As the Great Cessation approaches, help them chime their cares away! We’ve also scheduled mandatory daily affirmation sessions with your dedicated Astral-Crystal Rated (Level 26) Spirit-Lieutenant. Give yourself to them as they gave themselves to their upline – and give yourself to the LunaLife! 

You are LunaLife – for Life!  

We’re proud of your journey so far. We want you to keep growing and earning – all the way to the end! You’ve committed to delivering you time, your energy, and your nearest and dearest – and you’ve signed away your right to resign. Good for you! Your downline needs you to be a shining beacon of success, and you’ve sworn on pain of ceremonial de-ranking to double your sales progeny each cycle. Thus, we regenerate and multiply – but there isn’t long left, so don’t delay! Need help? We’re here for you – and we’re everywhere! You’ll find us in our high-end lifestyle products and you’ll find us online. We’re on the end of a phone and we’re there at our in-person workshops and sales events. Come with us and we’ll take you where you want to be! That means perfect products, lucrative affiliates, and maybe even Astral-Crystal status of your own. The sky is no limit, the stars are our destiny and the LunaLife family rises together! 

The LunaLife has Chosen You!   

Welcome to your Astral Crystal (Level 28) Spirit-Lieutenant End-Times-Ready Super Pack. The sun is shining, the favoured planets are moving into conjunction and the LunaLife family salutes you. We couldn’t do this without you! You’re on the way to awakening in your true form. The most faithful and tireless among your downline will be coming with you – and we’re almost ready! LunaLife is here for you and the time is now – let’s go!  

It’s Coming – For You!   

The Great Cessation is almost here and we’ve got a truly fabulous haul of final goodies to take you into our new life pampered, glowing and rich! In this pack, you’ll find: 

  • Pluto Cool Ambiently-Scented Plumping Oil – naturally-derived deionised lab run-off to boost circulation and minimise cellulite

  • A 52.85ml phial of your dedicated upliner’s blood – to show you they’re not afraid 

We’re also recommending that all our Level 25+ Battle Ready Stellar Sellers take some time to roll around in their money – really slather it on your skin – before packing for the arrival of the mothership. You won’t need clothes but you will need LunaLife shampoo, conditioner, scalp soak, detangling spray, curl enhancer, eyebrow tamer, exfoliant, shower scrub, bath foam, depilatory cream, eye serum, moisturiser, all-purpose lotion, highly specific lotion, toner, makeup remover, makeup, cuticle softener, foot scrub, bio-oil, deodorant, anti-wrinkle cream, some snacks and a bar of soap. LunaLife is here for you and we’re here for your downline. So let’s get ascension-ready together!  


It’s time! All those long hours of self-care, selling and veneration are about to pay off – big time! So grab your Super Pack, inhale some Winds of Neptune Scourging Mist and chant your upliner’s name. We’re aiming for the stars! Don’t forget, if you can sign-up any more souls at all before the mothership arrives then you too still might become a Dollar Rated (Level 42) Mothership Commander before the Great Cessation obliterates the drab, dark Earth from the skies. So drag them kicking and screaming as we head for the ends of the charted universe! The LunaLife awaits us all! Hail the Eternal Upliners who reap what we have sowed! Give yourself to us! You go, girl!
