For your daytime routine, harness the power of a range of vitamin-infused products to get that glow!
Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop serum contains vitamins C and E and can be easily added into any morning routine after toner, which can be used daily for most skin types but those with sensitive skin can try adding this serum once every two days to avoid sensitivity.
By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water is an exfoliant primarily formulated with mandelic acid but also contains vitamin A to help unclog pores, improve skin tone and complexion. Incorporate this mild chemical exfoliant into your morning routine 2-3 times a week for a glowing complexion and for those with sensitive skin be sure to start off slowly as with any other exfoliant.
I’M FROM Vitamin Tree Water Gel is a lightweight gel moisturizer which can be used as a daily moisturizer to lock in moisture, whilst also brightening the skin’s complexion. Made from vitamin tree water and Hippophae rhamnoides extracted from sea buckthorn, rich in vitamins A, C and E, this moisturizer will nourish and hydrate your skin and also improve skin complexion.
Another vitamin containing daily moisturizer is By Wishtrend Vitamin 75 Maximizing Cream, and is also suitable for daily use as an effective and nourishing moisturizer. This cream is enriched with vitamin E from vitamin tree water for intense hydration.

Vitamin-infused products for nighttime rejuvenation:
As for your nighttime routine, incorporating these vitamin-rich products into your skincare routine can help address a variety of skincare concerns and maximize their benefits by letting them sink into your skin overnight.
By Wishtrend Vitamin A-mazing Bakuchiol Night Cream is the perfect night cream for those who want the effects of retinol, with a more gentle approach. It contains bakuchiol, a plant-derived ingredient which presents the same effects as vitamin A by helping to stimulate collagen production, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and overall improving skin texture.
By Wishtrend Pure Vitamin C 21.5% Serum contains a high amount of vitamin C which may not be suitable for more sensitive skin types, however, for those with normal skin this could be a great evening serum by allowing the vitamin C to work overnight to repair and protect the skin from environmental stressors.
*please try to avoid using potent levels of vitamin c and retinoids together to avoid skin irritation*
I’M FROM Ginseng Eye Cream contains ginseng extract which is naturally high in antioxidants. This eye cream, whilst it doesn’t directly contain vitamin A, ginseng extract has shown similar benefits to vitamin A as it provides the delicate eye area with nourishment whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Use this eye cream in the evening to allow it to work its magic overnight to restore radiance around the eyes.
Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask is the perfect overnight moisturizer mask as it contains vitamin E and niacinamide to provide intense overnight moisture to the skin as well as brightening and improving the appearance of wrinkles. It can be used every night as the final step to your skincare routine, or if you have dry skin you can try a small amount as your daily moisturizer.
