I’ve been introduced some incredible skincare products lately and I think slowly but sure I’m really getting a grip on my skin. My new Clarisonic is working wonders (although I’ll be happy when the purging stage is over), but just before I started using my Clarisonic I was sent this. The Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil for Dehydrated Skin.
I can’t tell you how much I love this stuff. It smells divine, it leaves my skin feeling amazing, it absorbs pretty quickly and its just an amazing product.
I have to say from the off I’m not sure what “dehydrated skin” is, or how it differs from “dry skin”. There is a treatment oil for dry skin and this one for dehydrated skin so they must be something different. It doesn’t really matter, what matters is that it works beautifully on my skin. 100% pure plant extracts with no preservatives, this oil contains Rosewood, Patchouli and Blue Orchid to tone, revitalise and restore radiance to moisture depleted skin. Hazelnut Oil helps to prevent moisture loss and prevent the formation of fine lines.
This is an oil intended for use in the evenings only. I cleanse as usual then add a few drops to the palm of my hand and massage into my skin. If I’m feeling extremely dry (have had a lot of colds lately) I’ll add a touch of moisturiser to the dry bits as well, otherwise I just use the oil only.
When I wake up in the morning my skin feels plump, clean, healthy and most importantly moisturised but not congested. Obviously, I am now using a Clarisonic as well and some of these things can be attributed to that too, but I was using this oil for a couple of weeks before the Clarisonic arrived and I still noticed these results.
All in all, I highly recommend this and so my love affair with Clarins continues. It’s £29 for 30ml and I envisage this will last quite some time given how little you use.
