[REVIEW] LUMENE Bright Now Vitamin C BB Cream SPF20 (#00 Fair)

Hi there ~ Today I'm reviewing the second Lumene product on this blog :) I usually don't like BB Creams sold here in Finland because no doubt the lightest possible shades are always too dark & too orange for me skin. Today's product is Bright Now Vitamin C BB Cream with SPF20 in shade 00 Fair :) Shall we see if it matches my fair skin or if it's too dark? Continue reading if you want to find out ~ ^^

 PACKAGING 

Like the mask I reviewed while ago - this one also has the typical Lumene design in it. I really like the packaging style in all Lumene products. All information are written in Finnish, Swedish and English :) The BB Cream itself comes in a squeeze type tube with a twist off cap. Before you can use the product you must remove the secure seal and you're good to go !



I added the INCI list to COSDNA - There seems to be few ingredients that might cause acne or irritation. I haven't experienced any of those because of this product. Just make sure to cleanse your makeup thoroughly before going to sleep :)

 


 WHERE TO BUY? 

In Finland you can buy this pretty much everywhere :) From Lumene site you can find the closest retailers & webstores to you ~

 SCENT & TEXTURE 

I can't really pinpoint the actual scent of this... My nose is reminded of lemon and licorice mixed with baby powder. It's not too strong and not bad scent imo. The texture is somewhat thick and I like to use beautyblender when applying this. Applying with fingers is no problem either but it takes more time... 

 COVERAGE / WHEN WORN 

The coverage is better than I expected. Out of all Western "BB Creams" (more like tinted moisturizers...) sold here in Finland I find this one seems to be the most similar to Korean BB Creams. It doesn't cover redness that well and is tad too orange to my liking but I can deal with this amount. The shade is pretty dark considering it's called Fair. There are also Light and Medium available... I'm already scared just thinking how dark & orange they would be ! The brightening effect is no joke with this one ! In terms of what it claims to do I'd say it excels in all 6 steps :) See the photos below for yourself ^^



 SUMMARY 

+ Fulfills all it claims to do - My skin looks healthy !
+ SPF20
+ Mild & pleasant scent
+ Informative packaging
+ Suitable for all skintypes
+ Hasn't caused me breakouts or irritations

- Some ingredients might cause breakouts or irritations
- People overseas might not be able to find this easily

 RATING: 4½/5  Would I repurchase this product? I honestly don't know ! For a western BB Cream I'm really impressed with this one :) If I do a giveaway with Finnish cosmetics in the future would you like to see this included? What's your favorite BB Cream? Comment below and let me know ^^
