Newly-reformulated in 2017, the Clé de Peau Beauté Le Sérum is a pure delight to experience

Picture a serum so light and so pure, it is almost like a drop of water on your skin. The new Clé de Peau Beauté Le Sérum is a luxury treatment that imbues your skin with a beautiful radiance. First up, the texture of Le Sérum is now lighter than ever. Unlike sticky and heavy serums on the market, this one has a liquid-y texture that glides on the skin and penetrates instantly, but is still sufficiently hydrating. Designed to restore radiance to the skin, it should be used in tandem with the other two products in the brand's Radiance Trio — the ultra rich La Crème (another favourite of ours) and the Intensive Eye Contour Crème.

Each exquisite bottle of La Sérum has been enriched with Clé de Peau Beauté's exclusive Illuminating Complex EX — also found in the rest of the range. The complex consists of platinum golden silk essence to hydrate the skin, Japanese pearl to achieve clarity and firmness, and theanine to improve skin eveness. The new formula also works on intuitive skin theory, the idea that skin can 'think' for itself and even 'select' ingredients that it needs. The serum has four key ingredients, one of which is new to this version. Working on skin's inner radiance, chai hu extract enhances collagen and hyaluronic acid, cornflower extract improves the protein and collagen levels in the skin cells, while inositol firms and plumps the epidermis. The new white lily and tormentilla extract meanwhile, strengthens the base membrane in skin cells, so that skin is supported and strengthened. But all the ingredients would mean nothing, if this serum doesn't have a visible effect on your skin. After a month of use, our skin was more radiant, even-textured and smooth. And most tellingly, we looked forward to using this luxurious serum every evening, thanks to the light-as-air texture and delicate, almost undetectable fragrance.
