Its the first time ever I have tried the famous Clarins Double Serum and after usinf for one week I could see my skin was glowing and a lot softer. I really struggle with dehydrated skin and with my busy schedule I need all the help I can get. It truly gives me the hydration I need. I love love serums they are such an important part of my beauty routine. Definitely a step I never miss out on. I have been wanting to try the Clarins Double Serum for quite some time so was so happy when it landed on my desk to try out. There’s been some mixed reviews on the serum by some big bloggers in the UK but I have to say I personally really like it. Its been re-invented a few times so I can’t say if its better than it was before.
Clarins sell the serum as an intensive anti-age serum with over 20 plant extracts that boosts the skin’s vital functions. Plus ensure a more youthful look and a radiant glowing complexion. They promise reduced wrinkles and fine lines but I am always sceptical about these promises. I have never found a product that really reduces and fine lines. The double serum definitely makes my skin look good and when I come to apply make up I have that gorgeous glow going on.
The serum is mineral based product that holds two different serums in seperate containers. Its lightweight and melts into skin on application. It is perfumed but even though I am sensitive to smell I can actualy handle it. The double serum reactivates the skin’s 5 vital functions: protection, hydration, regeneration, nutrition, and oxygenation. Together, these functions work to boost* radiance, collagen production, and hydration while also fighting stress, aging effects, and pollution. It supposed to be for all skin types but if you have sensitive skin or oily skin it may not be for you.
1.Turmeric Extract – distinguished for its anti-aging properties.
2.Katafray extract and Hyaluronic Acid complex help to restore the skin’s water reserves for comfort and softness.
3.Kiwi extract boosts the skin’s nutrition for suppleness.
4.Pistachio extract help to reinforce skin’s barrier function for protection.
5.Extract of Maritime Pine and Organic Musk Rose oil help oxygenate the skin for increased radiance .
6.Extract of Organic Green Banana, Lemon Thyme and Bocoa help visibly reduce wrinkles and increase firmness.
Its definitely on the pricey side at R880 so its definitely not for eveyone. If you are like me and like to splash out on certain products then you may consider this one.
