My favorite serums! (pt. ii)
You can’t have too many serums on your shelf, trust me. I am NOTORIOUS for collecting serums, despite not being knowledgeable about every single one of them. The products on my favorite list have been tried and true in my book and have worked for me 🙂 While I no longer support Good Molecules on my IG, I still can reminisce about the goodness their serums had offered me before they were empty 😭 LUMENE - Nordic-C Glow Boost Essence Serum 30ml this is one of my favorite vitamin c serums because of its “gel-like” yet lightweight texture. It smelled exactly of oranges and brightened up my face within 2 weeks of using it! I loved how I was able to pick it up at Target and buy it for around $13. It offered me a fresh glow that I haven’t gotten in awhile from any other vitamin c product I’ve used thus far. GOOD MOLECULES - Daily Brightening Serum this is another brightening serum that has served me well! It definitely helped in targeting any hyperpigmentation I had and made my skin look hella good in the sunlight with that glow 😜😜 it was my favorite serum to use before an AM moisturizer! GOOD MOLECULES - Super Peptide Serum this super peptide serum WASNT one I was familiar with. I mean, peptides? For what??! Apparently, the peptides and copper tripeptides help to hydrate, brighten and smooth skin. Ultimately, I really enjoyed this serum for the PM. The next day, my skin would look so good that sometimes I wouldn’t even wear makeup that day. Who would’ve thunk! 😌
My daily skincare routine :) In the mornings, I also use LUMENE - Nordic-C Glow Boost Essence Serum 30ml but I ran out and need to buy more, I love the way this serum makes my skin look and feel. It makes me look more radiant, and makes my complexion less uneven. 1.) First, I use the PACIfICA - Cosmic Hemp Balancing Face Wash morning and night, and I’ve used this face wash for about 4 months now and I’ve bought it twice. Makes my skin more relaxed and look less stressed, really helps with unevenness. This is a more light-weight face wash, but it helps with stressed and bumpy skin. 2.) The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I use this after my face wash, and I love this serum so so much!! And so cheap for the quality!! $7. I got my mom to use The Ordinary now, too. This serum helps with oily skin, redness and blemishes and I can definitely tell the difference after use :) 3.) TATCHA - The Water Cream This moisturizer changed my skin completely!! I started out using this as a sample size from my Ipsy bag, and bought a few more sample sizes after that. I decided to just buy the bigger container instead of spending $20 every 2-3 weeks. The one that I have is a little bigger than average, and I think it was about $86, and the regular size is around $68. Although not the most affordable, this moisturizer makes my skin so so smooth and got rid of fine lines on my face, I would highly recommend this product to anybody. 4.) PACIfICA - Pore Warrior Oil Fighter Booster Serum (Only at night) I really like Pacifica, and I think it is an underrated brand. I can tell this serum has done good things for my skin, my pores look a little smaller, but it isn’t any life changing. I think this is $12, and you can get it at Target or Walmart. 5.) GLAMGLOW - BRIGHTEYES Illuminating Anti-Fatigue Eye Cream I also got this product from one of my Ipsy bags, and I’ve been using it instead of my Burt’s Bee’s eye cream, which is also really good. I can tell this cream has helped minimize my puffiness and dark spots underneath my eyes.

Finally got my hands on a full size lumenefinland : Nordic-C, Glow Reveal Peeling Mask! I love it for two reasons: 1. it smells AMAZING and 2. I think its the nicest, most gentle Vitamin C mask iv tried. you use it 2ce a week, leave on for 10 minutes and wipe off with a warm damp cloth and then rinse face with warm water. . I use it in the morning (have had a sample size iv been exploiting) and it just feels soooo good! It makes my skin look bright and smooth. but its not a huge intense vit C slap so it may not be everyones first choice. What makes it different? It’s oil-soluble, so it penetrates skin faster than any other form of vitamin C, which means you get your Vit C hit much quicker. this ingredient is lower down the list so the dosage of it is not mega watt high. Then there is a whole bunch of fruit extracts like: Bilberry, which contains antioxidants, protecting the skin from free radicals (pollution and ‘living modern life’ cell damage) + Cloudberry and Lemon which have brightening properties! this product does contain alcohol and perfume. i am not someone who is fussed about this..it does not irritate my skin, and although not sensitive, my skin can be grizzly but it (and I) LOVE THIS MASK!
Here are some thoughts on Lumene products: 🧡Glow Reveal Peeling Mask: A gentle exfoliating mask with AHA. Skin felt softer and more hydrated after. Not as intense or effective as more popular AHA masks but if those are too irritating for you this might be a good fit. Does contain fragrance but didn’t irritate me. 🧡Glow Boost Essence. My favorite of these! A vitamin c derivative serum. Hydrating and absorbs nicely. I’ve found myself reaching for this over my other derivatives in the morning. Does add an extra glow. Also contain fragrance though. Overall, I like the products. Good quality for the money. If your interested you can find their products at Target and CVS!

Lumene: thick yet useless however I’m not ready to give up on it. Ren; Great until I used midnight recovery serum...retinol and Acids don’t play well together.

Got my hands on a lumene Glow
Got my hands on a lumene Glow Boost Essence and all is right with the world, y’all. 🍊 I could rave about this stuff all day bc honestly, it’s a go-to product for me & it’s worth every penny. Plus, it’s available at cvspharmacy which is wonderful for a savvy shopper like myself. 💸 This essence is a 1, 2 🤜🏾 of vitamin c & hyaluronic acid which = glowing and hydrated skin all day, every day. 😎 It does have a light citrus fragrance but isn’t overpowering. This is by far my fave Lumene product and it has worked very well for my oily/combo skin. 👏🏾
I've been using the lumene Val
I've been using the lumene Valo line as my exclusive morning routine for the past week and a half. While this isn't enough time to tell whether the brightening aspects are working, I can tell you that these are all lovely, hydrating, lightweight products. It's always nice to be able to test a whole range together, as the products are formulated to complement each other. When used together this routine has made my skin softer and provided the perfect amount of moisture to keep my combo skin hydrated but not oily. Lumene Valo Cleansing Balm - a lovely creamy cleansing balm that effectively took off my light makeup when used at night and left skin feeling very clean. I think this is more suited to an evening routine as it's more cleansing than I need in the morning. Lumene Valo Glow Refresh Hydrating Mist - this mist toner provides a layer of watery moisture, crucial for the summer months. Very light and gentle, and doesn't sting my eyes! Lumene Valo Glow Boost Essence - a super hydrating essence rich in vitamin C. Feels very light and non-greasy. Has become my go-to hydrating serum! Lumene Valo Glow Reveal Day Cream - the perfect weight moisturizer for combination skin. More hydrating than a gel, but very light for a cream. Absorbs impressively well!
The Invisible Illumination mak
The Invisible Illumination make-up range is a weightless, water-based formula enriched with Nordic skincare ingredients. These products help brighten, hydrate and perfect the skin for a healthy and naturally glowing beauty. All this is from their website. I personally found these super easy to apply and blend and true to their claims the water based formula is super light weight on the skin. The four products that I own are the Instant Glow Beauty Serum, Water color Blush, Water Color Bronzer and Instant Illuminizer. These are good products and they deserve a detailed review. So far my favorite is the serum and the blush. The Blush color is very flattering on my skintone. The Illuminizer is good too, but if I had to choose, I would have chose a different shade. I have yet to try the bronzer.

lumene is a new brand to me. T
lumene is a new brand to me. This is my very first product from them. It is a Hydrating mist. My very first impression is good. It is too early to say much about the product as I have just used it for 3 times but the nozzle on the spray bottle is FANTASTIC!! It pumps fine, even, light airy, cloudy mist. The smell is lovely and as you can see the bottle is absolutely Gorgeous! A delight to photograph! Big thumbs up 👍🏻

The first time I saw this product was on a Facebook post a few year ago 👀 and as I continued to read about it, I knew I had to try this LUMENE - Nordic-C Glow Boost Essence Serum 30ml ! It retails for $24.99 (30 ml - 1 fl oz), comes in a glass bottle with a dropper. I purchased my first bottle at Ulta and was 100% intrigued by the Artic Cloudberry (antioxidant) ingredient. The entire line is inspired by Nordic women and the Arctic conditions. It has a slight scent that resembles mild floral notes and it is a watery consistency that gets quickly gets absorbed. The product is meant to be a “miracle boosting serum for brighter-looking, intensely hydrated skin,” according to the Lumene website. It most definitely brightens my skin and I saw the results after a weeks of using it daily. Next it claims to hydrate and for sure it does hydrate my skin! I remember buying this serum around the winter season because I needed major hydration for my skin! I saw how it was inspired by the weather conditions of Norway and helped women there. I like that it’s not too thick and you can easily apply it to the face. However, the only item I saw in the description claim that I didn’t see was plumping of the face. I am not too sure what they mean by that but I also didn’t see my face “plumping” either. Other than that they are an awesome line with really cool products targeting different areas. I hope you all try this brand out and let me know your thoughts! 🧡🧡🧡
