Clarins Hydra-Essentiel welcomes two new moisturising facial products for your skincare needs
We all know that person. You know, the one who doubles their shampoo for soap, the one who combs body lotion onto their hair ends in place of a conditioner because they couldn't be bothered to make a pit stop at Sephora... for the last two weeks.
As much as everybody loves a good do-it-all-er (certainly when we're on the road), certain beauty products, especially skincare, are best left to tend to the single, pivotal function they were formulated for. Case in point? Facial moisturisers and lip balms — specifically the Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Moisturizing Reviving Eye Mask and Moisturizing Replenishing Lip Balm, tasked to return moisture to delicate areas prone to dehydration, such as your eye-contours and pout.
Extracts of Clarins' "organic leaf of life" (aka kalanchoe pinnata, a well-known plant widely used in folk medicine, and the star of the Hydra-Essentiel range) can be found in both the eye mask and lip balm, though it is complemented by other ingredients.
The Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Moisturizing Reviving Eye Mask is also powered with quinoa — yes, the superfood-meets-skincare bonanza isn't slowing down — which helps skin retain its moisture reserves for a smooth and supple under-eye area devoid of dark circles and puffy bags. The Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Moisturizing Replenishing Lip Balm, on the other hand, contains cocoa extract. It boosts hyaluronic acid production. This leads to an increase in the overall hydration of your lips — giving you the perfect canvas for makeup application after.
