Spotlight | Skin & Lab White Vita-C Essence.

It hasn't been long since I incorporated essences(s) in my skincare routine. I discovered them a little over a year ago, starting with the Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence from COSRX, and I have been obsessed with essences - and the wonderful things that they do for your skin - ever since.

If you remember my blog post about my first-ever Althea haul, the product that I was most excited about was the Skin & Lab White Vita-C Essence. I have read tons of positive reviews about this product, which was one of the reasons why I wanted to give it a try.
Skin & Lab Dr. Vita Clinic White Vita-C Essence, Php 730 at the Althea website.
Althea likens this product to 'a big, refreshing glass of orange juice for the skin'. And we all know that orange juice is one of the richest sources of vitamin C, which is an anti-oxidant and detoxifying agent that prevents and neutralizes free radicals from causing damage to our body.

The Skin & Lab White Vita-C Essence contains Ethyl Ascorbyl Ether, a more stabilized form of vitamin C. And with its higher concentration of vitamin C, this product not only effectively brightens the skin and reduces dark spots, but also strengthens the skin and stimulates collagen production.
Brighter and smoother skin, why not? :)
This essence also contains green tea seed oil, which is also rich in vitamin C; sea buckthorn oil, which helps slow down the signs of aging by nourishing the tissues in the skin; spider silk protein which retains skin moisture and makes the skin softer and smoother; and arginine/lysine polypeptide which acts like an elixir for skin health.
Product description + usage instructions.
The product comes in a pump bottle made of frosted glass, and based on my research, vitamin-C skincare products are typically packaged as such to to keep them from degrading or losing efficacy. Although the glass bottle isn't very travel-friendly, at least I know that this product is packaged appropriately.
Comes in a 50 mL frosted glass bottle.
And a pump inside.
This essence has a light, watery consistency which makes it super easy for the skin to absorb. It neither feels heavy nor sticky on the skin, and it doesn't make your face shiny or greasy after application. I especially love its invigorating, citrus-y scent - reminds me of fresh orange juice that my husband used to make.
You get this much product with just one pump.
I've been using this essence for more than two months now, applying it in the morning after patting my face with toner and before slathering my face with an SPF30/PA++ day cream. It is imperative that you wear sunscreen, as skincare products infused with vitamin C make your skin more sensitive to the sun. If you're worried about sun damage or if you think your sunscreen isn't potent enough against the harmful rays of the sun, then you can opt to use this essence at night. As for me, I prefer taking my daily dose of vitamin C in the morning, whether it's an oral health supplement, or a skincare product.
Confidently bare-faced, thanks to Skin & Lab White Vita-C Essence.
And so far, this essence has kept its promise of 'brighter and smoother skin'. I've noticed that my skin has become softer and smoother over time, and the blotchy, uneven patches around my cheekbones are no longer visible. I love the 'chok chok effect' (aka dewy, bouncy, glowing skin) that I'm getting from this product, and from the looks of it, I'll be using this essence down to the very last drop!

I was looking into Vitamin C creams awhile ago but I never purchased because I couldn't make a choice. Now that the weather is getting cooler I need to look closer at my routine. Thank you for the recommendation.

Michelle said...

I've been trying to level up my skin care regimen and I think this is a good product to try. Thanks for a very detailed review!

momi berlin said...

Great that it delivers what it promises. I just hope it works well to others because we tend to have different skin reaction to products.

Unknown said...

I think I need this to help care for my ageing skin. I am not big on skin care and I just do the basic cleanse-tone-moisturize while mostly neglecting to moisturize on most occasions. I realize I ought to care for my skin more now that I am nearing my 40's. You might have not mentioned the price for this product and do you know of a shop I can order this locally? Thanks! :)

Louisa said...

I'm very wary when it comes to facial products. There are so many products to try it can be overwhelming that's why I appreciate first hand experiences like these to help me decide. Looks great mommy!

Pam / Hey, Miss Adventures! said...

Wow. This is so nice. I've been looking at some products (but not doing a full, detailed review hahaha) so I can start taking care of my skin since I'm almost 30. I'll add this to my list!

Marie Angeli Laxa said...

I've been lazy in following my skin care routine, so I consider this a reminder! I've never used an essence though. I'll be looking into this one.

Tweenselmom said...
