Frequently Asked Questions
Does Lumin work for dark circles
Lumin skin care includes three new products that target the under-eye area:
- Dark Circle Defense
- Eye-Puff Deflator
- Anti-Fatigue Eye Patch
In this review, we take a close look at each product to help you decide if any of these might work for your specific undereye issues.
Dark Circle Defense is one of Lumin's best sellers and it isn't hard to see why. This formula contains some of the most effective ingredients for fighting dark and tired under eyes, including niacinamide or vitamin B3 (brightens, fights inflammation and has anti-aging properties), caffeine (reduces puffiness and fights free radicals), and lemon extract (antioxidant properties, improves uneven skin tone). We also like the addition of licorice root extract as it's shown to have significant brightening effects. This is a pretty powerful combination that should help with a range of undereye problems, including dark and uneven skin tone, puffiness and fine lines.
The Eye-Puff Deflator is specifically designed to reduce the appearance of puffy eyes in the morning. It contains cucumber and green tea extracts that help boost hydration and soothe the skin, as well as vitamin B3 which helps brighten and strengthen weakened skin. Used on its own or in combination with Dark Circle Defense, this bad boy can help reduce the appearance of tired, puffy and dark under eyes.
For men who need some extra help in the undereye department, the brand offers Anti-Fatigue Eye Patches. Acting like small under-eye masks, they are to be applied for 10 to 15 minutes for that hydrated, smooth effect. Made with caffeine, hyaluronic acid, and Centella Asiatica among other things, these patches can be a lifesaver when you have to deal with the aftereffects of staring at the screen too long or having a drink or two more than planned while out on the town.
How often should I use Lumin?
If you want to see fast improvement in the general appearance of your skin, Lumin Skin recommends applying their products consistently, which is to say every day, and according to the instructions indicated on the product card. Of course, Lumin Skin products can be used alone or combined with other products for optimized results.
