The NEW Clarins Double Serum

Double Serum by Clarins has been doing the rounds in the skincare cupboards of many for a number of years, since 1985 to be exact. This year, Clarins have released the 8th generation of Double Serum and I've finally tried it for myself. It's been a long time coming, that's for sure. As I've got older, I've taken more care of my skin, my teenage self would be shocked at how much time I take preening now but I'm still getting asked for I.D so I must be doing something right.

Double Serum is a complete age control concentrate which is formulated to work on five vital functions of the skin to give a more youthful and radiant complexion. I always remember coming across Caroline Hiron's post on The Review that Never Was where she spoke of it containing mineral oil and for that reason won't be using it. It just goes to show how much influence people do have because that made my mind up for me and it's only this year, as they've reformulated it, that I've finally tried it. 

The new Double Serum acts on the appearance of the major signs of skin-ageing making skin more radiant, firmer and with fine lines smoother. It now contains 21 active plant extracts, one more than it previously did. The new star ingredient is turmeric which is renowned for its anti-ageing properties. Turmeric extract is highly concentrated in turmerone which targets the surface of the cell to aid skin cell communication. It's like skin gold!

I use Double Serum AM and PM after cleansing. The new bottle lets you choose how much you need depending on your skin needs or season thanks to the dial pump which you to adjust to a small or large drop. It really helps with unnecessary wastage too, especially as this is £75 a bottle. I just pump into the palm of my hands and apply. I've been using Double Serum since the beginning of October and the difference in my skin, for me is really noticeable. It looks smoother, more radiant and that's really saying something when you have a seven week old baby. Using it at a time my skin really needed it most has truly shown me why it is such a loved product by so many.

This is something I'll be keeping in my routine, despite the price tag. My mother always said to invest in your skincare and on this occasion, she is right but shh don't tell her!
