Clinique Fresh Pressed 7 Day System with 10% Pure Vitamin C – First Impressions

IMG_20170506_190957_416With so many products on the market today containing Vitamin C or specializing in Vitamin C in the product, I’ve tried quite a few! ¬†And, my list is growing! ¬†I’m going to be adding more content on the subject more often and will keep those reviews catagorized for you to find them more easily. ¬†Lets get started! ¬†When I first read about Cliniques, Fresh Pressed 7 day, Daily Booster with 10% pure Vitamin C, I have to say, I didn’t take note right away. ¬†In fact, it wasn’t until Saturday May 6th, on my ¬†monthly visit to Ulta Beauty for my routine cut n color. ¬† I always pop into the Cinique Counter to see what Ashley, the Clinique adviser for Ulta, is up to! ¬†Always ready to show me whats new, how to use the products, what to expect and she loads me up with great samples and products to try! ¬†I knew before my last visit, I’d want to try this new Clinique product! ¬†I KNOW what Vitamin C can do for your complexion, AND MINE! ¬†For $27.00, you’ll receive, a 7 day supply of cleansing packettes. ¬†I use half of each packette in the morning, seal it up tight, and use the other half in the PM. ¬†The cleanser with this system is what really sold me. ¬†I did a little investigation. ¬†Clinique found, when Vitamin C, ¬†is in dry powder form, its shelf life can sustain the pure potency of the Vitamin, not losing any of its strength in percentage for optimal skins benefits. ¬†You pour the cleanser into your hand and add a few drops of water, forming a soapy like paste. ¬†Start rubbing it gently onto your face and neck, allowing it to stay on for 1 minute. I could actually feel a small section of my cheek tingling, but, probably because, I microneedle and may still have a treatment area exposed. ¬†On day 2, I am noticing my complexion becoming a bit brighter. ¬†Softer texture and not dried out. ¬†I had those concerns but, surprisingly, my skin feels hydrated! ¬† After 1 minute, rinse the cleanser off and pat dry your face.

Now, for the serum! ¬†The part thats a little scientific! ¬†As I stated above, Clinique research has found, Vitamin C can be left stable in powder form not losing any of its original potency. ¬†In the Fresh Pressed 7 Day System Daily Booster, the potency is 10%. ¬†You peel off the protective foil cover, and press firmly, the dome top. ¬†This releases the Vitamin C powder, into the serum, in the bottom of the bottle. ¬†You give it 15 second shake, take off the lid and shake out 2 drops. ¬†Its suggested to mix the serum with your favorite Clinique moisturizer or any other moisturizer you’re using. ¬†Once the Vitamin C powder is mixed with the serum, the serum has the power to maintain the potency of the Vitamin C for 7 days. ¬†The serum has a formula that encapsulates the Vitamin C. ¬†Its highly recommened to use this product as intended, in 7 days! ¬† ¬†I happen to have Clinique Dramatically Different on hand so, I mixed my 2 drops with that. ¬†Its also suggested, you can just apply the serum directly on your face and neck. ¬†I recommend mixing it because, you’ll get more coverage than trying to dispurse 2 little drops. ¬†Gentle message your moisturizer with Fresh Pressed Vitamin C serum mixture, into your face and neck until fully absorbed. ¬†Thats it! ¬†Depending if you start your treatment in the AM or PM, you’ll have the other half of the cleanser packette to use. ¬†It may be suggested to use the whole packette in 1 cleanse but, I cleanse twice a day and this kit has 7 cleansing packettes for 7 days of treatment. ¬†I feel, theres plenty in 1 packette for 2 cleanses. 1 AM and PM. ¬†I’m on day 2 as noted earlier. ¬†I’m not going to say I’ve noticed a big difference but, by day 7, I am hoping to be part of the 36% who emmediatly saw a brighter complexion. ¬†My complexion does appear to be a bit clearer so, I’m ticking this box! ¬†The same 36% of reviewers saw in just 7 days, a more radiant ¬†even tone, ¬†smooth, firmer look. ¬†From what Ashley, the Clinique Discovery Skin Specialist told me, you can either use the 7 day Fresh Pressed Daily Booster, 1 week out of each month for 3 months, at $27.00 a month for the next 3 months, and your treatments are complete. ¬†Or, you can purchase the same Fresh Pressed Daily Booster with 10% Vitamin C, in the larger kit, treating your skin continuasly for 3 weeks straight and achieve the same results, but seeing them quicker. ¬†In laymens terms, For the impatient! Those of you that love instant gratification! Theres no right or wrong way, 7 days on, 21 off, or 21 straight days.

The Clinique Fresh Pressed 7 Day Daily Booster claims to awaken skins youthful look. ¬†It will firm, tone, give you a radiant glow, help deminish fine lines and wrinkles. ¬†For only being on day 2, I have ticked 3 boxes. ¬†I’ve noticed my complexion looking radiant, Im noticing a slight differnce in tone and a definate difference in texture! ¬†I’m can’t wait for day #7 and will be updating this review! ¬†Sure, it’s a little pricey but, why put a dollar sign before your skin care concerns. ¬†Vitamin C helps fight acne, reduces fine lines and wrinkles while building healthy new Collagen, and giving your skin a healthy young, radiant glow. ¬†I’ve added ¬†Cliniques All About the Eyes Gel moisture serum to me regimen to help with dark circles and puffiness around my eyes. ¬†Theres something in the ingredients that actually helps drain the fluid in the lympatic system around your eyes. ¬†You can find it at Ulta for $32.00 for .05 oz /15 mm and a very little goes a long way. ¬†For $32.00, it better!

So, all in all, I wanted to touch base you on day 2 of my Clinique Fresh Pressed 7 Day, Daily Booster treatment. ¬†I feel, so far, it is worth $27.00. ¬†My other alternative would be to spend $50.00 or more on a Vitamin C product, I’d have to use daily and risk my product losing its potency. ¬†If you enjoyed this review and would please hit the LIKE button and share it to your social media, I’d appreciate it very much! ¬†Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you got something good out of it…Now go get your Vitamin C 7 Day Daily Booster! ¬†You and your complexion won’t be disappointed! ¬†You can also find me @semperfime151 on instagram. ¬†I keep a daily record with photos and mini reviews of all my great, money saving skin care and cosmetic finds! ¬†Some, not so affordable, sorry, but, I do try to have something for everyone! ¬†You’ll find an array of great products with reviews from high price to low!
