Skincare Concerns:

The complete age control concentrate fight Wrinkles, Dryness, Fine Lines, Dullness and Uneven Texture,  Loss of firmness etc.


Clarins Double Serum is water and oil based face serum, been an oil-based serum, you will feel that oily texture when applying it to your skin, it may look as if it will sit on top of the skin for a long time before sinking in, it doesn’t and it does not feel greasy too.

The thickness of the oil makes you think is going to take time to absorb, the texture and the  feeling are oily in nature, even for an oil It doesn’t take that much time for the product to actually absorb nicely into the skin.


To apply this complete age control concentrate serum, clean your face with a cleanser and apply one or two pumps of the product onto your face down to your neck, It’s advisable to apply them before a moisturizer, if you used it consistently, they are capable of eliminating fine lines and wrinkles, and also improve the skin’s texture and firmness, thereby leaving you with a glowing and youthful complexion.

It’s advisable to apply it at nighttime if you have oily or combination of skin, because of the oily nature of the serum, it takes a little time to absorb, which makes it slightly more difficult to wear during the day because it might mess up your makeups.

Drying Time:

The drying time on the Clarins double serum complete age control is a little bit longer than most lightweight serum, the product sits on the skin before it slowly sinks and penetrate your face and neck gradually, you might have to wait a minute or two before applying your moisturizer.


The Clarins complete age control concentrate has a very strong natural floral scent, the scent feels very pleasant to me, I know most people easily irritated with fragrance will like it, however, if you are the type that love fragrance, a good moisturizer can take care of the floral scent.

Like I always say the best fragrance doesn’t have anything to do with efficacy of any  skin care product, it doesn’t add value to it, and sometimes you can get irritated from fragrance, if you have skin sensitivities.

Short Term Results:

Just in 7 days the anti-aging and innovative 2-in-1 complete age control concentrate packed with 21 potent plant extracts including recently added Turmeric effectively target wrinkles, fine lines and boost radiance.
