Cleanse, Tone & Moisture-wise
The three steps of a daily skincare regime - Cleanse, Tone and Moisturise - have been ingrained since our early teens.
There are been some new steps added of late - in particular serums and oils - but getting the basics right is essential.
Here are some new releases in the 'Cleanse, Tone and Moisturise' offerings.
Clarins HydraQuench Intensive Cream-Gel is the latest addition to their HydraQuench range for dehydrated skin.
Multi-level hydration that replenishes the skin's water reserves using exclusive ingredients Katafray and Hyaluronic acid lies at the heart of Clarins' HydraQuench range, and this creamy gel gives a immediate cooling effect and is non-oily and silky smooth.
