Q: Would I use this after or before moisturizer?

submitted by Jay - 6 years ago
  • A: This goes before a moisturizer.

    submitted byskay - 6 years ago
  • A: Apply to face and neck after cleansing. For best results, follow with your chosen Nordic-C [Valo] moisturizer. Short-cut tip you can also put a drop in your favorite Nordic-C [Valo] moisturizer.

Q: does this ball up under makeup

submitted by HELLO - 5 years ago
  • A: Not at all! Absorbs really nicely and is a good base before makeup.

Q: does this product help with dark spots on face?

Q: What is the percentage of vitamin C in this product? Other companies list the percentage on their product and you do not list it. The question was asked once already and was not answered.

submitted by Kerry - 2 years ago
  • A: Vitamin C is used in cosmetic formulations due to its skin caring benefits, such as skin brightening properties. However, the usage of Vitamin C or ascorbic acid as such in finished cosmetic products is impractical since ascorbic acid is very unstable. The compound degrades itself when in contact with light and/or air. This means that after a certain amount of time no or very little Vitamin C is present in the cosmetic product, no matter how high content the product originally contained. To overcome this instability problem, different kinds of ascorbic acid derivatives can be used. Lumene ValoGlow Boost Essence contains ascorbyl glucoside, which is derived from vitamin C and glucose. The amount of Vitamin C derivatives in Lumene products is a trade secret. However, we firmly believe that by using stable vitamin C derivatives in our products instead of any amounts of unstable ascorbic acid, we can offer efficient, safe skin care products that do brighten the skin when used regularly.

Q: Is it safe for breast feeding mom?

submitted by KC - 2 years ago
  • A: Hello, our Glow Boost Essence serum is 90% naturally derived and 100% vegan, and is considered safe for nursing mothers. However, the product does contain a mild citrus fragrance, and some prefer 100% fragrance free products while breast feeding. Our Arctic Hydra Care [Arktis] Moisture & Rich Oleo Serum is a great alternative for those, as it's a 100% fragrance free serum, designed for sensitive skin.

Q: Exactly how are you supposed to apply Valo Nordic - C Glow Boost from Lumene Finland?

submitted by MaryF - 3 years ago

Q: Is this unscented? Also, is the consistency more like a serum, or an oil?

submitted by emmy - 4 years ago

A holy grail face product! I have sensitive skin, but this serum does not cause any breakouts for me. It’s hydrating enough and my skin feels plump after applying. Doesn’t leave my face feeling all sticky icky either. Not to mention, it smells amazing. 10/10 recommend!

Sensitive Skin Beware

C - 3 months ago
I have oily, sensitive acne-prone skin. I felt like this serum was making my skin brighter at first and I really enjoyed the light citrus scent and heavy-weight packaging but by the time I bought a full-sized bottle after trying out the mini size this was irritating my skin a lot. Skin felt a tingly, a little like it was burning when using this and got redder. Second star is for nice packaging. May work on other people's skin but did not work for mine.

I have oily, acne prone skin and a lot of products leave my skin feeling greasy. This serum spreads nicely and absorbs quickly without feeling sticky. The glass bottle is nice, dropper works great, and the light citrus scent is pleasant and doesn’t linger. I will continue to repurchase.

TD - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
Wanted to love this since it had amazing reviews but I cannot. This irritates my skin and made it feel like a sunburn- made my skin more pink and irritated than brightened. Did not feel moisturized at all. was also way too sticky and made my moisturizer pill up on top of it. Didn’t have that smooth oil like texture I’m used to with my other vitamin c. Two stars for the beautiful packaging and I love that it is glass and recyclable.

Meg - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
This serum is the holy grail of skin care. I’m 32 and have oily, acne prone skin. I used this a few years ago and loved it but couldn’t find it again after I ran out. I saw it on the Target website to order and have been using it for three days. After having an awful acne breakout for the last few weeks, my skin is almost completely clear. The texture of my skin is smoother and more hydrated, and I swear my skin is almost glowing. Never going without this serum again.

Amazing! I was looking for a good budget friendly (but also good ingredients) vitamin c serum to supplement in between the current vitamin c one I use which is a dermatologist brand. This serum exceeded my expectations, I will be back to purchase more & will be exploring the entire brand. I’m so glad Target sells this brand and product as I would highly recommend this serum to others. I have sensitive skin and has not caused any breakouts & I’ve been using it for over a month. Dries quickly with no stinky feeling, visible results.

I am so impressed with this serum. I have managed a medical aesthetic office and used the best of the best products in the past, along with having done treatments.. This product after a week of using it- morning and night after washing my face and using my toner, has made a difference. I can see my skin appearing brighter and more even toned. I’d highly recommend this product!
