Lumene Vitamin C Serum Product Review

Lumene Vitamin C Serum Product ReviewLumene Vitamin C Bright Skin Radiance Nectar

After hearing several doctors recommend Vitamin C serum for skin care, especially on aging skin, I decided on this brand to try.  At first I was a bit concerned, because it has a definite scent of orange (which is pleasant), but as one who battles rosacea, my concern was that this product would really irritate my skin and flare that up.

This product does separate, so you do need to shake it vigorously several times during application.  I was however, pleasantly surprised with this serum.  It did not irritate my skin or give a burning sensation.  It actually felt moisturizing and I found I really liked it.   I noticed it helped even out skin tone and help with better texture.  I really love this product now!

The only con I would add to this is sometimes the applicator squirts either further out than expected, or dribbles down the side of the bottle, so occasionally it was messy.  Other than that, I would give this vitamin C serum a rating of 4 stars.

Derma Wand Product Review

Derma Wand Product ReviewDerma Wand Product Review

Product features and claims: that it stimulates and rejuvenates by sending out a gentle stream of low level micro-current impulses up to 168,000 cycles per second, imitating hundreds of tiny fingers that massage your skin – and massage helps improve circulation bringing oxygen and vital nutrients to your skin s surface. The gentle micro current also has a thermal effect on the skin s surface, helping the skin look more toned and tight, smoothing out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

I have been using this product a week now and am happy with it, and seeing a reduction of wrinkles and an overall smoothing of my skin.  It does has an odd odor while using, but that is normal and its not an offensive smell.  It’s the oxygen and it smells similar to after a rain.  The sensation of the wand on your face isn’t too intense, unless you lift the bulb off the skin, then it feels like mini electrical shocks, so be sure to keep the wand in direct contact with the skin.

I do have rosacea, so I don’t use this product on areas that flare, because this can and does increase rosacea issues.  I do use it around my eyes, forehead, neck and jaw areas however, which is what I wanted to focus on anyways.

As for the skin care line.  It’s ok, but not superb.  I believe there are better products out there.  The pre-treatment product is basically an aloe vera based gel product.  You could just use an aloe vera gel, or your favorite moisturizer as a pre-treatment.

Overall, I would highly recommend the derma wand, I love it and can’t wait to see even more dramatic results with more time.  So far, I’m impressed!

Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisturizing Balm Product Review

Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisturizing Balm Product ReviewBobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisturizing Balm Product Review

As a person who has rosacea, skin care products can be difficult to use and many irritate and damage my skin, so I need to be very careful and vigilant on which products I can use.    Since I also have hypothyroid issues,  I tend to battle super dry, alligator like skin that is quite resistant to being moisturized.

This product of Bobbi Brown’s is a heavy, night cream type and while it does feel heavy at first, it absorbs quite quickly into skin.  When someone has super dry skin, this actually feels good.  I was VERY impressed with this product!    My skin looked noticeably hydrated, wrinkles minimized and my skin felt very soft after 5 days of use.  It didn’t irritate or flare my rosacea.  I saw more visible differences with this product, than any I’ve used to date.

The only thing I don’t care for is the scent.  Although it is lightly scented, it smells more like lemon pledge to me in a slightly negative sense.  The scent does dissipate fairly soon, so that’s not a deal breaker for me.   Although it is an expensive product, a little goes a long way, and it is worth every penny.  I give the Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisturizing Balm  4.5 star rating.
