about for giving her back her vitality and bloom since hitting the menopause? Unfortunately, I will never know the answer to question number 1. But – hoorah! – question number 2 was sorted…I found out where to get that Lumity Life stuff!

And?

Pull up a chair…I’ve got exciting findings to divulge ☺

I’m normally pretty rubbish at remembering to take any supplements but these little capsules came in such pretty packing (oh, I know! I’m such a soft touch) that I was quite happy to leave them out by the kitchen sink so that I remember to take them…well, I’m forever filling up the kettle for my copious amount of coffee green tea. But who needs green tea when you have antioxidant boosting ingredients like this?..

Lumity creator, research scientist and Cambridge University graduate, Sara Palmer Hussey, PhD, is the woman behind these little capsules of hope. She says:

“My aim was to create a product that offers real, tangible benefits. I thought if we could offer women something that noticeably improves the way they feel on a daily basis and gives them an effortlessly healthy, glowing appearance, they would have the energy and freedom to focus more on the things they love.”

And how was I feeling? Well, I’ve known for some time that my dizzy spells, raging PMT, forgetfulness, middle-age spread, lethargy (I could go on and on) must have something to do with my age. I’ve felt that my hormones have been wreaking havoc and making physical and emotional changes that I don’t like very much, so I was definitely more than ready to give these a go.

Obviously, Lumity is not designed specifically for women who are experiencing menopausal symptoms, they’re ideal for all of us busy women, but the specially blended cocktail of nature’s goodies, are certainly designed to address them.

I took the capsules religiously every day, twice a day for a month before I started feeling that something was happening. The first thing I noticed was lack of crabiness around my period! The time of the month came and went with hardly a flicker of the highly charged emotions I’d began to experience over the last year or so. I was impressed and put it down to ‘beginners luck’ but again, the second month and the third and onto my fourth – a much calmer, more balanced and even tempered me has re-emerged. And I like it. And my poor suffering family LOVE it! 😉

My sleep has improved, in that I fall asleep quicker and if I wake up in the early hours, I can thankfully go straight back to a deep slumber without annoying Stressed Husband by huffing and puffing until the alarm goes off! But although I’m sleeping better, I am sadly no more inclined to jump out of bed with renewed energy – the snooze button is still getting more action than it should do. Well, Lumity gets some great feedback but it has never claimed to dish out miracles!

The biggest change in my appearance is my hair. In fact, on my the last visit to the salon, my hairdresser asked me what I had been doing to it as it had got so much thicker! I’d thought so myself but when she mentioned it without me even telling her that I’d been taking Lumity, I knew it wasn’t just a figment of my imagination. Before taking Lumity, I had been a bit downhearted about my hair getting thinner and had put it down to ageing and a fact of life, but it has really improved and so I’m delighted.

Overall, I am impressed. There’s no doubt I’ve seen and felt some positive changes that can’t possibly be just a placebo effect and I’m quite happy to fork out for a monthly supply of these as, when you think about it, at £79 a month (which is the automatically replenish price) it’s not much more than I spend on buying a large coffee each day. And it’s a small price to pay for getting rid of that monthly monster that had tendencies to terrorise the family!

Apart from loving the supplement, I’m regularly checking out Lumity’s website – it’s full of interesting features and science backed ways to make you look and feel fantastic. You can find out more about Lumity here.

 

I’ve got a couple of friends who are excitedly on their first month of taking Lumity, I hope it works as well for them. Let me know if you decided to try it and how you get on.

Well, the party is finally over for 2017 and it’s time to get into the groove of 2018 – a fresh, new and shiny year! I’ve never been one for setting New Year resolutions as I feel they put too much pressure on yourself to be unrealistically perfect and then make you feel crappy when you (invariably) break them. And all that dry January malarkey – why on earth would anybody do that to themselves in the coldest, gloomiest, most depressing month of the year? Surely a tipple or two is medicinal for us SAD sufferers – in moderation, of course. However, I do like to have a sort of fluid – very fluid – plan of action at the beginning of the year to ease me along the path to health and happiness. Here are my Top 3 Health Goals for 2018…
