LUMEDIA – my personal review
“THE BEST SOLUTION FOR SUPER-STUBBORN AGE SPOTS”
This was what I read when I strolled past a cosmetics counter in Tangs Store Singapore few months ago. And for someone who had been troubled over the brown spots and freckles that were becoming more prominent and obvious, I stopped at the counter to find out more about the product.
So what is this product that promises to ‘erase’ those dark hyperpigmented spots on my face? It is Lumedia, a new ‘skin lightener’ for serious hyperpigmented age spots, melasma, and freckles in a short period of time.
I was almost convinced that those small brown spots close to my eye area will be gone in that ‘short few weeks’ but I was still hesitant as the small black bottle of concentrated serum (30ml) did come with a price tag of close to S$200 ( I forgot the actual price ). But after reading the product pamphlet on how the three powerful skin lighteners can dramatically reduce melanin concentrations (melanin causes dark spots) and inhibit tyrosinase activity (an enzyme that ultimately controls melanin production), I decided to give it a try.
Lumedia is easy to use. After cleansing and toning your face, brush and dab the serum gently on those targeted ‘spotty’ or hyperpigmented areas using the small cottony tip and leave it to dry. After that, you can apply your usual moisturizer over the entire face. The serum has a light texture that dries quickly on the face in a couple of minutes. In order to see faster results, I followed the instructions conscientiously. I wasn’t going to see my investment go down the tube. I was eager to see some results especially on a stubborn hyperpigmented spot on the right side of my face.
After using the serum for a month, twice a day, morning and night, I was a little disappointed that those small brown spots were still as prominent as before, though I did noticed that a lighter and brighter skin tone on the entire area. As for the stubborn spot on the right side of my face, closer to the jawline, I could see very slight improvements though I was hoping that it would ‘disappear’! The 30ml could probably last for 6 weeks and if you have more pigmented spots, it may finish faster.
According to the product facts, Lumedia can be used on hands, neck or any part of the body with stubborn hyperpigmented dark spots. As a natural health advocate, I have always been taught that those age spots on the hands are signs of a liver cleansing. So what do I think of Lumedia? Personally, I believe that all beauty and skin care products work differently for every person since we don’t share the same hormones and genetics. If you can afford $90,(Get it for $87 at Strawberrynet.com) - Go for it! You just never know how it can work for you. But if $90 is too much to spend on skincare for you, don’t worry about it. For me, I’m trying out another new Whitening Essence recommended by a friend. As usual, I would report the outcomes after I finish in a couple of months’ time. If the Whitening Essence doesn’t work, I may try another bottle of Lumedia.
If you have tried other whitening or lightening serum or cream that works for you, drop me a comment here – I would love to hear
