Vitabrid C¹² Must-Haves for Healthy Glowing Skin

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Vitabrid C¹² products are obsession-worthy for a reason, and it is no surprised that these K-Beauty gems achieved cult-status soon after they launched. I have used a great many of their products, and covet and use them with great regularity. I have three favorites that I have been using lately that I wanted to share with you because they are indispensable in their ability to give skin a stunning healthy glow. Their products brighten the skin, impart luminosity and clarity, and the results are immediate.

About Vitabrid C¹²:

Vitabrid C¹² harnesses the power of vitamin C in its collection of beauty treatments. Through proprietary biotechnology, vitamin C is mixed with stabilizing zinc, a combination designed to capture the nutrient’s potency and allow it to penetrate the skin and scalp over the course of 12 hours. The groundbreaking compound can be found in the line’s shampoo, anti-hair loss treatment, skin brightener, acne fighter, and more.
Vitabrid Dual Mask Deep Hydration & Moisture Retention ($35.00 for 5 sheet masks from Barneys New York): That all sheet masks are not created equal is a point that simply cannot be sufficiently underscored. Certainly there are sheet masks at every price, and that are formulated for a wide range of skincare concerns, but there are those that really distinguish themselves from the rest, and unsurprisingly Vitabrid is among them.

First, one will note that Vitabrid is very generous with the amount of serum that they use to saturate their masks, and one must not forget to use all of the serum that pools at the bottom of the package. In fact, there is enough excess serum that one can slather it just about everywhere on their face, neck, décolleté, arms and hands.

The mask is formulated to seriously brighten skin and impart pronounced luminosity. After about 20 minutes skin has a pronounced clarity and a dewy luminosity. The effects are immediate and obvious. This is the perfect mask to use before a special event, or whenever you want your skin to have an unmistakable healthy glow.
According to Vitabrid,

The Vitabrid Dual Sheet Mask: Brightening and Luminous instantly brightens tired and distressed skin and enhances radiance and luminosity. This hypoallergenic, microfiber sheet mask adheres comfortably to the skin to promote even absorption of its active ingredients. Its highly concentrated, soothing formula further restores and provides deep moisture to the skin.

The line features unique Peptibrid® and Vitabrid® technologies to improve the stability and penetration of wrinkle-fighting peptides. Peptibrid® (INCI name: Peptibrid) improves the purity and penetration rate of peptides by improving its limitations such as stability and skin absorption. It promotes collagen synthesis and regeneration efficiency. Meanwhile, Vitabrid® delivers advanced biomaterials that overcome the limitations of traditional Vitamin C, which is easily oxidized, water-soluble and difficult to transfer into the skin. This proprietary new form of Vitamin C penetrates deeper into the skin in an activated state, allowing it to act for more than 12 hours simultaneously (ICID entry name: Vitabrid CG).

Main Features:

Deliver Effective and Safe Ingredients: A powerful proprietary blend of Vitabrid® and Peptibrid® is effectively and safely transferred deep into the skin, boosting skin regeneration, elasticity, moisturizing, soothing and brightening effects.

Intensive Antioxidant Ingredients: Niacinamide + Glutathione + Alpha-Bisabolol + Madecassoside
Non-Irritating Microfiber Sheet Mask: Hydrating and non-irritating microfiber sheet perfectly adheres to the skin and the extremely fine microfiber helps continuous absorption of the active ingredients

Key Ingredients:

Peptibrid®: provides deep delivery of peptides to promote collagen synthesis. It also offers skin regeneration and an antioxidant effect; heals damaged skin

Trehalose, Betaine, Hyaluronic Acid, Allantoin: aid in moisture retention.

Vitabrid CG (Active & Stable Vitamin C): Skin brightening, elasticity improvement, skin regeneration effect, helps to improve skin condition.

Stem Cell Triple Complex: Provides skin regeneration and antioxidant effect, maintains elasticity and firmness.

Peptide Complex: Promotes proliferation of fibroblasts to relieve wrinkles.

Niacinamide + Glutathione + Alpha-Bisabolol + Madecassoside: Brightens and inhibits pigmentation, making the overall skin tone more even.

Sodium Hyaluronate + Xylitol + Allantoin: Delivers a high moisture content that fills dry skin from the inside out to keep it moisturized.
Directions: Peel off the sheet and wear for approximately 10 to 20 minutes. Lightly tap in any remaining essence into the face and neck with fingertips.
Vitabrid C¹² FACE Brightening Powder ($60.00 for 0.11 oz. from Barneys New York): is an effective and concentrated Vitamin C-based powder that you simply mix into your favorite serum or moisturizer for brighter, firmer and more luminous skin. It has no scent, no detectable texture, and it immediately dissolves when added to your serum, cream or lotion. To use, I simply shake a small amount into my palm, but if you prefer to carefully measure the amount that you use, they do provide a small scoop for your convenience.
This is probably the easiest way to introduce topical Vitamin C into your skincare routine, and unlike liquid-based Vitamin C Serums, this powder form remains more stable. Vitabrid C¹² utilizes their proprietary form of Vitamin C, that is time-released over a period of 12 hours, and the longer that you use it the more benefits that you see. I immediately noticed a brightening effect and increased luminosity, but after using it for a few weeks, I also noted that my skin appeared more even in tone, fine lines were softened and my skin looked fresh and healthy. My skin, which can be sensitive at times, had no adverse reaction to the high concentration of topical Vitamin C, nor did I experience any drying whatsoever.
According to Vitabrid C¹²,

Vitabrid C¹²’s FACE Brightening Powder releases a proprietary form of active vitamin C into the skin over the course of 12 hours for a firmer, healthier, and more luminous complexion. Skin looks and feels revitalized, while the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is diminished.

Containing its breakthrough ingredient, Vitabrid CG, this is a brand-new Vitamin C complex, certified as a new material by the International Cosmetic Ingredient Dictionary. This revolutionary discovery stores and preserves active Vitamin C within skin-friendly mineral layers. Once applied, it releases active Vitamin C continuously for over 12 hours, permeating through the skin layers down to the dermis. Simply mix the FACE Brightening Powder with water or combine it with a skincare product of your choice (any serum, essence, cream or toner) for a powerful beauty booster.

Vitamin C is known to make skin healthy and radiant by neutralizing the damaging effects of free-radical activity from sun, stress, and pollution, and repairing visible signs of aging. As a highly potent, transdermal Vitamin C powder, it helps brighten, reducing the appearance of melanin for a clearer, more even complexion. With twice daily use in the AM and PM, skin is also shown to maintain a vibrant and firm texture as the powder minimizes fine lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen production.The result is a scientifically driven booster for nourished and glowing skin with natural radiance.

Directions: Shake before using to loosen the powder. Mix an appropriate amount of the powder with daily skin care product of your choice (serum or moisturizer) in the palm of your hand. Smooth the mixture onto a clean face and neck. For best results, apply in the morning and evening.

This formula also includes: Allantoin 0.25%, Zinc Oxide 25%, Niacinamide 5% and Adenosine 4%.
Vitabrid C12 Facial Boosting Water ($28.00 for 4.4 oz. from Vitabrid C¹² and Saks Fifth Avenue):: This toner was specifically formulated to use in conjunction with Vitabrid C¹² FACE Brightening Powder, and once you mix them you will immediately see why they conceived of this brilliant brightening duo. This toner seriously boosts moisture levels and softens the appearance of fine lines because of Vitabrid's ingenious and potent blend of peptides and Hyaluronic Acid. When mixed with their Brightening Powder, skin is left luminous, dewy and over time more even in tone.

According to Vitabrid,

The toner’s key benefits include moisture barrier enhancement and balancing the skin’s pH levels, while providing an antioxidant effect. As a moisture retention toner, Vitabrid C12’s Facial Boosting Water moisturizes, cleanses and balances the skin’s oil/moisture content. It contains protein water to strengthen the skin moisture barrier and soybean fermented water to strengthen the skin barrier. It also provides a calming effect for healthy, glowing skin.

Featuring a Strong Antioxidant Care System, the formula is enriched with PeptibridTM, SOD, Glutathione, Resveratrol, and Stem Cells. Together, this suppresses skin aging caused by active oxygen, promotes skin activation, and gives excellent help to maximize the skin's antioxidant effect and maintain elasticity and firmness. In particular, Peptibrid™ is the next step in the evolution of peptide delivery platforms. Peptibrid (INCI name: Peptibrid) improves the purity and penetration rate of peptides by improving its limitations such as stability and skin absorption. It promotes collagen synthesis and regeneration efficiency.
Key Ingredients:

Peptibrid™: Provides skin regeneration and antioxidant effect, heals damaged skin.

Stem Cell: Provides skin regeneration and antioxidant effect, maintains elasticity & firmness.

SOD (Superoxide Dismutase), Glutathione, Resveratrol: Suppresses skin aging caused by active oxygen, promotes skin activation, and gives excellent help to skin's antioxidant effect.
