y Instagram Photo @alisonblackman above shows the newly relaunched Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate with Vitamin C Facts and Fiction.
When this product first launched in 2005 it was hailed as cutting-edge, with 10.5% pure, stabilized Vitamin C which was impressive for its time.
The Advice Sisters Beauty and Style called it “kick-ass” in 2015 (read review). I am not alone. According to Kiehl’s this popular skincare sells about one per minute around the world, with more than 5 million bottles sold to date.
Fast Forward to 2018 and in what Kiehl’s claims is their largest formula renovation in 166 years, the next generation of this amazing product boosts the Vitamin C even more, to 12.5% plus there’s hyaluronic acid to help hydrate and combat the signs of aging.
What’s new? Why is this serum continually amazing?
The lightweight, creamy, non-greasy texture and very light citrus scent (from essential oils) remind you that Vitamin C offers mega-skincare benefits.
But the key is Vitamin C.
Topical Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, but not all forms of Vitamin C are equally effective. The combo of (10.5% Pure Vitamin C [L-Ascorbic Acid] + 2% Vitamin Cg [Ascorbyl Glucoside]), and is now, Hyaluronic Acid packs a big punch against dehydration, and helps to reduce fine lines and deeper set wrinkles.
Used regularly, it can also help brighten your skin tone and even smooth away uneven skin surfaces.
Use It/Lose It
Vitamin C doesn’t stay fresh forever, that is why Kiehl’s has packaged this serum in an amber pump bottle to keep the light (and heat) from degrading it. If you buy this product plan to use it up. Apply it regularly day and evening under your favorite moisturizer and soon you’re likely to see visible results that delight you.
The water, oil, fragrance, and colorant-free serum isn’t just powerful, it’s actually reasonably priced: $62 for 1.7 fl. oz. | $81 for 2.5 fl. oz. | $104 for 3.4 fl. oz.
“C” Facts Vs/ Fiction:
In the box with the serum I received from Kiehl’s was a card with Facts and Fiction about Vitamin C:
Fact: Your skin needs Topical Vitamin C (nope, you can’t just use oranges). Vitamin C is good for skin types at any age and not all Vitamin C products are created equal.
Fiction: more Vitamin C isn’t always better. Topical Vitamin C only works at night.
The Bottom Line:
I don’t gush about skincare very often, but I loved the earlier version and this one is well...even better! Find it at your favorite Kiehl’s store or online at https://www.kiehls.com
