 The product

If you want to indulge in a bit of everyday luxury when it comes to your skin care routine look no further than an essence: a silky, lightweight form of hydration that sits somewhere between a toner and serum.

You may not see the value in adding an extra step to your routine but trust us when we say there is nothing better at delivering deeply-penetrating hydration and prepping the skin for optimum ingredient absorption, ensuring you reap the benefits of all your skin care heroes.

Lancôme Clarifique Dual Essence fits the bill here, delivering lasting hydration as well as brightening effects that work to clarify and tone the complexion for radiant, even-toned skin.

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Lancôme Clarifique Dual Essence.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Lancôme Clarifique Dual Essence to a panel of women aged between 18 and 40 looking for a hydrating, refining, soothing, brightening and radiating essence.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Lancôme Clarifique Dual Essence.

How it brightened their complexion: Our reviewers were impressed by the brightening properties of the essence, with one member saying: “This product isn't what I expected at all, it made my face so fresh and bright.”

The way it improved tone: Members loved the way the essence evened out their skin tone, minimising the appearance of dark spots and dull skin for a more radiant, even-toned appearance.

How hydrating it was: Members really appreciated the lightweight hydration the essence offered, in fact, some reviewers said they would consider swapping out their toner for a more hydrating essence option.

The verdict

“This is the first essence I have tried in my routine and let me just say that I’m hooked. It brightened my complexion and smoothed the skin out - a perfect base to then finish my routine with moisturiser. Overall I believe this product is great for brightening and I would definitely recommend it for anybody looking to splurge on a high-end essence.”

“My skin was definitely brighter and more hydrated, and it was pleasant to use once I got the hang of application. I have very sensitive skin and I found this didn't irritate my skin at all, which is a massive bonus. I did feel like my skin quality improved over the weeks I used it, which you can't put a price on. As part of an everyday routine, this is a lovely product that is non-irritating and does show results.”

“I have really really enjoyed this essence by Lancome. Immediately it felt so nice on my skin and I liked the way my skin looked after using it, it definitely helped make my pores appear smaller. I would definitely say that the essence has helped with brightness and hydration for my skin. It is a watery texture which helps it absorb quite quickly into the skin.”
