Clarins’ HydraQuench Cream offers beauty and well being for normal to combination skin all year round, thanks to the anti-dehydrating properties of Katafray bark extract, and for dry skin in summer. Its fine, comfortable and quickly absorbed texture provides skin with instant well being and balanced, long-lasting hydration. Ensures unrivalled complexion radiance.
What our Beauty Master says:
‘I was a bit skeptical about a cream-gel, as I have never used something like this before, but when I opened this blue jar I was pleasantly surprised. It looks like a cream that has been whipped into a soft smooth silky texture. The HydraQuench Cream-Gel is very hydrating and seemed to glide onto my skin and was absorbed quite quickly. This is perfect for the summer as it’s very moisturising minus the heavy creamy consistency. I have a combination skin and find that with a regular face cream (even ones specially for summer) can still be a bit too heavy for the less dry areas on your face and even leave you with a bit of an oily shine.
‘All Clarins products have very clean and subtle scents that are not overpowering at all, and the Cream-Gel equally had a light and fresh smell. The only downside to this product is its packaging. I found the glass jar to be very heavy, which is not travel friendly at all, but in the end it’s a small sacrifice for an amazingly moisturising cream-gel. The HydraQuench Cream-Gel will definitely be added to my summer skincare routine.’
This product is a firm favourite of mine. It saved my skin and in turn saved me a lot of money. I had tried nearly everything for my dry skin. It leaves my skin feeling comfortable and healthy, none of the dry, flaky patches that I used to have.
The product comes in a rather heavy jar so it is not so easy to travel with. But I still keep a jar in my gym bag.
I am normally a combination to oily customer but from enjoying the summer sun on the coast I have had to add extra moisture to my skin. I am really excited that I have a bit of a bronzed tan although my skin peels more easily. To avoid this I have purchased a wonderful product that does just the trick! Apply morning and evening on the face and neck after thorough cleansing, and whenever skin feels uncomfortable due to dryness. I guess the products active ingredients help maintain my new tan and keep my skin hydrated and soft yet radiant all day long. Hyaluronic acid helps to restore the skin’s water reserves and the Katafray extract helps to reinforce the barrier effect of the outer layer of the skin, limiting dehydration. Also not forgetting to drink plenty of water to keep you refreshed and hydrated from within…
Hydraquench is one of those moisturisers that you cannot help but fall in love with! And my love affair with this baby has spanned many years. The scent is clean, and the feel refreshing and comforting. I used this product when I was using Roaccutane, and it calmed my sensitized skin.
