as a person with sensitive skin thats prone to breakouts, you have to very brave when trying products. so after finding this cheap at tj maxx and well-reviewed here, i purchased it. i actually think i like it more than my philosophy hope in a jar for sensitive skin. i am really thinkiing about buying a second bottle if they have it-i would highly recommend!
So I bought this yesterday at marshalls, it was 9.99 and I was intrigued by the fact that it was pink on the bottom and yellow on the top. I was also looking for a new serum for my face so figured why not try this out. I LOVE it so far. Makes my skin nice and glowy, I have oily skin so I only put it on at night but the next morning when I buff my mineral foundation into my skin it melts in like butter and looks flawless. I would buy this again if cvs has another lumene sale, because otherwise its almost 20 bucks which I feel is alot for a serum especially since Im only 22 and dont need special products yet. Will edit if anything funky happens in a week or so.
I've been using this product for the last two weeks and I am very happy with it. I really wanted to add antioxidants to my skincare routine and to also counteract my drying alpha hydroxy and retinol treatments. I use this every night under either the AHA or retinol and I wake up with clear, glowing skin. I have combo/oily skin and this has not broken me out at all and I think is contributing to keeping my skin clear and more even toned.
I REALLY like this product! My skin: sensitive, rosacea prone and lately VERY dry. My skin has been so flaky and dry lately and I know it's because I abuse the HE*@ out of it. I used to use a lot of harsh products (for acne) and my derm told me to stop. I'm so used to having oily and acne prone skin but I've had to take a step back and realize that I'm middle age now and my skin needs to be pampered. So...I tried these "pampering" drops and it's just what the DR. ordered. I don't SEE a lot of change as far as toning down the pink so much, but I really feel a big difference. No more dry flaky tight irritated skin. I used this AM and PM for about a week, but then switched to just PM since this can be slightly oily during the day. I've swapped for another bottle since I believe this has been discontinued and can't find it at any stores. :(
There is a new product that looks similar but not sure if it is yet. As long as I can get my hands on the old one, I will. HG product for me. I use it every night.
I bought this on clearance at Target. It has been great for my skin, it really has smoothed and brightened it. I usually wear it unser a moisturizer with sunscreen during the day, and sometimes at night under a night cream. It does better at smoothing and brightening the undereye area than an eye cream. It has not clogged my pores at all.
Lumene has apparently renamed, repackaged and reformulated this in their Vitamin C+ line. Hope the new product is as good. I wonder if the improvement in my skin can be attributed to the vitamin C in the plant oils in this such as the cloudberries? I will be comparing it to a straight vitamin C serum.
Another winner from Lumene. This really does give a glowy appearance to my skin. You must shake it vigorously before use to mix the yellow and red liquids. A very small amount will cover the face. It works well under moisturizers and seems to be made of ingredients that are healthy for the skin. I like that Lumene does not test on animals.
i'm very undecided on this product....i love the way it looks and feels on my skin, but i think it may be breaking me out. My skin's been kind of problematic the past few weeks and i can't figure out what to blame. When I stop using the Lumene drops for a few nights (i only apply at night, under moisturizer) and slather my face in BP instead, my skin clears up... i'll keep away from them a few more nights so my skin can get really clear, then try them again and see what happens. will update when I do. also, i'm not quite sure the purpose of this product...other than making skin look dewy and glowy, does it HELP your skin at all? any input would be appreciated!
I bought this on clearance at CVS because they are changing the packaging, so it was 75% off. I remembered reading good reviews on this site, so I decided to give it a try. I've been using it for about a week, morning and night, and I really love it. "Dewey" is a good description of how my skin looks. Not greasy...just glowy. My moisturizer glides on much more smoothly when I use this. One negative: It is hard to control how much comes out of the bottle, though. If you want less than one full pump, you have to be very careful. I sometimes think one full pump is a little too much (but might be a great amount in the winter, when my skin is really dry). My eyeliner seems to smudge more when I use this (giving me raccoon eyes), so I have to make sure I use more powder on that area. Will I repurchase when it's full price again ($19)? We'll see...
Hmmmmmmm-hate to be a par-tay poop-ier but yuck. I was soo excited to try this after reading the reviews. I have very acne prone sensitive skin that gets dry so its hard to find a moisterizer/serum I can use with any success. I am always looking for things that will help to brighten my complexion and give me a glow without being greasy and thought this may be it but..nope. Absorbed pretty well but left me greasy no matter what I did and it started to break me out-little whiteheads. *sigh* The search continues.
Based on the rave reviews, I went to Target to see if they still had this. It was hidden way back on the shelf and it was on clearance! I jumped for joy.
I started using this b/c my face has been so dry due to the climate. Plus, I've been breaking out like crazy (still trying to figure out which product was causing the breakouts - may be hormonal).
Anyway, I've been using this day AND night and my skin looks really good! My husband noticed right away. I'm using this in combination with the Monistat chafing gel (as a primer - will review that soon) and my skin looks GREAT!
The flakies are under control and other than the breakout areas, my skin looks really nice.
UPDATE - I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! Now that my breakouts are under control, my skin looks AWESOME. It helps give it a glow. The only thing that I don't like is that you have to be careful not to let it run through your fingers. And it spills out of the bottle very easy. But I don't care...it's works and it's cheap.
