Vitamin C benefits are super popular on a global level, not only for health, but also for skincare! Vitamin C within the past 3 years blew up in North America as a must have item in everyone’s skincare collection. However not everyone has skin that can tolerate high concentrates of vitamin C.
So today I will be review a Vitamin C product that is suitable for every skin type, even those with sensitive skin. It is the brand NEW Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop Serum!
The Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop Serum claims to:
+ “Wake up” the skin
+ Contains 5% Ascorbic Acid AKA Vitamin C
+ Skin Transforming
+ Is a multi-solution for skin concerns
That sure does make this serum sound like the perfect product to include in anyone’s skincare routine!
But does it really hold up to what it claims and provide good vitamin c benefits?
OKAY! Let me be honest right away… I LOVE THE PACKAGING!
The serum is in a transparent glass bottle which looks lovely, however many people may be concerned that this will make the serum go bad quickly. However since this serum contains a low amount of vitamin c, Klairs claims that when stores correctly in a dark place, the serum will maintain itself. I have been storing this serum in my bathroom cabinet for almost 2 months and have not experienced and expiring or fermenting.
Other then the glass, the serum is dispensed with an eyedropper similar to the OST C 21.5 serum.
The label has a pearl multi-dimensional effect to it which is absolutely stunning. However it makes it a bit difficult to photograph. In person, the design of the bottle looks lovely on your vanity and it a real treat to look at and use.
The box it comes in has a very similar design, featuring a pearl multi-dimensional flat bottle design on the front. It is a bit hard to read, but it is so lovely that it is not an issue for me.
When I first saw the ingredients list to this new serum I was a bit taken a back by how long the list was. I am more a fan of simple ingredients as it is easier for me to pin point 1 ingredient if I have a reaction. However when taking a closer look, you will notice almost all the ingredients are natural plant extracts.
The Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop Serum contains the following ingredients:
Water, Propylen Glycol, Ascorbic Acid(5%, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Centella Asiatica Extract, Citrus Junos Fruit Extract, Illicium Verum(Anise) Fruit Extract, Citrus Paradisi(Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Nelumbium Speciosum Flower Extract, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Polysorbate 60, Brassica Oleracea Italica (Broccoli) Extract, Chaenomeles Sinensis Fruit Extract, Orange Oil Brazil, Sodium Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Disodium EDTA, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Camellia Sinensis Callus Culture Extract, Larix Europaea Wood Extract, Chrysanthellum Indicum Extract, Rheum Palmatum Root Extract, Asarum Sieboldi Root Extract, Quercus Mongolia Leaf Extract, Persicaria Hydropiper Extract, Corydalis Turtschaninovii Root Extract, Coptis Chinensis Root Extract, Magnolia Obovata Bark Extract, Lysine HCL, Proline, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Acetyl Methionine, Theanine, Lecithin, Acetyl Glutamine,SH-Olgopeptide-1, SH-Olgopeptide-2, SH-Polypeptide-1, SH-Polypeptide-9, SH-Polypeptide-11, Bacillus/Soybean/Folic Acid Ferment Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Caprylyl Glycol, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol
First thing that was not familiar to me was Propylen Glycol, since this was the second ingredient before vitamin c (ascorbic acid) I decided to check it out on cosdna, where it checked in as non-irritating and non-comedogenic! At the lower end of the ingredients list you will also notice there are a few different peptides or also know as chains of amino acids, which are commonly used in anti-aging products for smoothing and adding firmness to the skin, for a more moist and plump look.
TEXTURE & APPLICATION
I honestly was very surprised when I first felt the texture of the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop Serum. It was not what I was expecting at all. It had a more thick consistency that felt very oil based to me. When I applied it to my face using only a few drops, maybe 4 for my entire face, it felt as if there was a thick coat of heavy oil over my skin. I immediately felt this product would break me out. But after waiting 1 minute, it surprisingly absorbed nicely into my skin, leaving no oily texture or any feeling at all! Which was excellent of course. One thing I loved about this texture though was how easily it spread over the face. Unlike other vitamin c serums that tend to absorb very quickly, the Klairs freshly juiced vitamin serum provides you enough time to evenly apply the serum all over the skin before it absorbs. Which I ended up liking quite a bit. It also gave a slight moisturized feel, which I can easily assume is from all the natural plant oils in the serum.
I have been using the serum for over 1 month now and closely documented my results over a 1 month time span. I felt this serum did improve my skins quality overall. It helped my skin to heal from dry patches, and fresh acne scars and other areas of redness. However it did not provide fast results like other highly concentrated vitamin c serums, which is something I did not expect which this serums since it only contains 5% instead of 20%.
I really like it! I think it is really suitable for those who are sensitive to high concentrates of vitamin C but who still want to enjoy the benefits of vitamin C skincare. I find this serum to be lovely for overall skin healing and repairing. making it great for gradual skin tone perfecting, texture improving and as a wonderful anti-aging anti-oxidant serum.
I highly recommend this to anyone who is in their late teens up to early 30’s. This serum is more a healing anti-oxidant serum. So it is suitable for younger skin that doesn’t yet need heavy anti-aging products just yet. This is a serum that would be a perfect holy grail anti-aging serum for younger age groups. Gently working to even out skin tone, prevent and reduce fine lines and overall create lovely skin!
