Review: Clarins HydraQuench Cream

1 Comment 27 September 2012

As the weather gets colder, I’ve found it necessary to up my moisturising game. After a long (and probably exhausting for her) talk with the beauty therpaist at Gatwick’s Duty Free, I settled on Clarins HydraQuench Cream.

£33.50

 

Clarins HydraQuench Cream is for normal to dry skins (isn’t that everyone?) and it has SPF 15. This is the first time I’ve considered SPF when buying face cream; let’s put it down to getting older.

The beauty of Clarins HydraQuench is that it can be used as a day or night cream. I initially bought it as a night cream but as the weather continues to get colder, I’ve found my usual Clarins cream– Hydra-Matte – doesn’t leave my skin feeling as moisurised as I’d like so I’m using the HydraQuench in the morning also.

Your skin looks and feels ‘creamed’ but doesn’t feel weighed down. I recommend leaving it on your face for five minutes before applying primer and foundation so it has to chance to really settle into your skin.

If you like a lighter feel on your face the HydraQuench range comes in a variety of finishes (is that the right word?) – a gel, a rich cream and a mixture of the two.

The Clarins website has an interesting video showing how you should apply your moisturiser; did you know you should pat it on and not rub it in?

    Did you warm it in your hand first? And then lay it on your face nose-cheeks-sides of face and neck? Coming back and pressing it in to the skin? Also you might want to invest in the HydraQuench Serum Bi-Phase. It works well in conjunction with the Hydra Quench cream.
