Our story so far.
Everything happens for a reason
LAST wasn’t born out of my disappointment with skincare products available on the market that pushed me into creating my own perfect cosmetic line. Nor was it the story where I wanted to quit working in a corporation and decided to launch a startup which happened to be a skincare business. Actually, it was more of a coincidence, a set of events put into motion that took me to my new destination.
One thing is for sure, all of that was unexpected.
Our flagship Skin Repair Serum was Inspired by my father in law. It was quite a story. In 2018 he was looking for the perfect cream for his wife, didn’t know what to choose or where to start. He asked his skincare savy longtime friend for advice, yet didn’t receive a name but a list of ingredients… Frankincense. Myrrh. Copaiba. This is where it started.
I remember saving money to buy the first precious ingredients, I remember nights spent online on pages like ResearchGate, PubMed or NCBI looking for more knowledge and complimentary raw materials, verifying their effectiveness, collecting documentation. I remember the time when, while reading the polish VOGUE, I came across a biotechnologist discussing skincare with ayurvedic, natural and clean approach that I also shared. I remember our first meeting and the warm, powerful, exhilarating feeling when she agreed to work together. I remember my best friend advising me to meet an artist she ran into on a design expo in Paris. I will never forget how many versions of the wooden cap we went through before reaching the perfect – in both design and meaning – shape and style. Shortly after that, my dream come true: Sonia Szóstak photoshooting our first campaign! I just couldn’t believe I am there, in the studio, and the shoot is actually happening. Then my high school best friend art directing the product session, another friend creating first newsletters and checking up every day if I was properly running my Instagram account… These were all women. Wonderful women, who all made it happen. I could never express my gratitude enough for what they have done and continue to do.
What we give you
After tens of iterations, with final composition of 30+ additional active ingredients, we launched our hero Skin Repair Serum. Adaptogenic, biomimetic, protective and aromatherapeutic, clinically proven to profoundly improve skin’s condition, carefully manufactured with valuable ingredients from different corners of the world. One serum to rule them all. With all the effort put into the creation of this formula, trying to avoid being bias, we conducted additional, external apparatus tests to objectively verify how powerful the Skin Repair Serum really is. The results were astonishing: …. % diminished wrinkles, …% increased elasticity, …% improved hydration, …% more even skin tone, ….% diminished erythema in just 6 weeks of usage.
In order to protect potent plant extracts, we closed the serum in the biophotonic bottle made of violet glass, shielding the contents against harmful effects of light. Each bottle is complemented with a unique, hand made, shou sugi ban wooden cap. Shou sugi ban (焼杉板) is the Japanese art of preserving wood by charring the surface with hot flames. We make it the traditional way by…….. It takes approx…… to create one cap.
Please, enjoy. LAST is made to last.
I must say the serum already became my favourite beauty routine. It makes taking care of my face so easy, with just one product my skin looks radiant, firmer and super hydrated (and considering how dehydrated it tends to get I feel I’v found a real gem). I love the transparency and honesty brand shows regarding the effect but I feel Skin Repair Serum offers even more than promised
I have been using the serum for some time and I am delighted. It spreads perfectly over the entire face, despite the fact that the amount used is not large (2 drops), and it smells really nice. The complexion becomes smoother, with less visible discoloration. I have the impression of comfort and pampering on my face. I would highly recommend.
I have normal skin and I love this, so luxurious and moisturizing. My face feels so soft in the morning when I use this at night. This serum is not greasy and does not clog my pores. Wish it was cheaper but I have repurchased and will continue to repurchase nonetheless.
After few weeks with LAST serum I must say it brings a lovely results for my skin! I love the smell, consistence and the fact I can really see the results after application. LAST is definately one of this brands that will make you feel special- beautiful design bottle, great and natural ingredients and really seeable results!
Very visible results, I can see the difference even after few days of using serum. I absolutely love it, cannot imagine my morning ritual without it. One of the best face products I have ever used.
LAST is very different to everything that I used before. It’s the scent, the color, the texture of it. When I apply it the skin reacts immediately. After a few moments you can feel softness under your fingers. I’m a face model and its very important for me, not to overwhelm my skin with too many products.
I love the way my skin looks and feels now, it’s much smoother, toned. My pigmentation spots are almost invisible, I see less wrinkles, the skin looks so fresh, calm and relaxed. I love the effect but also the whole application process – it smells so empowering, sometimes I just cannot wait till the evening to put it on my face again. My friends notice I look better, I get many compliments, it all feels really good.
This is remarkable – not only the product itself but the whole entourage it goes with it, the packaging, the wooden cap – it all feels very special. Thank you!
