So recently, I bought one of the most popular Klairs product, the Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum. This product got a lot of recognition from Soko Glam, Buzzfeed, Refinery 29, Vogue, etc. It also won awards such as Soko Glam Best of Beauty Award for 2015 and 2017 so I wanted to see what the hype was all about. But I also just wanted to try a Vitamin C serum in general since I heard a lot of great benefits from using Vitamin C such as fading brown spots. I have a lot of brown spots around my chin and cheek area from hormonal acne. At least, I think it’s hormonal acne because that’s where most of them pop up, around the chin and cheek. So I wanted to fade my brown spots since some of mine are permanent. I mean I did buy a Vitamin C few years back because I wanted to pair it with my dermarolller. But sadly, both that Vitamin C and dermaroller are gathering dust in my closet LOL. However, I am planning to micro needle soon that’s why I bought a new Vitamin C. I bought COSRX Triple Lightning Liquid which contains a whopping 20.5% of Vitamin C but it was coming through mail and I couldn’t wait so I bought the Klairs one also.
Dear, Klairs Background: Dear, Klairs was first created back in 2009 with a goal of producing gentle skincare products for sensitive skin. They were previously known as Klairs but added Dears to their brand name as they wanted to create a personal relationship with their customers. They try to differentiate themselves from other beauty brands by placing importance on customers’ feedbacks.
Dear, Klairs wants their customers to know that their products are hand-created based on their requests. They believe simple is the best way to go so based on their slogan “Simple but enough”, they created a brand that isn’t overwhelmed with numerous products. Their products are universal, they are suited for every skin type. What’s great about Dear, Klairs is that their products don’t contain paraben, alcohol, artificial colors, and fragrance. They’re vegan but most importantly, they are cruelty-free!

Product Details: Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum (35mL0 is a clear serum that contains 5% of Vitamin C and aims to help fade acne scars and brown spots, prevent from future pigmentation from happening, reduce fine lines, and help brighten the skin. The serum comes with a dropper in a glass bottle. There is no fragrance so it’s perfect for those who are sensitive to smell.

Price: I bought it for $23 at Riley Rose but you can find it for cheaper in other beauty sites. However, I think it’s a fair price for a vitamin C serum. Most great Vitamin C serums run up to $30 to $100+.
Performance: I started using a few days ago and honestly, I can’t see a difference in my skin. I didn’t mix my Vitamin C in my moisturizer because I know my skin isn’t the sensitive type and it’s able to handle it. I put two drops on my forehead, two on my right cheek, two on my left cheek, etc. I massaged the oil on my face and place my clean hands on my face to warm my face. I don’t know why but it feels good LOL. It is a little sticky on the face but that is expected since it is a oil. Since it contains 5%, I think it will take a while for me to see noticeable results. So I will be continuing to use it for at least a month and give you guys an updated review.
Conclusion: I think it’s a great product to buy especially since most Vitamin C serums has an expensive price tag. Hopefully, my brown spots will fade and call this my HG product. But I think the COSRX Vitamin C serum might have faster results since they contain 20.5% compared to Klair’s which contains only 5%. But like I said, I’ll try using Klairs Vitamin C consistency for one month and update you guys on results. And I’ll also do a comparison post on the two products with other Vitamin C serums from other Korean/American brands.
