GIVENCHY Le Soin Noir fans, your favourite collection has undergone an exciting transformation for 2021 – and the line is more efficient, more sensorial and more sustainable than ever before. To find out all about the changes made to the GIVENCHY Le Soin Noir Creme (and why I’m confident you’ll still love the moisturiser just as much, if not more) keep reading…
The Most Important Thing About This Anti-Ageing Moisturiser Is…
Boasting an all-new look and an all-new formula for 2021, GIVENCHY’s couture day cream is powered by the state-of-the-art black sap of vital algae just like before, but it’s also been reformulated for the better: the previous deep-black face cream has been upgraded, and the unique, powerhouse black sap is now fully integrated into a white pre-emulsion phase, resulting in a creamy white formula that’s been flipped on its head for more innovation, more luxury and more efficiency.
But what exactly does this anti-ageing skincare formula do? It works to strengthen the skin to correct signs of ageing, targeting everything from wrinkles and fine lines to a lack of density and firmness. The skin’s texture is refined and more even as the luxurious moisturiser reveals a lit-from-within glow.
What Skin Type Is It For?
Luckily for us all, GIVENCHY’s Le Soin Noir Creme is suitable for all skin types. Of course, it’s specially designed for those who want to target signs of ageing – and it offers impressive results, too:
• 100% of women found their complexion was more luminous.
• 97% of women found their skin was plumper.
• 98% of women found their skin texture was refined.
After one month’s use:
• 100% of women found their skin was revitalised.
• 95% of women found signs of ageing were corrected.
• 98% of women found their skin felt firmer.
You Will Love This If…
If you loved the original Le Soin Noir Creme, this will be right up your street. It’s Le Soin Noir, but better. Of course, the essence of the line is the same, but the main improvements are:
• The previous black texture is replaced by a white texture with greater sensoriality, thanks to the integration of the black sap into a white pre-emulsion phase.
• The opulent, creamy texture offers immediate deep penetration and optimised efficiency.
• The packaging has been updated to reduce GIVENCHY’s environmental impact.
Just like the rest of the Le Soin Noir skincare line (both pre and post-reformation), the Le Soin Noir moisturiser is powered by black sap of vital algae. But what’s the history behind this type of algae, and why on earth is it so impressive? Well, billions of years ago, life emerged for the first time as algae – and algae has survived ever since, showcasing its incredible natural resistance by thriving in the most hostile conditions.
After 25 years of research, GIVENCHY Laboratories discovered the exceptional power of vital algae off the coast of Brittany. Since then, they’ve decoded the secret to its longevity: a unique molecular structure combining four micronutrients that are essential to skin youth. Concentrated into an unrivalled black sap, this precious active infuses the skin with vital algae’s life force-restoring cellular communication, ensuring protection and correction against the signs of ageing as the regenerative algae helps to boost the skin’s defences.
What Does It Feel Like?
Le Soin Noir’s ultra-rich, sumptuous creamy texture immediately melts into the skin, leaving behind an ultra-comfortable feel with a divine velvety finish. But this is GIVENCHY we’re talking about, so of course they make this process even more luxurious! After you’ve applied and blended the moisturiser in, you can work the cold-effect ceramic spatula along your complexion as though you’re indulging in a morning spa session, with the tool encouraging both optimal skincare performance and a moment of well-being.
What Does It Smell Like?
GIVENCHY’s luscious anti-ageing moisturiser is laced with a unique Le Soin Noir fragrance that’s inspired by the ocean. But it’s an aroma that captures the cool, soothing calm essence of the depths of the ocean, rather than a true-to-life scent, so you can enjoy a moment of blissful serenity as you breathe it in.
How Do You Use The Product?
Warm a small amount of the Le Soin Noir Creme in the palms of your hands and inhale its soothing fragrance before applying to your complexion using gentle upwards strokes. With the massage spatula, apply a gentle pressure to your face as you smooth the spatula from the centre to the edge of your face, mimicking a facial massage. Then, apply a gentle pressure using three fingertips on the key meridian points: on the forehead, cheeks, chin and chest to complete the sensory experience.
What’s Special About The Design?
Held in an ultra-sleek, chic double-walled glass jar featuring a jet-black centre that reminds me of the most premium inkwell, the Le Soin Noir Creme features a design that’s pretty similar to its pre-2021 predecessor, but it’s also been given a revamp just like the formula within. For starters, the jar is now optimised to use materials with less impact, while it also uses more lightweight materials; in fact, the new-and-improved packaging is designed to reduce its environmental impact by over 60%.
But the main thing I love about the design is that the refill option is maintained. Offering timeless use and a more eco-friendly approach to high end skincare, the centre can be replaced by the updated plastic refill so you don’t have to discard your existing jar time and time again once you’ve reached the bottom. Oh, and I have to admit that I love how the snow-white, whipped cream looks inside the otherwise jet black jar; it’s very special.
