Dermalogica's BioLumin-C Serum is popular. In fact, the beauty brand's vitamin C serum currently has close to 450 perfect reviews at Ulta — and it's one of the brand's best-sellers. Chalk it up to Dermalogica's unique blend of the vitamin and Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, a synthetic peptide (aka a building block for your skin); which, by the way, just so happen to both be included in Dermalogica's new BioLumin-C Eye Serum.
Consider it the eye-area version of the original serum. Debuted online Jan. 2, the $70 eye serum is formulated to achieve similar results: Brightening and firming skin while simultaneously increasing skin elasticity (ergo diminishing the likelihood of fine lines). But this time, it's fine-tuned to assist the delicate eye area — where the skin experiences 100,000 movements per day, according to the brand. That may seem like a lot, but it makes sense when you consider how often you blink, squint, or roll your eyes.
And like the BioLumin-C face serum, the eye serum's vitamin C is assisted by chia seed oil, a moisturizing and potent source of free-radical-fighting antioxidants. The mega-popular tremella mushroom makes an appearance in the formula, as well, where it aids hydration by infusing your skin with water-retaining molecules, similar to how hyaluronic acid operates. And you can't forget about the eye serum's algae extract; Dunaliella salina extract offers the tone-evening vitamin B12.
However, the best part of the serum may be how seamlessly it fits into any current routine. Since it's a serum — versus the standard eye cream — you can layer it however your heart desires, both in the morning and before you hit the hay. You can even use it under any eye cream you already have on deck; BioLumin-C Eye Serum can be applied to your skin between cleansing or exfoliating and before moisturizers and creams. (The serum uses papain, an exfoliator sourced from papayas, to gently kickstart your eye area's turnover system, too.)
And if you're ready to squeeze it into your own skincare lineup, then you can find the serum online at the beauty brand's website or snag the new skincare product from Ulta. Below, the BioLumin-C Eye Serum from Dermalogica.
