There’s no perfect skincare routine, but there are certainly good ones. Take, for instance, Lancôme’s latest Clarifique range; with its focus on achieving skin clarity, the products help to improve skin tone and refine skin’s texture while leaving it smooth, hydrated and radiant.
At the heart of Clarifique, you’ll find their key ingredient, the French Beech Bud — which has been said to harness a gentle yet exfoliating action that accelerates skin renewal and clarity. Earlier this year, Lancôme introduced the Clarifique Dual Essence — a product that’s now a pillar of the Clarifique routine. Here’s the rest of the range that just launched:
1. Clarifique Pore Refining Cleansing Foam
Clogged pores can be the bane of our existence especially when we’re exposed to pollution and other impurities that clog up our skin daily. It’s hard to change our environment, but we can instead incorporate the Clarifique Pore Refining Cleansing Foam into our skincare regimes. With its unique blend of salicylic acid and the line’s key ingredient, the French Beech Bud, the foam lathers up to remove impurities, reduce the appearance of pores while leaving the skin brighter and more radiant than before.
Clarifique Pore Refining Cleansing Foam, $63. Available at SEPHORA and all Lancôme counters.
2. Clarifique Refining Enzymatic Dual Essence
At the core of this collection, the Clarifique Refining Enzymatic Dual Essence is a beauty essential that we recommend is the first thing you try from the Clarifique line. Launched earlier this year, it even made it to our February beauty favourites list. Formulated with a potent blend of French Beech Bud extract, the essence goes on after cleansing to exfoliate, refine and brighten the skin tone, while the bi-phase essence, made of linoleic acid-rich grapeseed oil and omega-6 fatty acids work to nourish skin with each use. Another unique attribute would also have to be the design-patented whisk that allows rapid mixing of the essences in the solution, which ensures you get the most out of the bi-phase formula, while giving your skin a smooth, sensorial experience thanks to the fresh micro-bubbles.
Clarifique Refining Enzymatic Dual Essence, $140. Available at Sephora and all Lancôme counters.
3. Clarifique Intense Whitening Spot Eraser
This Intense Whitening Spot Eraser from the range is targeted to visibly reduce marks with its unique blend of ellagic acid and yeast extract that works to banish hyperpigmentation. Other ingredients like the French Beech Bud in this product also help to smooth and refine skin’s texture for a more radiant and flawless finish. The Spot Eraser can be used on uneven or darker areas of the skin to reduce the colour and intensity of the dark spots by brightening the targeted spots.
Clarifique Intense Whitening Spot Eraser, $165. Available at SEPHORA and all Lancôme counters.
4. Clarifique Brightening Plumping Milky Cream
To finish off your routine, this Brightening Plumping Milky Cream by Lancôme delivers refining and brightening properties while plumping the skin. Powered by a potent blend of vitamin C derivative, niacinamide and French Beech Bud extract, the moisturiser comes with a soft, ultra-fresh texture that melts onto skin upon application. Simultaneously, the cream refines and brightens skin while plumping it, and finishes with a light and bouncy sensation.
