This is quite a break through for Clinique because it is the first time they have managed to harness the full power pure vitamin C with a formulation that is activated at point of use for anti-ageing benefit. Here’s the low down on the brand new Clinique Fresh Pressed 7 Day System with Pure Vitamin C.
UPDATE – Just launched HERE.
So this is all about super-potent ingredients that work to brighten, even and retexturise the skin in just seven days. Its formulation and packaging tackles the biggest issue with topical vitamin C – retaining freshness and potency.
Clinique Fresh Pressed 7 Day System Features
There are two elements to the system – a cleanser and a booster:
- 7-day supplyof fresh-pressed utlra-fine powder cleanser
- Booster has a dual chambered design which keeps the Vitamin C fresh until mixed
- You cleanse in the morning with powder mixed with water to jump start cellular repair
- Then mix 2 drops of the activated booster into your moisturiser morning and night
- The kit contains a seven day supply
This is a simple seven day system that you can use before a special event or if your skin is in need of a boost.
Clinique Fresh Pressed Powder Cleanser
Within the kit you get seven little packets of cleansing powder which you rip open and pour into a wet hand. You add a little extra water and work it into a later before gently massaging it over the skin. Leave for one minute and then rinse.
It uses vitamin C for brightness and luminosity, Kaolin Clay to purify the skin and Salicylic Acid to exfoliate, tone and retexturise. The single use packs maintain the integrity and potency of the formulation.
Clinique Fresh Pressed Baily Booster
To activate, you simply peel off the foil seal and press the orange button twice to release the vitamin C powder. You shake for 15 seconds and it’s ready to go! You mix two drops with your moisturiser to power up your routine. If you like, you can apply like a serum directly to the skin.
It uses vitamin C for radiance and Molasses to break up existing pigmentation. There’s also a blend of Mulberry Root Extract, Scutellaria Extract and Grape Fruit Extract to defend against oxidative damage and prevent future discolouration.
I have had a little try of this and I think it’s a really interesting launch. The cleanser is lovely. So easy to use and it left my skin feeling super clean and smooth and looking glowy. I think these powder sachets would be amazing for travel and not only do you get a great morning cleanse, but a potent shot of vitamin C too.
The booster mixed in nicely with my moisturiser and left my skin with a good glow. My makeup went on nicely on top. Fabulous!! If I make it through the week, I’ll update and let you know how I go,
The Clinique Fresh Pressed 7 Day System with Pure Vitamin C is £25 and launches on 10th March. You will also be able to buy supplies of the cleanser and booster separately. Find it HERE.
