Travel Size Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C Day Cream
A fresh and moisturizing formula combines antioxidants from Wild Arctic Cloudberry and Vitamin C, which is highly effective due to a special encapsulation technology. The technology enables the Vitamin C to be released steadily and deeper into the skin making the benefits of Vitamin C even more effective on your skin. In combination the Cloudberry and Vitamin C make your skin look radiant and bright. They also protect it against harmful external effects, such as sunlight, that causes premature aging. This Vitamin C Cream is a perfect addition to a brightening daily regimen.

One of my kids and I favorite lips balms. They love all the great good enough to eat flavors. I love how hydrated it leaves our lips and knowing the SPF30 is protecting our lips from sun damage.
