Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Charging Serum Review

Freshly Juiced Vitamin Charging Serum Review (after one year of use)

One year ago Wishtrend launched new brightening and antioxidant-rich daily treatment that can work even for people with sensitive skin – Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Charging Serum ($35.)

The formula boasts 10% 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, a gentler and more stable form of Vitamin C, in concentration sufficient to provide both brightening and antioxidant benefits without the common inconveniences of pure L-Ascorbic Acid. Although the latter tends to be highly effective, it’s notoriously difficult to stabilize and could be irritating for people with sensitive skin. While 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid is not nearly as potent as pure LAA, it’s a lot less finicky to deal with and can be used daily even by Vitamin C beginners.

Freshly Juiced Vitamin Charging Serum also contains Niacinamide high up on the ingredient list, to further enhance the brightening and skin-smoothing benefits. Other notable ingredients include calming Madecassoside to soothe any potential irritations and help repair the skin barrier.

Klairs is great about not adding any unnecessary fragrances to their products, so the formula has no discernible smell, making it a headache-friendly choice for scent-sensitive people. You may notice a whiff of something citrusy now and then, but it’s all natural and comes from a brightening botanical blend.

I expected the consistency to be milky, but was surprised to see it’s actually a clear gel. The gel is runny and watery, and has some nice slip so the product can spread on the skin more easily, without tugging or dragging. Freshly Juiced Vitamin Charging Serum feels pleasantly hydrating, and instantly leaves my skin looking plump and moisturized. It absorbs mostly, but not completely, so my face always feels like there’s a thin layer on top – it’s not sticky, but definitely feels like something’s there.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Butylene Glycol, Niacinamide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Glycerin, Methylpropanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel extract, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Sodium Polyacryloyldimethyl Taurate, Panthenol, Pentylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Tromethamine, Adenosine, Madecassoside, Sodium Phytate, Beta-Glucan, Tocopherol, Linolenic Acid, Xanthan Gum, Carbomer.

Because the main active ingredient in this serum is very gentle, it can take a while to notice the benefits. My skin looked visibly smoother, firmer, and brighter after about 4-5 weeks of daily use, and the dark spots lightened only after 3 months of use. A product with L-AA would have given me the same results in half the time, but pure Vitamin C has a lot more irritation potential and it’s always a fine line between happy skin and very angry skin when using it with other products in my routine, namely retinoids. But if you don’t mind waiting a little longer, I think something like Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Charging Serum with a weaker form of Vitamin C is the way to go. The cons outweigh the pros, the only downside might be that you’d have to go through multiple bottles to see the same result as by using a single bottle of a much stronger product, and the costs could add up quickly.
