If you’ve ever wished that you could get the serum (a.k.a. “essence”) infused in sheet masks on its own, this is pretty much it.
Eau de Claire Beauty Serum is a big bottle (200ml!) of the serum that’s in the Clear Turn White Mask Vitamin C (do read my ‘Best Pick’ review of it here). Very economical and very good at doing what it’s supposed to do — afterall, it’s the exact same (minus the Bemliese sheet and packaging).
I have no particular complaints — this is all very good indeed — straightforward formula (no alcohols, silicones, oils, extracts, or fragrance), a blend of stable vitamin C and moisture-binding agents to give skin a brightening and hydration boost. I just find this to be impractical and lacklustre. Applying it as a serum didn’t pack much of a punch compared to the sheet mask or typical vitamin C serums (in little bottles). And since a 5-pack of the Clear Turn White Mask (22ml per sheet) retails only 650 JPY, making my own sheet mask with it isn’t worth my time or effort whatsoever. (When you do the math, the Eau de Claire Beauty Serum is only cheaper per ml by 0.9 JPY! Factor in you also need to buy the cotton sheets, it’ll actually cost you more to DIY!)
I think it’s perfect for those who want an affordable vitamin C serum to use on their arms, décolletage, and other large sun-exposed areas. For those who want to DIY their own sheet masks with it, I’d say just get the ready-made Clear Turn White Mask Vitamin C.
