New: Clarins’ Double Serum

Double Serum with capThis serum will change your life – it will change what you think of serums and of anti-aging products.

Why?

Because its unique formulation means that this is a serum that works like no other.

Clarins’ Double Serum is aptly named. The bottle houses two chambers: one that contains oil-based ingredients, and the other contains water-based ingredients. Instead of using emulsifiers to combine the two types of ingredients, the scientists at Clarins just decided to house them separately. When you pump the serum into your hand, both sides release serum and you mix the oil and water ingredients yourself and apply them on your face. There’s nothing extra in the serum; but there’s also nothing missing. The serum has everything it needs to have to provide your skin with hydration and effective anti-aging ingredients.

And now to its effects.

Immediately upon applying the serum, you’ll see more radiant, glowing, and even-toned skin. Fine lines will seem to virtually disappear. Even if you thought you didn’t need an anti-aging serum, you’ll be surprised at what a difference this one makes.

If you have oily skin, chances are that the lipids in the serum will give you enough moisture, but if not, you can apply face cream on top. Even makeup goes on smoothly and evenly after applying the serum, and the effects are long-lasting.

Like all high-end serums, this one smells great: roses are definitely in the fragrance, and the lasting scent is fresh and feminine.

    Given that the product has nothing not there or anything additional the difference is in the way the product is stored and delivred. Does having these formulas stored and dispensed this way help them to work better? I guess it would mean that each dose would have an equal amount of oil and water based ingredients as opposed to separation that occurs with oil and water. Would the product quality be better due to separate storage? I received a sample and coupon for this, I do like and use some Clarins, is this a good choice for a serum in comparison to others? Also do you happen to know if it is a 30 ml product? Thanks

    My only concern with this product is that mineral oil is one of the top ingredients. I would have expected better from Clarins. I really find it disappointing that companies like this are continuing to use these types of products in their new products you would think they would try to get away form this.
    Mineral oil is clear, liquid oil with no scent and will not spoil. It is produced as a byproduct of the distillation of gasoline from crude oil. Mineral oil is leftover liquid, and because it is abundant, it is very inexpensive. In fact, it is more expensive to dispose of mineral oil, than to purchase it.
    Mineral oil acts as a thin layer on the skin. It is difficult to absorb and clogs the pores, which slows the skin’s ability to eliminate toxins. Remember, the skin is the body’s largest organ and plays an important role in maintaining overall health! Once the oil is absorbed, it is broken down by the liver and passes through the intestinal tract, it will absorb all of the fat-soluble vitamins found there. It is essentially stealing important vitamins from the body, which the body will not be able to replace. This can eventually lead to nutritional deficiencies. Studies have also shown forms of pneumonia caused by mineral oil decreasing lung function, known as lipoid pneumonia. Because of these dangers, the medical community has condemned the use of mineral oil taken orally or as an ingredient in medications. quoted from : http://www.herballuxuries.com/about-mineral-oil.html

    Thanks for sharing that information, Ruby.

    I, too, usually don’t like products with mineral oil (or paraffin) in them, but this one is truly a nice product and I did see benefits after using it! Also, as someone with oily skin, I did not break out after using it daily (night and day).
