Product has a sticky feel to it once it dries on my skin. When I wear it at night it kind of sticks to my pillow case. I'm not sure it's even penetrating; it may just be sitting on top. It does have a glowy effect though.

My new favourite!

I have been using this for about a month and a half now on a daily basis. My skin has improved noticeably; definitely brighter, more luminous, my fine lines seem to be less visible and overall it looks clearer and fresher. This serum is lightweight but still delivers moisture-I have combo skin and in summer can get oily so with this I don't really need a moisturizer except on dryer areas. I love this product line in general but this is one of the better new products I've tried. Cost is reasonable and it seems to last well. Definitely a solid product. Only thing is the bottle is opaque and quite heavy so hard to tell how much you have left; any chance the packaging could be less dense Dermalogica?

I've only used the product a handful of times so it's too soon to see tell if it makes a difference. I don't like that it's sticky. Overnight Repair serum and Featherweight don't have this issue. Not sure I'd be down to wear this during the day due to the stickiness. I'll update after I finish the bottle.

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 have pigmentation from scars caused when I had an accident, can I use the biolum c serum to fade out pigmented scar, or can you advice which is the best product to use

Aal

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It depends on how deep into the epidermis the scar is. A doctor can help and laser options may be best. Thanks.

Bernadette

Does biolumin c-serum help with redness? If not what product do you recommend?

Rebecca

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You may prefer Barrier Defense Booster from Ultra Calming. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Is this product safe for pregnant women?

XX

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes but please always check with your doctor. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

I started breaking out after using the product for two weeks. Is this a skin purge or a bad reaction to the product??

NL

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It is possible you are purging due to the Lactic Acid in the product. Try using it once at night, after double cleansing and before moisturizing. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Can you please tell me what is the difference between the Biolumin-C Serum and the C-12 Pure Bright Serum. Thank you.

Carla883

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. BioLumin-C Serum brightens the skin and fights aging with vitamin C and Lactic Acid. It helps with firmness and lines. C 12 Pure Bright Serum brightens the skin with peptides. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Hi there i have the BioLumin c serum can i use this at night under the pure night cream?

Prue

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, you can use BioLumin-C Serum as a serum step under Pure Night moisturizer. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Can the biolumin-c be used in conjunction with daily micro exfoliant? If so, how would you recommend usage? My current regiment is precleanse oil, essential cleansing solution, daily micro (at night), tone, phyto oil (morning and night), tone, and moisturize. Thank you!

Trish

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use BioLumin-C Serum at night in place of Phyto Replenish Oil. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

hi, can i use this product before using power bright pure light in the morning .. is it compatible.. and i also want to know if this product makes skin too oily? could you please also help me decide between this product and the MAP-15 regenerator..? i have uneven skin tone..

Dya

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. I recommend BioLumin-C Serum. It is hydrating but light weight. It is also very brightening with Lactic Acid and Vitamin C. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

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
