We are always hearing about K Beauty and the virtues of it. Little did I realize that I’ve been using some K Beauty products all along. I knew there was a reason why VITABRID C¹² was so unique in my skincare world. The Vitabrid C¹² items I’m showing you today are ones I’ve used in the past and I’m happy to have them back in my life. My review of the FACE Brightening 12H Vitamin C powder can be seen here and my review of the Dual Mask, Deep Hydrating & Moisture Retention Mask is here. Now though the magic is to combine these two for even better results. Voila – a “Vitamin C Energy Mask”.samples, affiliate links
On January 2, 2018 I named Vitabrid C12s FACE Brightening Powder ($60; barneys.com) as my hero skincare product of 2017. As an older blogger I wasn’t brought up with sunscreens, they just weren’t around. My mother bought me products like the old Coppertone thinking that would protect me from the sun. Rather it attracted the sun and I was a little freckled child. Those freckles haven’t disappeared and many have turned into sunspots. Vitabrid C12’s FACE Brightening Powder has helped lighten my skin and made it look clearer. While my sunspots aren’t gone they are lighter and aren’t worse which is what counts most.
With Vitabrid C12’s FACE Brightening Powder it’s like using a new product each time. You shake a little of the powder out of the container and mix it fresh with serum or moisturizer. It’s never compromised by sunlight since the container is opaque and you only take out what you need. Ideally it’s to be used twice a day. The powder releases its power over 12 hours. (A reminder: always use sunscreen with a Vitamin C product on your face.)
Now I’ve learned to put the Face Brightening Powder into the serum of the Vitabrid Dual Sheet Mask ($8 for one mask, $35 for a set of 5) and I have a “Vitamin C Energy Mask”. Double the ingredients for a dual effect of both brightening and anti-aging.
The Dual Sheet Mask is meant to give your face deep hydration and moisture retention. It’s a mask that is absolutely loaded with a serum of Vitamin C and Peptides. Even though there’s so much serum in the mask package it doesn’t slide off your face, it adheres without sliding off once you’ve adjusted it. When you are finished just remove the mask and massage the serum onto your face with your fingertips. Don’t wash it off. You want the terrific serum to continue adding the feel of collagen, vitamin C, and moisture to your complexion. Products apply easily over it and your face will feel softer for days.
Use the mask as you would any sheet mask leaving it on for 10 – 20 minutes (I use it for the full 20). Simply dab a few small dashes of the FACE Brightening Powder over your entire face with your fingers right after you take the mask off. The leftover product from the mask allows you to mix the powder in evenly. Vitabrid C¹² recommends using all the serum from the mask but I save what doesn’t come out with the mask so that I can use it with the powder.
The powder releases a proprietary form of active, stabilized Vitamin C into the skin over the course of 12 hours for a firmer, healthier, and more luminous complexion. Skin is left looking and feeling revitalized, while the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is diminished. There’s no texture, no color or odor—it dissolves instantly once mixed in with your mask.
Vitabrid C12’s FACE Brightening Powder allows you to “boost” the essence or serum already found on your favorite sheet mask by mixing it with a proprietary form of active Vitamin C from Seoul. Neither product have a fragrance which is a major plus for me.
As a mask aficionado this combination makes my masking adventure higher and higher. It’s like sitting on the top of the mountain contemplating how much happier I am with my skin’s radiance and hydration. Try it, you’ll like it! — Marcia
