Clarins Hydra Quench Tinted Moisturiser SPF15

This product is much more moisturiser than it is tint. The 50ml tube dispenses a lightweight lotion textured moisturiser which is very softly tinted. Clarins state this is for all skin types but having used it on both a combination and a dry skin it definitely performed better on the dryer.
 It contains hyluronic acid which is a huge moisture magnet. It helps skin maintain it's moisture levels which in turn gives skin a more plumped texture. The hyaluronic acid also helps with skin healing so great if you suffer flaky, scarred or acneic skin.
 Another interesting ingredient it has is Katafray bark extract. This is obtained through fair trade and is sourced in Madagascar. This also helps reinforce the moisture barrier in the skin. When blended with hyaluronic acid it is said to sense the climate you are in and help skin to adjust to the temperature. This is also SPF15 to protect in the sun although you will still need to wear sun screen in hot temperatures.

The tint in it is exactly that.. a tint. This product will not give you a coverage as such but naturally even out your skin tone. You can of course use a separate concealer on top if you feel like you need a little more cover.

It contains radiance boosting pearls which capture light and give a glowing radiant finish. Beautiful on a dry skin, slightly to sheer and shiny on a combination/oily skin we felt.

There are seven colours in all and we tested four of those available. The colours are all very peach toned. The peach pigment is great for reviving a dull complexion however it can make choosing the colour difficult. They are of course very sheer so if you made a wrong colour choice it wouldn't be too hard to make it work for you. Because of the warm peach undertones we would say opt for the slightly lighter colour than you think you will be. It will be much easyier to darken up with bronzer than tone down.

A lovely product for the beach if you want just a little bit of help without the foundation look and feel. Just don't forget your sunscreen underneath.

This is £30.00 and available from June 2014 from



  1. I'm definitely going to give the Clarins a try. I know it's a bit pricey, but it looks like it's worth it.

  2. This sounds perfect for holidays :)


  3. Supongo que mi tono sería el 01, pero veo una diferencia muy grande de tono entre 00 y 01.
