Product Review: Lumene Vitamin C+ Radiance Lotion and Nectar

I'm a big believer in happy accidents. Things that don't really have any rhyme or reason, but just end up being great solutions to your needs. That is exactly how I feel about my new HG skincare routine.

As you can see, I am already on my second bottle of the Vitaminc C+ Pure Radiance 24 h lotion, and half way through the Vitamin C+ Bright Skin Radiance Nectar.

I was inbetween finishing my previous skincare routine, and looking to try some Yonka products actually, when I was at CVS and thought I would try these out. I'm kind of a sucker for stats, and it had this huge display saying 84% of users saw brighter skin after using this combo - and that was enough for me.

About the products...

Pure Radiance 24 h lotion (left) Bright Skin Radiance Nectar (right)
Lumene Skincare - This specific product line has over  90% natural ingredients and is paraben free.

The Lumene Vitamin C+ Pure Radiance 24 h lotion, is a really lightweight lotion that can be used day or night (hence the 24 hour notion). The main ingridient in this product is the Artic Cloudberry oil - which also gives it a ligh yellow tint and a soft citrus smell. The consistency is very "gel" like, as in its very lightweight and absorbs into the skin instantly. Probably one of the quickest absorbing lotions I have ever used.

What they claim: This lotion is designed to leave a matte surface on the skin. With regular use it promises to normalize sebum production and helps to reduce the appearance of pores. Arctic cloudberry seed oil, which has natural antioxidants, protects the skin from stress factors.
The Lumene Vitaminc C+ Bright Skin Radiance Nectar, is a silky serum that is used underneath the moisterizer (day or night). The nector in this product is actually Artic Clouldberry nectar. The product is  lightweight and absorbs pretty well.

What they claim: It gently exfoliates, minimizes pores and makes the skin look smooth. The detox properties of cloudberry nectar are designed to help make the skin look brighter and more radiant.

What I think:

I am defnitley a believer, after finishing one bottle of the 24h lotion, I can say that my skin looks really healthy. My acne spots are starting to fade, and when I switched from using this to the Yonka products, my skin broke out horribly.

I would say that the biggest thing for me is in how my skin feels after I use either product, and if I could use only one word I to desscribe it, it would be HYDRATED. There is something about this line of products that instantly add a touch of brightness and bring the skin back to life (in the morning) and help your skin stay hyrdated all night long.

I would defnitley repurchase (I already have), but like many of you I'm always looking to try new things, so who knows how long I'll be on this kick. I can that this has defnitley found a home in my bathroom cabinet and that speaks for itself.


  1. love your style!!
    you´re so cute....
    follow u =D

  2. i've been looking for something that brings that feeling back to my skin! when we were out of town a few weeks ago, I felt that I needed to pick one of these up--I debated over getting the nectar and the night creme, and then decided against it. Now I know I NEED to pick them up! HG material?! I really need to try! xx

  3. @Silvia - thank you :)

    @fantastic - let me know how you end up liking them - I'll be looking forward to it :) It's so hard to find something that's hydrating and lightweight (this was finally a product that did both)
