A vitamin c that works

5

I was very skeptical of this product initially because of all the "hype" of vitamin c products. I should have known Dermalogica would do it differently. After receiving a sample, I purchased and have been so pleased with the results. The lines around my mouth are less, the scar between my brows is less noticeable, my face has a brighter glow , and a friend accused me of having sculptural injections and not telling her! Nope. It is my Dermalogica skin care routine which includes the vitamin c. My friend the said to me with exasperation, "Well, who wants to look young forever anyway?" Who? Me.

Skeptical no more!

Okay, I have to admit, I was skeptical at first. I tried BioLumin-C to see it if it would help correct the dark spots I have on my face. They are actually sunspots. I have tried many different products from over the counter to dermatologist recommendations but nothing has ever really worked, until now. I"m actually shocked how well this works because I really didn't have high expectations, as a matter of fact I only used BioLumin-C once a day not the recommended times and it has visibly reduced the huge discoloration on my left cheek under my eye, I just about cried, it's been a month since I've been using this and I honestly didn't think I would ever get rid of that looming spot without some sort of procedure so to see it lighten with just a serum, I am literally sold. I would highly recommend you try this product, and stick with it and do it the right way, I'm not using the whole line, only the BioLumin-C, but I have started using it 2 times per day as instructed just because if using it once per day produced results I can only imagine how using it twice will work! It doesn't have a bad smell, it blends easily and has a dropper for easy application. I use about 3 drops, one the right side of my face, one on the left and one on my neck.

Great product, noticable

I would definitely say this product is different than most other products out there, it doesn't give that greasy feeling and you can see the noticable change. Pleasant smell, and a little will go a long way. I will definitely be looking to purchase more I honestly wasn't aware of BioLumin-C before and always purchased based on price of the product.

This didn't work for me. It irritated my skin and cause breakouts.

Now in my skincare routine-markedly improved skin

5

I had never heard of dermalogica or of the BioLumin-C serum before, but had tried other serums in the past. This one by far is of greater quality and does seem to give more bang for the buck given the size and how a little goes a long way. I just apply a few drops on the face after using toner and it is just so smooth. The subtle citrus smell is really pleasing, too. It feels almost sticky just after putting on, but that disappears within minutes, and can then be layered with moisturizer or primer. Within a week of first use, I was feeling a big difference in my appearance (smoother, even tone and softer skin), and someone even told me that my skin was flawless. I hadn't received a compliment quite like that about my skin in years, so I attributed it to my skincare routine addition! This is a lovely product that makes me feel like I'm taking care of myself and want to continue using and benefiting from!

Instantly soothing

I have used an arrange of products to clear up my hyperpigmentation along with fine lines and within two weeks of consistent use, I have seen a drastic change all over. My skin has a glow every morning and have been getting compliments from people around me. A little goes a long way, so don't feel like you need to used a big amount. Also, there is no strong awful smell, but it does have a semi odd smell, but it goes away immediately. 10/10 would recommend.

Really great product. This is my first time using Vitamin C Serum, but I can already see changes in my skin and pigment. Smells great, and a little bit goes a long way. I would definitely recommend.

I'm very skeptical about most reviews in case they are incentive based or whatever. However for me, I was pretty clueless about skincare until I treated myself to a spa visit, whereupon the clinician there raved about this product and then invited me to guess her age- she was about 15 years older than I perceived and she chalked it down to using this product alone. And so I bought a bottle and didn't notice a huge difference myself until a few weeks in where suddenly everyone started commenting on my skin and how clear and in good condition it was. A full stopper of this product is waaaay too much to use though. I use about half that a few times a week. The smell is lovely, and your skin drinks it in. Put your moisturizer on top and you're good to go. It's a really luxurious treat and I've made the one bottle last for about 8 months now so I definitely think it is good value.

I wish I had this product a little more then 5 days to try and give it a better review. I can tell you that I like the product because it is not greasy or greasy looking in the mirror. I hope that by continuing use I can see the results I so long for.

Hi,I'm not sure why my skin feels dry after using Biolumi C,can I add overnight repair serum or Phytoreplenish oil on top of it?

Min

It could be because the serum contained lactic acid which is an active ingredient to help accelerate cell turn over which slows down as we age. I would recommend using a heavy duty moisturiser daily after application like intensive moisture balance or super rich repair.

Louiseee

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can apply Super Rich Repair on top of it at night. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

What is your best product to fade age/sun spots?

Jane

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can exfoliate with one of our brightening microfoliants and use the Power Bright TRX Kit. You may also like Multivitamin Power Recovery Mask. Skin Resurfacing Cleanser is brightening too. Finally, Bio Lumin C can be used to brighten. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Why is the 1oz biolumin-c serum product in different packaging? Did the product change? The old and new packaging both say 1oz, but the new bottle is much smaller.

Carmen

Bernadette

I am using the dynamic skin recovery and antioxidant hydramist, at which point would I use this serum? Hyrdamist, serum, skin recovery?

Sherry

Bernadette

Do I have to wait, as with other Vit C serums, for Biolumin to sink into the skin before using a moisturiser?

FancyPants

Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It sets in rather quickly and you can apply moisturizer on top. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Can I use biolumin-c serum after multivitamin thermafoliant?

Rachael

Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, if your skin can tolerate it. You can always do a patch test to be sure. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

I just started using the Overnight Clearing Gel. Should I apply the gel before or after the BioLumine-C Serum? Or should these 2 products not be used at the same time? Thanks!

MJ

Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use them on alternate nights, or in different areas. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Is it ok to use the vitamin c serum on sensitive skin.

Gibbos

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, this vitamin C serum is safe but you can always do a patch test to be sure. Kind Regards, Bernadette
