Clarins HydraQuench Cream Review

With the recent cold and windy weather in my place I really do need a good moisturiser. I have combination skin that gets a little oily in the T-Zone but I rarely have any breakouts or blemishes. In winter time my skin can feel a little dry, so I decided to get a good moisturizer and I brought the Clarins HydraQuench Cream for normal to dry skin. It contains Katafray bark extract and hyaluronic acid that are supposed to maintain an optimal level of hydration.

Ingredients [Clarins]
Water, Glycerin, Diethylhexyl Succinate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Silica, Cetearyl Alcohol, Dipentaerythrityl Tetrahydroxystearate/Tetraisostearate, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG 100 Stearate, Cetearyl Glucoside, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Polyacrylamide, Caprylyl Glycol, Fragrance, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium PCA, Tetrasodium EDTA, Butylene Glycol, Dimethiconol, Glyceryl Acrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Tocopherol, Laureth-7, Cedrelopsis Grevei Bark Extract, Pentylene Glycol, Pyrus Sorbus Bud Extract, Biosaccharide Gum 4, Thermus Thermophillus Ferment, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Lapsana Communis Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Rhodiola Rosea Root Extract, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbic Acid, Pottassium Sorbate

The moisturiser is thick and creamy, it sinks into my skin within minutes without leaving any oily residue. I use this cream only in the morning, it's ideal to wear under makeup. It smells nice like all their products do. The scent is fresh and a little floral. I can say it does a good job in moisturizing my skin and the hydrated feeling of it lasts really long. Nevertheless, I think this cream is a little overprized.

Have you ever tried this cream? Which one is your favorite moisturizer?
As always, thank you so much for reading. I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow, I'm really excited for that (:

  1. Clarins is my favourite brand when it comes to skincare. I love their products so much. This one seems like it's no different. I have heard many good things about the hydraquench line and I really like that it's got hyaluronic acid in it. I must try it at some point, as my skin is dry and could do with something like it. xx

  2. I have used this cream before...and I loved it. My skin felt really moisturized without feeling oily.
    I agree, it is a little pricey.
