Vitamin C is a powerhouse skincare ingredient. 

The advantages of using vitamin C include:

  • Evening out skin tone and texture 
  • Diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brightening overall complexion, and more

I’ve been trying out different kinds of vitamin C products throughout the year. 

Because I have sensitive skin, I started with toners and moisturizers, products that generally have lower concentrations of vitamin C, so I have less chances of having a bad reaction to them (check out this vitamin C skincare guide for beginners if you want to learn more).

By Wishtrend Pure Vitamin C 15% with Ferulic Acid is my first foray into the world of vitamin C serums. 

There are thousands of options out there but I chose this product because it was formulated for vitamin C beginners and people like me who have sensitive skin.

And with the addition of ferulic acid, not only is the potency of vitamin C maximized, it also makes this product a great way to manage adult acne, which I suffer from.

Klairs is a popular Korean skincare brand that’s all about simplicity. They only use the most necessary ingredients to make a product work as effectively as possible.

I’m a big fan of their Midnight Blue Calming Cream and their Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50

So I was excited to try their Klairs Gentle Black Fresh Cleansing Oil (not to be confused with their Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil though, which offers deeper cleansing).

I’m pretty loyal to DHC Cleansing Oil but since this product is from Klairs, I was willing to give it a shot and, I must admit, I had very high expectations.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while (thanks!), you’d know that not only am I big fan of k-beauty and Asian skincare products; I’ve also become such a big fan of Rovectin.

Their story is inspiring, their philosophy is based on science, and every product I’ve tried so far has transformed my skin for the better.

I start my day by cleansing my face with Skin Essentials Conditioning Cleanser. I use Skin Essentials Activating Treatment Lotion day and night. 

Their LHA Blemish Ampoule has replaced most of the serums in my routine. And their Aqua Soothing UV Protector has a permanent place in my sunscreen rotation.

So I have a cleanser, an essence, a serum and a sunscreen. I’ve been waiting for a moisturizer to round things off so I was so excited to receive this newly launched sleeping pack in the mail! 

And it’s the first product from Rovectin’s Cica Care line that I get to try. Let’s get to it.

COSRX Oil-Free Moisturizing Lotion with Birch Sap Review

COSRX Oil-Free Moisturizing Lotion with Birch Sap is an ultra lightweight moisturizing lotion that hydrates skin without leaving a greasy residue, and calms acne-prone skin without causing more breakouts. 

COSRX Oil-Free Moisturizing Lotion with Birch Sap Review

When I’m looking for new skincare products to try, I’ve now started to look at the ingredient list. 

First I want to see if there’s anything in there that could potentially irritate my skin and second, I try to determine how much of an active ingredient a product contains. 

Remember the Mugwort Essence from I’m From, which only has 1 ingredient (100% mugwort extract) or Klairs Fundamental Water Gel Cream that has 63.7% green tea water? More is better.

COSRX Oil-Free Moisturizing Lotion with Birch Sap contains 70.85% Betula Platyphylla Japonica Juice or birch sap, which is powerhouse skincare ingredient known for its calming and soothing properties.
