May Day: welcome to May birthday month and meet Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C day and night creme

Hello Gorgeous!
 Woo hoo! It's May!
You know what that means? More birthday celebrations than you can shake a stick at! (Where does that phrase even come from?)

My birthday is May 13th and I love celebrating it. Several of my close friends have birthdays in May, and then a few other close aquaintances have birthdays in May too. It's like one long party.

Add into that mix all of the holidays and special occasions that happen in May, such as;
May Day
Cinco de Mayo
Mother's Day
Memorial Day
and of course, my birthday plus graduations and the Billboard Music Awards show.

Phew! That's a lot of parties!
Now, meet Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C day and night creme: just what late night party pei skin needs!

 I love the Lumene brand of skincare.

One Foot In The Wild And One In The Laboratory

It starts in the wild, with the resilient powers of Arctic ingredients. Using scientific expertise from our pharmaceutical roots, we introduce untamed nature to modern technology. With our heritage and knowledge, our mission is simple: Lumene was created to combine the best of nature with the best of science to illuminate natural beauty in all.

 I've used my samples and the cremes have an amazing fresh, clean scent. The texture is rich and luxurious and the cremes are soothing to the skin. I'm liking them so far, but need to wait and see how they do in the hot, dry, Arizona weather. My skin is a bit dry, and I wear a lot of sunscreen while I'm out running and biking, sometimes swimming. So far, I'm liking the day and night and feel like I get good moisture from them.

And just in case you are curious about what May Day is, here's some info for you. Enjoy!

May Day on May 1 is an ancient Northern Hemisphere spring festival and usually a public holiday;[1] it is also a traditional spring holiday in many cultures. Dances, singing, and cake are usually part of the celebrations that the day includes.
In the late 19th Century, May Day was chosen as the date for International Workers' Day by the Socialists and Communists of the Second International to commemorate the Haymarket affair in Chicago. In those countries that celebrate International Workers' Day, the day may also be referred to as "May Day" but it is a different celebration from the traditional May Day.
