Best Hydrating Moisturiser: Clarins Plant Gold Nutri-Revitalising Oil-Emulsion (S$110)
Given our humid weather, coupled with having to keep our face masks on while we’re out, now more than ever, we want skincare that does the work in hydrating, without leaving our faces too greasy. Clarins Plant Gold Nutri-Revitalising Oil-Emulsion does just that, combining the benefits of a cream and an oil to give skin a much-needed boost of nourishment, even after a long day of getting zapped by the heat, sweat and humidity.
A creamy face oil/emulsifier hybrid, the formula is housed in an innovative double-chambered bottle – one half of the bottle holds the blue orchid treatment oil, while the other, Clarins’ natural origin emulsion. Only when pumped does the formula dispel together for a freshly-blended formula that is surprisingly lightweight and non-greasy, and blends smoothly into while hydrating skin.
You can thank the powers of the formula’s plant extracts for that boost of hydration. Its key ingredient, Blue Orchid extract sourced from the Himalayas, is a known and highly prized emollient that aids in dramatically softening skin and calming inflammation, from redness to acne. This is combined with four other oils – responsibly sourced virgin hazelnut, macadamia, almond and grape seed plant oils – for a delicious concoction of fatty acids and antioxidants that leaves skin plump and supple. Essential oils of rosemary and patchouli top off this lightweight moisturiser, providing a holistic spa-like experience upon each application.
Made with 100% plant extracts, with natural aromatic fragrances and without synthetic preservatives and colourants, the Plant Gold Nutri-Oil Emulsion is well suited for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Clarins Plant Gold Nutri-Revitalizing Oil-Emulsion is priced at $110 for 35ml and is available at all Clarins boutiques and counters.
