In Fiore has held a special place in my naturals-lovin’ heart since before I started Scent Hive. Dayala Body Balm and Jasmin Supérieur Bath and Body Oil had me the instant I smelled their jasmine potencies and wowed me with their superb hydrating abilities. Dayala especially because In Fiore’s Body Balms are super thick, but warm into your skin leaving it supple and in Dayala’s case, smelling like rich lemongrass infused jasmine.
As much as I love In Fiore’s body products, I might love Lustra Cleansing Balm Concentré just a tad more. Julie Elliot, creator of In Fiore, was not messing around when she concocted Lustra and she’s serious about the “Balm” in its name. Lustra looks like a thick oil based mud, and at first you might wonder why you decided to bring it home. But don’t hesitate to slather it on your face because the thick brown balm smells heavenly and leaves it softer than any mask or skin treatment I have used thus far.
Because Lustra contains ground oats and almond meal, it is quite granular. Therefore, I massage it very gently into my skin and prefer to leave it on for at least 10 minutes, ideally while bathing. If I’m heading directly for bed, I rinse off Lustra just enough to remove the granules but not too much so the luxurious balm can revitalize and hydrate overnight.
Lustra’s healing balm is made only of organic, biodynamic or wildcrafted ingredients including grapeseed oil, jojoba seed oil and beeswax. Rosebuds and the essential oil of geranium sur fleur rose (rose geranium distilled simultaneously with fresh petals of Damascus rose) impart a vibrantly rosy-rose geranium aroma upon Lustra which adds an unparalleled olfactory dimension to this facial treatment.
Lustra is available at Beautyhabit.com and InFiore.net $125 for 8oz. When I visited In Fiore last fall, samples were available. Please call their boutique for more information. 415-928-5661
Additionally, heed this warning. You don’t want your precious Lustra to spoil!

Oh, how I love a natural skincare treatment and the more luxurious the better!
Alyssa, it doesn’t get any more luxurious than this! 🙂
I LOVE Lustra. It is the best cleansing mask ever. No breakouts, my skin is lusterously smooth and soft after using it. The smell is amazing. Even works well with my mild rosacea. The jar lasts for quite a while, I have been using it 1-2 times a week since August and I still have about 1/3 of the jar left.
Angie, good to know that Lustra has been working well with rosaea. I love it and even though it’s pricey, as you said it lasts for a long time since not much is needed for such a therapeutic benefit!
Thanks so much for adding your thoughts, 🙂
