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.

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!)

Creates Skin Envy

5

I was a bit dismayed when the MAP-15 Regenerator product was no longer offered. I'd used it successfully for over 10 years and felt that because of my skin's sensitivity, I wouldn't be able to use a serum. In this instance, I am very happy to be wrong. I've been using the biolumin-c serum for over two months now, twice a day. I add a few drops to my morning moisturizer (dynamic skin recovery) underneath the hydrablur primer and find it keeps my skin much more hydrated throughout the day. I use it again at bedtime, sometimes adding an extra drop to the skin around the eye and mouth areas, depending on how long my day was. I've had more than one person say they have skin envy with regards to my complexion. My face is clearer, brighter, more luminous and moisturized. Plus, it really holds moisture better now, so my skin remains unfaded into the evening. I'll be celebrating my 50th birthday in a month and am glad to be heading into the next decade with a product which supports my skin's changing needs. Thank you Dermalogica.

So many compliments on my skin after using this

5

I was given a sample of this product by my Dermalogica consultant and ended up buying a bottle - on my second bottle now! It made such a big difference to my skin. I use it day and night, underneath my moisturiser (Dermalogica intensive moisture balance at night and Dermalogica Sensitive Tint during the day). My skin is a lot brighter, fine lines are less noticeable. I've received a lot of compliments on my skin after I started using this product! When I apply it makes my skin tingle a little bit (I've got sensitive skin) but after 10 minutes that's gone and it looks amazing. It's expensive but worth the money!

Simply the Best

I'm on my second bottle of this now, can't survive without it! Leaves my skin looking healthy firm gorgeous! The service from Dermalogica is unsurpassable they say it will be delivered tomorrow and it is, simply the best.

Still undecided

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!

5

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?

Love this product so worth the money, and lasts ages. Makes my skin feel and look amazing, and make up looks great as well. I also love the smell. So pleased I invested in this following use of a trial product.

Jury's Still Out

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.

Just received my Biolumin-c serum. How much product should you use each application? I used an entire dropper full and it seemed to be too much product. It left my skin too shiny and tacky.

Tanya

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. For best results, mist Antioxidant Hydramist all over. Use one dropper of BioLumin C Serum on the face, neck and chest. Follow with a moisturizer. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Can you use Biolumin-C serum with skin resurfacing cleanser? If so, how often (1 or 2 times daily) and which moisturizer do you recommend with these two products?

Josie

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It is at your discretion depending on what your skin can tolerate. I advise a patch test to be sure. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Hello, I use multivitamin power serum + Dynamic skin recovery spf 50 at the morning and overnight repair serum + overnight retinol repair at night. I see some other products that maybe can be suitable for me but I am not sure whether I should try them or rather stick with the products that I use. More specifically: Should I try to replace overnight repair serum with BioLumin C-serum? What is the difference between them? Should I try to replace Dynamic skin recovery spf 50 with Super rich repair? What is the difference between them? Should I try to replace overnight retinol repair with overnight retinol repair 1%? What is the difference? I am 40 years old, my skin is rather good and not too dry. I have few light pigmentation stains on my face which would like to lighten. And of course I would like to smooth the skin and the fine lines. What is the best combination that you would recommend for morning and for night? Thanks!

Karin

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Try Bio Lumin C Serum and Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50 during the day. At night, use Overnight Repair Serum and Super Rich Repair. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

i have oily skin >> it is good for me to use ?

mariam

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, due to the Lactic Acid. It helps cell turn over, which can prevent clogs in the pores. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Hello, I'm a new Dermalogica user since a week ago. The specialist I went to see recommended, for my dehydrated skin, the Essential Cleanser, Mutiactive Toner, Hydrating Booster and then the Water Gel mixed with Intensive Moisture Balance. So my question is - where can I fit in this product? Should I take away the booster in place of this one?

Lynn

Hello, You can use Skin Hydrating Booster in the morning and Bio Lumin C Serum at night. Be sure to use SPF during the day. Thanks

Bernadette

Hello, I am currently suffering with hormonal/pregnancy acne, but my skin a quite dry and sensitive usually. I use the pre cleanse, special cleansing gel, calming toner, hydrating booster, and skin smoothing cream with a small drop of breakout control. I also use the charcoal mask. I wanted to add the Bio C to my regime, but I was unsure if I would be 'overloading my skin'. I'm particularly interested in it due to its properties that have a gentle exfoliating action, and to even out skin tone (I have slight acne scars in some places). Thank you!

Shan

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Bio Lumin C all over. You can use Breakout Control on breakouts only. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

I currently use cleansing gel, breakout clearing booster, and active moist am+pm. Blackhead fizz mask on alternate nights. How can I incorporate the bio lumin c into my regimen?

Filencia

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Bio Lumin C Serum as a serum step on nights when you do not mask. Be sure to use SPF every morning. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

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
