Dermalogica Biolumin-C Eye Serum Review

I for one do not take care of my eyes half as much as I should do! In terms of my skincare routine, I do try to use an eye cream as often as I remember but I could definitely do better. I got super excited when this new eye serum launch arrived on my doorstep from Dermalogica cause boy do my eyes need it at the moment and I couldn't wait to give it a test run and see how much it helped my under eyes.

At the beginning of 2020, Dermalogica added to their already amazing eye care range with the new Biolumin-C eye serum. Your eyes are used every minute of every day whether you're sleeping, scrolling, watching tv or talking so all that hard work deserves a product that works as hard as they do. The Biolumin-C eye serum is designed to fight premature ageing that is caused by the daily movements of your eyes and environmental stresses as well as delivering ingredients to help brighten and firm the skin.

The serum has 4 key ingredients that help to revive your eyes. Vitamin C complex which is a unique combination of two vitamin C molecules to fight oxidative stress, brighten and firm the eye area. Arjun Tree extract which is full of polyphenols which help to boost your skin's resilience and provides antioxidants. Tremella Mushroom which helps to lock in moisture in your skin whilst supporting skin resistance. Salvia Hispanica oil which is also known as chia seed oil which is filled with antioxidants whilst moisturising and helping to quench free radicals. 

I've been testing the Biolumin-C eye serum morning and night for the past couple of months to really put it to the test. Now I know working all sorts of different shifts and being up all sorts of different hours, my eyes have definitely felt the brunt of it so testing this eye serum couldn't have come at a better time. Before testing the serum out, my under eyes are usually the drier part of my face and I also suffer from what I call laugh/smile lines around my eyes as well as unfortunately suffering from some fine lines underneath my lower eyelashes. I get sensitive under eyes and find that sometimes I get stinging around the outer edges of my under eyes and sometimes my eyes will water for ages after I've put makeup around my eye area and have noticed that it tends to coincide with different eye creams, whilst using the Biolumin-C serum I've noticed that my eyes haven't stung at all when I've put anything over the top.

Now how did the makeup apply on top of the serum? I was surprised with how my under eye makeup looked not just when it was applied but throughout the course of the day. I normally find that as the day progresses my under eyes tend to get drier and the makeup tends to cling to it. However, once I started introducing the serum I noticed that my makeup was sitting nicely under my eyes and it didn't cling, I also noticed that it didn't really settle into the fine lines around my eyes. It also smells amazing, so nice and fresh so it's great to wake you up in the morning. Also a little tip, if you put it in the fridge it's also really refreshing and awakening so as the weather starts warming up, it's the perfect refresher for the hot weather.

A little goes a long way when applying but I don't know if it was just my tube but my one issue with the product was that I did notice that getting the product out of the tube was a bit troublesome at times. I love that it's not eye cream in a pot so it's more hygienic but some of the time it would come out with no problems and then some of the time it seemed like air bubbles got trapped and sometimes it lead to too much product coming out, maybe because it's a squeeze tube that a bit too much air got sucked back in once you'd put the tube down during application. But that is solely my only issues with the product and is not something that would put me off repurchasing it.

Do you use any eye cream?

Speak to you next time!
