All about: Clarins Double Serum Eye


Super-charged and reformulated since its launch quite a few years ago now, Clarins Double Serum is a modern beauty icon. With true cult status, the “Complete Age Control Concentrate” was originally formulated to help work on the five vital functions of the skin for a more radiant complexion via a formula that combines two serums in one. Now containing 21 active plant extracts including star ingredient Turmeric, distinguished for its exceptional anti-aging properties, the newest version of Double Serum also comes innovative bottle that delivers a made-to-measure dosage of the serum, thanks to its rotating push button

In great news for fans of the brand, the anti-ageing expertise of Double Serum is now available for your eyes – and on counter this September. A global age-control concentrate with a texture that is in perfect bio-affinity with the eye contour, the 96 per cent natural formula is enriched with 13 plant extracts. These include organic Wild Chervil for its strengthening benefits (more on that below), and the aforementioned Turmeric for a complementary, double action on the skin’s five vital functions: regeneration, oxygenation, nutrition, hydration and protection.

On the science side of things, Clarins research highlighted the key role alpha-v integrins play in skin: they are proteins that ensure the proper cohesion of cells. With age, the amount of these integrins around the eye contour drastically diminishes. This can lead to the slowing down of the skin’s five vital functions which promote a youthful eye area, and the exacerbation of fine lines, dark circles and puffiness. A key plant discovery behind a younger-looking eye area is the aforementioned organic Wild Chervil extract. Three years of research saw 196 plants studied by Clarins Laboratories, who chose organic Wild Chervil extract for its extraordinary ability to boost the production of alpha-v integrins which helps the skin regain strength and vitality thanks to proper cellular cohesion.


But also importantly: how does it feel on the skin? A double formula whose phases mix together when applied, before fusing together like a second skin, the new Double Serum feels like somewhere between a gel and a cream to me, and I’m here for that. There is zero oily feel and a little tightening sensation on application that feels really rather satisfying, and I love that it absorbs instantly so plays well with concealer.

Whether you’re a Double Serum fan or not, I highly recommend you give this baby a whirl.
