ThisThatBeauty was recently invited to an evening of Finnish beauty secrets via Lumene, a masstige Scandinavian skin care brand widely available at CVS, Target, Ulta Beauty, and Sears. Contributor, Christene Carr (@ChristeneCarr) tells all…
Lumene products fuse technology and Artic natural ingredients to create targeted skin care potions that take the guess work out of choosing. Product categories and offerings are broken down based on age, skin type, and usage. The packaging includes an easy-to-use age range usage scale (back of packaging) and color coded matching system to clearly identify products in each line, and sun/moon symbols to denote day or night usage.
The Vitamin C+ product range is designed for women 25+. The use of cluodberry seed oil and nectar, lingonberry, blueberry and cranberry seed oil along with Vitamin C, offer optimal protection against the signs of aging and provide detoxifying benefits.
Excellent Future is designed for women 30+ (like yours truly). The products help to promote skin’s ability to repair. According to Lumene, through the unique formulation called ApplexcellT, which contains stem cells from the Scandinavian Uttwiler Spatlauber apple and Arctic white peat, skin’s structure is strengthened by improving its barrier system and moisture balance.
Time Freeze is for women 40+. The product range contains Artic heather and plant proteins, and according to Lumene, “extract from heather flowers help maintain healthy levels of collagen and elastin fibers in skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines.” Arbutin, a skin brightener, is found in the stalks of the heather plant and help to lighten and prevent pigment changes.
