Sometimes, as Clarins will tell you, 2 is better than 1. Such is the fact in the new Clarins Double Serum with its Hydric + Lipidic (oil and water) system. Each bottle of Clarins Double Serum comes with the two products separated, only to be combined in the “Golden Ratio” with each pump.
This Double Serum is a step up from Clarins’ anti-aging serums (which this is) and has been made to be used by anyone from age 25 and up. The previous incarnation Double Serum Generation 6 was targeted at women in their 40s, which might explain why few of us have come across it yet *ahem*! 😉
Here are some of the previous incarnations of this serum which started out as literally a double serum in two separate bottles, only to be combined in future formulations. They were all targeted at older skins though, until the 2012 version.
The Double Serum targets 5 skin functions – Skin Nutrition (suppleness and tone), Cellular and Skin Oxygenation (radiance and luminosity), Fiber and Skin Regeneration (firmness and elasticity), Fiber and Skin Protection (prevention of fine lines and wrinkles) and Skin Hydration (softness and comfort).
Quite a tall order for just one bottle of serum, wouldn’t you agree? What I do quite like about the serum is the lightness in the texture. Despite it being 1/3 oil based, once mixed with the 2/3 water based part, it is not sticky nor oily at all. It absorbs quickly into skin without making it feel uncomfortable and taut.
Another nice thing is how light and hydrating it felt on skin. I don’t quite like serums that have too silicone a feel, so this one is a nice change. Its light, it feels lovely and with regular use, its supposed to make your skin look better. Who doesn’t want that eh? 😛
I haven’t tried this one out yet, only on my hand so far. Would be interesting to see how it fares won’t it?
There is a new Lifting Line Smoother facial treatment available at Clarins Skin Spas that use the Double Serum and is an anti-aging facial. I tried it and although it felt comfortable product wise, I wasn’t too happy with the therapist so I didn’t quite enjoy it as much as I should. Pity. I was all ready to sign up for a package 😛
There are samples available at Clarins counters I believe if you’d like to pick them up and have a go. Apparently, you are able to see glowy skin right off the bat, as in right the next morning! I haven’t tried it so I don’t know but if I do, you’ll know about it 😉
Does the Double Serum interest you? Have you tried previous incarnations or the anti-aging skincare range from Clarins?
This product does interest me, truth be told. I’m not quite sold on all the claims, but I like the texture of the product. The oil-water combination is very comfortable on skin and if it does do everything it says, why not eh? I could do with some anti-aging 😉
