The Best Korean Vitamin C Serum for Acne Scars that Really Works
by Wendy Kim on Oct 31, 2018
The magic ingredient, vitamin CThroughout my years of suffering from acne, as well as my research on fathat work, I quickly discovered one of the best ingredients for fighting against PIH is that of Vit C. No, I don’t mean the type you take as a pill, I mean the type you apply to your skin!
Okay… but how does that get rid of acne scars?What makes the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop Serum so ideal for those who suffer from dark spots is the healing and exfoliating properties of Vitamin C. When applied topically, this powerful antioxidant works to gently sloth off dead skin cells while promoting collagen production within the dermis. Thus, resulting in new skin cell generation!That means, fresh new skin!
What are the product claims?Although this is a vitamin C serum, it’s not strictly one, as it does contain other ingredients that work in conjunction to accelerate the benefits for us. With that in mind, here are the claims of the Klairs vitamin serum.• Regenerates skin• Transforms the skin's appearance• Maintains• Non-irritating• Fades acne scars in the forms of PIH• Lightly Exfoliates• Anti-ageing• pH 3.5 + 1.0Plus, it has some awesome features!• Cruelty-free• Vegan-friendly• Ethanol-free• Paraben-free• Silicon-free• Steroid -free• No artificial colours or fragrances
For the Skincare obsessive, an ingredient breakdownWhen analyzed via cosDNA (an ingredient analyzing website), the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop serum came in as quite safe for the skin! You can view the ingredient list table below to see for yourself.
Sounds pretty good, but what’s it like?When it comes to the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop serum, it comes in a lovely transparent bottle, which may seem weird for a vitamin C product. Serums with the active ingredient Ascorbic Acid (vit c) generally are stored in a tinted bottle to preserve the ingredients, but the Klairs serum is stabilized to be effectively kept safe in a clear bottle.
As it does not contain a high percentage of vitamin C, it’s okay!Aside from the bottle, the product is dispensed via a twist off cap with an eyedropper, which personally is one of my favourite types of packaging for liquid products. This is because it allows for complete control over the amount your dispense onto your skin, limiting wasted product.
How does it feel?This is where things get interesting! Like most serums and liquids, you would assume it would feel watery, hydrating, or tacky. To my surprise, it doesn’t at all!
It feels like a dry oil!The serum glides smoothly over the skin, feeling just like a dry oil texture. On that note, I did notice that the product feels as if it is “getting warm” once it has been applied. This sensation only last several seconds. Apparently, this is normal for the product.If applied after physically exfoliating the skin, I did notice is can tingle or sting a bit, however, this is normal for any ascorbic acid product. Aside from texture and feeling, the serum absorbs fairly quickly into the skin, generally within half a minute which is pretty good.
Do it fade acne scars?Of course, we all want to know the answer to our biggest question… does it work?!
YES! It really works!I tested this product on my skin, using it every night for exactly one month. It was tested on my skin during an acne breakout which was quite inflamed where PIH was beginning to develop. After 1 month of continual use, it was able to almost completely get rid of acne scars fast!
My skin has never looked this good after an acne break out!The bonus, I had no irritation from the products! Meaning, no redness, no itching, no hives!
