Karuna Vitamin C Pearls

Clinique Fresh Pressed Daily Booster With Pure Vitamin C
Get the benefits of vitamin C without really having to change your skincare routine by simply adding this booster to your daily moisturizer.

True Botanicals Vitamin C Booster
Because most vitamin C starts to oxidize as soon as it’s put into a liquid, True Botanicals created this powder form. Instead of buying a whole new serum, just mix 2 to 3 shakes of this powder into your current serum before massaging into your skin. It also contains ferulic acid, which works hand in hand with vitamin C as a powerful antioxidant.
