It is not surprising that face oils have a cult following. The good ones work to lock in moisture, repair and protect to leave skin glowing and smooth, and could be just the game changer you need to make a real difference to your skin. But if you are one that shies away from face oils because you think they are heavy in texture or leave a greasy residue, think again. The new Clarins’ Plant Gold is a unique creation that is packed with the goodness of pure plant oils to help you achieve glowing skin the natural way, with none of the weight.
Inspired by the expertise of Clarins Institute, where oils are mixed with other Clarins products to create customised blends, Plant Gold combines the iconic Blue Orchid Treatment Oil with a melting emulsion to boost effectiveness.
Don’t be fooled by its fluidity though, the liquid gold features an exceptional green cocktail of 100% plant extract, a combination of no less than 4 oils that are rich in fatty acids and antioxidants to deeply nourish all skin types. There’s virgin hazelnut oil, obtained by cold-pressing the nut, as well as macadamia, almond and grape seed plant oils that work together to nourish for more radiant and revitalised skin.
And if you’ve been mixing oils with moisturiser, you’ll be glad to know that this does that for you, but on another level. Each 35 ml bottle features a specially designed dual-chamber that holds an emulsion and an oil. When dispensed, the two formulas come together to create a unique oil-emulsion blend, an exceptionally sensorial mixture that instantly melts into skin, leaving it addictively soft and smooth.
The technique? Pump the oil-emulsion onto your palms and take a few deep breaths before application to take in the comforting scent of Patchouli essential oil. Next, gently press onto to cleansed skin, working from the face down to the neck and décolleté, twice daily. Whether you’re seeking a one-stop solution or are into layering products, this will definitely fit easily into any skincare routine. Priced at SGD110, Plant Gold is available at all Clarins boutiques, counters and of course, at clarins.com online.
