Clarins – HydraQuench Cream-Mask
This post may contain affiliate links.
If you are a regular reader of Beauty Best Friend you will know that I am a big fan of Clarins skincare and I am a regular user of their HydraQuench Lotion which I reviewed here. So when I was sent this HydraQuench Cream-Mask* to try out I was very excited. The ingredients include Hyaluronic acid which helps to restore the skin’s water reserves and Katafray extract which also helps dehydrated skin to hold on to moisture.
Firstly I must apologise for the quality of the photographs that I have taken of this product, the pearlescent shimmery finish of the blue tube reflects the light and has made it very difficult for me to take a clear photo of the tube!
Clarins HydraQuench Cream-Mask is a thick, creamy, white non-drying mask which aims to add moisture to dehydrated or dry skins. It has a mild scent reminiscent of old-fashioned moisturisers or lotions like Astral. The mask should be applied to the face with the fingertips and then left on for 5 to 10 minutes. Clarins suggests removing the mask with a cotton pad that has been soaked in toner, but I prefer to use a damp facecloth and then wipe with cotton wool and toner afterwards.
I have combination skin with oily chin and nose, but drier dehydrated skin on my forehead and cheeks. I have found that HydraQuench Cream-Mask leaves the skin on my forehead and cheeks feeling soft and moisturised, but it can make my chin in particular feel more oily than usual. Therefore in the future I will just be using this mask on the drier sections of my face for a moisture boost. I imagine this mask will be invaluable in Winter, when skin can be left thirsty from the drying effects of central heating and the cold weather.
If you have dry or dehydrated skin, then I would highly recommend this mask to you. You don’t need to apply too much to get a good covering on the skin either, so the 75ml tube will last for ages too.
HydraQuench Cream-Mask is priced at £33 for 75ml and is available from Clarins.
