biolumin-c serum

A high-performance Vitamin C serum that works with skin’s own defenses to brighten and firm. Advanced bio-technology fuses ultra-stable Vitamin C and Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, helping to dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Formulated with advanced technology to deliver more Vitamin C into skin. This superior formula outperforms other Vitamin C products (including those formulated at higher concentrations). Other key ingredients include Vitamin C Complex for brighter, firmer, more radiant skin, Lactic Acid to accelerate cell turnover, Sophora Japonica Flower Extract to help return skin to a calm state after experiencing oxidative stress, and Salvia Hispanica (Chia Seed) Oil to hydrate and help quench free radicals.
Although there is no standard for establishing a gluten-free designation for topical skin care products, independent laboratory testing confirms that this formula surpasses the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) ingestible standards and can therefore be considered gluten-free.

Makes me break out

2

I really want to like this so I keep trying it, but I continue to wake up with zits after I apply it the night before. It's oretty expensive so I'm disappointed. I've been using it on my neck and chest area because I don't want to throw it away. I should've read he reviews more closely. Ps I only use dermalogica products, I love most of their stuff.

Allergic reaction

1

I applied this right after I took a shower and at first everything was fine, after a while I felt a burning sensation on my skin and thought it could be normal, then my skin was warm to the touch and my face was swollen with a raised rash. I took benadryl and decided to weight it out at home, it's been like 7 hours and the rash is still there but it's milder.

Faded my bad acne scars

I've been a long time user of Dermalogica products and this product has been the one that changed my skin complexion completely. Since starting this my acne has reduced and the scarring has almost disappeared. I'll definitely be repurchasing.

First product to break me out in 10 years

1

I have very normal skin and apart from acne when i was 13/14 I haven't experienced any cystic acne since. I bought a number of Dermalogica products at once and love the super rich skin repair, pre cleanse amongst others but couldn't understand why I was getting so many pimples out of the blue. Ruled it down to the bio lumin c. Every now and then I try it out again and my skin flares up and I'm very disappointed that I spent so much money on it. It is very clear now in retrospect that the shop attendant was trying to sell me the 'newest and greatest' product just for sales.

Breaks me out

1

I have been using dermalogica products for years and this is the only product that break me out. First I thought the full dropper is too strong, so I started mixing couple drops with skin smoothing cream but I'm still breaking out. Now that I stopped use it for a month, my face is back to normal. I'm too scared to try it again.

Fountain of Youth

I have mature (age 41), dry skin. This product works while I sleep and I wake up with luscious, glowing, supple skin. The scent is light and natural. Love this and it's now a standard in my arsenal.

Made me break out

2

I wanted to love this so much. I waited for the release and bought it right away. At first when I broke out I thought it may be something else. I tried stopping other Dermalogica products but it continues. I tried taking a break from the biolumin C and my skin cleared up. I started using it again and broke out. I tried this several times before I had to admit that it was in fact this product. I am 42 with combo skin but rarely get cystic acne if any pimples at all, and I wanted to love this. I'm super bummed!

Not sure if it's worth it

This product smells amazing! I purchased the full bottle and used it twice a day morning and night. I don't think it was worth the money. As a die hard long term Dermalogica user I was thrilled when this product came out. It didn't wow me like I had hoped. It's also pretty pricy. The dropper concept is nice. I liked being able to drip the product directly onto my face. I just wish it had given me the results I had hoped for. It was a miss for me. I prefer the Multivitamin Power Serum Or the Phyto Replenish Oil. (Cheaper and gave me results!)

What is the form and concentration of vitamin c contained in the biolumin c serum? What is the concenration of lactic acid?

Kristen

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. 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

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You may like Bio Lumin C best since it also targets aging. 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. Kind Regards, Bernadette
