Clarins have launched their New Hydra-Essential range.
This range is designed for dull, dry skin and promises to “reactivate the skins self-hydrating power”. What the hell does that mean?
Clarins researchers have travelled the world to find the answer to locking in the skins hydration for all skin types. In Madagascar they found the answer: The leaf of life also known as Kalanchoe.
This leaf is able to retain water despite the environment and extreme temperature changes and has been extracted into their new range to do exactly that to our skin. The range has a variation of textures for all skin type to battle all thermic shocks such as heat, cold, air con and pollution.
After my skin consultation by the lovely Clarins ambassadors, I was given free samples to try. The samples are a reasonable size and good enough for you to test the real effect it will have on your skin all day long. Trust me you will want to invest in this once you’ve had your free sample
My skin is dry to normal and I am constantly trying new creams and innovations to give my skin the quench it craves.
The day cream is light to apply and pressed into the skin can feel almost sticky. After a few minutes it sinks beautifully into the skin leaving it hydrated and so smooth!
You use the serum after you apply the cream. Wearing this alone, you don’t have to wear make up. I was so impressed with how soft and hydrated my skin was. The best thing was that it lasted all day!
Also, I was given a sample of Gel Sorbet Cooling gel. I really do not know how to say how impressed I am at this product. You can see by my photo that it a gel based liquid. It’s very fluid. You can apply this cream to the face. As you apply, the particles break up, making it feel like your applying water.
The cooling texture is amazing and I cannot wait to try this in the summer.
On a final note, the range is made up of the skin cream with and without SPF, The Hydra-Essential Bi-Phase Serum, The Milky lotion, Gel Sorbet and the ONLINE Exclusive Rich cream made for very dry skin.
