When it comes to summer skincare, I’m all about having glowy, moisturized skin. It means I can leave foundation at the door and jump head first into my favourite BB creams and bronzers. But since I have sensitive skin which can easily feel dehydrated, I like to really focus on hydration at this time of year.

That’s why I’ve turned to Clarins recently to really keep my face in check. After using a pump or two of their glorious serum (here) I’ve been following it up with their Hydra-Essentiel moisturizer. Packaged in a beautiful blue glass jar, the cream feels rich and soothing to apply, and leaves my skin feeling super soft.

Designed for skin that’s normal to dry, there is some serious technology at work. Clarins have included organic, medicinal kalanchoe extract, which is a powerful natural hydration activator that boosts the skin’s hyaluronic acid production. This means that after application, skin feels seriously plumped and is primed for makeup.

The cream feels absolutely glorious to apply, and sinks easily into skin. I love to keep my jar in the fridge so that it feels super cooling to use. It’s the perfect summer moisturiser, especially when used alongside the serum.

The cream also smells incredible – it’s a light, fresh, summery scent which makes getting ready an absolute joy!

Clarins Hydra-Essential Silky Cream is priced at £36.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
