“If you love the Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Silky Cream but want the bonus of SPF15 protection, this is the Hydra-Essentiel cream for you - it delivers the same skin-quenching properties as the rest of the line, but with added UV defence.” - Kate, Escentual Beauty Team.
Why You’ll Love The Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Day Cream:
- Hydrating day cream for normal to combination skin that's dehydrated.
- Delivers plumper skin in 60 seconds.
- Offers long-lasting moisture and plumpness.
- Boosts the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid reserves.
- Features a light, non-greasy cream texture.
- Suitable for all ages and ethnicities.
What You Need To Know:
While offering UV protection to guard against damaging UV rays, the Hydra-Essentiel Day Cream with SPF is a must-have for dehydrated skin. Built with Clarins' HA² complex, it combines two hyaluronic acid types for plump, hydrated skin. High molecular HA immediately plumps up the surface of your skin, while low molecular weight HA dives down deep into your skin to ensure long-term moisture and plumpness. But that's not all. The day cream also boosts your skin’s natural hyaluronic acid reserves, meaning that it helps your skin tap into its very own moisture levels, thanks to the inclusion of Clarins’ exclusive and patented organic leaf of life extract.
Why It’s Escentual:
Dehydrated skin is incredibly common. In fact, 9 in 10 women report struggling with skin dehydration. All skin types can struggle with dehydration - yes, even oily complexions. If you're unsure about whether your skin is dehydrated, one tell-tale sign is a feeling of tight, uncomfortable skin, especially after cleansing. But what causes skin dehydration? It can be down to several factors - from using skincare products that are too aggressive or stripping for your skin type to stress and fatigue. And yes, external factors such as pollution and weather can play a part - including UV rays. That’s why the SPF-infused Hydra-Essentiel moisturiser is ideal for those who think their dehydrated skin is caused by their environment.
But if you’re not sure whether to plump for the SPF version over the original Silky Cream, you might want to think about the textures - the Silky Cream has a slightly richer feel that melts in within a matter of seconds, whereas the SPF version has a slightly light, lotion-like texture but takes ever so slightly longer to work in - you won't experience any white cast or greasy feelings once it has, though.
The Best Way To Use It:
Use in the morning. To enhance the application process, warm the product up in your hands and apply it outwards, working from the centre of the face and neck. Then, apply pressure-draining movements from the centre to the sides of your face. To ensure effective sun protection, we'd always recommend following up with a high broad-spectrum SPF.
The Sustainable Side:
