Better than Skinceuticals

Vitamin C can be a tricky ingredient to work with and it won't deliver if it's not formulated and packaged properly... So in order to fully reap benefits of Vitamin C, there are a couple of formulation must's to consider. Vitamin C MUST be stabilised in its packaging to remain active when you're incorporating it into your skincare routine. Vitamin C can lose its powerful purpose when its exposed to air, heat and water therefore needs to be made in such a way this is prevented. Next, *Bio-availability* matters, just like the ways in which you select your vitamin/supplement brands. This means it has the stamina/reach to make it fully intact down in the deeper layers of the skin where the Vitamin C is needed. This is where I believe Dermalogica did a better job, surprising myself to be saying this, than Skinceuticals Vitamin C Serum and outperformed. *KEY INGREDIENTS* ~Vitamin C Complex: A superior synergy of two forms of stabilised Vitamin C fused with collagen boosting Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 means brighter, firmer, more radiant skin. ~Lactid Acid: This Alpha Hydroxy Acid not only provides exfoliation, but in doing so, allows for the Vitamin C Complex to be more readily absorbed. ~Sophora Japonica Flower Extract: Powerful antioxidants that shield against the skin ageing damage caused by exposure to UV and pollution. ~Salvia Hispanica (Chia Seed) Oil: Hydrate and prevent free radical damage.

I was asked to review this product by heading to my local Ulta location. I put a few drops on the back of my hands and the product absorbed beautifully into the skin without feeling greasy. It did give a nice hydrated glow. Unfortunately I can't recommend unless I really test this out on my face for multiple days.

I've recently read a ton of articles saying it's best to use vitamin C during the day and Retinol products at night. I noticed in many hours of your answers u advise against this combination, why?

Kimberly

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It is generally not recommended to use exfoliants with retinol. It would be at your discretion depending on your skin's tolerance level. BioLumin-C Serum contains Lactic Acid, which is an exfoliant. One option is to use BioLumin-C Serum in the morning under SPF and Overnight Retinol Repair at night, if your skin can tolerate it. Otherwise, you can use Multivitamin Power Serum in the morning. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Hi. I have both the Bio-C serum and the C12 serum as part of my Pure bright range - can I use both the C-12 and the Bio-C serum ? If yes, in what order ?

SS

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use C 12 Pure Bright Serum during the day and Bio Lumin C at night. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Hi, I currently use the acne line from Dermalogica (the wash and acne clearing gel). I recently purchased the bioluminous-c serum but don't know how to incorporate it in my regime. Do I use it before or after the overnight acne clearing gel? And what toner works best with this product for sensitive acne prone skin? Thanks SS

SS

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use BioLumin-C Serum in the morning under SPF and use Overnight Clearing Gel at night. For toner, try Multi Active Toner. Multi Active Toner is a hydrating mist made for all skin types. It is your toner step. It refreshes with cucumber and lavender. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

I have mild rosacea. Is this safe for me to use?

LisaE

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Try a patch test in an inconspicuous area to be sure. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Can I use the biolumin- c serum along with Clearing skin wash, clearing mattifier, and oil free matte spf 30 from the medibac line? If so, do I apply it after the mattifier?

Jen

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It would be either BioLumin-C Serum or Clearing Mattifier. I do not recommended using both at the same time. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Can you use biolumin -C serum after using super microfoliant and before your Dynamic skin recovery cream?

Tunes

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, you can use it in that way. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Is it safe to use BioLumin-C serum with Daily Superfoliant?

Mira

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It would be at your discretion, depending on your skin's tolerance. You can try one in the morning and one at night. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Can I se this during the day and retinol at night?

Dermalogicafan

Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Overnight Retinol Repair with BioLumin-C Serum. However, it would be at your discretion, depending on your skin's tolerance. Try a patch test to be sure. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Hi could you tell me if I can use Biolumin-c serum with the Skin hydrating booster?

lisa

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. BIoLumin-C Serum has Chia Seed Oil, which is very hydrating and moisturizing. You can use BioLumin-C Serum at night and Skin Hydrating Booster in the morning. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Can you please tell me what is the percentage of vitamin c used in your new vitamin c product eg 10%?

Roseann

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. BioLumin-C Serum brightens, firms, resurfaces, and fights free radical damage. It prevents and corrects fine lines and wrinkles and it combats hyper pigmentation. Use it as a serum step after toner and before moisturizer. What's important is how much vitamin C is delivered to the skin. BioLumin C contains 4.7% of super-stable vitamin C, which has been scientifically proven to deliver three times the amount of vitamin C when versus leading competitor. Kind Regards, Bernadette
