A post-wedding glow in a bottle.
Luna de Miel is inspired by the Spanish word for “honeymoon”. Non-exclusive to brides, this satiny serum beautifies any surface it touches. The flesh becomes brighter, softer and that reference of which poets talk about in their ballads. (We’re not f*cking with you).
This beautiful formula may not have any moondust in it, but it uses ingredients from earth that are just as magical for your skin. We have worn Luna to many places, and there has always been someone or something (AKA: our cameras) that have complimented our skin’s glow.
Its consistency is that between a serum and a light (liiiight) moisturizer. It has that otherworldly pinkish hue with very subtle flashes of sparkle that are practically invisible to the naked eye.
But then you move.
And the light catches it.
And whoever is looking at you; picks up on it, and they glow too.
The Process (directly from Ale):
“It took two years for this serum to come to life (patience is a virtue). But the wait was worth it. I am proud of it, and that’s a must for anything Florés!
The direct inspiration came from the women in my life who radiated that positive energy and glowed from the inside out. I sat on the formula to raise it to where it deserved to go, and my journey began. Music was extremely helpful in formulating it: it amplified senses and guided my instincts. I wanted the scent to be soft, romantic but also practical. It needed to go with the texture, the feeling, the design. Jasmine smells divine on a warm summer night, and I wanted to capture that with the black bottle.
I made some sample bottles of it, and Luna travelled the world, ready to captivate and give light to those loved ones who ended up having an affair with the product (the marriage kind, if you will).
Then I teamed up with my graphic designer, who understood right away the nature of this “being” and created the shiny moon-like foil that characterizes the glow of Luna; thus, the label embodied everything it represents.
Essential oils Rose Otto, Jasmine, Carrot and Ginger blend together to create a woodsy, fresh and gentle essence to revive your senses and feed your soul as much as your skin. Powerful antioxidants and ceramides that promote skin health, reduce imperfections and smoothen texture.
Who can use it? Everyone is welcome to use it!
For an all-over glow, add a couple of pumps to your foundation prior to application. It will help the foundation go on smoother and hydrate your skin at the same time; in case of a rush.
For a more subtle glow, apply on cheeks and nose, or anywhere you’d like to give light to, i.e. your shoulders, neckline, your lover’s attitude are all good contenders.
Goes well with smooth jazz and candlelit dinners.
