ABOUT THIS BRAND
Ayuna was founded by Isabel Ramos and Begoña Sanjuan, two seasoned beauty professionals with a vision for innovation. Begoña is a master esthetician, passionate beauty industry professional and expert in product development, Spa and Wellness therapies and aesthetic treatments. Dr. Isabel Ramos has a PhD in chemistry and is an expert in Green Technology and the development of natural cosmetics with a unique understanding the science of the skin, biochemical and biophysical mechanisms and the art of product textures.
Through Ayuna's essential skincare products, Begoña and Isabel introduce a whole new dimension to how to treat the skin based on topical fasting and well-aging. Topical fasting has the same basis as general fasting; eliminate overstimulation, limit intake and provide a balanced diet to allow for self-repair and self-regeneration mechanisms to be immediately activated. Well-aging applies the principles of epigenetics and the brain-skin connection to refocus our view of skin aging. Research shows that our thoughts, lifestyle and environment can alter our DNA. Ayuna skincare embraces this research, with a slow and intentional approach to aging that gives us the space to connect with beauty in a positive way and adapt the teachings of mindfulness to the realm of beauty. Begoña and Isabel’s experience in skincare, combined with their extensive understanding of the sophisticated beauty client, active ingredients and application methodology led them to a natural evolution in the field of skincare. From this alliance of knowledge and experience Ayuna, Less Is Beauty was born – an evolutionary scientific-botanical approach to cosmetics that favors simple beauty and a commitment to pure, effective and clean cosmetics.
Instantly absorbed, instantly moisturised!
I got this in the Ayuna branded box, I am kind of sad that this is so pricey because it is a beautiful product. However, the performance of this product is incredible. This product glides on, absorbs instantly and provides the supplest hydration and moisturization. It is lightweight yet so nourishing and does not leave any sort of residue so it is the perfect moisturizer to wear under makeup. I also am a massive fan of the light and natural scent which I would describe as a little nutty with the slightest citric.
This cream is Pretentious.
Four stars more for the price tag than the performance. Yes, it is very smooth, moisturizing, nice scent. But, I know two other "clean and green" face creams that are just as smooth, just as moisturizing (or more so), have a better scent, and cost less than one-quarter as much. I have enjoyed trying it, but I would not buy it.
The Beautifulness aroma realty ties this final step of the AYUNA ritual together. I love how it's light texture absorbs quickly and leaves no residual traces of heaviness. I have noticed personally that even though I feel it should leave a film of some sort to "hydrate," my skin is just as hydrated as when I use any other cream/ moisturizer, if not more. A perfect makeup primer, because your creams and foundations don't fight this base cream for a spot on your face; the hydration penetrates the base layer of your skin instead of sitting on top of your skin waiting to be absorbed .
Lasting hydration, soft skin
I use this twice a day. It sinks into the skin and leaves it feeling perfectly soft and hydrated all day. This has made many of my serums and face oils redundant. Most of the time, this is all I need. That is saying a lot considering all the products I have tried in the last year to reach the point where my skin feels soft and hydrated and plump, instead of dry, tight, itchy, flaky, irritated, etc. The rich, spa-type scent is a bonus.
I‚Äôve been wanting to try Ayuna products, but the price point with my already extensive amount of products has held me back (I missed the Ayuna boxes). This cream was truly a revelation for me!!! I have combo (oily in summer) sensitive skin that is prone to acne, so I avoid ‚Äúrich creams‚Äù. I read ingredients diligently and decided to go for it...I could not resist. This is the WOW part...i used a spatula and took out tiny bit and as soon as I touched it, it was like silk. I gently massaged onto face and then patted it in and I swear, my skin made a sound of relief! I use A LOT of amazing products, especially ‚Äúcalming‚Äù ones , but this was next level. It is definitely not too rich for my skin and it absorbed immediately! I even put a second tiny (trying not to run through it so fast) amount on and my skin drank it up too!! I loved this (and whole box) so much that I ordered a second and the Ayuna past box. This is my new addiction! Cannot recommend highly enough!!! I think this would work for any skin type. Thank you so much BH!!!!!
