Amena Bean Luminous Peptide Serum

Today I'm reviewing another fantastic Amena Bean product.  This little bottle has completely changed my skin care regime. I literally only use 3 things on my face at night now. Cetaphil face wash, Amena Bean serum and Aveeno daily moisturizer. Massive changes for a product junkie like me.

This is just amazingness in a bottle.

Amena Bean describes this product as:

Luminous Peptide Serum

Dry, Sensitive, Oily, Normal, Combination

Available Sizes: 1 oz, 16 oz

This serum uses Bearberry, Daisy, Licorice Leaf Extracts and CoQ10 & natural skin brighteners (no hydroquinone) to enhance the appearance of the skin.


Apply to cleansed skin before moisturizer or sun protection.


Clinical test with Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 resulted in a 44% reduction of deep wrinkles, a 37% reduction of main wrinkle density, and a 16% increase in lifting effect.
Clinical tests with Bellis Perennis (Daisy) Flower Extract resulted in a reduction of melanin formation and anti-oxidative activity, providing significant lightening effects. Results of a comparative study conducted with Belides (Daisy) Flower Extract and Arbutin (another trade mark lightener that has been a popular ingredient), used at equivalent polyphenol concentrations, showed that (Daisy) Flower Extract was twice as active as Arbutin.

Key Ingredients

Red Maine Algae(Ahnfelita Conccina Extract) – increases skin hydration significantly with enzymes and mineral naturally found in this algae extract, which is indigenous to the Hawaiian Islands. Sodium Hyaluronate – holds up to a thousand times its weight in moisture retention properties. Bearberry Extract (Uva Ursi Extract) Licorice Extract and Daisy Extract- ingredients to even out skin tone. Co Q10, Vitamins C & E, and Green Tea Extract – that fight free radicals that damage skin causing anti aging effects. Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 (Argireline) - is a topical botox, relaxing the muscles that cause deep wrinkles around the forehead.

Since this had such major promises (skin lightening AND topical botox results!!) I have been using this for a month and a half to see the results myself before coming to any conclusions.

I have to say, it definitely does work in the lightening department and toning the overall appearance of my skin. As I've previously mentioned, I have some sunspots on my forehead and hyperpigmentation on my cheeks that are basically the bane of my skin issues and drive me crazy. I've used this serum religiously twice a day and those areas are practically gone.

As far as the deep wrinkle relief...luckily I don't have any deep wrinkles YET so I can't really testify to that. I will say though, that I have noticed a major improvement in the suppleness and overall skintone. My face just has a glowiness without any makeup on it now that it hasn't for a while. I attribute some of that to the Amena Bean glycolic moisture cream that I love so much, but when used in conjunction with this serum I saw major results.

Overall, I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking to reverse sun damage, brighten their skin tone, reduce minimal signs of aging and improve the overall appearance of their skin. Amena Bean has impressed me again!
