Skincare Acids: Pretty Much Everything Your Brain Can Handle About AHA, BHA, & Vitamin C

Now that you’ve got your hydration down and your skin barrier healthy, you’re ready for that next level of glow: skincare acids.

About the product

What Is It:


If a drop a day will keep the skin doctor away, then Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop is your prescription for brighter skin tone, smaller looking pores, and a smoother appearance. Formulated with 5% Ascorbic Acid (pure Vitamin C), the Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop is an anti-aging hero that also helps fade existing acne scars and dark spots as it prevents new ones from occurring. Unlike other pure Vitamin C serums and oils, this innovative formula packed with antioxidants is non-irritating even for sensitive skin and boasts a longer shelf life.


Our insight:


This lightweight serum is great for layering into your skincare routine. Make sure to store it in a cool, dry place to slow down oxidation, which is normal for ascorbic acid products. For more on vitamin C and its benefits, check out our primer on everything you need to know about acids, including vitamin C.


How to use:


1. Dispense 1 to 2 drops of serum directly on the face or onto the palm of hands and apply onto cleansed, toned face.
2. Follow up with moisturizer.
3. If you have extremely sensitive skin, blend a drop of serum into your moisturizer.

A great vitamin c serum for starters! It's mild and effective. Since it has a low percentage of Vitamin C, it didn't irritate my skin. The process was slow, but it helped with fading my hyperpigmentation! I always restock on this product! Love love love it!
