Guess what premier do we have today? Klairs just launched their new product! It's called Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask. The name of this product might remind you of Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C serum and it's not a coincidence! This mix of Vitamin E, Niacinamide and Adenosine boost the effectiveness of Vitamin C. 

Couple words about brand
Klairs is a Korean brand that specifies in cruelty-free products. Their main motto is "simple but enough" - it means that Klairs won't offer us couple skincare series - all products are fitting every skin type. All the products are suitable for vegetarians and the brand is working to make all products suitable for vegans.

The most important thing for me here is a spatula - there's a spatula and that's like a half of success. You know how much I like Klairs - the design reminds me a lot of Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum. There's no double lid in case you wonder. 

Skin Type
All skin types

Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Niacinamide, Sodium Hyaluronate, Arrageenan, Gellan Gum, Betaine, Algin, Mannan, Ceramide NP, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Chlorphenesin, Arginine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Centella Asiatica Extract, Rubus Fruticosus (Blackberry) Fruit Extract, Salicornia Herbacea Extract, Phragmites Communis Extract, Adenosine, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil

Water - a source of minerals and moisture. It’s the most basic element of the product. Glycerin - a humectant and a delicate preservative, but also a very powerful moisturizer. It helps other substances to get beneath the skin but it also regenerates the skin. Some people say it might be comedogenic, but in the comedogenic rating, this ingredient is placed very low. Butylene Glycol - a humectant and preservative, it helps other ingredients to get beneath the skin but it’s also a moisturizer. It can be comedogenic. Tocopheryl Acetate - a preservative and antioxidant. It’s a form of Vitamin E, it’s a good moisturizer and nourishing ingredient that helps with wrinkles. Niacinamide - one of the forms of Vitamin B3, a humectant and an antioxidant. It helps with collagen production but it’s usually used in cosmetics due to its brightening and whitening properties. It works on acne-prone skin very well because of its antiseptic properties. It’s a good moisturizer that can balance sebum production and help with lipid barrier. Sodium Hyaluronate - a humectant, an antioxidant and strong moisturizer that increases lipid barrier and skin elasticity. It can help with wrinkles and pigmentation. It’s a healing ingredient so it can help with post-acne scars, inflammation and speed up the healing process. Arrageenan - a vegan substitute for gelatin. It is used in cosmetics for its thickening properties. In this case, I think that Klairs was thinking about Carrageenan while writing Arrageenan on the label. Gellan Gum - an emulsifier and thickener. Betaine - a humectant with anti-static properties. It’s a strong moisturizer that makes skin and hair soft, it also makes wrinkles more smooth. Algin - a humectant and binding agent. Unfortunately, it can be comedogenic. Mannan - a film former. Ceramide NP - a good moisturiser. PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil - an emulsifier and cleansing agent. It should be avoided during the pregnancy, it’s not the safest ingredient. Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer - a thickener, it might be comedogenic. Chlorphenesin - a preservative, it shouldn’t be used by kids. Arginine - an amino acid and an antioxidant that gives the smell to the product but it has positive meaning for our skin that’s why it is used in many anti-aging products. Ethylhexylglycerin - a humectant and a preservative, it gives moisture to the skin. Centella Asiatica Extract - also known as Gotu Kola. A source of vitamins A, C and E. It’s an antioxidant with antiseptic and antibacterial properties. It can be used as a treatment for different problems like dark circles under eyes, acne, wrinkles, redness or even as an eczema treatment. It even works on cellulitis, sunburns and it can be used to remove scars that are why it is used in products for acne-prone skin. During the pregnancy, you have to use only small concentrations of this ingredient. Rubus Fruticosus (Blackberry) Fruit Extract - an extract full in vitamins such as Vitamin C and E. It has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that’s why it can be used for acne-prone skin as well as for eczema. It’s also a powerful antioxidant so it’ll help with wrinkles, pigmentation, skin brightening and the loss of moisture. Salicornia Herbacea Extract - an antioxidant and good moisturizer. It has a good effect on the dull skin with pigmentation - Salicornia Herbacea has brightening properties. Phragmites Communis Extract - also called Lu Gen and Reed Rhizome, it’s an extract used in traditional medicine. It’s a source of vitamin C which is a good ingredient to make your skin brighten. Adenosine - an anti-aging ingredient that helps with collagen production. It doesn’t only make your skin smooth, but it can actually help with pigmentation and skin brightening. It’s also an antioxidant, but you shouldn’t mix it with caffeine because it makes this substance less effective. You should be careful with this substance during the pregnancy. Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil - it’s a fragrance ingredient with antiseptic properties. Some people might have allergic reactions to this ingredient. Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil - an oil with antiseptic and antibacterial properties. It’s a powerful ingredient that’s why it shouldn’t be used during the pregnancy. Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil - an oil with antibacterial properties. It is very effective on acne-prone skin, it doesn’t only kill the bacteria but it also speeds up the healing process. It shouldn’t be used during the pregnancy. Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil - a fragrance ingredient and an antioxidant with antibacterial properties. It makes skin brighter, but it can also help a little bit with wrinkles. It shouldn’t be used during the pregnancy. Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil - a fragrance ingredient and an antioxidant. It makes skin brighter, it shouldn’t be used during the pregnancy. Cananga Odorata Flower Oil - also known as Ylang Ylang oil, it’s a fragrance ingredient that works well on acne-prone skin because it moderates sebum production.

Smell & Texture
The texture reminds me of a pudding - a coconut pudding but also it reminds me of greek yoghurt. It's a quite thick formula but it's easy to spread the product on the skin. I can easily smell the lavender and lemon in this product as well as some herbs, the smell is nice, somehow it reminds me of a drugstore. What's different - the mask will always return to the first form - you can make a big hole in the middle of the jar and it'll quickly fill the whole. 

How does it work for me?
Before I start the review: this product is recommended to use with Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum, the review of this product you can find here. Personally, I was using this mask with different Vitamin C serum. I've decided to use this product as a sleeping mask even if you can easily use it instead of a face cream - I've tried that too and it worked, I feel like it might be even better for acne-prone skin to use it instead a moisturizer, if your skin is sensitive then I recommend to use it as a normal mask. The main ingredients are Vitamin E, Adenosine and Niacinamide, but you can spot Sodium Hyaluronate and Glycerin in this product too. The product should help with skin moisture but it is also promoted as a product that improves wrinkles and prevents ageing - and I have to admit that it's a nice combination of ingredients and I can believe in these claims. I'm happy to see Centella Asiatica in this product because it always helps me with acne and pigmentation. I've tried this mask in a quite hard moment of my month - pre-period era. I feel like I'm not the only person who has this problem - for me,  period = hormonal acne time. I'm always expecting the worst but I had maybe one or two pimples this time and the only thing I've changed was adding this mask to my routine. But acne is not the main subject here. This mask is all about moisture and I admit I can see the difference. Very small amount of the mask is enough to cover the whole face and neck - this mask really works on the neck area, it doesn't make it oily but moist and that's a plus. Same with the skin on my face but I've got one problem - I feel like after the night my skin is more oily than after using a Klairs Rich Moist Cream so for me this mask is a good option for 2-3 uses per week but not for a daily use. I can admit that my skin is softer and I feel like I'll use this sleeping pack instead of my favourite sleeping pack from Laneige - I almost can't smell both of them and that's a positive thing for me coz if the smell is too strong them I can't sleep. Overall, I feel very positive about this mask even if I can spot a PEG here, the ingredients aren't the worse and that's what I like about Klairs. 

Additional Information
This product is vegetarian-friendly - unfortunately, I wasn't able to find the information if this product is vegan-friendly.

Sum up
It's a nice sleeping mask which you can use instead of a moisturizer. My first impression of this product was positive and with every use, I'm falling in love more and more. I feel like this packaging will last about a year because I need a small amount to cover my whole face and get enough moisture - it's an ideal product for winter.
