When Barneys reached out to me to introduce this innovation, I was excited! Upon first use, I fell in love with the simplicity of the packaging, consistency and efficacy. I started using this in late August, and I can confidently say that it has checked all of the boxes for me and surpassed any expectations I had for a vitamin c product.

What is it?

Vitabric C12 is a Korean beauty innovator. They focus all their products around the star antioxidant Vitamin C. The Vitabrid C12 Brightening Powder is a powder that releases the vitamin over the course of 12-hours upon application.


In the morning, after I’ve cleansed my face, I pour a dime size amount of Vitabrid C12 in my palm and one pump of my favorite AM moisturizer EltaMD AM Therapy, mix them together, and then press into my face and neck. I follow with SPF daily, I use EltaMD UV Clear.

What are the results?

The claims are brighter, firmer, and healthier complexion. Now, I can’t say this alone is responsible for my much healthier skin, but it is definitely one of the factors. Between this, and my religious use of AHAs, BHAs and Retinoids as well as daily application of SPF, my acne post inflammatory scars have almost disappeared. I’ve also noticed that any current acne that would normally leave a nasty purple mark behind has been more of a soft shadow that’s left behind. I’ve also practiced major discipline on not picking my acne, so that also helps so much with scarring. Hands down, this product keeps my skin firm, smooth and bright!

Will I repurchase?

The answer is yes! I actually have been testing out Deciem’s silicon suspended vitamin c as well, and I dislike the feeling it leaves on the skin. It feels clogging and occlusive and it definitely stings as the vitamin is at a high percentage of 20%+. I am very low on the Vitabrid and I am actually going to place an order so I can restock. I can’t go a day without it!

Where can I find it?

You can find it at Barneys and it retails for $60. I think that’s a fair price, and compared to something like C-Firma, even though I loved C-Firma and thought it was a great product, I didn’t see the dramatic change and results as I did with the Vitabrid. It’s sad, but it’s true.
