New? I just just hear some of you squeak. This isn’t new! Clarins has had the Hydraquench range for years!
2 years to be exact. I still use the Hydraquench Cream Mask and it still never ceases to amaze me how it just disappears into my skin when its feeling dry and sits on top of my skin when it isn’t. It does a pretty good job of hydrating skin and I like using it after a purifying mask. I also complained previously that the rather popular Hydraquench Smoothing Gel did not quite do it for me. So there’s now a product called Cream-Melt that is a lightweight cream that melts on the skin. Something heavier for picky people like me :P
So yes… they still look the same as the “old” Hydraquench but its been improved so it performs better :)
Still featuring Katafray extract as the key ingredient, and with the introduction of our old friend Hyaluronic Acid, Hydraquench, as the name implies, is a hydrating skincare range from Clarins. I can vouch for the improvement in the Hydraquench Intensive Serum Bi-phase in that it no longer has as strong a scent and it seems to absorbs more quickly. The previous formula while doing an excellent job, smelt too strongly of jasmine for my liking.
Oh and there’s a new packaging too. Its all very subtle but if you compare the photos of these products featured here to the old packaging here, you will notice a difference. If you are new to the range, don’t worry about it. Packaging is not a determination of a products’ efficacy :)
Is anyone out there a Clarins Hydraquench user? Or a frequenter of the Clarins facials? I’ve been for the facials a few times but for some very strange reason, I can never fall asleep during the facials. There is always so much activity going on – massaging of the face, of your arms and legs and although my skin likes it (no extractions FTW!) I think my mind is just too distracted by everything going on, to relax. You?
Clarins Hydraquench is available at all Clarins counters and Facial Institutes and the Intensive Serum Bi-Phase retails for RM200/30ml, HydraQuench Cream-Gel at RM180/30ml and HydraQuench Cream-Melt at RM180/30ml
