REVIEW ::: Aria Nighttime Cell Recovery Treatment by La Bella Figura May 28, 2016 10:54
Packaging: Aria is encased in snow-white glass that has crisp silver lettering and a silver cap. The bottle has a pump dispenser so that the precious drops are never spilled or wasted.
Texture: Aria is a fairly light to medium viscosity oil; because it is added to your facial oil or moisturizer du jour, it will not feel weighty on the skin, and is very breathable, overall. I love that this treatment sinks in very quickly, which is especially important to me, as I have rather oily skin.
Scent: Wow! Where to even begin? To me, Aria smells fresh, clean, faintly floral, with traces of herb. It is an intoxicating smell and I pay special attention to inhale deeply each time I apply this wonderful treatment.
Efficacy & Overall Thoughts: Though I am only turning 31 next month, I believe that prevention is the best policy when dealing with fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to using a sunscreen daily, I have added Aria into my skincare arsenal to help address and prevent premature signs of aging, as I want to make my own aging process as graceful as I can, while recognizing that this process is actually a privilege that many are denied. Though I do not have many noticeable fine lines (yet!) I wanted to invest in Aria to keep these at bay for as long as possible. So far, the most significant difference that I have noticed while using Aria is that my skin seems much more vibrant than it previously did. I struggle with congestion and adult acne, and Aria seems to sooth any inflammation that I may be experiencing. This oil is one of the most effective treatments I have tried, and it is truly a game changing product for your skin.
Description: Aria is a sophisticated and elegant nighttime skin regenerative elixir which transforms lackluster skin while you sleep. Our potent blend of exquisite phytonutrients and phospholpids from truly raw, unrefined plant material forms bio-layers that protect and revitalize dying cells speeding turnover and recovery for an energized and youthful complexion. Aging skin is more vulnerable to skin injury due to the loss of subcutaneous fat in the connective issue and can appear thin and fragile. Aria provides nutritional support to this skin type accelerating cell renewal from unique healing compounds found in saffron, helichrysum and arnica flower oils. Vital antioxidants and prooxidants (coenzyme Q10, ellagic acid, Vitamins C, E and K) in the purest form are bioactive in this complex formula boosting support from inside the cell encouraging new, healthy growth. Three opulent drops massaged into skin is all you need to recharge the complexion for glorious radiance.
Suggested use: After cleansing my face before going to bed, I enjoy using this in combination with either La Bella Figura’s Barbary Fig Renewal Serum, and/or their Crema Virtuosa. Using an anointing dish, I carefully add two to three drops of this potent treatment to my oil or moisturizer, then apply to my face and décolleté. After application, I mist with Jardin de Fleurs Skin Revitalizer and massage gently to ensure that Aria sinks in completely.
Size & Price: $175 for 1 ounce
Because Aria is so concentrated, and because one only needs to use two to three *drops* per use, rather than pumps, this is really quite a reasonably priced product, which is something that I factored into my decision to purchase, as I am a graduate student living on a very fixed (and meager!) income. Overall, please do not hesitate trying this oil, especially if this hesitation is based on price.
