If you guys have been following me on IG stories then you probably have followed along as I teased you all about a brand new skin care product I have been trying. I told you all I would reveal the product and ALL my thoughts in today’s post, so here it is!
The product I have been using is the brand new Clarins Double Serum and let me tell you guys — it is everything and MORE.
First of all as an Esthetician, I come across people regularly that actually don’t know how important and beneficial it is to incorporate serum into their daily skin care regimen. For those of you who don’t know, serums contain the highest concentration of active ingredients that you can get without a prescription. To put this simply, cleansers and moisturizers usually contain between 5 and 10% active ingredient, whereas serums can contain up to 70%. This means that you’ll actually get results, whether you’re looking to even tone, reduce fine lines, brighten, firm or get rid of dark spots.
It is however, important to note that you have to find the right serum which can be a bit overwhelming at times.
With my professional background in skincare, I am very picky when it comes to serums and products in general so I always make sure to test them out for at least a week or two before giving you all my opinion. I had the opportunity to try the Clarins new Double Serum and immediately was impressed but the results even got better as I continued using it. After close to a week of using it, my skin feels so much smoother, firmer and I have bit of an extra “glow.” I am actually really surprised that I’ve seen such visible results in such a short period of time which has me excited to continue using it for a few months.
The Clarins Double Serum is exactly that — two serums in one and is powered by 21 powerful plant extracts, (including Turmeric) all which helps target signs of aging for younger looking skin and I mean, who doesn’t want that?! Did you guys know for more than 4,000 years, Tumeric has been used by many cultures for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties? It’s no surprise it can do wonders for the skin as well! Not only all this but the Clarins Double Serum optimizes the performance of your regular day and night creams by boosting your skin’s 5 vital functions: Regeneration (skin firmness), Oxygenation (radiance), Nutrition, Hydration and Protection (fights free radicals).
Now, another question I get asked very regularly is how serums are supposed to be applied or when to use during your skin care process. First of all, don’t ever feel embarrassed or scared to ask! If I wasn’t in this field I probably wouldn’t know either and I’m always here to answer any questions. Serums are always applied after cleansing but before moisturizing. Lately after washing my face, I have been applying the Clarins Double Serum on my face and neck morning and night and then follow it with my regular moisturizer. You really only need about one pump of the serum, rub it between your palms and apply gently to your skin. It’s really a simple process and doesn’t add much time to your normal routine at all.
Like I said, I’ve been loving the results after using the product for about a week and highly recommend you guys check it out as well. Just head here to purchase it for yourself and let me know if you guys have any additional questions!
