Really love this product

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.

The Best Vitamin-C Serum!

5

I absolutely love this serum! I was nervous at first that it would make my already oily skin even oilier, but it didn't! It goes absorbs quickly into the skin and a little goes a long way. My skin is brighter and I'm seeing fewer fine lines after only a few weeks of use. My skin hasn't been as dry, and actually hasn't been as oily either. I love that's so neutral. Definitely worth it!

Great Serum!

This has quickly become my 'go-to' serum. I'm a big fan of dermologica products, and I'm so glad I took a leap of faith to try the biolumin-c serum which was so gratuitously provided to me through the viewpoints program to test. After a few weeks of use, I noticed my skin had a noticeably brighter glow and the appearance of my wrinkles around my mouth and eyes had noticeably diminished leaving my skin firmer. Compared to other products I have tried, I think this is a superior serum that I will certainly purchase again and I would recommend it to my friends.

I can already see a difference!

Dermalogica BioLumin-C has really made a difference in making my face look brighter and firmer. I love that it's diminished the look of the fine lines in my face and plus it makes my skin feel so soft. It soaks right in quickly and there's no sticky feel but it just feels wonderful and it helps my moisturizer to absorb in so much quicker than before. I've used Vitamin C products like this before but they felt sticky and I never seem very good results with the others I've tried. I will purchase this and I would highly recommend it. I'm rating the product with the highest possible rating because in my honest opinion it deserves the best rating possible.

Does not disappoint!

I have been looking for a product that truly brightens and evens skin tone while reducing fine lines. I've only used this product for a little over a week now, so I haven't noticed a change in fine lines. However, the brighter/more even skin tone is definitely there! I love the dropper, as sometimes when you have to squeeze a product out of a tube, too much comes out and all that extra is wasted! So the dropper allowed you to use just the right amount. When first applying, my skin was a little sticky, but as soon as the serum dried my face was as smooth as butter. I have sensitive skin, so I did have a breakout after first using this serum. But after a few applications my skin got used to the product and there aren't anymore breakouts. Overall I would definitely recommend Biolumin-C. You just "feel" better after using a product like this. Treat yourself and give it a try.

I love how soft and subtle this made my skin. I noticed right away that it had a new radiance about it. I showed up at work and one of my coworkers even told me I looked different but in a good way.

Just okay...

I was aware of the Dermalogica BioLumin-C before participating in this program. I was really excited to try it because I've used many other Vitamin C skincare products before and I was eager to compare the results. After using this product for a week, my skin started to purge (which I suspect is due to the Lactic Acid, although Lactic Acid is already a normal part of my routine so perhaps it was just due to the increase of it?) I just want to say that this reaction IS normal when incorporating and/or increasing the amount of AHA's into your routine. After that first week, my skin calmed down and I started to notice subtle improvements in my complexion and fine lines around my eyes. What I do like about this product is the feel of it on my skin, the subtle scent, and the application dropper. And I also like that this doesn't cause irritation like some other Vit-C products can. Also love that it's vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, and formulated without artificial fragrances or colors. There's really nothing about this product that I dislike. Oh, I would definitely recommend wearing sunscreen when using this product as AHA's increase sensitivity to the sun! I would buy this in the future and I would recommend it!

Radiant skin

I really like this product. I use it both morning and night and have seen and felt my skin becoming more radiant and hydrated. I have sensitive skin and this does not cause any type of adverse reactions which is great! My complexion also feels more even now and is noticeably softer. When applying the serum it does feel a little tacky on your face but once it drys that feeling vanishes.
