VC Lotion
5.0
Created with Sketch.

I do see a small improvement with this vs my normal toner or plain water or even Vichy thermal water. (In terms of Vit C, the only thing I tried was the ohilosophy C powder but it hurts my skin to the point of a reaction, as I think it is too strong for my skin). Although Haba advises to layer this toner on 5 times, I do just once and apply a couple of drops of oil afterwards. There is a very slight tackiness afterwards, but the toner definitely feels light but hydrating enough combined with oil/light moisturizer. So I followed the Haba advice for a routine as closely as I could, and my skin was nearly rid of pimples or irritation and redness. I do sulfur De la Cruz ointment every few days as a 10 minute mask which dramatically improved my skin. Green clay mask (A. Vogel from any health food shop) on specific areas if need be. Daily there is: Cleanser with about 7 drops of tea tree oil added to the bottle. Toner for sensitive skin (muji). Lastly, a couple of drops only of oil which contains squalane (a bottle of Haba squalane, The Ordinary's hemi squalane, about 50 50 mix, and a few drops each of rose absolute oil, frankincense and myrrh essential oils). Extras: Avene emulsion or Haba CoQ10 oil, on drier areas, after letting the oil and toner sink in/blotted a bit. That is close to what Haba recommends on their website, just with different items. Result: good but...skin still prone to small clogged areas once in a while, or a couple of raised pimples, till I introduced this item. I think I have it down pat now, as this is actually helping fade the reddish areas in a noticeable way. First by calming it down more and then by slightly taking down unevenness of texture. No reaction. The only time I had a raw/burning feeling again was from doing: 1. sulfur and clay masks 2. exfoliation with a 'face brush' 3. using a microfibre cloth to remove makeup. 4. Toner/oil 5. philosophy vit C booster powder mixed into moisturizer! Basically clarifying masks then exfoliation and Vit C overkill all at once. Of course that was damaging. My point being that this VC toner might not be good to use after having used clarifying skincare or exfoliants that day. I use muji toning water now, if I did clay/sulfur mask that day, as it is so gentle. This seems to be working wonderfully. It's been about 2 weeks.

This is better for me than the plain one. That one causes breakouts for me but this doesn't. This seems to feel more moisrurizing too. I use it in my body lotion, on face and on hair with leave in conditioner. There are days I can just use this around eyes and mouth and not need other moisturizing. A useful item.

I have no idea why I had never reviewed (or maybe I have never used) VC Lotion? Well I was just at the Asian supermarket and found this! I have been having really dry skin from the harsh winter (Oh Canada!) and really need something to moisturise as I can see all fine lines on my forehead and eyes. As a fan of HABA, I can't believe I didn't think of their product line... Out of sight, out of mind! I've always loved their Squalene products for the longest time and now will start to incorporate more of their stuff into my regime especially as I am also getting older and my skin has changed.
