Future Cosmetics is an authentic, indie beauty brand that was created 30 years ago by Anita Bar Lev, an expert in professional cosmetics, a nurse and a folk medicine specialist. Anita began her journey with the mission of discovering the most effective rituals to creating beautiful, balanced, and harmonized skin. Through her deep understanding and knowledge of skin conditions, Anita created the 5 Essential skincare program- a synergistic collection of products and rituals for those who are looking for effective and authentic products. The products are powerful yet gentle enough to rebalance the skin and solve almost any condition to bring skin to ultimate wellness.
FUTURE COSMETICS FAQ
Future Cosmetics is renowned for its innovative products specially formulated for the founder's novel and time-tested skincare regime. To get the most out of your Future Cosmetics products, take a moment to learn more about what makes them unique and how to select and apply them properly.
DO FUTURE 5 ELEMENTS CONTAIN ANY ANIMAL PRODUCTS?
Most of the Future Cosmetics product line is completely free of animal-derived products, with several exceptions:
- Cream Mega contains elastin and collagen (which are derived from milk protein and ocean-farming practices)
Cream Éclair is made with milk and yogurt
Lemuria Phytomarine also contains milk protein
The Collagen and Elastin Serum products contain ocean-farmed materials
Every Future Cosmetics product is, and always has been, animal testing-free. True to its folk-medicine origins, Future Cosmetics also employs small-batch production runs. This allows close human oversight to ensure only the freshest botanical formulas are used.
DOES FUTURE COSMETICS CONTAIN NUTS OR SOY?
Future Cosmetics products are nut free – but their Mask Heritage product contains ground herbs and spices that come from facilities that may also process nuts.
The Mask Heritage also contains soy proteins, as does the Cream Éclair moisturizer. All other Future Cosmetics products are soy free.
HOW DO I APPLY FUTURE COSMETICS PRODUCTS TO MY SKIN?
Future Cosmetics formulates their products to be modular, so they can be easily mixed and matched. This makes them very appropriate for almost any beauty routine. Their line of products includes a diverse range of:
- Makeup removers and cleansing milks simultaneously hydrate, moisturize, and cleanse the skin. To use, gently massage onto the skin with a dry or damp cotton pad, then wipe and rinse with lukewarm water.
Detoxifying cleansers are applied in the same way.
- Serums can be applied after cleaning the skin or directly when in very humid climates (which we have no shortage of at our Miami location). Future Cosmetics serums can be massaged into the skin with clean fingertips, and they are suitable for layering both on their own or with other products. Avoid eye contact, as the ingredients are highly concentrated.
Moisturizers are usually applied and left on in the morning and evening.
Exfoliators are to be gently massaged onto dry or damp skin using lukewarm water, then thoroughly rinsed.
Toners, applied with a cotton pad to the face, neck, and décolletage as desired.
- Facial masks are left on for a period of time to ensure the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants seep deep into the pores.
WHAT'S THE BEST FUTURE BEAUTY DROPS FACE SERUM FOR MY SKIN TYPE?
Each Future Cosmetics product provides a particular blend of their 5 Elements of skincare:
The proportion of these properties differentiates Future Cosmetics products from each other. Selecting the right face serum depends on which of these 5 Elements is most suitable for your skin type and beauty regimen.
For instance, after consulting with your aesthetician, they may recommend higher nourishment and hydration if you're focused on eliminating wrinkles or healing scars. Protection may be preferred if you consistently wear generous amounts of makeup. Stimulation could be most important if your goals are to create a natural, vibrant glow.
The weather also plays a role in which of the three Future Beauty Drops serums are most suitable for you:
- Serum no. 1 — Sensitive Skin
- Serum no. 2 — Dry Skin
- Serum no. 3 — Oily, Unbalanced, and Combination Skin
SELECTING THE RIGHT FUTURE COSMETICS PRODUCT FOR YOU
Even though Future Cosmetics products are blended with a focus on just five properties, you can see the possibilities are endless. That's why the most effective results will come from forging a relationship with a highly trained, trusted aesthetician. They can evaluate your skin's needs and help you establish the most appropriate care regimen and Future Cosmetics products to accentuate your own unique beauty.
