What up guys? Today I have a skincare review 0f Lumapro-C Brightening Pigment Corrector Serum from Hydropeptide that I received through Brand Backer.
This is probably one of the fanciest skincare products I have used. It’s chalk full of great ingredients to lighten pigmentation, brighten skin and improve the quality overall of one’s skin.
The Lumapro-C claims to safely brighten and lighten your complexion with a drug-free formula. Reducing the appearance of all types of hyperpigmentation, from age spots, acne, and sun damage using a combination of corrective skin brighteners including 3 Peptides. It also claims to help prevent any further hyperpigmentation.
Lumapro-C has 8 clinical strength brightening ingredients that are supposed to reduce hyperpigmentation by resurfacing your skin and prevents future discoloration that cause an uneven complexion.
Key Active and Ingredients.
DermalRX SRC – Breaks down hyperpigmented cells which enhances skin texture and brightness.
Stable Vitamin C – BV-OSC is the most effective and stable vitamin C available.
Algaktiv LightSKN – A select blend of microalgae clinically proven to brighten age spots.
Belides™ NP – An extract from flowers of Bellis perennis that contains saponins, polyphenols and polysaccharides have been shown to decrease ET-1 protein production in the tyrosine pathway.

The instructions say to apply a small amount to a clean face and neck the follow with moisturizer and SPF during the day. They recommend using the serum morning and night.
So, does it really work? Yes.
After using this serum for about 3 weeks fairly consistently, admittedly I tend to skip the night application. But in the time I have used the Lumapro-C I have started to see a clearer complexion with a reduction of sun damage. If you have been around here for any amount of time or seen my face, you know I have a very fair, and sensitive complexion. For lack of better way to describe my skin, I have Ron Weasley skin. That pinky pale skin that freckles at the mention of sunlight, not to mention I sizzle like bacon in the direct sunlight. (SPF is a must) Anyway, something to help fade some of the hyperpigmentation I have
The Before picture was taken about a month or so ago and the After is from 2 days ago. Despite the lighting being different, you can see the hyperpigmentation is faded somewhat.
Anyway, something to help fade some of the hyperpigmentation I have acquired over the last 30 years from sun damage and acne is a welcome addition to my routine. I’m glad to say the Luma-C has made a gradual difference thus far. It’s one of those things where you look in the mirror and think, “what’s different about my face?” and you realize it’s way less speckled and blotchy. So yeah, I’m happy with it.
I’m really happy with the way my skin looks with makeup on. I the pictures above I’m wearing ELF Beautifully Bare Serum Foundation lightened up with NYX Pro Foundation Mixer which together is a pretty light weight foundation along with minimal concealing just under my eyes with Maybelline Age Rewind. As far as powder I used ELF HD setting powder which gives no additional coverage. I haven’t edited anything about my skin in the photos, just slapped on a watermark and a vignette.
The formula is a typical creamy serum, with a slight citrus scent and a very medicinal scent that I’m not the biggest fan of but I noticed a lot of skincare having that smell. The package is really nice, and hygienic too.
Hydropeptide was cool enough to provide me with a discount code for you guys too. Use code BBLUMA20 to receive 20% off your LumaPro-C purchase. (It’s just a discount code, I’m not being paid! ) Which is great cause Luma-C ain’t cheap, it retails for $148. Yeah, $148 is pretty expensive and not an amount I would spend on skincare typically. That’s my only complaint is the price. It’s kind of ridiculous for 1 fl oz of product. I get it has all these great ingredients and works pretty well, but still. I know there are more affordable alternatives out there. Sorry about it.
Anyway, you can purchase the Lumapro-C here: http://shop.hydropeptide.com/lumapro-c/
Keep in mind, that Brandbacker did send me this to review but that all opinions I express are my own, I’m stating the claims of the product and how I feel it performed for me. If it sucked I’d tell you. Trust me. You can check out my other reviews for proof on that. LOL.
