Right people. I have NEVER fallen in love with a skincare product this quickly before.This was seriously love at first use. Get ready for the new Clarins Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate.
This is all about “When Two Become One” – sung in a Spice Girls Christmas number kind of way – I am trying to keep it festive here!!
Clarins Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate
Now I have only been using this for about a week but it is so good that I thought it was only fair to give you the low down. It feels amazing, smells amazing and instantly approves the appearance and radiance of my skin. Has that got you interested?
British Beauty Blogger, aka Jane, has been using is too (for over 3 weeks now) and she says she loves it more the longer she uses it. It is quite rare for her to get excited about skincare, and when I saw her recently, her skin was looking really good.
So here is what Clarins Double Serum is all about.
It works to reactivate the five vital skin functions which are slowed by age, environment and stress, and is effective on all the signs of ageing.
The formulation comprises both Hydric (water) and Lipidic (oil) systems which combine 20 of the most powerful known plant extracts. The 2 systems are contained in 2 separate vials to maintain the potency of the ingredients and ensure they can work together with no issues of incompatibility and instability.
It also contains Cangzhu, which is a Chinese herb which works to enhance the effectiveness of all the ingredients for faster anti-ageing results.
There are also 3 cutting edge actives to compliment the power of plants – double molecular weight hyaluronic acid and phytosphingosine to further stimulate the production of collagen and glycosaminoglycans. Plus, new generation peptide Survixyl IS protects stem cells in the epidermis against UV and environmental stress.
The Double pump system ensures the correct amount is dispensed which you then blend in your palms and apply to the face and neck…and then feel lovely and look lovely!!
There have been some amazing clinical trial results that show a 75% increase in hydration after 4 hours, increased absorption of nutrients and increased cellular oxygenation.
Also tests have shown that Clarins Double Serum increases the skin’s ability to protect itself, and resist oxidative stress by 140%, and also increases collagen creation by 915% (!!!).
Consumer tests indicated that there are skin improvements after the first application, with 4 weeks results showing less visible pores, more even complexion, firmer, more elastic skin and reduced wrinkles.
Obviously I am only a week in, and time will tell but I am very optimistic!!
The Clarins Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate costs £55 for 30mls and will be available from February 2013.
