Lumene divides its skincare essentials amongst 5 different lines, each devoted to a different need or time in a woman's skin as she ages. I was asked to sample Artic Aqua 2 in 1 Skin-Perfecting Moisture-Booster from their Sensitive Touch line.
It is suggesting that the additional surge of moisture and hyaluronic acid act also acts a primer of sorts under makeup.
Here is how it is described:
Artic Aqua 2 in 1 Skin Perfecting Moisture-Booster

I am a definitely a fan of primers. At their best, they add moisture, blur imperfections and help makeup look fresh and last longer. I will always use a serum and sometimes use a primer, depending on what the day has in store.
Artic Aqua acts somewhere between the two. Those with dry skin are going to love how quickly it absorbs and plumps, allowing for smoother application and a dewier finish.
I found myself popping it into my makeup bag, and applying it under my eyes and on my forehead in the afternoon for a quick surge of moisture. It has a cool, almost watery consistency, but it doesn't disturb my makeup or attract flakes from my mascara. I can absolutely see this being a summer staple.
It's an interesting hybrid product. Something I didn't know I needed...until I did.
