Our motivation to perform a 13-step skincare routine went out the window around the time everyone started buying tie-dye sweatsuits in bulk. We’re le tired, and we want skincare products that do the most, so we can do the least … and still look radiant, ofc. The products that we rely on to keep us looking glowy, well-rested, and like we haven’t aged decades in the past two years: Clarins Double Serum and Double Serum Eye.
Double Serum is Clarins’ best-selling anti-aging product, for good reason. It contains a blend of 21 potent plant extracts that give our skin an immediate boost while also fighting the visible signs of aging over time. Read: fine lines and wrinkles are minimized, plus skin is firmer, with less visible pores, and super hydrated. Unlike some serums, this one absorbs into the skin quickly and isn’t too sticky.
Double Serum Eye is also key in our routines. It gives the benefits of a gel and a cream treatment—it both tightens and hydrates around the delicate eye area. The lightweight formula is made with 96 percent natural ingredients and contains 13 plant extracts. Powerhouse ingredients like avocado and turmeric help reduce lines, puffiness, and dark circles in just seven days. AKA, it makes us look like we consistently get a solid eight hours of shut-eye despite sleep-procrastinating basically every night.
We’ve found that the best way to apply the products is taking a few extra moments to follow the brand’s lymphatic drainage method (Clarins was born in a spa so knows a thing or two about application). The eye cream comes first; gently press it over the upper and lower eyelids and from the inner corners of the eyes out to the hairline. Then warm the face serum in the palms of the hands, and use the entire hand to place serum on the face, neck, and décolleté. Press the serum into the skin firmly—but also gently—from the center of the face toward the ears, the middle of the forehead toward the temples, and then from the chin down toward the heart.
Not only does this make all those potent actives even more effective, it also stimulates lymphatic drainage so our faces are less puffy—great in general but especially helpful after a night of chips, salsa, and margs. Shop both products below.
