Maria Galland Paris, professional skin care made in Switzerland.In the 1960’s, Maria Galland was a successful French dancer. She had a unique vision on skin care and started her own beauty salon in her house in Paris, with personal advice and a highly individualistic approach as her trademarks. It boomed right away, so with a dermatologist she founded a laboratory and developed a complete range of high quality skin care products and treatments. Nowadays Maria Galland features over 200 skin care products, used in spas worldwide.
The Lumin’Éclat range has been developed for women with an active, busy lifestyle, to preserve the skins’ youthful appearance. A facial treatment in the salon with the serum and the cream takes 60 minutes; it claims to boost the skin, to restore its balance and to promote a radiant look. I got to try out 360 Lumin’Éclat Silky Cream, an anti-age day and night care. Grape seed extract and vitamin E promote the cell regeneration and protect the skin against damage caused by free radicals. It has strong moisturizing properties thanks to hyaluronic acid, algae and aloe vera, which also calms the skin, while fig cactus extract hydrates and reinforces the skins’ barrier. The miracle workers for a youthful appearance are canola, which smooths and unifies the complexion, a complex of four flower blossoms, which relax stressed skin and bring radiance to it, while garden cress and soybean refine the skins’ texture and help to restore its balance.
The white 360 Lumin’Éclat Silky Cream is silky soft, hence the name, and its light texture sinks in quickly, leaving my skin soft, well-hydrated and thus slightly plumped. It has a fresh floral scent to it, which I would have prefer to be less present, but that is personal of course.
Perfect skin for summery days,
