Is this serum worth the hype? Let’s find out.
This scentless watery serum has a slightly oily feel to it. It does absorb quickly despite the oiliness and it doesn’t leave any residue or tackiness and doesn’t cause other skincare and makeup to pill. The packaging is nothing extraordinary, you get the usual plastic bottle with a pipette but what surprised me is there is nothing to protect this serum from deteriorating from light exposure. Still, it’s claimed that the formulation is stabilized but we shall see over time.
As for results, I have not experienced any breakouts, my skin looks smoother but the biggest difference that I realized was the boost in skin’s radiance and healthiness. Personally, I also noticed it helped to hydrate my skin as I don’t feel the need to use multiple layers of toners and facial oils anymore.
How do I compare this to my favourite Instytutum Anti-Wrinkle Brightening Serum* (reviewed here)? It’s apples and oranges to me. Yes, they are both Vitamin C serums but the similarity ends there, both in ingredient lists, textures, what they are for, results and finally, the price range. Instytutum is meant for more mature skin or at least those who are in their 30s and are concerned with signs of ageing while Klairs is for all ages and is for anyone who is concerned with dullness. I didn’t notice any reduction in my fine lines with Klairs so if that is one of your concerns then I highly recommend trying Instytutum.
Will, I repurchase Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop*? 100% yes if it doesn’t go rancid after a month. Despite it doesn’t combat my signs of ageing, this antioxidants rich serum did hydrate and brighten my skin and has a firm spot in my routine.
Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop is retailing for US$23.00 (currently on sale for USD19.55)and available for purchase on WishTrend.com.
