Dermalogica BioLumin-C Gel Moisturiser Review

If the goal of your skincare routine is to achieve fresh, glowy skin, then the Dermalogica BioLumin-C Gel Moisturiser will be right up your street; it works to hydrate, brighten and renew your complexion for the ultimate natural-looking glow. Read on to learn all about this radiance-revealing face cream…


The Most Important Thing About This Moisturiser Is…

If there’s one thing you need to know about Dermalogica’s new-for-2021 moisturiser, it’s this: it provides weightless hydration and skin radiance in one. The BioLumin-C facial gel cream offers immediate glowing results while working to strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier for brighter and more even skin – with fine lines and wrinkles visibly reduced after just four weeks.


What Skin Type Is It For?

The BioLumin-C Gel Moisturiser is suitable for all skin types, but it’s especially great for dehydrated or dull complexions in need of a boost of radiance. However, it has a very lightweight texture so very dry skin types might prefer a richer moisturiser, or to use this alongside other moisturisers.

You Will Love This If…

If you struggle with skin dullness, then this is the face cream for you. It’s particularly great for anyone whose skin looks a little dull and lacklustre due to everyday oxidative stress as it helps to brighten and renew your skin on a daily basis. Oh, and if you’re a fan of the iconic Age Smart Biolumin-C Eye Serum, then this is a must-have; it’s the perfect accompaniment!


Hero Ingredients:

As you might expect from Dermalogica, this glow-enhancing, pale yellow gel cream is packed with clever ingredients and powerhouse innovations to unlock your freshest, brightest skin yet. The vegan formula is driven by vitamin C, an iconic skincare ingredient that’s known for its radiance-boosting properties. The likes of vitamin C, verbascum flower, phytic acid and pumpkin enzymes blend together to brighten and renew, as verbascum harnesses the energy of UV rays to turn it into visible light for instant luminosity, while phytic acid and pumpkin unite to smooth and enhance the skin’s radiance through gentle daily exfoliation.

But Dermalogica really pulls out all the stops when it comes to this formula. They continue to showcase vitamin C through an ultra-stable complex that offers improved potency and enhanced penetration, thanks to new technology, while the formula encourages the recycling and reactivation of vitamin C for lasting brightness and luminosity.

And let’s not forget that this gel moisturiser drenches your skin in a wave of hydration. It features no less than five types of hyaluronic acid of differing molecular weights to hydrate both the skin’s surface layer and deeper down in the skin, resulting in a plump, smooth and quenched complexion. To support this process, added saccharides reinforce hydration while vegan-friendly, sugar cane-derived squalane restores the skin’s barrier function.

What Does It Feel Like?

The Dermalogica moisturiser has a light, thin gel-cream texture that glides easily over the skin. It feels slightly tacky when first applied but absorbs quickly. Plus, a little goes a long way!


What Does It Smell Like?

Just like freshly squeezed orange juice! Everything about this moisturiser celebrates vitamin C, so I love that it has a juicy, zesty and vibrant orange scent that reminds you of this key ingredient.


How Do You Use The Product?

Use in both the morning and the evening. After cleansing and toning, apply two or three pumps to the face and neck, massaging it into the skin using light, upward strokes.

If you develop redness or experience itching, then discontinue using the product.

What’s Special About The Design?

With a sleek white tube and a strip of shiny orange running along the top of the pump bottle, the Dermalogica BioLumin-C Gel Moisturiser matches perfectly with the rest of the BioLumin-C range. It has a handy pump top that makes application easy and mess-free, as you can dispense the exact amount to your fingertip before massaging in.



Vegan and cruelty-free.

Artificial fragrance-free, paraben-free, gluten-free.
