For years I've only used Prescriptives skin care line,
because it's what works for me.
I've tried countless times to be open minded to skin care treatments found at the drug store,
but it seemed that every time I was left disappointed.
Cheap products either left my skin feeling greasy and heavy,
or didn't hydrate enough.
All seemed to be jam-packed with fragrances that were too harsh on my skin.
Last year, I encountered a face wash by Lumene, and was pretty pleased.
Later, I saw a Lumene serum on sale and tried that as well.
I was using it with my Prescriptives moisturizer,
until I found another Lumene product on sale:
A hydrating night cream.
I won't lie, I've been using this moisturizer in morning and at night. Along with the Lumene serum, my skin has been looking and feeling great.
(It is best to keep your skin care consistent- I noticed when using Lumene serum with Prescriptives moisturizer, my skin wasn't at it's fullest potential- It was still good, just not amazing. When I switched to the Lumene moisturizer in addition to the Lumene serum, it had been as if I were using Prescriptives products all along.)
nothing can replace my Prescriptives-
But at $80 per serum and $50 per moisturizer,
Lumene is a great affordable, alternative option.
(I believe the Lumene serum was $5 [on sale] and the moisturizer was only $14)
Of course, all products are different for different people.
What's important is how it feels on your skin, and how it wears throughout the day.
I have dry and pretty sensitive skin.
I like how Lumene keeps me hydrated all day without looking or feeling heavy.

Lumene is definitely the most comparable skin care line to luxury lines I've found by far.
Lumene products are definitely products I'll continue using
when I don't feel like burning $130+ on my skin care regimen!
Here's a page of ingredients found on the Lumene website-
Just keep in mind that if your skin feels great,what you're using is great. If it doesn't feel at its best, know that there's probably a product out there for you that you just haven't encountered yet. Lumene has definitely proven to me that you don't need to splurge in order to find the right skin care regimen!(and no, I do not work for Lumene, ha!)
