I was recently introduced to the brand new Cle de Peau Key Radiance Care skincare range, which was quite interesting for me. I’d never used Cle de Peau skincare before this!
The Cle de Peau Key Radiance Care will be the basic skincare range, that addresses issues relating to skin radiance. What every woman wants right?
I haven’t yet tried it, as it’s just only been launched. But here’s a little beauty tidbit about it for you, in case it might be something you might be thinking of exploring :)
Cle de Peau Key Radiance Care unlocks skin radiance
The key to this Cle de Peau Key Radiance Care line is the concept that our skin has an intuitive ability to repair and defend itself. Also, our bodies are known to follow the circadian rhythm that controls our biological rhythms based on day and night time.
Recognizing this, Cle de Peau has enhanced their Skin-Empowering Illuminator to, as CdP says, boost Skin Intelligence, so it is able to repair and defend itself better, and also to improve the skin condition based on day and night-time rhythms. It is, as CdP calls it, the key to unlock your skin radiance from within.
The new Skin-Empowering Illuminator ingredient combines Platinum Gold Silk Extract, Japanese Pearl Extract (both of which balances the skin from good and bad stimuli), Theanine, Perilla Extract (both of which protects skin from damage) and Angelica Acutiloba Extract (keeps cellular energy high).
This combination of key ingredients addresses dryness and damage from UV rays, boosts skin resilience, and boosts cellular energy. This will then result in more radiant skin, which is what forms the core of the range.
In a nutshell, the Cle de Peau Key Radiance Care line boosts skin radiance and moisture, and is suitable for everyone from 25 upwards. That’s practically all of us!
There are 4 products in the range currently, which I’ll run through quickly below.
Cle de Peau Beaute – The Serum RM750 for 30ml, RM1,200 for 50ml
I deem The Serum to be the star product, and quite possibly, the product I’m most interested to try.
The Serum comes in 2 sizes – 30ml and 50ml. It is formulated to be used in the FIRST STEP of your skincare, after cleansing. I thought it was intriguing.
The Serum targets dryness, and they say that with prolonged use, skin will feel softer and smoother, more supple and more healthy.
It has a light, gel-like texture, that absorbs quickly and easily into the skin, and like most light gel textured products, does make skin feel instantly hydrated.
The Serum, I’m told, is the key that unlocks your skin, to allow for better product absorption. This is why it is the first product you apply.
I’ll take this one for a spin and let you know what I think about it! I think my interest has also partially to do with the price tag LOL! :P
Cle de Peau Hydro-Softening Lotion – RM470 for 170ml
The Hydro-Softening Lotion forms the second step in the Cle de Peau Key Radiance Care routine.
I view this rather like a moisturizing lotion, which is something found quite often in Japanese skincare lines. It has a more emollient feel, for a lotion, and targets dehydrated skin. It also smoothens rough skin and diminishes the look of pores for a more even, refined appearance.
They do recommend that you use a cotton pad with this, smoothing the product over skin, after The Serum.
Cle de Peau Protective Fortifying Emulsion – RM490 for 125ml
This is basically the day moisturiser. Japanese brands often use an emulsion for their moisturizers. I’m told a cream version also exists.
There is supposed to be UV protection in this product as well, although they don’t say how much. For this reason, I’d just take it with a pinch of salt, and use a sunscreen separately. But then, don’t you already do? :P
I find the texture of this one a little light. It has a milky emulsion texture, which sinks into skin nicely and comfortably. However, on my drier skin, I have a sneaky suspicion that it may not be enough. Still, I’ll try it and let you know!
Cle de Peau Intensive Fortifying Emulsion – RM550 for 125ml
The night moisturizer comes in the beautiful dark blue bottle. It too is a milky emulsion that sinks into skin easily.
It seems to be a bit of a multi-tasker, not only targeting fine lines, but also boosting skin strength and resilience, protecting skin from loss of hydration, repairing skin from the daily aggressors, and boosting radiance.
Cle de Peau Key Radiance – Luxury personified!
If you’re clutching your pearls at this point, having seen the price tags, believe me, you aren’t alone.
While I subscribe to the theory that you don’t have to pay top dollar for an effective skincare product, I am also aware that there are people who are willing to. To that I say, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.
My preference does lie towards science-based skincare that contain active ingredients, but it is not beyond me to try something that is a little more mainstream in its approach and selection of ingredients. I personally see nothing wrong in either approach – it’s all how we want to spend our money! :)
Have you tried any Cle de Peau skincare products?
I’ll report back in a few months about how I feel about the products, once I’ve been able to have a go. I know for a fact that The Serum is the one that has me most fascinated!
