When it comes to skincare, most of us are just after a do-it-all product that keeps skin healthy and fits in with our busy lives. Enter, Clarins Double Serum. With one bottle selling every five seconds, it has garnered a whopping 394 beauty awards worldwide. Now, joining this number one serum franchise is Double Serum Light Texture, that has all the benefits of the original, with a weightless, easily absorbed texture. But what makes these serums so good? This is everything you need to know…


What is Clarins Double Serum?

Originally developed over 35 years ago, Clarins Double Serum has been the number one serum since 2013 – so it’s kind of a big deal. It contains 21 plant extracts that work to boost hydration, improve suppleness, amp up glow, strengthen the skin barrier, increase collagen production, and protect skin from external aggressors. In short, Clarins Double Serum combines some of the most potent plant ingredients with high-tech scientific research and innovation to deliver seriously impressive youth-boosting results.

What makes Clarins Double Serum different?

There’s a reason Double Serum is one of the most universally adored skincare products around, and it’s all down to its ground-breaking formula and technology. Combining a hydric and lipidic system in two separate vials that dispense together, the powerful ingredients are kept at their most potent and efficacious.

And the ingredients themselves are quite special, too. Utilising the power of turmeric, the serum works to protect the cells ‘listening’ system, allowing it to react efficiently to the skin’s wants and needs, even as it ages.

OK, but why is it so good?

While science-y skincare stuff sounds great on paper, it doesn’t always deliver. However, with Clarins Double Serum, the proof is in the pudding. Its powerful blend of plant extracts tackled the skins five vital functions: hydration, nutrition, oxygenation, protection and regeneration.

What does this mean for your complexion, we hear you ask? Skin feels softer and smoother, wrinkle formation slows down, the skin’s natural barrier is strengthened, leading to improved skin function and natural-looking radiance, and on top of all that, it also helps with firmness thanks to increased collagen production. Essentially, it’s healthy skin in a bottle.



Introducing Double Serum Light Texture

You asked, and Clarins listened. Double Serum Light Texture is the new addition to the beloved Double Serum range and is for anyone looking for a do-it-all serum with a light-as-a-feather texture. As with the original, the Light Texture uses the dual biometric formula (Hydric and Lipidic), except this time with a 50% lighter feeling due to a trio of weightless oils.

Why do we need two textures?

By adding Double Serum Light Texture into the Double Serum range, Clarins have opened up their iconic age-defying serum to people of all skin types. Due to its lightweight formula, you may find the Light Texture more suitable if you have oily skin, and the original Double Serum better for dry skin. Did you know: men naturally have oilier skin, producing up to twice as much sebum as women? Or you may want to switch up your skincare as you move between seasons, opting for a lighter serum in summer and a heavier serum in winter.

I'm sold - how do I use it? 

Applying Double Serum twice a day after cleansing is a sure-fire way to see results. Simply rotate the dial to select how much product you want to apply, press down, mix the two phases together in your fingers and massage into skin. For extra hydration, follow up with a moisturiser. Alternatively, if you want an extra glow boost, mix a drop into your foundation.

And what about my eyes?

It’s no secret that the eye area usually requires some extra TLC. Its delicate and reactive nature makes it more prone to puffiness, dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles. In fact, 84% of women say the eye contour is the part of the face they pay closest attention to.

Understanding that the eye area often needs something a little heavier duty, Clarins Double Serum Eye is the ultimate age-controlling eye concentrate. Continuing to embrace the brightening and protective properties of turmeric, Double Serum Eye also contains wild chervil extract to help the skin regain strength and vitality, working against the signs of ageing. With the tightening effect of a gel combined with the comfort of a cream, the double formula delivers a rested-looking eye area. Working to smooth wrinkles, reduce puffiness and dark circles, strengthen the skin, illuminate and protect skin against pollution, it is also suitable for all skin types. If you ask us, there are few things the iconic Double Serum duo can’t do.

Completing your Clarins routine

After cleansing and applying your chosen Double Serum and Double Serum Eye, it’s time to moisturise – and Clarins has something for everyone.

Infused with hyaluronic acid, the Hydra Essentiel range is for you if your skin is dehydrated and dull. For women on the go, Multi-Active offers visible results, reducing the appearance of signs of stress and ageing, while reviving tired skin too. Meanwhile, the Extra Firming range firms, lifts and fights wrinkles to put the spring back in your step. Lastly, if you’re looking for skin support through the hormonal changes that come with menopause, the Super Restorative range will be your go-to.
