As a beauty blogger it is always exciting when new products and brands are launched, so when some products from the new Clinelle Hydra Calm range, landed on my desk, I couldn’t wait to try them.. 

The Clinelle Hydra Calm range promises to lock in moisture for up to 72 hours, while protecting all layers of the skin against environmental exposure which can lead to skin issues such as fine lines or dry and dull skin. The products are very affordable, and I love that they are made without any harmful ingredients that can irritate the skin, such as parabens, artificial colours and fragrance, mineral oil, alcohol and comedogenic ingredients, which means that the products are suitable for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin.

The products among others contain; 

  • Natural Hyaluronic acid to penetrate deeper into the skin to replenish and lock in moisture for 72 hours, and restore the unique water binding ability in the skin 
  • Pure Swisse Thermal Spring Water, to infuse maximum hydration to the skin to revitalise the skin, and maintain a pH level of 5.5 (optimum skin health level) 
  • Bio-calm complex to calm, restore, and strengthen the skin's defence system 

I put a selection of products to the test, including the Clinelle PureSwiss Hydra Calm Cleansing Gel. This cleanser is free from sulfates, so it is super gentle - yet it gives the skin a deep cleanse, removing impurities and the excess sebum to help minimise clogged pores, blackheads and breakouts, yet without stripping the skin from its natural moisture. It is also very effective at removing makeup, though it struggles with eye makeup, but then, most cleansers do, and I personally always use a specific eye makeup remover anyway, so I really don't mind. And afterwards my skin feels so clean, soft and smooth. It has a gorgeous floral scent, and I love that as it does not contain any artificial fragrance, it comes from the various flower extracts that ha been added.

Then there's the Clinelle Pure Swiss Hydra Calm Sleeping Mask, which is a cream gel that is to be applied at night onto cleansed skin, and left on overnight, and rinsed off the next morning.

The mask has a light gel consistency that transforms into water droplets when applied on skin, and it absorbs quickly into the skin without any greasiness. It has an immediate cooling effect on the skin, it promises to provide optimum hydration and brightening effects to the skin, so you'll wake with a rejuvenated and refreshed skin the next morning. I am actually surprised at its lightness, you can easily mistake this for a light gel day cream.

Intense masks are not usually ideas for combination skin prone to breakouts, such as mine - but the mask also promises to help minimise clogged pores, blackheads, and breakouts.

I've been using it a few times a week, and I am not sure I've actually seen any difference in the amount of breakouts that I've been getting since using this. But I can definitely confirm that my skin feels so lovely, soft and smooth the next morning, clearly enjoying the intense moisture. The mask comes in a gorgeous turquoise glass jar with a silver lid, and it has a lovely gentle floral scent.

Finally, there's the Clinelle Purifying Blemish Clear, which is an anti-blemish gel that promises to effectively clear blemishes by drying targeted skin area, while soothing the irritated skin at the same time. The Blemish Clear is a white cream that absorbs immediately into the skin, without any trace, so it is suitable for us under makeup too.

It contains among others salicylic acid, tea tree and other natural plant extracts such as lemon peel oil, licorice root extract, sesame seed extract, lavender oil, and thanks to these ingredients - unlike other blemish products, this one doesn't smell so chemical and harsh, but actually rather pleasant. I received this blemish treatment at the perfect time, with a few annoying and stubborn deep-set blemishes - but within just a few applications, they had clearly reduced in size, and without irritating my skin or drying it out. So a very effective treatment indeed.

Overall these are really lovely products, and at such affordable prices too. If I had to pick a fave, it would have to be the Sleeping Mask as it is so lovely and light, yet so refreshing too, and I will also have to vouch for the Blemish Clear as it is clearly a very efficient treatment.
