Clarins Double Serum. It’s basically an institution on anti-aging innovation. Did you know that it’s first formulation was back in 1985? And it’s still one of the best selling serums in the world to date! I never been so hyped on something this pricey since going loco on SK-II essence back in 2012. I’m in my 30’s guys. We’re not getting any younger and each day I do my research on my quest for eternal youth.
Trivia: Clarins is pronounced as cla-rans
My current skin state today is satisfactory. I have minimal fine lines, small pores, firm and plump. But that’s not enough. I’m noticing crows feet and smile lines that become more visible when I put on my foundation and it settles. I look in the mirror and wish I can turn back the clock or even stop it for a while. I wonder if Clarins Double Serum can hold to its claims?
I’m excited to try the Clarins Double Serum and give you a full and detailed review pretty soon!
But before my full review? Let’s take a sneek peek and give you an overview. It’s a bit lengthy but trust me it’s worth reading. Made me even more hyped to use it! Price and where you can buy it at the end of the post
THE 8TH GENERATION EDITION CLARINS DOUBLE SERUM
This year, Clarins reinvents the iconic Double Serum in its 8th generation edition, decoding the language of youthful skin with a double innovation that offers exceptional improvement on all the different signs of aging.
The language and listening system of cells
Lipid microdomains are found in different types of cells including keratinocytes (key to the skin’s barrier function) and fibroblasts (key to promoting youthful skin). To help preserve the skin’s youth and beauty, each cell ensures 5 vital functions: regeneration, oxygenation, nutrition, hydration, and protection.
FOLLOW THE CODE [20 + 1]
To stimulate the skin’s 5 vital functions, the new Double Serum ‘decodes’ the skin’s youthful language. Clarins researchers mobilized all their scientific resources to decipher the cosmetic properties of hundreds of plant extracts and studied their interactions with the skin. This rigorous venture resulted in the selection of a total of 20 key ingredients: 18 high-performing plant extracts that have a specific action on each of the skin’s vital functions and 2 plant-based ingredients with a targeted action. Double Serum brings these extracts together in one product this year with the addition of a new discovery: turmerone.
New star ingredient turmerone
Clarins Laboratories selected the highest performing ingredient to protect the cells’ ‘listening system’ or lipid microdomains and maintain cellular receptivity: turmeric extract, which is highly concentrated in turmerone, a bio-inspired vegetal discovery.
NO PROMISES, JUST RESULTS
The Clarins Double Serum has clinically proven anti-aging performance: In just one week, visible pores and fine lines are diminished; in one month, skin is visibly smoothed, firmed, more beautiful, and looks younger. Clinical tests prove it can reduce wrinkles by up to 20.1%; make skin more elastic by 32.5%; reduce pores by up to 16.2%; and hydrate the skin all day long (68.1% an hour after application).
The bio-inspired, highly concentrated, unique double formula delivers age-control benefits in a wonderfully sensorial texture. It combines the richness of an oil (without any greasy residue) with the smoothness of an ultra-comfortable gel texture to immediately smooth the skin and promote an unequalled feeling of wellbeing.
A NEW ‘INTELLIGENT’ DOUBLE VIAL BOTTLE
The previous versions of Double Serum had two different vials which contained each of the formula phases. The new version houses interlocking vials: the oil-based phase is now housed in the hydric phase.
A unique double pump system
To preserve the integrity of the liposoluble and hydrosoluble ingredients, the two phases in the new Double Serum mix together upon application. Its unique push button system automatically delivers just the right amount of each phase: ⅔ water-based ingredients and ⅓ oil-based ones. The new adjustable push button system makes it possible to customize the amount of product used depending on the skin’s needs or the climate/seasons
