GUERLAIN Double R Renew & Repair Advanced Serum Review

GUERLAIN Double R Renew & Repair Advanced Serum Review

I can promise you that anti-ageing skincare doesn’t get much more luxurious and innovative than the GUERLAIN Abeille Royale Double R Renew & Repair Advanced Serum. Repacked for 2022, the iconic Double R Serum has been reformulated with a new ingredient, polyfermented honey, to improve its efficiency and bottled in a new signature golden design.

If you’re new to GUERLAIN Double R or you just need reminding about its supreme anti-ageing formula, then don’t worry; as a mega-fan of the Abeille Royale collection, I’m the best person to review Double R and tell you what makes it so special…

Why Our Team Wanted To Try It..

The Most Important Thing About The GUERLAIN Double R Serum Is…

In keeping with the rest of the ultra-premium Abeille Royale collection, Double R harnesses the healing power of GUERLAIN’s exclusive honey sourced from biodiverse lands to create a supreme 96% natural anti-ageing formula.

The Double R Serum features a dual chamber design that splits the formula: one side works to renew your complexion by peeling away dead skin for a new-skin feel, while the other side gets to work on repairing wrinkles. Its innovative formula works to reduce visible signs of ageing, including firmness, dullness, imperfections and large pores. In fact, during clinical trials, it was shown to boost radiance by 46% and increase firmness by 21%.


What Skin Type Is It For?

The Double R Renew & Repair Serum can be used by all skin types, but it’s especially good for skin that shows signs of ageing, like wrinkles, dullness and lack of plumpness.

If you love the GUERLAIN Abeille Royale collection or ultra-premium anti-ageing skincare in general, you’ll adore the Double R Renew & Repair Advanced Serum.


Hero Ingredients:

Double R’s effective results lie in its hero ingredient: honey. The formula offers a lifted-skin effect, thanks to the incredible healing benefits of Royal Jelly and Black Bee honey that’s sourced from Britany, France; the biodiverse landscape ensures the extraordinary purity of the honey, as well as exceptional skin-repairing properties. Infused with GUERLAIN’s exclusive Royal Jelly, which is a nutritious substance that bee hives save for the creation of queens, has unparalleled anti-ageing properties.

The first chamber holds the power of skin renewal, improving the skin’s texture and quality; Double R does this by gently peeling away skin using three types of AHAs and PHAs that are designed to renew skin twice as fast. The second chamber contains a skin-repairing formula that works to tighten, brighten and nourish the skin using Dynamic Blackbee Repair technology.

GUERLAIN Double R offers a sensory experience like no other; the ultra-luxe serum has two chambers – one with a deep orange peeling serum that has a weightless gel texture and the other with a yellow lifting serum that has a creamy richness. The two serums join together to create an ultra-silky formula that’s skin-quenching, absorbs into the skin instantly and has a dry-to-touch finish.


What Does It Smell Like?

The formula is freshly scented by deliciously sweet honey – but I wouldn’t expect anything less from an Abeille Royale icon!


How Do You Use The Product?

First off, warm the formula between your fingertips. Then, start applying from the centre of your face, smoothing it across your cheekbones, jawline, cheeks and forehead using an outward motion.

Use the GUERLAIN Double R Renew & Repair Advanced Serum after the Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil for the best anti-ageing results.

What’s Special About The Design?

The original classic gold design has been slightly updated. For anyone who already owns Double R but can’t quite pinpoint why it looks a little different, the body of the bottle has been changed to glass, with a slightly wider pump nozzle and a larger engraving of GUERLAIN’s logo on the gold base.



GUERLAIN is committed to the protection of bees.
