Do you find that your skin feels much drier in Winter? Mine does and to help combat that dry feeling on our faces, Clarins and Clinque have released these new extra hydrating face moisturisers that are as different as they can be, as one is a gel and one is a really rich thick cream but they both soak in a treat!
Clinque’s new Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator (RRP$60) gives your face a much needed burst of intense hydration and it feels deliciously rich on the skin but not heavy, my skin totally soaked it up. Unlike other rich moisturisers that can be too heavy on your skin and leave you a bit glowy for daytime wear, this one doesn’t leave you with that shiny look because it sinks in pretty quickly. It promises 24 hour hydration and is a great base for any foundation for all day wear. As with all Clinque products, they are fragrance free – massive bonus for me – and I didn’t experience any sort of irritation. Clinque also give the tip that you can layer Blushwear Creamstick over the top to create a really subtle creamy flushed cheeks look to your face.
The Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator is available now at Clinique Counters nationwide or at Clinique’s website.
And then there’s Clarin’s new Hydra Quench Cream-Gel for super face hydration (RRP$70). The gel based cream feels like the skin soaks it up instantly, with it zipping down immediately on the express elevator to the dermis layers of our skin. The dreamy gel texture leaves the skin feeling refreshed and hydrated in such an invisible way. Featuring katafray extract and hyaluroniic acide to help ensure optimal hydration alongside extracts of alpine willow herb and pomegranate to promote a fresh, matte appearance. This product is dermatologist tested and is non-comedogenic which means it doesn’t block our pores which can create pimples from too much hydration which I’m wont to do!
The Hydra Quench range also comes with a Hydra Quench Moisture Replenish Lip Balm (RRP$36) and Hydra Quench Cream Mask for Dehydrated Skin (RRP$62), all available now, for your nearest stockist call 02-9663 4277 or visit Clarins’ website.
Get your hydration on.
