Next Generation: Clarins Double Serum

12 Sep

Hi beauties! I hope you’re enjoying the fall so far. 🍂

Earlier this year, I attended a Clarins beauty event to introduce the next generation of Clarins’ Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate.

This serum, which has been around since 1985, continuously ranks as one of the best-selling anti-aging serums due to its double formula with water-soluble (hydric) and oil-soluble (lipidic) plant ingredients.

What’s new about this version of Double Serum? Clarins has added new ingredients to the formula and created a new delivery system for the 8th edition of the serum.

Bio-inspired Formula

Double Serum contains over 20 powerful plant extracts (including white tea and avocado) that mix together to stimulate the skin’s vital functions like nutrition, oxygenation, and protection. Among the plants, nine are organic and three come from fair trade.

The new generation of Double Serum now includes teasel extract to minimize the look of fine lines and organic leaf of life extract to boost skin hydration. But the star ingredient in this version of Double Serum is turmeric (yes, that’s a container of delicious turmeric in the photo).

You may already be spicing up your cooking with turmeric. The plant extract, called turmerone, improves cell communication in the skin for added radiance.

Double-Pump System

It’s always good to see beauty brands designing products so that we get the right dose for maximum product efficacy. The updated dual-chamber bottle lets you twist the top to release either a larger or a smaller drop, each containing the perfect ratio of both hydric and lipidic component.

If you have oily skin, for example, or want to use less during the day, switch the dial to the smaller drop. If you have dry skin or want to amp up the serum at night, turn the dial to the larger drop.

I’ve been using the serum, which is an amber-colored oil and gel mix, twice a day and it penetrates quickly without feeling greasy. I’m even more excited with the results, which so far include better hydration and fresher more radiant-looking skin. 💕

Hi beauties!

Yesterday, I was extremely fortunate to attend a beauty event hosted by Clarins.

The event took place at the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel on Vancouver’s waterfront, where a special lunch was served (the salad even included some of the key ingredients in one of Clarins’ skincare launches).

During the lunch, Clarins presented a video highlighting the next generation of their Double Serum product.

Here are some of the other releases from Clarins that you’ll be able to check out this coming fall:

Clarins Spring Eye Makeup

Clarins Spring Eye Launches

Hi beauties!

I don’t know how beauty brands anticipate makeup trends so far in advance, but Clarins has been bang on so far.

Earlier this spring, I had a look at the Clarins Limited Edition Face Contouring Palette that features a more subtle way to contour.

Clarins’ eye makeup launches have also tapped into a couple of new trends: grey as an all-season neutral and multiple looks with eyeliner.

Clarins 4-Colour Eyeshadow Palette (Smokey)

This iconic eyeshadow palette comes with easy-to-apply charcoal grey shades that are long-lasting and versatile (you can wear them dry or wet). The neutral range includes a white pearl, light grey, medium grey, and dark grey/black shade.

Enriched with mineral pigments, the formula contains carnauba powder to help make the eyeshadow comfortable to wear.

For a touch of luxury, the palette also comes in a signature red velvet sleeve with Clarins embossed on the front.

Clarins Limited Edition 4-Colour Pen

Like most writers (I work as a tech writer when I’m not blogging), I’ve always loved pens. ✒

When I saw Clarins 4-Colour Pen, it took me back to school days when everyone had to have a BIC ballpoint pen that let you switch to different colors.

Clarins is taking us down memory lane with a travel-friendly, mult-tasking makeup pen. Not only does the 4-Colour pen come with three shades for the eyes (blue, brown, black), it also includes a nude shade for lip contouring.

To use the pen, slide the colour you want to apply and twist the pen to lower the shade. The line that this pen creates is on the thick side, but it deposits the liner evenly. The colours work really nicely together. For example, you can apply black on the upper lid, and blue or brown on the lower lid for a more defined look.

If you love wearing eyeliner in different shades and hate sharpening or rough edges, this eyeliner is worth checking out. 💕
