Lumene is a brand of beauty products created by Lumene Group. Lumene Group is a Finnish company that is based in Kauklahti, Espoo, Finland and has been operating since 1948. The actual Lumene brand was launched in 1970 and was specifically designed for women living in the Northern areas of the world. The mission of the Lumene Group is to develop high end cosmetic and hygiene products that combine natural ingredients with modern technology to enrich the lives of its customers.

The Lumene brand consists of various skin cleansers, toners, and anti-aging products. There is even a special section dedicated to products for men. We are most interested in what they offer for treating wrinkles and fine lines, so lets take a closer look. Lumene offers quite a few wrinkle treatments that span many of the website’s categories. You can find wrinkle treatments in the Express Beauty category as well as the Targeted Care and Extra Moisturizing categories. The official Lumene website is very easy to use and provides a description of each product that includes the effects, technology, test results, and application.

Product Details

The various wrinkle fighters available from Lumene contain some very unusual ingredients. A quick glance at a few of them will show that they are made with buckthorn oil, Finnish plant sterols, arctic berry seed oil, and other natural ingredients. There is some information available on the Lumene website about the various berries and sea buckthorn and what they are supposed to do. Natural ingredients such as these do tend to be rich in vitamins and anti-oxidants, even if they don’t really represent the latest in wrinkle-fighting technology.

Though the full list of ingredients isn’t listed on the official website, we found the ingredients for the Lumene Time Freeze Targeted Wrinkle Treatment on the CVS/Pharmacy website. They are as follows;

Aqua (Water); Diethylhexyl Succinate; Glycerin; Ethoxydiglycol; Cyclopentasiloxane; Ethylhexyl Palmitate; Cetearyl Alcohol; Dicetyl Phosphate; Ceteth-10 Phosphate; Steareth-21; PVP; Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate; Silica; Phenoxyethanol; Butylene Glycol; Steareth-2; Menthyl Lactate; Methylparaben; Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer; Hydrolyzed Casein; Sodium Hydroxide; Peat Extract; Disodium EDTA; Silica Dimethyl Silylate; Padina Pavonica Extract; Paraffin; Ethylparaben; Butylparaben; Carbomer; Propylparaben; Isobutylparaben; Polysorbate-20; Sodium Hyaluronate; Ceratonia Nymphaea Alba Flower Extract; Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4; Atelocollagen; Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil; CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide); CI 77491 (Iron Oxides); Mica; Benzyl Benzoate; Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde; Butylphenyl Methylpropional; Alpha Methyl Ionone; Parfum (Fragrance.)

The Good

  • Reasonably priced. The Lumene Time Freeze Targeted Wrinkle Treatment only costs $19.99.
  • Available at major chain drug stores such as CVS/Pharmacy.
  • Website lets you contact the manufacturer for more information.

The Bad

  • The official Lumene website doesn’t list all of the ingredients for its products.
  • There are no free samples available and we can’t find a money-back guarantee on the official website.
  • Lumene products contain many combinations of berries and other natural ingredients that don’t seem to come with much clinical proof of efficacy.
  • There are no testimonials available on the official website at this time.
  • Product seems to contain artificial fragrances and synthetic preservatives, which have both been linked to irritation in sensitive skin.

The Bottom Line

Lumene is very reasonably priced for a line of beauty products from Europe. This enables customers to try various products and see if they do what they claim to do. The problem with Lumene products is that they don’t seem to contain any known wrinkle fighters. They are loaded with fatty acids, vitamins, and anti-oxidants but there isn’t enough research available to decide whether these will help reduce wrinkles. Also, probably because they are formulated for the mainstream market, they contain synthetic fragrances and prevervatives that can irritate the skin of some users.


** Our Top Skin Care Choice **

Rejuval Skin Bottle

Top Anti-Aging Cream for 2014: Rejuval Skin

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Rejuval Skin is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. Rejuval Skin contains the advanced scientifically proven ingredient Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the scientific studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Rejuval Skin is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Rejuval Skin Go



Vivexin

(Optional- For Enhanced Results): Vivexin

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go

    To Whom It May Concern:

    I have been using the Lumene Sensitive Line and I find it great!!! I have extremely sensitive skln and I have not had any problems with this product. I do wish the stores would carry more products and smaller sample sizes- to see if we like a new product. But- otherwise- I am staying with this product– keep up the great work– Donna

    I used the Lumene Deep Repairing Serum and saw a difference within minutes! My skin has improved 100% after the first use. Have to admit I didn’t expect it to work. I will always use Lumene everyone should try it..

    I received a sample of Lumene and I went right out and purchased it. I have been using the product for six months now and love it. There are samples at CVS Drugstore and some have coupons. Give it a try, you will not regret it.
