My Experience :
I have been dying to share this product with you guys but I wanted to give it a full 4 week run before reviewing it.
I started using Clarins Double Serum almost a month back. It is a very soothing anti ageing serum and I love it. It is a light weight honey coloured serum that need to be warmed up between the palms and patted on the skin. The serum needs to be applied after the toner and before the moisturizer.
To give you a little info about my skin, I have pretty decent skin to start with. I have normal to dry skin and since I am 25+ I use anti-ageing products.
I use this serum every other night. I use 2-3 pumps of it and apply it on my face. It soaks up within seconds in my skin. Delhi is having the harshest of winters this year plus the blowers add up to the dry air. I wake up with soft and supple skin every morning when I use this serum at night. My pores look smaller and skin looks softer. And I haven’t experienced a single dry patch on my skin this winters. I don’t have any major fine lines as such so for me this is more of a prevention product than a cure product. It has a mild lovely fragrance that totally calms my senses. The serum has an oil like consistency but it is not one of those heavy greasy oils that clogs your pores. It is very light and rather soothing on the skin.
It is an expensive product but a little goes a long way.After one month of usage, I have not finished up even one fourth of the bottle.
The serum is packed in a sturdy plastic pump bottle. I even carried this bottle on my Goa trip and I have had no issues carrying it.
This serum is a part of my skin care routine. It helps in keeping my skin hydrated and nourished for the most part. I also used it in Goa at night to see how it worked in the summery weather. It was fine. It made my skin look great even then.
I have used some expensive anti ageing products in past also because of the strong formulations , they have broken me out. This has only worked at making my skin better. I didn’t have a single break out from the day I started using it.
I wouldn’t recommend this for those with oily skin. But those who have normal to dry skin and are looking for a good anti ageing product, do give this a try. I guess you can pick up samples of this from the Clarins counters.
