Update: I've noticed after the two/three weeks I've tested this product out that when I don't use it every day or every other day, my skin craves it. It's extremely dry and my nose is super flakey. This serum really does soak in all my moisture, but this serum works best with the hydra-essentiel cream (or any other moisturizer). It's like a booster for your moisturizer to lock everything in. I feel like this serum isn't as fragrant as the cream, which I actually like the cream's scent because its super fresh.
I thought the texture of this serum because its so light, it feels like water almost, wouldn't work but it does. I am planning on buying a full size because my nose needs it especially with this awful winter weather. If you're looking for a product to really hydrate your dry spots on your face, this is this trick.
When I received this serum, I was skeptical that it would make much of a difference. I have tried so many products and always seem to be let down. Well was I in for a surprise. This serum is incredible! I have suffered most of my life with dry patchy skin. While some products have helped some and taken away some of the dryness for a time, I was still always left with red patches that had a different texture then the rest of my skin. Changes in temperatures, humidity and other environmental factors effects my skin. After a week of using this, my red patches for the first time in more years then I can count are barely noticeable (still slightly pink, but no more angry red) and I have had no flaking!
This serum just melts into your skin(unlike so many I have tried that seem to just sit on your skin, and some were even more then twice this price).The minute I put it on I can feel the moisture going into my skin. It is almost a cooling sensation when applied for me. Been using the hydra quench moisturizer after and it just seems to look in the moisture. Not only has this helped with my dryness, I've noticed a difference some of my fine lines since this has plumped my skin from adding the moisture back I was missing. My skin has a natural glow to it now.
I have already ordered the full size bottle. I can't imagine not having this now. This is my holy grail serum now. Can't wait to see how much better my skin can get if it's already made this big of a difference in only a week. Thank You Clarins for such an amazing product. Looking forward to trying more items from this line.
This serum is bi-phase, which means it's separated in the bottle; you have to give it a gentle shake or stir to blend the ingredients. It's tinted blue in the bottle, but it applies clear. Unfortunately, like the other Hydra-Essentiel products I've tried, it has a strong smell. The fragrance is a watery floral and it's noticeable for a short while after you apply the product.
The serum has a very thin, watery texture. When you rub it in, it's super-smooth and glides across the skin. It reminds me of a lot of silicone-heavy makeup.
While that sounds nice, I had a terrible time with this product. The first time I used it, my skin started to burn after a few minutes. I thought maybe my skin was just extra-sensitive that day, so I took a break and tried it again later that week. I had the same result: it always stung my face for a few minutes. Unfortunately, it also didn't hydrate my skin; in fact, it seemed to try me out a little more.
