Clarins HydraQuench Cream-Gel review
It is at this time of year in particular that I find myself drawn to moisturisers that feel just that - moisturised. Whether it's my skin or my hair that feels dry I like to indulge and get back that glow and great condition.
HydraQuench Cream-Gel from Clarins is one such product as it is a cooling gel with the efficacy of a cream. And I love it! I use it as a daily moisturiser and it works with keeping my skin soft while feeling cool and refreshed. It is totally non-oily which I also love and is perfect for my skin which tends to be normal/combination.
It contains Katafrey extract which is exclusive to Clarins products, which helps reinforce my skin's natural brier. Hyaluronic acid helps add more moisture and my skin does look smooth and matte. It also has Alpine willow herb and pomegranate extract which is great for tightening up pores and apparently has an extra complex to help fight of the harmful effects of pollution in the air - though how I know this for sure I don't know!
I have been using it morning and evening and my skin looks good even when I wake up so it's obviously doing something right. This is a light cream perfect for summer days with skin that is not too dry.
Clarins HydraQuench Cream-Gel is £33.50 for 50ml.
