A deluxe 10ml mini size of Brightening Berry Vitamin C Facial Oil. Reveal your most radiant skin yet with this lightweight and transformative facial oil powered by antioxidant rich goji berry, brightening plant botanicals like rosehip oil and sea buckthorn oil, and an advanced form of Vitamin C and Vitamin E. 

This potent blend evens skin tone, targets dark spots, and supports collagen production for visibly brighter and firmer skin.

A brightening and firming facial oil with antioxidant rich goji berry and tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, a stabilized and powerful Vitamin C that:
  • Addresses hyperpigmentation, dark spots and uneven skin tone
  • Supports elasticity and firmness of the skin
  • Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Stabilized Vitamin C + Vitamin E 
  • Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, a stable Vitamin C: powerfully brightens, reduces hyperpigmentation, and firms the skin.
    Vitamin E: maximizes the effectiveness of Vitamin C while protecting against environmental stressors.
Antioxidant Rich Plant Botanicals
  • Goji Berry: delivers nutrients to support firmness and elasticity in the skin. Goji berries have been used extensively in Traditional Chinese Medicine and known for being high in Vitamin C and antioxidants to support the body.
  • Elderberry: fights free radical damage to combat the appearance of fine lines.
  • Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil: hydrates the skin and supports skin repair.
  • Rosehip Oil: evens skin tone and hyperpigmentation.
Ideal for all skin types. Especially beneficial for those dealing with hyperpigmentation, dark spots or uneven skin tone or with skin that has been dulled by environmental stressors, lifestyle, or daily stress.

Non-comedogenic and formulated with blemish prone & sensitive skin in mind.

Why Tetrahexyldecyl (THD) Ascorbate versus Other Forms of Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is a beloved skincare ingredient because of its well studied benefits like targeting hyperpigmentation, neutralizing free radicals and preserving collagen. 
What’s important to note when selecting a Vitamin C product is that there are multiple forms of Vitamin C, and not all forms act the exact same way. Many forms tend to oxidize quickly, which means their chemical structure is prone to change when exposed to oxygen, thus resulting in lower efficacy over time. We selected THD Ascorbate because it’s a far more stable form of Vitamin C, meaning it does not easily lose potency in neutralizing free radicals, supporting collagen production and evening skin tone when compared to other popular forms of Vitamin C.

Brightening Berry Vitamin C Facial Oil’s waterless concentrate form allows it to maximize nutrients delivered in each drop. The Vitamin C we selected, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, is oil soluble which allows our formulation to more readily penetrate into the skin than a water based formulation through the intercellular matrix. 

Because of this unique oil delivery, Vitamin C works with the Vitamin E within the skin matrix to maximize results. Along with other antioxidant-rich lipid-soluble ingredients like rosehip and sea buckthorn oil, this powerful combination of ingredients can more effectively combat free radicals that damage the skin.

All of the oils in Brightening Berry Vitamin C are biocompatible and non-comedogenic. They supply the skin with essential moisture without clogging pores and provide the perfect base for facial massage.

Warm a few drops of Brightening Berry Vitamin C with your palms, and massage into damp skin after essence. Bring down to the neck and decolletage. Can be used both day and night. Follow with sunscreen in your morning routine. 

Pair with any of the Mount Lai facial tools for a luxurious face massage that enhances penetration into the skin, addresses adhesions in underlying fascia, and relaxes tense muscles.

So for all my sensitive skinned folks out there, I was worried that this oil- like so many other serums I’ve tried at night - would make me break out/ clog my pores. I don’t think I can live without this facial oil! Not only does it not cause breakouts, but my skin looks amazing in the morning. Bright and healthy and glowey. It’s also helping with my hyperpigmentation which I know it says it does but I didn’t expect much in that area. I’ve used the oil with my gua sha every night for the past two weeks and it has changed my whole evening routine. Definitely recommend if you’re looking for a brightening serum

I purchased the amethyst gua

I purchased the amethyst gua sha and the small bottle of the berry facial oil as I wasn’t sure how my sensitive skin would react. I love it ! The smell is lovely and light and not overpowering at all. The gua sha has a nice weight to it. Very satisfied with both and will be trying the serum next

My absolute favorite face serum!

My absolute favorite face serum! It smells sooo good, I love using it in the morning. The results have my face glowing!

Holy grail product, for real

Bought the mini size to try after I finished my jar of the herbal repair serum/balm. I loved that but was intrigued by the vitamin C in this oil - I hadn't ever found a vitC product I really loved - and the reviews for this were great.

HOLYYYY CRAP my skin has brightened and evened out so much in just the week I've been using this. It also smells absolutely incredible. Like fresh strawberries. Can't wait to keep seeing better and better results. Oh and yes it does help the stone glide nicely!

Love love love

I need to order a bigger bottle. I love this stuff. I recently started doing the routine with a gua sha daily and wow.

This ks my 2nd time

This ks my 2nd time ordering and i recieved all my items both times. My order arrive promplty and quickly with tracking. I have the small bottle and wanted one that wasn't so big as the original and luckily mount lai came out with this size. Its perfect size for travel and works amazing. Keeps my face moisturize without clogging my pores or creating acne since i jave sensitive skin. Love the frangrant oil as well - bright citrus smell imo that eventually fades in case you don't like the smell.

Why It Works

Mount Lai tools are designed to work on the lymphatic system, address adhesions in the fascia and melt tension in the facial and jaw muscles, promoting a radiant complexion + combatting fine lines and wrinkles.

01 / Why is lymphatic drainage important? The lymphatic system is a part of the immune system that helps the body get rid of toxins and waste. ...

02 / The benefits of lymphatic drainage are two-fold. Lymphatic drainage removes toxic and congestive substances from the tissues, which allows greater absorption of nutrients. ...

03 / Why is using a tool better than using your hands? The beauty of Mount Lai tools is that they work on the skin without pulling. As a result, the tool is able to work on the very surface level of the skin to target the lymph system and fascia that you wouldn’t be able to target with your hands. ...
