A measured dose of skin-loving goodness is nothing new in beauty, but a potent new vitamin C shot is. New from Clinique a booster that promises smoother skin and fewer brown spots in just seven days. Editor Trudi Brewer sets her timer.
Antioxidants rule when it comes to age-erasing ingredients, but one that delivers serious results is notoriously tricky to stabilise in beauty formulations – ascorbic acid or vitamin C. Found in day creams, serums, and even cleansers, this anti-ageing power player seems to be everywhere, but by the time you apply it to your skin it has often lost its potency. Until now. A clever innovation from Clinique means you can add a fresh shot of clarity-giving vitamin C to your daily moisturiser and benefit from its full potency every time. Intrigued? Me too, so I took the Fresh Pressed Daily Booster with Pure Vitamin C seven-day challenge. And the results are awesome.

What's in it?
Clinique Fresh Pressed Daily Booster contains 10 percent pure vitamin C powder, which is isolated in a chamber to protect its full potency until you want to use it. Best in class for giving ageing, sun-damaged skin a radiant boost, once blended with molasses extract it further smoothes and brightens this skin. Aided by a botanical cocktail of lightening ingredients, including mulberry and grapefruit extracts and another gold-standard skin-clarifier salicylic acid sucrose, betaine, algae extract and caffeine you can expect brilliant results.
How do you use it?
Fresh Pressed is designed to be mixed with your usual moisturiser to power up your daily skincare routine. Simply press a button and the vitamin C shot is delivered fresh to work its magic. No waste, no fuss. I chose to mix it with my morning moisturiser, before applying sunscreen. And evening with a hydrating night cream.
I love a skincare product that mixes science and nature and the benefits of this potent vitamin C shot are almost instant. I always want a simple routine that delivers results. First up, I noticed my skin looked much brighter, so I’m packing on less concealer to cover the brown spots around my eyes. I'm ok with a few wrinkles but I want healthy-looking skin that has that lit-from-within glow. Fresh Pressed has left my skin looking luminous even under light make-up, and I don't feel I need to apply a cosmetic mask to cover my pigmentation. In short, Clinique Fresh Pressed Daily Booster with Pure Vitamin C is my new BFF!
