Works like Magic!! – [Klairs] Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask
This has a very unique pudding like texture but turns easily into a cream when spread. When I heard that this Vitamin E mask from @dear_klairs helps in boosting the effect of Vitamin C serum, I had to incorporate it into my regime ASAP. It absorbs well and has a very faint tackiness to it. Although this can be used both at day and night time, I mainly use this in my night time skin routine. Using the Klair’s Vitamin E mask together with a Vitamin C serum definitely has brought a change in my skin. My skin feels brighter and supple. I initially had a sample version of this product and I loved it so much so I got the full size of the product. After incorporating this product into my skincare it has definitely improved my overall skin texture. – Tamrakar Sa******
