I’m back with yet another first impression. This time I’m talking about the Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop Serum from Klairs, which is indeed a vitamin C product! This is my first ever Klairs product and I’ve been very excited to try it. As usual with any product I purchase, I’ve heard great things about this one aswell. Shock! I very seldom buy products on a whim (but it has happened). This serum has been stored in my fridge for a little while now and tonight I thought it was high time I gave it a sniff!

So I’ve only tried the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop Serum once and I’m not sure what I think of it. Of course most skin care products take some time to show their true colours, but in my opinion some more than others, and I think this product will be one of them. Sure, I might notice a small, immediate difference or two, but I suspect that a potential bigger change will take more than a couple of weeks to show up (of course, this is only a theory). This product promises to do a lot of different things, so we’ve got several different prosesses going on here.
I know from experience that many products provide a “quick fix” when it comes to temporary whitening/brightening, but reducing fine lines and wrinkles can take some time (and I haven’t really got any wrinkles). Also, finding out if this serum protects my skin (as it also claims) in any way, might take some time aswell. Other than that I can report that it stung a teeny bit upon application, but nothing really worth mentioning. I’ve heard that this is normal when introducing vitamin C to your skin care regimen, and that it will subside 🙂
I’d also like to mention that I was a lot more concerned about whitening when I purchased the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop Serum. Now I don’t feel like I need that effect as much, but as I said; this serum claims to do quite a few other things, so I will be putting it to the test anyway. Hopefully i can benefit from at least some “protection” (which I assume to be enviromental protection) and prevention. I’ve heard great things about vitamin C and it’s supposed to be good for the skin in general, so I’m still looking forward to giving this serum a fair chance, although I think it might be better suited for people with the “right” skin concerns 🙂
As with any product I try, I’ll be back with a full review after putting this serum to the test for a couple of weeks. So stay tuned!
