Cloudberry. It just sounds delightful, doesn’t it? These little orange berries look like tiny clusters of clouds. Yes, they are tiny, but they pack a massive antioxidant punch because they have twice the amount of vitamin C as oranges. Lumene has taken this rare Lapland treasure and turned Wild Arctic Cloudberries into a truly delightful vitamin C serum, the Nordic-C Glow Boost Essence Serum (24.99/1 Fl. Oz. and $12.99/0.5 Fl. Oz.).
I take really good care of my skin and I avoid sun exposure. I use SPF every single day. I don’t know if it is just because I am getting older or not, but no matter how careful I am I still end up with a more uneven skin tone at the end of the season. I guess it’s time to break out that vitamin C!
Vitamin C is one of the best skin care ingredients available. It addresses multiple signs of aging, soothes skin, and brightens a dull complexion. Basically, it is a kick ass antioxidant that actually protects your skin from all the nasty stressors in the environment. The cloudberry mixture in the Nordic-C Glow Boost Essence Serum has vitamin A, C, E and fatty acids with an extra dose of stabilized bio-available Vitamin C.
Not all vitamin C products are equal, though. To keep the efficacy of the ingredient, the packaging needs to be right because exposure to light or air will destabilize this antioxidant and render it completely ineffective. Packaging needs to opaque and it needs to restrict any exposure to air. Lumene’s Nordic-C Glow Boost Essence Serum has a terrific packaging, with a bright orange opaque bottle and an air-restrictive dropper.
Vitamin C is terrific, but it’s even better if it is paired with another top of the line skin care ingredient. The Nordic-C Glow Boost Essence Serum is a concentrated mixture of Wild Arctic Cloudberry and Vitamin C, along with Pure Arctic Spring Water and two types of Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is simply fabulous for skin, holding about 1,000 times its own weight in water, so it hydrates and plumps skin like crazy. Plus, the antioxidant properties fight environmental stressors and lessens wrinkles while also increasing a smooth texture. The duo of Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid is a truly superior combo for maximum results.
The Lumene Glow Boost Essence Serum is a light, nonsticky serum that soaks in quickly. It smells pretty incredible – like a very yummy and fresh citrus. I find that it gives very quick results, so if you are impatient you will be happy! My skin has a more even tone, looks bright and glowy, and is plumped and smoothed. And the price point is fantastic!
Lumene Glow Boost Essence Serum is made with all naturally derived ingredients and is 100% vegan, gluten-free, paraben free and cruelty free. You can find this delightfully sunny serum at Target and CVS. – Lisa
