Hydra-Essentiel Silky Cream - Normal to Dry Skin
Rated 2 out of 5 by ohheyheather from Not for My Skin I received a sample of Hydra-Essentiel Silky Cream free to try. I used it morning and night for 5 days, and it left my skin feeling very textured and dry. It did not leave my skin smooth or hydrated as I had hoped. I have normal to dry skin (not sensitive), but this creme made my nose, chin, and t-zone especially bumpy. It also left my pores much larger than normal. However, this creme does have a thin, smooth feel, does not leave you feeling oily, and has a light, pleasant scent. I stopped using the product and my skin returned to normal in a day or two. Even though this is not good for me, it is a high quality product that may work for you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SkincareJunkie from Love this Creme So I received a sample of this creme for review and I used it with the serum and what I can say is that the serum is a long term goal to have skin that retain moisture longer, but the creme is instant gratification. I used it at night time after washing and after applying the serum. My skin felt comfortable going to sleep and waking up which usually it is one or the other. In the winter months my skin takes a beating but after using the moisturizer it looked radiant and felt amazing! Also loved the fact that there was a panthlette that went into detail about the secret ingredient and how that relates to your skin, all good knowledge to have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by akasharaine from Deep moisture! I love this moisturizer! Not only am I loving Clarins new blue and modern packaging, the moisturizer itself was spectacular. I have the normal to dry formula and my skin is combination and tends to get a bit greasy/sweaty during the day. I used this during the day once, and found it too heavy for day wear, but not as heavy as others I've tried. I have been using it every night for a week and I've found my skin is very clear, bright and soft. It absorbs quickly, and feels super luxurious. I would use this again as a night cream 100%! Note: received a complimentary sample of this product from influenster, but my opinions are honest :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tinated from Hydrating cream w/ fragrance When I received this to sample, I wasn't super excited because I wouldn't consider my skin dry. In fact, I was really concerned it would break out my pesky skin-- but I said I'd try it out, so I did. This didn't cause any breakouts, but it is a tiny bit too rich for my skin for day use. At night, it was totally fine. I don't think I could use this in summer. The one draw back is the added fragrance. It's pretty strong and doesn't really dissipate. Since this voyage with a Clarins product not really designed with my skin in mind went so well, I've ordered some more other items on my own to try out. (Clearly, the all opinions are my own).

Rated 4 out of 5 by Samantha82 from Perfect Hydration The Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Silky Cream is a great moisturizer, I've been using it nightly now for just over a week and my skin has not experienced any irritation. My skin is super sensitive so usually if I introduce a new product into my routine I will breakout but I haven't had any issues since using this cream. It is very gentle and very effective, my skin feels soft and fresh in the morning after applying the night before. I highly recommend this cream! I received this product complimentary to test from Influenster, and I'm super happy I was chosen to test this product out! This will definitely continue to be my go to moisturizer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Yunicornbeauty from Great light weight mo I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. Pros: Overall it is a great product. It is moisturing and absorbed quickly when applied. There is no smell to this product and it does not cause any breakout on my sensitive skin. Remind me a lot of the Neutrogena Aqual Gel Moisturizer which is cheaper and perform more or less the same Cons: Not very hydrating cream for a very dry skin it. It did not heal my dry patch completely even after 2 weeks of regular use. Overall a great product for normal skin or dry skin in the summer. Definitely recomended to those can afford to purchase this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by B333333333 from Creme of Hydra Received a sample size for testing purposes from influenster the review is based on my 1 week trial of the product. First and foremost I am a firm believer in non comeogenic items as they do not clog your pores and helps you to maintain clean and in time clear skin. This product is non comeogenic and dermatologist tested. So it's passed test 1. I then checked the item for texture and smell, it's definitely non greasy creme formula and it is absorbed in the skin very quickly when applied. The smell is super sweet but the scent is gone by the time you apply to your face and is very faint to non existant. So it's passed test 2.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sweetcreekmoon from My skin loved this product This product is new to me but something I wanted to try because my skin takes a beating during the winter months with the accompanying freezing temperatures. The cream worked well on my skin. It was easy to apply and left no residue at all. The scent has some definite lasting power which I could do without. I'd like perfume to be what I leave in my wake and not scent of skin care. With the small I amount I had to work with I can say that it did what it claims: hydrates and protects. However, I'm not certain it does it any better than products I'm already using. The Hydra-Essential Creme came as a complimentary sample. The opinions expressed belong to me.
