I’m often asked what I used to keep my skin looking years younger than it’s chronological age, and the answer is always, Vitamin C for day and a Retinol at night. Vitamin C has been a mainstay in my skin care regimen for quite some time now, and I highly recommend it for all women who need an efficacious anti-aging product in their beauty routine.
I was recently given Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C BB Serum to try out and review and I was quite excited because I am already a fan of their Bright Now Vitamin C+ Beauty Drops and Lumene Vitamin C+ Pure Radiance Day Cream with SPF 15 so I was looking forward to having a positive experience with the Bright Now Vitamin C BB Serum, which I did.
Here are the details about Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C BB Serum $21.99:

I have 50 something normal-to-dry skin that looks younger, but I treat it as its age. I also have some melasma, which I am constantly working on. Since I am in my 50s, my main skin care concerns are brightening, lifting and pore minimizing. When I had a look at the BB Serum bottle, I saw that it does address 2 of these issues. Score!
What I love is that this serum is equivalent to a lightweight moisturizer. In fact, I used it as such for these past summer months, and just finished my skin with another layer of lightweight sunscreen. The texture is not what I expected to see in a Vitamin C serum. It’s like a lotion serum – lightweight, yet creamy and lovely feeling when it touches my skin.
I found that upon application my skin looks and feels amazingly smooth and bright. I’m confident enough to only add a little concealer for my dark circles and venture out without the benefit of makeup while using Lumene Vitamin C BB Serum. I supposed that’s the whole point of using a BB Serum, that your skin looks great enough to go bare!
While there are no promises of firmer skin, Vitamin C does in fact affect collagen production, and I can tell that my skin has remained firm while using this Vitamin C BB Serum. Also, with other Vitamin C serums, you have to worry about the product oxidizing and changing colors, and thereby having a negative effect on your skin. Not so with Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C BB Serum.
From the first pump to the last, the product remains the same pale yellow color and retains the same consistency as well. One more thing – Vitamin C Serums are often so strong that they need to be used sparingly and eased into, but these Vitamin BB Serum is gentle enough to jump right into using. Gentle, yet effective – remember that!
