Vitamin C, the key product that is highly sought after in the beauty world for its brightening and anti-ageing effects, is probably harnessed by every brand in the skincare market. I'm sure many of you are curious, what makes each one unique to themselves and do they really work?! Being a full-time beauty investigator, I am constantly searching for the next IT product that would work magic on my skin. When I found out about Clinique's newest Fresh Pressed 7-Day System during their launch event, I knew I had to test it out.
With the innovative two-step system, Fresh Pressed contains pure Vitamin C that promises to give you brighter, radiant skin. The Fresh Pressed System also claims to turn back the clock of ageing and leave you with a firmer youthful glow. Well, it is my first time trying out such an interesting product so after completing my #7DayChallenge, here are my thoughts on the next IT Vitamin C skincare.
Purporting itself as the ultimate Vitamin C booster for your skin, Clinique's Fresh Pressed 7-Day System consists of a powder cleanser and a daily booster serum to completely rejuvenate the skin. Retailing at SGD39 for a set of 7 powder cleanser sachets and 1 daily booster serum, it is a great starter pack for those who are unsure about this product. You get to try out the scent, texture and experience its powerful dose of pure Vitamin C without burning a hole in your pocket.
This power duo is great for travelling due to its compact packaging so it is a big plus point for a frequent globetrotter like me. Fresh Pressed utilises only PURE Vitamin C, the most effective but also the most unstable as it oxidises easily when exposed to air and light. With its carefully thought-out packaging, you can rest assure that you will only be getting the freshest daily dose of Vitamin C for your skin.
Fresh Pressed Renewing Powder Cleanser with Vitamin C (SGD39 for 28 Sachets)
A water-activated powder cleanser, it contains fresh Vitamin C to kickstart your morning. This non-scented cleanser lathers easily and doesn't strip your skin off its natural oils. The Fresh Pressed Renewing Powder Cleanser delivers instant brightness to the skin whilst removing all traces of lethargy. To use, simply pour the powder into your wet palms and work it into a smooth fluffy lather. Gently massage it into your skin and leave on for 1 minute to let the Pure Vitamin C work its magic. Rinse and viola, you will be left with a canvas that is bright and ready to take on the day!
I love this for its tiny packaging as it is both air and lightproof to ensure freshness of the Pure Vitamin C. Without the fear of being stopped by customs, it is so easy to throw into my travel bag and refresh myself after a long haul flight. After just 3-4 sachets, I have noticed that my skin is a lot brighter, fairer and less sallow from the lack of sleep. You know how coffee gives you an instant burst of energy? Well, this powder cleanser is like my daily skin caffeine fix to ensure that I look presentable and fresh throughout the day.
Fresh Pressed Daily Booster with Pure Vitamin C (SGD99 for four 8.5ml Bottles)
The Fresh Pressed Daily Booster has a clever innovative packaging to ensure freshness of the Pure Vitamin C. With a two chamber packaging, when pushed to dispensed, it mixes the Vitamin C powder together with a gel-like emulsion to release the perfect fresh combination of Vitamin C goodness. Once activated, each daily booster is able to last generously for a week. As it is made up of completely Pure Vitamin C, it will oxidise over a week which will deem the product useless (the product will become darker, just like your juice when left out in the open!) So darlings, don't go scrimping on it, I'm sure you want the best for your skin! The Daily Booster can be incorporated into your skincare simply by adding 2 drops into your moisturiser both day and night.
This was the game changer for me as I felt the most difference throughout the entire 7-Day Challenge. Ever since incorporating it into my day and night moisturiser, my skin was visibly less oily throughout the day and my makeup sat really beautifully too. It helped to even out my skin tone and texture which came even as a surprise to me! Of course, I thoroughly enjoyed playing with the pump dispenser and I did have a little product left after a week so don't be deceived by its tiny bottle. It definitely packs a punch!
Honestly, I am really impressed with Clinique's Fresh Pressed 7-Day System. Not gonna lie, I was a little lost when I first learnt about Fresh Pressed. I have never come across a brand that has marketed their skincare in a two-step system that is already so carefully planned for you. However, after understanding and actually using it, the Fresh Pressed System has definitely helped a lot in terms of improving my skin's overall complexion. During my 7-Day Challenge, I felt so comfortable with my bare skin to the point that I was avidly flaunting it over on Instagram Stories (haha, I know...show off but clear glowing skin don't happen often for me!). I would recommend you guys to try out the Fresh Pressed 7-Day System to see if it is your cup of tea. It is the perfect starter kit before jumping into the long haul. :)
The innovative Fresh Pressed System is sure to take many by surprise. However, we were lucky to have the amazing skincare expert, Larry Yeo, alongside the beautiful Shu Ann to introduce this Fresh Pressed System to us. Hopefully, I managed to translate whatever I have learnt during the event to you guys! It is always a cherry on top of all these midnight hard work whenever you guys get back to me on how much my personal experiences and reviews have helped you. With that, thank you all for reading and to Clinique Singapore for this amazing 7-Day experience!
To clearer, brighter skin. #GreatSkinCanBeCreated!
