Vitabrid C12 Dual Mask: Age-Defying & Firming


Dual Mask: Age-Defying & Firming

I had taken a break from sheet masks for a while but last month I realized I was missing them. The first one I decided to use is the Vitabrid C¹²® Dual Mask and I’m so glad I did. Even though there was a Canyon Ranch Spa on the cruise ship that I was recently on, I decided to make my own spa time and Vitabrid C¹²® Dual Mask was happy to come along in my vanity case.

One of the great things about a sheet mask is that they can go with you anywhere. They take up a minimal amount of room and when you are done that’s one less item to shlep back home.

I’m so glad that I brought this mask since the climate changes that I was involved in took a little havoc on my skin. I started in wintery Michigan, flew to Rio where the climate was hot and steamy, ended up in Spain where the weather was almost fall like. My skin welcomed the pampering I received when using Vitabrid C¹²® Dual Mask.

You all know what a sheet mask looks like and how to use it and this one is no different. But what makes the Vitabrid C¹²® mask unique is the special proprietary complex of Vitabrid CG, a way to encapsulate and stabilize Vitamin C in its active form. Since Vitamin C is an instable substance it breaks down and loses potency when exposed to air, water, and changes in temperature. Being confined to a mask and using it just one time makes the ingredients more potent.

I’m already a huge fan of Vitabrid C¹²® loving their FACE Brightening Powder (my hero product of 2017) so having the opportunity to try this mask was exciting for me. Vitabrid C¹²® is K-beauty at its finest. The mask is loaded with the serum, I mean loaded. It’s so juicy yet it doesn’t slide off my face.

The Vitabrid C¹²® Dual Mask purports to firm and age-defy. As someone who’s noticed skin sagging as I’ve aged it was indeed promising to me. It contains Vitabrid® and Peptibrid™ to deliver active vitamin C and peptides for softer, smoother skin. So how did it work?

Ingredient list of Vitabrid C12 Dual Mask

Pretty great as a matter of fact. Not only did I take one on my trip but I had one more at home and used it upon my return so that I could get some of its brightening and antioxidant effects back that the airplane sucked out of my face. After removing the mask from the packaging and smoothing it out on your face, give yourself 10 to 20 minutes to enjoy it. You can lay down or move around, it doesn’t slide off my face at all.

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.

Vitabrid C¹² harnesses the power of vitamin C in its collection of beauty treatments. Through proprietary biotechnology, vitamin C is mixed with stabilizing zinc, a combination designed to capture the nutrient’s potency and allow it to penetrate the skin and scalp over the course of 12 hours.

The Vitabrid C¹² Dual Mask is a Barney’s exclusive. One mask is $8 or take advantage of the set of 5 for $35 (free shipping). This is a mask that you’ll want to use often.  I’m certainly ready for more Vitabrid goodness–  Marcia



Got spots? Check out Vitabrid C12 Spot Powder and Spot Essence!

Spots. Zits. Blemishes. Acne. Whatever you call them, they aren’t pleasant. What if I told you that you can have completely clear skin in two weeks? It’s true…and I tested this on my very hormonal teenager. The Vitabrid C12 SPOT Powder mixed with the SPOT Essence is a major knock out punch to any spots you aren’t happy to have on your skin.
 Vitabrid C¹² SPOT Powder ($25) is an acne treatment powder sold only at Barney’s. Vitamin C is an incredible ingredient, but it is notoriously difficult because it’s tough to keep stable. By putting it in a powder form, Vitabrid came up with a genius way of stabilizing the Vitamin C, keeping the efficacy intact. The Vitamin C acts as an anti-inflammatory antioxidant and an antibacterial, getting rid of acne quickly and reducing red areas.  So it not only helps decongest pores, it also helps skin recover and assists pigmentation so the area returns to normal.
 The powder needs to be mixed with a liquid for application and the perfect vehicle is the Spot Essence ($32). This is a light fluid that helps control oil production and mixed with the Spot Powder it becomes an amazing acne treatment.
  • The amount of essence used depends on the size of the area and of course the amount of powder depends on this as well.
  • For an idea, a dime sized amount of the SPOT powder should be used if you need to treat the entire face when mixed with enough of the Essence.
  • For a true spot treatment, shake a few times into the Essence, mix and dab it on the troubled area. You do not need to rub it in too much.
 The mixture of Spot Powder and Spot Essence works on the skin for 12 straight hours, specifically breaking down keratin plugs (that hardened sebum that clogs pores) and doing the job of antibiotics without the side effects. This dramatically reduces the possibility of scarring from acne. I have a teenager and she loves this stuff – it’s saved her skin which was becoming a disaster, especially around her hair-line.
  • Safely solves acne problems with no side effects
  • Stabilized active Vitamin C powder delivered deep into the skin for 12 continuous hours
  • Eliminates acne bacteria and inflammation
  • Cleanses keratin plugs
  • Aids in pigmentation and damaged skin recovery

I am really impressed with this acne spot treatment – the The Vitabrid C12 SPOT Powder mixed with the SPOT Essence is most definitely the one-two punch you need to knock any spot off your skin! – Lisa

Your hair isn’t going to grow overnight, it goes through a cycle just like your eyebrows, eyelashes, and nails so it takes time to see a difference. When I started using an eyelash growth product and an eyebrow growth one I didn’t see a difference for 6 weeks but once it started I was glad I stuck with it. I feel the same about Vitabrid C¹², time is its friend and my hair’s friend. I now need to convince my husband that this is a product for him since he’s always complaining about his male pattern baldness and its progression.
