I am actually surprised that I have never written about Clarins’ HydraQuench range as it is one of my favourites and I have been using it since last winter.
I have a HydraQuench Intensive Serum Bi-Phase and HydraQuench Cream SPF 15.
HydraQuench Intensive Serum Bi-Phase (£40 for 30 ml)
This is actually one of the best products for dehydrated and/or dry skin I have ever tried. With the key ingredients such as: Hyaluronic acid, Katafray extract, Sorbier bud extract, Inca peanut extract and Chondrus crispus extract (red algae) it works miracles!
By miracle I mean that you can see immediate results, this serum helps stimulate skin’s natural moisturisation process. It battles all the drynesses, flakiness and tightness, leaving the skin hydrated, plumped, soft and smooth.
Bi-Phase serum smells nice, takes seconds to absorb and does not leave a greasy or oily residue. It is now my skincare essential whenever my skin needs a little help, which is quite often in winter.
I could not sing enough praises to this product. In fact, I have finished my first bottle and the second one, which I’ve got during the sales, is on it’s way to me!
HydraQuench Cream SPF 15 (£33.50 for 50 ml)
Now I really wish I’d buy this cream without SPF, as I could also use it as a night cream, too. What was I thinking about? But regardless, it is a fantastic product.
It comes in a blue toned glass jar that looks very luxurious and the formula does deliver!
My favourite thing about this cream that you can see results straight away, after the first application, the skin doesn’t feel as tight and dry, as mine does during the cold season. It absorbs quickly and leaves the skin hydrated and supple. I would even say that it looks radiant! And after some time I can definitely see the improvement in my skin condition in general. I would definitely re-purchase this cream but without SPF this time.
Active ingredients are: Hyaluronic acid, Katafray bark, Sorbier tree bud, Vitamin E, E3P Complex, UVA/UVB filters.
Clarins actually have HydraQuench products for oily and dehydrated skin, too!
And I personally plan to get the mask from the range at some point, as I have high hopes for it.
In general, I’d say that HydraQuench is very effective and not very expensive (for what you get and compared to other luxury products) and I am pleased with the results.
