When I was in Riley Rose, I was at the Dear, Klairs section. To be honest, I wasn’t planning to buy Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask. I was only at that section to buy their Vitamin C serum but I remember watching a Soko Glam video on how Vitamin E and Vitamin C are a perfect pair. Remembering all that, I was like eh, why not so I grabbed the mask and tossed it in my shopping basket. But I think I made a great choice on buying this mask cuz boiiii, it does work well with Vitamin C.
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 E Mask (90mL) is an overnight mask that firms, tightens, and hydrates the skin. It also enhances the effects of Vitamin C products. It also contains Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) which helps brighten the skin and Adenosine which fights wrinkle and helps promote collagen production. It has a soft, custard-like consistency and Dear, Klairs calls it “shape memory cream” since it will revert back to its original shape in the jar. It’s not cream but when you apply it on your skin, it transforms into a gel consistency. When I first got it, I kept on jiggling the jar for 5 minutes straight since the mask was so bouncy LOL. It has a slight clean and floral scent but it’s really subtle. Oh, the mask comes with a small spatula which is great for those who doesn’t want to stick their finger into the mask.
Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Niacinamide, Sodium Hyaluronate, Carrageenan, Gellan Gum, Betaine, Algin, Mannan, Ceramide NP, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Chlorphenesin, Arginine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Centella Asiatica Extract, Rubus Fruticosus (Blackberry) Fruit Extract, Salicornia Herbacea Extract, Phragmites Communis Extract, Adenosine, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil
Price: I bought this in my Riley Rose Haul for $27 which isn’t that bad for a Vitamin E mask. Most Vitamin E mask runs up to $40 to $70.
Performance: So I pair this with my Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum since Vitamin E helps boost the benefits and effects of Vitamin C. After I massage the Vitamin C serum on my face, I give the serum a chance to absorb in my face before I apply the Vitamin E mask. Since the mask has a really custard-like consistency, it is super spreadable so a tiny amount could cover a large portion of the face. It’s also buildable so you could add additional layers of the mask to make it a thick overnight mask. Even though it’s light, It leaves a super stick, glossy layer on my skin so I make sure the mask is the last step to my skincare routine. I made a mistake of wearing this in the morning and let’s just say my face was a mess LOL. But I could definitely feel the moisturizing effect on my skin. My face is baby smooth when I wake up in the morning. It’s also made my skin brighter.
Conclusion: I’m glad that I bought this Vitamin E mask to help fasten the effects of Vitamin C. I do notice my brown spots getting lighter especially on my hair line where I get most of my pimples since I have oily T-Zone and oily scalp which means pimple overload LOL. I have a bad habit of picking them when I’m bored and it leaves a very apparent brown spots which is no bueno. I’m curious to pair this with the COSRX Vitamin C since that serum has over 20% of Vitamin C. I’m hoping it will lighten my brown spots faster.
