Review: Vitacreme B12

I’ve been using this cream for a month now, and here is my review ?

How I use this cream?

I use it as my night cream, replacing SK-II skin refining treatment. After face wash, I wipe my face with Beauty de Kose Ultimation Clear Softener, a fantastic product to prevent clogged pores. Then, I apply my toner and Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion. After the lotion dries up, I apply Vitacreme B12 as the final step.

The texture of this cream is very smooth and light. It is pink in color, and it has a light floral scent. Quite a pleasant smell, I would say. It works best when we massage the cream onto our face. I found the step-by-step massage technique from the internet to share with you.

This cream can also be used as day cream or make-up base. I tried using it during the day, but it tends to make my skin feels greasy after a few hours. Perhaps, it’s due to my oily skin. Thus, I stopped using it as day cream and I only use it at night.

After using this cream for the first week, I had a mini break-out! I spotted three zits near my chin area. I couldn’t be sure whether it is due to the cream or my menstruation. As a result, I stopped using it until my menstruation was over and the zits are cleared.

Two weeks later, I gave it a second try. This time, I only use it at night. I’ve been using it consistently as my night cream for one month now. I’m glad to say that I see visible improvement in skin smoothness, hydration and elasticity. Fine lines are gradually diminished too. It didn’t break me out this time.

I love the feeling after I wash my face in the morning. My skin feels so soft and dewy. It is a wonderful moisturizer, it really hydrates my skin. However, if I were to compare this cream to SK-II skin refining treatment, this cream doesn’t help much in shrinking my pores.

All in all, I feel that this Swiss product really worth a try. Considering the many benefits that it can offer, this cream is only priced at SGD40+. Very affordable. As I only use it once a day, one tube can lasts me for at least 4 months. I will continue to use it in long-term, hopefully I can see more dramatic improvements on my skin.

Beauty Find: Vitacreme B12

Special thanks to SY for recommending this highly raved face cream in her blog recently. This face cream is called Vitacreme B12; it’s a product formulated in Switzerland and it has been raved in various Japanese, Korean and Taiwanese magazines. It gained popularity in 2007 when a Japanese celebrity featured it in her book, admitting that it’s her secret weapon for having young and beautiful skin.

SY also suggested that I can find this product from the oversea spree in SMH forum. I managed to find the spree organizer, who purchases this cream direct from UK at a price of $42.70 (including shipping). I couldn’t believe that the price is so affordable. However, I was a little late. The spree was closed by the time I saw it. Anyway, I sent an e-mail to her to try my luck. I was holding my breath and hoping that she’ll reply to me that she has excess stocks.

Much to my surprise, she really had an extra tube and she was willing to sell it to me. Without hesitation, I quickly transferred $42.70 into her bank account. One week later, Daddy V picked up a nicely-packed package in the postbox for me. I darted a glance at it, and it was my Vitacreme B12! I was overly-excited as I didn’t expect it to arrive so soon.

If you are wondering what the hype is about, let me furnish you with more information about this beauty cream –

It helps to regenerate, nourish and moisture skin tissues with its deep penetration capability. The benefits of this cream are as follow:

1. Stimulates renewal of skin cells

2. Hydrates and Softens skin tissues

3. Regains and Improves elasticity and firmness

4. Diminishes age lines and existing wrinkles

5. Helps to prevent premature wrinkles

6. Repairs and Rebalances the skin’s natural defense system

7. Relieves and Soothes chapped skin

8. Smoothes or Attenuates new or old scars

Sounds too good to be true but hey, it really worth a try since it is so inexpensive. This cream is recommended to be used as a night cream, but it may also be used as a day cream or make-up base.

I just started using this cream so I haven’t seen any significant results yet. The texture of this cream is very light and not oily at all. It has a light floral scent but I’m not too fond of its smell. I use it as my night cream, replacing my SK-II skin refining treatment. I apply it after my toner and SK-II facial treatment essence. I love the feeling after I wash my face the next morning, my pores appear smaller and my face is well moisturized.

For mothers who have your hands full looking after your kids, this is the perfect all-in-one cream that you can try. You can save lots of time by skipping your essence, serum, moisturizer and make-up base as this cream does them all.

Sshhhh, let me tell you a secret. This spree organizer (nick: Chubby Jan) in SMH forum may be ordering this cream again. Please check out her BP here.
