Clarins Hydraquench Cream Review

Skincare seems to really have taken off in the beauty world last year, so I complied my 'dream skincare' list and have slowly been accumulating creams and gels and any other bits that I have been lusting after. One thing that varies from person to person is their night cream. I have dry skin and so in the search for my perfect night cream I was looking for something that was thick and hydrating but also not heavily scented as I find sometimes they can disagree with my skin. For christmas I received quite a few boots vouchers and so naturally I did a lot of research then strolled into boots to pick this up. 

The Clarins Hydraquench line is fairly new and I'd read a couple of good reviews on it so I decided to give it a go. I've been using this for about 3/4 weeks now and thought I'd give you my thoughts. First of  all it has a very light fresh scent, nothing to florally or overpowering. It's a really think cream that blends into the skin like a dream, leaving no greasy residue on top of the skin which is amazing. The packaging is although not ideal, with it being in a pot, comes with a plastic cover (not pictured) that you can keep on top of the cream to keep it in tip top condition. My skin has not felt as dry or tight after using this and in the morning my skin feels plump, looks healthy and is really smooth. Overall it's a hit for me! 

Are you into skincare? What's your favourite product?



  1. This looks really interesting! I have been looking for a good moisturizer, but I haven't found anything that I really love quite yet. I haven't ever tried anything from Clarins, so I might just have to give this a shot!

  2. It's really good, this is the second product I've tried from Clarins and I'm really impressed! xx

  3. This sounds lovely! I haven't tried many Clarins products before but I definitely have a growing list of Clarins products that I would like to try.

    Hi! I've nominated you for the Liebster Award, check out my post for more details :) xx

  5. This sounds really good, i prefer my evening creams to be thicker but easy to blend so this sounds just like something I'd buy. I've got a few Clarins products on my skincare list, I'm waiting for my current ones to run out before I try some new ones. Will pop this onto my list to try out. Great post. xx

  6. Great post! 95% of my skincare and body care is Clarins I love it! The HydraQuench smells divine it has been around for many years but they re formularised it a couple of years ago to include active ingredients like katafray bark and cactus with a gorgeous light floral finish of rose. I would definitely recommend you try the Hydra quench mask if you love the moisturiser, it's my favourite and the bottle lasts for ages :)

    Love your blog, I have followed you on Bloglovin from the link you left me on twitter :)
    Have a good day!

  7. It does look very appealing. I have been having such dry skin lately too. Clarins seems to be no fuss get the job done brand. Might have to give it a try. Thank you for the review.

  8. This sounds so good - my skin is super dry at the moment

  9. The Clarins Hydraquench range has to be one of my favourites! I love using the Blue Orchid Facial Oil too from Clarins, I think you may like it too :D
