REVIEW: Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask

I’ve told you many things about vitamin C and how marvelous it can be for our skin in terms of anti-ageing and protection from environmental influences. But do you remember that I also told you about how easily its effects are supercharged by manyfolds if you just combine it with a product containing vitamin E?

I can’t wait any longer, I must tell you about my favorite product to use with my vitamin C serum.  Btw. it looks and feels like pudding. It doesn’t taste like it tho. Sad life of Virginia.

The product

The KLAIRS Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask comes in a sturdy, heavy plastic container. I don’t suggest you drop it, but if you do it probably won’t break. I’m a master product-tosser, I’ve dropped about all of my products so far, and it withheld my throwing masterfully.


To ensure no contamination and proper clean application, the mask also comes with a tiny spatula. Let me tell you it really looks like you’d be digging into a cup of delicious pudding when you take out some product. The temptation to just eat it is overwhelming, but don’t do it. As I am a good product tester, I may also have eaten some at some point and no, it doesn’t taste like pudding, not even close.
The product itself is of this white jelly-like consistency. It literally melts as soon as you touch it and it’s very easy to spread. This special kind of consistency is called ‘Shape Memory Cream’ - it’s melty and firm at the same time. Also whenever you remove some product from the jar, the mask sets to an even surface again and it looks like you’ve never even taken any product out. It smells slightly of fresh sweet flowers and citrus fruits. On the skin it feels like liquid silk and it gets absorbed by your skin in minutes. For me it left a slight sticky film that I just washed off in the morning. - It’s still a mask after all. And the stickiness also comes from the nature of vitamin E. 

Oh and, it’s a super flexible product too! It can be used on its own, combined with an essence, as moisturizer or as an extra-injection of hydration after your moisturizer.


I for one, always use it together with my Vitamin C Serum. It boosts my skin overnight and I wake up with the smoothest, most hydrated skin. (Also wrinkles don’t stand a chance.)

The ingredients


Vitamin E


Vitamin E also known as tocopherol is our star ingredient in this review. Vitamin E and Vitamin C are both very strong antioxidants. And as we know, antioxidants are what keeps our skin young and healthy, far away from wrinkles and blemishes. Vitamin E is one of the most common vitamins in our diet and being deficient of it is next to impossible. From sunflower oil, avocados to popcorn, it can be found pretty much anywhere. Sources highest in Vitamin E are plant based oils like canola oil or as mentioned, sunflower oil.


How exactly does it work?

Basically, it has a very weak O-H bond and just goes around throwing its H (Hydrogen Atom) at free radicals, rendering them ineffective. No damage, no harm. But that also turns the vitamin into a very unreactive molecule, but no worries as soon as it meets some Vitamin C it reverts back to it’s old stage and is good to go again! See how this works in protecting your skin?
Vitamin C being fat soluble,it is being incorporated into skin cells which are then protected by the vitamin e from any oxidative damage.


Moving on.. Next up, Niacinamide!

I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of this before, and if you did.. Kudos to you! In my opinion, this form of vitamin B3 should be far more popular. Although not commonly found in food, or only in trace amounts, it is very beneficial to the skin. It is used to treat acne and sometimes even to support people to get a good sleep.

Back to the skin stuff. Niacinamide possesses anti-inflammatory properties and helps to keep your skin barrier intact. Both of these things are undoubtedly beneficial to people suffering from acne or other inflammatory skin conditions.


Last but not least: Adenosine

Adenosine is abundant in your body and also very important. It’s an organic compound that is part of your cell fuel known as ATP/ADP. (I bet you’ve heard about that in biology before.)  I personally like to recommend Adenosine to more mature women, because it possesses serious anti-aging and skin smoothing properties. Adenosine has proven anti-wrinkle properties, which obviously makes your skin look fresh and young. Further, it comes with anti-inflammatory and anti-irritation effects.

Miss Vs Tips for the use of the Vitamin E Facemask

  1. Don’t use too much! A little goes a long way. The sticky residue is normal, it’s a property of Vitamin E. 
  2. Combine with your favorite Vitamin C Serum for maximum effects. Vitamin C is photosensitive, so only combine those two lovelies at night before going to bed. 
  3. Ran out of moisturizer? Use the KLAIRS Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Facemask instead! If you don’t use too much, it can be used as a daily moisturizer too.

Have fun glowing!

Klairs Vit e mask is my go-to sleeping pack. I noticed the brightening effect within a few days, great for fading acne scars.

My favourite sleeping mask! The scent is so nice and calming it’s perfect for bed time. It helped brightening my acne scars but sensitive skin folks might wanna test this on a small area. It has essential oils and can break you out.
