Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop Review

Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop is one of my wishlist for a very very very long time. However, the price is quite expensive for me, that is why I decided to wait and read more about Vitamin C serum before I decided to incorporate them in my skincare routine.

Product Name: Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop
Product Brand: Klairs
Product Type: Serum
Size: 35 mL
Price: RM90++
Where to get? I got this from nattacosme
Country of origin: Korea

How to use?
This is based on nattacosme's website.

For Normal / Combination to Oily Skin:
After cleansing, apply an amount of about half the dropper to the entire face area. Gently massage into the entire face using the palms and body heat to work into the skin.

For Sensitive Skin:
 After cleansing, prep the skin with toner and apply about 3-4 droplets of the Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop evenly onto the skin. For extra sensitive skin, try mixing a few drops into preferred serum or lotion until the skin is used to the product.

How I use this serum?
Okay first, about my skin. For your reference, I have dry skin. I nak cari product yang boleh kurangkan dullness, kulit kusam and for glowing.

I pakai waktu malam, during my night routine:
1. Double cleanse
2. Vitamin C serum - Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop
3. Hydrator (toner/essence/serum)
4. Moisturizer
5. Sleeping Mask

The reason why I apply this serum right after cleanse and before toner is because this Vitamin C is an actives. I ikut the rules:
1. Cleanse (oil-based, water-based)
2. Actives (Vitamin C, BHA, AHA)
3. Hydrator (toner/essence/serum)
4. Moisturizer

That is why, I apply this after cleanse and before toner. However, ada yang cakap this product is not really an actives sebab dia punya % of LAA is very low (5% je) and doesn't really considered as actives. But I prefer to apply this before hydrators sebab rasa it works better like this.

Some tips from the website:

1) Vitamin C products are best used during the evenings rather than during the mornings.

2) Follow up with a sunscreen when using during the day. - Yes, sunscreen wajib. Apa guna kita beriya riya nak buat kulit jadi brighter tapi tak pakai sunscreen. Tak ada sun protection, lepas tu kulit jadi kusam jugak. Macam buat perkara yang sia sia. Sebab tu sunscreen penting, okay?

3) If it is your first time using a vitamin C product, a minor tingling may be experienced. This is a normal process due to the difference of pH levels in the skin and the vitamin C, and is absolutely safe to use. - Rasa macam geli geli, mencucuk cucuk sikit tu. It's normal kalau first time sebab maybe kulit tak biasa. Tapi kalau rasa takut, tak selesa, try cari product yang lain pulak.

4) A slight warming sensation may be felt upon application. This is a natural phenomena that occurs as the pure vitamin absorbs into the skin.

5) As the skin can easily be irritated, it is not recommended to apply this serum after exfoliators (AHA, BHA products included) have been used.

1) Recommended to store it in a cool and dry place away from direct sun light. - I simpan dekat dlam peti sebab takut dia oxidised

2) For the best effect of vitamin C, please use it within 2-3months after opening.

Ingredient analysis
I've always love Klairs ingredients, suitable for sensitive skin. In this product, they have Centella Asiatica Extract. Centella is a good antioxidant, and really soothing. Good for soothing, healing wounds. Kalau parut parut jerawat tu, memang bagus. One of the famous and ingredients.

The packaging:
It is in a 35 mL transparent streamlined packaging with a large dropper bottle. Looks like a glass packaging, but it is actually not. Hmmm Vitamin C serum with transparent packaging, might cause fast oxidation. Vitamin C serum is better be in a dark bottle to prevent fast oxidation. I've been using this for almost two months, still okay. Hopefully tak oxidised cepat.

(Oxidation: Vitamin C serum tu bertukar warna jadi dark yellow or orange-ish. Tak bahaya kalau guna, tapi mungkin dah tak berkesan untuk kulit)

The colour/consistency/texture: 
It's like a colourless oil-based serum. Quite oily-sticky masa pakai tapi dia absorb cepat so tak rasa melekit dah. Rasa neutral bila pakai. No matte or sticky feeling. Rasa biasa.

My experience with Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop

The main reason why I got this serum is because I feel like I need a Vitamin C serum with low % since I've tried high % before and it doesn't work for me. Kalau first time or you're a Vitamin C virgin, better start with low % or other derivatives first, supaya kulit tak terkejut. Tapi ada certain kulit yang okay, tahap tolerance dia tinggi, no problem.

I pernah tweet some ingredients yang bagus untuk kulit. One of them is Vitamin C.

So for me, I feel like I need a vitamin C serum for brightening since I have dull skin, rasa kusam, so I rasa nak try this Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop since it has only 5% LAA and Klairs punya product normally sesuai for sensitive skin.

Again, for your reference
Skin type: Dry
Skin concern: Brightening, blemishes

As I mentioned before, I use this during my night routine je. Lepas cuci muka, I terus apply 3-4 drops of this serum. Masa first time guna, ada bit tingling feeling, rasa panas panas tapi tak pedih, and dia hilang kejap je, which is normal, lagi lagi kulit tak biasa dengan Vitamin C. Tapi kalau dah pakai banyak kali and still rasa pedih and tak selesa, better cari other low % and other derivatives, yang sesuai dengan your skin, okay?

It's quite sticky, melekit, a bit oily, sometimes bau macam besi berkarat (I don't know why) and I leave it for 15-20 minutes before continue with my other routine (toner/essence etc). It absorbs quite fast, after 1-2 minutes tu dah absorb dah, and all the sticky feeling tu semua hilang. So it doesn't matter what your skin type is, it will absorbs quickly into your skin.

I've been using this for 6 weeks already, and I can see the improvement on my skin. Brightening and even skin tone. In terms of blemishes or acne scars, I'm not so sure but from what I read, 5% is not enough to reduce dark acne scars. Better cari yang higher % (20% ke) to reduce your acne scars.

I am so happy Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop. Really works for my skin, brighter and even skin tone. Exactly just what my skin needed. The glowww.

Who will like this?
People who have dull and uneven skin, and wants to brighten up their skin.

Who will not like this?
People who have veryyyy sensitive skin or a vitamin C virgin, you may want to try other Vitamin C first. Or, people who wants a vitamin C serum to reduce their acne scars (I think kalau minor, okay je. Tapi kalau yang very dark and banyak, macam kena cari yang higher %).

Would I repurchase?

That's all, thanks for reading!
