LUSTER [Facial Cleanser]
Our LUSTER gentle facial cleanser is highly concentrated, and pH balanced to address all skin conditions. Aloe Vera and vitamin E oils contribute to its anti-inflammatory and healing qualities, while coconut oil helps to retain moisture and soothe irritated skin without stripping it. LUSTER is formulated to address the signs of aging by increasing cell energy, boosting skin cell repair, stimulating collagen synthesis, and adding moisture back into the skin, naturally. Lactic Acid gently exfoliates the skin, aids in cell renewal, and improves collagen and elastin synthesis. The blend of essential oils used in LUSTER, have been used to prevent collagen degeneration and to soothe damaged skin tissue, promote tissue regeneration and to speed wound healing, as well as to help balance the sebum, cleanse, and improve blood flow.

We recommend washing your face both morning and night. If you’re only able to wash once a day, do it at night to make sure you’re removing any environmental toxins and dead skin cells accumulated throughout the day.
To wash your face, begin by getting it wet with warm water. Add a quarter pump of LUSTER to your palm and gently work it between your hands before applying it to your face. Make round, circular movements with your fingertips, making sure you get down onto your neck and décolleté. The goal with our skincare regimen is to increase circulation through massage. This encourages lymphatic drainage and helps the product to tonify and penetrate deeper into the skin.
I feel it’s best to use a cream cleanser, which will penetrate deeper. The fat molecules in straight oil are too large to penetrate into the skin, but they do form a protective layer. However, if you have highly oily skin with active oil production, this oil cleansing protocol will help to balance the production overload. First add a few drops of NECTAR combined with a spray or two of HYDRATE with you LUSTER, in the palm of your hand and warm between your palms to combine. Apply to the face, massaging in round, circular movements with your fingertips, making sure you get down onto your neck and décolleté to encourage lymphatic drainage, and penetrate deeper into the skin.
I like to use a Natural Sea Sponge to rinse my face. It helps keep me from splashing water everywhere while rinsing, and aids in removing any additional skin cell build-up. If you take good care of them, they last for a long time. Rinse out your sponge thoroughly, and store in a dry place after use.

LUSTER [Facial Cleanser]
This is the best cleanser I’ve ever used! Normally my face feels stripped of moisture after I wash it, but it’s not the case with this one at all. I love using it in combination with radiance for a little exfoliation. I’m 4 months postpartum with baby #2 and I bought this cleanser hoping that I could combat the dullness that comes as pregnancy hormones leave the body, and it has done that and more. My skin has never looked and felt better!
Great cleansing lotion. I have been using it for two years now and my face had never looked better- dewy, even toned, tight pores. I will never use anything else. Also smells wonderful; goes on smoothly.
I have been using Luster for 7 days and my skin is very happy! I am so excited to have been reconnected with Kate and Essential Apothecary-I will be ordering more care products to round out my daily care routine. Love Love Love:)
Before I met Essential Apothecary and Kate, my skin was all over the place- sometimes okay, sometimes dry with oily spots, and often irritated. Kate urged me to give Luster a try and within one week I could feel and see that my skin was noticeably healthier and balanced. What I also love about it is that a very little goes a long way, which means no waste. I'm going on over a year now of using Luster as my daily face wash and my skin has never been happier and so am I! Kate's other products are amazing too - the moisturizer and the deodorant in particular are my favorites!
You need the tiniest amount which makes it a great value. Nourishes the skin while cleaning without drying or damaging. Smells divine. I’m on my third bottle and it is my favorite cleanser.
