The more I think about it, the more it seems true: A lot of good things start with the letter C – carrot, cheese, cakes, cherries, candy, caramel, chips, corn, chili, calamari, chamomile, coffee, change, cats, Christmas, career… I could go on but I’ll save the silly jokes for next time 😛 . Above all, the most important C that you need in your life is VITAMIN C!

I’ve been a genuine fan of Kiehl’s since Charles introduced it to me 3 years ago. Most (if not all) of his bath and skincare products are from Kiehl’s. Curious to find out if his favorite brand would work on me too, I did a quick skin analysis at the store and got a few samples to try at home. My first love was the Ultra Facial Oil-Free cleanser. It was perfect for my skin type and didn’t leave my skin feeling tight after cleansing (if your skin feels taut after cleansing, it is likely that the product you’re using is too dry for your skin).

Have you taken your vitamins today?

 My birthday last month reminded me that maybe it was time to look for a skincare product for mature skin. Every woman wants to maintain firm, youthful skin. I’ll admit to getting fillers for my laugh lines last year, but I was never a fan of needles so I’m hesitant to go back. Excessive sun exposure, free radicals and aging naturally slows down collagen synthesis which causes skin to sag and wrinkle.

Taking Vitamin C tablets is great for overall health and beneficial for your hair and skin. It helps create scar tissue and ligaments, and it helps your skin repair itself. Lack of vitamins will eventually  slow down hair growth, cause thinning hair and make your hair look dull and easily broken.

Taming this medium-length hair is far more manageable than the Rapunzel hair I once had

For skin concerns specifically , the most effective way to absorb Vitamin C is to apply it directly on the skin. I’ve just discovered that Kiehl’s formulated a gentle serum that contains the highest level of Vitamin C to offer benefits to the skin’s appearance without irritation. Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate contains a powerful and potent level of pure, stabilized 10.5% Vitamin C! That’s great news for your skin!

Bear in mind that you are still recommended to wear sunscreen on your face (yes, even if you love to tan), especially if you spend a lot of time under the sun. Even with the help of Vitamin C, the sun’s harmful UV rays can cause undesirable damage to the skin.

Feel the power of C on your skin! This potent treatment serum formulated with a high concentration of pure vitamin C (10.5%), known for its powerful ability to improve the appearance of aging, significantly reduces marionette lines around the mouth, crow’s-feet and sub-orbital wrinkles with continued use.

This product is said to be Kiehl’s #1 best-selling product in the U.S., China, Italy, and Singapore – which makes it very promising, I can’t wait to see if the same miracle works on me!

Will try with this C-rum 😛 and give you all an update in a few days.
