Yay—let's recycle! Here’s a quick guide for when you've finished using all your products:
1. Make the products 'recycle ready' by rinsing it out and cleaning it. What if the product doesn't work for me? Give it to someone who might like to try it! That way, you will minimise wastage and give the product a second home. ♡♡
2. Get the DETAILS! Typically, most skin care packaging is recyclable in Australia, but what can and can’t be recycled depends on where you live. A quick Google search will reveal a recycling guideline based on your state / territory.
3. Can I put this in my recycling bin? If you've checked and the answer is 'yes', give these items a second life and put them in the recycling bin. If it's not, look into enterprises like TerraCycle, to help you properly recycle your beauty products. If the product is recycable through TerraCycle, it is FREE and all you have to do is gather your empty products together, print a recycling label and ship it out - that’s it! They’ll take care of the rest for you.
FYI, recycling plants uses numbers ranging from 1 to 7 to help sort all the materials. PETE stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate and PP stands for Polypropylene — these are both plastics. PAP represents paper / mixed paper / cardboard. See Earth Easy to learn more about your plastics.
That's it babes! Remember to love our earth; love our planet! #dontbetrashy

The Klairs Vitamin C Drops contains 5% vitamin c and is safe for all skin types including sensitive skin.
These drops fall in the 'treatment' phase of your skincare routine. Typical use would be to apply 3-4 drops after toning / essence and before your moisturiser. Gently massage into your skin. If you feel your skin is more sensitive, you can mix it with your moisturiser OR apply after moisturiser.
Side note: this product is fragrance-free and feels like a light facial oil, but doesn't feel greasy. It also warms up when applied to the face so don’t be alarmed! Please use caution when using vitamin c with other products containing BHA / AHA. Over exfoliation can lead to a compromised skin barrier.
TIP: Follow up with SPF when using during the day. We also recommend to store all vitamin C products in the fridge or a dark cool place away from direct sunlight. This will make the product retain its effectiveness for longer and protect from oxidization.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does Klairs vitamin C cause purging?
Klairs' vitamin C shouldn't cause purging, but hold up. 'Purging' itself is a bit of an odd concept and may not even be recognised as a real thing by some dermatologists. So does skin actually 'purge' (i.e. break out) with new products before improving? It's possible, and more likely to happen with ingredients that increase skin cell turnover (e.g. exfoliants, peels, retinol and yes, vitamin C). Any pimples that were forming will basically speed up their emergence because you're basically pressing fast-forward on your skin cells' life cycle. It should die down very quickly, after the first so-called 'purge'. Hence, it's possible that Klairs' Vitamin C Serum could cause purging, even though it's a gentle formulation. Try introducing it gradually into your routine, and if the 'purge' is persistent, well then - it might just be plain old zits or a skin reaction. You can rule out the last option if you patch test first (that's why we always harp on about patch testing!).
When should I take Klairs vitamin C serum day or night?
There's no hard and fast rules for when you should apply a vitamin C serum, including the Klairs vitamin C serum. It'll work morning or night. With that being said, we always think it's better to apply it in the morning, because vitamin C (being an antioxidant) complements your SPF in protecting your skin from free radicals and UV damage.
Should I store Klairs vitamin C in the fridge?
Technically, there's no need to store Klairs Vitamin C Serum in the fridge as the formula is made with a stabilized form of vitamin C (hence, it comes in a clear rather than opaque bottle). This helps protects it from the oxidizing effects of heat. However, we always store ours in the fridge because eventually, all vitamin C serums oxidize, even stabilized formulas (albeit at a far slower rate). Particularly during a hot summer, you can notice the Klairs vitamin C serum get a lemon tinge. It'll still work fine at that colour, for what it's worth! But by popping it in the fridge, it'll last you for ages - which is useful if you're into skin cycling.
Is Klairs vitamin C serum good for beginners?
Klairs' Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop is an excellent option for beginners. Because it comes in a stabilized formula, you don't have to worry about storing it correctly. The concentration is a super gentle 5%, and the serum is also quite moisturising. It shouldn't burn or feel uncomfortable at all.
Is Klairs vitamin C drop good?
Klairs' Vitamin C Drop is one of the best-sellers in the Klairs range - it is that good! That's even with cult products like the Supple Preparation Toner and the Midnight Blue Calming Mask. It's simple and it works.
Can I use Klairs vitamin C everyday?
Klairs Vitamin C Seurm is gentle enough to use everyday. It only contains a 5% concentration of stabilized vitamin C, and is generally one of the options we suggest for those with sensitive skin.
Does vitamin C make acne worse?
Vitamin C can temporarily make acne worse because it is an active ingredient that speeds up your skin's cell turnover. Basically, any pimples that were about to emerge or were cooking underneath your skin will come up more quickly! But, this is generally only temporary. Vitamin C is actually a great ingredient for treating acne, and past any initial purge (which, by the way, only happens to a lucky few), should eventually reduce breakouts and treat acne scars.
What should you not mix with vitamin C?
Vitamin C should not be mixed with any other active ingredient if you have sensitive skin. Using one active ingredient at a time is usually the way to go. However, if your skin is hardy and you're an expert at layering, you can combine vitamin C with retinol, niacinamide, arbutin and bakuchiol. Just avoid the acid exfoliants like AHAs and BHAs - these are all standalone ingredients.
Is Dear Klairs vitamin C effective?
Dear Klairs' Vitamin C Drop is highly effectve at brightening and protecting your skin from oxidization - don't be fooled by it coming in a clear bottle! The vitamin C is stabilized to promote its longevity, but it is just as effective as regular vitamin C.
