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.

how it works

AGE Smart works by impacting the main biochemical reactions that manifest the signs of skin ageing: the formation of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS, also known as free radicals), the generation of Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs) and the development of Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs).

I love it!

It works well on my sensitive skin as well as discolorations and fine lines and wrinkles. This is a much better product than the other high ends like philosophy. My skin looks transformed in a matter of one to two days.

Would recommend over and over again!

By far my favourite Dermalogica product I have ever used. I could never seem to stop my skin from looking dull and lifeless until I discovered this! It gives you such a nice glow, without making your skin look or feel greasy, it's not too heavy and not too light on the skin, just perfect. I honestly don't know what I did before I discovered this little beauty! Love love love

A new favourite!

I was recommended this product by my skin therapist after my first Dermalogica facial. I have definitely noticed darker scars from 8 years of suffering from acne fading, and it's honestly empowering finding something that genuinely works. I have also noticed that some fine lines on my forehead are certainly not as prominent as they were! This review will probably move up to 5*s with extended use of this product, but I am looking forward to my skin improving with it!

Wow!!

I finally bought this product. I was hesitant because I have rosacea so I was afraid it would irritate my skin. I use it only at night so I don't over do it. It doesn't seem to irritate my skin and I wish I had bought it sooner. All I can say is wow! If you want a product that will do what it says, buy this one. I could see a difference the second day I used it! It does feel a little tacky so using it a night is a good way to start his product and to see how your skin will react to it.

I would buy again

This serum is just great, it's rich but not greasy and each time I applied it I immediately notice my skin looking better. smells great too, ideal for winter I would say. It's one of the serums that gave better results for me so far

I woke up like this

This is 100% an over zealous review, but I immediately notice a difference in my skin with this product! If I use it at night time, I look up looking like I actually got my 8 hours of sleep! It's helped with my hyperpigmentation from some breakouts. I can't imagine my life without this product. I read a lot of reviews saying it made them break out - I have very acne prone skin and this was not an issue! So glad to have a staple in my skin care routine!

I usually love dermalogica products, but this product, bioluminescence-c serum was a total waste of money - no change what so ever.

I recently purchased this to help lighten up some acne scarring on my face. It took a bit for me to get over the price, but I've had it for a few days and I can already see such a difference in my skin. My skin feels smoother, firmer, more vibrant. It's for sure going to be a staple in my routine!

Makes me break out

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.

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

Bernadette

Can I use biolumin-c serum after multivitamin thermafoliant?

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

Hi I currently own multiple serums from dermalogica and wondered which cld be used in conjunction with each other. The newest is the Bio lumin c serum. I also have the multi vitamin power serum. Can I layer these together? And can I use the skin hydrating booster or ultra calming oil with bio lumin c? I'm not sure which order wld be the best to apply the different products. Thanks

Is this safe to use while pregnant?

Kim

Bernadette

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

Bernadette

Hi I am using c-12 serum at the moment but want to try biolumin c serum. Which one is better for me. O am 60 years old. Thanks

Waterlilly

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
