Spring is coming my friends! March is here, and can’t wait for all these longer and brighter days. I wasn’t so active with my blog lately, meaning the past two months. I was suffering from SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder for the first time in my life but as it was something temporary, I am feeling better now. So, let’s hope the sun is here to stay cause I am more than ready to start blogging again. I have so many new products to share with you, especially from Althea Korea so today’s products come from a favorite brand, ”dear Klairs”: Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop and Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask.
A few months ago I tried my first two products from Klairs, the Rich Moist Soothing Serum and the Rich Moist Soothing Cream. I was very pleased with them and that for I wanted to try more products from this brand. Three weeks ago I switched the serum with the Vitamin drop and so far I am loving it.
It contains pure vitamin C extract which lifts pigmentation and brightens the skin naturally from within. Contains also 5% Ascorbic acid which gently exfoliates away dead skin cells to even out the skin and Centella Asiatica extract, rich in amino and fatty acids for anti-aging properties.
The serum comes in a clear glass bottle with holographic labels and personally, I find this kind of packaging very attractive to the eyes. It has a dispenser also, an eyedropper, which is very practical. It has a strong smell, like a mix of citrus and metal, but disappears quickly. Its texture is thick and oily but it absorbs quickly without leaving any gloss.
How I use it
As all the skincare products that contain Vitamin C it is suggested to be used in the evening to avoid any reaction to the sunlight. So I use it in the evening after the toner, just in case. But if you wish to, you can wear it in the morning as well, never forget your sunscreen though. I use a few drops only and gently massage my face for absorption. As I have mentioned several times, I have dry skin so that oily consistency it’s much appreciated. I continue with my soothing or my evening cream.
Vitamin C might cause irritation to sensitive skin. But this product doesn’t cause any irritation on my face. I feel my skin hydrated and smooth and I could say brighter day by day. I have used Vitamin C in the past so I was aware that it’s natural to feel a heat on my face and I didn’t worry at all because it’s temporary.
Which is the best way to have the benefits of Vitamin C? Use it together with Vitamin E and one of the best products I have tried so far is the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask. The mask contains of course Vitamin E which is a powerful antioxidant that serves to protect the skin against external factors like pollution and sun damage. Contains also Niacinamide which helps to brighten the skin and Adenosine, this amazing wrinkle-fighting ingredient.
The mask comes in a clear jar, (can’t say whether it’s plastic or glass or both) and has the same holographic labels as the Vitamic C drop. Its scent is very nice, fresh and soft, a scent that would be welcomed by everyone. It is a mix of citrus, lavender and lemon.
The most amazing and cool fact about the mask is its consistency. This mask has ”memory shape texture”, and that means you can scoop it out with the spatula as much as you want but every time it will return to its original shape, the one you have seen once you opened the jar.
How I use it
I apply the mask at the last step of my evening routine but I need first to break down the thick texture. When it comes into contact with the skin the mask transforms into a liquid essence. As I want to have the benefits of a sleeping mask I wait a few minutes and then I gently massage the leftover mask for complete absorption.
The Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask works miracle for my dry and dehydrated skin. It rejuvenates and moisturizes my skin and I wake up with bouncy and hydrated complexion. Combined with the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop I have the best and faster results of Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
