The won­ders of Vi­ta­min C are noth­ing new, but skin­care is gen­er­ally care­ful not to in­clude too po­tent a for­mula be­cause it’s pretty in­tense on the skin and hard to keep fresh. That’s not to say you should shy away from the vi­ta­min — after all it does brighten skin and di­min­ish lines and wrin­kles. So, when Clinique’s Fresh Pressed Re­new­ing Cleanser and Daily Booster ar­rived, I couldn’t wait to give it a go. It’s stayfresh, sin­gle-use pack­ettes and dinky pack­ag­ing makes the 7-day chal­lenge fool­proof while also pro­tect­ing the po­tency of pure Vi­ta­min C. I be­gan by mix­ing the ul­tra­fine pow­der cleanser with wa­ter. I was ad­vised to leave it on my skin for one minute be­fore wash­ing it off to cap­ture the Vi­ta­min C. Then came the booster (mixed in with my reg­u­lar mois­turiser) that gave my skin the full de-age­ing power of 10 per cent fresh Vi­ta­min C. My skin was no­tice­ably more ra­di­ant after one ap­pli­ca­tion and lu­mi­nous after seven days. This def­i­nitely beats freshly squeezed or­ange juice!
