Guerlain is a brand that I have trusted for years. And it is one of those brands from which I expect luxury and performance at the same time. I attended the launch event for the new Double R Serum last month. I am also sharing two makeup products from Guerlain which I have been using regularly in my routine. Keep reading to know my thoughts on Guerlain Double R Serum.
Guerlain Double R Renew & Repair Serum
Guerlain Double R Renew & Repair Serum combines the ultimate anti-aging corrective technology from Abeille Royale with a soft-peel treatment for highly effective action on the visible signs of aging: loss of skin elasticity and firmness, wrinkles, dull skin, imperfections, large pores.
‘Renew / Innovative Soft Peeling Technology – Three major acids (lactic, citric and glycolic) are gradually diffused, resulting in a gentle and continuous “new skin” effect: skin texture is refined and radiance is restored. Their slow and constant journey between the maze-like strata of the “lamellar gel” formula optimizes skin tolerance. This makes daily application possible and limits the risk of redness or skin reactions. Its progressive diffusion delivers a combination of AHAs that doubles skin renewal while remaining gentle on the epidermis.**
Repair / Exclusive Lifting Effect Technology – It took eight years of collaboration with the leading figures of the French Cosmetic Valley to shed light on the role of this gene. Like a skin repair “contractor”, it encourages proper skin structure. By targeting this new entity, the Repair formula helps to both stimulate the synthesis of hyaluronic acid and repair fragmented collagen. The formula helps create and restructure substance for firmer, more elastic skin and sharper contours.'
My Thoughts on Guerlain Double R Renew & Repair Serum
First, the packaging of the serum is beautiful, divided into two completely separate parts. The bottle maintains the integrity of each formula until the moment of application. When pressed, the pump releases just the right dose of each formula to ensure optimal effectiveness. The texture of the serum is creamy and smooth, glides and soaks into the skin rapidly.
I have been using this new serum as a single treatment. After toning, I follow up with this serum and then use Guerlain Youth Watery oil. Then, I follow up with moisturizer. I have been a long-time fan of this and on my second bottle already, reviewed here.
I have been really noticing my skin is radiant. The quality and texture of the skin are improved. My skin looks and feels smooth, fuller, and supple. I am really liking the results and what better season could it be to test this other than fall. The skin peeling is very gentle. I do not feel any irritation or sensitivity, but the skin looks refined and has improved texture. It is gentle yet effective, can be used day and night. One pump is all I need for my full face and an extra pump for my neck and decollete. It does not feel sticky or oily on the skin. It absorbs nicely giving a beautiful glow to the skin at the time of application as well as during the day. I do not feel any dryness or breakouts from using this.
Guerlain Terracotta 2018 – Terracotta Light
Guerlain Terracotta 2018 – Terracotta Light is the new formula of Guerlain Terracotta enriched with skincare. The active ingredients combined with a blend of subtle shades to revive the complexion with a featherlight touch. It is designed like a multi-toned springtime sun. It is adorned with fine pearl particles to warm up the complexion with a sheer finish. Pink and coral rays create a fresher complexion and more vibrant skin. It is perfect for a sun-kissed healthy glow and a natural result.
This perfect balance comes in six harmonies to beautifully enhance every type of beauty. It is infused with a cocktail of antioxidant active ingredients. Vitamins C and E and energizing minerals help the skin to protect itself against free radicals and pollution. Glowing with vitality, the complexion has never been so radiant. Last but not least, its texture is as light as a second skin. And its sunny ylang-ylang and orange blossom fragrance is a real delight.
My Thoughts on Guerlain Terracotta 2018 – Terracotta Light
Being a fan of Classic Terracotta, I am well aware of how cult and beautiful this product is. The Classic Terracotta was the first product I purchased from Guerlain and I have never looked back. It is one of my all-time favourites bronzers. After seeing this new launch, I was so excited to try it and I am happy I did. The two shades work in harmony to give a beautiful sunkissed look to the complexion which looks fresh as well as natural. It is perfect for a vacation or for daily use which looks radiant yet natural. The powder is finely milled, buildable, and the texture is very smooth, blends in the skin seamlessly.
Guerlain Meteorites base
Guerlain Meteorites base is another product I have been using for the last few months as a makeup base. It is a skin-perfecting and anti-dullness make-up base. The fresh gel texture melts with rosy pearls to give the skin a plumpy finish. While a combination of absorbent powders and a special polymer neutralizes excess sebum. It helps to conceal blemishes for a long-lasting matte complexion that gradually becomes more even with each application. Multi-coloured pearlescent flecks maximize the diffusion of light and delicately correct the complexion, the signature of the Météorites range. It has a delicate violet fragrance, inimitable and totally addictive.
My Thoughts on Guerlain Meteorites base
At first, I thought it might be pinkish or whitish for my medium tan skin tone with golden undertones. However, as I started using it, It has a neutral finish on the skin but it does works in creating a nice base for makeup, controls my oily areas on the skin, makeup stays on put for almost the whole day when I have this on. I do feel it blurs out my problem areas and gives a natural radiance to the skin.
For your reference, I love the original Meteorites powder. I use it on days when nothing else works. Or when my skin is behaving I reach out to it for blurring effect and radiance. I do love the L'Or primer (reviewed here) from Guerlain which is my most favourite. I would say they both are classic but I do love my L'Or a little more than this.
The new Guerlain Double R Serum is perfect to give all in one repair, protection, and maintenance.
