Eureka Moment: Vitamin C For the Skin Does Help!

Remember last month when I visited the Laneige Pop-Up store at SM Mall of Asia?   I love it that I get to talk to fellow bloggers who are Laneige user and of course, talk to the people behind Laneige and get tips from them on which products are the best!  (I seriously believe they know better because they get to try the products first!)

I am happy with our long-afternoon talk with Laneige's Brand person Ms. Mela Fortes, big reason is that, she was very vocal with the products that work for her and those that do not (Even if it is her own brand!).  She honestly shares to me her personal experiences on the products I am intrigued with and that is one major reason why I believe her when she gushed on Laneige's newest skincare product called Clear-C Advanced Effector.

I had to pick one to try!

Laneige Clear-C Advanced Effector contains 150ml worth of Vitamin booster with 92.5% super berry extracts that have clarifying effects, giving you a brighter complexion.

Malpighia Emarginata (Acerola) Fruit Extract, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Propanediol, Alcohol, Niacinamide, Butylene Glycol, Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Extract, Melia Azadirachta Extract, Prunus Mume Fruit Extract, Nasturtium Officinale Extract, Nelumbium Speciosum Flower Extract, Glutathione, Glycerin, Lecithin, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Sodium Magnesium Silicate, Adenosine, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Water, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance

This is a water-type formula that works just like most water-based essence/toner.  The product contains 92.5% super berry extracts rich in Vitamin C.  Which explains why I see instant "brightening" results even on FIRST USE!  (No joke!  I can really tell how much better my skin look on the first night I used it!)

The product is housed in a glass bottle with pump packaging making it extremely easy to control the amount of product to be dispensed. 

Upon purchase, you also get a box of dual-textured cotton for morning and night care!  One side is the "wave pattern" side which is meant to be used for morning as this can help even out the skin's surface.  The gentle and "thicker" side, on the other hand,  is meant to be used at night to keep skin moisturized at night.  How?  By patting the product onto the skin for better absorption.

After 3 full weeks of use, I get really better-looking skin!  I don't know about you but I can see and feel the result in person!  Photos may be not as obvious but I like how bright my skin look and feel!  It doesn't hurt that the product smells extremely wonderful so I don't have issues using it day and night since I almost NEVER want to skip this step!  

At this very moment, I was able to transform 2 of my friends to insert this in their skincare regimen too!  But of course, don't take my word for it, maybe, visit a Laneige Counter near you and ask for samples (I was able to grab 1 sample, lucky me!) In which was the best reason why I was sold to purchase full sized bottle!  The sample was enough for me to see and feel the result!

But still, to each their own, this may work for me well but maybe, not for you!  So please do a patch test if you have sensitive skin and stop usage if signs of irritations occur.

Laneige Clear-C Advanced Effector is priced locally at Php1,650.00 available in ALL Laneige counters near you.

How do you feel about adding an extra step of skincare in your regimen?
Will you give Laneige Clear-C Advanced Effector a try after reading this?

  1. I'm really confused is an effector is a serum too?

    1. Hi Ann, no it's not, this is actually an "essence", well in our country we tend to just call everything we put before moisturizer as "serum" but in truth, this is an essence and it is just an "additional' product to be used before serum :D Imagine Water with loads of Vitamin C and other benefits :D

  2. the product sounds very promising.... do i used it after toner? Thanks

  3. Wow! Another product worth trying out. I will be checking on this.....

  4. I wonder if u use sunblock over this when u wear it at daytime. I have this thought that Vitamin C makes the skin more vulnerable to sun rays. Do you?

    1. Well, this is not technically Vitamin C as in Ascorbic Acid type of C. It is vitamin C from ingredients like berries and other natural ingredients, the Vitamin C there is more subtle and gentle :D Of course, you must use sunblock pa din no matter what! :D

  5. can i use this after toner ? wht type of toner do u use ?

    1. this is already a "toner" :D this gives brightening effect type of toner

  6. so u use this as ur toner ? :)


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
