I used to work at Clarins and was there for over ten years, so I know this product very well… or I should say, all its previous reincarnations – or ‘generations’ as they’re called. This new Clarins Double Serum Hydric + Lipidic Serum is the latest reformulation of this cult anti-aging classic. Clarins tend to bring out a new generation Double Serum every three years, which means they are always making sure they’re ahead of the anti-ageing game. This is one of their hero products and as I’ve said, they’re always working on improving the formula.
I’ve been using the previous formula for the past three years (on and off) and always love the results it gives, so I was really interested to try this new ‘improved’ version.
Clarins Double Serum has always been an age control serum, with two anti-ageing fluids in one product. The two serums are separated in the bottle and come together when they are pumped out. You then blend them together between your hands, before applying the mixture to your face.
Within this newest version there’s a dial that allows you to control the dosage it dispenses, making the amount personalised to you. I’ve been using the smaller dosage as I find it better suited to my skin’s needs at this time of year. The larger dose is more of a ‘power shot’ for dry skin or normal skin during the harsh winter months.
This wonder product has over 20 different plant extracts including Tumeric to help fight wrinkles, fine lines and boost radiance.
I have seen results after using this daily for 7 days (morning and night) – my skin is noticeably brighter and smoother, especially the mornings.
This is a solid winner in my opinion and exactly what my skin needs now that fine lines have started to appear around my face. Clarins Double Serum is sold in two sizes 30ml (£57) and 50ml (£75), and is available from their website as well as all department stores including John Lewis and Debenhams.
