Who isn't a fan of Clé De Peau Beauté cannot be trusted — in beauty anyway. I've been a champion of their products since I tried the OG basic skincare range years ago. Every product the brand makes that land on my lap, I finish without fail. I didn't waste a drop of the Radiant Multi Repair Oil, and I did to the Radiant Cream Foundation (still the best foundation my face has ever seen) what we all do to toothpaste. Got. To. Get. Every. Last. Drop.
I was expectedly ecstatic when the Key Radiance Care skincare range dropped. I was curious how it differed from its predecessor, and if that even mattered, because I found zero fault with it. Here's my short answer: it's lighter, better looking, and made of rarer, smarter ingredients.
Here's my longer answer: as with the old set, the lotions are stellar, unlike anything else in the market. I almost want to say you might not even need the emulsions or creams after a pump of this rich goodness, but why settle for good skin when you can have great skin? For day, I like the Protective Fortifying Emulsion as it's refreshing, lightweight and has SPF; for night, the Intensive Fortifying Cream is my choice to repair and nourish. The day emulsion is more absorbent than I remember it to be, and the night cream, more of a fluffy gel-cream now than a true cream, which wasn't even that heavy to begin with. For an Asian in a tropical country, this is very good news. My skin looked plump and awake after application of both. No surprises there.
What caught me off guard was The Serum. It was exactly what I want in a power-packed product — a hard-working, luxurious, science-backed formula served by way of a weightless watery texture, housed in a flacon I can only describe as $$$. And it smelled good. It smelled too good. My incredibly sensitive cheek didn't take to the fragrance well (redness and itch became an issue) though my heart, and that of Clé De Peau Beauté, were in the right place.
