The Cult Favorite Vitamin C Serum That Faded My Brown Spots in 10 Days

True K-beauty fans know and love the Klairs Vitamin C Serum. Why? It’s a powerful and potent treatment that attacks brown spots and acne scars with 5 percent vitamin C. Read on to discover exactly how thrilled Jacqueline was when the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum faded her sun spots faster than any other product that claimed to do so…

The skin issue Jacqueline wanted to improve:
Since childhood, I’ve developed sun spots easily. I think it’s genetic. My mother develops brown sun spots easily, too. I also love to go to the beach and bake myself in the sun. Despite putting on SPF, I don’t get tanned evenly, and spots on my cheekbones can develop quickly (usually after just one hour of sun exposure at the beach!).
In the past few years, I’ve tried all kinds of spot treatments, but it takes usually months to see the fading effects. I’ve always been on the lookout for a product that can show results within two weeks so that I don’t have to rely on concealers for the following months.
Why she chose to give the Klairs Vitamin C Serum a try:
I’ve heard of vitamin C being a powerful ingredient to treat sun damage and I tried a few products in the past. Some products worked for fine lines, but nothing really stood out as being a fast remedy to spots. Although my sun spots are not super prominent, my skin goals have always been to have an even, flawless skin tone without foundation.
How the Klairs vitamin C serum compares to other products she’s tried for brown spots:
I’ve tried many different sun spot serums and this one is by far the most effective serum I’ve ever used. I like the texture—it’s not like the normal watery texture of other vitamin C serums; it’s rich yet light. It serves as another layer to my moisturizer and I can use it for all seasons. Not only did I see my spots fade within a week, but the dullness that comes after sun exposure was quickly reverted back to a dewy, glowy look. I’m on my fourth bottle already.

What happened to her skin the first time she tried it:
The first time I applied the serum, my skin stung a little. I felt a slight rise in the surface temperature of my skin for about 10 minutes and then it started reverting back to normal.
What happened after a few more days of usage:

After three days of application, my skin started to get used to the vitamin C and I didn’t feel the sting anymore. It turned into a very mild serum.

How Jacqueline uses the Klairs serum in her routine:

Immediately after I double cleanse and apply the Missha First Treatment Intensive Moist essence, I apply two to three drops of the serum onto my cheeks (which are the parts that get the most sun exposure and get really dry). The serum feels like a light oil in the beginning and then it gets quickly absorbed into the skin after seconds of application. My skin feels warm and plumped up when I gently massage the serum into the skin. After the serum absorbs, I put on the Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream and sunscreen.

Jacqueline’s Bottom Line:

My skin has such an even tone and a glow to it since I’ve been using the Klairs vitamin C serum. It’s very potent but at the same time milder than other vitamin C serums.

I would recommend it to people like me who are super meticulous about flawless, even skin tone and don’t like the sting of most other acid-based products. I especially recommend to people who have normal to dry skin, as this serum is also super moisturizing.
