I love Clarins. It's been in and out of my budget for many many years. When I saw they had a new calming range, I jumped at the chance to try it as my skin has become fragil and reactive over the past year due to hormones and products with acids/actives. The Restoring Treatment Oil with Clary Sage packaging is a classic White and Red Clarins box, with the oil in a 30ml white glass bottle with dripulator. Box has info on Clary Sage, ingredients, benefits, application use, and Calm-Essentiel commitments, being formula, effectiveness and commitment to preserving the planet (sustainbility/recycling). Application is suggested for night use, which is what I did, in conjuction with the Soothing Emulsion in this range. I would suggest pumping out some of the oil from the dripulator back into the bottle before removing for use, as a full dripulator drops oil out quite quickly without any help from the user. The oil is beautiful, and not heavy in any way whatsoever. It almost feels like a water emulsion, applying easily with no oily feeling or glugginess at all. It doesn't feel like the average serum-type oil. It absorbs easily, leaving a lovely dewiness to the skin. My skin felt immediately comfortably, nourished, with the tight feeling gone. During the first week, my skin broke out on a very humid, busy hot day at work (as a massage therapist). I applied the oil directly to the breakout areas at night after cleansing, and they were complely gone the following morning. After two weeks of use, skin looks more even in tone, is no longer externally reactive, hydration is greatly improved, with no dry patches over my cheeks. I love this oil and will definitely use again instead of another serum I've been using.
It needed a reset, and this is exactly what this Sensitive Skin Care Clairns range aims to do.
