Dermalogica Biolumin-C Brightening Vitamin C Serum [Review]

Product: Dermalogica Biolumin-C Brightening Vitamin C Serum 

Price: INR 8000 for 30ml

About the product: A High-performance serum enhances skin’s natural defense system to brighten, firm and help dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Advanced bio-technology and an ultra-stable Vitamin C complex work synergistically to enhance bioavailability of Vitamin C to fight oxidative stress and the appearance of skin aging before it starts. Optimized delivery system combined with a peptide and AHA renews for brighter, firmer, more radiant skin.

How to Use: Dispense 4-5 drops onto your hand. Smooth over cleansed face and neck in the morning & night, after toning and before moisturizing. 

Packaging & Appearance: This serum comes in a white opaque glass bottle (to prevent the vitamin C serum from oxidizing in sunlight and losing its potency), with a glass dropper. The bottle is sturdy, practical and easy to travel with. 

Contents & Features of the product: Let’s have a look at the ingredients this product has. 

It has Chia Seed Oil: Rich in antioxidants that protect against free radicals and contains more than 60% Omega-3 Fatty Acids to build that healthy skin barrier. 

It has Sophora Japonica Flower Extract: Contains strong antioxidant activity and helps return the skin to a calm state after experiencing oxidative stress. 

It has Vitamin C Complex: Unique short-chain peptide that uses innovative anti-wrinkle technology

It has Lactic Acid: Treats hyperpigmentation and age spots

It has Palmitoyl Tripeptide 5: A peptide that can increase the production of collagen 

It has Hyaluronic Acid: It forms a film on the surface of the skin to reduce the loss of water from the epidermis (outer layer of the skin) as well as acting as a humectant to draw water into the skin and increase the water content of the epidermis.  

It has Vitamin E: A fat-soluble antioxidant that helps protect the skin from the free radical damage caused by UV radiation. It is particularly effective when combined with Vitamin C. 

Texture of the product: The texture of the serum is a bit thick yet runny. It feels a bit tacky initially as you apply it, but then it absorbs into the skin within a few seconds and your skin feels smooth and hydrated. It has a citrus-y fragrance which is not too strong, and lasts only for a couple of seconds. It does not make your skin greasy or oily, it settles into your skin and instantly makes it plumper.

Effects & Experience: The review for this one was long overdue. I have finished the product already and here I am sharing my views on this serum. 

As I started using this serum regularly, the first thing that I did notice was that my skin looked much brighter and smoother. What is special about this serum is that it uses bio-technology, lactic acid, and an ultra-stable vitamin C complex, which works to fight the appearance of skin ageing before it starts. It also has Peptide and AHA, which helps in reducing unbalanced pigmentation. It is a great serum to invest in if you’re in your 20s or above that, and looking for a product with all the goodness that your skin needs. 

The texture feels a bit tacky when applied, but it settles into the skin and makes your face feel smooth and brightened. My skin felt rejuvenated after a couple of weeks as I used this. It does not leave you with a greasy or oily feeling and gets absorbed into the skin. It is suitable for all skin types, and even people with sensitive skin can use it. It does not irritate your skin at all. And you can use it during the day and at night as well. Keeps your skin really hydrated and radiant.
