I really like this stuff. I have sensitive and acne-prone skin and all the other Vitamin C products I've tried 1) smell weird, 2) turn my skin orange, or 3) make me break out. This has done none of those things, and it has an awesome price, so I'm sold. I do hate dropper bottles and would much rather it have a push-down squirt-top, but everything else is great.

I had been looking for a vitamin c to add to my skin care regimen. Going into my thirties with having moved back to Sweden where the cold winters are drying out my skin, after years of living in California and Las Vegas, where I was constantly in the sun (without sunscreen most of the time!). By chance, I asked a sales person at a local beauty shop what she recommended and she went straight to …Read more

This little vitamin C essence smells and looks nicely enough. The texture is pretty regular for such products, spreading easily.
But beware if you have a sensitive skin! My skin isn’t the most sensitive and usually reacts well to vitamin C, as I have some products with it in my routine. However, this essence/serum burns like hell! Tried it on my arm first and it really hurt. I removed it …

I think this is a good product because it improves my skin when I use it. The downside is that it's not as good as the milky, mica-free vitamin C serum that it replaced. It had more oomph, I felt like. But not sure about the "oomph" since it's not possible to make a more scientific comparison between this one and the more potent vitamin C-things because the main vitamin …Read more

I would just like to know if the product is non-comedogenic. Since using it I have been getting some congested pores-blackheads. Could some one answer this as I can not find that specific info. I need to figure out what product is doing this. Thanks

There's so much hype about this product in Finland that I had to try it. I got it on sale (so I have the old formula), because Lumene is rebranding and changing some of the formulas (including this). This essence or serum normally costs 19,90 euros, but after the rebranding it will cost 29,90 euros.
The product is nice, but I don't know if it makes such a big difference in my skin …

I really don't know what to make of this product. It has a faint citrusy scent, not particularly overpower. Texture is slightly sticky/tacky, but still easy enough to spread across the skin. As for effectiveness, it does seem to make my skin a little firmer/tighter, though texture is about same (I use exfoliant for this). As for brightness and/or clarity, it seemed at first that it really …Read more

I bought this as an alternative to Paula's Choice Resist C15 Super Booster. When I first used the Lumene I noticed a slight stinging on my face similar to getting citrus juice in a cut. I have been using this product for the past month. The packaging is very similar to the Paula's Choice. The stinging was really apparent the first time I used it, but that became less noticeable the more …Read more

I only use Vitamin C serums on faith - I've never really felt one had an immediate benefit, but I am hoping that is protective over time. This one might be different. I bought it because it was half price of the one I usually use and it had hyaluronic acid. I feel like I've been looking pretty ok lately and this is the only product change, so . . . My skin looks more even, a bit …Read more

I have a harder time pinpointing the benefits of this product than I usually do with skincare products. So I've been trying it out for a pretty long time, and I'm at least 1/2 into the bottle at this point. Truth be told, I'm still a bit unsure of how much this product has done to my skin, and I had to really think back to what my skin was like before I started with it, and …Read more
