Lumene Products Review

The Nordic summer. Abbreviated, intense, and filled with extreme light and power. During this brief season of midnight sun, after many months of harsh conditions and freezing temperatures, arctic plants gather their extraordinary strength and energy with astonishing speed. Torture-tested by the elements and harvested by hand, the raw materials of the Arctic are the most potent on Earth. Lumene harnesses the power of these berries and plants into effective skincare and cosmetics developed to illuminate your unique, natural beauty.
Lumene carries makeup, skin care. and body care for both women and men. They use natural ingredients including Cloudberry, Heather, Spring water, Sea Buckthorn, Lingonberry, Blueberry, and Rose Hip to create products that are gentle on the skin and provide a variety of benefits such as moisture and firmness.

I was given the opportunity to review a a variety of travel size products.
Radiant Touch Refreshing Foam Cleanser
This light, creamy foam cleanser removes all make-up and impurities as it refreshes with its invigorating scent. Unique arctic cloudberry oil helps to boost your skin's natural radiance. Leaves skin feeling clean, fresh and radiant.

Radiant Touch Refreshing Toner
This refreshing toner is formulated to perfect your skin cleansing. Detoxifying, unique arctic cloudberry nectar helps to boost your skin's natural brightness. This toner with invigorating scent leaves skin perfectly clean, bright and radiant.

Time Freeze Firming Day Cream SPF 15
The cream helps to maintain the skin’s youthfulness, has a firming effect and prevents the formation of lines. Contains arctic heather, which protects the skin’s elastin fibres, and plant proteins activate the skin’s collagen production. Arbutin in the heather prevents pigment changes in the skin. The cream’s optimal UVA/UVB ratio protects the skin from the ageing effect and pigment changes caused by sunlight.

Vitamin C + Pure Radiance Day Cream SPF 15
Fresh cream gives your skin radiance while protecting it against the harmful effects of the sun. Optimal UVA protection. Arctic cloudberry seed oil, which is bursting with natural antioxidants, fortifies the skin and protects it from both external and internal stress factors. The detox properties of cloudberry nectar help to make the skin look brighter and more radiant. Ideal for women, especially 25+ who are in the middle of the “rush years”. Suitable for all skin types.

Sensitive Touch Cleansing Wipes
No energy or time to go through your normal skin cleansing routine? No worries. Wipes will take off all your makeup in one easy step - with no mess and no irritation. These alcohol-free wipes sweep quickly, gently yet thoroughly away dirt, oil and makeup from the skin without water. Soft wipes are super-convenient and really easy to use, also travel-friendly.  Gentle formula contains 100% organic soothing arctic linen seed extract to calm the skin. Sensitive formula doesn't leave a greasy residue and doesn't sting on your eyes. Leaves your skin pleasantly fresh. Suitable for face, eye & lip makeup removal. Ideal for all skin types including sensitive skin.

I am glad I was given the opportunity to try these skincare products. There were things I liked about them and things I didn't like. They were very gentle on my skin however I did not notice that upon using the wipes my skin felt a slight stinging. I am not sure why and it was rather a bummer since I thought the texture of the wipes was great, super soft, and they did a great job removing makeup and dirt. The cleanser left my skin feeling smooth and clean and had a very pleasant smell. The toner was a little difficult to apply. It is very thin water like and it mostly ran down my hands, other then that I thought it left my face feeling refreshed. As for both day creams, I thought they left my skin feeling a little too greasy and looking a little too shiny. I already tend to have oily skin so I was not impressed with them.

Lumene carries several products aside from these that I believe are worth a try. They can be purchased in various retail locations as well as online.
